The Glenn Hegar for Texas Comptroller campaign has come out with a new tv ad. The new ad is titled “Our Future.” One of my favorite lines of this new ad is that Hegar chaired a committee to eliminate waste and inefficiency in government, saving taxpayers millions.

It was suggested that, The Constitution include a bill of inviolable rights. Some including the primary author James Madison, opposed such on two arguments. 1) Those limitations were implicit in The Constitution’s enumeration of limited powers.

US Senator
I have supported John Cornyn in the past. I believe he is a genuine conservative who cares about Texas and The Constitution. But I can’t support him at this point. The time for the genteel status quo push-pull is past, and Cornyn has been too taken up by party Leadership of which he is a part. I agree with Cornyn and others who say they have the same ideals as more conservatives, but may differ on tactics. Yes, it’s their tactics that I think are ineffectual. We will act decisively to rescue a buried constitutional ideal or it will be suffocated under heresies and defiance of it.

Primary Colors – Part 4 – “All Politics Are Local”

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting has started. This is the fourth of four in a series. (This first three are here, here & here). I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Last, for those of you in Harris County, there is a small but vocal group who wants "change" in the county leadership, currently Jared Woodfill, to a recycled challenger Paul Simpson, who has run several prior unsuccessful campaigns against Jared, largely supported by moneyed interests. The challenger’s clarion call is twofold--that the county party books are not open to all and that we lost Harris County
