RINO HUNTING IN TEXAS: The Best The Establishment Has To Offer Sucks!

The Austin establishment has a bunch of big ideas. Big-government ideas that is.

That’s what taxpayers have come to learn after listening to the candidates backed by the Austin lobby who are challenging conservative incumbents across the state. And those candidates leave much to be desired.

The most notable is arguably Steve Massengale — challenger to conservative State Rep. Charles Perry of Lubbock.

We’ve written extensively on the boondoggle tax-hike proposal Mr. Massengale and his Lubbock Chamber of Commerce backers are pushing for. If successful, Mr. Massengale and his puppeteers would make Lubbock’s sales-tax rate the highest in the state at 9.25% — all to fund vanity projects like a performing arts center, bike lanes, and even a monorail perhaps.

No, seriously. A monorail.

Massengale’s tax-hike-seeking backers are pushing to install a monorail system in Lubbock, TX, of all places. Taxpayers are still waiting to hear if Mr. Massengale is as supportive of their mass-transit ideas as he is of their tax-hike proposal.

Speaking of mass-transit boondoggles…

Skip Ogle, registered lobbyist and establishment-backed candidate, is attempting to knock Taxpayer Champion Matt Schaefer from his position as State Representative of Tyler.

In a recent debate between the two candidates, Mr. Ogle professed his desire to see the state get sucked into a high-speed rail boondoggle, calling it “a great idea.” Too bad nobody asked him how California’s high-speed rail is coming along.

    Texas is in the target to be taken over by progressives and they are placing progressives in republican groups to taint them with their policies. Texas is in for a fight and thank God they have the grit to fight the battle.

    • Don’t Even Try It!

      Texas! Quit playing “Defense” and start playing “Offense” or you will go down juat like Kaliforicate!

    I somehow feel like the GOP is just partnered up with the Progressives…

    Bill the rinos at the top have been their partners for some time. i can clearly remember Bushes attempted amnesty. And big corporations that complain about all the regulations on them have belonged to the chamber of commerce for a long time. I simply tell people we are being replaced with people who are more easily controlled. And it may seem to be separate at the top but rinos are one worlders and for UN control as much as the left is and this is their goal. They think its more profitiable…..so get courts to just declare you a property of the government, who they will lobby and promise campaign funds to to force you to listen to their ads you dont want to hear and buy their products you dont even want or need. One hand washes the other. And to me…..I read the Bible so it adds up to me. Its all in Revelations. She made nations rich but fell in one day. She sold and bought goods worldwide and peoples lives were worth less then what she forced them to buy. Heck , she even sold people. Chapter 17 goes into detail about Babylon.

          • batlcrewzer

            Sir with all due respect, take a quart of whiskey, a chaw of tobacco and enjoy the MLK holiday. Shaking your little fist at those clouds will only flare up your rheumatism.

          • Me Again

            I am not a man and I don’t drink, smoke or fornicate like DEMOCRATS, YOU WILL GET YOURS IN THE END

          • batlcrewzer

            Mame, with all due respect, your life sounds very boring. That “in the end” business, I hoping you mean my comeuppance. You never know with t-bags.

        • mac12sam12

          Like California and Detroit I’m sure you’re looking forward to it’s failure. Why not turn the whole country into a ghetto, right Tinker Bell>

          • batlcrewzer

            Tell me the truth, the sight of your women swooning over the Pres. is really the rub, isn’t it? He even turned out Jan Brewer.

          • mac12sam12

            Swooning? Brewer hats the gay guy. Total failure and the #1 worst president in history. The numbers back me up. Trust me, any women is safe around barry. Guys? Watch your rear!

          • batlcrewzer

            Men don’t clock another mens’ Johnson or rear. T-bags on the other hand do. At any rate, ya’ got three more years and it ain’t a damn thing you can do about it.

          • mac12sam12

            Why are all gays democrats? 2014 we take the senate and turn barry into a lame duck. Can you say quack quack?

    Co-worker of mine use to live in Oregon,.. He’s God fearing, honest and a hard worker, everything the West coast is NOT! He said that one time Oregon was a bastion of conservatism and common sense from kooky California,.. until the kooks invaded Oregon and now look. Texas stand your ground,.. or else!

  • batlcrewzer

    More t-bag pee and moan. How in the hell do you guys even THINK you can take on Hillary flailing and flapping away at each other like this? I remember there was a time when Repugs were worthy opponents. There is no honor taking candy from a baby.

      ” I remember there was a time when Repugs were worthy opponents”

      You actually make a good point. The lying left has attracted 4 major groups in the US. 1 – The idiots that think socialism is a better system. They aren’t smart enough to see what it’s doing to Europe. 2 – Minorities. The blacks voted for Obama because and only because he’s black. The Hispanics voted for him because he is not white. Can’t even guess why the Jews supported him. 3 – The great American leech. They’ve made a game of living off the backs of hard working, tax paying Americans and a president and congress that has no qualm for raising taxes to buy their vote. 4 – The weakest minded of all, the public service workers unions. The worst of the bunch is the NEA.

      On the other side, you have the so called republican leadership that shoves the McCains and Romneys down our throats and we have to vote for them because they are better than the alternatives.

      But, the socialists better start looking for your own alternatives. Biden, Clinton nor Kerry have a chance with the crap they have pulled and said.

      By the way, I’ve never met a left winger that had a lick of honor.

      • batlcrewzer

        Congratulations! You have the foaming, rabid Kock Bros. useful idiot rap down pat. Being the ‘baggers you are, your party shall continue to “shove” other sorry candidates down your throat.

        “Biden, Clinton nor Kerry have a chance with the crap they have pulled and said.” I bet you said that about your Pres. in October of ’12. We can always count on you guys to be butt backwards. (haha)

          Personally, d-bag, I could care less for the republican party. I’m not a republican. But, anyone stupid enough to vote for lying little turd Ubama is either on welfare, living in mommy and daddy’s basement or just plain ignorant.
