. I am Pro Constitution and will Stand up Against these Obamanties. My website ( JoeCottenAG.com) defines what Obamanties are. What my education from Texas Tech in 1973 (Major–Business & Minor– AG) has taught me is by preserving our Texas Values we will be able to make the differences. Having a AGRI background and education is important. My experience in the family farming ,ranching, Cotten’s Barbeque in Robstown and over three decades of Financials has shown me that Hardwork, Knowledge, and a good Attitude will help you be successful in life( see the video on the website about this ). My Promise to YOU is hardwork, knowledge, good attitude AND I will stand up and fight against these Obamanites (which are socialist termites) that are eating away at TexasValues. We will be able to make differences.
