Simpson Calls for Special Session to End Marriage Licensing in Texas

201505CapitolPortraits-7(Longview, TX) On Monday, House member and Texas State Senate candidate David Simpson announced that he is calling on Governor Abbott to immediately call a special session of the 84th Legislature in light of the Supreme Court’s lawless and unconstitutional redefinition of marriage.

Says Simpson, “In light of the Supreme Court’s actions, I believe that the best way to protect marriage is to divorce marriage from government. I am asking the governor to recall the legislature so that legislation may be immediately considered to remove state and local officials from the process of issuing marriage licenses. In its place, the process of issuing a certificate of marriage will be performed by any willing clergy member consistent with their conscience and in respect for our culture and our heritage. For those who do not wish to have a religious ceremony, any authorized notary may approve a certificate.”

Jeremy Blosser on ‘Teamwork’ – Words of Wisdom on Facebook

Half of you are reacting by saying you’re done with a party that won’t hold anyone accountable no matter what, half are saying we* need to replace some more SREC members. This is what divided we fall looks like. I realize getting people on the same page tactically is a pipe dream, let alone keeping them there. But until critical mass agrees to do one thing until it’s achieved, we are “doing the same thing over and over (being divided or constantly switching on tactics) and expecting different results” as much as the mushy ones are.

End NSA Spying Defeat the Patriot Act - Rand

On Wednesday, GOP Presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took to the floor of the Senate for 10 hours and 30 minutes to filibuster the renewal of Section 215 of the Patriot Act. The controversial section, which is used by the National Security Agency to justify its bulk collection of Americans’ data, is set to expire at the end of the month.

Paul held the floor from 1:18 p.m. to 11:49 p.m. on Wednesday. Politico noted that by extending his filibuster to the brink of Thursday, Paul prevented Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) from filing cloture on a bill that would extend the Patriot Act.

According to the Washington Times, McConnell had said on Tuesday that he would schedule a vote this week on a rewrite of the Patriot Act, “setting up a final showdown on the NSA’s bulk-data programs and putting pressure on civil liberties advocates to muster the 60 votes needed to end the snooping,” in the hopes that the senators would end up having to accept an extension of the current Patriot Act.

Dax Ewbank for Oklahoma Governor Banner

Liberty is the Issue.

 

It is really that simple. We need a Governor that will govern the government, so that it will LEAVE YOU ALONE! Somehow that role has been reversed and governors and governments are micro-managing peaceful people as if they have forgotten where their authority came from in the first place!

A Dax Ewbank administration would be run by two simple principles:

Do everything you have agreed to do.

Do not encroach on other people or their property.
