“A rare, ethical representative. Those that continue the tyrannical behavior in these constitutional states have to become fearful of US ANTS. History is on the side of the ants. I predict it won’t be long till the colony ‘wakes’.” – YouTube Comment

Below is the Best Speech in the 82nd Texas Legislative Session which occurred on the last day by  Truly Conservative House Representative David Simpson.

June 29, 2011 State Rep. David Simpson, (R) Longview, delivers his “personal privilege” speech after the Texas House of Representatives fails to pass his anti-TSA groping bill.

Call To Action: Texas House of Representatives

“Pledge” to Voters not Straus for Speakers Race in 2013

AustinTexas June 2011

After vowing to remain actively engaged in the legislative process and to “keep a keen eye” on the workings of the 82nd Texas Legislature,WomenOnTheWall.org is once again on the front lines standing side by side with Grassroots and Tea Party activists to call on Texas House of Representatives to “Pledge” support to the voters of Texas instead of to the current Speaker of the House Joe Straus.

“What we have witnessed during this legislative session is what was feared most about the election of incumbent Speaker Joe Straus,” said Rebecca Forest, Co-Founder of WomenOnTheWall.Org, “Grassroots, immigration, and Tea Party activists who were against Joe Straus during the Speaker Showdown warned of another liberal leaning session on important issues and unfortunately,  we  have been proven correct.”    In Texas the Speaker is the one who establishes the agenda because he appoints the committee chairs and the committee members. As Donna Garner grassroots activist writer states “It is the conservative legislators who have dared to rock the Straus boat and they are the ones whose legislation has largely been killed and the ones whose districts have been decimated on the redistricting maps, Garner continues “Under Straus’ leadership, this 82nd Legislative Session has not acted judiciously and promptly to pass our conservative agenda even though we were the ones who showed up in such large numbers on Nov. 2, 2010 to “take our country back.”

WomenOnTheWall.org has released a No Pledge to Straus Internet video as well as an outstanding .30 second No Pledge to Straus ad which will be aired beginning June 13th 2011 through the end of the Special Session.  Straus used the pledge card system to become the current Speaker of the House and then it appears he promised sizeable campaign contributions to legislators in exchange for their votes for him as Speaker.

“The Pledge Card system ended up giving Straus the ultimate power in the House, says Alice Linahan WomenOnTheWall.org board member and producer of the latest videos. Linahan continues, “With that power he has killed the Conservative agenda, and because of this those Representatives who bill themselves as “Conservatives” must not “Pledge” support for his reelection as Speaker in 2013. Grassroots and Tea Party supporters will have no other option than to run an opponent against them in the 2012 primaries.”

“Straus and his supporters’ arrogance in openly fulfilling their threats perpetrated on fellow Republicans is an obvious indication of a sense of immunity from the will of the people.  On the outside, it certainly has the smell of corruption and an abuse of power.  With a closer look, there’s no doubt in my mind the stink is real; and it is certainly disgusting, states John Alaniz Temple, Tx Businessman

The Call to Action for Texans….call your State Representative and ask them to not “Pledge” support for the current Speaker of the House in 2013.
