March 2014 Texas Primary: Why Local Elections Matter

What do you think of when you hear the term 'nanny state'? Are you like me and you automatically think of some portly, elderly British woman with knee highs and thick dark glasses looking down her nose while standing over a small child? Does that term conjure up images of a tight, restrictive control over ones subjects, just aching for them to make the tiniest mistake so their privileges, or what's left of them, can be snatched away in one fail swoop? Wikipedia defines Nanny state as a term of British origin (and primary use) that conveys a view that a government or its policies are overprotective or interfering unduly

Primary Colors – Part 2 – Continuing Strong Leadership in the Attorney General’s office to Represent Texas Against Washington, D.C.

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. This is the second in a series. (The first is here.) I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Texas Attorney General

This race is perhaps as hotly contested if not more so than others I’ve written about, as there are two genuinely conservative candidates, Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman and Senator Ken Paxton. Both have committed supporters I know and respect who have been “in the trenches” in the culture wars for years and even decades.

Primary Colors – Part 1 – “A Vote to Remember”

The March 4 primary is right around the corner and early voting starts Tuesday. First, understand that due to Gerrymandering, the VAST MAJORITY of elected officials win or lose their races in the primary. The November general election is mostly a rubber stamp of whatever candidate wins the primary for the dominant party in their district. I cannot overstate the importance of your vote and the impact it has in the primary.

Below are my researched endorsements for the upcoming primary. If a race is not listed, I have not yet made an endorsement in that race and may not. Many of you know that I am an engineer by training and profession, and like most engineers,

The People Choose, Not the Party: Taking Back Harris County from the Slates

The people choose, not the party! The people choose, not the party! Remember that chant? Oh, well, I guess you wouldn't unless you were at the Freedomworks Fly-In Bootcamp held in Washington, D.C. back in 2011. Myself along with fifty or so other activists from across the US gathered together for three days of intensive activist training. We then spent the last day putting our training into practice. See, we took a little field trip to protest the National Republican Senatorial

Senator Campbell SD25 Triumphs Over Opponents Chan And Novak

Senator Donna Campbell, the Champion of SD25, has been under constant attack from her detractors since her bid for reelection. It isn’t just the Left that is attacking her but some embittered members of the Right. The biggest attacks are coming from Terri Hall of TURF, Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom, the pro aborts, and of course her opponents in this race, Republicans Elisa Chan and Mike Novak, both from San Antonio.

Needless to say I am extremely disappointed with Libertarian Hall for using this race to discredit a very well respected and loved Senator to serve her toll road agenda. Just to clarify this statement, Senator Campbell did not vote to have toll roads in Bexar County.
