House District 96 State Rep. Candidate Mike Leyman~ “It’s None of your Business”

Date posted: April 29, 2012

Below is a perfect example of the “Power of the People” to ask the right questions. 
Texas House District 96 State Rep. Candidate Mike Leyman is posed a question about his suspension from the Arlington, TX police department and tells the audience that it is “NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS.”

Texans, are you OK with that kind of answer coming from someone running to represent you? 

Next question…

Mr. Leyman, why were you investigated and suspended ?

Taking it local~ Voices Empower is proud to Endorse Mike Brucia for Texas State Representative District 64

Date posted: April 24, 2012

Alice Linahan along with the Voices Empower team is excited to endorse Mike Brucia for Texas State Representative District 64 in Denton County.

Mike Brucia has garnered support from truly Consistent Conservative names from across the state such as…..

Texas Conservative Digest Endorses Mike Brucia

Mike Receives “A” rating from Texas State Rifle Association

Mike receives “A” rating from National Rifle Association

Cathie Adams Endorses Mike Brucia

Young Conservatives of Texas Endorses Mike Brucia

Americans for Prosperity Applauds State House Candidate Mike Brucia

As Donna Garner warned us about….. “Texas voters have a problem“.  ”

“We conservatives must be able to distinguish which Texas legislators are “the real thing” before we vote in the  primaries.” 

Most of the Republican legislators who ran in the last election on Nov. 2, 2010, campaigned as “conservatives.”  However, how many of them voted as conservatives during the 82nd Legislative Session?

In other words, how many of them put actions before rhetoric?

Myra Crownover who supported Joe Straus for the Speaker of the House in 82ND LEGISLATIVE SESSION proved that we were correct about both she and Joe. They are Conservative in Name Only.

TEXAS EAGLE FORUM’S 2011 SCORECARD

To our rescue has come Texas Eagle Forum with its 2011 Legislative Scorecard.

Thanks to the hard work of Texas Eagle Forum (TEF), we no longer have to ponder who is “the real thing” and who is a “fake conservative.”

On 8.2.11, TEF released a quantitative analysis of a wide spectrum of votes cast during the 82nd Legislative Session and has come up with a percentile rating for each member of the Texas Legislature.

What I like about TEF’s scorecard is that the ratings are based upon a broad range of issues that are among the most important to the majority of Texans:

Sonogram Bill, Photo I. D., Defunding of Planned Parenthood, Sanctuary Cities Ban, Spending the Rainy Day Fund, Constitutional Convention (Con-Con), Protection from EPA Lawsuits, TSA and the Anti-Groping Bill, Homeschoolers, Home Owners Association Oversight, Real I. D., Bullying, More Bureaucracy, School Mental Health and Suicide Programs, Big Brother Is Watching, Cost of ObamaCare, Cockfighting, Summer Nutrition Program, Tax Incentives for Green Vehicles, Health Care Compact, Major Event Trust Fund, and Gun Rights.

(*Of course, not every vote that was cast during the 82nd Legislative Session could be considered in TEF’s ratings.)

Myra Crownover scored: 33% Conservative Rating.  When I was in school that was a BIG FAT “F”  

Therefore I will be voting in the Texas Primary on May 29th for MIKE BRUCIA!!  I am tired of people running as Conservatives and proving over and over again they are not Conservative Republicans!!

The Texas Republican convention process is now underway. Please do not let this opportunity pass you by. Some counties are holding precinct conventions and others are not.  Attending the precinct convention is the first step in the convention process so it is important for you to attend.

Most counties are bypassing the precinct conventions and holding either the Senatorial District Convention (larger urban areas) or County Convention either on Saturday, April 21.

It is important that many of you become delegates to the Republican Party of Texas Convention in Fort Worth, June 7-9, 2012, so you must participate in the earlier processes in order to qualify to become a delegate.

Why this Texas Conservative Tea Party activist won’t fall inline behind Newt Gingrich.

Date posted: April 17, 2012

It truly is simple, Newt Gingrich can’t win in the primary and he can’t beat Obama in the general election. The current delegate count proves that. That is the goal correct? Beat Obama in the general election in November.

One of the reasons I became a strong supporter of Rick Santorum is because I saw a clear path to victory for him to beat Obama.

He is the only candidate who could bring together four major voting blocks.

1. Catholics ( Romney has a Catholic problem moving forward……)

2. Evangelicals

3. Jews ( Rick Santorum is clearly the strongest candidate on Israel) Jews for Rick Santorum: US Needs to Do More Than Talk on Iran

4. Blue Collar Manufacturing workers.  Rick Santorum’s  Economic Freedom Agenda  

So here we find ourselves today in a situation where Rick Santorum was forced by the RNC (Republican National Committee) to concede to Romney because they have been manipulating the rules and delegate counts in states across the country. I might add with the help of the media. I won’t even say liberal media because Fox is just as guilty. Rick Santorum is a realist and he understands unlike Newt Gingrich that this is not about him. It is about getting the Conservative Voices into Washington. He understands that the numbers do not add up for him to be able to win the Republican nomination. So he has suspended his campaign and is working hard to help drive our conservative voice into a position of power. I believe it is a brilliant strategy.

In Texas we have seen first hand Newt Gingrich at work once again influence peddling with the Tea Party. Just out this week was a radio interview by Katrina Pierson,  appointed by whom we are not sure as the voice of the Texas Tea Party. On this show Katrina uses well known tactics of the left of creating a wedge between conservatives and using identity politics to drive a narrative. Here is a link to the show.

Here are quotes from her show.

“If you are a fiscal conservative Ron Paul or Newt Gingrich are your options. If you are a Conservative Christian Newt is your choice.” 

Katrina says… “I have been watching very closely the grassroots in Texas who are supporting Rick Santorum, these people are wavering, they put themselves in a corner in the Presidential race essentially by smearing Newt Gingrich’s character as far as his governance goes. The true character  of these people will be determined when the campaign comes to Texas who they will be openly supporting because you can not call yourself a grassroots activist and not support the grassroots candidate.”

First of all Katrina when did the leaders of the Dallas Tea Party start endorsing candidates and deciding who the grassroots candidates are? I thought that was a HUGE~  No! No!

Second you are essentially telling me that my Christian Conservative character is determined by  openly supporting a candidate who can not win in the primary and take out Obama in the general election.

Third, do you not think that pushing out content like what your guest on the show PolitiJim produces essentially calling women who support Rick Santorum SLUTSS not smearing Rick Santorum and his supporters. In addition as a Tea Party Leader do you think the video that you pushed out to your following on tweeter using the F-Word and mocking the death of Rick and Karen Santorum’s son Gabrielle  is okay?

Retweeted by Katrina Pierson

Rick Santorum – The Wrong Choice For America   
Quote from Katrina on her show “We are honored to have PolitiJim on our show today.
In addition according to Katrina Pierson via twitter~ Rick Santorum is “pre 1965 with his thinking. Pro Jim crow and promotes class warfare, and his supporters are clueless religious fanatics.”

So basically in Texas Newt Gingrich is depending on gaining the votes of Conservative Texans by partnering with people who are using tactics of the left and have smeared the true Conservative Candidate in the race, Rick Santorum. Well, this Texas Catholic Christian Conservative Tea Party Activist will have no part of your scheme to take on the Republican establishment.

Instead I will stand tall with the True Conservative in the Race and follow his lead. Last night on a conference call to over 4,000 supporters Rick and Karen Santorum along with their beautiful daughter Bella told us they are “Not Backing Down”. When asked if we should continue to vote for him in the Texas primary Rick said…”that is your personal choice.” and then said “we want to make sure our delegates go the convention and have a say, we’re planning to continue to work with the states to make sure that our delegates are seated, stay tuned for more details.”

As I said I will stand firm with the candidate that I trust, who has proven himself to be the only honest candidate in the presidential race. We will take on the RNC with class and character.

What we have seen in full display is Republican Presidential candidates who are willing to use the disgusting tactics of the left to manipulate the average voter.

If Mitt Romney is indeed the Republican nominee I want my guy to have a seat at the table. In order to earn that seat Rick Santorum needs to prove that he has a network of strong grassroots Conservative voters, like  I described above. The way for him to do that is for those people to vote for him in the remaining primaries all across the  country.

It will be these Conservatives and Independents who will either win it or lose it for Romney and the RNC in my opinion against Obama. They represent what Rick brought to the race, a clear contrast to Obama.

Romney must have them to win. In order for Romney to get these grassroots people he must give Rick Santorum a seat at the table in his administration. Some will say that Rick Santorum sold out. I do not agree with that. Rick Santorum is just making sure that my voice will be heard by a Romney administration. He understands it is not about him it is about the collective Conservative Voice in America!!

You never know as well. God may just have a miracle around the corner. I certainly have seen it on a daily basis  with the Rick Santorum campaign.

Below is what I have done to do my part for Rick and Karen Santorum.

My first Action: 

Pray and give thanksgiving for the amazing patriots I am now connected with through  the Team Santorum Grassroots.

 

My second Action:

I donated $100 to the Santorum Campaign to help reduce the debt of his campaign.

My Third Action: I joined

Operation Delaware 

We are Operation Delaware, the army of America’s next George Washington, pushing back against the Republican National Committee and GOP establishment figures across the country who have changed the rules on delegate selection in order to ensure that Mitt Romney wins the nomination regardless of the popular vote of the people.

We are Operation Delaware, pushing back against Wall Street suits with big pockets who have spent millions funding Mitt Romney’s campaign because they are afraid of Rick Santorum’s anti-bailout pro-freedom agenda.

We are Operation Delaware, pushing back against the so-called “conservative” media who have sold their backbone to Mitt Romney.

We are Operation Delaware. We are going to vote for Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania and across the country to send a message to the RNC, Mitt Romney and his friends on Wall Street, YOU CANNOT BUY OUR VOTES! 

My Forth Action: I have my sign back in my yard and I plan on posting and telling all my friends and neighbors to vote for Rick Santorum in the Primary!!

As I have said before I will vote for Rick Santorum in the Primary because that is my only opportunity to voice my opinion. After the primary I will vote for whom ever the Republican candidate is because we must unite to take out Obama in Nov.

This Texan is supporting Rick Santorum and the Delaware Troops

Date posted: April 16, 2012

After reading my good friend Lisa Graas’ article Operation Delaware I was inspired to action.

Here is a excerpt:

ATTENTION, PATRIOTS! We have long fought for freedom and with our candidate having suspended his campaign, things do not look well, but this is no time to lose heart. Now is the time toStage One is the formation of the National Grassroots for Rick Santorum group which is working to identify as many who are willing who will join with us to make Rick Santorum our nominee. This is an ongoing effort, so join us!

Patrick Caddell ~ Brilliant? I think so……

Date posted: April 13, 2012

Patrick Caddell

After reading today’s article by Patrick Caddell and Doug Schoen in Politico I once again realize what a gift it is that I have had the opportunity to meet Patrick, and get to know him. He truly sees and can articulate what so many of us can not. I urge you to read his article and decide what you are going to do next……..

As for me I believe the power belongs to the people. Until the passive majority of Americans stop buying the propaganda they are being fed by the political elite and the media who are in their back pocket we will not be a safe and secure nation. It does not matter what party is in power. In addition I will not just follow blindly leaders of grassroots groups or organizations. Just because someone looks and sounds good does not mean they represent me. Texas TINO ~ Tea Party Leader In Name Only

I will follow leaders who stand on conviction and know that it is not about them. It is about “We The People”. I would recommend strongly that if Mitt Romney is the Republican candidate that he give Rick Santorum a seat at the table because he does represent my families voice.

I would encourage anyone who can make it to the True The Vote National Summit in Houston on April 27th and 28th that you do so. Patrick Caddell will be one of the Keynote speakers and we have a lot to learn from him. You will find the link below.

The empty election

What has happened to the 2012 campaign?

This should be the most important election of our lifetime. But it’s clear that something is seriously wrong. How can we be having such an underwhelming, uninspiring and irrelevant election campaign at such a critical juncture?

Never before have voters people had more opportunities to participate in the political conversation; share and disseminate information, and speak directly to our political leaders. Yet the dialogue coming from both parties is as dysfunctional and corrosive as it has ever been in a campaign.

This has been a relentlessly nasty, divisive and vapid race. The only way to achieve victory has been through negative advertising — where the candidates play a secondary role to Super PACs.

The result has been a declining level of confidence, both domestic and international, about our leadership role. Our political system, once the ideal, is now a subject of widespread ridicule.

The very fact that 2012 is being carried out as if it were no different from any other election, at an extraordinary moment — when profound international challenges loom, and serious national crises have gone unaddressed — speaks to the ultimate disconnect between the people and their elected leaders.
