Rafael Cruz Endorses Debbie Georgatos’ book, Ladies, Can We Talk? America Needs Our Vote!

Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas’ great senator Ted Cruz, works tirelessly to inform voters all over America of the dangers of letting America’s far left Democrats lead our country down to the pits of socialism. His early life in Cuba makes him a first hand witness to the evils of tyranny and socialism. He is also a pastor, and works to encourage other pastors to speak more freely in the pulpit about the issues America is facing. He is a powerful and persuasive advocate for liberty.   Read more »

RedState 2013 Rocked! Part Three: Nikki Haley at RedState 2013

Erick Erickson’s RedState gathering for 2013, held in New Orleans over the first weekend in August, featured so many great speakers that it is not possible or reasonable to write about all of them. Governors, senators, members of Congress, and candidates for all of those positions, spoke, and all were confident, articulate and passionate.

Working for years now with so many Republican women’s organizations in Texas and nationally, I am very aware that many brilliant and thoughtful women are active in Republican politics. While that is great news, it is also true that not enough of them choose to run for public office.   Read more »

RedState 2013 Rocked! Part Two: Calling in the Cavalry

The fifth annual RedState convention in New Orleans, RedState 2013, over the first weekend in August, featured plenty of stellar Republicans, conservatives, governors, senators, Congressmen and candidates. RedState Founder Erick Erickson screens, selects and invites the speakers, so their caliber reflects his.

Many speakers addressed not only the leftists who are desperately working to destroy our liberties and free market system,

RedState 2013 Rocked! Part One: Ted Cruz and Defunding Obamacare “Don’t Blink”

I was fortunate enough to join other conservative Americans from all over the country assembled at Erick Erickson’s fifth annual RedState gathering, RedState 2013 in New Orleans over the first weekend in August. Speakers included governors, senators, congressmen, candidates and a Tea Party Patriot leader. Every one of them inspired and informed.

The three most compelling takeaways:

  • US Senator from Texas Ted Cruz is the co-author of the best and probably only vehicle to bring down Obamacare, through defunding it.

Standing for Women! The Texas Abortion Bill and the Demise of Slogans

The Texas Capitol building and grounds were filled with competing blue vs. orange shirts during the debate in Texas over a law that would limit abortions past 20 weeks/5 months of pregnancy, and require abortion facility upgrades. The bill’s supporters and opponents rallied at the State House, the supporters wearing blue, and the bill’s opponents choosing orange.

Both sides claimed the high ground and the slogan “Stand with Texas Women.”   Read more »

What Standing Up for Liberty Meant in 1776

Along with all the patriotic joy and hoopla of fireworks, family barbeques and parades that will mark the celebration of America’s 237th birthday this year, most of us also pause to honor the courage of our Founders who wrote and proclaimed the Declaration of Independence. You can read the text of the Declaration here.

That Declaration was and is one of the most consequential and profound documents in all of the world’s history. It was a civilization-altering statement that all of us have rights from our Creator. These are rights, they explained, that belong to all of us — innately and absolutely — regardless of what any government says.

State Rep. Jason Villalba’s Teacher Appraisal Bill is Another Vital Step Toward Upgrading Texas Public Schools

Texas’ 83rd Legislative Session features an important theme, reflected in numerous pending bills: the determination to improve the public education system, and to protect and advance school choice, especially for low-income families. Texas Republicans are leading the way.

One aspect of upgrading public schools, reviewing the caliber of our teacher performance appraisal process,

“The Uninvited” Breitbart Session on Saturday Afternoon

CPAC 2013 included some controversy, which resulted in the team sponsoring a hastily organized session on Saturday afternoon that featured a panel of prominent thought leaders on the American Right who were “uninvited” by the CPAC board.

This year CPAC excluded presentations by conservatives whose messages and missions concern the threat of radical Islam, jihadists, at home and abroad.

Scoop from CPAC: The Women’s Panel

Two days after I returned home from CPAC 2013, I met with a small group of conservative friends in Dallas and one asked what was my favorite part of CPAC. I did not and cannot choose my favorite speaker or panel, because so many were fabulous. But the all-women panel that made abundantly clear that liberal policies constitute an ongoing and long-term real war on women’s progress, was among my favorites.   Read more »

CPAC 2013 and the Presidential Hopefuls

Fellow TexasGOPVote blogger Tom Donelson recently wrote about some of the CPAC 2013 speakers who stand out as possible 2016 Presidential contenders, listing Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Rand Paul.

I respectfully add to that list Ted Cruz, Allen West, Governors Scott Walker and Jeb Bush, and a long shot but very popular person, Dr. Ben Carson of Prayer Breakfast fame.

CPAC also featured Texas Governor Rick Perry, whose presence seemed to signal interest in running for President, although he has frequently told audiences
