Debra Medina - TX Gubernatorial Candidate
Wow - listen to this podcast!
Running against incumbent Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Debra Medina is a no nonsense pro-liberty candidate.
She believes Rick Perry has merely been telling people what they want to hear as elections approach ... She says he was the same Rick Perry that has been working to sell Texas roads to foreign interests and has failed to protect citizens' property by not pushing for legislation to protect property owners from eminent domain abuse. He advocated for the pharmaceutical lobby by mandating the fast tracked Gardasil vaccinations for all young school girls, and he only recently began talking about Texas 10th amendment rights giving it nothing more than lip service. He said he'd reject Washington's stimulus money, but took it anyway.
Debra Medina believes private property and gun ownership are essential elements of freedom.
She wants to eliminate property tax in Texas replacing it with a broader based sales tax saying it will mean a $3 billion increase in net personal income in Texas and will add 125,000-175,000 new jobs.
She wants to protect gun ownership: Protecting freedom requires that the people be well armed. Government cannot protect us from violence, we must defend ourselves. Texans must not compromise and must not surrender their right to keep and bear arms. We must not only nullify federal laws that threaten that right but encourage citizens to be, as Madison encouraged, “trained to arms, as that is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”
She wants to secure our border: Texas must promote healthy immigration and trade through the legal ports of entry. We cannot wait on Washington D.C. to act. As governor I will make addressing illegal immigration and promoting sovereignty a top priority.
and she wants to Restore Sovereignty: The U.S. Constitution not only protects citizens' freedoms in the Bill of Rights, it also divides power between the federal and state governments and ultimately reserves final authority for the people themselves. Texas must stop the over reaching federal government and nullify federal mandates in agriculture, energy, education, healthcare, industry, and any other areas D.C. is not granted authority by the Constitution.
and... she homeschools her children!
So far we haven't heard not one word from any Gubernatorial candidate in Connecticut regarding Tenth Amendment rights! or the nullification of over reaching federal legislation! Or the protection of eminent domain abuse here in Connecticut, where the Kelo case in New London was born!
