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.

We need more Republicans who have a Libertarian perspective and Deboarh Medina fills that bill. If I lived in Texas, I’d vote for her. The other two choices are a RINO Senator and a Big Government Conservative Governor.
If Medina were to win this, it could be the beginning of a rise of Constitutionalists in friendly territory.
i live in texas and will vote for perry .
Rick Perry has been Governor for 10 years now....why does he need to serve another term?
why not .. 3 billion rainey day fund , conservative... Shelley jackson lee is a better use of my time..
I’m voting for Medina. I don’t trust Perry because of that land grab issue he pushed for his super highway.
wasted vote but ok ..
Freepmail me or ping me from the original thread to get on/off the 2010 Texas Governor's Race ping list.
Because he is the least bad candidate.
We don’t need an open borders candidate like Medina .
Not even if she claims a sudden “come to Jesus”.
Then kay might win!!!!!!
This guy makes a lot of sense and bears repeating at the end:
“The benefits of a Medina victory would go beyond those issues I’ve mentioned.The psychological benefits of encouraging frustrated small government conservatives would have a ripple effect across the country.
This is why I advocate the nationalization of Debra Medina’s candidacy. Scott Brown received massive amounts of money from out of state. The two establishment candidates in Texas have a combined total of about 24 million dollars in their war chest. Medina depends on small contributions from grassroots support and can’t compete with big corporate donors. She can if grassroots efforts are expanded nationally.
Debra Medina has made amazing gains with limited funding and no statewide recognition prior to the first debate. The second debate Jan 29th will very likely give her another big bump in the polls and put her in a legitimate three way race. She is no longer an impossible long shot.
Most of the press around Texas has praised her debate performance and acknowledged her elevated status. This is a window of opportunity that rarely presents itself and we as patriots must spread the word.”
Medina might be ok if we knew more about her and if she had experience. Sure, she sounds good, but she’s and unknown and unproven. I only know of her from FR. I haven’t seen a single tv commercial with her so the general public doesn’t even know she’s running. Heck, even that Paki shampoo salesman wanting to give thousands of jobs to illegals has had on commercials (non-speaking commercials as Texan might no welcome his accent). Perhaps she’d be a front runner the next time if she were to hold an elected office between now and then.
I know enough of Perry's and KBH's records to vote for Medina in the primary.
The argument to end all arguments. I'm voting Perry, KBH's only viable opposition. Anything to keep her outta the capitol. After that, get her outta the senate.
Medina is a Ron Paulite, not a normal libertarian-conservative.
Medina also has no chance at getting as much as 25% in the primary, so every vote that conservatives cast for Medina makes it likelier that Perry will get below 50% and the RINO Hutchison gets a second bite at the apple in a run-off.
The second debate Jan 29th will very likely give her another big bump in the polls and put her in a legitimate three way race. She is no longer an impossible long shot.
If she got all the undecideds she would still have only 24% or so thus still in 3rd place. Medina will probably do well in the debate and win the online polls because of the Paul factor but she’ll come in 3rd in the primary. Maybe with some seasoning and exposure she’ll improve her standing across the state.
Have you heard Medina discuss the border issue?
I have never heard her advocate “open borders,” but plans to add military to stop illegals coming through and she is adament about no amnesty. She also is against Texan’s tax dollars paying for medical services to illegals and plans to do something about the entire border problem.
In fact I hope you listen to her in the debate on Jan. 29th. For those who can’t hear it we can post the transcript here so others can be properly informed.
I’m just saying, there is no better time to get true grassroots candidates elected to replace career politicans so let’s scrutinize our choices.
Deport, how can you possibly know what percentage Medina would get? Look how fast Independents AND Democrats switched to Scott Brown. Voters want long-serving politicans OUT and that certainly describes Perry.
I think most Republicans share the new mentality across the nation that I experienced in D.C. and that was a unified, “Vote ‘em all out.”
Our loyalty is to our country, the good ol’ U.S.A. and not politcial parties.
No worries, we will be there in force when the RNC votes on a new Chairman, and they will look at us with the same disdain the Democrats had for the people who showed up for the Town Halls.
The position of RNC is too important to be left to country clubbers to fill.
