2018 Election Results

Thank you everyone for all your love and support.  

2018 was truly a great year, with your support we received the highest number of votes of ANY Libertarian Candidate in a three way race for State or Federal office in Texas.

With climbing numbers like this I'm reminded why I run, and it is because of all of you.  To get our message out there and change opinion.  Each year my platform and campaign planks become the actions and motivation the next election cycle.  So we do indeed move the needle.  4 years ago I talked about unfair Property Taxes & Schools, now that is the agenda for 2019 Legislative session.  This year I talked about fixing Pension Funds, and Healthcare, and I promise that will be the talk of the 2021 Texas Legislative session.

Without you, and your support we couldn't do it, so I sincerely thank you from my family to your's.

Thank you.

Together we can Win!

It would be a 'black eye' on Texas if state's credit is downgraded, comptroller tells lawmakers

Four years ago as the 2014 Candidate for Texas Comptroller I warned the good people of Texas this was going to happen.  Now it will because the people that were elected by Straight Party Voting don't have the qualifications to hold the offices they were elected to.  I am qualified and ready to lead.

Together we can Win!

Libertarians talk taxes, marijuana legalization and government control

By Caleb Vierkant



Ben Sanders is running for the office of state comptroller. He was unable to attend the forum but addressed the audience via webcam. He has previous work experience with the Army and at NASA. He feels that the comptroller position is a very important one for a Libertarian to be in.
“One of the interesting things I keep hearing is a repeated message about asset forfeiture and the increased wealth of these elected officials who forget their title is 'civil servant,” He said. “One of the things that the comptroller's job, in addition to the 787 other things called out in the Texas Constitution, is to be the watchdog. The comptroller is not the friend of the other politicians. The comptroller's job is to keep a watchful eye on everybody else and to make sure they're doing what they're supposed to be doing. The comptroller is one of the few politicians that works for the citizens of the state of Texas as their accountant.”
Sanders pointed out that the comptroller's job also involves not only collecting taxes but also spending it on the people's behalf. He wants to lead the office with conservative fiscal values and economic/social freedom.

Abbott Rulings an Issue in Enterprise Fund Controversy

As Texas Comptroller I promise this will NEVER happen again while I am in office. While Texas gave millions in taxpayers money to Republican donors, attorney general Greg Abbott - now a candidate for Governor - blocked the public from finding out about it. Politicians are NOT above the law. Austin is Broken, I am the man to fix it! I am qualified and ready to lead!

" a blistering state audit shows that at least five of the recipients that were named in Abbott’s 2004 rulings — and which got tens of millions of dollars from the fund — never actually submitted formal applications. And if no applications ever existed..."

More corruption in the Texas Comptroller's Office...

When are Texans going to have enough? As Comptroller I will NOT tolerate this level of corruption. More mismanagement inside the Comptroller's office, and it's a big one.

Here's what you need to know: the San Antonio Express News reporte...d that $50 million from the Major Events Trust may have been paid improperly to Formula One. And guess what: our Comptroller brokered the deal, even though a comptroller's job is to make sure deals are done right.

As the watchdog the Comptroller can't be the deal maker. If the watchdog is the deal maker, you don't have a watchdog! See for yourself - we've got work to do!

If Texas won't pay children's college, why would they pay your retirement?

If the State is willing to renege on Constitutionally mandated contracts with Children for their education and people who have 60 more years of voting. Why do you think the State will pay a retiree's pensions contracts when the funds have an unfunded liability of almost $54billion?

Texas Economy is GREAT! and I'll make sure it stays that way.

The 50 state economies, from worst to first - No. 3: Texas

Since the discovery of vast oil reserves around the turn of the 20th century, Texas has been an economic powerhouse. Energy continues to be a huge part of the Texas economy, but many industries have a large presence in the state. Here's how Texas did on our measures:

  • Texas had a 3.3 percent increase in nonfarm payroll jobs...
  • The working-age population grew by 1.3 percent
  • Exports grew by 4.1 percent to about $279 billion, solidifying Texas' lead in international exports among the states.

The truth about the Texas Budget clear and easy...

Comparison of the last budget proposal-Fiscal Year Total Spending Percentage
2012-2013 $173.5 billion
2014-2015 $195.5 billion 11.5% Increase
Percentage wise this is where your money is going, and the problem is where to take money from.  Now you can see where it is going.  What would you cut to fund something else?  The frightening thing is that the final vote on passage stood at 29-2 with only two voting no, Sen. Wendy Davis of Ft. Worth and Sen. Sylvia Garcia of Houston. 

As Comptroller I will never lie or use emotional manipulation to coerce my fellow Texans, no matter how dire the circumstances you know you will always get the truth.  My name is Ben Sanders and I want to be the next Comptroller of Texas.  I am qualified and ready to lead.
