Debra Medina for Texas Governor

I've been conflicted about who to vote for in the race for Texas Governor. Though I have defended Kay Bailey Hutchison in the past, I'm not real crazy about the job she's done as a Senator. In my opinion she's something of a RINO, pursuing liberal policies when she believes they'll be of benefit to her whether they are good for her constituents or not. The problem is, I've felt much the same way about Rick Perry. I prefer him to Hutchison but he's pretty liberal in his own right. He says a lot of the right words but his actions don't really show him to be someone I'd like to reelect.

This morning the Walton & Johnson radio show introduced me to Debra Medina. I'd never heard of her before but browsing her web site I like the positions she takes on a lot of the issues. If you're looking for a conservative candidate for governor you just might want to check her out.

Thanks for posting this. If you or your readers are interested in more information on Debra there is a volunteer website we have started at

Here is the latest press release calling on Perry and Abbot to reject nationalized health care in Texas.

Debra Medina, a registered nurse and candidate for governor, is taking the lead in defending Texas against the nationalization of healthcare. “This bill devastates freedom and destroys healthcare. Texas must nullify the action by congress and fight for an injunction in the federal courts. I am urging Governor Perry today to call the Texas Legislature into special session. I am encouraging Attorney General Abbot to begin the work necessary to obtain an injunction against the IRS and the 111 other federal agencies empowered in this legislation to further embed Washington D.C. in our lives. These actions are critical to insuring that Texans are free to make our own decisions about healthcare” stated Medina.

As the U.S. Senate takes up HR 3962, the "Affordable Health Care for America Act," Texans must mobilize now as never before! We must not wait, there can be no delay. We must prepare for the eventuality that the U. S. Senate will pass this bill and be ready to immediately defend the sovereignty of the great state of Texas.

The Texas Legislature must act. Please call your state representative and state senator today. Find your district and their number here: Ask them to demand that the governor call a special session to address the nationalization of healthcare; to nullify those actions by Congress that undermine the sovereignty of Texas.

With action by our legislature, Texas can solidify arguments for sovereignty in healthcare and against the bill on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. The federal government has no constitutional authority in healthcare. Texas will care for Texans.

Judge Andrew Napolitano said this weekend, “When Congress takes away our freedoms, they will be gone forever. What will you do to prevent this from happening?”

“Please call your state representative and your state senator today. Please join with TEA Parties, 912 Groups and other freedom minded organizations in your area to hold rallies here in Texas to alert all Texans to the need for a special session,” Medina urged. Together We Texans must exhibit the courage necessary to lead the country. We must staunchly defend our sovereignty; we must fight to insure that Texans remain free to make our own decisions about healthcare without mandates from Washington D.C.

Rip, So glad to have you on board the Medina Campaign. I have known Debra and can vouch for her integrty and humility, while yet being a fighter for what she believes is right...and that to her is the rule of law and protecting and defending our Constitution from enemies without and within. Pease go to the volunteer web site and comment and post your thoughts and suggestions. Then encourage all your family and friends to go there too, to keep up with all that is going on. This is not a fad, this is a movement to restore our Republic and take back Texas!
