Governor Perry Moves towards the Tea Parties with his TX Budget Compact

Jim and I attended Governor Perry’s press conference today where he announced his new Texas Budget Compact. It was eye-opening, as each of its issues (and more) were brought to the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Board at the beginning of the last Texas Legislative session. Click on the graphic  below to read JoAnn Fleming’s (TPCAC Chairman) comments (2 pages)  on Governor Perry’s Compact.

IMPORTANT: Recap of Monday’s Harris Co. Repub. Party Quarterly Meeting

H/T:  Felicia Cravens of Houston Tea Party Society – Meeting Recap

Hot Off the Presses: Breitbart Article on HCRP Pay to Play!

With many important details I was unaware of that will certain affect how we go forward from here.

From Felicia’s Blog Post (Audit Resolution/Funding Convention/Polland Rebuke):

AUDIT Resolution Randy Kubosh offered the resolution to ask for a monthly financial accounting, which was ruled out-of-order, since it would involve a bylaws change. Changes to the bylaws require some notice ahead of the meeting, and thus this resolution truly was out-of-order. Bylaws changes are proposed through the Rules Committee, which operates with a natural (and understandable) reluctance to propose a lot of changes to the bylaws. That said, a member who wanted to increase reporting, or make changes to the accountability requirements would have to navigate Rules committee meetings, hope that the committee approved the changes, wait for the Rules committee to notify the membership of a proposed change with proper notice, and then wait for the meeting at which there was enough of a quorum in order to vote on a change to the bylaws. It’s a little maddening, sure. A lot depends on the members of the Rules committee, and whether they judge the change to be acceptable. But making bylaws difficult to amend is purposeful – it ensures deliberation before changing rules or procedures that are already in place

  • so members have proper notice of structural changes to their organization
  • so that everyone knows ahead of time what is being proposed
  • so membership has time to digest the effect of the proposed change

Thank You, Rep. Poe for Your Vote AGAINST Government Overreach

Here is Congressman Poe’s explanation of his courageous vote against repealing the IPAB bill today:

 Obamacare is unconstitutional and must be repealed in its entirety. That is why I voted for the full repeal of the President’s nationalized healthcare bill, including the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). I have also introduced legislation to defund the individual mandate provision of Obamacare. Although I fully support the repeal of IPAB and have cosponsored legislation to repeal it (H.R. 452), I cannot support final passage of H.R. 5 because the bill includes provisions that I believe violate states’ rights and the 10th Amendment. As a strict constitutionalist and a fierce defender of states’ rights, I cannot accept replacing one unconstitutional law with another.

Read Rep. Poe’s entire statement here.

He wasn’t against repealing IPAB, of course–he’s already voted to rescind ObamaCare in its entirety. With KWTP’s encouragement (click on “more” below to see our email to him), Rep. Poe voted against the amendment our RINO Republican Leadership added to address Tort Reform. This legislation, though it sounds good is a gross encroachment on the constitutional powers that rightfully belong to the States.

Thank you, Congressman Poe!

Good Read:The Real War on Women from American Thinker

Real War on Women.

Our “Great Ruler” & The Rising Fever of Despotism

Must View or Read: Rep. Ted Poe’s list of grievances against our “Great Ruler.”

Next, remember this:

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Then Read: American Thinker article that says everything I believe about the importance of our upcoming election.

The Rising Fever of Despotism.

The time is now, and right now the Ballot Box is our battleground. American Patriots, and American Statesmen: Will we allow the Light of Liberty to be extinguished from our Land, or will we do our best, each and every one of us, to nourish the flame of Freedom once more?
