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 www.PaloPintoGold.com).
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...

As you must surely know, it takes money to run a successful political campaign. Now that we are less than 100 days away from the election I have decided to make a deal that no other politician can.
Beginning today, anyone who contributes $25.00 or more will receive as a special "Thank You" a DVD of my most recent feature-length motion picture -- PALO PINTO GOLD. This light-hearted Western stars Roy Clark and Mel Tillis. Among the cameos is none other than Kinky Friedman who portrays the Governor of Texas. How cool is that?
Donations can be made via PayPal or by check -- go to the "Contributions" page on my website at www.NeedToVent.com for more details. And to learn more about this film, I invite you to go to www.PaloPintoGold.com.
Who says they don't make Westerns like they used to?

Travis Irvine is the Libertarian Candidate for Ohio's 12th Congressional District. I met Travis a few months ago and was impressed with his commitment and, just as importantly, his wonderful sense of humor. Besides being a very dedicated candidate, Travis is also a talented filmmaker. Please take a minute or two to click on this link to watch three brief (less than one minute each) videos -- I am positive that you will enjoy them all.

Now that we are approximately 100 days away from November 2nd -- Election Day -- postings will be far more frequent, so please check back often. And if you have any spare time and are interested in helping me make history by becoming the first Libertarian to be elected to the Texas State Legislature, I invite you to give me a call at (210) 860-0110 -- or -- send me an e-mail at Robert@NeedToVote.com.
Hey -- how often can you actually help make history?

This Astronomical Clock is located in Rostock, Germany. It is the oldest witness of time in the world and it ticks in the Marien Kirche.
It goes without saying that this magnificent timepiece has seen a lot over the years. What it has never seen, however, is a Libertarian candidate elected to the Texas State Legislature. As you know, I fully intend to see that history is made. And what better time than right now, with the Lone Star State facing an $18 billion budget deficit.
It has been said that when it comes to fiscal responsibility, just one Libertarian among a governing board is akin to a designated driver in a roomful of drunks. I plan on being your "Designated Driver."
