Libertarians on TV!

It all started when the Belo Corporation excluded Texas gubernatorial candidate James Werner, a libertarian, from a debate that did include two independents, Kinky Friedman and Carole Keeton-Strayhorn. This was untenable, and hence we wanted to give Werner an opportunity to speak to the UT-Austin campus. I was tasked with convincing him to come (not very hard) and then it immediately blew up to the point where we were calling television stations and newspapers, posting flyers all over campus, and telling as many people as we could about it. Michael Badnarik also spoke at the event, and somewhere around 10 other candidates were also in attendance.

At any rate, the event was held two days ago and was quite successful, in my opinion. THREE television stations came to check us out. Now, I don’t agree even with everything these candidates say, but it is a good step in the right direction.

And you also get to see me in front of a camera...
