It appears that her proposals to eliminate property taxes, and gun registration do not make sense. Given that, what makes her so compellingly conservative?

Debra Medina will protect the rights of individual Texans to Life,,P. Liberty ,p.and Property through the abolition of the property tax,P. and by asserting the Sovereignty of the State of Texas as guaranteed under the 10th Amendment of the US Constitution.,p. She's proven her willingness to take a stand for what is right time and again, and now stands up to fight as David against two political Goliaths.

Debra Medina's commitment to principle and people over big government interests and hollow political rhetoric is the epitome of what it means to be a Texan.

Debra Medina is the only real choice for Texans in 2010 for Governor.

Eliminating Property Taxes: It CAN be done by Nelda Carrizales Skevington on Feb 01, 2010 WHARTON, TX, Monday, February 1, 2010 - In the race for governor, there is one candidate who is promoting ideas to secure private property and solve economic problems in Texas. Her name is Debra Medina and she is being met with friction from those who claim that the elimination of property taxes is not a realistic goal.

In true Medina style, she doesn’t give up. She stands by her idea stating, "If we can lose our property to government, then we don’t really own it.

So far as I know, she's not been elected to anything. Given that the governorship is a weak office—longevity has given Perry clout—can she accomplish anything?

What does not make sense about eliminating property taxes? What proposals does she have about gun registration according to you?

She has said that eliminating property taxes is what will make us really free. Keeping what we have worked hard for.

She is adamantly opposed to any kind of gun registration. She is the ONLY candidate who believes in the Constitution in its entirety. She wants to nullify socialist laws from the federal govt. She doesn’t like big government intruding in our lives. She does not support abortion at all, for any reason. These are just a few things she is all about. Oh, and the most important one of all: SHE IS NOT A GLOBALIST like Perry or KBH.

Now tell me, what is not conservative about that? You will not get these things from anyone else running for Gov. in Texas

Is she going to cry when you she loses, just like she did on stage at the RPT State Convention when she was booed as her Paulbot floor motions were voted down soundly by the delegates on the floor?

Gov. Perry and Sen. Hutchinson are no prizes, but Medina is not ready for prime time - she may never be, if her State convention performance is reflective of her poor temperament and weak resolve.

______________________________________________________________

There is NO Dem to “unelect”. This is Texas...all Republican. Whoever wins the GOP nomination will be elected in November. Besides, Rick “Empty Suit” Perry (aka “Governor Good-Hair”) and Kay-Kay are part of the entrenched political Establishment that people are tired of and want voted out.

"It would be great if Debra could be in the run-off with Rick Perry."

The more I learn about Medina, the more I like her. I think that ten years should be enough, if not too much, for any Governor. And I'm not very convinced of Kay's Conservatism.

No, but I know something about the limitations of the office. But if she won she would have to face the Democrat and a lot of rich Republicans might prefer someone like White.

I got this off a radio report but Rasmussen did some polling and they found that if the election were between Perry and Democrat Bill White (former Houston Mayor), Perry would win by nine points. If the election were between Hutchison and White, Hutchison wins by 13 points. If the election were between Medina and White, Medina wins by three points. Taken for what its worth. I’m not sure White is going to beat Farouk Sham-wow or whoever the guy is but I just can’t see Texans electing a governor named “Farouk”. Of course, I couldn’t picture Americans electing a president named “Barack” either.

After listening to the latest ads from Perry and Hutchison singularly attacking each other, Medina’s ads ought to start

“I’m sure you’ve listened to Gov. Perry and Sen. Hutchison attacking each other in ads...and they’re both right. You shouldn’t vote for either of them!...” Her message should be “I’m the conservative none-of-the-above candidate.”

You know what I like about Debra Medina?

1) She has experience in grass roots politics, and she
has never held an office. Just because someone has,
doesn’t make them a good candidate.

2} She is a leader

3) She is not a loose cannon

4) She works well with others

Private property is the foundation of freedom and capitalism.

If a person can’t own property then he or she is a slave to the state.

Property taxes are socialism/marxism/communism. Everyone is paying rent to the state so the state is the owner.

If Medina is for getting rid of property taxes then she is conservative and understands something about economics and freedom that most people have no clue of.

Agree. Medina is a Libertarian who is being pushed by Ron Paul supporters. She will only draw votes away from the two major GOP primary candidates. ....Like Obama, she has memorized some talking points and just repeats them every time she is interviewed on radio or elsewhere in the news. Her points on border control, gun control and property taxes, for example, are not doable; they just garner some votes.

No offense intended, but Medina’s Paulbot ideas would not happen. In Texas, the Governor is basically at the mercy of the State Legislature and only they can pass new laws. The Governor may possibly veto legislation at his/her peril, as the Legislators mostly represent “the people”.

I am voting for Medina in the March primary. I am getting pretty tired of the REP-tards who keep attacking her. They are the reason we have RINOs in DC, as it is more important to them for Republicans to win than a principled candidate. Screw the constitution, elect a republican! Perry is a blah, blah ex-Democrat talking hero.

Medina is a Ron Paul clone.

Nothing more and nothing less.

One of her big talking points was that she is going to end gun registration in Texas. Her little Bots here on FR were talking this up big time this past weekend. As usual they were wrong on the most simple issues.

“Protecting freedom requires that the people be well armed. Government cannot protect us from violence, we must defend ourselves. Texans must not compromise and must not surrender their rights to keep and bear arms. We must not only nullify federal laws that threaten that right but encourage citizens to be, as Madison encouraged, “trained to arms, as that is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”

Debra Medina

Will words like won’t come out of the mouth of Perry or KBH.

This is as stupid as the Democrats “utopian” government. Tell me again WHERE are we going to get our tax dollars to run this great state? If we eliminate property taxes, then sales taxes will go up, or a state income tax would have to replace the lost income.

If you believe you can remove property taxes without one of the two solutions above, then I have some ocean front property in Dumas, Texas that I want to sale you!

I agree 100% with your points.

However, the state of Texas does need a revenue stream to exist.
What is Medina offering as a replacement? Without addressing this issue, she is just blowing smoke. IMHO

Can she accomplish anything you ask? I’d say she has already accomplished A LOT.

She has come out of nowhere without money while being totally ignored by all media. She just won both debates and a poll a few days ago that had her winning more votes for Governor than Perry and Hutchinson combined.

We’ll see how far she goes after the runoff SHE has forced.
