1. Who Are We - Where Did We Come From
Where Are We Going
Mother's Day weekend, 1992, found the 2nd Vice President of Texas Motorcycle Roadriders
Association, attending his first NCOM Convention in New Jersey. Sputnik was very impressed with the
political involvement of those riders from across the country, most notably Jesse McDugald. Jesse was
founder and President of South Carolina ABATE. Following the Saturday night banquet, US Senator
Dave Durenberger of Minnesota was the keynote speaker. He gave a rousing speech that contained
the words :
"Bikers are the last hope of America to remain a free country. You are the only ones who care
enough about individual liberty to stand up and fight for it. I'm here tonight to tell you, you had
better get off your ass and you had better start fighting, because you are losing it every day."
Upon hearing these words, his life and indeed the very political scene in Texas had been changed
Upon returning home, Sputnik had to report to the TMRA Board of Directors what had transpired at the
convention. Standing before the other board members his report started out with the words : "I learned
one thing this weekend. TEXAS SUCKS !! As the only state that was a country first, we should be
leaders in the liberty movement yet we are far behind these other states." Sputnik urged more
involvement in the political arena by TMRA members, to no avail. As a member of TMRA and ABATE,
Sputnik saw no real effort being put out by either group to change the way things were done in Austin.
He then decided to found a new organization with the only goal being to take over the political process
in Texas, by teaching citizens how the political process really worked. His intentions were announced at
the next TMRA General membership meeting. Immediately following the meeting, David Spaeth
approached and handed Sputnik a $50 bill saying, "I want to be a member of your organization." We
now had member #1 of an organization that didn't even exist yet.
Bill Carlton, Jim Perry, Jean Hudgins and a few others were instrumental in helping make the change
over a friendly change with co-existence for all time.
The rest of the membership was not so easy to come by. July 4,1992 was set as the official founding
date for the association. This date was not picked because it was considered to be Independence Day
for this country. It was because we started in July - four is the most sacred number to the American
Indians - and we were going to need all the help we could get. After registering Mr. Spaeth as #1,
Sputnik got on his bike and headed out across Texas to speak with anyone who would listen. Members
were counted by how many miles traveled per application received. The message being touted was [
VOTE, go back in when the polls reopen and become a delegate in your Party, become a delegate to
the State Party Convention and we can start running Texas. ] We printed a booklet called "Revolution
- The Real Solution" that outlined the delegate process in detail. Membership grew slowly.
Realizing we needed a victory we chose to attempt to open the HOV Lanes to motorcycle riders in
Texas. Even though the issue had been fought by the Texas Motorcycle Dealers Association for years,
we used the system and opened the lanes in 34 days. Sputnik declared himself as State Chairman until
an election could be held in 1994. Dale Slaughter and B.J. Waugh became very active lieutenants in
the army we were building. Since we had declared war on politics as usual, our members became
known as "Legislative Warriors." We took as our logo, the snake, outlined by the state of Texas, with
the words. DON'T TREAD on ME inscribed above. This was the battle flag of Texans as they fought for
independence from Mexico.
With only 200 warriors and 6 months of preparation we began the 1993 legislative session. For reasons
best left unsaid we did not address the helmet law in 1993. We did, with support from El Paso Senator,
Peggy Rosson, address three issues. (1) keep the HOV Lanes open to riders, (2) change way tolls are
figured for motorcycles on new toll roads in Texas and (3) receive handicap license plates for
motorcycles. All three issues were successfully passed. Our 1st endeavor in the legislative process was
successful. Senator Rosson became our first "Legislator of the Year" Award winner.
It was now time to test our wings in the political arena. The 1st candidate we supported was Florence
Shapiro from Piano. The senator she was seeking to replace was the man who gave us our helmet and
seatbelt laws in Texas. Mrs. Shapiro became Senator Shapiro in a landslide vote. She showed her
appreciation by roping off the front of her campaign headquarters for motorcycle parking only, during
her victory celebration. Dale Slaughter was very instrumental in this endeavor.
May 22, 1994 we held our first state meeting in Brady, Texas. Sputnik became the first, elected, State
Chairman of the Association. A constitution and By-laws consisting of two pages was adopted. This
was to be a SMRO like none thus far in existence. The State Chair would have control of the
association with input from a Board of Advisors, one from each Senatorial District in the state. The
Chairman would be elected by all members in the state, with Advisors being elected by members in
their respective districts. Terms of office would be two years. Chapters would be established across the
state and would be as nearly autonomous as 1 possible as long as they followed the state
constitution and by-laws. Our first chapter was founded in McQueeny under the supervision of Eddie
Miller. Jeff Castro quickly followed suit with the D/FW chapter in Dallas.
Our first attempt at becoming Party delegates was successful. With 363 members, we had 310
delegates to the 1994 Democratic State Convention and 31 delegates to the Republican State
Convention. We established our own town at Joe Poole Lake as our base of operations for the 1994
Democratic State Convention and called it "DREAM TOWN, TEXAS. We had our own post office
complete with postmark and zip code. The city officials were all bikers. There were no taxes and 100%
employment. The 1st city ever run totally by bikers. We had a police escorted parade into the
convention center Saturday morning with over 600 riders taking part. Texas Motorcycle Rights
Association held the first ever biker caucus at a state Party convention. It was the largest and drew the
most attention of any caucus at the convention. We passed every Resolution we introduced during the
convention. We rode into Ft. Worth that day as a rag tag army of raw recruits and rode out that night as
seasoned veterans. Jesse McDugald and Holly Swinford were guest speakers. The rest is HISTORY!
Membership continued to grow, chapters were being established and we became more active in
political campaigns and more adept at legislative action. The 1995 legislative session was easier to
negotiate. It was considered a success even though we failed in our first attempt at changing the state
helmet law. This added character and resolve to our warriors. Nancy Knapp became our first State
Secretary/Treasurer. She moved to Austin and the state office was moved to her apartment. The 1996
State Conventions found nearly three times the number of biker delegates in attendance at each one.
We set up a town at both conventions and called them "REALITY CITY"; our Dream had become
Reality. We took on our 1st Floor fight during the Democratic Convention and won. We had moved up a
level. A second booklet entitled "Five Steps To Freedom" (one step at a time) was printed in August
and became our guideline for future involvement.
The '97 session proved to be another learning experience but a very valuable experience for all.
We held our "Legislative Day '97" on the 4th Monday of January. This was our 1st attempt at making a
show of force and giving our warriors hands on experience in dealing with legislators. We had riders
from across the state, inside the Capitol, expressing our issues of concern during a workday.
They continued to show up when needed, throughout the session. It really went over big with both
legislators and news media. We appeared as a feature on Fox News. Later, The Today show came
down and did a feature about our escapades. It was a very rewarding experience for the entire group.
We made a very strong ally in Chairman Alexander and in fact had built an incredible amount of support
from nearly the whole House. They were fantastic. Especially Chairman Alexander and the entire
House Conference Committee! We named Senator Patterson as Senator of the Year and Rep. Jim
Pitts as Representative of the Year. We also gave Chairman Alexander an Award for Honor and
We passed a helmet law amendment, which contained stipulations. Be 21 years of age and have
$10,000 medical insurance or take the Rider Ed. Course. Our membership agreed to it, other states
and Associations raised hell about it and Sputnik said "I don't give a damned. I made the decision and I
don't regret it !) We are now batting 1000 on our Bills we had introduced. Let's move on, start
campaigning and get ready for the next Primaries. That is our main goal anyway.
Nancy moved back north and a permanent office was established in Austin. Cyndi Calhoun moved to
Austin and became State Sec./Treas.
We did reasonably well in the '98 campaigns we worked. Our biggest disappointment was our failure to
get Senator Patterson elected as State Land Commissioner. Still, our goal of becoming delegates had
far exceeded our expectations. We had nearly 40% of the delegates at the Democratic Convention. We
filed our 1st Minority Report with the Democratic Party. They backed down rather than have a floor vote
that we would have won. We had passed another milestone for bikers in politics. We gave Rep. Terri
Hodge the Freshman Legislator of the Year award during our caucus meeting. We endorsed Molly Beth
Malcom for state chair of the Democratic Party and her opponent withdrew. Her 1st decree as chairman
was that she wanted a motorcycle ride right now. She knew our endorsement guaranteed her victory
and she had brought a pair of jeans. Mike Alvey and Sputnik took Molly Beth and her daughter for a 30-
minute tour of San Antonio while Party officials waited at the convention center to get busy.
We had a really good turnout for the Governor's Inauguration and it was duly noted by the dignitaries
"Legislative Day '99 was even a bigger surprise. Nearly 2500 riders made their appearance inside the
Capitol this time. From early morning to late at night, riders continued to come into the Capitol. Every
Senator and Rep. present received probably more visitors than they wished and nearly all of them wore
biker attire. We were met on the front steps at 7:00am by Governor Bush asking what our goals were
this year. One issue was an increased budget for our Rider Ed. Program. The governor said he could
take care of that one for us, which he did. Rep. Buddy West was handed the job of making it happen
and he and his entire staff worked diligently on our behalf. That's Who We Are and Where We Came
From. We are going to the top. Shouldn't you be coming along for the ride? After all isn't it the
ride that is important? This is the ride of your life !!
2. WHAT IS A LONE STAR/LEGISLATIVE WARRIOR
All of us involved in the TMRA II organization are known as Lone Star or Legislative Warriors. We
work together to preserve the freedom our forefathers fought to give us.
Our forefathers fought the same type of war we are fighting today. They worked hard within the system
to try and make change work. When the system gave them no recourse, they picked up their guns and
formed their own government.
We are working within the system to preserve our liberty. The difference today is that our legislative
system does work if we the people work together to make it so. We the Warriors have proved this time
and time again with our accomplishments here in Texas. So join us and learn what 'We the People'
3. WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED
Opened HOV Lanes to Motorcycles.
Changed tolls on new toll roads for bikes with trailers or sidecars.
Caused Breckenridge Park to change their ban on motorcycles.
Convinced SW Memorial Hospital to lift their no motorcycle parking rule.
Helped kill "No Fault" insurance.
Changed the way most legislators perceive motorcycle riders.
Received handicapped license plates for motorcycles.
Unified the state in motorcycle rights.
Worked with DPS Motorcycle Safety Bureau to get the motorcycle safety course to count as the road
test to get your motorcycle license, if you already have a car or truck license. Also, you can take the
MSC for ticket dismissal.
Changed the State helmet law to allow those who meet the qualifications to have choice.
Have been placed in the new collage government textbook as an example of how the system works.
4. PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
Support DPS Motorcycle Safety Division in advancing Motorcycle Awareness Programs.
Increase funding for, and expand Texas's rider education program.
Oppose any change in insurance laws that discriminate against motorcycle riders. (Defeat of the two
Bills introduced during the '95 session saved you enough money to pay association membership for 50
Introduce legislation to prevent discrimination based on style of dress or mode of transportation.
Teach riders how to successfully run for office with little or no money.
Establish full time legislative office, in Austin, to monitor legislation and protect rider's rights.
Build the biggest and most efficient MRO in the country, which is Texas' rightful heritage.
5. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
We have divided the state along state senatorial district lines and each district has an advisor, which is
elected by the current members in that district. The state Chair is elected by all current members and
the secretary/treasurer is appointed by the Chair, with District Advisor's approval.
Elections are held by mail-in-ballot. The ballots are counted and the new officers seated at the May
meeting during odd numbered years. Term of office is two years.
As chapters are established (with advisor's approval) they shall elect any officers they deem necessary,
in any manner they choose, and for term limits they find expedient. No one may be a voting member of
more than one chapter.
6. CREED OF THE LONE STAR LEGISLATIVE
I am a Lone Star Legislative Warrior and dedicated
to freedom of choice with responsibility.
I am a citizen of the United States of America
and the State of Texas.
I am a member of the Texas Motorcyclist Rights Association,
the last of the fighters for individual Liberty.
I am proud of the Texas Motorcyclist Rights Association
and will conduct myself to bring credit upon the association.
Liberty is my watchword. My two basic responsibilities
will be uppermost in my mind, accomplishment
of the association vision, mission, goals, objectives and Liberty for all.
I am aware of my role as a Lone Star Legislative Warrior.
I will fulfill my responsibilities in that role.
The individual rights, so ably prescribed by the forefathers
of my country are for all citizens.
I will place the needs of my fellow motorcyclists above my own.
Striving to be knowledgeable about the rights of citizens
and members are important in this role.
I will communicate with my brothers and sisters
and never leave them uninformed.
Those elected to positions of trust will have the
maximum time to accomplish their duties.
I will earn their respect and confidence
as well as that of my brethren. I will be loyal to those who ride.
I will exercise action in the absence of truth, honesty, and integrity.
Individual Liberty is of paramount importance to a Lone Star Legislative Warrior
The wind is like freedom - it is ours.
"We each must do that which we can do, to the best of our ability."
7. Five Steps to Freedom (one step at a Time)
TEXAS STATE CONSTITUTION
Article 1 Sec 2: "All political power is inherent in the people, all free governments are founded
on their authority and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands
pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and subject to this limitation
only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in
such manner as they may think expedient...."
In order for us to become effective in our endeavors we must educate the biker community as
how to work within the legislative process. This process can be as simple as registering to vote
or how to run for a political office and win. We have simplified the process into five steps.
These are the basic guidelines on how to get involved and to what level you wish to proceed.
By no means is this intended to be an detailed do's and don'ts document, just a basic how to
get started and get yourself through it guide.
FIVE STEPS TO FREEDOM
Each trip begins with one step. The reason so many people fail to accomplish goals is they
attempt to do everything at once. How about if you humor an old brother and try it this way one
time. As I tell my bro's, don't look at the big picture, just do your part, one step at a time, and
the whole will come together just fine. Try it.
Five Steps to Freedom
STEP 1 REGISTER TO VOTE
Before you can have any input in the political process you must become a registered voter. Registering
is easy and it is free. To qualify as a registered voter you must be18 years of age, a US citizen and a
resident of the county in which you register. The Texas Election Code, Section 13.001(a)(4), allows that
a convicted felon may petition for reinstatement of their voting rights 2 years after having satisfied their
judgment to the court. Contact your voter registrar at your local courthouse or call the Secretary of
State office for details. 1-800-252-8683.
You can pick up a voter registration card at any courthouse or post office in the state. Fill out all
necessary information and drop into any mail box where mail is retrieved.(no postage necessary) You
must be duly registered 30 days prior to an election to be eligible to vote in that election.
Upon receipt of your voter card you will need 4 pieces of information. Your precinct number (which will
be on the card). Each county is divided into voting precincts. The location for voting in each precinct will
be published in your local paper or can be found at the local courthouse prior to each election. Except
in special cases the location will generally remain the same. It is not necessary to re-register as long as
you vote at least once each two years or don't move. The other three bits of information may or may not
be on your voter certificate. The State of Texas is divided into 150 State Representative Districts,31
State Senatorial Districts and 30 US Congressional Districts. If this information is not on your voter
certificate, it can be found at your courthouse. Each state is also represented by 2 US Senators You
must then learn the name, address and phone number(both local and capitol offices) of each of these
people. They are the ones to contact when you have any questions or requests concerning political
happenings. They are the ones you will vote for or against each two or four years as the case may be.
These four elected officials are the ones who will vote on issues for you personally. It is also a good
idea to get the same information for the County and Precinct Chair of each Party.
You are now a registered voter. You have all the necessary names, addresses and phone numbers of
those people you must deal with in order to be politically effective. Congratulations, You have
completed step 1. It has cost you very little time, no money and is probably one of the biggest decisions
you have made during this lifetime. You are now in a position to truly have a say in the political future of
your city, county, state and country. It is now imperative that you become familiar with the voting record
of those 5 people who supposedly serve your needs at both the state and federal level.
Thus begins step 2!
STEP 2 GET ACQUAINTED
It is now time to make use of the information you have gathered. Elected officials are normal people
and can not be expected to have all the answers. They depend on their constituents to keep them
informed. Today most of their information comes from paid lobbyist. You must change this situation.
They will look more favorably on a friend than someone paid to influence their vote.
Sit down and write a letter to each of the top 3 elected officials in your district. Your letter should be
hand written, no more than one page and cover only one subject. Pick any current subject in which you
are interested. Identify yourself, explain how you feet about the issue and why. Ask how they see the
issue and ask for a response. Example:
Dear Senator Anyone;
I am an avid motorcyclist but both my spouse and I drive automobiles. I am quite disturbed by the
current push for No-fault insurance in Texas. Everything I have been able to learn about this subject is
negative. It appears to me, that drivers with good driving records and especially those who ride
motorcycles would be unfairly treated under such a plan. Hawaii and Canada have both repealed their
No-fault as being too costly.
I would like to know how you feel on this issue and how you would vote on the issue should it come
before you in the next session. If you support No-fault I would like to know your reason for doing so. I
await your reply.
(VRN is voter registration #)
Since our interests are primarily motorcycle related it would be good to list any MC Club or Rights
Organization to which you belong. This will establish your standing for the future.
Each official should receive at least one letter per month. Comment on quotes they have made to the
media or action taken on a specific issue. Watch for announced meetings the officials will attend and be
there. Introduce yourself at the first meeting and make it a point to be certain they are aware of your
presence at all future meetings. Don't miss an opportunity to praise any official when they have
performed well. The best way to do this is thru the Letters to the Editor section of your local newspaper.
These papers are read by the official or his staff each morning.
You have now established yourself as a person who is knowledgeable, active in the political arena and
a registered voter and are therefore seen as a constituent who deserves consideration. Officials are
visited by paid lobbyists on a daily basis. They realize these people are not really interested in a piece
of legislation except in how it affects their salary. It is refreshing to have someone who really cares
about an issue to share information with them. Remember these are plain men and women, just like
you. For the most part, they ran for office to make a difference. Having arrived in the capitol they came
to realize things are not always as they seem. Change doesn’t come easy when the status quo has
been established for years. That is why we need more of us up there.
Never lie to an official to make your case seem more solid. They have heard them all and you will only
brand yourself as a phony. Don't offer a compromise you are not certain your Association will honor.
Let the official realize you will always be above board on any issue. Treat each official with whom you
come in contact with honesty and integrity as if dealing with a friend and you might just find you are.
Always address only one issue per letter or visit unless requested to do otherwise.
You have now established rapport with those elected officials in your District. They know you as an
honest, caring person, interested in your community and registered to vote. You have taken Step 2 and
passed with flying colors. Your new political future is moving closer to reality and all you had to do was
take one more step. Pretty simple trip so far isn’t it?
NOW move your left foot back in Front and let's take Step 3.
STEP 3 THE CAMPAIGN
Much has been written about how best to support a candidate of your choice. There are as many ways
as there are candidates. All probably work equally well if done properly. Since Motorcycle Rights
Organizations always suffer a shortage of funds, we will deal here with personal involvement.
Your prior contact with the candidates has given you a choice as to whom you will support in the
election and why. (This Association does not tell members how to vote but we do make
recommendations based on past performance or information gathered). Personal involvement in a
campaign is better and receives more notice, from a candidate or their staff, than a cash donation.
Others may disagree and I won't argue with their views. This Association began on the assumption, a
rider becoming educated in the process and getting personally involved can make a difference. This
theory has been proven to be correct. Flyers are picked up at the campaign headquarters at a
designated time and passed out on the street, in shopping malls or anywhere not prohibited by law.
You may volunteer as often or as sparingly as you wish. Once or twice a week about 2 hours per day is
Stuffing envelopes is the best way to become familiar with other campaign workers, the candidate and
their staff. You will meet with other workers to collate, fold and put campaign material into envelopes to
be mailed later. This task gets your candidate’s message out and allows you time to interact with others
who could be helpful to our cause in the legislative session. This is the perfect job for someone not
adept at going out and talking to strangers but can be group friendly.
The next form of service in a campaign is working on phone banks. For this task you will show up at a
designated time and location which will have several phones installed. You will be given a list of names
to call and to convince the person with whom you speak to not only vote but to vote for your candidate.
2-3 hours per evening, twice a week is considered sufficient but if you can give more time, do so. For
this assignment you must have a strong clear voice and have no problem speaking with strangers. As a
phone solicitor you won't have as much time to interact with other workers but your services won’t go
Putting up yard signs is the tried and true method of involvement in a campaign. Again you can do as
much or as little as you choose. You will need a crew and a pickup for this job and it is normally done
on weekends. If you choose to do the standard job, you will pick up assembled signs at a
predesignated location. You will be given a list of specific area to cover and a list of addresses where
the occupants have agreed to allow signs to be erected. It doesn't hurt if you can provide extra
locations for this project. You will generally spend most of the day Saturday and possibly Sunday
afternoons on this assignment. You will travel to each location and speak with the occupant if possible.
Identify yourself and verify their willingness to allow the signs to be posted. Place the sign(s) in the
location of their choice and move on to the next location.
If you have the time and manpower and really want to get involved you can run the entire sign
campaign. If this much involvement is possible it will really be beneficial to you in the future. Signs will
be picked up unassembled and you will not only distribute them but assemble them as well. If your
interest runs in this direction we will be more than happy to train you and your crew as to the best
methods possible to conduct this very important undertaking. As you move on to Step 5 you will see
why this is so important). This is the ultimate in volunteer duty. By accepting this much responsibility
you show yourself as willing to go the extra mile. You also are freeing up other workers and cash to be
used by the candidate elsewhere.
The campaign is over and Election Day has arrived.
Put your right foot forward one more time and take Step 4.
STEP 4 THE PRIMARY
You have worked hard and hopefully your candidate will be victorious. Win or lose you have made
friends and proven yourself to be a hard worker and a staunch supporter of those who have the same
feeling on the issues as you do. You have also seen how important citizen involvement is to the political
scene. It is now time to put that knowledge to work and take advantage of the delegate process.
Get out and meet with your neighbors. There is a saying, (Good fences make good neighbors), open
your gate and Bar-B-Que Pit and let your neighbor be your friend. Explain our goals and ask for their
support to become a delegate. Offer transportation to the polls, even if it means using 4 wheels.
1. Vote in the primary of your choice:
a. When you sign in to get your ballot ask for the time and place of the caucus meeting (they won't
volunteer this information)
b. If it is convenient, it is best to vote close to closing time so you won't have to return later.
2. The Caucus Meeting:
a. Call to order at the appointed time by the precinct chair.
b. Preparation of list of qualified participants in attendance. (only those who voted in the primary
c. Announcement of the Agenda and basic rules of procedure.
d. Nomination and election of temporary officers of the Pct. meeting. This is where you need your
e. Announcement of time and location of county or district meetings and temporary committee
meetings, if known.
f. Nomination and election of delegates to the county or district convention, whichever the case
may be in your precinct.
1. If the number present is less than the number of delegates and alternates needed,
names can be picked from the list of those who voted.
2. The above is usually the case. That is why your participation is so important. Know
which, if any, of your supporters voted but were unable to make the Caucus and get
them appointed as delegates.
a. The caucus chair asks the floor for any resolutions to be considered for the county
convention.(Our list of resolutions will be prepared in advance and you will have several copies)
b. Raise your hand and say "Mr. Chairman, I have(how many) resolutions to be entered for our
precinct. Each resolution will be read, seconded and voted. Our people will have the same
resolutions in each precinct so don't panic if some don’t pass. Note the source of opposition for
future reference. After all resolutions are introduced and voted and all announcements made,
the meeting will adjourn. (generally less than an hour).
The County or district Convention is a miniature State Convention. The committees have been chosen
and will do their work. The number of delegates from each precinct will be announced and the precinct
delegates will each elect their delegates for the State Convention. The Resolutions passed at this
Convention shall move forward to be considered at the State Convention. The State Convention is the
culmination of this whole process. This will be three days of hard work and glorious pleasure as
payment for going the distance. As we progress we can place enough members on each committee to
truly affect our future. There are 254 counties in Texas. If we could get just 10 State Delegates from
each county we could control either Party. Since we are not interested in control for it's own sake we
can interact with others to form a party which is fair to all. Only by gaining support of others can we
guarantee our right to ride free for years to come.
This is just a simple outline of the process. If you have chosen to become involved we will provide
workshops for more specific training prior to the actual Primary. Having taken these 4 steps you have
moved into the realm of knowledge as to real workings of Texas politics. You are as adept at the
process as any county chairman currently in office. It is now time to step completely into the arena. For
years we have worked to put biker friendly people in office. Now it is time we reap the full benefit of our
training and labor.
Place your left foot forward again and take Step number 5.
STEP 5 RUN FOR OFFICE
Having taken the 1st 4 steps, as outlined, you have become well known to the movers and shakers in
the local political arena. It is now time to toss your hat into the ring and become a candidate for public
office. Again we shall outline how this can be accomplished with very little cash outlay by you. This step
will in no way cover every aspect of this task. It simply gives the basics on how to start using the
knowledge you have gained through the 1st 4 steps.
Pick an office you would like to hold. It is generally wise to start with a local office, but not always
necessary. Contact your county courthouse or office of Secretary of State and declare your intent to
run. You will receive the necessary forms, which explain in detail the requirements to get on the ballot
for the office you have chosen. There is generally a filing fee for most offices. These fees can, however,
be waived by receiving enough signatures of registered voters. I recommend the petition because if you
can't get the signatures (generally 500 or less) then you can't win an election anyway and it will have
cost you nothing but time. Select your treasurer and campaign staff, get on the ballot and let the fun
begin. You and your friends have already run campaigns for other candidates so this is just a matter of
repeating the process but the rewards are much higher.
Timing is a key ingredient for making your 1st campaign a success. If possible it is best to seek an
office which has no incumbent. An incumbent always has the advantage over a challenger unless they
have totally screwed up. Few people are really well informed during an election, relying completely on
the media for their information. They will vote for an incumbent, thanks to the media, simply because
they recognize the name. Sad but true. Also, anything an incumbent says or does is covered by the
media news while you are ignored. A good way to overcome this bias is to have several of your friends
write the Letters to The Editor section of the local papers on a daily basis. Have them tell what you are
saying and doing and ask why there is no media coverage. This will get your name and message
before the public at no cost
If you must face an incumbent it is best to wage this campaign when a particular issue, which directly
affects the office you have chosen, has galvanized the public to action. Study the issue from all angles.
If your position is different from the incumbent and the voters are vocal, the time is right. Go for it!!
Attend all meetings in your area and speak out. Talk to any group which will have you. Talk to
individuals on the street, in stores or anywhere you encounter them. Set a goal to meet every voter in
your district. You can’t, of course, but don't stop trying.
A few friends willing to use their phone to make calls to local voters will fill the need for a phone bank
(no charge). Several can get together at each home or office and have fun while taking turns making
calls. You will, of course, have to purchase signs and campaign literature. If you have a friend in the
business, great. If not, these can be purchased from a mail-order house at reasonable rates.
The rest is up to you. State your position honestly, forcefully and often. You must sell not only your
ideas but yourself. Don't be afraid to say "I don't know, but if you will tell me how to contact you I will
find out and get back with you "then do it!" Point out differences between you and your opponent but
always do this in a positive manner. Never make negative remarks about your opponent. Instruct your
campaign, workers that they are never to say anything negative about them. Stick to the issues. Get
your views before all the voters possible. A good way to end each speech is to encourage people to
vote. Example: "I want to thank each of you for attending this meeting and giving me the opportunity to
express my views. It is extremely important that each of you vote in this election. I encourage each of
you to vote, even if you choose to vote for my opponent. Only if you all vote can the winner truly be the
choice of the people. If any of you are not registered to vote we have voter registration cards here
which you can fill out tonight or take home with you." Don’t use a prepared speech. Speak from the
heart and you will probably touch hearts.
Having won your 1st elective office you have realized the true American Dream. You have become
someone who can make a difference using hard work and the help of friends, rather than money. The
Five Steps are now complete but your journey has just begun.
Congratulations - Good Luck - God Bless
Having taken these five steps you have now lived up to your duty under the Constitution. If you have
convinced enough friends to make this journey with you, you have just returned control of this state to
Thanks to NCOM, MRF, Senator Dave Durenberger, Jesse McDugald and all the MRO Leaders from
across the country who have inspired me. Thanks to all or members who have carried the load and
made our Association Successful.....

9. 2003 in Review
TMRA ll started off the New Year with our state secretary, Cyndi, absent from her duties due to cancer.
We were also in tough financial condition and had moved the office out of Austin to Elgin in a cost
cutting effort. Though less expensive this was a far better location for our needs. The office space was
much larger and we had an acre of land completely fenced.
We sponsored "LEGISLATIVE DAY 2003" on the 4th Monday as usual. We had a really good turnout
and were well accepted by the legislators as usual. That was the last day that anything happened, as
usual, during the 2003 session.
Riders passed out the position papers for our issues during Legislative Day. The Association had
chosen to once again go with the Equal Access Bill that had been vetoed by Rick Perry in the Father's
Day Massacre. Rep. Glen Lewis again carried our Bill and introduced HB625 on Jan. 30th. . This was
word for word the same as HB 259 from the 2001 session. On Feb.3rd Senator Armbrister introduced
SB 350, the companion Bill to HB625. It was read and sent to Jurisprudence. This was our first hint that
all was not on the up and up. Each time our Equal Access Bill had been sent to Business and
Commerce. This time our sponsor was on that committee and quick action was a certainty but it was
shifted to Jurisprudence. HB625 was read and sent to Civil Practices on Feb. 12th. By the end of
February we had well in excess of 2/3 of the House members pledged to support HB 625 including all
members of the Civil Practices Committee except the Chair, Joe Nixon and member Mike Krusee. Both
had opposed us last session.
Another issue was the Failure To Yield Bill. Da'Lady, Rep. Norma Chavez, introduced HB931, the
Failure To Yield Bill on Feb. 12th. It was named the Tom DeLoach Bill in honor of a man killed in a
failure to yield wreck while enroute to the Tarrant County Toy Run. This Bill received 1st reading on
Feb. 19th and was sent to Transportation. Mike Krusee was chairman of that committee. Our two
opponents in the House were now Chairman of our two Bills. The Senate Bill had been switched to a
committee chaired by another Foe. Still your chairman continued to work to line up votes without
expressing his concerns with anyone but our Senate Sponsor.
March 5th HB625 was heard in committee. Only 30 riders attended that hearing. Despite there being no
opposing testimony and with Chairman Nixon knowing that we had the votes to pass out of committee,
through Calendars and pass on the Floor that day, he held our Bill in Committee.
And finally we planned an attempt to correct the HIPAA fiasco at the state level as recommended by
Federal Health Commissioner Tommy Thompson. After much collaboration between Mike Alvey and
Rep Burnum's staff, he introduced our insurance Bill on March 11th. That Bill was read on March 15th
and sent to Insurance committee.
Now understand there were plenty of issues to take up our time at the capitol besides just gathering
votes for our Bills. We had learned that the budget crunch had taken an $182,000 bite out of our Rider
Training Budget. We met with Clif Burdett, head of the DPS Motorcycle Safety Division, and asked that
he work out a proposed budget for the needs of the Safety Course in the next Biennium. With this in
hand we presented our request to the Appropriations Committee and to the Sub Committee that would
work on our part of the budget. Fortunately one of our Warriors, Rep Dan Ellis, was on that sub
committee. We asked that he help shepherd our request through and keep us posted. After a few
weeks he let us know our request had been locked in.
Also HB226 had been pre-filed on November 11th. It was read and sent to Law Enforcement on Feb.
6th. That Bill would allow for RoadBlocks to be set up on the highways and streets to supposedly check
for alcohol consumption. Of course the sponsor knew that would allow for searches without probable
cause. The courts had ruled a RoadBlock is a form of arrest or detainment so no cause was required to
conduct a search. Luckily chairman Keel is a true law and order man and Rep. Hupp was also on that
committee. She is also a strong constitutionalist. That meant we were half way to killing this Bill as long
as we paid attention. That Bill came to hearing on March 17th. Your chairman testified that those men
and women who have fought and died to free other countries and those currently in Iraq fighting to free
those people weren't doing so to come back to a Totalitarian government reminiscent of Nazi Germany.
Immediately after the hearing all members of the committee were visited to push the issue. We
received promises of no votes from two members who asked that we not say anything. One said he
was reasonably sure he would vote no. Any two of these along with Reps Keel and Hupp guaranteed
the Bill would die. On March 17th the Bill failed to receive votes for passage out of committee. It was
Rep Keel had asked that we lend a hand with killing HB901. This Bill was introduced by Rep King et al
and would allow cameras to be placed in signal lights. Though we did not testify against the Bill we did
take every opportunity to address the Bill's shortcomings as we went about our regular duties. It was a
hard fought battle to stop HB901. After being heard twice and substituted as many times the Bill finally
came out of committee and was sent to the House Floor. It was a thing of joy to watch outright
confrontation when called for and finesse when deemed appropriate by the opponents of this Bill and
finally on April 28th it was ruled dead.
Back on the senate side we could find no reason for joy. HB945, by Senator Ogden was making
progress. This Bill was nothing short of the Federal ID card that President Bush had asked congress for
and been turned down. It was decided that with our plate full from our Bills at the present time we would
tend to business and try to stop the Bill in the House if it got that far. It Did.
Chairman Duncan of the Jurisprudence Committee promised a favorable hearing on SB350 when we
met with him on that one. By the 1st of March we showed him a list of 23 Ayes garnered from the
senators. More than enough votes for passage from the committee and on the Floor. Still he held our
Bill. On April 17 we met with his legislative director to ask if Duncan was following the governor's orders
by not bringing SB350 to a vote. She said the governor had not mentioned the Bill to Duncan, the Bill
hadn't moved because the sponsor didn't have the votes to pass the Bill. I told her she was a damned
liar that I had carded the votes and given them to our sponsor and Duncan personally. We were told
that didn't count, the sponsor had to give them to Duncan. She was informed that has never before
been the case. Her final word was all the votes had to be reaffirmed to count. We fooled her ass. By
10:30am that day we had cards from each of the senator's offices and written on the back was Yes
The Tom DeLoach Bill was proving to be a hard sell, primarily because there was very little support
from other riders. Where we were accustomed to gleaning 10-15 supporters each day of walking the
halls, this time we were averaging 2-5 votes each 10-12 hour day. By mid March we had enough votes
to call for a hearing. Chairman Krusee ignored our request until April 22nd. Only 6 riders joined your
chairman for this one. We had received lip service from lots of riders but when the time came to
produce it proved to be just that. Again with no opposition and the chair knowing the votes were there
HB931 was held in committee.
Once again the request went out for calls to Krusee and Nixon. This time the request was honored and
both men asked your chairman to stop the calls; our Bills would be voted out the next week. Both men
lied. They each said the Bills would be voted out the following week and only Chairman Krusee kept his
word. With only one rider for support HB 931 was voted out by a 7-0 vote. We had spent 19 hours and
14 minutes inside the capitol walking, talking and waiting to see this happen.
Met with Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson in the hall and told him what was going on. He said to
email him a request for intervention and he would talk to Rick Perry. The email was sent and
acknowledged but as of April 27th there has been no results. Commissioner Patterson also said he
would talk to Duncan about SB350. No word from that angle either.
HB2262, our insurance Bill, was scheduled to be heard at 8:00am on April 28th. HB2595 would require
that all new MC Licensees show proof of having taken the Rider Training Course. Originally the Bill
required all new and renewal licensees show proof of having taken the course but we worked with Rep.
Homer and got the renewals dropped from the Bill. It was scheduled to be heard on the same day but
at 2:30pm. Looked to be a pretty easy day. Not Hardly!
The Insurance Committee met at 8:00am as posted but only heard a couple of Bills and then broke to
go into session. With Mike Alvey, Dreamer and Greg in tow we cruised the Halls talking to legislators.
We had been told the Insurance hearing would start again around 3:30pm. With the infighting this
session has been noted for it was after nine before they reconvened. Since Mike had been our liaison
with Rep. Burnam's office it was decided that he would be our only speaker. Unfortunately by the time
our Bill had been called up, Mike had to head back home to go to work. Rep Burnum presented the Bill
and Sputnik spoke in favor of the Bill. Then an insurance representative, who had not even filed to
speak on the Bill, or even read the Bill, got up and testified against it. He said he would check with
Washington to see what the Federal Bill said. Chairman Smithee asked that we work out the details in
wording and he would bring it out by chair. Two days later we met with the man to see if he had carried
out his intent and he said he didn't have time for that. We contacted Mike, got the paper work and
turned it in to the chairman's staff. Next day we stopped in to see what Chairman Smithee had to say.
We were told he was on the Floor. Retrieved the papers and went out onto the Floor to find chairman
Smithee, to no avail. We left the marked papers on his desk on the House Floor and are hoping to get
the final word from him Wednesday as we only have five days to bring a Bill out of it's original
Finally got tired of the runaround and went head hunting. Went to Rep. Nixon's office and he had gone
back to Houston for family illness. Told them I would catch him upon his return. Caught up with Senator
Duncan by attending his committee meeting and sitting through the whole hearing after telling him I
wanted to talk when he adjourned the meeting. While waiting for the committee we ran across a friend
from the LLB and we were talking about SB350. He called his friend in Duncan's office and asked him
about the Bill. He was told that Duncan had indeed gone to the governor concerning the Bill and was
told to kill it. Speaking with Duncan after his meeting he again said we didn't have the votes to bring the
Bill out of committee. Once again he claimed not to have spoken with the governor or Commissioner
Patterson. We named those on the committee who had said they would vote for the Bill. The Senator
said to let him poll the members again and see what happened.
That night we called Commissioner Patterson and asked if he had talked to Duncan. He informed us
that he had indeed spoken with the man and was told the Bill would fail. Mr. Patterson said he was told
the vote on our Bill would be 3 Ayes - 3 Nays and 1 no vote. Everything Duncan had told us was a lie.
He had said to start with we could expect a favorable hearing in his committee. He had even said that
he supported the Bill. He claimed not to have spoken to the governor or Commissioner Patterson about
the Bill and had lied about that too. Next morning we were in his office before he had a chance to go
anywhere but were told he was too busy for a meeting. We let them know we would sit by his door until
he came out, as we knew he had to leave the office sometime. Shortly thereafter Duncan came out and
said we would get our hearing at the next meeting. He claimed he did not like the Bill but he liked me
and respected what I had done in the capitol. He gave a few more ass kissing lines but I let him know
he could have done that in February and there would not be so much hard feelings toward him now.
Some Warriors went to the offices of Senators Harris and Bivens. The staff in Harris's office claimed it
was just a misunderstanding on our part that the Senator would vote yes. Senator Bivens's staff were
apologetic and said the Senator would like for us to meet with the governor and work out a deal. We
had a deal, Bivens would vote for the Bill. I caught up with Senator Bivens in the hallway the day prior
to the meeting. He came over and shook my hand looking sheepish. I let him know how sad it was to
see him going against us on SB350. He said he still supports us on the helmet issue. Big Deal. I started
to talk about Equal Access and he started backing off with his hands palm out as if pushing me away.
His exact words as he turned to go on down the hall were "Sputnik, don't confuse me with facts." I told
him I will do that tomorrow.
Here I sit typing this out at 4:16am on the morning of our hearing that is scheduled for 1:30pm. We find
ourselves in a very unique position today. We will go through the ritual of a hearing knowing the exact
vote prior to the beginning. Three Democrats will vote yes, three Republicans will vote no and the
Republican Chairman will not even have the guts to cast the tie-breaking vote. So be it! This day the
entire room will hear testimony that they will remember for a long time to come. Especially the
You must understand that these people screwed up royally with their handling of the Equal Access Bill.
With the partisan politics and dirty infighting this session there will be very few Bills hit the governor's
desk. With only 20 days left in the session both Houses have only passed 62 Bills with only 11 having
been signed by the governor. In a normal session about 700 Bills would have been signed. If they had
any sense at all they would have allowed the Bill to creep slowly through the system and let it die from
lack of time. Of course if they had been men of honor the Bill would have been on the Governor's desk
by mid April. Still there will be no shame in having a Bill die this session as so many will. The shame is
on the part of those legislators who lied to us repeatedly. When a Bill is heard in committee with every
member of the committee having voted on the Bill the previous year and no opposing testimony there
can be no reason to hold it back. Still the shame is theirs and not ours.
What a sham the hearing on SB350 turned out to be. The only member of the committee there was
Chris Harris. He listened to other Bills and passed them out of committee with no questions asked. He
held SB 350 in committee again with no questions asked. He accused us of having gone over the line
with our threats to him. Of course he was just trying to find a way to blame his sucking up to the
governor on us so as to absolve himself of wrongdoing. No way Chris! You lied and sold out with no
help from us and the shame is all yours.
Today the shit hit the fan!!! Congressman Tom DeLay reportedly gave Speaker Craddick a redrawn
map to change Congressional Districts again. The map was reportedly hidden from the Democrat
Representatives until someone allegedly stole a copy from the briefcase of an Aide to Speaker
Craddick. A Bill was pushed through the redistricting committee and scheduled for a Floor vote today.
Nearly all Democrat Reps filed a letter with the Speaker stating they would be absent from the Floor on
Monday. Most had gone to Ardmore Okla. To keep the House from seating a quorum thereby killing all
House Bills that had not already been voted out. The Speaker of course could have called for any Bills
he wished to be brought back on the Floor once the Democrats returned despite time having elapsed.
He chose not to do that so all our Bills have died.
Back in the capitol on Monday we met with Monica to see if there was any way to possibly save HB931.
Maybe this will be a chance to learn a new technique in our dealings with the legislature. We have
searched through a lot of Bills (thanks to Rebecca Hollingshead for her assistance in this matter) and
have chosen SB 660 by Senator Ogden to try and attach HB931 to if it goes onto the House Floor. To
attach a Bill to another the two must be germane. Both these Bills were heard in the House
Transportation Committee, SB660 seeks an increase in the penalty for speeding while HB931 seeks an
increase in the penalty for failure to yield. If the senate Bill gets to the Floor we shall give it a shot. This
would be another first for us. Finally we are devoid of any hope for the survival of HB931 as SB660 has
died as we prepared an amendment.
The state took our dedicated funds for Rider Training. This Fund is paid by bikers only. We had to fight
like hell to get our fund rededicated saving nearly $3 1/2 million for rider training. The battle with
National Highway Traffic Safety Association is an ongoing one. They are still trying to get the Feds to
pass a federal mandate requiring all states to have a helmet law. We are currently locked in battle with
the Environmental Protective Agency over their proposed regulations for highway bikes. These
regulations, if instituted would set guidelines that no air-cooled engine could meet. They would also
place catalytic converters under the seat. In fact their summary of the proposed regulation states, "The
only thing you could change on your bike would be chrome and paint." This would put the small
manufacturers and independent shops out of business along with the after market parts dealers. As you
can see not all problems are caused by Bills being passed or killed.
