Why Everyone Should Watch The Texas GOP Governor Debate NOW

People outside of Texas might wonder they should watch a Texas Gubernatorial Republican Primary Debate.

I highly recommend it because I think this race is illustrative of a number of phenomenon that are at work right now on the “right” side of the aisle. And boy do I use THAT term loosely. Please understand that loose term includes those committed to restoring the Republic as originally intended by the Founders (and mean it, understand it), people who call themselves “conservative”, Republicans, RINOs, etc., etc.

In other words, everyone who says they are on the side of limited government and individual liberty whether they mean it or not.

This Texas GOP Gubernatorial Primary has a nice little collection of examples for us all, as it includes current Texas Governor Rick Perry, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, and activist Debra Medina.

Who the Republicans of Texas ultimately choose as their candidate will tell the rest of us around the country just how serious Texas Republicans are about the Constitution, liberty, and if the Texas reputation of “Don’t Mess With Texas” and “Come and Get It” really have meaning, or not.

I watched much of the first debate. I knew I was no fan (that’s putting it mildly) of either Perry or Hutchinson, but didn’t have any real first-hand exposure to Medina.

What I saw was two RINOs pointing fingers at one another, playing politics, dodging tough questions, and talking about…how government can solve things. And I also saw someone who knows the Constitution, keeps her eye on the ball, isn’t afraid to answer a question, and rightfully views her fellow debate participants as a couple of politicians who are good at twisting words.

What WILL the people of Texas decide? Will they recognize their governor is a guy who is about as slick as a used car salesman who has figured out to ride whales like the Tenth Amendment issue while on the other hand is the same guy who tried to force Gardasil vaccine on teenage girls. Will the people of tax look any deeper into Governor Perry?

Will the people of Texas recognize Kay Bailey Hutchinson as an establishment politician who likes to straddle such issues as life? Hutchinson was actually laughed at repeatedly at the last debate as she tap danced better than Sammy Davis, Jr. through a series of pin-point questions on whether or not she supported a repeal of Roe v. Wade.f

Will the people of Texas recognition a candidate who is committed to adhere to the Constitution?

November 17, 2009

The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce its endorsement of R.J. Harris in his campaign to represent the 4th District of Oklahoma in the House of Representatives.

The RLC Board of Directors selected Mr. Harris as one of its first endorsed candidates for the 2010 primary season because of his issue stances in support of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We believe Mr. Harris will be a strong defender of liberty as a member of Congress and an outstanding representative for the people of Oklahoma.

“As a soldier Mr. Harris has pledged his life to support and defend the Constitution. He has the character and integrity to be the next Congressman from Oklahoma because he has done something that most congressmen have not done, and that is he has actually reads and understands the Constitution,” said RLC National Committee member Dan Sheill.

Dave Nalle, of Texas, the national chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, mentioned that “what separates R.J. Harris from most conservatives today is that he fully understands that respect for the 10th Amendment and federalism requires that Congress and the President cannot legislate social policy that is properly reserved to the states.”

The Republican Liberty Caucus wishes Mr. Harris good luck in his campaign, and will do everything in its power to promote him and Republican candidates like him to bring the Republican Party back to its core principles of individual liberty, limited government, and free enterprise.
