_Will you vote Libertarian?
My name is Michael Carrasco and I'd like you to vote for me as your representative in the Texas Legislature.
Like other Libertarian candidates, I believe in free markets, civil liberties, and peace.
I've been unhappy with the results of both Democrats and Republicans and that's why I have decided to run for office myself as a Libertarian.
_What is a Libertarian?
_Libertarians believe that people should be allowed to live their own lives as they want and get the government out of our business.
CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. You, as stated by our nation's Founding Fathers, have the inalienable right to live, be free and prosper to your fullest potential without hindrance from any person or entity. You have the freedom to pursue your happiness as long as you respect others' rights to pursue theirs.
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. You are responsible for your personal choices, able to take care of yourself and capable to do for others as you expect them to do unto you. Conversely, others are free to live their lives as they see fit and are responsible for their choices. We believe in tolerance toward others and respect for self-sovereignty.
LIMITED GOVERNMENT. Your government's principal function is to protect your freedom, your unalienable rights of Life, Liberty and Property, all crucial rights for building a free and prosperous society. Government should be of the necessary size and scope, as outlined in the United States Constitution, to efficiently support its constitutional duties and effectively maintain the rule of law. The Libertarian vision of government is of a government strictly confined to its constitutional role, a government that respects civil liberties, recognizes that the individual is more important than the State, exercises fiscal restraint and understands that each generation must pay its own debts, believes in free markets and practices a non-interventionist foreign policy of "peace toward all, entangling alliances with none."
The Libertarian Party is the third largest and fastest-growing political party in Texas and in the United States. It is also the only political party to advocate truly limited government, especially as established in the U.S. Constitution by our Founders.
_Why vote Libertarian?
__Win or lose, every vote for a Libertarian sends a clear message for liberty. Don't waste your vote encouraging the Republicans and Democrats who keep making our lives worse. Don't let them scare you into voting for more government. Vote Libertarian.
We are America's third-largest political party. Many Libertarians serve in elected office throughout the U.S. We have affiliates in all 50 states. We run hundreds of candidates for all political offices from President down to U.S. Congress and city councils.
I hope you will help me change Texas for the better. I hope you will vote for me, Michael Carrasco, for State Representative.
What district am I in?
