Kathie Glass Runs for Gov. of Texas on Bold Nullification Platform

We need a Kathie Glass running for every political office in the country. Texas leads the way!
Kathie Glass (shown) is the Libertarian nominee for Texas governor, and she is spreading the word of federalism and fearless opposition to federal overreach during her “Texas 254 Tour.”

Glass chose the number 254 because that is the number of counties in the Lone Star State and she plans to visit each one before Election Day in November. Glass has a hard row to hoe in her quest to be the state’s chief executive. She faces Greg Abbott, the Republican candidate and current state attorney general; and Wendy Davis, state senator and abortion advocate.

During a campaign stop in Mineral Wells, Texas, Glass continues on a swing dubbed the “Red River Tour” that passed through Texarkana, Bowie County, and Wichita County. At every stop, Glass is greeted by throngs of patriots who support Glass’s message of state sovereignty and resistance to federal seizure of state land. In Wichita County, for example, Glass spoke at a gathering of Texans protesting recent efforts by the Obama administration’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to seize control of rich ranch land running along the Red River.
“Washington is broken and the two-party system is corrupted by special interests,” said Glass, as reported by the Mineral Wells Index. “If we are to save our liberty, our Constitution and our country, we have to chart a new course — away from Washington and outside the corrupt two-party system.”
Speaking of property rights on her website, Glass writes:

Defeat BLM land grabs. End eminent domain. Stop toll road boondoggles, public/private partnerships, and other forms of cronyism.  Defend water rights from theft by federal, international, state, or local authorities, commissions, boards, or private entities using the machinery of government.  Beat back any effort — no matter how small — to disarm Texans.

Glass told protestors that liberty is threatened by a federal government habitually violating the Constitution and the principle of federalism upon which it is built.

So committed to the Constitution is Glass that her campaign slogan — “Less Government, More Freedom” — is similar in spirit to the motto of The John Birch Society: “Less Government, More Responsibility, and — with God’s help — a better world.”

The section of Glass’s campaign website explaining her purpose for running strikes a chord with all constitutionalists concerned about the future of our Republic and liberty.

I am Kathie Glass. I love liberty, Texas, the Constitution, and America. I am a Texan, patriot, wife, mother, lawyer, self-made woman, business owner — like you, I am lots of things. But the most important thing about me is not what I am but what I want to be, and why.

I want to be the next governor of Texas because every thing that I love is under attack by an increasingly tyrannical federal government with no effective resistance. We will lose it all if we do not act, quickly and effectively.

Washington is broken, and the two party system is corrupt — corrupted by cronyism and special interests.  Neither will fix itself.  And neither can be reformed from within.

How would a Governor Glass go about righting the ship of state? She explains:

When the federal government exceeds its constitutional authority, our constitutional design requires that states and citizens push back by nullifying unconstitutional federal acts, demanding that our Ninth and Tenth Amendment sovereignty be respected and  constitutional balance restored. This, we have failed to do. Without that resistance, the federal government has had free reign to do as it pleases. And what the federal government has pleased to do, is act as a tyrant, treating us as subjects to be ruled.

That position should see no disagreement from constitutionalists….Read more
