JoAnn: the US Senate Race

Patriots: 

Today starts the race to the finish line in the US Senate race. This has been a unnecessarily nasty race.  It is shameful and unbecoming of people who should get down on their knees every single day to thank God for giving them the privilege of living in this country. Making up lies about an opponent is bad enough, but approving your campaign consultant’s “cut and paste” job, which takes your opponent’s comments on one topic and uses them on an entirely different subject in your TV ads to try to prove you opponent is a liar is just despicable! 

A man who will lie to win an office will lie to keep it.  Think about that. For how much of the truth are you willing to settle? Are you satisfied with a candidate who tells the truth 85% of the time, what about 50% of the time?  Six years is a long, long time to wait to correct the mistake of sending the wrong man to dysfunctional, free-spending Washington, DC! 

Go here to see the truth about all of Dewhurst’s trashy TV, radio, and mail advertisements:  http://www.tedcruz.org/facts/ 

David Dewhurst is spending millions of dollars lying about Ted Cruz in a desperate attempt to distract voters from Dewhurst’s record of:

  • increasing spending while in office – all funds – not just general revenue.  He has been the Lt. Governor on the job while Texas continues to grow its dependence on federal funding.  Our state’s second highest source of revenue behind sales tax is federal funds.  Not a good practice when the money our state is getting is borrowed money!
  • passing budgets balanced with accounting gimmicks, deferrals, tax speed ups on certain businesses, and fund balances intended for other purposes such as trauma centers!
  • spending more than the state takes in and robbing the Rainy Day Fund – which should be reserved for real disasters – not to cover up over-spending!
  • presiding over rampant fraud and waste in state Medicaid programs.

  • crony capitalism – approving a budget that doles out tax dollars to the likes of Apple, Frito-Lay, Bank of America, FaceBook, Country-wide Financial/Bank of America, and Formula One Racing, just to name a few!
  • ignoring the high cost of illegal aliens to the bursting social services safety net; Dewhurst has NEVER, EVER worked to curb illegal aliens’ access to social services for which we are footing the bill!
  • killing the repeal of in-state tuition for children of illegal aliens by appointing a liberal Democrat to chair the committee hearing such bills;
  • failing to get a ban on sanctuary cities which provide hide-outs to those who may well be here to attack our country.

If Dewhurst supports giving social services and welfare to illegals in Texas, why would he try to stop it when he gets to Washington? 

If Dewhurst supports amnesty and failed at ending sanctuary city hide-outs for illegals in Texas, how can we expect him to do any different in DC? 

If Dewhurst supports state gov’t doling out taxpayer dollars to special corporate interests in Texas, why would he oppose it in Washington? 

If Dewhurst supports using deferrals, accounting gimmicks, and budgetary sleights of hand to balance the state budget, how can we expect him to make a difference in Washington? 

The best predictor of what a man will do in the future is what he has done in the past. 

Texas and the United States cannot afford for us to make an expensive mistake like Dewhurst. 

It is time for Texas Constitutional Conservatives to send an earthquake to Austin!  Tell Dewhurst he doesn’t deserve a promotion!  Choose a proven fighter for the Constitution.  Choose a man with a backbone.  Choose Ted Cruz.
