Have a Freedom-Filled Labor Day!
Hello Fellow LPTexans,
With our blazing temperatures, not everyone is sad to see summer go. It may not be sweater weather yet, but bring on the pumpkin spice everything! We are all winding down from the hectic year with just a few things to report, but stay till the end for memes and events!Read more

Get Out There And Live
While the temperatures in August are hotter than Satan's armpit, we hope you are packing these last few weeks of freedom with as much fun as you can. According to Marcus Tullius Cicero, freedom is the power to live as one wishes... so get out there and live.
If you haven't heard the big news yet, the LPTexas chair Whitney Bilyeu is now the chair for the National Libertarian Party. Her calm, focused leadership has driven LPTexas to the top of the state affiliates, and she will be leading our National party into greatness as well. Congratulations Whitney, we are all so proud of you!
Lots of great news is packed in this newsletter, and be sure to read all the way to the end for some laughs.Read more

Celebrate Independence Day, Everyday
“You’d think we’d be freer,” I said…
Over the weekend, a fellow Libertarian (from Louisiana) was praising LPTexas and commenting about how Texas (the state and its people) has always been regarded as a beacon of liberty. The spirit of Texas is one of rebellion, revolution, individualism, self-reliance, prosperity, and freedom. So…you’d think we’d be freer.
Independence Day each year is merely a reminder of all we have yet to do. We can’t take days off. We have to work, and fight, everyday toward liberty for all people all the time.
Just as election day is Day 0 for those of us doing the work of a political party, July 4th signifies the start of another round of battles for liberty in Texas. It is a time for banding together to promote the principles that unite us. It is a time for standing side-by-side against the authoritarian principles that unite our opposition. It is a time for recruiting Libertarian candidates to amplify the Libertarian voice.
I do hope our staff, volunteers, officers, executive committee members, and county affiliate leaders enjoyed some well-deserved R&R this past weekend. I am excited to see whose fuses were lit, what sparks were ignited, and how much freer we can get.

Let's Dive Into Summer!
Its time to trade in our boots for sandals, crack a cold one and relax by the pool! Right? Not so fast!

Check out what we've been up to and what we have going on, and if you happen to be poolside with an umbrella drink while reading this... good for you!

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

Lobbying Tells Texas to Stop Robbing Us
Well, the lifted mask mandate came and went, and guess what? Cases have been dropping daily. Turns out people don't need to be forced into determining what is best for their safety.
So now we turn to the big issues happening in the Texas Statehouse. We are being faced with numerous ballot access and gun control laws that we need to fight. There are also property tax and cannabis bills that we need to support. How do we do that? Lobbying!
Citizen lobbying is one of the strongest avenues we have to positively affect our freedoms, and all it requires is an investment of your time and gas money to get to the capital.
Check out the funny, informative report on last month's lobbying day. It will give you an idea of what lobbying is like for the first time and tips to make the most of your visit. Read about it here.
Because of that great success, LPTexas is placing renewed focus and vigor behind the lobbying faction of our party. Join us! Our next lobbying day on April 15th, tax day! RSVP here.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

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
