Let's Taco Bout More Freedom In Tejas!
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
We are coming to the end of a very busy legislative session, and our army of volunteers have been working hard. Just like the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War, the Libertarians of Texas are fighting big government aggression, and we are winning!Read more
Word From The Chair: Whitney Bilyeu
I am excited to welcome 2021 and put 2020 behind us. We faced some hardships this past year, but we did not surrender and had some solid wins, too. Our state convention was a major success and no one could have pivoted again and again to pull off such a feat the way our LPTexas convention, credentials, platform, and rules committees did. It is an honor to serve with those folks.Read more

Turn Texas Into A Pot O' Gold!
Top o' the mornin', LPTexans.
Thank you to all the Libertarians who helped their fellow man during the February 2021 Blizzard which left cold Texans in the dark and without water or basic necessities. #LeftInTheCold and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott went viral... but not in a good way.
He has tried redeeming himself by lifting the Texas mask mandate and opening the capacity of all businesses and facilities to 100%. We finally do not have to be forced to care for others with government intervention, and our freedoms have been restored on this issue. 15 states have made this decision so far and we are glad to join them.
May the leprechauns be near you to spread luck along your way, and may all the Irish angels smile upon you this St. Patrick's Day.Read more
Kasie Dailey published Citizen Lobbying At The Texas State Capitol in News 2021-03-30 07:35:23 -0500
There are almost 7000 bills in the current 87th Texas legislative session that are being considered within a 6 month time frame. The capitol is working around the clock passing laws daily, and if we aren’t there to tell them to pause and think about it, they won’t.
Visiting the capitol and lobbying is an important experience to understand the size and scope of what Libertarians are up against when it comes to making a difference. Texas Libertarians had a volunteer citizen lobbying day in March 2021 to try and convince the representatives to vote against certain liberty infringing bills like HB1812.
Joe Burnes attended the event, and it was his first time to lobby. Joe is a long time LPTexas activist, SLEC member, and also works with the Development Department, and he came away from that day fired up to make a difference. Joe said, “Nothing is more clear about how small our party is than when you go to the Texas State Capitol. I felt like a sheep in a room full of wolves. But they are still people, and they can be persuaded, and I found that lobbying on behalf of LPTexas does make a difference.”
This article breaks down the fundamentals of citizen lobbying in Texas to help anyone walk in prepared.
