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.

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
There is good news for conservatives. Quoted by William Galston in the Wall Street Journal according to a survey by Alan Abramowitz, a political scientist at Emory University, “In 1972 29% of Democrats called themselves liberal or very liberal, a figure that rose by 18 points to 47% by 2012.

Let’s elect a CONSERVATIVE President!
We conservatives in our individual states have made great progress and continue to make great progress across America. Let’s continue this in Washington.
When I attended the rally of 11,000 Tea Party conservatives at Sam Houston Park the power and intelligence of the Tea Party movement of which I am a part was happily confirmed. It had earlier wisely rejected becoming a third party—a feel good gesture which would nevertheless have become fatal to its interests. Continue reading
