Some of you young pups did not have the pleasure of witnessing former Vice President Spiro Agnew in action. Agnew was one of only two Vice Presidents to resign, the other being John Calhoun in 1832. Spiro's speechwriter, William Saphire, wrote Spiro's most famous phrase. Back then, the "nattering nabobs" were radicals opposed to the Vietnam War.
Who are the "nattering nabobs" today? We are those left without the political tools or opportunities to challenge two-partyism, America's political duopoly. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try, folks. Because in so doing we can identify other like-minded nabobs and try our best to transform the political landscape into something positive.
LIV is working to unite the several million Texans who identify as independents, those with no party affiliation.
What independent voters stand for is up for grabs. LIV wants to make sure that the "grabs" are for policies that sustain our resources (especially water and land) and our democracy.
LIV is seeking new Board Members, Advisors and Members.
