Tom Pauken interview on GOPisForMe, an Hispanic Auxiliary


Tom PaukenWe’ve got lots to talk about…informing the voters is key to ensuring our state thrives.  This interview with Republican Candidate, Tom Pauken, gives an in-depth perspective on many of todays hot issues.  From border security to education, we get into the details of our state’s government and what he believes should happen if elected in 2014.

This is a candid interview with a veteran of the Reagan Administration who serves as Director of the Texas Workforce Commission.  His open, honest responses will resonate with many, in my opinion.  He sees what’s coming for Texas, and he offers some unique, revolutionary yet simple alternatives to accomplish the same goals.

Reducing taxes is a high priority for Pauken, who proposes the elimination of the Emerging Technology Fund, which essentially, according to Pauken, resembles the Solyndra model, where government invests in private business.

Instead, he proposes to shift those funds into an account to deal directly with securing our border.  “Why should we have to count on the federal government to secure our border?” asked Pauken, who added it should be the state’s responsibility to secure its own border.

He’s concerned with school drop-out rates and feels the school system should provide alternate paths for students, suggesting preparation for trade-schools and vocational training.  “We need to create a pathway to jobs,” said Pauken.

Regarding the border, he doesn’t have a specific plan, but feels confident he would assemble the best minds to create a workable plan.  He wants to gather border patrol, federal agents, military experts in technology, and develop a plan that works within the budget.

There’s 34 minutes of interview.  Please take some time and listen to this candidate.  Primaries aren’t too far away…You decide.

Speaker’s Debate

Hispanics Need to VOTE!

If you're a legal, Hispanic citizen and Registered to Vote, please do your duty and cast your vote for a Conservative candidate.

All across the state of Texas, Hispanics are growing tired of the empty promises offered by Democrats. Voters have seen with their own eyes how Democrats dangle the carrot, yet fail to deliver on their promises.

This website is designed to call Hispanics to action via the power of the Vote.

This November 4th, 2014, we need you to stand and deliver your vote. The country our patriotic parents and grandparents fought for, is being dismantled by the Liberal, Progressive Democrats determined to "rebuild America."

I can promise, their version of America is not the utopia they are selling. They want Socialism. They want to destroy our capitalist economic engine, sending us back 100 years, making us equal to other countries around the world.

I for one, will not stand idly, while they remake this country into something unrecognizable. I will do my part, and I hope you will too.

Immigration / Border PLan

Secure the Border

Using all resources at our disposal, Texas should, with or without help from the Federal Government, secure our southern border and reduce the flow of illegal immigration. (80% Secure)

For those already here Illegally

Create a Documentation plan in which we identify those living in America Illegally. We must separate the good from the bad.

Give 4 year period where all those here illegally, can become registered with: Biometrics Testing, Residence verification, employment info, background check, criminal history. All of which are paid for by the applicant.

Applicants to not gain citizenship at this time, rather, they gain legal status and can work, live and pay taxes like everyone else.

Applicants will go to the back of the line when trying to gain permanent status or citizenship. They will not jump ahead of those who followed the law.

Applicants will be assessed a fine of $2,500 per individual, or a Max of $7,500 per family.

After 4 year period of documentation, any person not registered, will be immediately deported if found or discovered.
