The 82nd Texas Legislative Session

“Dilemma for Texas Voters” by Donna Garner

Texas voters have a problem.  We conservatives must be able to distinguish which Texas legislators are “the real thing” before we vote in the March 6, 2012 primaries (early voting starts on 2.21.12).  Those dates are not that far away, and campaigns are gearing up right now.

Most of the Republican legislators who ran in the last election on Nov. 2, 2010, campaigned as “conservatives.”  However, how many of them voted as conservatives during the 82nd Legislative Session?

In other words, how many of them put actions before rhetoric?


The 82nd Texas Legislature finally packed it up and went home on June 29, 2011, after having to call a Special Session to finish their business.  We taxpayers had to pay the extra cost.

Since that time, my e-mail box has been full of legislators’ newsletters, nearly all of which have been touting these legislators’ great conservative successes.

On Nov. 2, 2010, Texas voters elected a tsunami of supposedly conservative Republicans.  This election sent a message loud and clear that we Texans expected our legislators to vote for the conservative agenda.  Click here to read the rest of Donna’s eye-opening report.
