Government

Put simply: We are for limited government that works. At TexasGOPVote, we will work as a watchdog to help our state lawmakers and our congressional delegation pull in the reins on unnecessary spending and government bureaucracy. You better believe we’ll expose politicians who seek to act outside the bounds set by the Forefathers in the Constitutions of Texas and the United States.
It was Fall of 1835. Mexican President Santa Anna had dissolved the Constitution and made himself dictator. Tensions began to flare between his oppressive government and the liberty minded desires of Texians and Tejanos. To...
This is black history month. Earlier this week, at my church anniversary celebration, I talked about the most achieved and the wisest black leader in America in the last 100 years. I had the good fortune to have worked for...
Imagine for a minute that a fierce anti-abortion person would visit a Planned Parenthood clinic and participate in an abortion to see what that experience is like. Would never happen, right? But fierce anti-gun advocate...
The photo shown here is circulating widely on the internet. President Obama wants you to believe he is "down with guns" so he hustled out to Camp David for a quick photo shoot (please pardon the scary gun word). Those of us...

Groundhog Day is a quasi-official national holiday celebrated on February 2nd each year. It is also the name of a classic 1993 movie featuring Bill Murray as Phil, who must live the same day over and over until he learns a...
About two weeks ago I received an email from Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) where he said some really foolish things about gun control, so I posted a reply to his message on TexasGOPVote.com. Yesterday I received another message...
It is impossible to make any logical sense of the recent events at Sandy Hook. The bitter loss of those children cut into our national psyche, and as a consequence, we now see proposals to defend our children in school from...
Rand Paul has shown himself over the past year to be a serious politician who understands the political landscape and is now attempting to do what his dad could never do and other libertarians failed to do consistently:...
Beware of any requirement designed to determine your mental health if you have no previous record of mental health problems. Determining one’s mental health to purchase or own a firearm would depend upon your answers to a...
Today, I voted in favor of legislation that requires President Obama to produce a plan for a balanced budget. The Require a PLAN Act (H.R. 444) directs the President to provide a balanced budget plan to Congress by April 1,...
I introduced a bill Tuesday (H.R. 504), along with my colleagues Representatives Steve Chabot (OH-01), Randy Hultgren (IL-14), David McKinley (WV-1), and Glen ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5), that will reduce the amount of money the...

Most of my conservative friends view America as lost; I have decided to become the Happy Warrior. One reason begins with one reality; our opponents can easily be mocked. The real secret behind this group is that they are...
With all of the talk about gun control coming from the left and particularly from Senator Dianne Feinstein, you would think they would also have some sense of outrage about Attorney General Eric Holder's refusal to cooperate...
