A Texan On Cornyn

The following is from a person I shall identify only as a 7th generation

Texan:

“John Cornyn is not well liked by rank and file GOPer’s and its due to his

immigration stance. I’m well enough known that every time I’ve fired off a

fax to Kay Bailey about the issue, I always get a response. Of course

Senator Cornyn gets the same fax, but I’ve yet to get a reply from his

office. As a result, my generous donations to the national Republican

party have stopped. The letters and phone calls come every week and are

ignored.. The Gov, Rick Perry has now taken it upon himself to write

asking if I have abandoned the party. Not with my vote in most cases, but

I’m through with the elites in the GOP. Senator Cornyn will not get my vote.

Kay always will.”

A Tyrannical Minority and Silent Majority

As I noted Monday on the Corner, British journalist James Kirkup has done a great public service in sharing a document that helps explain how the transgender movement, which many privately admit has overreached and is unconvincing, has been so successful so quickly.
