Inflation must be controlled - The cost of food, fuel and housing (and just about everything else) has skyrocketed under the Democratic party's control. Gas prices are at a record high. The inflation that we see today is self-inflicted by the Democratic party. This did not have to happen.
Stop Crime - Houston, Texas, as of this year, 2022, is among the highest in the nation in murders. Our Democratic controlled city government is pathetic. Catch and release is the standard now. Democratic elected judges and prosecutors (2018 & 2020) have undermined the criminal courts. Murder, robbery, car jacking and assaults are up across the board in Houston, Texas. This does not have to happen.
Stop the Border Crisis - The Democrat "Open Border Policy" is all about future votes for the Democratic party. It worked for them in California, and they're hope is that it works for them nationally. Our existing laws must be enforced. Under Democratic leadership we are in "Crisis Mode" at the border. The National Guard is needed to control our border until we can finish the wall, defend Texans actions in court, secure the rule of law and stop the infiltration of millions of illegal immigrants. The Biden administration is providing transportation, including air fare to send thousands of people (no vaccination required) who cross the border illegally to various locations all across the United States. And the ones that walk in unchecked are many times bringing drugs (fentanyl), human trafficking, and terrorists. It's all about future votes for Democrats, and bringing in cheap labor and taking away jobs from American citizens.
Support our Police - Houston is not far behind the liberal cities like Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland, when it comes to the insane idea of defunding the police. We must stop this type of crazy liberal ideology from ever being implemented here and support our police. Democrats cut 20 million from the Harris County Constables rollover funds. This was their way of defunding our police.
Replace Classroom Poison with Informed Honest Patriotism - Enforce the ban on "critical race theory" in schools, and teach civics and history courses that are accurate and tell the truth about America and it's government. Stop teaching radical views on gender and sexuality to vulnerable school kids. Continue to fight transgender "Drag Queen Story Time" in public libraries where drag queens (men dressed to look like women) read to toddlers. Critical race theory establishes one group of classmates as the oppressed, and one group as the oppressors. The intention is to undermine the foundations of this country, focus on hate, and not focus on the great accomplishments that have been made.
Election Integrity - Democrats with the help of the main stream media are lying about "voter suppression" and trying to Federalize (take control away from the states) the voting system by inferring that the existing system is racist. However, historical numbers turned out to vote in the last presidential election. Voter suppression is a Democrat lie, it's a racial scam. Minority voters are not being suppressed.
Stop fraud and wasteful spending - per the Secret Service, 100 billion has been lost in taxpayer monies to Pandemic Fraud. And in addition, over 65 billion in taxpayer dollars wasted in unnecessary government programs in 2020 alone. The national debt is at 30 trillion. Elon Musk recently tweeted "True national debt, including unfunded entitlements, is at least $60 trillion - roughly three time the size of the entire US economy. Something has got to give".
Acknowledge religious foundations in the establishment of our government - This country was established on religious principles. From the Mayflower Compact to the Declaration of Independence, there was religious influence in the belief that "the laws of nature and nature's God" (as articulated in the Declaration of Independence) would govern America.
Let parents choose- where to find the best education for their children, whether it be public, private, faith based or home education. Let the funding follow the student. We should have tax credits and exemptions for education and choice within the public school system.
Cut and Eliminate Property Taxes - Home ownership is becoming harder and harder to achieve for many Texans because of outrageous property tax increases. Texas has one of the highest tax rates in the nation.
Stop Censorship of Conservative views. - Liberal views are not censored, so why are conservative views silenced? Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile shut down the Republican party's presidential campaign ability to send text messages in the days leading up to the 2020 election. Google prevented the presidential campaign from using Gmail. Millions of dollars were lost in campaign donations. "Big Tech" is controlling the narrative and not allowing the opposing views to be presented, especially at critical points during elections.
Stop Hate - People should not be hated or condemned because of the color of their skin or because their occupation is in law enforcement, or because of their religious beliefs.

DEMOCRAT ELECTED JUDGES, COMMISSIONERS, AND POLITICIANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING STATISTICS

On Friday, March 11, 2022 Texas Rangers and the Harris County District Attorney raided the office of Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, seizing computers, telephones and other items. One month later Hidalgo's chief of staff Alex Triantaphyllis, policy director Wallis Nader, and former policy aide Aaron Dunn were indicted on charges of misuse of official information and tampering with a government record. The indictments were made for their roles in a "rigged bid" for a $10.9 million contract for Community Outreach that Hidalgo awarded to Elevate Strategies LLC, a firm owned by Felicity Pereyra, who is also tied to the Democratic National Committee. Selected over the higher-scoring University of Texas Health Science Center, Pereyra's firm had no background in the medical field, no apparent employees, and was operating out of an apartment in Montrose.
In October of 2021, instead of funding our police by hiring more officers, Hidalgo and the Harris County Commissioners Court unanimously approved spending $50 million to fight crime through planting trees, improving sidewalks and adding streetlights in distressed neighborhoods.
Other plans they have approved include spending $25 million for Criminal Justice Intervention programs such as a $6 million Gun Violence Intervention program and $5 million for a Holistic Alternative Responder Team. Programs modeled after crime failing cities such as Chicago, Washington DC, and Baltimore. If they haven't worked there, why would we think they will miraculously work here?
One must wonder how these contracts are being awarded especially after knowing of the indictment charges being levied on Hidalgo's personnel.
Either vote the local Democrat party out of office in November or accept the wasteful "wealth building of friends" crime programs and allow murders, assaults, robbery and kidnappings to continue at record pace.
