Kinky for Texas Governor

Texas author, musician, and humor columnist Kinky Friedman is in the running for Texas Governor in 2006. Kinky’s platform and positions on the issues are refreshingly unconventional. He has my vote over Governor Perry and any other politician that might oppose the incumbent governor.

Kinky promises to provide a solution to the problem that is the two-party system. Kinky needs our help to make it onto the ballot, though. He needs 50,000 valid signatures to have his name appear on the ballot as candidate for Governor of Texas. However, he cannot begin collecting those signatures until after the Republican and Democratic Primaries, March 7, 2006, and he only has roughly a month; further, anybody who votes in either primary is ineligible to sign by Texas law. Texas is the only state in the union with such a law. These rules are intended to keep the two major parties in power.

So, for Texas residents, make sure you have been a registered voter for at least 31 days prior to March 2006, do not vote in the Republican or Democratic primaries, be certain to sign the petition to put Kinky on the ballot, and then, vote for Kinky in November 2006!
