7: Answering Objections

8: What Can I Do?




The person you elected to protect your interests and propose policy on your behalf has no assurance of being able to do anything because all the legislative power in the state is concentrated in the hands of the Senate President Pro Tempore (Pro Tempe) and the Speaker of the House of Representatives (Speaker).  It does not matter what our elected officials want to accomplish on our behalf.   The Pro Tempe and the Speaker meet in secret caucuses and in private offices to decide which bills to hear and which bills to kill.


I will outline for you one of the biggest reasons why representative government does not work as it once did. This problem exists in almost every state and in Congress. When you understand what this problem is, you will clearly see that it underlies many other issues, and that changing it will help make other reforms possible. I am going to teach you the step-by-step system you can use to fix this problem in your state. Once you see what needs to be done, you will be prepared to take action and remove a major barrier to true representative government.

NYT: In Narrow Decision, Supreme Court Sides With Baker Who Turned Away Gay Couple

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who had refused to create a wedding cake for a gay couple. The court’s decision was narrow, and it left open the larger question of whether a business can discriminate against gay men and lesbians based on rights protected by the First Amendment.

The court passed on an opportunity to either bolster the right to same-sex marriage or explain how far the government can go in regulating businesses run on religious principles. Instead, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s majority opinion turned on the argument that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which originally ruled against the baker, had been shown to be hostile to religion because of the remarks of one of its members.

At the same time, Justice Kennedy strongly reaffirmed protections for gay rights.

“The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts,” he wrote, “all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market.”

Justice Kennedy often casts the deciding vote in closely divided cases on major social issues. When the court agreed to hear the Colorado case last June, it seemed to present him with a stark choice between two of his core commitments. On the one hand, Justice Kennedy has written every major Supreme Court decision protecting gay men and lesbians. On the other, he is the court’s most ardent defender of free speech.

Find us at CPAC 2018!

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), hosted by the American Conservative Union, combines ideas with action to leverage the strength of thousands of grass-roots activists to break through the resistance of Washington’s powerful elites.

Members of the Constitution Party of Texas gathered at CPAC 2018 in the Nation’s Capital to spread the message of the Constitution Party among a great group of conservative leaders.

Support Roy Moore

Fellow Patriot,

If we let them take down Judge Roy Moore, we let them take down the essence of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.

These Amendments each contain a due process clause. Due process ensures the rights and equality of all citizens and acts as a safeguard from arbitrary or capricious denial of life, liberty or property. It ensures that every citizen gets his or her day in court. Read More

SUCCEED Act Press Release

SUCCEED ACT: The Constitution Party of Texas strongly opposes the new senate bill known as the “Succeed” act which (like DACA) grants amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. The Constitution Party has long been the only national political party to stand firmly against the proposals for a “Pathway to Citizenship/Comprehensive Immigration Reform/Amnesty” that come out of Washington. If you oppose amnesty, call the offices of John Cornyn 972-239-1310 & Ted Cruz 202-224-5923 and tell them you oppose the Succeed Act. Go to NumbersUSA.com to send a free fax or for more info.

Constitution Day – 2017 – by Daniel New

The Constitution, we are told, is the Supreme Law of the Land.  

Every elected official takes an oath to support and defend that Constitution, “against all enemies, foreign or domestic.”

What do you think are the odds that your elected or appointed representatives have even read the Constitution, one time? Ever?  

What do you think are the odds that your elected or appointed representatives have ever attended a seminar or a course on the subject of what that document says and meant at the time it was written? Read More

Update on Texas Special Session

With only 2 weeks left to the Special Session, it is obvious that the Texas State House is not interested in passing the legislation that the Governor wanted to be passed, they are moving at what the Dallas Morning News calls a slower pace. Like the United States Senate, the House in Texas is obstructing legislation they don’t like. Here is where the legislation stands as of the 4th of August.

 Sunset Legislation – passed by both houses, State Senate and House. Read More
