Wolf-PAC Texas is a grassroots, 100% volunteer, nonpartisan organization dedicated to restoring a true representative government back to the people. We have a dual mission of working to pass the Restore Our Republic Resolution in the Texas Legislature and direct-to-voter outreach to inform Texas voters on their State Legislators' positions on campaign finance reform.
We are regular citizens (just like you) from across the political spectrum who are fed up with powerful special interests and economic elites dictating the policies Congress imposes on the citizens of our state and our country. We’re here to take our representative democracy back for ourselves and future generations of free Americans.
In poll after poll Texans say "corruption and leadership" is the most important issue facing our country today, 85% of Americans believe candidates promote policies that benefit their donors, and a whopping 98% believe our system of campaign finance is in need of reform, with almost half saying our system of funding campaigns is so flawed that we need to completely rebuild it. (Poll data from Texas Tribune/Univ. of Texas polls 2018, 2017, 2016, and NY Times/CBS News poll 2015)
This is a constitutional problem requiring a constitutional solution. We must add an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that ensures elections are free from corrupting influences and fair enough that all citizens can meaningfully participate in the electoral process. Only an amendment can protect state and federal campaign finance reform laws.
Amending the U.S. Constitution is hard. It should be hard. We don't take this lightly. Only the most reasonable, necessary and popular amendments will ever be ratified and become part of the Constitution.
The proven and effective way to get an amendment is by states applying for a limited convention to propose an amendment as prescribed by Article V of the U.S. Constitution. Fourteen of our 27 amendments began with states applying for a convention, and that pressure from the states forced Congress to act and propose the amendment(s) themselves.
Our efforts are solely focused on this single issue of campaign finance reform because it is the root cause that affects every other issue. We welcome everyone who wants to fight for our constitutional republic to join us. It doesn’t matter whether you are a conservative, liberal, Democrat, Republican or Independent; your voice is being drowned out by special interests, billionaires and dark money SuperPACs - and together, we can get it back.
Wolf-PAC Texas was founded in 2012, just before the 83rd Texas Legislature. In 2013 we were the first state in the history of the United States to introduce a joint-resolution calling for an Article V convention to address our national system of campaign finance. In 2015 and 2017 we had bipartisan joint-authors for the resolution. Make no mistake: passing legislation in Texas isn’t easy. Great things rarely are. But the good news is you can make a difference and be part of this historic movement to restore balance and integrity to our elections and our government. You don’t need money, you don’t need a lot of time, whatever you can bring to the effort matters. Because with each of us doing a little bit, and a few doing a little more, we’ll win the fight to Restore Our Republic.
