She Sho’ do talk like a Texan...sounds like she is 1st cousin in DNA to that Scott Brown kid. Must make the GOP feel about as uneasy as Obama on his health care that things are getting out of control. I like her....I hope Texas puts her name on the ballot. Perry and the Senator are too much infected with Beltway insanity and need to go.

She makes sense talking about taxes.

But will she uphold the Federal Immigration Laws or turn Texas into a sanctuary state?

All the southern border states - Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California - have so many foreign nationals here illegally (illegal aliens) that places exist in those states where police will not enter. Those are truly lawless zones and must be cleared out, the illegals deported, our citizens reassured and calmed, and the laws of the state and Federal Government once again enforced.

She has the ability to speak like Rubio, from the heart and not full of focus group tested words and phrases. Its a shame she didn’t start earlier but just like Brown, her message can spread like wildfire.

Rubio also proposed a FairTax plan for the state of Florida while he was in the legislature. With plans like these, the possibilities are mindboggling.

Property taxes mean you never own your own home or any other property, the state does. Stop paying your property taxes and see how quickly your property disappears.

Just because you were either too lazy to find out for yourself or just trying to plant doubt as a Perry or Kaye supporter;

Unfortunately, our failure to enforce our own laws has led to economic catastrophes for many segments of our society. Ignoring immigration law has resulted in invasion rather than immigration, and our officials have reacted not by addressing the core problems, but by adding more and more government. The majority of immigrants who are now here illegally have that status because the immigration process is no longer a process at all, but another example of runaway government red tape and bureaucracy. Individuals must be held accountable for their actions, and those who break our laws and violate our sovereignty cannot get a free pass, regardless of their circumstances. But coming to the greatest state of the greatest country in the world should still inspire hope, not fear. It should mean dealing with the world’s most efficient immigration system, not a more sinister version of the DMV.

I’m trying to watch the vid, but for some reason it is taking forever & it’s getting very irritating. It will play for a few seconds, then the screen turns white as the sound goes off to about 10 seconds more....AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGH!!!!!!!!

BTW, I have a DSL connection, so I thought DSL was SUPPOSED to be faster than dial-up & that this problem wouldn’t happen! :-(

Exactly. You don't own home, you rent it from the government at the whim of arbitrary market values.

Firstly, watch who you’re calling lazy. Secondly, I live in Washington State. We have our work cut out for us ousting Patty Murray and replacing her with a conservative Republican.

My only care is that ALL states have very conservative Republicans voted into public office. But especially in Texas, which as a border state I would hope stands as a bulwark againsst this invasion of illegal aliens violating of our sovereignty.

That said, I am looking closely at Debra’s words (and so should you!):

“...The majority of immigrants who are now here illegally have that status because the immigration process is no longer a process at all, but another example of runaway government red tape and bureaucracy...”

Bullshit.

1. They are not “immigrants”. The term ‘Illegal aliens’ appears in Federal Statutes with the definition of “a foreign national in this country illegally”. THEY ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS! Immigrants are legal resident aliens.

2. Does she blame the folks who break our laws? No. She faults the U.S., and takes aim at our immigration laws, which work just fine as long as enforced vigorously.

“...Individuals must be held accountable for their actions, and those who break our laws and violate our sovereignty cannot get a free pass, regardless of their circumstances...”

Good. I like what she said here, but somehow, sandwiched between two statements that contradict this one, I doubt it means anyone will be deported.

“...But coming to the greatest state of the greatest country in the world should still inspire hope, not fear. It should mean dealing with the world’s most efficient immigration system,..”

“But”, there’s the qualifier. And again, she blames the U.S. for its immigration system, which the majority of our citizen believe to be satisfactory and want to see enforced.

In essence she is claiming our immigration laws as a sovereign nation are to blame for this invasion of millions of illegal aliens, the majority of whom are from Mexico.

Do you realize how irrational her position is? It is identical to that of the progressives/socialists/Democrats.

She needs to run for City Council or Mayor somewhere and establish a track record then if she proves to be what she says she is, run for Governor next time. One politician noted only speech delivery skills is enough and we already have that in Washington. You may not like Perry but at least you know what kind of devil he is and what you are likely to get with him at the helm. Some of his proposals have met with great opposition and they are now off the table - he does show the ability to be persuaded by the electorate. Electing Medina as Governor would be equal to having a first year medical student performing a heart bypass operation or open heart surgery unassisted!

Go with your gut. If she would come out and say she would close the border between Texas and Mexico, deport all illegals and their families if they don’t want to be separated from them and fine the hell out of employers who hire illegals, then I’d vote for her. Otherwise, you go with the best of the alternatives for now - and that’s Perry IMO. There are a number of conservatives who have a battle royal on their hands this year fighting to keep their local Congressional seat - and they need all kinds of help. The state legislature is very, very close to going Democrat. Must not let that happen.

Yeah, I had the unmitigated gall to ask a question about her speaking fee and whether it would be used for candidates like McCain and Graham. I was called a whiner, an idiot and accused of hijacking a thread. Interestingly, the question was never answered. The Palin Amen Chorus doesn't like questions.

Medina says :

As governor, she said, she would “not militarize the border,” but would deploy units of the Air, Army and Texas National Guard to assist local law enforcement in securing the Mexican border against the threat from drug cartels.

For starters look up Debra Medina's column 'Latinos and the GOP'

'It’s a shame isn’t it, that Republicans continue to ignore Hispanics especially here in Texas?' Debra Medina

'Ignore them', Mrs Medina? Since when? What more do you want? Or shouldn't we ask?

Medina ad:

“Who is going to think more about Latino families? Rick Perry, Kay Bailey Hutchison or me, who has a Latino family?” (Medina’s cultural heritage is German and Bohemian.)

She told a colleague last month in an e-mail. “Being married, however, to someone with a Mexican American heritage, I certainly embrace the culture.” But before she explained that, she told my colleage, who had asked her whether she considers herself Latina: “I’d not consider myself anything other than a wife and mother, a nurse and a patriot. I believe we too often get into race when it’s immaterial.”

No, Thanks, Mrs Medina.

She is also running Spanish ads. Hello Mrs.Medina! If they cannot speak English then they have no business voting IMO. When they learn English then let them vote. Assimilate. Learn English. Appreciate all America gives you.

So I’m sure she is blowing a lot of hot air just like Obama did just to get elected. Running those ads and saying what she has, tells me the border issue is just a try to get votes for herself.

No, thanks, I’ll stick with ‘ol RINO Perry. Texas has remained in better shape than almost any if not all of the states in the union under Perry's watch. As someone said, 'he's the devil we know'.

The motly crew running for governor is laughable; a MUSLIM, a trecherous RINO woman* (Hutchison) and a woman with questionable loyalties

*Feds Have Built Only 32 Miles of 700 Mile Double-Border Fence Originally Mandated by Congress “One reason DHS has been able to do this is an amendment that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.-Texas) slipped into an omnibus appropriations bill that Congress passed on December 18, 2007. Hutchison’s amendment put a loophole in the fence law that allowed the secretary of Homeland Security not to build the fence Congress had mandated the year before.”

This woman is not taking seriously an invasion of illegal aliens threatening our nation’s very sovereignty.

Obviously she is not big on law and order in the State of Texas. Taking on Mexican drug cartels means little until we drastically take down the demand stateside for those drugs.
