The meeting was a good one and allowed us to vet Kaleb Sims, a candidate for the U.S. House, CD17, to replace Bill Flores. To sum up the discussion; Bill Flores failed to do what he said he would when voted in to replace Chet Edwards and Kaleb Sims will do the right thing.

As most conservatives have a lot of pent-up frustration and anger it is no surprise when new candidates stand up to take-on those who have been a part of this feeling of betrayal. Has Bill Flores failed? It would depend on your perspective I guess. Visit GovTrack.us to learn more than the news will tell you by seeing which bills are up for a vote.
Those who follow the news and the bills voted on and by whom will have differences of opinion as to why. It would be safe to say once involved in Washington politics, things change. If the view is; conservatives got three out of five goals and the democrats are more upset than conservatives, it sounds like a good compromise, doesn’t it? I guess it would depend on which three were attained and which two were not. If one gains three houses, and gives up two hotels in a Monopoly game it doesn’t sound so good.
The point is simple. Get involved with your local government and keep your eyes open! There are primary elections coming and it is important to be involved and I don’t mean just vote.
Here in Burleson County, we have our county convention March 19th starting at 9:00 AM, be there!
Yes, the process is long and boring but very important if you want to fix things and not just complain later. Volunteer to be a delegate or alternate then go to the state convention and do it all over again. This is how you get your voice heard.
Below is a video of Kaleb Sims; you’ll see him, hear his introduction and the Q&A afterwards.
Before you go vote March 1st, or in the early voting beginning the 16th of February, get to know him, you might want to vote for him. This video is 1:29 but with the time. Remember, politics is time-consuming but making a bad decision lasts longer than the investment of time to know the difference.
