TexasGOPVote Blogger Endorsements: Larry Perrault

I had left a couple of races indeterminate. In the US Senate race, I expressed the priority of unseating John Cornyn; not because I dislike him or doubt his sentiments. But the calculating reticent tactics of traditional Republicans has to go if this country is going to have any shot at rising out f its current hole. If Texas is going to help the effort, Cornyn shows no inclination to be a part of it. I previously said I thought Steve Stockman had the best opportunity to stop him. But let’s consider the situation. Stockman’s lackluster campaign trails Cornyn considerably. But a runoff possibility is not in the total of the runner-up, but in the leader’s failure to garner

U.S. vs. Darby Lumber Co. (1941) is one of the most destructive Supreme Court decisions ever handed down by the high court. Through this decision the Court gave near unlimited application of the Commerce Clause—thus being a precursor to the Obamacare decision issued by the Roberts Court—which consequently gutted the 10th Amendment of all the Founders’ intended meaning. Justice Stone, writing for a unanimous Court, wrote
