Think your representative is "REALLY" representing you??? Think again... and read this: The political elite in Washington thought you weren't looking last month when they slipped through a trillion-dollar spending bill, providing more taxpayer dollars to fund ObamaCare. Unfortunately, several of our own Texas Representatives voted for the massive Omnibus Spending bill (HR 3547) funding ObamaCare. This bill increased discretionary spending by $64 Billion, and it not only funds ObamaCare, but it also includes several other wasteful or dangerous spending items, like: $58.5 Million to expand the NICS firearm background check program; $85.2 Billion in war spending for overseas contingency operations; $5 Billion in IRS enforcement; $4.87 Billion to fund the TSA; $1.4 Billion for Amtrak train subsidies; $612 Million for "Head Start" programs. Worse yet, there were more Texas Republicans than Texas Democrats that voted to fund ObamaCare! That's right, some of the very Representatives that tell you at T.E.A. Part ...

The actions of Texas Republicans with regard to Hispanics this week have been shameful. First, Tea Party activists in McKinney referred to distinguished Senator Leticia Van de Putte as "Barrio Boopsie." Then, a former campaign staffer for Greg Abbott and Ted Cruz tried to organize a hateful "Catch an Illegal Immigrant" game at the University of Texas. So when GOP candidates make token trips to the Valley or take $1 million from the Republican National Committee for Hispanic "outreach," I can't help but shake my head. Like my grandpa always said: "You can put syrup on a cow pie, but that don't make it pancakes." I was raised to drink water out of the hose and treat people with respect. There's a reason that disgusting illegal immigration game did not happen on the UT campus today -- it's because Texans reject what's wrong and stand up for what's right. And no matter where we stand on immigration reform, around here we respect our immigrant friends rather than belittle them. If Greg Abbott and the GOP think ...

Rick Perry, Greg Abbott and Texas Republicans won’t want to hear this: yesterday was our biggest online fundraising day of the year. The polls show Wendy Davis can win. If we keep it going, Wendy will have what she needs to take on the anti-woman GOP and turn Texas blue. We’ve only got one female Democratic governor in the country right now, and I can think of no better person to change that. You’ve got 12 hours to give and help launch Wendy toward victory. Give now. Donate $3 or more to help us make a splash with our moneybomb to provide Wendy the resources she needs to win. We’ve got an opportunity here to deal a big blow to Republican extremists. If we can turn Texas blue, we can win anywhere. Thank you, Elisabeth Pearson Democratic Governors Association
I want Mr. Cruz stop falsely claiming he represents 27 million Texans. He does NOT represent me or the over three million Texans who voted for Paul Sadler in 2012. It isn’t even clear that he represents the nearly half million Texas Republicans who voted for Dewhurst in the runoff. Nor is it clear that he represents the Texas registered voters who did not vote or the millions of Texans who are not registered voters. He is not listening or representing millions of Texans.

Texas Republicans are moving forward with their second attempt at passing a new set of restrictive abortion laws, and appear poised to prevent state Sen. Wendy Davis—or any of the thousands of protesters and lawmakers who stand beside her—from stopping the legislation.
Wendy Davis supporters roar their approval at rally in protest at Texas abortion bill Davis headlines rally attended by several thousand people as legislators begin special session to try to force through bill Wendy Davis was rather more concise than a week earlier, but the effect of her latest speech was the same on Monday: cheers and chants from her energised legion of fans protesting the latest attempt by Texas Republicans to pass one of the country's most restrictive abortion laws. The state senator from Fort Worth headlined a rally, attended by several thousand people, as legislators prepared to begin a special session designed to force through the bill that was thwarted in large part thanks to Davis' marathon filibuster. Activists, actors and politicians joined Davis on the steps of the state capitol in Austin to protest against a Republican-backed bill that will ban abortions after 20 weeks and, opponents say, force all but five of the state's 42 abortion clinics to close. This time, Davis stood an ...

from FED UP with Governor Rick Perry- Perry signs into law and makes permanent a Congressional district map which was drawn by the Federal District Court and only meant to be temporary. Can you say, "future law suit?" "Earlier last year, Texas Republicans attempted to pass a more aggressive map, but a federal court in Washington, D.C., struck it down also under Section 5. A San Antonio-based federal court ordered lawmakers to use an interim map instead. "Last month, Perry called the state legislature into a special session to deal with the congressional and legislative maps. Republicans, who dominate both chambers in Texas, intended to pass the court-ordered interim map used in the 2012 elections into law. They accomplished that this week, sending the maps to the governor’s desk. "Texas Democrats could still challenge the map in court under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The high court did not touch that provision, which outlaws intentional discrimination in voting laws."

SB 5 would effectively end women's access to abortion as lawmakers have already done in several other flyover states as well as across the South.

So now that I've had a chance to reflect on my rant yesterday, which was primarily directed at my liberal friends, and especially now that Gov Perry is calling a special session, it's time to write something directed at my conservative friends. I feel that my outrage yesterday at the Texas Democrats' (and much of the country's) response to SB5 is justified. To me, the liberals demonstrated what they believe in: abortion on demand without any restrictions or concerns for the well being of women or the society at large. That said, it is time for us right to life folks to step back for a moment and recognize this bill for what it is. This is Governor Perry and the Republican party reshaping the argument. The Republicans are now offering their own version of abortion on demand. Somewhere along the way, Texas Republicans decided that they will present a pro abortion bill that will put in place a few regulations. Due to the fact that this is a "conservative" bill and due to the fact that the Democrats reacted s ...

All Three Senators Who Voted Against John Kerry Are Pro-Keystone XL, Anti-Science, Climate Deniers Repost This Comment on this StoryEmail this story The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved the nomination of Sen. John Kerry as the new Secretary of State, by a vote of 94-3. The three "no" votes were cast by infamous climate denier James Inhofe (R-OK), and two anti-environment Texas Republicans, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. All three Republican Senators, Cornyn, Cruz and Inhofe signed the letter to President Obama last week calling for the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would lead to the expansion of the Alberta tar sands, one of the dirtiest megaprojects on earth. John Kerry is praised for his environmental record as a Senator, and he's widely anticipated to uphold his leadership role on climate change issues as Secretary of State. During his confirmation hearings, Kerry promised to make climate change a top priority at State. "I will be a passionate advocate about this, but not based on ideology ...

Knowland’s plan: Ride to victory on the back of Proposition 18, the initiative to make right-to-work the law in the Golden Land. Prop. 18 was rejected 2 to 1. Knowland’s career was over, and the Republicans were decimated nationally for backing right-to-work. Badly burned, the party for years ran away from the issue. This history makes what happened in Michigan, cradle of the United Auto Workers, astonishing. A GOP legislature passed and Gov. Rick Snyder signed a right-to-work law as libertarian as any in Red State America. The closed shop, where a worker must belong to the union before being hired, is dead. The union shop, where an individual must join the union once hired, is dead. The agency shop, where a worker cannot be made to join a union but can be required to pay dues if the ...

There are no moderates. Not anymore. There is a left and a right and those who say they are moderates are surrendering to the left. Like a famous man from Texas once said; “you’re either with us or against us.” Some people just don’t want to accept the truth because they just can’t believe that it could happen here. Some may eventually see the truth. But, it will only happen when it directly affects them and they are unable to rationalize or shift blame elsewhere. A normal person when faced with indisputable evidence will capitulate to the truth. This is not the case for many on the left. They are so convinced they are doing the right thing that facts no longer matter. The republicans in Washington must be and act like conservatives. If they don’t they must go, period. If we are unable to do this then a third party is the only option. The timing is better than it has been for the last one hundred years. What have we got to lose?

Information from William L. Cawthon, a founding LS member and author of our study, "The South As Its Own Nation." Public Policy Polling, of Raleigh, North Carolina, rated as the most accurate in its last poll for the 2012 Presidential election, has recently released extremely interesting and valuable data on polls it took between November 30 and December 2, 2012 for the U. S. and for Georgia. You should go to this site for details. The questions include this one: Do you favor the secession of your State because of Barack Obama's reelection? The results are amazing. Eighteen percent (18%) of all the people polled in the U. S. favour the secession of their State because of Obama's reelection, as do 26% of Georgians. One-half of Georgia Republicans who have an opinion (42%), favour the secession of Georgia! As I recall, this is the exact relative percentage of Texas Republicans who favoured the secession of Texas from a poll of a year or two ago. The cross tabs also give the date for age group, i ...

Are there any exceptions? No — although lots of Texans believe their state has a special "opt-out" clause (31 percent, according to a 2009 Rasmussen poll). Part of that may be due to Gov. Rick Perry (R), who told a crowd that year that when the former Republic of Texas "came in the Union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave, if we decided to do that." But he was wrong, says Jeff Turrentine at Slate. "Texas' so-called 'right' to secede is no more than a politically emboldening myth, the boastful residue of the decade it spent as a sovereign nation before joining America." Still, the Lone Star State does have "an unusual ace up its sleeve" — its annexation papers do allow Texas to unilaterally split in to as many as five states. Some Texas Republicans posit that faced with the threat of eight new Republicans tilting the balance of the Senate, Washington would let the Texas offshoots leave without a fight. What would happen if the feds let states go peacefully? First of all, "it ...

Eight more Texas US senators? Texas has a right to them. The following paper appeared in the Texas Law Review. This paper is posted on SSRN. This is the article's abstract as posted on SSRN. Kesavan & Paulsen, "Let's Mess with Texas" appearing in Texas Law Review, Vol. 82 (2004), pp. 1587-1620. ABSTRACT: Texas Republicans have been thinking way too small. The redistricting battles of 2003-2004 are nothing compared to the powerful political potential posed by Texas's prerogative, confererred by an Act of Congress, to divide itself into five states. A relatively obscure provision of the 1845 Joint Resolution for Annexing Texas to the United States provides that [n]ew States, of convenient size, not exceeding four in number, in addition to said State of Texas, and having sufficient population, may hereafter by the consent of said State, be formed out of the territory thereof, which shall be entitled to admission under the provisions of the federal constitution. This essay argues, building on our earlier wor ...
An update to silly season, in the wake of President Obam's relection, Texas Republicans want succession on the table, and up for possible vote. Good, please go. Seriously, go. Don't look back, just go. Besides dooming the Republicans in the other 49 states to a national electoral defeat every four years without Texas's electoral votes, Democrats would also control the house without the majority Texas Republican reps and the senate without those two extra senate seats. Like leaving Vietnam, you want out, our military, bases and equipment come with us. Oh yeah, and your other nearest neighbor is Mexico, good luck with that. In my wildest dreams, this will never happen, and the shrinking white majority in Texas will one day be beaten by the hispanic Democrats, I know all this, but a fella can dream. (Love ya Trudy! We'd smuggle you back over the border)
George P. Bush has filed the paperwork necessary for a bid for office in Texas, the latest sign the rising GOP star will run for something next year. son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is a Texas-based GOP consultant and heads the Hispanic Republicans of Texas. He's been viewed as a rising star in Texas Republican politics, and on top of his family connections is known as a compelling speaker and savvy campaign strategist. It's unclear what office he's considering. In September he said he had his eye on a number of statewide offices. Texas is now a majority-minority state, and Texas Republicans have made efforts to find Hispanic candidates to run statewide — newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is the most recent example.

Dear Democrats, Yesterday we wrote to congratulate you, and to tell you that we’re at the precipice of a new era for Texas. A Blue Era for Texas. Well, we’re not the only ones who see this theme and this potential. Today we write to share with you two particularly exciting media hits from yesterday. The first is a video of NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. Chuck Todd, the White House correspondent, briefly speaks about what we saw around voting demographics on Tuesday night, and then he calls out three states that will be in play in 2016. Texas is one of those states he lists. You can watch that video by clicking here. And below is a great article from the Texas Observer. This article documents the problems Texas Republicans have, and will increasingly have, with the growing Latino vote in our state. Included in this article is the priceless and true quote from Republican state Chair Steve Munisteri, “The Republican Party is living on borrowed time. If every Latino were to vote today in Texas, ...
Our SDEC Chair man wrote a good LTE, so I'm reposting it here: Tuesday, if you've not yet voted, go vote! If you're sick, you can drive up to your polling location and ask them to bring a voting machine out to your car- you don't even have to go in. Please don't let anything stop you from voting for our great slate of Democrats. It isn't even that they're such a terrific bunch of REASONABLE people, it is also that the Texas Republicans have, for the most part, fielded a slate of far right extremists who will not serve our state well. I believe that most Texans tend to be more in the middle, and candidates like like the US and State Senate on the GOP side are so extremist, they make the Taliban look "normal." Now, for the letter from JC: Voters in Senate District 25 have a choice on Tuesday between a career teacher who believes that all our children deserve a high quality public school education and a Tea Party darling who wants to repeal Obamacare but doesn't seem to realize that it is federal legislation ...
I got that hat in New Braunfels,Texas Republicans office. It's different than any other hat I've seen.
Today early voting starts in Texas. Going to make my way there in the next few days to cast my vote. We got a call last night from the Texas Republicans informing us that early voting was starting, and also reminding us that it was important to vote in the other races. They had a catchy little motto about voting a straight Republican ticket saying that we should vote for even the Republicans on the ticket whose names were not familar to us because if we don't vote for the Republican we don't know, we will get the Democrat that we do know. At this point, I don't think I would vote for a Democrat as dogcatcher. I want to get things moved back in the other direction and the President alone cannot do that. There has to be moveable representation under the head. Get out and vote.

This is not going to lower the deficit... "State Budget Cuts Force West Texas Planned Parenthood Clinic To Close" "When Texas Republicans succeeded in defunding Planned Parenthood by cutting the women’s health group and other “affiliates of abortion providers” out of the Women’s Health Program, doctors and advocates warned that this would hurt health care for low-income women in the state. Without Planned Parenthood clinics in the Medicaid-funded health program, providers will have to take up to five times the number of patients they currently serve. More than 100,000 women will lose their access to preventive health care. So far, at least 50 health clinics unaffiliated with Planned Parenthood have been forced to close. Now, Carla Hovela of Planned Parenthood of West Texas said the budget cuts are forcing another Planned Parenthood clinic to close in Abilene, Texas." ~CP

Thanks to Texas Republicans cutting mental health funds I have not been able to see a doctor for my mental health in over 4 months of trying. As of today I am out of my lamictal medication and I will try to see a doctor at the crisis center tomorrow which wastes valuable resources for the critical mental health needs of others when I only need prescriptions not emergency help, this does not guaranty I will get medication at all. If I can't get this medication I will fall back into suicidal thoughts again after enjoying freedom from this for over a year and I risk dangerous withdrawal symptoms as well.

Pass the Texas law that would have required voters to show government-issued photo identification before casting their ballots in November! Mr. Perry and other Texas Republicans had argued that voter identification laws were constitutional methods of preventing voter fraud, and they believed the courts could not legally consider factors like poverty when determining whether a law complies with the Voting Rights Act. Mr. Perry criticized the judges and the Obama administration. “Chalk up another victory for fraud,” he said in a statement. “Today, federal judges subverted the will of the people of Texas and undermined our effort to ensure fair and accurate elections.”

Rick Perry and the Republican-controlled legislature are using Karl Rove-style tactics to steal Democratic seats by manipulating the redistricting process. In 2003, Texas Republicans drew one of the most infamous gerrymandered legislative maps in history. Led by Governor Rick Perry and now-disgraced House Majority Leader Tom Delay, Republican legislators rammed through a new map that helped them dominate the statehouse and Congressional delegation for years. Now they're at it again. New maps approved by Governor Perry would further tilt the playing field and make it more difficult for Democratic voters to have fair representation. Enough! Stand with the DGA against Tea Party Republicans' plans to steal elections through unfair redistricting.
