    Normally we don’t respond to people who use fake names, but because we know that many people are also interseted in knowing who will be running for office in the party, here it is:


    First of all, we won’t have any candidates at all until after the various conventions where candidates will be officially nominated.


    We had well over 100 Applications For Nomination submitted, and about 70% of them were submitted yesterday, and many in the last hour of the day. Our Chair and our Ops Director are busy vetting each application to ensure that they are completed correctly. Given that they are volunteers and have other personal commitments like job and school and family, the rest of us should accept the fact that they are human and only have so much time to do so much work.


    The list will be out later today the very moment is is completed to the Chair’s satisfaction that everything is accurate and true.


    Suffice to say – this election season is shaping up to be a great time for LP Texas!

    I live in the Waco area and am wanting to get involved. I have been a long time libertarian and feel we need to bring this country back to the principles of the founders and liberty. I am willing to help candidates run and I would like to run for office myself, pretty much anything I can do to advance the principles of liberty.

    Sorry, the name is andrewssgaj@aol.com. I am just asking if you all have a candidate to oppose Lloyd Doggett, in the 35th District. I remember that you hosted a candidates forum for the May, 2017 local elections; I participated.

    I hope the Libertarian Party will run someone for Lamar Smith,District 21, open position for Congress since he’s not seeking re-election after 30 years.I feel the Libertarian candidate could pick up alot of votes in the general election in November 2018.

    I’d like to know what you are doing in order to obtain wider ballot access and open debates, as well as whether or not you’re working with other third parties to do so.

    Please tell me there is a Libertarian candidate running in 2018 for Governor in the Great State of Texas. I want a strong candidate. Now is the time to strike. REMEMBER tomorrow never comes. If I have no candidate you have succeeded in silencing my voice. MY vote is my voice. No candidate means the Republic and Democrat Party have won. I will fight to get everyone registered to vote but must have a CANDIDATE.

    Please, Please do not silence my voice. MY VOTE IS MY VOICE. Thank you.

    Dear Sir:


    I am writing to request that you help correct House Bill 3921. I do not believe that this legislation was thought through by the people who approved it.


    Based on the 2017 – 2016 population demographics for Texas there are roughly 2.5 million residents in Texas that are 65 or older. This bill assumes that EVERY ONE of them is financially incompetent based on nothing more than their age. It allows persons with no interest in their well-being to withhold access to account-holders’ funds without any recourse, safe guards or due process for the account-holders. There is no process mentioned in the bill for regaining access to their blocked accounts or steps to prevent misuse of the power that has arbitrarily with NO justification required handed over to financial institutions.


    I found the below statements posted on The Texas Attorney General’s website.


    “Right to Dignity and Respect

    An elderly person has the right to be treated with dignity and respect, without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, marital status, or source of payment. This means that the elderly person has the right to:

    • Make his or her own choices about personal affairs, care, benefits, and services, and

    • Be free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

      Right to Manage Financial Affairs

      An elderly person may manage his or her own personal financial affairs, or may authorize another person to do so in writing. The elderly individual may choose the manner in which his or her money is managed by another person, and may choose the least restrictive of methods, such as:

    • a money management program,

    • a representative payee program,

    • a financial power of attorney, or

    • a trust or similar method.

      A person designated to manage an elderly individual’s money must comply with all applicable policies, laws and rules. On request, the designated person shall make available the related financial records and provide an accounting of the money. Designating a person to manage their money does not affect an elderly person’s ability to exercise other rights. However, if an elderly person has a guardian designated by a court, the guardian shall manage the person’s money in accordance with the Probate Code and other applicable laws.

      Elderly people may want help with their finances, but unless they hand control over to another, they have the same right as anyone else to receive, spend, invest, save, or give away their money. In situations where a nursing home, family member or guardian has been granted permission to manage a person’s money, that person still has the right to decide how his or her

      money will be managed, and to receive a full financial accounting.

      Sometimes a family member, “friend,” or nursing home takes control of an elderly person’s money without that person’s permission—often for his or her “own good.” This may be a violation of the person’s rights, and should prompt a call to The Department of Family and Protective Services or a reputable attorney for advice.”




    This bill replaces the above statements with “Any random financial employee knows better than anyone who has reached the age of 65.”


    Please help get the word out to correct this bill and make it clear that House Bill 3921 is completely subject to the existing laws that offer safeguards against stripping protections away from citizens ONLY based on their age. If that is impossible, then this bill should have the age part removed. If it is such a great idea, I am sure that everyone under 65 would also enjoy being protected from themselves.


    Thank you.

    I am running for Congress in the 30th district and would love your support I am not running major party because they have lost their way,and are worried about big anything other than the citizens that elected them.

    I don’t know if I will run against Dan Patrick or Sheila Jackson-Lee. No matter what happens never give up and never give in. A good sense of humor can help get you through the down times. If you have the time and the inclination watch Trump on TV. Now there is a polished (sic) stand up comic. But never,never forget that it IS 5 o’clock somewhere. Peace dudes!!!!!
  • commented 2017-05-10 14:45:13 -0500
    I think it would be a worthwhile effort for the Party to furnish, to its rank and file, it’s official stance on the more notable bills going through the Texas legislature…

    I am going to repeat my feedback as I had problems transmitting it. I hope you received my first commentary because it was a bit more elaborate than this will be. There are a group of dipshits apparently representing the US Federal Government, or agencies thereof, driving around IH 35 in lifted trucks, tinted windows, and blasting mufflers. Throw in a few hundred high powered Ford Mustangs and super charged Dodge Chargers, along with a bunch of little cars with mini putter mufflers, and you have a bunch of low IQ idiots trying to intimidate the masses. It is a mess, and a crying shame. The GAO needs to eliminate funding for this. For those who have not witnessed this then cruise around IH35 Round Rock or Pflugerville. They are all around, and I want to organize with other Libertarians to take names, photos, determine where they live, and see if we can call attention to them via the GAO. Jonathan Dayton, at age 26, and Benjamin Franklin in his eighties both signed our constitution along with a number of other brave men. Our 4th amendment has been destroyed, and if it were not for President Trump and the NRA our second amendment would have been trashed. They are slowly working to do away of the 1st amendment, and censorship of the internet is in full swing. I sure am glad I have remained proficient with my assault rifle and have saved a few bullets. It appears that might be the reminder these misguided individuals need to refresh their memories of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Patrick Henry was noted as saying, Give me liberty of give me death. And the beloved Gadsen flag resonates with the words, “Come and Take It”. Let us go forth and stir up the mix. I will not stand by and see my freedoms taken from me.
