Grant RostigforSD21
January 10, 2012
Dear Fellow Conservative,

Democrats feel Texas Senate District 21 is a safe district for them.

We need a *conservative Republican challenger* to the Laredo based incumbent Democrat currently not properly representing us in Senate District 21!

My name is Grant Rostig. I'm the only one working to get on the Republican primary ballot (as far as we know). It will be a major upset if we win, but by running we will be able to get our ideas and values into the local media, the debates, and other public events. This campaign will build for future successes.

Will you help me get out the word on these issues?

Small Government

Constitutional Government

Limiting Federal Power (10th Amendment)

Private Property Rights

Low Taxes

Business Friendly

Secure our Borders

Keep our Communities Safe

Right of Self Defense (2nd Amendment)

In 2006 I ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Congress in Texas' 25th District. In 2008, I attended the GOP state convention in Houston as an alternate delegate, and also the 2008 national convention in St. Paul, MN as a guest. In 2010, I ran for Caldwell County Commissioner. Like this SD-21 run, those races were also uphill battles for a Republican.

Having having worked for major corporations and operated businesses as both a computer programmer and as a doctor of chiropractic, I offer strong leadership skill to our run for the Senate. To find out more, look me up on facebook. I am 52, married for 22 years with no children, but we do keep animals and a vegetable garden.

I need your help to get on the ballot by gathering high quality signatures from registered voters.

~ Details on Gathering Signatures ~

Here is a form 2-3F PDF to gather signatures:

It is best to print page one on legal sized paper so that people have enough space to write their information clearly. If necessary, you can select the "Shrink to Fit" option when you print it on letter size paper. Your local library should be able to print a legal sized PDF and make legal sized copies.

There are important instructions on page 2 of the PDF so print one copy of page two to read.

Please be sure to fill in (print in black or blue ink) all the English blanks with the following data! The Spanish blanks are optional unless you are reading the petition to people in Spanish.

1) Grant E. Rostig

2) State Senator District 21

3) Republican

Also, be sure to put your name (print in black or blue ink) on the top right of the form. The person who actually gets the signatures must put own their name on a their own forms.

I always read the whole statement to the person out loud to comply with the law. Basically they can't vote in the Democrat primary if they sign this petition (or attend any other third party convention).

Be sure the Notary fills in all the blanks on the bottom. You only need to notarize page 1, even if you got more than one page filled with signatures. The date of birth is important to help find the voter in the database, when all else fails.

Please send the original notarized forms to me by January 24 2012, the sooner the better! You probably should keep a photocopy for yourself.

Here is my address:

Grant Rostig Campaign

100 Reata Ranch Rd.

Lockhart, TX 78644

To help me plan the effort of getting 500 plus signatures, I would appreciate progress reports on how many signatures you will get and when you will send the completed forms.

As a backup plan my campaign is also asking for political contributions to pay the $1200 filing fee in case I don't get the signatures we need. Corporations cannot contribute.

Thanks for any help you can offer in getting signatures or contributions. Don't hesitate to call me with comments or questions. With your help we can give the Democrat incumbent a run for her money and advocate conservative ideas to the voters.

Best Wishes

Grant Rostig

  • In the 122 years that Democrats were the majority party in Texas (1872-1994), only 2 Hispanics held statewide elected office.
  • In just 8 years of Republican majority, 3 Hispanics have already held statewide elected office.
  • It took Democrats 114 years to elect a single Hispanic to statewide office. The Democrat establishment later tried to defeat him because he was too conservative
  • In 2001, Anglo Democrat men comprised only 20% of all Texas House members, but were named to 36% of all chairmanships by the Anglo Democrat Speaker. Hispanics were shortchanged because their support was taken for granted by the Democrat elite.
  • In 1999, Republican Lt. Governor Rick Perry established the first ever standing Committee on Border Affairs to address needs along the Texas-Mexico border.
  • In 1998, Republican Governor George W. Bush created the Office of Border Initiatives, which facilitates trade and investment opportunities for Texas communities and companies along the border.
  • Under the administrations of Republican Governors George W. Bush and Rick Perry, state agencies have invested more resources in the 32-county border region than under Democrat leaders.
  • Agency Democrats in 1991 Republicans in 2000 GOP % Increase
    Department of Health $77 million $1.53 billion 1,887%
    Housing and Community Affairs $20.4 million $107.4 million 426%
    Department of Transportation $129.5 million $475.2 million 267%
    Institutions of Higher Learning $292 million $691 million 137%

    Absolutely, Liberal progressive Democrats for the most part are dishonest spin masters. They are liars to the people they pretend to care about. They depend on the unfortunate and less informed to get elected into office. Then do everything they can to keep them in what Democrats believe to be their place. It's just to bad the minorities cannot seem to figure it out.

    Did you know...

  • The Republican Party was formed in 1854 after the Democrats voted to protect and to extend slavery.
  • The 1860 Democrat platform declared its support for the Supreme Court's infamous Dred Scott decision.
  • The 13th Amendment abolishing slavery passed Congress with the support of every voting Republican member but with the support of only 23% of the Democrat members
  • When the 14th Amendment passed, not even one Democrat in Congress voted for civil rights for African-Americans
  • The Republican Party of Texas emerged in Houston on July 4, 1867, with 150 African-Americans and 20 Anglos. The same year, the Ku Klux Klan actively began to attack African-Americans and Republicans.
  • Two of the first three statewide leaders of the Republican Party of Texas were African-Americans.
  • The first 42 African-Americans elected to the Texas Legislature were all Republicans.
  • From 1865-1869, Texas Democrats passed "Black Codes" to prohibit African-Americans from voting, holding office, and serving on juries. They also refused to acknowledge Juneteenth and even drafted a new State constitution requiring the State Representatives and Senators be only "of the white race."
  • When the Republicans gained the Texas Legislature in 1869, they established a system of free public schools to educate all the children of the State (something Democrats had refused to do) and started a Texas State Militia and a Texas State Police in which African-Americans proudly served.
  • When Democrats recaptured Texas government in 1872, Democrat Governor Richard Coke's election was described as "the restoration of white supremacy and Democratic rule."
  • Texas Democrats engaged in bizarre gerrymandering specifically to prevent African-American members from being re-elected to the Legislature. When African-American Republican legislator Robert L. Smith departed in 1897, no African-American was elected in Texas until 1966, when the U.S. Supreme Court ordered Texas Democrats to redraw districts.
  • Texas Democrats enacted a poll tax that reduced African-American voter turnout in Texas from 100,000 to only 5,000, and passed white-only primary laws as well as Jim Crow segregation laws.
  • As victims of Democrat racism and segregation, African-Americans were loyal to the Republican Party they started. In fact, Republican President Herbert Hoover received more than three-fourths of the African-American vote over his Democratic challenger Franklin D. Roosevelt.
  • Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the first president to appoint an African-American to an executive position on the White House staff.
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 passed under Democrat President Lyndon Johnson were based on language proposed by Republicans in 1960. And even though they controlled both Houses of Congress by wide margins, Democrats were unable to garner enough Democrat support to pass the bills. Without the strong support of the Republicans in Congress at the time, the civil rights acts of the 1960s would not have become law.
  • Three African-Americans have presided over Republican National Conventions but not one African-American has ever presided over a Democrat National Convention; and only one African-American has ever made it as high as Vice-Chair-not even co-chair-of a Democratic National Convention.
  • Of the four African-Americans who have been U.S. Senators, three were Republicans.
  • Since 1994, five minority citizens have held Statewide office in Texas as Republicans, but since 1872, only four as Democrats.
  • African Americans made their most significant political and civil rights progress while affiliated with the Republican Party, and only in recent decades have African-Americans become a principle constituency of the Democrat Party.
  • As demonstrated both by its platform and its voting record, the Democrat Party opposes school prayer, educational choice and charitable choice but supports same-sex marriages and partial-birth abortions-all positions opposite to those held by most African-Americans.

    laselva for a good example of racism look to the white house. The bammie makes statements almost on a daily basis that are truly racist. To imply that any certain race or group should vote or support him based on their race and his is racism. To imply that any certain race should support his enticing use of entitlements as he does with African Americans and Latinos is racism. To imply that Conservatism or liberalism has anything to do with skin color is, I believe a racist way of viewing people.
