    Did you know that several Republican leaders in Texas have been issuing apologies for slavery and bigotry on behalf of our party? They are and it includes our immediate former Republican Party of Texas Chairman Susan Weddington.Democrat liberals do this sort of thing all the time when pandering and race hustling to Jesse Jackson and his following for votes, but to see this sort of stuff from Republican leaders seems unbelievable.Since this story is so far fetched many have experienced disbelief in it at first. But rest assured, it happened and here is the evidence that could be assembled from...

    Texas Conservative Review ^ | 4/21 | Gary Polland
    TCR has been wondering if whether this year principled conservatives will get to run the Texas Republican Party or will the establishment/big business types run it through willing surrogates? First, TCR urges all delegates to the state convention in San Antonio to actually show up and have an open mind about party leadership. Just because someone holds office, doesn't mean they should continue to. Look at what he or she has actually accomplished - like the financial state of the party, what the party is doing to advance conservative principles, what vision do the candidates have about the future and...

    700 Club ^ | 8/08/03 | interview – Conservatives say the Supreme Court's sodomy ruling is just one more example of judicial activism in the courts, that the Court has gotten too powerful and is creating new laws instead of ruling on the existing ones. David Barton is an expert on U.S. history, and he says the High Court is exercising powers that the Founding Fathers never intended. CBN’s Pat Robertson recently spoke with David Barton on "The 700 Club." PAT ROBERTSON: The Supreme Court, ladies and gentlemen. The eyes have been focused on the Supreme Court. Recent rulings by the court have shown how easily...

    Committee passes redistricting bill BY NATALIE GOTT Associated Press Writer AUSTIN - A Senate committee on Wednesday adopted a map of new congressional districts that likely would give the Texas GOP an advantage over the state's Democrats in Washington, but the plan seemed doomed this special legislative session. The Senate Jurisprudence Committee approved the measure 4-3 on a party line vote. Sen. Todd Staples of Palestine, who chairs the Senate Republican Caucus, sponsored the map, which he unveiled Wednesday. He said it was fair and balanced. "Clearly I think the map that I laid before you today respects rural, east,...

    NASA should scrap the space shuttle and spend its money on developing a new transit system, a 19-year veteran of Congress and former shuttle program advocate said Thursday. "I am not going to vote for any funding for the existing orbiter to go back to space," Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, said at a half-day hearing on the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's proposed Orbital Space Plane, a crew transport craft. "It's my opinion that we can't make the existing orbiter as safe as it need to be," said Barton. "I'm not going to just sit by and put Americans at...
