7 principles of Libertarianism

Who does your US House Representative represent?!?!

I'm running for the US House of Representatives TX CD9. The incumbent Al Green has clearly demonstrated that he listens to, caters too and patronizes immigrants, both legal and illegal.

I understand the sentiment for immigrants since my family came to this country as French, German, and Scottish immigrants to name a few. We took on some native American genealogy  through the French side of the family tree. Ojibwe, Chippewa, and Iroquois I'm told, but when researching this my sister could only find references to spouses listed in the records as... wife (Indian). We are pretty sure which reservations but not absolutely sure which tribes.

My wife's family is Spanish and Mexican Indian mix, probably Olmec on her mother's side, and her Father claimed full blooded Tarascan Indian. Also on her mother's side were Sephardic Jews its rumoured who settled in Mexico, but that would be part of the Spanish side.

My daughter married a man who is descended from Irish, and English …

Immigration Issues

Immigration Issues:

So, I was asked about the Libertarian Party Platform and specifically how it relates to some of the issues that are pertinent to this current election cycle. Below I will do my best to answer these. Of course, my answers will come from my interpretation of our Platform, so some people may differ with my opinions.

1)Immigration:
I am not an Open Borders Libertarian. I think people who want to come to these United States should have the opportunity to seek citizenship and share in all that America has to  offer. This is not to say everyone, all the time, any way they want, however. Below I have outlined our party platform and my personal libertarian philosophy on these issues.

a)Legal and Illegal Immigration.
Party Position: Economic freedom demands the unrestricted movement of human as well as financial capital across national borders. However, we support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a credible threat to security, health or p…

Thoughts about Immigration and Guest Workers From: Mike Ryan

Below I have shared 2 short letters about immigration and guest workers from Mike Ryan, Libertarian Candidate for US House Texas Congressional District 10. Mike and I have become friends while running for the US House. I enjoy our discussions even though we do not agree on every subject. On immigration we are very close. Mike is uniquelt qualified to speak on this since he has a one generation connection to immigration of his family.
I do not. My immigrant ancestors were mainly French trappers in the Canadian wilderness, thier indian wives,  Scottish traders in the North East and German Immigrant who became coal miners in Pennsylvania. My links to their lives were lost as my family migrated throughout the early US.


My thoughts on immigration. - by: Mike Ryan
My grandparents came here legally about 110 years ago and I have the Ellis island certificates to prove it. They came her with hopes and dreams like everyone else, but also with a great respect for American values. They very much …

Differences Between Me and the Incumbent...

Recently I was asked …..Where do I and Incumbent Representative Al Green differ… 
- Phil Kurtz, 2018 Candidate for US House Texas Congressional District 9. 
The best way to illustrate the ways Incumbent Al Green would I would differ in the representation of Texas Congressional District 9, is to show where I would have voted differently than he over the last year. Below are a number of House Bills and Resolutions. In reading them I made a decision based on each motion’s alignment with my values as a conservative Libertarian.
Part1
H R 7      RECORDED VOTE      24-Jan-2017      4:48 PM QUESTION:  On Passage

A Libertarian Opinion about Abortion in these United States in 2018.

What is it to be Pro-life? The founders of our country described it as an Unalienable Right. “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Life is the paramount human right because without it, a man can exercise no other right. Government has an obligation to protect people from others that would do them harm. This include unborn babies. I am on record signing "The Declaration" with the Human Coalition Pro Life Organization. And I have been involved with the Gabriel Project which aids mothers in need including unwed and abandoned mothers. I have participated in the March for Life to Austin a few times over the last 12 years, the first time with my then teenage daughter, to hear the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. speak on the subject and her revelation that abortion terminates a human being. Below is an op ed I wrote in January about this. I hope that …
