Perot Memoriam

Perot's timing, even in passing, was just right.

Much has been said about Ross Perot’s passing but little from his grassroots. That’s us at the League of Independent Voters who got up close enough to find long-lasting appreciation and love for the imperfect Ross Perot. They – the insurgents – never are perfect. But the timing of his death was so like him. It was right on the money with new independent leadership (Amash, Cuban and others) emerging at that very moment of his passing. Is the potential for a more far reaching independent cataclysm than the Perot movement real? Don't Mourn. Read this and keep organizing:

This major litigation -- with some powerful pro-bono legal chops from Shearman & Sterling and the Center for Competitive Democracy -- against the unfair petition rules for independents and minor parties in Texas, just hit the news!

Today, we continue the battle for competitive elections. It's all about the millions of voters in Texas who want more choices, regardless of their voting status.

Let the Games BeginYou didn't hear about how in this Texas legislative session Republicans made sure the Greens -- retroactively -- got back on the Texas ballot, in order to mess with the Democrats, did ya? Texas Democrats, to mess with the Republicans, also put the stomp on an attempt by Republicans to take Libertarians off the Texas ballot. Who's going to tell you? The same people who are looking out for millions of Texas independents. That's us here at LIV, from LIV Advisor, Mark Miller, LIV's own professor of busting the two-party monopoly.
