In preparing for my interview today at 5:05 with Jon-David Wells AM 660 KSKY which we will be discussing the release of the Women On The Wall.org ”No Pledge To Joe Straus” video I just keep coming back to the importance of action by Conservatives.
Our Call to Action – Show Up, Conservatives, and get in the game. It is time to………….
Aggregate and Disseminate the “No Pledge To Joe Straus” Video
They say the people who run the government are the ones who show up, well it is time for Conservatives to show up!!
Today Michael Quinn Sullivan reported that Ross Ramsey with the Texas Tribune which was ” founded recently by liberal Texas donor John Thornton, and has received money from national leftist George Soros has stooped to berating voters directly.
He apparently thinks that we are uninformed about the back door deals that go on in the Capital so we need to just “Shut Up and eat our Vegetables. Really Ross Ramsey? Well I agree with my friend Larry who said on my FaceBook when I shared this story.
“This child is developing oppositional defiant disorder.”
My thought is moderate Republicans need to “Eat their Vegetables” and look at reality outside the State Capital. Based on the success of the leadership you voted for as the Speaker of the House you were wrong and we were right, and we are NOT GOING AWAY!
I am thinking the Capital insiders are not aware that Grassroots and Tea Party folks are very informed on the issues and we know exactly what we want. Smaller Government and Conservative “Leaders” as Evan Smith stated who will get us there. What we have on our side is the Power of Knowledge and the Power of the Vote. They work for us and we can fire them in the primaries.
The left are the masters of deception and now the Moderate Republicans are using the lefts play-book to hold onto power. The Republican establishment on the state level and the national level are just as fearful of us as the Democrats so they are doing everything they can to marginalize and take us out.
After the Speaker Showdown in Austin Straus said the Tea Party was going away. He has told countless legislators not to worry about us. In fact in reference to all Tea Party Texans right after the Speaker Debate to quote Joe Straus, “We won–We beat’um — and ” We don’t need’um!”
“That is how nations are lost……
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
