"ALL POLITICAL POWER IS INHERENT IN THE PEOPLE, AND ALL FREE GOVERNMENTS ARE FOUNDED ON THEIR AUTHORITY, AND INSTITUTED FOR THEIR BENEFIT."
(Texas Constitution Article 1, Section 2)
Next meeting November 14, 2017
Guest Speaker will be Chris Younts, a Constitutional Conservative that strongly believes in the Constitution that the Framers left us. He will be speaking on Article 1 Section 7 of the Constitution, in reference to the phrase “the power of the purse”. He will also speak on Article 3 Section 2, concerning the power of Congress to limit SCOTUS jurisdiction and the how/why the Republican Party is still fighting the ACA, abortion, debt and other important issues. Chris is well founded on how government works as well as how the insurance industry works, having been in the insurance business since 1982.
On November 7th, 2017, Texans will vote on seven proposed amendments to the state’s constitution. Here is a breakdown of the proposals based on the following criteria:
1.) IS IT CONSTITUTIONAL? (Does it support the constitutional republic?)
2.) IS THERE A NEED? (Do ALL the People have a need for and benefit from the proposed government intervention?)
3.) IS IT AFFORDABLE? (Can the People afford it? Is the cost equal and uniform?)

American Heritage–From Colonial Settlement to the Current Day
On July 4, 1776, America—acting under the authority of “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”—declared its independence from Great Britain. The new nation, founded on the principle that “all Men are created equal,” eventually grew to become the most prosperous and powerful nation in the world. This course will consider the history of America from the colonial era to the present, including major challenges to the Founders’ principles.
KrisAnne Hall is an attorney and former prosecutor, fired after teaching the Constitution to TEA Party groups – she would not sacrifice liberty for a paycheck. She is a disabled veteran of the US Army, a Russian linguist, a mother, pastor’s wife and a patriot. She now travels the country and teaches the Constitution and the history that gave us our founding documents. KrisAnne Hall does not just teach the Constitution, she lays the foundations that show how reliable and relevant our founding documents are today. She presents the “genealogy” of the Constitution – the 700 year history and five foundational documents that are the very roots of American Liberty.
FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY INDEX
The Fiscal Responsibility Index is a measurement of how lawmakers perform on size and role of government issues. Texans for Fiscal Responsibility uses exemplar votes on core budget and free enterprise issues that demonstrate legislators’ governing philosophy.
The public — including lawmakers — are notified in advance of TFR’s position on the issues to be rated, and prior to votes taken on the floor.
