Last week I made my first ever campaign donation-and it was to someone I can't even vote for. This evening I checked the mail and there were two shiny new bumper stickers waiting. I dropped what I was doing and went straight out and put it on my car.
Like many conservatives, I'm frustrated with the direction our local, state and national governments are taking. There was a time when political convictions meant something. Now it seems like those "convictions" only come out during campaign season. I've always had a general frustration with the divide between the party platform and what actually gets accomplished. But now that frustration has become something that makes me want to smack every politician "Three Stooges" style.
I've been listening to Dan Patrick on the radio for quite some time. His message is clear. His goals transcend the good ole boy network in Austin. I'm willing to give him any support I can in his bid to get to Austin.
If you are reading this and are in Texas Senate district 7, I encourage you to at least do some of your own investigative work into the race at hand. Senate 7 will go Republican, so your only opportunity to choose will be in the primary election...so get out there and VOTE!
Tommy and Rob, I hope you are reading this! Some of us are tired of lip service.
