Obama Zombies On Inauguration Day 2013

“All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do, that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.” -Michelle Obama 2008 Democrat Convention


The last time we were in Washington, DC in the winter time it was 2009. We usually don't go to DC in the winter because it’s too cold for us Texans. But this year was a little different as we had planned on going to the Black Tie and Boots Texas Ball to celebrate Mitt Romney’s win.

Stand or Stand Down? Wrestling With the Future.

It’s taken me a few days to gather my thoughts and regroup after Tuesday’s devastating loss for America. Quite a few questions have been raised after America’s loss to Obama: where does the GOP go from here? Do we need to change our message? Do we need to move left? Do we need to be more conservative? Do we need to form a third party?

These are all valid questions and we will be debating these things for many months and maybe even years to come. One thing is for certain – the America we had hoped still existed does not anymore. We have reached the tipping point. So do we stand or stand down? Honestly, I have been wrestling with that. Here’s what I conclusion I came to:   Read more »

How Could We Lose? But We Did! - Hangover

Tuesday’s presidential election was extremely disappointing and I was stunned as I was not expecting defeat. How could we lose? Obama spent more time on the golf course and traveling than working in the Oval Office. How could we lose? He watched our heroes die in Benghazi and did

What's Next?

The country is split but is also moving left of center. I am not interested in rerunning the campaign and worrying about who is to blame for what strategy. Every campaign makes mistakes, and the campaign takes on the character of the candidate on the top of the ticket. Let's be clear, both candidates set out clear agendas and Obama's agenda of increasing spending, furthering government interventions and crony capitalism won.

Immigration Reform - The Silent Issue in Presidential Politics

Guest Workers NeededPresident Obama made huge promises to the American people about what he would do about immigration. He promised voters he would pass true reform legislation in his first year in office. Not only did he not pass any kind of reform, he did not even propose anything. And this was during a time where he controlled the U.S. House and Senate and could have passed anything he wanted. He did nothing.

Now fast forward to the 2012 election.

Harris County Republicans Voting Strong - Still Need Your Vote - Analysis of Today's Vote and Early Voting

The Tax Man Paul BettencourtElection Day voting in Harris County is very stong in traditional Republican polling locations. This according to former Harris County Tax Man, Paul Bettencourt. In a conversation today Bettencourt said we could see voter turnout in strong Republican boxes as high as 80%. That said, this is not a time to sit back. While Hispanic voting boxes in Harris County are somewhat low at this point, other traditional Democrat polling locations

Insanity Definition (doing the same thing and expecting a different result) Illustrated in Cleveland, Ohio

Yesterday, the day before Election Day 2012, after completing my last “knock on door and distribute literature” assignment as part of the Mighty Texas Strike Force, I drove from the Cleveland suburbs into the city, to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections building. This election location was open for Early Voting on election eve, and the lines were literally multiple city blocks long.

En route from suburb to city, I passed through neighborhoods featuring sagging front porches, roofs missing more tiles than remained intact, litter strewn and weed-overgrown empty lots, more businesses shuttered than functioning, and a depressing sense of bygone bustle and business. The main still-in-business entities I saw were bars.   Read more »

As I have said for weeks now, this election is not about winning, it's about sending a message to Washington D.C. and to Austin, Texas. No more big government. No more big spending.

It's Election Day – Vote Today to Save Our Freedom, Liberty and Nation

My name is John Griffing. I'm an average patriotic American citizen, and I’m alarmed. I’m alarmed at the speed with which our country is giving away its precious freedoms, and I’m alarmed at the role our own president has played in this process. But, above all, I’m alarmed at how little is being done, that could and should be done, to STOP it.

Early on, our president told us he wanted to fundamentally change the United States of America. True to his word, he has worked tirelessly to undermine American sovereignty and economic strength, and to bring his own country to the brink of disaster. There’s no longer any need to build this case....the volume of evidence is
