The Headline is misleading and should read "a few congressmen". I'm very glad to read Louie Gohmerts name is NOT on this list of those who would sell our state (and nation) down the financial river of ruin to stay in office. Ron Paul (from Texas) is our conservative voice in the Republican party and shoud be supported up to the convention in August as he has stated that he will introduce those conservative planks to the party platform that the Liberal republicans (Romney) do not represent.

This should be a clear message to voters of how far from Texas principles SOME of our Congressmen have become. Ron Paul represents Texas conservatism, Romney is a Mass. Liberal, creator of Obamacare, a flip-flopping stand for nothing politician. Ron Paul has a long record of integrity voting for smaller govt. real spending cuts. IfI thought Louie Gohmert supported Romney then I wouln't vote for Louie. Ron Paul is known as the grandfather of the TEA Party for his record of voting against spending
