Martha McSally

"Getting our fiscal house in order is not just about budgets; it's an economic imperative. A government that spends within its means spurs growth, protects investments in critical government functions, and ensures we hand future generations a strong and secure country."

The Texas Bill of Rights, Art. I, Sec. 2 and 29 guarantees Texas to be a Republic and any legislation contrary to the preservation of our republican form of government is prohibited. Everything in the Texas Bill of Rights is held to be inviolate.   Read more »

Interface with Big Brother

I touched last week on the politics of transhumanism. Technology that feeds information directly to our senses and/or sends data from our bodies to the Internet and machines without the more indirect input by a key board or voice command will soon become common, less the realm of science fiction or cutting edge aide for the handicapped or injured. Big Brother would like to do more than watch.   Read more »

Friday, I sent a letter to U.S. Air Force Secretary Michael B. Donley listing serious concerns with alarming reports indicating 17 members of the Afghan military have gone AWOL over the course of two years from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Say No To a Balanced Budget Amendment

I dare say that all conservatives favor balanced budgets. However, a Constitutional Amendment would not stop the big spenders in Congress.

HR 4213 is not a simple bill designed to fix a couple of problems.   Read more »
