    He spent around 400,000 for Ron I think with his Santa Rita Pac.

    William Tell pretty much covered all the State House Races. Not all on his list are "us" IE: Matt Krause. But are big allies and are worth keeping around and on our side.

    Attorney General - Ken Paxton.

    RR-Commissioner - Wayne Christian. He's not Liberty but he's the best in that Race.

    Senator? No Clue, lots of our people down here are supporting Dewayne Stovall but he's got no chance. Other's are supporting Stockman, but I'm extremely weary of him. So I'm just gonna stay out of that one.

    Lt. Gov? Patterson for me. Other's like Patrick, but he's an ass and has actively worked against us to sabotage us at every point. He was at Tampa with a Camera Laughing at the Paulers walking out.

    Comptroller? Debra Medina. No Question.

    Ag Commissioner? Sid Miller

    Land Commissioner? David Watts. Anyone but another Bush.

    Supreme Court Races
    Joe Pool Place 6
    Sharon McCalley place 8
    Robert Talton Chief Justice

    Court Of Criminal Appeals (Texas's other Supreme Court)
    Kevin Yeary
    David Newell

    State Senate
    SD-10 Konni Burton
    SD-16 Don Huffines

    Congressional Districts
    CD- 21 Matt McCall
    CD- 6 Frank Kuchar
    CD-13 Elaine Hays
    CD- 23 Robert Lowry
    CD-32 Katrina Pierson

    Because of the runoff system, the main thing is voting against Cornyn. Dwayne Stovall, and Steve Stockman are both good replacements.

    He may be the best candidate, I have not looked in to the race. I will. But he was my State Representative, and I was glad to see him gone, due to his being a Rick Perry pal. I will check out the others, but I am sure you have good reason to say that.

    George Lavender is an ally of Debra Medina on abolishing property taxes, I don't know how good he is on other issues. But that is one of my biggest ones, so I think I would support him if I was in House District 1


    I don't know anything about his opponent, besides what is on his site. If anyone knows more about the race than me, please weigh in.

    Please put some thought into the State Board of Education if a race is on your ballot. The SBOE is a mess of religious anti-thought. I will be voting for Rita Ashley and against incumbent David Bradley.



    Or, if you would rather read: http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/fea...001.blake.html

    ... In late 2007, the English language arts writing teams, made up mostly of teachers and curriculum planners, turned in the drafts they had been laboring over for more than two years. The ultraconservatives argued that they were too light on basics like grammar and too heavy on reading comprehension and critical thinking. “This critical-thinking stuff is gobbledygook,” grumbled David Bradley, an insurance salesman with no college degree, who often acts as the faction’s enforcer. ...
    ~~~

    Why are folks pimping Wayne Christian for RR Commissioner? What are his stances with respect to fracking and property rights? I asked on another (politically balanced) forum about RR Commissioner candidates in general and got this response:
    Wayne Christian is the asshole former rep from District 10 who got the Lege to restrict the Open Beaches Act so that he could rebuild his beach house after Ike (after removing the bodies from the trees on the property, of course). Fuck him.
    From what I can gather, there really isn't a sure bet candidate in this race, but Boyuls might be worth a look over Christian.
    I compiled a "brief" history of events since October 2008 that are defining the global currency war and the role that gold is playing:

    Tin Foil Hats, Economic Reality and the Total Perspective Vortex

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    James White, incumbent HD 19. As far as I know he has a good record, he opposes Property Taxes. I believe he attended Philip Eby's moneybomb.

    Matt Beebe is not perfect, but he needs to win his race against House Speaker Joe Straus in HD 121. Beebe ran in 2012 as well, so he already has some solid support. Straus must go.

    Wayne Christian stood strong against the Trans Texas Corridor land grab, so I have been planning on voting for him. Boyuls seems standard establishment to me, If you give me a good reason to vote for him, I might reconsider.

    Please clarify, are you saying that Rita Ashley is a liberty candidate? or are you just opposed to Bradley because of his stance on Darwinism or something? Gail Lowe (who is mentioned in that article) has been an ally of the liberty movement. But Lowe was defeated in her primary last time by a big gov liberal.

    He seems good, Toth has endorsed him for what it is worth. I was not sure if he or Jason Millsaps was better. Now Jason has dropped out and endorsed Saego. Will Metcalf did not have issues on his site until recently. If I was in the district I would talk to Ted Saego and Will Metcalf, and try get a feel of which is better. Looking at both of their websites might help you decide, Metcalf finally added an issues section: http://www.tedseago.com/issues/ http://www.willmetcalf.com/issues

    I don't know anything more* about Rita Ashley than what's posted on her website. But what I know of David Bradley is enough to know that Rita has got to be a monumental improvement.

    *Rita primaried Bradley last election cycle and lost.

    Is there even a pie in the sky possibility of Ron running for governor or is that definitely not happening?

    Assuming the almost certain case that he's not, is there any one close to his caliber running?

    I don't live in TX so I have no personal stake but I'd love to see a real liberty governor get elected some place or another.

    Not happening, the filing deadline was December 9th. Tom Pauken dropped out, and Greg Abbott will almost certainly win. I don't trust Abbott.
