Libertarian Kathie Glass declares for Texas Governor

Libertarian Kathie Glass Announces Bid for Governor | The Texas Tribune:

October 2, 2013 - "Saying that the current federal government shutdown and tensions between Republicans and Democrats have made Texans ready for a change in leadership, Libertarian Kathie Glass on Wednesday officially announced her candidacy in the 2014 governor’s race....

"'This shutdown is just a glimpse of what might happen,' Glass said at her Austin news conference, at which several other Texas Libertarian hopefuls also announced their candidacies. 'Voters know that what they want they are not going to get from the two other parties, so we are looking forward to offering them this alternative from the Libertarian Party.'

"Glass said her campaign would focus on the idea of nullification, a legal theory that a state can invalidate federal laws it finds unconstitutional. She said that if she doesn't win, she hopes her election will instill that idea into the public and the winning candidate.

She said she would nullify the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, and federal regulations on companies that lead them to ship jobs overseas to nations with laxer regulations.

"'In the current environment, if we keep doing what we have always done, voting within the two-party system, we won't be able to keep what we have got,' Glass said. 'We have got to chart a new course.'"
