Skip to comments.Why Debra Medina's Candidacy For Texas Governor Should Be Nationalized
Posted on 01/24/2010 3:20:43 PM PST by Clintonfatigued
So far there are no signs that true reform is taking place in the GOP. The people in control of the party during the worst two consecutive election cycle defeats in GOP history are still in control of the leadership nationally. This is why a Debra Medina victory is a tremendous opportunity to return to the original constitutionally limited government given us by the founders. The obvious question is why is it that important for Medina to win? The answer is because Texas is that important. Texas is the flagship state of the Republican Party. The Texas GOP is the biggest in the Nation.

Eminent Domain has been settled law for thousands of years. You are more "old fashioned" than that?
I think Kelo is unconstitutional though.
Im the enternal optomist for sure, but I also believe our thoughts and words have power and so I will not shrink from endorsing/voting my choice.
You should always vote your choice. That is what I freedom is about. Take care and as I said we’ll know the outcome for sure in 37 days.
Texas has a runoff, doesn’t it?
Texas has a runoff, doesnt it?
In the primary, yes.
AMEN! We already have someone in the White House who is a great speech giver but unexperienced. We sure don’t need one in Texas. And IMO if she wins, Bill White is the next Governor of Texas and I’m moving out!
I just read an article that will appear in the Feb. Texas Monthly and did not realize that Perry is a former Democrat congressman who turned Republican when the state started going that way. I’ll try to find it again and post the URL as I’m not sure how to search before posting articles.
Okay, I still had it open so here it is, entitled, Right Place, Right Time and it calls Perry a former Democrat state legislature.
Not the first to do this. There is another one that comes to mind.
Hmmmmm ......... who could it be ...........?
However... I still smell shenanigans... ;^)
Perry wasn’t just a democrat he worked for Al Gore. And you’re allusion to Reagan just shows you know nothing about the man (either one). Perry is just an opportunistic jerk that will say whatever he thinks the public wants to hear. RR ran on his beliefs and stuck to them.
Medina doesn’t have any experience. No experience being a bought and paid for politician like “Hair” Perry and KBH.
Did he or did he not switch parties? That IS the discussion.
Medina doesnt have any experience.
That is what I thought.
No experience being a bought and paid for politician
Neither does my dog. Maybe he should run.
Don’t forget his phony campaign promise to secure the border. Once elected he told the people who voted him in, “Are you kidding? Securing the border will never happen.”
AND don’t forget the Gardisil abomination, where he wanted to make it mandatory for all our girls to get this shot. Turns out he was in bed with big pharm.
Perry is a former-Democrat RINO who will say anything to stay in power.

I know you all are on the other thread on this topic but I’ll help you a little on Perry.
Perry was bred/born a democrat in Paint Creek Texas. His dad was an elected democrat. Perry got into politics after he failed as a farmer in Paint Creek and was a democrat. During his progression to changing to the GOP in 1989 he was the 1984 Mondale for President cordinator in Texas and in 1988 he was the same for Al Gore.
I’d vote for Perry too if I was in Texas!!!!
I like your tag line. New voters in Texas need to be aware of the 30 day registration prior to voting rule. This will be my grandson’s first chance to vote. I reminded him to be sure and get registered last week.
Here’s the count down as of today:
7 days until the last day to register to vote.
22 days until early voting begins.
36 days until the March 2 primary.
i support faulk.. over lee.. we need to replace lee very badly..
1. She's a nurse.
2. She speaks Spanish.
Hold on, I'm thinking.....
Bullshit, fight your own battles with your own money.
Texas is no more important than any other state!
