I support the position of smaller federal and state governments that are  fiscally responsible, support personal and community liberty, freedom of self and community expression. I feel Texas has a climate of economic growth and personal liberty that can only be enhanced by Libertarian principles.  Have become more committed to the NAP as a rule to live and govern by.  My personal motto for government involvement is borrowed from a pnemonic about radiation exposure... ALARA  (as low as reasonably achievable).

    Vault Project

    $5,100.46 raised
    GOAL: $4,000.00

    The Libertarian Party of Texas, is starting work on a voter history database which will empower campaigns and activists with the tools needed in order to advance freedom in the state of Texas. The VAULT (Voter Analysis Utilization & Libertarians of Texas) is an online database which allows LPTexas to organize information about voters, voter activities, and establishes the foundation for a full-scale warehouse of data and tools to be used by liberty volunteers to support the LPTexas goal which is “nothing more nor less than a world set free in our lifetime.”[1]  The VAULT makes campaigns more efficient and effective and allows campaigns and activists to track their projects and successes.

    In order to make this happen, we need to raise money to purchase the initial voter history dataset from the Texas Secretary of State. Our goal is $4000 within the next few weeks.  As soon as we get the funding, we’ll be ready to rock and roll.  We might even have block-walking list capabilities by September if we get the data purchased in July.

    Access to the voter data will be free to LPTexas County Executives, Precinct Executives, and Candidates.
