PARKER COUNTY —
Every Texan of voting age has a “first-in-a-life-time” opportunity to select a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives this election cycle. Never before have you had the opportunity to be as personally involved in selecting a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. Our country desperately needs your involvement now. If you do nothing, there will be no change.
Americans don’t have to vote for “the lesser of the two evils” or express their protest of “the system” by voting for a “no-chance” third party candidate any longer. Gone are the days when any Texan might be able to justify an “it doesn’t matter whether I vote or not” attitude.
Congressional District 33 includes Decatur, all of Parker County and Arlington. It is one of four new districts created by the last Texas legislature as a result of the 2010 census. I am the leader of the GOOOH (Get Out Of Our House) effort to “place 435 citizen representatives on the ballot in 2012, competing for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.” The hope is to have our selected candidate compete in the 2012 primary elections. The biggest problem: the filing deadline to have a name placed on the primary ballot is Jan. 4, 2012. That’s less than three months away!
Please go to www.goooh.com and learn all about GOOOH and its simple plan.
The district 33 candidate selection meeting will be held in Arlington in the Martin High School cafeteria, 4501 Pleasant Ridge Road, on Saturday, Nov. 5. The doors will open at 9 a.m. and the meeting will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.. Martin High School is just off I-20 in south Arlington. Please plan to attend. It just makes sense; the more people who participate in the selection process, the better that selection will be.
The person selected by the GOOOH process will:
1. Have clearly documented their stance on 100+ issues in the candidate questionnaire.
2. Have been chosen by their peers in a rigorous candidate selection process.
3. Be legally obligated to vote according to their candidate questionnaire answers.
4. Truly represent the political views of the people in their district.
5. Not be controlled by or have any allegiance to any party.
6. Not owe any favors to special interest groups.
Wouldn’t you like to be represented by a person like that? Contact email@example.com for more information.

Letters to the Editor: Stop the bailout
Dear Editor, The administration and congress knew that ObamaCare would fail but have had a plan all along to bail out the private insurance companies that supported the law with taxpayer money. Of course, this plan was kept hidden from American citizens that are already burdened by taxes. Congress should do everything it can to stop this disastrous bill.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Reader backs Vick
What an exciting time in Parker County to have Dedra Vick, a lady with incredible skills and integrity, running for Parker County treasurer.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: In response to ‘Challenging One’s Beliefs’
Dear Editor, In response to the letter to the editor, “Challenging One’s Beliefs,” published Friday:
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR — Manmade global warming
Dear Editor, If global warming is true, it is caused by too much sex. The estimated global population in 1900 was 1.6 billion. In 2011, it was estimated to be 7 billion. Have you ever noticed how the temperature rises in a room that is overcrowded by warm bodies?
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: God's not dead!
For most of human history, theism was treated as a given. To be sure, there were differences of opinion on the issue. Are there many gods or one? Does he communicate through law, the Bible or prophets? If so, which ones? Might he have become incarnate at some time in human history in the person of Jesus? These questions and countless others have been answered in many different ways by the world’s great religious traditions. But the underlying presumption in favor of some form of theism remained a constant.
Letters to the Editor: New Year's Resolutions
With New Year’s resolutions just around the corner, consider the popular trend toward a healthy, eco-friendly, compassionate meat-free diet.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Pardoning traditions
Dear Editor, President Obama will get a break from “Obamacare” when he pardons the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. Each of us can also set aside our cares by pardoning a turkey and choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance — one that gives thanks for our good fortune, health and happiness with a life-affirming, cruelty-free feast of vegetables, fruits and grains.
Letters to the Editor: Breaking a few eggs
Dear Editor, Mr. Tilly, rather than wasting nine paragraphs recycling the lies and excuses coming from the administration, would better have employed a quote that has the virtue of being both succinct and closely reflective of his views: “You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.”
Letters to the Editor: What really scares me
Dear Editor, I am not scared of all the witches, zombies, and assorted goblins wandering about on Halloween. What really scares me is the meat industry.
