TEXAS – The antidote for GOVERNOR PERRY – GLASS!

I’m not a Republican.  I’m not a Democrat.  I’m not a Libertarian.  I’m not an “independent” (I have a job, because I’m a slave, therefore I’m not an Independent)

I have heard this lady speak at the FT Worth convention.  I have read her website.  I’m VERY impressed with her.  I would have been equally happy with Debra Medina, but the Republican party has SHUNNED her.  Why?  Because she dared to defy them.  She filed suit to hold them to their ethos and she was summarily dismissed.  They were not giving her equal time for debate and they basically told her to shut up and sit down.  That is NOT who I want representing me.  So, I’m NOTHING.  I VOTE only the way that I feel I can in GOOD conscience.

Here is some of the things I’ve dug up about her

She is a far cry from Perry and I can’t even imagine the lies that the people of NY received from Bloomberg.

WHO AM I AND WHY AM I RUNNING?

I am Katherine Youngblood Glass, a Houston lawyer who has worked in the liberty movement for 30 years.  I want to be the next governor of Texas because America and Texas are at a pivotal crossroads.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
Our liberty and economic well-being will be lost if we do not act swiftly to maintain our sovereignty.  I am the only person running who appears to appreciate this danger, much less have a plan to resist it and the will to do so.

I believe in American exceptionalism.  America is exceptional because we believe in freedom.  Our country was founded on it, and our Constitution guarantees it.  And, the most exceptional part of America is TEXAS!  No other place on earth has our unique history and culture of liberty.

Our freedom is under assault like never before, with the most critical attacks coming from our out-of-control federal government.  The recent federal takeover of our health care is just the most recent and — to date — most dangerous act of aggression on our individual sovereignty and our Texas state sovereignty.

We have suffered a long train of abuses — absurd and unconstitutional EPA regulations on our citizens and businesses, equally unconstitutional attacks on our individual right to keep and bear arms, interference with our schools and other institutions that lead to higher taxes.  And the usurpations on the horizon not only by our federal government but the United
Nations  such as the Law of the Sea and Small Arms Disarmament treaties are, if possible, even more alarming.

We must fight for our rights as individuals and as a State and indeed for America itself.  For, if America fails, where can we run to and live in freedom? This is freedom’s last stand.

We cannot fail.  We must not fail.  We will not fail.

Texas must lead this fight.  We must be a beacon to other states, to America, and to the world to show them the way back to liberty.  We must be a fortress for freedom.  Through aggressive use of nullification and interposition, we must reclaim our Ninth and Tenth Amendment sovereignty by rejecting the unconstitutional laws passed by, and powers usurped by, our federal government and international bodies.

As realists, we know that we face many serious challenges.  But our belief in the indomitable spirit of the individual makes us optimistic that we can solve any problem if we can make our own decisions about the problems that confront us.

Winston Churchill described four stages of a fight for the right: 1) you can easily win without cost, 2) victory is sure and not too costly, 3) the odds are against you and the costs huge, and 4) there is no chance of victory but it is better to perish than live as slaves.  As I see it, our fight is between the second and third stages.

So, let’s get started.

Tea Party activism shows great discontent, says gubernatorial candidate Kathie Glass:

SAN ANTONIO — Voters have heard plenty about Republican Rick Perry and Democrat Bill White in the Texas governor’s race. But two women are also on the ballot.

Green Party candidate Deb Shafto and Libertarian Kathie Glass are also contenders.

Three of the candidates will take part in a gubernatorial debate next week in Houston. The focus of the debate is on education. Governor Rick Perry is the only one not participating.

KENS 5’s Deborah Knapp talks about the dynamics of the gubernatorial race with Libertarian candidate Kathie Glass.

    A vote for Glass is equal to a vote for Perry.

    Ed Darrell:
    Can you please explain. I found vast differences, so I’m curious to see what you mean. Thanks

  3. Ed Darrell says:

    Glass has no chance to win. In the close election we appear to be facing, every vote for Glass means Bill White will be one less vote closer to defeating Perry.

    If you’re concerned with moving Perry out of his substitute, $10,000/month temporary Governor’s Mansion, you need to vote for Bill White. If you’re happy with Rick Perry and want to send a message to Glass, vote for Glass.

  4. txlady706 says:

    Ed Darrell:
    That is what these parties want you to do.
    They are in it together. They are ALL globalists.
    Bill White is a Democrat. The Democrats will Make him do their bidding. Instead of casting a vote for White, take a look at what his voting record has been in the past. I don’t like it. He’s a socialist by his VOTES. Perry is a crook too. I would have voted for Medina, but now I’m not voting Democrat for sure. The Democrats have put all their BACKING into Globalist and anti American agendas. If White has the backing of their party, then he is their puppet. All the pretty words in the world won’t help him, even if he means them. I may not agree with everything in the Republican mantra and I believe that they have made deals with the Globalists too, but they have shown themselves, of late, to be less against the American people. I’m not voting for either party. I’m voting with the person. Sorry, I don’t buy the if you vote for this one then you are taking votes away. Because, with my vote, it’s either, I vote for Glass this time or I don’t vote. White is a good talker, but he has a history of TALK and nothing more. We will have to agree to disagree on this one. Sorry.

  6. Ed Darrell says:

    If you think the Democratic party has any sort of discipline device to make Bill White “do their bidding,” you don’t know Democrats, and you sure don’t know Bill White. I’ve watched is public service career for more than 30 years — he’s a good man who does what he genuinely thinks is best for the nation. Usually, he’s right.

    Houston prospered under White’s leadership. When he took the mayor’s job, Houston’s downtown was abandoned and rotting, and jobs were fleeing the city. Today Houston stands as a model for how a big city can clean itself up and become prosperous again.

    Texas needs that kind of leadership. Glass has never led such a large entity, and has no comparable chance at leadership, and certainly no similar track record.

    Every vote for Glass is vote to keep Rick Perry in office. That’s why Perry’s group funded the third-party efforts of the Greens, and why they applaud Glass’s campaign.

  7. Ed Darrell says:

    “is” should be “his”

  8. txlady706 says:

    Ed Darrell:
    I don’t believe any Democrat. I don’t believe any Republican. Bill Glass has not held a position similar to the governor position either. In the end, if he has a D behind his name he will have to conform to what the D’s or R’s tell them. So, far, the R’s have not been as bad, although the LIBERAL ones have been bad, indeed. I’m not voting for Bill. Not until the Democrats start talking about giving people BACK power or become something other than EVERYTHING that I have seen come from them. Sorry. Can’t even LOOK at a DEM. I look very carefully at the R’s and I believe that I am more like the rest of the country. Perry is not a good R. Thats why I won’t vote for him, but I can’t vote for a guy who aligns himself with the deprecation of the Dems today. Sorry. Can’t do it. They will drag him through the mud if he’s a decent guy. If he’s that decent then he should seek another party.

  9. Ed Darrell says:

    Katherine Glass said in an interview played today on KERA FM in Dallas that she thinks Texas should “nullify” a few federal laws.

    Rick Perry with the ignorance turned up to 11, no?

  10. txlady706 says:

    Ed Darrell:
    I have heard her speak at the FT Worth Tea party and I agree with the ones that she is talking about. Real Estate taxes going away would benefit everyone, especially kids and schools. No more tying down school choice to the real estate that you occupy. There are a number of other issues also that she is looking to address and I agree with the ones that she is looking at.

  11. Ed Darrell says:

    Real estate taxes are state, not federal. She was talking about pure racist stuff, nullifying federal laws.

    She probably hasn’t heard: We fought a war over that issue. Nullification lost. The Bill of Rights applies against all governments.

    But why in the world would she want to eliminate the Bill of Rights in Texas anyway?

    And what would delude people into thinking that’s “libertarian,” or smart?

  12. txlady706 says:

    Ed:
    You lost me at racist.

  13. Ed Darrell says:

    “Nullification” is a code word for “let’s keep slavery.” Look up the Nullification Crisis, John C. Calhoun, Andrew Jackson, the Compromise of 1820, the Compromise of 1850, etc.

    Ever hear of Santayana?

    • txlady706 says:

      You may not be a SLAVE right now, but for all intents and purposes, you are a SERF.
      Or at least, I KNOW, that I am. Look up the definition of a serf and you will see that WE are AT LEAST that. To be honest we are even worse off than that. However, we are not slaves. Not yet. When they restrict our ability to MOVE, then we will become slaves, in truth.

  14. Ed Darrell says:

    You should read von Mises’s book, The Road to Serfdom, sometime. You’re not even close to the brink of serfdom.

    I suppose you miss the less fine point: Nullification was one method to preserve racism, and other stupid ideas from those who wished to preserve slavery. It was not at all what Madison nor any other founder intended in the Constitution. We fought the Civil War to get rid of the idea once and for all, and the 14th Amendment stamped out any remaining arguments in its favor.

    Economic arguments, even good ones by von Mises, don’t justify racism, nor complete ignorance of our nation’s history and Constitution.
