Open Letter to Texas Conservatives

“This is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.” 

I used to type this little statement over and over when I was in school learning to type. For me I had always taken it for granted. But today friends it is truer than it has ever been in our lifetimes. We are charged with electing representatives for our area to send to Washington D.C. We have the basic information. In these times what we really need to know is the character. We need people who will vote to repeal laws not write new ones. We need people who espouse and respect the U.S. Constitution. We need people who will fight the establishment leadership who are only interested in winning the next election even if it means making unprincipled exceptions against the People’s interest. I write you today to ask you to please vote in this run-off election. And when you go into that booth I want you to ask yourself one question. “Who is more likely to have the character to fight our own leadership when they attempt to usurp the U.S. Constitution?” We know what the Democrats will do my friends. Our fight is to clean out our own party and ensure that constitutional republicans make up the foundation of the GOP. Compromising with liberals who want to replace our constitution with social justice is just a slower train to Hell. We need sound leadership.

It is for these reasons that I am voting for Wes Riddle in TX CD 25. Wes was writing about the Constitution when Roger Williams was lobbying for the auto bailout. While Roger was fundraising for crony capitalists Wes was founding the Central Texas Tea Party. Wes had a distinguished military career and taught at West Point. He is a small business owner, husband, father and Patriot. I am proud to have met him in these perilous times. Make no mistake. I have told Wes to his face that if he goes to D.C. and starts compromising his principles, I will be actively campaigning against him in two years. It is the sad truth that we must watch them all very closely. And you know what, Wes agrees with me.

I will also be voting for Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate. Ted is a Tea Party favorite while Dewhurst is the establishment insider. That’s all I need to know for now. Again, we will have to watch Ted like a hawk. If he wanders off of the reservation we will primary him out of office as well. However, don’t let millions of dollars of negative advertising buy this election. The last thing we need right now is another weak kneed Republican like David Dewhurst who will water down the GOP agenda just like he helped Joe Strauss do in Texas in the last session of the legislature.This is the sad truth of these times. Trust no one. Verify everything. Watch what they do rather than listen to what they say.

Yours in Liberty,
Keith D. Rodebush
