Call in to speak with the host
Ben Shaw with the Anderson campaign talks to Tim about ballot access and current issues in the campaign.
In 2011, he decided to leave the Democratic party because of his disgust with the Obama administration's betrayal on civil liberties issues and its promotion of war in Iraq, Afghanistan, and later Libya and now Syria. When Rocky Anderson announced his candidacy for President of the Untied States in late 2011, Ben began working on getting Rocky Anderson on the ballot in Texas and on creating the Justice Party of Texas as a permanent state political party that could nominate candidates for state and local offices as well as helping to nominate and elect future Presidential nominees of the Justice party. He also served as co-ballot access coordinator for the Southern states for the national Justice party, and it was in that capacity where Ben Shaw and Tim Gatto met. Ben is currently serving as State Treasurer of the Justice Party of Texas and manages the Website and Facebook page for the Justice Party of Texas. He has also launched a political news site, Texas Justice News, which features articles and blogs about Justice issues in Texas.
It's good to talk.
