For the first time since 1997 when Ron Paul slimed his way back into Congress on the Republican Revolution’s coattails, TX-14 might actually be represented by a Republican Congressman.
Despite being a conservative district, TX-14 has not had a Republican Congressman in the 15 years that Ron Paul has fed pork earmarks to the district in exchange for using it as a platform to denounce America and whatever random things upset him that week while claiming that he was representing some version of the Constitution that only he was familiar with.
Republican Randy Weber is favored to win Ron Paul’s district, though the district has also attracted Zach Grady, a Ron Paul wannabe who calls himself a ”Paulitician” and urges Americans on the left and right to “rise up against the global scheme”, end the federal reserve, fight the military-industrial complex, prosecute Muslim terrorists as criminals and stop the lizard people from running the country into the ground. The last one isn’t stated, but is probably on the agenda.
The call to unite right and left should be yet another reminder that these people are not Republicans or Conservatives, they are conspiracy theorists.
But for those Ron Paul supporters who think that Zach Grady is too sane and moderate, there’s always Rhett Rosenquest Smith of the Green Party and quotes Barbara Jordan on his website.
His platform is well… this.
I believe the current political “setup” fails to address issues such as the Interfaith Religious Issues and Muslim and Palestinian issues in the Holy Land.
I support the rights of Latin American Citizens and oppose invasive and illegal searches.
So Texas-14 voters will have a choice between a Republican and two Ron Paul Mini-Mes.
