"The good news is if we can successfully nationalize this campaign small contributions of $5 or $10 coming from across the country would make a huge difference."
Scott Brown's shocking victory is a mixed blessing for the cause of freedom. On one hand it has put a major roadblock in the path towards Obama Care. On the other hand Scott Brown is a big government Republican. So far there are no signs that true reform is taking place in the GOP. The people in control of the party during the worst two consecutive election cycle defeats in GOP history are still in control of the leadership nationally. This is why a Debra Medina victory is a tremendous opportunity to return to the original constitutionally limited government given us by the founders. The obvious question is why is it that important for Medina to win? The answer is because is that important. Texas is the flagship state of the Republican Party. The Texas GOP is the biggest in the Nation. It's also, heavily controlled by the Bush/McCain wing. The two establishment candidates for governor represent two of the worst examples of compromised career politicians. Both Perry and Hutchson's record are typical of out of touch elitist. Perry, like Obama, The same Obama-like behavior was exhibited by Senator Hutchinson in voting for TARP even though her phone lines were melted down with overwhelming opposition to TARP. Only a fool would expect either Perry or Hutchinson to be any different than they have been their entire political careers. This country will not survive with two socialist political parties.
Like it or not, most Republicans are really FDR Democrats. Virtually all of the New Deal is vigorously supported by and even expanded by Republicans.The GOP today is not the same GOP that fought hard to stop the government expansion during the FDR administration. Unfortunately even back then the infiltration of Progressives into the GOP had begun to transform the party. It's that deep rooted progressive influence that has effectively neutered the Republican Party from being a true small government party. It's for those reasons among others that underscore the huge advancement towards freedom a Medina victory would usher in. Here are some of the major gains that would occur:
1.The era of the career politician would be in serious jeopardy.The founders envisioned citizen rule not career politicians. Medina's victory coupled with the very likely Rand Paul victory in the Senate race in Kentucky would be huge political statements in support of non-career politicians.
2. Medina's strong 10th amendment platform is exactly the type of philosophy needed to help restore State sovereignty.Texas would become the leader in that cause.
3. Medina is a true tax reformer. Her stand on eliminating property tax will serve as a blueprint for the rest of the country to end confiscatory taxing schemes.
4. Medina's strong 2nd amendment position will help the cause nationally. Recent news reports of Obama's justice department shutting down Gun Shows in Texas underscores the hypocrisy of Rick Perry who has remained silent about the Federal intrusion.
The benefits of a Medina victory would go beyond those issues I've mentioned. The psychological benefits of encouraging frustrated small government conservatives would have a ripple effect across the country. This is why I advocate the nationalization of Debra Medina's candidacy.
Scott Brown received massive amounts of money from out of state. The two establishment candidates in Texas have a combined total of about 24 million dollars in their war chest. Medina depends on small contributions from grassroots support and can't compete with big corporate donors. She can if grassroots efforts are expanded nationally. Debra Medina has made amazing gains with limited funding and no statewide recognition prior to the first debate. The second debate will very likely give her another big bump in the polls and put her in a legitimate three way race. She is no longer an impossible long shot.
Most of the press around Texas has praised her debate performance and acknowledged her elevated status. This is a window of opportunity that rarely presents itself and we as patriots must spread the word about Debra Medina.
I know there are important races all across the country that need support and money is tight. The good news is if we can successfully nationalize this campaign small contributions of $5 or $10 coming from across the country would make a huge difference.
