In this letter to the editor of the Conroe Courier, Bill O'Sullivan's message embodies what is best about Americans and why we work as hard as we do. His actions on behalf of our Tea Party have been true and honorable, like the Marines he loves and so proudly represents. It is such a privilege to work with him and other great Americans fighting to secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.
We have the fight we’ve been seeking

To the editor:
Sitting in my closet are the Dress Blues of a Captain of Marines.
There was no debate between Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain. It was a discussion, at best with Mr. Gingrich taking command of the stage while waxing philosophically about the issues. His command of the topics and language was reminiscent of President Ronald Reagan at times, in my opinion.
After Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich finished with the bloggers in the TexasGOPVote blogger room, we were joined by Gingrich adviser Peter Ferrara. Ferrera discussed a wide variety of economic topics with several of the bloggers.

If you want a winner in the Cain-Gingrich Lincoln style debate, it would be Newt Gingrich; simply because this format fits the one candidate who has the broadest knowledge of government and policy. This is not to say that Herman Cain did not have his moment and let’s be blunt; Cain did not have to win in the traditional sense for all he needed was to show that he could debate issues beyond a thirty second sound bite.

I attended the Herman Cain/Newt Gingrich debate Saturday night as a TexasGOPVote Blogger. I happen to see Cain and Gingrich as the best options for a Republican nominee, even before the debate, and for different reasons. There have been some questions on the part of some conservatives about some of Gingrich’s actions. But he has admitted to mistakes, as he did at the post-debate Blogger exchange. I could say more and would if asked, but that’s not the point, here. And things have been reported that most Americans might have trouble identifying with, but are not at all extraordinary for people who have attained the necessary means that Newt has. However, no one comes close to his knowledge of history and political possibility; it’s not even close. And Cain is an experienced business administrator and executive, who understands how wealth is created and what interferes with that. Read more »
Texas and the Texas Patriots’ PAC offered voters a genuine Saturday night special on November 5th, when Presidential hopefuls Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich debated in a serious, sit-down, punchy-sound-bite-free, substantive discussion on the issues surrounding reform of the three big federal entitlement programs, Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid.
Entitlement reform is not just a battle among legislative proposals, financial forecasts and competing budgetary priorities. At its core, this is a battle to achieve reform of the
