Is it possible for Texas Independents to swing the Cruz v Beto race?

If you live in Central Texas, be sure to read the WATER WAR ALERT at the end of this message. Please come to these events on September 13th and 26th! More below.

You haven't heard much from the League of Independent Voters (LIV) lately. Frankly, we've been retooling and waiting for opportunities we thought would not come until 2020.

Even we are surprised at how tight the race is between Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O'Rourke.

Everybody's talking about the obvious -- independent voters will be the swing vote in tight races.

There's also a heated race in Congressional District 21 (Lamar Smith's vacated seat) between Joseph Kopser (D) and Chip Roy (R). CD-21 covers the area where the 142-mile San Antone Hose hooks into San Antonio Water System and most of the Hill Country. See the map?

What are we -- non-partisan independent voters -- to do?

Do the Texas Independent two-step!

Step 1: Read LIV's hot-off-the-press paper...How to Organize Texas Independents. Share it with your favorite candidate(s)

Step 2:  Volunteer to help LIV do candidate forums.

Oops! We almost forgot! LIV needs some capital (or is it Capitol?!) investment. Help us grow the independent movement.

  1. I am pro Beto, I do not like for Cruz in any of the election, not because he is Republican, but because he is a liar. The Cubans have a name for those like Cruz and he been half of Cuban knows how they and Puertoricans are calling him.
    Hope everyone can see in Beto a responsible man and clear in his good intentions, meaning he do not tell you going to do this and do different after talk with his high profile contributors.

    1. Thank you, Pedro. Always so good to hear from you. It is clear that candidates, of all ethnic, racial and other backgrounds can easily “cross-over”, these days. Most independents we know just want to know what you stand for and go from there.

    2. Hola Pedro,

      I am posting a direct quote from the debate.

      O’Rourke said, “…thoughts and prayers, Senator Cruz, are just not going to cut it anymore…”

      No Christian (or any other faith that prays) would tolerate this. O’Rourke is either agnostic or a good old fashion atheist.

      1. Why does that quote mean that Beto couldn’t be a Christian? We Christians respect that other non-Christian people of faith pray.
