Texans for Accountable Government

Texans for Accountable Government (TAG) is a trans-partisan Political Action Committee headquartered in Central Texas. TAG was formed with the ambition of reigning in the intrusive and expanding reach of government which threatens to invade every facet of our lives. Our ambition is to put the reins of government back into the hands of individual American citizens; allowing us to once again run our own lives.

TAG focuses on issues at the local, county, and state level. We believe in the principle of subsidiary; that power should be vested in the nearest locality. Our local representatives are much more accountable to us than are those over a thousand miles away in the District of Columbia.

Humanize with office holders and law enforcement. Letting these individuals know that we are real people who care about our community and our rights opens hearts and minds. Harmonize with individuals and organizations that you may not always agree with. It’s important that when we can come together, we do. For some projects TAG is more likely to work with the “left” while with other it’ll be the “right”. Localize our efforts by working on city, county, and state level policy. We have seen the United State government trample on our individual rights for decades. Even with more citizen involvement than ever before, they continue to push, in a bi-partisan fashion, away from the Free country established by our Founding Fathers. At the local/state level, we have much more of an impact on public policy.
