Here in Texas we have much more at stake in the November elections than just helping to decide the next President of these United States. The folks who we elect to represent us will have a larger effect on our day to day lives than whoever we send to the White House. As a matter of fact, we have the opportunity to put folks on Capitol Hill who could help put the brakes on the liberal agendas of whoever may become president. At stake is one U.S. Senatorial seat, and 32 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. Wouldn't it be nice if we Texans could oust our most despicable representative, Sheila Jackson Lee? Not likely, but nice. What we can do is keep our best on the hill, and maybe even gain a seat or two. All we have to do is show up and vote.
At the state level, all 150 State Representative seats are on the ballot. If Republicans don't show up, we loose. Period. We have 11 State Senator seats, The Chief Justice of the Texas Supreme Court and several other judges also on the ballot.
As you can see, there is a lot at stake in November.
Do you want to make advances in our right to keep and bear arms? Or would you prefer legislation that would limit handgun purchases in the State of Texas to one per month? It was the Republicans who spearheaded the Castle Doctrine Laws, and it will be Republicans who fight to get rid of prohibited places for CHL holders. It was Republicans who created our budget surplus, and it is Republicans who promote the economy building free market in Texas. Republicans have stopped the implementation of a state income tax, and is the Republicans who will continue to keep the states fingers out of our paychecks.
Do not stay home this November, too much is at stake.
