    "The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie down the second with chains of the constitution so the second will not become legalized versions of the first." - Thomas Jefferson.

    I share that with you because the person I'm writing about espouses on his website to BE a Jeffersonian-Republican. This is a direct quote from his website, "As a fiscally conservative 'Jeffersonian Republican,' Congressman John Culberson is committed to Thomas Jefferson’s vision of limited government, individual liberty, and states’ rights. Simply put, John Culberson believes in 'Letting Texans Run Texas.'

    All of that sounds really good, doesn't it? Well, friends, as the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. Let's look at some of the voting action on the part of our fair Congressman Culberson.
