Independent Texans, it’s redundant, founded in 2001.

Independent Texans PAC is a general purpose political action committee registered with the state of Texas since 2001. We are “unbossed and unbought” (in the words of Shirley Chisholm) by the parties and their special interest backers. We are dedicated to providing a place for Texans to self-organize and to create solutions that depart from partisanship, ideology and the general axe grinding that has turned millions of voters away from political parties and “mainstream” media.

What we do:
Independent Texans sometimes supports or opposes ballot and bond measures and candidates running on any party line or as small “i” unaffiliated independents. We also invite you now to visit our Petition page for a basic “how to” on petitioning to place measures on your home rule city ballot — a 104-year right of Texans to self-government.

This purpose of this website:
Attempts to serve as a “muckraker” — to search for and expose misconduct in public life. Today, there is so much influence peddling, soft and hard corruption in the public sphere and regular ol’ business as usual, we invite you to submit your own information to this blog. Just be prepared to back up your accusations.

Legal Status:
Independent Texans files reports donors and expenditures that you can find online at the Texas Ethics Commission and we support full disclosure of campaigns.

Our criteria is for support begins with Political Reform & Fiscal Reform and ends with whatever issues are identified by voters within the particular district in play.

Read our 2010 paper Who Will Organize the Independents” if you really want to understand where we came from and where we’re going. (We plan to update this paper in early 2017 – so come back soon!)

Our analysis of the 2006 gubernatorial election, “Divided We Stood“, with two independents (Carole Keeton Strayhorn and Kinky Friedman) on the ballot explains why Texas is really, really independent!
