QUOTING… “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.” — Ronald Reagan
From Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, by Michael Quinn Sullivan, 09/05/13 –
It’s a sad truth that conservatives around the state and nation are being bullied. Will we cower in silence, or stand up and fight? At TFR, we’re going to fight.
Almost daily we come across evidence of the three-letter agencies – from the I.R.S. to the E.P.A. to the T.E.C. – being used by powerful office-holders as weapons to silence conservatives and attack entrepreneurs. It’s time to put a stop to it. Rather than cower at the sucker-punches thrown by political bullies, we’re going to be punching back. Hard.
In a wide-ranging interview at The Daily Caller’s newsroom in Washington, Tim Phillips, the conservative grassroots organization’s president, admitted that the pro-free market group will consider picking favorites in certain primary contests in 2014 and 2016.
From RedState.com, By: Daniel Horowitz (Diary), December 4th, 2012 – Yesterday, we noted that not only did House leadership select moderates to fill vacant spots on the top congressional committees, they made the unprecedented decision to banish conservatives already sitting on some important committees. All of the decisions related to committee assignments are decided by a Steering Committee. At present, the Steering Committee is comprised of 31 members, most of who are either members of leadership or pushed onto the committee by leadership. These are the men and women behind the decision to throw conservatives under the bus.

Most liberals are not nuts nor are most conservatives. But there are far too many nutty ones in each group. It is the nutty ones in one group that grasp onto some action by the nutty ones in the other group and try to turn it into a cause for condemning everyone in the opposite group. A legitimate difference in personal political opinion does not automatically establish a person as being nutty. It is the unbridled animosity and hateful vindictive language which is injected into the political scene and then continually nurtured that identifies the nutty contingent from the remainder.

How many humiliating defeats is it going to take until Conservative Republicans learn that core conservative principles cannot be compromised – that the mushy middle only slows our slide into socialism ?
The Dole campaign for President was a joke. Then the mushy moderate Republican elites placed all their political eggs in the McCain basket. How’d that work out for ya – Hmmm?
And now this same bunch of ‘inside the beltway Republican moderates’ are stacking the deck in Romney’s favor! With friends like that, who needs enemies? The line between the Republican moderates and the socialist media is almost indistinguishable! Unless they are stopped, the outcome will be the same – defeat for conservatism AGAIN.
God bless the courageous young conservative leaders that are stepping forward to lead America into the future. With bright young leaders like Marco Rubio and others, I believe America’s greatest days are ahead!
I urge you to watch this video – a true patriot in action.
The chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee wasted little time announcing his opposition to the House GOP leadership’s two-step plan to raise the debt ceiling.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who stood — visibly uncomfortable — next to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) during Monday’s announcement of the plan, released a statement saying he would vote “no” on the measure. Continue reading →

A political hack job against Phil King was written by Aledo ISD Board Trustee Bobby Rigues. He managed to get things pretty close to exactly opposite of how they are.
Published in Parker County’s “Community News” publication, Rigues presented greedy insider big-spending interests as “grassroots” under the cover of “education first”, while presenting true grassroots fiscal responsibility interests, led by Phil King, as obstructionism. Continue reading →
