Translation: If you have private insurance, you’ll be forced into socialized health care If you immigrate to the US legally, you’ll be cut in line by those who don’t If you work hard and pay for college, you’ll be paying the debt of others That’s socialism, not “solidarity”

Great initiative by Governor Abbott. Human trafficking is a scourge, and victims often don’t even realize they’ve been manipulated until it’s too late.

Too often, victims of human trafficking are pulled into a vicious cycle of crime.

That’s why TX is announcing an initiative to help survivors apply for clemency with the opportunity to receive a full pardon.

We are empowering survivors so they may find a second chance at life.

“The whole point of the measures [from  @Kevin McCarthy] is to ward off socialism by doing things that can reduce carbon emissions without requiring wholesale government control of the economy.” Exactly. We can (a) sensibly tackle the issue or (b) let Dems implement dangerous policy.

Recent Gallup poll: 53% of Americans would NOT vote for a socialist. You sure about that whole socialism agenda thing? Maybe people aren’t fans of enormous taxes that buy them more government. Worst trade-off imaginable, actually.

Barr should ask Democrats and pundits to put their unserious, hysterical resignation demands in writing, and then...

The strongest argument for socialism is that it sounds good. The strongest argument against socialism is that it doesn't work. But those who live by words will always have a soft spot in their hearts for socialism because it sounds so good.

We really calling someone running on a campaign of more govt-run health care, lax immigration enforcement, & decriminalizing possession of all narcotics a “moderate”? Enough with “Pete the moderate.” Running two steps to the right of a socialist does not put you in the middle.

Is the moderate path to the Democratic nomination too crowded? On FOX News Sunday, Mayor Pete Buttigieg reacts to this and explains how he plans to stand out. #FNS #FoxNews

 #SundayThoughts “Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.” -St. John Paul II P.S. I explain this quote in great detail in my new book, Fortitude.

The Senate voted to limit the President’s powers against Iran this week. This vote was based on faulty assumptions and shallow reasoning, and is a win for the Iranian regime’s propaganda arm.

Um, nobody in Texas says that. Ever. Translation: “somebody told me that lots of people in ‘fly-over country’ have animals. Let me try to say something folksy about animals so the yokels will think I can relate....”

Mike Bloomberg: "Now if I were from Texas, I might say Donald Trump is scared as a cat at the dog pound. But since I'm from New York, I put it this way. We're scaring the living hell out of him, and we're just starting right now."

Imagine thinking that the government is corrupt, inept, inefficient, institutionally racist, sexist, and fascistic... Then campaigning (and voting) to expand its size, power and influence over you, whilst giving it a complete monopoly on firearms and what words you can say. 🤡

Then why didn’t you vote “YES” for the Green New Deal when it came to the Senate Floor? Maybe because it’s not a plan. Or a good deal. Or even “Green.” It’s a 3rd grade science project that isn’t based in science or engineering. Care about reducing emissions?  #NewEnergyFrontier

This is blatant disinformation. This isn’t even Democrat “spin,” it’s just false. Dems know the budget doesn’t touch Social Security for seniors at all. It reforms Disability Insurance (much needed). This dishonesty is what prevents any adult discussions about fixing SS.

🚨🚨🚨Breaking: Mnuchin admits Trump's budget cuts your earned benefits in Social Security. "Slowing the rate of increase" is Washington-speak for cutting benefits and breaking the Social Security and Medicare guarantee.

My message to Washington Democrats: The President did his job by releasing a budget. Now it's your turn to step up to the plate. Watch below ⬇️

 #BeingLiberalMeans (at least these days)buying votes with false promises, under the pretense of moral superiority. It is the well-intentioned doctrine of “compassion” that unfortunately and inevitably results in the deeply immoral and incompassionate doctrine of socialism.

It will alienate swing voters because they know banning fracking: - actually increases emissions - will cost tens of thousands of jobs Virtue signaling doesn’t result in good policy, not surprisingly.

My Democrat opponents sure seem to love Beto, and his “take your guns, defund your churches, and tear down border walls” message. He campaigns with them here in Houston regularly. As it turns out, these aren’t popular ideas in Texas.

Confrims that  @Beto O'Rourke is a distraction & hurts dems in TX races. After Democrats’ big loss in Texas House race, is Beto O’Rourke a campaign liability or an asset for his party? https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2020/02/07/after-big-democratic-texas-state-house-loss-is-b...

At first this seems like a joke. You’re thinking: there’s no way that 44 members of Congress would sign on to such a radical open-borders plan. But you’d be wrong. This proposal is real, and it has real support from the House Democrats.

Texas is adding doctors at a record pace. The doctor to patient ratio is at a 10-year high. This means better access to healthcare for Texans. Also I signed a law allowing rural hospitals to use tele-medicine services to have a doctor on call. https://www.kxan.com/news/texas-politics/doctors-set-record-for-texas-physician-to-patient-ratio/

A left-wing extremist drives a van at Republicans and the media barely blinks.  #Antifa routinely sprays people (often journalists) with bear spray and damages property, and they are defended as “heroes.” Political violence has to stop. https://www.kiro7.com/news/trending/van-plows-through-republican-party-voter-registration-tent-narro...

What do you call it when someone takes someone else's money openly by force? Robbery. What do you call it when a politician takes someone else's money in taxes and gives it to someone who is more likely to vote for him? Social Justice.
