Recently a few members of the Pearland TEA Party Board had the privilege to hear Rafael Cruz speak. During that speech he highlighted that the bible actually tells man how to choose a leader based on four things; “able men, who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain.”
For months the Board had been vetting out the entrants into the U.S. Senate race for the Great State of Texas and after the filing deadline it became glaringly clear that there was only one candidate that we in good faith could support and endorse, Dwayne Stovall. He advocates several policies that we clearly support. First and foremost he is in favor of returning to the concept of Texas First. The 17th Amendment to the Constitution in essence ended Federalism or any opportunity the States had to veto Federal authority. It changed the election of U.S. Senators to a popular vote as opposed to elected by each States legislature. He supports returning the Federal government back to a limited government and allowing the states to have more control over the Federal Government.
He also, by his very presence in the race, highlights that the Federal Government was intended to be a Citizen Legislature. It was not to be dominated by Lawyers and a Permanent political class. He has been very good at educating everyone he meets on how the Constitution was intended to operate.
Based on our questions and conversations he has met all of the qualifications laid out in the bible and more. Based on a unanimous vote the entire board enthusiastically endorses Dwayne Stovall for United States Senator.
