Larry Kilgore for TX Governor 2010
Thank you for 225,897 votes in the 2008 GOP Primary!
Texas Secession - Washington continues to ignore the 10th amendment. Until Texas independence, Washington's mandates on transportation, education, housing, health careand family issues will continue. Texas GOP Platform page 8 and 20:"We support state sovereignty reserved under the Tenth Amendment and oppose mandates beyond the scope of federal authority. We support downsizing of the federal government in order to re-establish states' rights."
Economy - Washington requires Texans to pay for their corporate welfare bailout schemes. The debt is equal to $175,000 per person. For every dollar sent to Washington from Texans, we get back 94%; while New Mexico gets back 203%. Texas GOP Platform page 23:"Corporate Welfare/Business Subsidies – We oppose all corporate welfare that supports continued inefficient businesses. We encourage our government to allow a free market economy to prevail both domestically and internationally."
National Security, Immigration and Trade Agreements are inseparably linked - Washington refuses to protect Texas from illegal foreign invaders. Many Texans are upset about NAFTA, WTO, SPP and other international agreements that Washington has gotten us into. North American Union is coming unless we act. Texas GOP Platformpage 23:"We strongly oppose and call on Federal and State officials to place high priority on the withdrawal of the United States from the Security and Prosperity Partnership and the formation of the North American Union."
Education - Washington & Austin usurps the authority of local school districts. While spending $75B to control local education. Texas GOP Platform page 8 and 16: "We call for abolition of the U. S. Department of Education and prohibition of transfer of any of its functions to any other agency. Abolish the School Property tax. District superintendents and their employees should be made solely accountable to their locally elected boards."
Health and Human Services - The $53B spending by this Texas government agency drives up health care cost for the rest of us. Texas GOP Platform page 8 and 15: "Reduce the indigent healthcare burden for counties and local government. Free market principles and competition shall be encouraged in health care."
War on Poverty - Since 1965 the U.S. government has spent more than $11 trillion fighting poverty without success. Texas GOP Platform page 15: "Welfare Reform - The current system encourages dependency on government and robs individuals and generations of healthy motivation and self respect."
War on Drugs and Alcohol - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition: "The War on Drugs has cost taxpayers over a trillion dollars, we are approaching 40 million arrests for nonviolent drug offenses." County governments in Texas should determine the drug and alcohol policy not Washington. Texas GOP Platform page 8: "We understand most crime is local, and the states, reserve law enforcement authority under the Tenth Amendment."
Texas Military Forces - Texas Military Forces have be conscripted by Washington to fight undeclared wars. Texans need these volunteers in Texas to protect Texas. TexasGOP Platform page 8 and 15: "We charge the President to cancel the state of national emergency and charge Congress to repeal the War Powers Act and end our declared state of emergency. Never deploying the military except against invasion or threat to our vital interests."
Trans Texas Corridor - Rick Perry continues to support the TTC thus ignoring the people of Texas. Criticisms include the high cost, environmental damage and property confiscation. Texas GOP Platform page 23: "We emphatically oppose the Trans-Texas Corridor in any form or manner. We call for full investigation of any public officials authorizing any form of eminent domain for the Trans-Texas Corridor and foreign funding."
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the LORD's: and He is the governor among the nations. – Psalm 22:27&28
