Yes I just filed to run for the 12th district of Texas as an independent non partisian candidate just filed the paper work in Austin today . ...All I need is 500 signatures to get on the ballet .... I think you will like my platform... I am an economic socialist who favors opening up the treasury dept. to employee 14 milllion .American citizens through public works projects ..like High Speed rail..Employment farm subsidies and free day care service ...... With high goverment wages..Etc Etc . ............I am also a strong civil libertarian ....who will fight against NDAA and HR347 ... I also would end the drug wars and foriegn troop occupation ... I stand opposed and would Stop a war with Iran.......Now the real reason I wrote this now is that due to the ...fact that Texas set back there primaries in a re-distrcting fight ........It is not to late for any Texan to file and run .... For any position . I. decided to run as an independent candidate.But you can still file to run as a democrat, republican , libertarian . or green. So I am asking for all occupy Texans to go down and file in your distcit as an occupier . Texas might just be able to send a few occupiers to washington to raise some real Texas hell . ...Please It is not to late to file to run .Friday is the last day .... No cost just file and 500 signature ....Please Texans ... lets step up to the plate we need some to run senators congressman { just dont run the 12th} and city councilsmen Thainks to file just go to Texas secretary of state ......and get it notorized and fax it back ...Thanks love you all.

Would you please read the following article and respond with your comments either privately or via this forum.

The time to facilitate change is now and we are running out of time. If we have not created massive exposure for this cause before the war with Iran takes place we have lost. Thanks,

Thanks for your support . One thing about my ideas is I would take control out of the hands of a private corporations{ the fed } and into the the hands of congress. I would take people out of the uemployment line by printing money to employ these unfortunate people . It is still not to late to file to run in your district friday is the deadline. I know I face a huge up hill battle to win the election but whats more important is to keep our ideas in the open.We have got to make people realize that we are not going away?
