Texas Republicans in Trouble

The Texas Republican Party is being destroyed by some of its members. The Dallas Morning News has reported that prominent Texas Republicans have lost their jobs or voted in support of the Democratic Party.

Just last week, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) lost his job as a state Senator. His colleagues praised him for his principled stand against amnesty. Senator John Cornyn, a former Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice, gave him a standing ovation for that.

In a stunning display of anti-democratic behavior, a Republican State Senator and mayor were caught in an audio recording asking how to get “Illegal Aliens out of trouble in Texas. “It’s a shame that some in the Texas Republican Party are being “blinded” by radical political correctness. It appears that they are not being as partisan as they need to be.

Such a recording of these officials is just one of many that show how viciously these Republicans are being attacked by the media. While trying to portray them as martyrs, they are being painted as political pawns who are puppets of the Obama Administration. Apparently, it’s not enough to run for higher office and hope that you can pick up the cheap political advantages.

When you really think about it, it’s really amazing that these Texas Republicans is being attacked for showing their true colors. There are a lot of people who are not happy with the president’s agenda. They want something that would make a difference. They want the economy to grow again and they want to see something done about illegal immigration.

Yet, most of the leadership is just playing games, pitting citizens against each other and plotting to undermine the elected leaders. These individuals, many of whom are simply trying to take advantage of the situation to further their political careers, appear to be playing games with the lives of ordinary citizens. Texas Republicans is playing political Russian roulette and it’s hard to stop them when they are getting away with it.

Not long ago, I was talking to a friend and she told me that her fellow Texans will go to a dark alley to protect his rights and it’s our leaders who are losing all of their people’s priorities. We hear about this from all sides and we just don’t seem to know what to do. All politicians seem to want to do is divide us and fight amongst ourselves.

So what do the Republicans do? In these difficult times, do they decide to throw the American flag out of the roof of the Capitol Building? Not likely. Instead, what do they do?

They demonstrate that they are a bunch of loyalists and that they understand the importance of the American spirit. What can you do when you have your feet pounded into the ground by all of these Republicans? But, here’s the thing, it may take something more than that to turn things around in this country.

It may take a new life in Texas and a new chapter in our history that are worthy of being written by people of good faith. What happens when we’re not willing to just hide in our homes and pretend that we aren’t living under some sort of government dictatorship? How do we get out of this dead end?

Well, we have some conservative news outlets that are keeping a close eye on the story. Most of these publications will report that the story is part of a long term effort to destroy the Texas GOP. The same people who will simply ignore the story, as will others.

The only people who will be aware of it are those Americans who have no clue about the damage that’s being done to our nation and our Republic. So, for this group of people, I say it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee. Take a good look at where you stand and if you still want to have any sort of control, then you better start acting like it!
