    TEA PARTY VICTORY IN TEXAS!!!

    Looks like the Tea Party is far from dead in Texas ppl. The Republicrat "machine" was defeated like a whipped dog in a run off election there today.

    Boom: Cruz Wins Texas Run-off


    http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybens...s_texas_runoff


    A massive upset, and a major triumph for both the conservative and Tea Party movements:


    Former state solicitor general Ted Cruz, a tea party-aligned conservative once regarded as a long-shot candidate, has won the Republican runoff in Texas, where he will be the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in the November election. The Associated Press has called the race for Cruz over Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. Cruz will be a heavy favorite over Democratic nominee Paul Sadler, who also won a runoff on Tuesday. Cruz, an emerging conservative star whose father emigrated to the United States from Cuba, has drawn comparisons to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and has been lauded by national conservative political pundits and groups for over a year. His victory is a major blow to the Republican establishment in Texas, which lined up squarely behind Dewhurst. It’s also a victory for the tea party and national conservatives who lined up behind Cruz even when a surprise win appeared unlikely. Cruz’s win is a remarkable political feat and arguably the Senate upset of the cycle.


    For an idea of why conservatives are so high on Cruz, read National Review's early endorsement. The guy's really impressive. With 28 percent of the vote counted, former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz leads Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst by eight percentage points (54-46), and the Associated Press is calling it for the conservative. The Club for Growth, which poured more than $5 million into the race on Cruz's behalf, released this gratified statement moments ago:


    “Ted Cruz is a champion of economic freedom and we look forward to seeing him fight for America in the Senate .” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Ted Cruz won because he clearly articulated the pro-growth message that Republican voters across the country have responded to. Tonight, Texas Republicans have shown Washington that the people do not work for the politicians – the politicians work for the people.”


    National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman John Cornyn -- a fellow Texan -- is joining the chorus of congratulations for Cruz, praising him for his once-improbable victory and pledging to fully back him in the general election:


    This has been a hard-fought and spirited primary battle and the people of Texas would have been fortunate to have any one of these well-qualified candidates as their next U.S. Senator. But I could not be more pleased with the nomination of Ted Cruz and I offer my warmest congratulations to Ted, his wife Heidi and their two daughters. He and his team ran a remarkable race and this is a well-deserved and well-earned victory. Throughout his life, and his professional career, Ted Cruz has been a shining example to all of us that hard work, perseverance, and the freedom and opportunity that this country has to offer opens the doors for every American to achieve their goals.

    Ted believes, as I do, that we need to make Washington DC look a little more like the great state of Texas, and that starts with restoring common-sense, conservative values in our nation’s Capital. The Texas economy has been growing precisely because we believe in the values of freedom, personal responsibility and limited government. With a strong, hard-working ally in Ted Cruz, we will work to pass a balanced budget amendment, remove the federal government’s boot off the neck of our small businesses, and repeal-and-replace ObamaCare. I will do everything I can to help elect Ted Cruz in November and look forward to working with him next year.


    In related news, Democrat Paul Sadler won his party's Senate run-off this evening. PPP's latest batch of (very preliminary) head-to-head polls showed Cruz leading Sadler by ten points. There's a very good chance that another strong Hispanic conservative is headed to the US Senate.


    UPDATE - With 50 percent in, Cruz's lead has expanded to ten points. This wasn't even close.

    You see, folks ? There ARE GOOD and decent people at work on the behalf of the America we strive to be. Do NOT give up or give in, and most of all, do NOT take ANY of this for granted. We must STILL be vigilant and hold those we elect, accountable for their actions.
    Make SURE you are registered to VOTE !

    Now if we can replace another 350 or so of them, we're well on our way to becoming a "Constitutional Republic" again!

    AMEN to all the above.
    Yesterday in Georgia, the voters said a big fat NO to the T-SPLOST (transportation special purpose option sales tax) by a 2/3 majority. Our state spent 8 million dollars to hype this up and they got their butt kicked.
    If they would have attended (and listened) to any town hall roundtable meetings, the $8M would still be in the bank. This is big brother telling us we need more buses and trains, and the people are saying we need less big brothers.
    We learned you cannot trust the government with our money. Example: The toll on GA400 was supposed to go away in 2011, but somehow the tolls were extended to 2020. With this vote coming up, the governer suddenly said he would end it this year. :shock: :shock: :shock:
    As the voters from both parties indicated yesterday,"you can fool me once, but not twice".

    For "old and Tired" . .

    The drive for public transportation is the liberals telling you that they no longer want you driving your personal transportation to work or to see your Aunt and Uncle in another city or 'burb . .

    But, the dumbasses will find out that when everybody ride the trains, and nobody drives or buys all the crap we have to have to feed our transportation, where are they gonna get the money that gasoline, tires, and various taxes on our cars create now?

    Those train tickets are gonna be really frickin' expensive!
