    I would love to debate any of the CV pseudo-conservatives to a debate to discuss the merits of limited government, fiscal conservatism and the meticulous notes of Madison at the founding. We can discuss when I met late Justice Scalia and discussed the merits of Texas v. Johnson or Lawrence v. Texas. Tammy Nakamura are you in? It would be great for the community to see us debate theory and policy and not just hyperbole. It’s time for reason to resonate and not just emotion. Take back social media and bring back ideas grounded in the founding of our amazing country.

    Vanessa, you may be able to fool a shrinking number of people that you are a conservative, but y]that group is shrinking. Guess it takes one to know one, and you are definitely not one.

    As far as debating this goes, Nelson is right, you couldn’t even bother to show up at the Colleyville REPUBLICAN candidate forum last year. We see how you constantly te[ry to put false narratives into posts on Facebook constantly. In fact your one of the worst abusers of this childish tactic.

    Your type “conservative” is why we have a house speaker that’s as corrupt as any on history.
