Texan moves to run in the 12th district of Texas under the Occupy movement.

Yes I just filed for the 12th district of Texas for US Rep.. I will be battling and old republican hag {Kay Granger more about her later}.. Anyway Im slightly different then Dr Paul in that I am running as an economic socialist . In that I have an emergency job plan to employ 14 million people opening up the treasury .....And begin massive public works projects {High speed rail . Employment farm subsidies , and free day care . {Hey I gotta be a little different then the good Doc } .... Anyway Im also running as a strong civil libertarian that will oppose HR 432 {just like Dr Paul did} the anti - occupy bill and of course NDAA..... I will move to end drug wars and foriegn war occupation....Now Im very excited to run ...But I have even more good news ... Due to the late primary battle that took place in Texas it is still not to late to file and run in Texas ....I am running as an independent ... But all Texans can still file in Austin till friday .... Can still run as a Republican , Democrat , Libertarian or Green. .. Its free to file and all you need is 500 signatures to run... Now Im asking all Texas patriots for the cause to step up and file to run ... We need senators , congressmen{ except the 12th} and city councilmen.Remember this is what Dr Paul would want us to do. It still not to late by this by this friday........ Thanks very much and I love you all.

Well, good luck -

at least you are out there doing something. Getting Congress
out of the hands of big corporations and their lobbyists is just
as necessary as winning the presidency.

Not sure the "economic socialist" tag is going to go over well,
or even if it is accurately describing what you are proposing?

You might want to check into the Populist movement, if you
haven't those guys were the serious anti-corporatism movement
of the late 19th century.

Some of the negatives here are a bit tongue in cheek, but others
not - which doesn't seem all that productive. Is there some sort of
ideological purity test that you have to pass to be here?

Half of the senators that voted against the NDAA were Democrats -
should libertarians not cooperate with them? For those criticizing -
do you think the incumbent sounds *better* for liberty than your fellow
DP'er? More like dramatically worse, looks to me.

As far as never transferring wealth - huge transfers of wealth have
been occurring since the Reagan administration - some goes to the
poor, of course, but mainly it has been looting the middle class to
support the wealthy. A lot of that wealth has been outright stolen.
Should we never try to get any of that back and put it to productive
uses in our communities?

One thing I don't get with a lot of libertarians is the antipathy to any
kind of public works programs. I'm not a big fan of the New Deal, but
the CCC and WPA programs did a lot of positive work. People are still
using infrastructure, from sidewalks to ski resorts (look up Timberline
Lodge, for example) that were built by the WPA.

The Golden Gate Bridge might be a better paradigm for how to do
infrastructure projects as it was a local project - anyone want to
claim *that* was a failure?


Do run run, Ron! (and lancealotlink)

Yes now I agree maybe the word socialist

Is way to much of a dirty word.This is why Im taking this to my friends first at the daily paul.I will not use it again thanks Blue.

Hey Lance...

We love you too man.

Note, however, that people probably do not want congressmen who do not know the difference between "too" and "to." (When you learn that difference, please check your original post as well.) Then go get the old hag.

Leave it to us to keep the fruits of our labor out of your socialist thieving hands. May everyone renew their resolve in this regard. It is the only way.

Free daycare and work

Free daycare and work programs are Socialist, whether you use the word or not. And most Texas voters can figure that out on their own.

Hey Tx are you running, then shutup.

Your rhetoric sounds very

Your rhetoric sounds very congressional....

Wow now that's way cool. If

Wow now that's way cool. If you're not running then you have no right to an opinion. You will would fit in nicely.

Awe Lance we love you

But you can't halve measure Life, liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Any socialism is Juxtaposed to the Republic, they are oil and water my friend. In the end one MUST supersede the other, they can't not coexist is perpetuity. A Monarchy is just a socialism with a King instead of a Premier, just as a Democracy without justice is a Socialism by corporate oligarchs.
We get all complicated when talking " forms" but in truth there are but two " forms" of government. A Republic, by the people, of the people, for the people and a Socialism by the few, of the few, for the few, Republics fail because people become selfish and mind it not so they lose it. They lose it to socialists who abuse their people until they are overthrown. The common denominator is MANKIND, we are the issue, we are the problem, and we not good at controlling our selfish natures once we get wealth and power.
I wish you well Lance, I also wish I lived in Texas and were your opponent. I rather think we'd make a lively campaign season betwixt us to say the least.
Earnestly consider my words, which do you favor Freedom or control?

Ok lance, I am going to have to move to Texas and run against

you as a Freedom Party guy.

Meaning liberty, freedom and never ever spreading the wealth.

Gotta keep you honest, but good luck anyway :-)

Economic Socialist is Texas,

Economic Socialist in Texas, at least you don't have to worry about winning. Free daycare??? Does that mean you're going to be paying for it out of your own funds? You certainly sound like you'll fit in well with the status quo, using words like "free" associated with government benefits paid out of the pockets of the people.

An economic socialist

is just a socialist. We've already got that - it's called the Federal Reserve System, bailout economics, and stimulus bill myopia. We don't need more of the same.

I'll pass.

The treasury you want to open up and employ 14 million people with is empty.

Jobs don't come from government - they come from the people and the government getting he hell out of the way.

Less government = more jobs

More government = less freedom

"It does not take a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

--Samuel Adams

Economic Socialist?

Not gonna happen, esp if you name yourself as such. No Tea Party will think twice to vote for you, and lots of them are already grumbling about the NDAA, but you threaten pocketbooks...not a chance



Would love to see you run as a Green, as your economics side with them. Would great to have more Ron Paul supporters in the Party (I'll join back again after the Primary).

I've been working to do a little different approach to the "economic socialist" idea, by making any government program self funded, and running the federal government an corporate taxes and tariffs.

Either way, you sound like a Green to me. The Texas green party has some good activists. I could help organize a Money Bomb for you during the summer/fall. (I've been working on this trend with the Green Party).


Jack Wagner

Yes I thought about green.

But I did not know what the requirements were . Ether way I would not expect a green to run In the 12th so it might be easy to form an alliance I would love to discuss this further. I will be speaking at occupy Fort Worth this saturday where Ill announce my candidancy. Thank you.

WTF are you doing here then. :)

You're against one form of oppression while supporting another. That makes you just like all of the other status quo.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Economic socialist!

Yeah, I'd say that's "different" than Ron Paul.
Radically different.

Like, a whole different universe.

why not

just wear sweater vests , that'd be different. EH !

LOve the R3volution

Play the game well

Congress should be ripe for the picking. If there ever was a time us common folk could run, it would be now. I wish you luck and trust you will do the right things if elected. I will not try to pick apart your platform, you have been here a long time. Best of luck to you, and thanks for running!!!! Keep up the great work!!!!

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Thanks Tog I love my friends at the DP

I know I have a different point of view then some ,but I guess that what makes us true individuals is our differences.

Dont you get it? Treasury

Dont you get it? Treasury money either comes from taxes or inflation...both of which are theft, plain and simple...spend ANY taxpayer money on any program and you are stealing....article 1 section 9... You as a congressman would have no right to spend taxpayer money on any such program...as such you have no right to my vote. Obama v2.0

Ok Ok I understand Im not gonna get everybody s but

Please hear me out first . Instead of trying to control interest rates with inflation . I would control it with a price freeze. Nixon did this in the seventies and it worked out great until the fed got ahold of the project and closed it down.And if you are worried about your nestegg you can always invest in gold.

The wage and price controls Nixon implemented were made

"necessary" when he closed the foreign exchange gold window - which is what prompted Ron Paul to get into politics.

Back further than that, it was WWII wage controls that led businesses to offer third party health insurance plans to attract employees - one of the main reasons the health payment system is so screwed up today.

Just who are the central planning geniuses who know what the correct wages and prices are for the American economy?

I'm gonna just say no to more wage and price controls.


I thought nixon implemented price before ending the gold standard.

Price controls create massive

Price controls create massive shortages and discourage new production. The low prices make it impossible for producers to make the necessary investments to increase production. It also drives the least efficient producers out of business which leads to MORE UNEMPLOYMENT. New production is needed to keep the price down, and it provides more employment. Your plan makes no sense. Please Read:
Economics in One Lesson By Henry Hazlitt and then try again.

lancealotlink you can fool those dems, but you don't fool me

I can already predict that you will talk exactly opposite of Rand Paul (the fake Neo-Conservative)...

...but you (the fake Socialist dem) will vote with us, Ron and Rand every single time.

I know your game guy, its Rand's game, and I like it.

Tell me I'm wrong. Or don't, I support you.

You are one of us regardless of what you tell everyone else.


Rand Paul is not a fake Neo-conservative

he voted for sanctions... that's not fake that's fact.

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
Jimi Hendrix

He also voted on the anti occupy wall street bill

And Ron Paul did NOT I would never vote on HR 432 or NDAA . So Im not the only one with alot of xxplanin to do.

Its fake when your vote has no weight. Its the game.

Rand Paul is a master at it.

If his vote had weight he would have voted against sanctions.

I know my US Senator. Rand is MY US Senator and he does not even live in my state.



"If my vote would make a difference I would vote but if not I'll vote along with everyone else."

You put your name on it you own it and you'll answer for it. That's the difference between Ron an Rand. Ron knows that in the end he'll have to answer to a higher authority for all his actions. And if there ever comes a time when he's not subordinate to that higher authority as reflected by his actions then he looses the support of that higher authority. He will loose my support as well.

Of course Im one of yall

all the way arnt you in Texas ? Why dont you run appeal. You can still run appeal if you differ with my platform I would like to hear yours.I told I have to be a little diffeerent then Dr P.
