“Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” ~ Ronald Reagan

If one of the duties of government is to safeguard the individual liberty of it’s citizens, then a number of our Texas State Representatives missed a golden opportunity with regard to (82) HJR 135, and in doing so, thumbed their noses at religious freedom and individual sovereignty.

The decision not to offer the amendment for a public vote is unfortunate in light of Obama’s recent dictatorial demands that religious affiliated hospitals or their insurance companies provide birth control or abortion pills. Indeed, a House Research Organization committee reported that the opposition to the amendment voiced concerns that the amendment would in fact, work as intended to protect a religiously affiliated hospital or institution from being required to perform procedures or provide services against their religiously held beliefs!

Examples might be [snip] religiously affiliated hospitals using the constitutional amendment to challenge requirements that they provide certain procedures.

We the people of Texas were not allowed to vote on this amendment because even though the committee voted unanimously to send the bill for a vote, it did not gain the 2/3 majority required to present it to the people. Sadly, some of our Representatives failed to protect religious freedom from the growing federal leviathan.

I received news of this dereliction of duty from Daniel Miller, a small businessman running in a local Republican primary in Texas who gave a brief synopsis of the bill and provided a handy list of the representatives who voted to deny your opportunity to vote on the amendment.

Handy indeed.

Here is Daniel’s take on the issue:

ObamaCare, Texas & Religious Liberty

In the waning hours of the 82nd session of the Texas Legislature, a bill quietly wound its way through the political machine in Austin that was, perhaps, one of the most important bills in the session.

Introduced by Representative Larry Phillips, HJR135 was a proposed constitutional amendment that seemed like a “no-brainer” and under a Texas House of Representatives with a supermajority of Republicans, should have passed with no problems.

The bill would have corrected what has been a glaring oversight in the Bill of Rights in our state constitution – the mandate of protection of religious liberty.

It would have amended the Article 1 Section 6 of the Texas Constitution that currently reads:

“All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences. No man shall be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship, or to maintain any ministry against his consent. No human authority ought, in any case whatever, to control or interfere with the rights of conscience in matters of religion, and no preference shall ever be given by law to any religious society or mode of worship.”

However, with continual attacks from the Federal Government on the religious liberties of Texans, HJR135 would have placed before the voters an opportunity to strengthen the protection by adding the following language to Section 6:

“The government may not, directly, indirectly, or incidentally, substantially burden an individual’s or a religious organization’s conduct that is based on a sincerely held religious belief, unless the government is: acting to further a compelling governmental interest, and using the least restrictive available means to do so. But it shall be the duty of the Legislature to pass such laws as may be necessary to protect equally every religious denomination in the peaceable enjoyment of its own mode of public worship.”

However, this proposed amendment did not appear on the ballot for Constitutional amendments this past November. With a Republican supermajority in the House, it failed to receive the support of 2/3rds of the members necessary to be placed on the ballot and, therefore, Texans did not get a chance to vote for it.

The session closed and this bill to protect your religious liberty died a quiet death.

However, this bill, its death and the responsibility of purported “conservatives” who voted to kill it are all roaring back to the surface.

The consequences of the death of this bill are now being felt at this very moment by Catholics, Baptists, Methodists and virtually all other religious denominations throughout Texas.

As Texans everywhere prepare for the disastrous implementation of ObamaCare, Christians and all people of faith are now at a decision point. “Do we obey God or government?”

A provision of ObamaCare mandates that all health-care plans in the United States cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including “Plan B” and others that cause abortions.

Religious hospitals, universities and charitable organizations would not be exempt from the regulation, nor would individual Christians, business owners, or insurers.

This ObamaCare provision forces those who are opposed to abortion to violate their conscience and participate in support of those actions.

However, had every Republican in the Texas House voted for HJR135 then the Legislature would have been forced to take action against this Federal attack on religious liberty and the Attorney General would have firm, unambiguous Constitutional grounds to fight for the rights of Christians in Texas.

We teach our children that actions have consequences. This is why. The actions of those who killed HJR135 will have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences.

Rather than standing for religious liberty their lack of courage opened the door for those who would seek to take it away. Rather than allowing the people of Texas to raise their voices in support of religious liberty, they robbed us of that right. Rather than giving us concrete protection of our “natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of our own consciences”, they force us to answer the question, “Do I obey God or government?”

Here is a list of State Representatives who voted against religious liberty in Texas:

Nays — Allen; Alonzo; Anchia; Anderson, C.; Burnam; Davis, Y.; Farias; Gallego; Geren; Giddings; Gonzales, V.; Gonzalez; Hernandez Luna; Hopson; Howard, D.; Johnson; King, T.; Lucio; Lyne; Mallory Caraway; Martinez; McClendon; Pickett; Quintanilla; Raymond; Reynolds; Ritter; Rodriguez; Sheffield; Smith, W.; Strama; Walle.

This is just one example of why local and State elections have large consequences.

Vote wisely, my friends.

Peter Morrison is back with an admonition to conservative Texans to get busy on the next election cycle. What with the federal courts intervening in our redistricting process, it makes this election ever more important to weed out the RINO’s from state and national politics as much as possible.

I think this applies to just about every state, even those that we may think are lost such as California. After all, every move towards conservatism is a step back from communism.

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

RINOs are the curse of the GOP, but, as hard as it is to believe after two years of Tea Party activism, many key RINOs are still in office and Joe Straus is still the Texas Speaker.  Despite the current redistricting turmoil, we need to organize to give the boot to as many RINOs in Austin and DC as possible.

Full report:

In 2012, Texas conservatives need to focus our energies on removing our own RINOs from office, and keeping them off the Republican ticket, this coming election.  It’s impossible to overstate how important this task is, on both the state and the national levels.  RINOs are poison to a conservative agenda.   There is little real difference between them and Democrats, and once elected they use their power to sabotage attempts to enact good conservative legislation.  We’ve seen this take place in Austin over and over.  No matter how loudly conservatives speak at the polls, and how good prospects for conservative legislation look, the RINOs in the party often manage to water good bills down, or block them altogether.

On top of this, activist federal judges have thrown the election into complete turmoil by throwing out the new legislative district maps recently drawn up in Austin, creating their own maps, and ordering the state to follow them.  This was in response to a lawsuit claiming that the maps drawn up in Austin discriminated against non-white voters, particularly Hispanics.  The court found in their favor and drew up new maps that were much more to their liking, because they include more districts where Hispanics are a majority. (You can compare the legislature’s map and the court’s map by doing an internet search for Texas District Viewer.) Given long established voting patterns, what this boils down to is that the court has created several more solidly Democratic districts, and eliminated some solidly Republican districts.

Attorney General Greg Abbott has filed an emergency appeal with the US Supreme Court to put the enactment of this ruling on hold, partly because Monday, November 28th was the first day a person who intends to run for office could file paperwork for a place on the ballot.  When it’s not even clear what districts will exist come Election Day, it’s pretty difficult to file the proper paperwork, so everything is in flux right now. Hopefully common sense and judicial restraint will prevail at the Supreme Court, and this ruling will be put on hold, but that is by no means certain.  Furthermore, even if this ruling does wind up being eventually overturned on appeal, the voting trends driven by huge population growth among Hispanics in Texas virtually assure that the state legislature and Congressional delegation will become increasingly less Republican and more Democratic.

Given all these factors – the dim prospects of a truly conservative presidential candidate, the state elections being up in the air, and the massive demographic changes taking place in Texas, it’s imperative that we work harder than ever in 2012 to elect genuine conservatives to the state house and to Congress.  The 2010 elections demonstrated what we can do when we’re truly motivated, and we need to recapture that same level of energy and motivation for the Republican primaries of 2012, which take place in early March.

If a RINO currently represents your district in Austin or DC, or if one is currently the favorite for the GOP nomination, start organizing now to defeat him or her in the primary.  Wherever there are genuine conservative challengers, it’s time to get behind them. If there aren’t currently any, it’s time to recruit someone.  If you don’t know of anyone else that might run, consider running yourself! It’s easy to think of reasons not to run or get involved, but as Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Don’t underestimate the impact you may have.  All incumbents either run unopposed or run scared.  RINOs in particular know they have betrayed their base and are scared of being called on it.  Several conservatives won in 2010 in the primary against well-funded incumbents, like former RINO state representatives Tommy Merritt and Delwin Jones.  By running against someone, even if you lose, you make them spend money, money that an unopposed incumbent can use to prop up his fellow RINOs in other districts.  If you lose and do better than expected, you might still accomplish your goal.

Case in point: RINO Burt Solomons just announced he won’t be seeking re-election.  Insiders I know report that this is because he was shown to be weak in the 2010 primary when he squeaked by with 53% of the vote against an opponent who spent a tiny amount of money, and big money conservative donors were looking to run a very strong race against him this year, so he chickened out.  There’s nothing more humiliating for an incumbent than to lose in a primary (and many of them are lazy from years in office with no serious campaigns), so often fear of losing makes them quit, and you win by default.  This happened in 2010 when RINO Brian McCall decided not to run after the Tea Party started organizing against him in 2009; now that district is represented by a real conservative, Rep. Van Taylor.  Slowly but surely conservatives are removing the turncoats who betrayed their constituents and elected Joe Straus as Speaker.

The Republican primary election date of March 6th is not very far away at all.  Right now, the candidate filing deadline is December 15th.  That may change, depending on what happens in the courts.

In the next few weeks we’ll have a definitive answer one way or another on the redistricting map, so if your district is currently in flux that should change soon.  So keep an eye on the news, and get ready to do battle this March with GOP sellouts!

If you have any specific questions about your district, such as whether your incumbent deserves a challenger, feel free to email in.  I can find out if there is an existing challenger and help connect you with some folks who can help you if you decide to run.

Did Harry Reid steal the Nevada election from Sharron Angle?

This may be one instance where George Soros’ Secretary of State Project worked as planned.

From Right Pundits:

[Secretary of State Ross] Miller is a life-long partisan Democrat operative in the state, the legacy son of former Democratic governor Bob Miller. He interned in the Clinton White House after obtaining a law degree from Loyola Marymount University. At age 30 he is also the youngest Secretary of State in Nevada’s history and apparently in way over his head.None of that would matter if he would only take an active role in voter fraud claims by Republicans, but instead Miller appears to be hiding behind his own bureaucracy.

Despite these widespread reports in the news about Nevada voting machines miraculously selecting Harry Reid’s name in a case of divine intervention, Miller’s response to the explosive Nevada election fraud allegations is that nobody bothered to file a formal complaint with the election’s division so he is not going to investigate it! He seems offended that a resident would instead take her case to the news media. Miller knows, of course, that pretty much nobody knows how to file election fraud complaints in a state. The voters are doing the natural thing by talking to the media.

The allegations of voter fraud, tampering and intimidation by Harry Reid’s campaign continue to pile up. So strange was Reid’s comeback after early voting showed a GOP advantage, The Christian Science Monitor labeled his victory a Houdini act.

This robot is absolutely *blsht* positive that the Senator did everything within his *hack*  power to keep his staffers and his son, Rory Reid, who is the *crrpt* Clarke County Commissioner where the vote stealing allegations took place, on the straight and *ahem* narrow, but the questions remain and accumulate, unanswered.

Strange: Election night, an as yet unexplained power outage occurred at one Las Vegas polling location. How convenient.

Side note: Also in question to me is the timing of Obama’s highly overrated, exorbitantly expensive, overseas trip in the wake of this election. Could it possibly be a bit of distraction from the possibility of voter fraud? The three-card-monte is always in play, it seems, with these people.

In another article, Elizabeth Crum, reporting for the National Review Online unearthed “disturbing” evidence of “collusion,” coercion and harassment of Harrah’s employees to conjure votes for embattled Senator Reid against the TEA Party candidate Sharron Angle. (H/T Am-Pow)

The accusations stem from a series of emails and spreadsheets that NRO obtained which offer damning evidence against Harry Reid’s staff, and possibly point to Reid’s personal  involvement in the scandal, with some in Harrah’s upper management being willing accomplices to the stealing of the election through voter/employee intimidation.

Reports Crum:

The stepped-up effort began Wednesday when a Reid staffer sent an email pleading for help to Harrah’s top lobbyist, Jan Jones. Soon after, Marybel Batjer, Harrah’s vice president of public policy and communications, distributed that plea via email to executives throughout the company.

Later in the article, the employee who forwarded the emails said:

“We were asked to talk to people individually to find out why they had not yet voted and to fill in these spreadsheets explaining why,” the employee said. “I did not feel comfortable doing that.”

“It put me in a very awkward position,” the employee added, saying the level of coordination between Harrah’s upper management, the culinary union, and the Reid campaign was “disgusting.”

A spokesman with the Federal Election Commission declined to comment on the case, but encourages anyone who feels that an election-law violation has occurred to file a complaint with the commission.

I wonder how many complaints have been filed already.

BigFurHat @ iOTW simply states: Harry Reid Broke The Law – Plain and Simple.

Here’s hoping someone with enough power to combat the Reid machine can get to the bottom of these serious anti-American accusations. One thing’s for sure, Eric Holder and the Federal justice system are going to turn a blind eye unless more evidence surfaces.

2010 Voter Fraud?

I missed donating to a candidate this past Friday and felt a bit of loss at not having made that weekly donation. So I was thankful that Instapundit gave me a method to relieve my stress. A Monday Money Bomb for Ruth McClung, the rocket scientist running in Arizona’s CD-7!

Hey, thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Reynolds. who also notes that , according to an article at Gateway Pundit, there may be some major voter fraud being attempted in Ruth’s district.

Ruth needs our help to defeat these leftist shenanigans.

Ruth McClung for Congress.

McClung Miracle Monday Money Bomb.

Another conservative lady comes to Arizona’s defense, and by doing so, America’s as well. Ruth McClung is a physicist who is concerned about the direction of our country, not a career politician, concerned with lining their pockets.

…I cannot stand on the sidelines when politicians in Washington (like my opponent) are grabbing control of our personal freedoms, wrecking our economy, recklessly spending our money, and destroying America’s greatness. We need to return to limited government, personal responsibility and integrity, a strong work ethic, and opportunity for all. The American dream is to be self reliant and work to achieve the life that you want, not live off the government.

As a nation, we face many complex challenges requiring innovative solutions. My technical knowledge and expertise in scientific problem solving will be valuable in solving these problems. I will take strong, decisive stands on border security and immigration, curbing out-of-control government debt, and promoting job creation through a free market economy. I am committed to limiting our government and defending our Constitution. Working as a physicist, I understand the importance of finding the right solution instead of causing new problems. Maybe it does take a rocket scientist.

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels, including the State Legislatures.

As noted in the previous post, 1000 Progressives in State Governments,

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the ‘fundamental transformation of America’

and as noted on the new Socia.list page, the members of the PSN Board of Directors include a bonafide “who’s-who” of Progressive/Socialist/Communist thought.

The Socia.list is depressingly long.

It shows just how much work we have to do to vote these people out and restore sanity to our Republic, but it can be done. Here’s how, as I see it:

1. Make note of who your representatives are along with their opponents.

2. Get that list to your TEA Party and Republican Party leaders for distribution.

3. Get out the vote!

4. Watch the Progressives lose office on Nov. 2.

5. Rest a bit.

6. Get back to work!

There are still some Progressives left, but we will have hopefully ousted enough to make the rest fear for their jobs. Go forth and strengthen the organizations you’ve joined and or started. Two years remain before we can truly turn the ship of state in the right direction, towards a restoration of our Founding Principles and a Constitutional Republic.

The new Socia.list page can be found at the top of the blog, just under the masthead and to the right of the Shoppe tab.

Ten Buck Fridays congratulates Dale Glading on his victory in this week’s TBF poll.

Here’s a little background information on Mr. Glading:

Dale Glading, 50, is the Founder and Executive Director of The Saints Prison Ministry. Headquartered in Moorestown, New Jersey, “The Saints” is the largest athletic prison ministry in the country with branch offices in Charlotte, NC, and Colorado Springs, CO…

A lifetime resident of South Jersey, Dale earned a Bachelor of Science degree with summa cum laude honors in Community Recreation from Temple University in 1981. He served as Recreation Director at the Wiley Christian Retirement Community for 10 years before entering full-time ministry with The Saints in 1994. During his years at Wiley, Dale developed a deep empathy for seniors and an understanding of the issues that concern them most…

Dale Glading on the issues: (excerpts)

It is time that the career politicians in Washington stopped trying to buy votes with taxpayers’ money and learned to live within their means instead. That is why I support Rep. Mike Pence’s proposed Balanced Budget Amendment that limits government spending to 20% of the GDP. I have also endorsed Rep. Todd Tiahrt’s bill to place a moratorium on all federal earmarks…

When I think about education, I consider two very important factors. The first is that our children are our most precious treasures as well as the greatest “natural resource” that America has. Second, competition breeds excellence in every area of life, including education.

That’s why I strongly support the idea of school choice. Failing schools shouldn’t be rewarded with a locked-in clientele, and children suffering in underperforming schools shouldn’t be relegated to receiving a substandard education simply because of where they live…

…how about lowering the corporate tax rate which is currently the second highest in the world? That would make American companies more competitive internationally and provide business owners with the capital they need to expand and hire more workers.

And while we’re at it, how about lowering the income tax rates for ALL Americans so we have more disposable income to better care for our families and better fuel the economy. The bottom line is that we all work hard for our money and as such, we should all be able to keep more of it…

UPDATE: One-Thousand Progressives, according to the PSN Letter to Obama Supporting Obamacare.

Our American society has never seen the level of corruption in evidence today. It’s as if some mind controlling parasites have infested and infiltrated every nook and cranny of our system. The deeper you go down the proverbial rabbit hole, the more tentacles you find. Across borders, oceans and economic systems it reaches to control your every movement and very existence. As an example, if you were to expound and expand on Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s new healthcare plan, they would wish to grant or deny even your right to exist, as evidenced by our federal government’s obsession with killing babies. Do any of you trust your government to the point of giving them control, Chairman Mao like, over the number of children you can have? Rest assured that a government that funds elective abortions of its citizens would jump at the chance to dictate your ability to procreate at all. That type of tyranny is one that would grant such rights by your political party affiliation or what amount of tribute you bring to their throne.

If you believe, as I do, that the Progressive/Socialist/Communist agenda is at its heart, an evil one, then you must also conclude that this movement must be stopped.

Enter the Progressive States Network. Ever heard of them?

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the “fundamental transformation of America.”

I’ve seen what that transformation looks like and I don’t like it.

How does it work?

Their plan is to introduce Progressive/Socialist legislation at the State and local levels in order to gain a foothold on those issues at the national level both in the media and in the federal legislature. In the process, they are grooming candidates for national office.

A primer:

Getting To Know Your Michigan Candidates

The Progressive States Network: What you need to know

Progressive States Network – Immigration

Progressive States Network: Distorting the Electoral Process?

The Progressive States Network: Undermining Liberty one State at a Time

The Progressive States Network: Exploiting the Crisis that Progressives Caused?

Progressive States Network: National Popular Vote

Popular Vote: By the Numbers

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels.

Examples of the upwards activism the PSN pursues are their letters to Obama from our State legislators:

Supporting Federal Health Care Reform

State Legislators for Progressive Immigration Policy

Create Jobs, Give States Fiscal Relief

All three of these would sound innocuous to the normal Americans, but in reality, they are letters demanding that the Federal government become more involved in the States’ activities and our personal lives at a time when we need less Federal involvement in anything State or personal, with the exception of sealing the border.

From the “Jobs” letter:

…Accordingly, the federal government must take proactive steps to create jobs and enact further fiscal relief for state and local governments. This includes extending FMAP increases for Medicaid, providing additional support for education, boosting funding for infrastructure projects and public transportation investments, supporting the long-term unemployed to sustain them until they reenter the workforce, and providing direct financial assistance to state and local governments to perform the vital services needed to maintain growth in local communities across the nation…

Signing on to the “Jobs” letter from Texas are:

  • Rep. Garnet Coleman (TX-147) Co-chairman of the PSN Board of Directors. Garnet was quoted recently on the Marxist emag Political Affairs. Sadly, Rep. Coleman is unopposed.
  • Sen. Rodney Ellis (TX-13) Opponent:  Michael Mauldin
  • Rep. Jessica Farrar (TX-148) Opponent: Fernando Herrera
  • Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (TX-51) Opponent: Marilyn Jackson

Nowhere in that letter is any mention of tax cuts or pro-business incentives for job creation, unless you count their concern for the loss of jobs in government and social services.

Government has grown too large as it is! The people who would fight for more government and social programs over actual private enterprise and real economic growth must be ousted from office at every level of government, Federal, State and local. Failure to do so, is to leave a bit of cancer in the infected host.

Those wanting to increase government dependents have been drafting recruits while we worker bees have been busy paying for their campaign through taxes for years and recently, stimulus packages re-routed to ACORN type organizations. Obama type community organizers have been training Progressive recruits how to “help moderate members of Congress” by framing Progressive issues in “palatable” ways.

An example of from the Center for Progressive Leadership

Question: Why would I need to make an issue “palatable” if it will stand on its own merit?

Answer: Because it is a lie in need of sugar coating.

Progressives are Socialists are Communists and are by definition anti-American. It’s past time everyone was made aware of their existence and agenda.

I would encourage bloggers to research these letters and the people who signed them. Find their opponents and support them. Post them in lists by state on your blogs along with their opponents.

November is coming!

Socia.list

This weekend, I plan to create a new blog page similar to the Texas 11 that, beginning with Texas, will contain a list of the State Senators and Representatives who align themselves with the PSN, along with their opposing candidates if available.

The title of that page will be Socia.list.

Catchy, don’t you think?

If anyone would like to help with compiling that list, I wouldn’t argue.  Just send me a link or comment with your post’s url and after verifying, I’ll be happy to include it. BTW, Project Vote Smart is a valuable resource for finding that type of information.

UPDATE: My apologies to John Carey of  The Current for not giving him the proper credit for bringing this group to my attention.

Also, No Sheeples Here’s proprietor extraordinaire, Carol has created a video that echos the message in this post.

The new Ten Buck Friday poll is up. You’ll notice that John Faulk from (TX- 18), is again included. I know you know who I voted for, right? Mr. Faulk is running against that train-wreck queen Sheila Jackson Lee, who is featured, not in a good way, as one of the 11 Texans who voted for Obamacare on this site somewhere or another.

Let’s vote for John Faulk in this weeks poll and get him a monetary boost to help dethrone the queen, shall we?

This week, RightKlik is evidently engaged in some capitalistic endeavor so No Sheeples Here has stepped up to compile a list of links for us. Hey, thanks Carol!

A few weeks ago, while listening to some old Hank Jr.  I remembered a song he did in the seventies called Outlaw Women. It occurred to me that it might make good background music for a tribute to the conservative ladies in the political arena today. I sought out the tune and upon hearing it again, realized that a few lines just didn’t quite fit what I thought the proper message should be, which lead to a search for a song that did fit, but I kept coming back to the Outlaw. This left one choice. I would have to rewrite some lines and *gasp* sing the thing myself.

What follows is the result of the last few weeks agonizing in the studio over enunciation and phrasing and then compiling photos and learning how to use the video software. (Thanks Carol!)

I apologize in advance if I left anyone out. You can also blame me for any mistakes or faux-pas, or you can just blame Bush. Yea, that’s the ticket. Blame Bush.

Feel free to share it with anyone who likes Grizzly Mamas and really bad vocals.

Cheers!

The new poll is up and running. I’m a bit late posting but better late than never right?

This week I’ve nominated Francisco Canseco (TX-23) who is running against one of the 11 Texans who voted for Obamacare, Ciro Rodriguez.

.

.

It appears that Rep. Rodriguez thinks you should listen to him when he lies to you, you little insolent woman!

I don’t believe any taxpayer should be treated in such a way. Even if they don’t believe a word you say.

Let’s support someone who has the right message of Constitutionally limited government.

Francisco Canseco:

Our federal government has become a power and money grabbing behemoth which places itself above our individual liberties and freedom.

America’s true strength comes from our rugged individualism, entrepreneurial spirit, faith in God, and family unity.

You can friend Francisco on Facebook too!

I’ve cast my vote. Now it’s your turn!

Mr. Canseco:

Stolen from Right Klik:
B.J. Lawson wins this week’s “Ten Buck Fridays” poll.
B.J. Lawson is a young physician from North Carolina (NC-04) who was running against an entrenched liberal incumbent back in 2008, back before it was so cool to do so. Dr. Lawson has returned in 2010, riding the red wave that promises to sweep away liberals all over the country.
Lawson has been endorsed by the U.S. Senate’s most courageously stubborn defender of the Constitution, Tom Coburn (R-OK).

Senator Tom Coburn, the leading Medical Doctor in the U.S. Senate endorsed B.J. Lawson today.

“Our health care system is broken, and has only been made worse by this administration’s actions. Americans face skyrocketing medical costs with declining quality and availability due to oppressive big government policies.
Reversing these trends demands leadership that will return health care to patients and physicians, and get government and insurance bureaucracies out of our exam rooms.

I’m proud to endorse Dr. William (B.J.) Lawson in his campaign for Congress in North Carolina’s 4th District. As physicians, we have sworn to uphold the Hippocratic Oath — putting patients first, and above all else, doing no harm. As public servants, we swear to uphold the United States Constitution and protect the freedoms of the American people. Dr. Lawson will stand with me in the United States Congress in support of these sacred principles.

I hope that conservative bloggers across the country will join me in promoting and supporting B.J. Lawson for Congress. If you can, please send a few dollars his way…

Donate to B.J. Lawson here.
