Dr. Tom Oliverson is a candidate for Texas State Representative, House District 130. The district lies within north Harris County. His lone opponent in the race is liberty candidate, Kay Smith, a former Vice President of the Harris County Board of Education.
During a candidates’ forum at the Cypress Republican Women’s Club monthly meeting, Tuesday, February 9, 2016, the two candidates were asked if they would vote for or against Texas Speaker Joe Straus for an unprecedented 5th term when the 85th Texas Legislature convenes in January of 2017.
Straus, the most polarizing figure in Texas politics, election cycle after election cycle is a point of contention. Who will vote for him, and who will vote against him? Whether a voter is supportive of the LM (liberty movement) or the GOP Establishment (maintain the status quo and power structure), a candidate’s position on Straus has become the ultimate litmus test. A candidate that will openly state that they will not vote for Straus, under any circumstances, is now easily identified as a potential liberty champion with a full grasp of the nature of Texas House leadership. A candidate that waffles on the issue, or openly states their support for Straus and parrots the talking points constructed by his consultants, is now easily identified as a tool for the plutocracy and should be stopped from entering public office in Texas.
For the voters of the LM across Texas, a vote for Joe Straus remain Speaker has become a vote against life, liberty, and prosperity. Therefore, why would any Texas voter cast their precious vote for a House candidate that will call “THE KING”?
