It takes a lot more money to sell lies than it does to spread truth

Government is supposed to belong to all the people, therefore the political process has to include all the people, in every county of our state. That's why I'm spending from April to October personally visiting and speaking to the public at every one of the 254 county courthouses in Texas.

Under the Texas Constitution the people are entitled to a state attorney general who serves the public interest instead of special interests. The Texas Attorney General is the one state officer who under our Texas Constitution is most especially responsible to protect the people as citizens, consumers, taxpayers, and private property owners.

With his millions of dollars of campaign contributions from the wealthy and the privileged, the incumbent Rick Perry Republican attorney general, Greg Abbott, wants to purchase another four years to continue protecting the toll-road profiteers, the insurance companies, the oil companies, and corrupt politicians from the people.

This year the voters have a real choice for real change. I'm a fighting grassroots lawyer with 30 years of Texas courtroom experience, and I'm determined to protect the people from the corporate robber barons and political insiders instead of the other way around. When your lawyer has a conflict of interest you should fire him, and it's time for the people of Texas to fire Greg Abbott.

I'm tired of politicians talking out of both sides of their mouths. I'm filing my convictions and pledges in writing under oath, in public records, because my fellow Texans have a right to know exactly what I intend to do on their behalf. I want my fellow Texans to know that I mean what I say. To see my sworn pledges to my fellow Texans you may review my affidavit at this website.

It takes a lot more money to sell lies than it does to spread truth. I'll rely on the wisdom of the people in contrast to Greg Abbott's millions of dollars worth of slick television commercials. The people of Texas need a real lawyer to work for them for a change, not a slick public relations hound. Thank you for listening to this message.
