But Mr. President, Liberty County is a different place these days. Those days of picking and choosing when you are a Democrat and when you are not are over. The voter has now asked the question “why would I want to vote for anyone in a party that is trying to tax and spend our way out of economic problems when I know we should be doing just the opposite – why would I strengthen the people that are driving this country into bankruptcy?”
The giveaway game that dominates your party’s modus operandi isn't working anymore, and the reason is simple. The national cupboard is bare, Mr. President. It's not only bare; you have used it as collateral for a loan that our children and grandchildren will have to repay - the kitchen, the house, the car, the foundation, and the neighborhood have all been used as collateral as your party has used their control of the Senate, the House, and the White House to spend like no generation before this one could imagine. Our government is being kept alive right now on printing press money, and we all know all of your promises will be funded by taking more money out of our paychecks.
Your fellow Democrats here are doing the same thing. They have doubled the county’s budget in four years. They have even admitted they intend on spending $3 million out of our reserves. After years of increasing their on salaries and having little regard for the fact that they are spending our money, they must be inspired by what your party is doing nationally and they seem to have adopted your “sky is the limit” spending philosophy.
This letter may bring great tears of joy to you as you hear of how faithful your people have been to your economic theories, but I write to make a much different point. You may take great pride in how slick they Democratic officeholders have been as they have blamed the appraisal district for our tax bills going up, but I am not writing to congratulate you.
I am writing to tell you to kiss one more part of this state off. I am writing because the people here are going to send you a message by sending everyone of your people home. Mr. President, don’t mess with Texas and keep your tax and spend hands off of Liberty County!
When the little cauldron of lawyers who want to find favor in Liberty County’s 75th District Court convene in their meeting places they must get a big laugh when we average people don’t use the terminology they studied in law school. But when we reported on the special deal that Judge C.T.”Rusty” Hight gave sexual predator, Jose Moore we used the term “judicial clemency” - we weren't really concerned about the lawyers because we really liked that term. We realize they do not teach it in law school but we see no reason to change it since it is our belief they do not teach much of what Hight does in his courtroom.
