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

Kathie Glass 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 her 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 protesters 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.
