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.
We are dedicated to safe guarding individual liberty, protecting personal privacy and property rights, election integrity, safe water, and electing representatives, not bureaucrats, to office!
Michael Cargill has spent the last decade championing and supporting the rights of law abiding Texans to exercise all of their constitutional rights. He is a business owner in Austin, TX.
News organizations throughout the country have recognized his excellence in his business practices and the passion he has for his field by featuring him as a frequent guest and subject matter expert. He has achieved national exposure in such prestigious media outlets as Forbes Magazine, Fox Business News, CNN Money, AOL, BBC World News, Huffington Post and the New York Times. His concern for local safety has led to features on local affiliates of Fox News, ABC News, NBC News, and YNN. With each appearance, Cargill vigorously defends lawful gun ownership in this country without regard to party politics.
His mission is to help TAG organize and mobilize its membership to effectively influence elections and change Texas policy.
Seven steering committee members are elected once per year by our membership.
