When a serial armed robber was on the loose in Indiana, just the threat of being shot by a targeted victim was enough to bring his spree to an end. The robbery suspect accosted a woman and flashed a gun at her. Instead of cowering in fear, she pulled out her own concealed handgun, and he turned and ran away. Police caught the fleeing suspect and ended up linking him to a string of break-ins and robberies in the area. The suspect was arrested and charged in connection with possession of a stolen handgun, possession of stolen property and other related crimes. (Fox59, Kokomo, IN, 5/17/16)

Election Integrity is the most incredibly powerful issue because it brings together people from all walks of life that would normally never agree, let alone even consider eating lunch together. Texas is a bastion for the rule of law and a strong-hold for legal accountability. Fortunately for Texans, our election statutes originate in our state Constitution Article 6, Section 4:
“In all elections by the people, the vote shall be by ballot, and the Legislature shall
provide for the numbering of tickets and make such other regulations as may be
necessary to detect and punish fraud and preserve the purity of the ballot box…”

They can start by reelecting NO ONE and send a clear mandate that the ‘back room’ deals and business as usual is O-V-E-R.
has anyone seen the so-called local ” TEA Party” of late ?
You will never reform corrupt county judges, commissioners, mayors, state reps and senators – they are part-and-parcel of the system which is destroying the working man, blue collar, and entreprenural class.
