Newly elected Reps. Kenneth Sheets, R-Dallas (right) and David Simpson , R-Longview, today endorsed the speakership candidacy of four-term House lawmaker Ken Paxton, R-McKinney.

It brought to four the number of Paxton's GOP colleagues who've publicly pledged to vote for him to replace incumbent Speaker Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, in January. Last week, as colleague Ted Kim posted here , Paxton got the blessing of fellow North Texas Republicans Jodie Laubenberg of Parker and Tan Parker of Flower Mound. And this week, national GOP bigwigs Mike Huckabee and former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey also urged Paxton's elevation as speaker...

Sheets, who knocked off Democrat Allen Vaught, said he wants to get the first vote he casts -- for speaker -- right. "His 'no-nonsense' conservative leadership will provide a solid foundation for the upcoming legislative session," Sheets said, calling Paxton someone who will "fight against the heavy hand of the federal government."

Simpson, who knocked off longtime GOP Rep. Tommy Merritt in the March Republican primary, said it's "no time to waste a conservative mandate" when the House's 99 Republicans next year can go with Paxton, a more right-leaning leader. "I was not elected to support government as usual -- to go along and get along," Simpson said.

"I'm listening to my district," he said.

I challenge you to enter into the great struggle of history, and make sure that your days on this earth count for something truly important. It is this struggle that defines our contribution to this world. Freedom is the greatest gift that you can give yourself and all of humanity. -- Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr.


"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked: 'Account Overdrawn.'" -- Ayn Rand (1905-1982) Author

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." -- Dr. Adrian Rogers (1913-2005) 1931

"When the socialist economies of Eastern Europe disintegrated, the cause was evident to nearly everyone: the stifling directives of central planning had all but obliterated individual initiative and accountability. The cure was just as obvious: a healthy dose of entrepreneurship and private enterprise."  -- Dr. Lawrence W. Reed (1953-) President of the Foundation for Economic Education
