JoAnn Fleming is the Executive Director of Grassroots America – We the People PAC, one of the largest and most influential constitutional conservative statewide activist groups in Texas. A self-retired county commissioner and a leader in the constitutional conservative movement for twenty-five years, Fleming was named by Capitol Inside as one of the ten most coveted endorsements in GOP primary campaigns in the Lone Star State. She was the three-term Chair of the Texas Legislature’s Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee. She is now a strong supporter and advisor to the new Texas House Freedom Caucus, which replaced the Tea Party Caucus. JoAnn was appointed by Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick to chair his Grassroots Advisory Board for his first legislative session as Lt. Governor. She is an original member of the #CruzCrew and campaigned with Sen. Cruz when he was polling at 1% in the polls in his 2012 race for the U.S. Senate. She played a key role in his come-from-behind victory. Cruz appointed JoAnn as his Texas Tea Party Chair for the 2016 Cruz for President Campaign and was a surrogate spokesman.
In announcing the PAC’s endorsement of Dr. Alma Arredondo-Lynch for US House District 23, Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming said, “When reviewing Congressman Hurd’s voting record, it is immediately clear that change is necessary and urgent in representation for CD 23. Incumbent Will Hurd’s 54% “F” rating by Heritage Action and his 28% “F” rating by Conservative Review prove that Hurd is the wrong person for this job! Texans need a strong constitutional conservative fighting for them. That’s why we strongly urge support for Dr. Alma Arredondo-Lynch. She will be a bright light of truth shining in the darkness of Washington, D.C. You can count on Dr. Alma to tirelessly and enthusiastically work to help drain The DC Swamp!”

Lone Star Liberty
Lone Star Liberty – Our group is made up of everyday Americans who understand the value of the U.S. Constitution. Seeing the rampant corruption that has infested our government, We the People have realized that the time for talk and hoping the government will fix the problem is over. Government is the problem, and is in need of massive reform. From the individual states, to Washington DC, the government machine of America has grown so large that it cannot be held accountable, and acts as if it is above the very laws written.
Among our goals is the removal of elected officials who disregard the Constitution, engage in insider trading, crony capitalism, benefit unduly from their position, and attempt to make themselves exempt from laws that the American people are held to.
We demand that America be returned to We the People, so that there is real hope for the future, real economic growth, and that we can all sleep at night knowing our freedoms are to being protected by those in government who were voted in to represent us.
San Antonio Tea Party
San Antonio Tea Party – CORE PRINCIPLES
We support personal freedom so all Americans can live life the way they want as long as it does not harm others, or infringe on another’s rights.
We support economic freedom: a growing economy with reduced tax rates and reduced government spending so we all have a chance to earn more money and businesses can hire more people.
We support a debt-free future because it is only fair and right to pay the debt we have incurred so our children and grandchildren are not stuck with our bills.
We the People …
… that God grants to all people certain inalienable rights,
… that people in turn grant to governments their consent to be governed, and
… that government’s role is defined by the people to preserve those rights.
We the People …
… the concept of American Exceptionalism, that the United States of America is
a “city upon a hill,” a beacon of good at home and abroad.
We the People …
