Legal immigrants have benefited America since its founding. Our Founders genius was to create a system of government rewarding immigrants with freedom and prosperity if they put forth the effort and played by the rules. Today, unfortunately, we are at a tipping point. Our current laws have allowed too many to come here.
Democrats preferring open borders want all to come. To them, illegal immigration is about one thing: more votes for their candidates. Despite the carnage of cartels or women being sexually assaulted they do not seem to care. They only care about power. They apparently would object only if it was their child who was raped or it was their wife who died of an overdose of a cartel supplied drug.
Democrats and their constituents are all weak. They always prefer to take the easy way. Continue reading
Thanks for attending the Caucus.
I am Vern Wuensche pronounced as win she. From Houston. I grew up on a farm in the small Texas town near Austin called McDade. My father was a handyman at a brick plant my mother worked in a laundry.
I worked my way thru the University of Texas in Austin receiving a BBA in accounting and an MBA in management, graduating first in my class. I hold a CPA certificate.
After being an auditor with several Big 8 CPA firms and controller of several homebuilding companies, with $6,000, I started my own residential construction company and have survived it for 35 years to become Houston’s third oldest. One unsuccessful competitor on a home I built later built the home of the elder George Bush.
While running my business I worked in politics and studied the presidency for 40 years. I became somewhat of an expert on presidential politics. And those 40 years taught me that business people who are continually trained to make better and better decisions make the BEST public officials.
Which is why I ran for the Republican nomination for President in 2008. I spent 50 days visiting 3,000 businesses in 142 towns in 79 counties in your state, did similarly in New Hampshire and placed tenth in both your state and New Hampshire.
Most voters I met were simply looking for a candidate possessing the personal qualities to improve their lives. Continue reading
Educated citizens are without doubt the key to America’s prosperity and growth. Yet government run public schools have produced meager results. This despite the near monopoly they have had on educating America’s children for at least one hundred years. Continue reading
I ran for president to win in both 2008 and 2012 despite being an extremely long shot. I ran to share my view of the necessary personal qualities a good president must possess. And finally I ran to do what I could to increase the number of good candidates running. Continue reading
The office held by any public official has an aura of glamour and power. And voters often unfortunately focus on that image when they vote for a candidate. They should not.
Their view to the contrary should be based on the personal makeup of the candidate: his bundle of personal qualities. Continue reading
The second stop on the path to the Presidency is the New Hampshire Primary. It is the first election in choosing a party’s nominee.
New Hampshire is similar in population to Iowa having 1,323,459 citizens but having only 7 counties compared to Iowa’s 99. Voters in their 2012 primary election totaled 248,485 voters. Continue reading
The path to the Presidency for Republicans always goes through Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. In recent history, to win the Republican nomination a candidate must win either in Iowa or New Hampshire and then prevail in South Carolina. Continue reading
Fidel Castro over a period of fifty years turned the very nice country of Cuba into a pathetic Communist state. He now is quite possibly near death. Six administrations resisted the natural humanitarian urge to make it easier for Cuba’s inhabitants, and instead kept the pressure on Castro to change his ways and allow freedom for all. As he soon will be gone this could have been possible. Continue reading
Senator Feinstein recently proved once again that the most important characteristic of any public official is their personal make up. Senator Feinstein who in the past has been respected by many to be strong on national defense did her reputation significant harm in creating and making public a one sided report on the CIA’s handling of the interrogation of terrorists showing the CIA in a VERY unfavorable light. Continue reading
Last year Metro made an attempt to take one fourth of every dollar of sales tax you pay. Twenty-five cents of every sales tax dollar had long been allocated to the surrounding communities for their transportation needs. However Metro coveted it and set up a November referendum to take it away. But Houston business leaders Louis Macey, Walter Mischer, Jr., Dick Weekley and others stepped up with financing and their personal clout to defeat it. The well known Barry Klein plus myself who have been critics of Metro and supporters of limited government since its inception spoke out.
