Yes, America has arrived at multiple crossroads in this election year.
First, we have the frontline battle in Washington to save our constitution. Of equal importance, there is a monumental effort to shore up a flagging economy. This is the first of two articles examining those two crossroads.
There are those who would have you believe the constitution is a living document. This document was debated, discussed, and approved many years ago as the framework for a free country. Learned scholars had reviewed and analyzed the pros and cons of every word and syllable of this document. The US Constitution has stood us in good stead and continues to provide our path through the turbulent times in the world today.
Why is America’s Constitution under attack? The Democrat Party has been infiltrated and monopolized by Socialists and Marxists in Washington. There is no mistake. These groups would have you believe that the great American “experiment” has failed and a change needs to be made. Because of this change in the Democrat Party (actual leadership in control), the required shift in the Republican party is more urgently needed by the country.
The actual job description in the United States for a politician, now “mandates” a requirement for Constitutional Conservatives (if our American way of life is to be preserved). The actions of the “Country Club” Republicans of yesterday will not steer the country back toward the vision of the original founders. Country Club Republicans need not apply. The candidates for the US Senate over the last few decades were typically a person who takes office, spent the majority of their life in office, and accumulated various perks and privileges distributed by lobbyists and special interest groups. In prior years, there wasn’t much harm with these types of people holding office. Today the heart and soul of America are at stake. We must elect those who are willing to stand up and fight for our constitution.
There are many such examples of this “war” in the Republican Party being played out today. In Texas, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst is challenging Mr. Ted Cruz for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Mrs. Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Lt. Governor Dewhurst and Mr. Cruz have devoted many years of service to our country. This is where the similarity ends. Being an independent writer, I’ve had the opportunity to observe the leadership of Lt. Governor Dewhurst in the Texas Senate. He is a moderate, who is reluctant to tackle tough, constitutional issues. Unfortunately, this is exactly the job description required to take our country back from the sharp swing left toward a more socialist society. The Lt. Governor’s strong supporters include the majority of high profile lobbyists in Texas and “squishy” Republicans in the Texas legislature and in Washington. I appreciate people who give to the country, but believe the age of the Country Club Republicans who hold court must necessarily end.
Enter Mr. Ted Cruz. He is a Constitutional Conservative. Mike Lee and Rand Paul are Constitutional Conservatives who were elected to the U.S. Senate in the last few years. They are among a handful of new U.S. Senators who endeavor daily to defend the Constitution from the sharp tug to the left by socialists such as Senator Harry Reid and his cronies. Mr. Cruz has successfully defended the United States Constitution at the state, and national level. He has fought for US Sovereignty against a world court and the President of the United States. The time has come for Texas to send in more cavalry for Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Pat Toomey, and other strong constitutionalists such as Senator Jim DeMint. These men are unafraid to make the difficult choices and are not ruled by special interests or lobbyists.
From local level through the highest national levels, we see the fight for true Constitutional Conservatism against political cronyism. Witness the HD 26 race in Fort Bend County Texas. Mrs. Jacquie Chaumette is another person, unafraid to make strong intelligent choices to protect citizens of Texas. Her opponent is supported by many of the Country Club Republicans who have made a career and fortune by being “popular” with special interest groups and big lobbyists in Texas. Mrs. Chaumette has served in positions that afforded her the opportunity to make strong fiscal choices based upon the laws of our state and our country. She is definitely part of the breath of fresh air surging forward in American Politics.
So, the choice is yours. Do you continue to elect career politicians who bend to the whims of lobbyists and special interest groups? OR, do you elect new people who are not under the control of those groups? Have a look at the supporters of people, prior to voting. We need people with a strong ability to stand up for the people, not the special interest groups.
Constitutional Conservatives are the prescription required for an ailing country. Elect them at all levels of government.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”
