When Career Politicians Talk but they don’t Walk

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. ~Sir Winston Churchill

Today several Tea Party activists visited the Governor and after that visit the reports are that they were not very encouraged.

“There were a lot of suits in there, with a lot of spin”

It is interesting to note that while many of us have questioned the Speaker of the Texas House Joe Straus from the beginning of this legislative session and have been active in holding him accountable many have also urged the Governor of Texas to step in.

Governor Perry "Stand With Us" - Maria Martinez IRCOT

Well Perry it is time to “Stand With Us”. We have asked you before and it  fell on deaf ears but now we are beginning to question just what your motives are. As I told a friend who wondered where is Perry on these key issues like Sanctuary City’s after I wrote How Many More Texans and Hispanic lives will be ruined by Republicans? Money talks and in Texas, Republican Legislators are on the take.

Jose’ question “What is WITH Perry?

Jose, that is a good question. I have a feeling he is walking a tight rope. It is the old guard money that he needs and can’t tick off the big Republicans donors like Bob Perry any more than Straus can. That is why Sanctuary Cities can’t pass. Cheap Labor!! Never mind that people are being killed and our borders mean nothing.
