Welcome to the Texas Legislature...

During my campaign I visited all four counties comprising Texas House District 73 multiple times. As a result, I met literally hundreds of people along the way, and I must say that the majority embraced my Campaign Slogan: "I'm mad as Hell... and I bet you are, too!" even if they didn't vote for me.

Of all the things to be legitimately mad about, the citizens of the Texas Hill Country showed overwhelming indignation to one activity in particular: Voting Fraud in the Texas Legislature as reported by the Austin CBS affiliate, KEYE-TV. For those of you who have not seen this video, please take a few minutes to watch. (Be advised, the actions taken by your State Representatives are more than reprehensible.)

Had I been elected I would have been the loudest whistle-blower imaginable. Any State Representative who I saw voting on behalf of an absent colleague would have been called out publicly -- loud and clear. Make no mistake, given the opportunity I would have personally contacted every media outlet available to me on every occasion this contemptible practice occurred.

Believe me, the Foghorn at Matagorda Bay isn't as loud as I would have been. My sincere wish is that someone speaks up this time around.

"Thou shalt not steal...even by majority vote."

More of the Same? Vote NO! Vote NOwotny!

It is time for another sea of blue to begin sprouting up in the Texas Hill Country, and while political yard signs are nowhere as beautiful as bluebonnets, they are a necessity for anyone running a serious campaign.

Now I am sure some of you are asking, "Why would I want this cluttering up my front yard?"

I think there are many reasons, but here's just one to consider:

Think of these little "beauties" as an investment. Yes, an investment. When I become the first Libertarian elected to the Texas Legislature, these yard signs could command a nice price on eBay. Hey, I've seen "I Like Ike" buttons going for a few bucks, and he's old history.

"A yard sign in my front yard?" As Kinky Friedman would say, "Why the Hell not?"

For those of you living within Texas House District 73, please contact me and I will see that a yard sign is delivered to you quickly. Thanks!

VOTE FOR less government and MORE BEER!!

(Kathie Glass, Libertarian Candidate for Governor, with yours truly...)

Talk about a Campaign Slogan!

...Better than "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too!"

...Better than "I Like Ike"

...And a Hell of a lot better than "Change We Can Believe In"

Need we say more?

Between now and November 2nd (Election Day) I will be sending a "Letter To The Editor" to all of the area newspapers on a weekly basis. Posted below is the first in this series -- it has already been printed by The Bulverde Standard.

Dear Editor:

Groucho Marx once said, "These are my principles. And if you don't like them, I have others."

Leave it to Groucho to tell it like it is. Today's professional politicians say and do whatever they think will get them elected, and then reelected and reelected again. Forget the will of the constituency -- it takes money to get reelected over and over again. And forget campaign promises -- if more money can be raised changing positions on an issue, so be it. Heck, a fella's gotta do what a fella's gotta do...

That's why I am for Term Limits. I believe that by mandating Term Limits for every elected office in the State of Texas, not to mention the Federal Government and Local Government as well, we can make a significant improvement to regaining honest, accountable representation. If elected, I will introduce legislation to mandate Term Limits. This will be met with enormous opposition by the fat cats who thrive within the current system, but it is a start, and if we show enough resolve and perseverance, we can succeed.

Think of me as "The Terminator."

One of the more memorable lines in my latest feature-length motion picture -- PALO PINTO GOLD -- is a veteran Texas Ranger's admonishment to his young sidekick that whenever you come across one of the bad guys you either "cuff 'em, club 'em or shoot 'em."

Having signed the "Code Of Fair Campaign Practices" with the Texas Ethics Commission, I am limited to what I can do during my campaign to be elected Texas State Representative, District 73. No cuffin', clubin' or shootin' is allowed -- but I can do some mighty hard campaignin' and that's what I aim to do. So here's an offer I hope you can't refuse -- please click on the link below to see how you can get a "Special Edition -- Director's Cut" DVD of PALO PINTO GOLD as a personal "thank you" from me.

Who needs another refrigerator magnet or ball point pen or bumper sticker -- a good, old-fashioned Western movie, "just like they used to make them," is much better.

Popcorn anyone?

Mark Rutherford is the Libertarian Party National Vice Chair. Mark recently announced his personal list of the TOP 75 Libertarian Candidates running for election nationwide in 2010. I am very pleased to report that my campaign is on this prestigious list.

Besides identifying his Top 75 from a national perspective, Mark also addressed his assessment of how each state is performing.

Here's what Mark wrote about Texas:

As Libertarian Party National Vice Chair - I hear a lot about campaigns across the nation. A lot of good reports come from Texas.

The Texas Libertarian Party has really grown over the last six years, and is running very good candidates, and lots of them.

Here are some candidates and campaigns in Texas in which I'm hearing some good things:

1. John Jay Meyers 32 US House 214-824-4150
2. David Smith 2 US House 832-329-5313
3. Robert Nowotny for State Rep 73 830-228-5950
4. Jim Prindle 4 US House www.prindleforcongress 214-909-2311
5. Bruce West 8 US House 281-622-0732
6. Jim Strohm 21 US House 713-242-8691
7. Jim Stutsman 25 US House 512-797-3905
8. Ed Mishou 27 US House 956-541-7091

There are 160 Libertarian candidates running for office in Texas -- and to be among the eight chosen by Mark is extremely gratifying.

Of course, none of the recognition I have received over the past month or two would be possible without the tremendous support of a whole lot of people -- family, old friends and a whole bunch of new friends as well. And so I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all they have done and continue to do. Together, we can make history as I become the first Libertarian candidate elected to the Legislature in the Lone Star State!

There will be more "news" posted soon, so please check back frequently.

Far be it from me to declare myself "A Really Cool Candidate" -- but a picture is worth a thousand words...

Yes, this is your intrepid Libertarian candidate enjoying a shot of premium Vodka at the world's first "Ice Bar" in Stockholm, Sweden. Everything in the Ice Bar is made of ice -- the walls, floor, ceiling, even the glasses. The room temperature is kept at a constant 17 degrees Farenheit, but the fur coat they provide as you enter keeps you quite warm -- so does the 80 proof Absolute...

As for me becoming the first Libertarian candidate to be elected to the Texas State Legislature, here are two things everyone should know:

1. Campaign donations have now exceeded $7,500.00 -- a very substantial sum that is the envy of most Libertarian candidates nationwide. I hereby want to thank everyone who has already contributed. Thank you -- thank you very much.

I would also like to encourage those who haven't contributed thus far to please consider doing so. Remember, anyone who donates $25 or more will receive the "Special Edition -- Director's Cut" DVD of PALO PINTO GOLD as a personal thank you. This feature-length, family friendly Western stars Roy Clark and Mel Tillis and features a number of Texas-based celebrities, including Kinky Friedman who plays the Governor of Texas. What a deal!

(Details regarding this movie, the most recent one that I helped produce, can be found at

2. The vacation to Scandinavia constitutes the last break of any kind during my 10-month campaign. The next ninety-four days will have me campaigning full-time throughout the four counties which comprise District 73. You can expect updates far more frequently from now on.

The heat is on...
