Texas House – NOT Conservative

Living in Texas is becoming a crazy adventure. The Texas Senate has passed a number of bills to reform the Ethics laws especially for those serving in Government, End Sanctuary Cities, Constitutional Convention of States, and Child Protective Services reform. These are all priorities our Governor stated in his State of the State address.

When the Senate and House began this session, I was sure the Senate would pass these bills. I was just as sure that the House would kill them if they possibly could do so. Well I received my copy of the Texas Scorecard and sure enough the House Speaker (RINO) Joe Strauss has held these bills not even sending them to committee for review and hearings. The only one of these items to move forward, albeit a House version, not the Senate version is Child Protective Services reform. What we have here is a House Speaker, who works hand in glove with the Democrats to kill anything that has a stamp of approval on it from conservatives. We can thank the City of San Antonio for Liberal Democrats and for RINO Joe Strauss.

Just to be sure I keep this non-partisan, I also wish to thank the gutless House Republican Caucus for keeping Strauss in the Speakers Chair. They did not even mount any kind of movement to replace him, so both Democrats and Republicans are in cahoots to make sure that conservatives cannot pass anything resembling fairness for the citizens of Texas. The House leadership even went so far as to physically attack a member who disagreed with a movement to suspend the rules to vote on a bill that had not been given a fair hearing. They wanted to kill School Choice in Texas!

Our Texas Attorney General has been under attack by the Liberals/Democrats since the election that brought him to the AG’s office. They have even gone so far as to sic the SEC on him with false charges of security fraud. He has been acquitted twice on that charge and the Federal District in North Texas has found him not guilty for the second time, basically saying that the SEC could not prove any wrongdoing by Attorney General Paxton. Of course there is another case pending in criminal court, using the same evidence that has been thrown out twice by the Federal Court. It has two special prosecutors one of whom has been the lawyer for the Bandido Motorcycle Gang, and has already been declared an unindicted co-conspirator in a case where he was the general counsel for the leadership (Bandido leadership).

Of course it would not be a complete rant if I did not mention that voter fraud is alive and well in the State of Texas. In one election in Hays County, an entire Ballot Box went missing, and in another part of the election there was a precinct with 420 registered voters, yet the actual vote tally showed 718 voters cast ballots. 170.95% voter turnout, that is amazing, considering that most elections are lucky to have 40% turnout.

If you live in Texas and are concerned about our politicians and our elections, as well as the attempts to steal money from our Rainy Day Fund so these politicians can spend more than they receive in taxes, you need to get the Texas Scorecard.

Voter Fraud

The following story appeared in Edinburg TX, having to do with of all things a School Board election.


South Texas school board election results nixed

(Information in the following story is from: The Monitor, http://www.themonitor.com)

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) A judge has overturned the results of a South Texas school board election after finding that votes were illegally cast.

The Monitor of McAllen reports visiting District Judge J. Manuel Ba ales ruled the Hidalgo County Elections Department allowed some voters who aren’t part of the school district to cast ballots in the November election.

Ba ales says removing those illegal votes means that Hidalgo school district trustee Mentor Cantu, who had lost to challenger Norma Garza-Torres, is the winner of the school board seat in question. Cantu was sworn into office on Friday.

Friday’s ruling doesn’t settle the November school board election as two other losing candidates still have a pending election lawsuit. New elections could also be ordered for Cantu and the two other losing candidates.”

The State of Texas passed a law requiring voter ID, the law was shut down by the Federal Attorney General because he said it discriminated against “minorities”. The truth of Texas is that we are all minorities in this state. The population shifts here have made it so that Hispanic persons outnumber other groups in many parts of the State. If you look at the names of the persons involved you will see that they were all Latino/Hispanic persons. Even the Judge who adjudicated the case. Would voter ID have helped in this case, I think it would have, but of course it was killed by AG Holder for reasons that no longer make any sense.

In my estimation, if you want to have everybody treated the same, which was supposed to be the reasons for the anti-discrimination laws in the first place, then voter ID makes great sense. It levels the playing field, it helps those who have been disenfranchised regain the vote that they might have lost for whatever reason. You see if you want to vote now, you have to present some kind of ID but anyone can get your ID just by going through your trash and picking up a thrown away electric bill or gas bill or some other kind of identifying document. Then they go and vote early, which in Texas is legitiment way to vote, and use the piece of paper they got from your trash to cast the ballot. Your name goes on the voter role as having voted.

Needing to have an ID with a picture on it will negate that problem. Is it hard to get this type of ID, NO it is not. We hear how hard it is for poor or elderly people to get to the place where they can get this ID. Wrong, we have all sorts of transportation for folks to use, including, but not limited to, public transportation. There are also local transportation vans for those who are unable to afford the bus, or who live in rural areas. The other side of that coin is that most of these folks already have photo ID, in the form of a drivers license. The arguments against this Voter ID law, are spurious and actually are discriminatory in that they are used to say that minority persons are poor and have no way to get to the issuing authority. That is a straw man of huge proportions set up by those who wish to dis-enfranchise those who they claim to be helping.

What do you think about this? Join the conversation, send a letter or email to your State Representative if you live in my State of Texas, contact your representative and tell them what you believe. Then tell the Dept. of (In)Justice what you think. Lets level the playing field so that all persons will have the right and privilege to vote in our elections, without having to worry about Voter Fraud.
