FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Dallas, TX – John Jay Myers, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senator from Texas, will be traveling across Texas in caravan with Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson starting this week. Texans will see the pair and their supporters in decorated vehicles, including a RV and a GMC Acadia professionally wrapped in Gary Johnson colors and images. According to Mr. Myers, their goal is to reach as many freedom-lovers and disenchanted voters in Texas as possible and show them how liberty will win.

John Jay Myers will join Governor Johnson for a meet and greet andbreakfast in Dallas (8/15-8/16), a book signing and dinner in Austin (8/17), ameet and greet and VIP reception in San Antonio (8/18), and a receptionand open mic night in Houston (8/19). Mr. Myers will also be stopping at East Beach in Galveston (8/19), and visiting East Texas for a publicbarbecue in Tyler (8/21), and dinner in Mount Pleasant (8/21) during an extended part of the trip.

Mr. Myers is running a campaign on three basic planks. First, end the wars and bring our troops home, from just about everywhere. Second, end corporate welfare (like bailouts) and detach America’s dependency on the Federal Reserve. Third, promote a culture where individual adults are completely free to make their own choices with regard to their personal relationships and recreational drug use. Myers owns and operates two independent businesses employing 34 people. He believes that his small business experience and his fiery, honest, tell-it-like-it-is personality will win big with grassroots Texans in November.

    Jill @ 2. Motivated by Steve Kubby’s admonition — HEY — We’re the PARTY of FUN. Without FUN, how can it be a PARTY.

    I’d LOVE to be on that Roadtrip with them!

  2. just saying

    They forgot to mention ROAD TO HONG KONG (1962). I’m not sure people will get the point with only six films listed in the middle of a sentence.

    just saying @ 4 — Thanks for the best laugh of the day. Yep, IPR, has (I’ve been assured by the editors) a bias toward a bit of comedy here and there (especially when ponderously parenthetically expressed).

  4. Libertarian Party Needs Your Support

    I hope someone (or many) is (are) contacting ALL local media in advance to get maximum profit (exposure) from these campaign trips. A good advance media person is a must for a third party effort !

    This is truly great and will mean tens of thousands of extra votes in TX. Send them a few bucks to help on travel expenses.
