    OK, thanks. I looked at both of their sites. Bradly is endorsed by the Texas Home School Coalition and Gun Owners of America. Sounds like my kind of guy. Ashley says nothing on her site that would make me think that she is more pro liberty than Bradley.

    *Norman received six times as many votes in his State Senate campaign than Meyer's congressional campaign
    *Norman has the support of Stockman
    *Norman is an army veteran

    Reasons to vote against Meyer:
    *Meyer ran an atrocious write-in campaign in 2010, receiving only 28 votes
    *Meyer raised only $100 in 2012.
    *Meyer received less than 4% of the vote in 2012
    *Meyer endorsed Stockman's establishment opponent, Stephen Takach, in the 2012 runoff

    Her position on the debt ceiling and the Amash Amendment not enough? Honestly, folks, not everyone is going to be a fire breathing 'End the fed,' spout liberty 24/7 type of politician, not even Rand is like that. Anymore, anyway. You're looking for perfection in politicians. Plus, pray tell how keeping Mac Thornberry in office is any better? It's an ad, not a positions ad. If you can't distinguish between her and Thornberry who gets special interest funding given his stance on national defense, seems you haven't paid attention. Then again, can't focus on every candidate. They can't all be gems.

    I have a whole website full of people that I have been able to find public and/or website statements to justify these positions. A portion of them are legitimate contenders.

    I don't buy that we should have to guess their positions and hope for the best. I'm also mostly optimistic with people (i.e. I don't assume everyone is lying), so I'm not the hardest person to convince in the room.

    Though no one said anything about guessing positions and hoping for the best. That could go universal for...any aspiring politician ever where they say one thing, get into office and do something completely contrary. Everyone's reasons for whomever they support are their own. And if you care to explain how keeping Thornberry in his current seat is the better alternative, we're all ears.

    I will not defend Thornberry. The guy is terrible. Not my point. I would just like a reason to believe that Elaine Hays would be any different.

    Edit: If that reason exists, I would be happy to cheer her on.

    I'll ask again: her positions on the debt ceiling fiasco and government surveillance versus Thornberry's not convincing enough for you? If not, then oh well.

    Thornberry is a horrible promoter of the state of endless war and the police state. The prospect of him losing is enough for me to support Hays. But she hasn't defined her positions well enough to get any money from me.

    I was unable to find anything 4th Amendment related about him. I skip foreign policy for State candidates while vetting them, but I search for concrete positions on privacy and the like. If you know something I missed, I would be glad to make the switch

    Dadgum Jurgs!

    I could have sworn I had given you this link at least twice! here is an excerpt:
    http://libertycandidates.com/2012/05...tate-house-tx/

    Libertycandidatest.com: 2. What limits, if any, should be placed on the U.S. government’s ability to search its citizens without a warrant?

    T.J Fabby: "Ever heard of the 4th Amendment? They don’t have the authority to search citizens without a warrant."

    There ya' go Jurgs, for the record, T.J's campaign has helped all the north/central Texas liberty campaigns. He was a delegate (hint' hint, nudge nudge) He is friends with Eby, King, and yes, your girl Chen. As a matter of fact, I think they all look up to him, he is the only one of them that ran in 2010.

    The dude is 110% one of us. There ya' go

    I'm actually just about to go vote today (early voting). I'm just researching some of my local (county) races.
    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?

    From her CFL survey:

    13. Will you support legislation that would prevent the indefinite detention of American citizens and would ensure full Fifth Amendment rights to due process? YES

    15. Will you oppose federal power grabs like roving wiretaps and warrantless searches and oppose Patriot Act renewal that includes such items? YES

    16. Will you support efforts to end the NSA’s unconstitutional domestic spying program? YES

    17. Will you oppose any legislation that requires states and citizens to participate in a National Identification program, including mandatory E-Verify? YES

    18. Will you support keeping our Internet free from government control and intrusion, including opposing power grabs such as SOPA, CISPA, or any other bill that mandates more government intervention in the Internet? YES

    She seems to be more of a fellow traveller than a proper liberty candidate.
