OUR CAMPAIGN IS OFFICIALLY ON THE BALLOT!

Acceptance - Luecke.jpg

 

The Luecke for Congress Campaign is all

about fixing problems in Texas and America

 

Choose a category: education, health care, climate change, mass media, elections, infrastructure, food production, corporate monopolies, drug policy, incarceration, mass transit, poverty, foreign policy.

America is like a 200 year old house that needs to be fixed all over the place.    

I propose that we start by improving the economy for the middle class and build a renewable energy infrastructure which would create half a million jobs in Texas, pay land holders to rent access to their fields for wind and solar farms, and benefit American energy consumers with a product that is continually decreasing in cost and will soon be cheaper than natural gas.

LARGE INVESTORS ARE GETTING OUT OF FOSSIL FUELS AND MOVING TO RENEWABLE ENERGY.  

OIL IS ABOUT TO BE HISTORY.

 

  HARVEST ENERGY ON YOUR LAND   I will introduce to congress the Solar feed in tariff law which would pay $.54 per kilowatt hour.  A five megawatt field can produce almost $3,000 a day, $90,000 on a good month, and almost a million dollars a year in a sunny place like Texas.  Former Texas Governor Rick Perry did a similar scheme building $7 billion worth of high tension power lines for the wind industry and now Texas leads the nation in wind energy production.

  EVEN THE WIND IS BIGGER IN TEXAS!    Wind will provide half of all renewable energy in Texas in the future, which will be more than most countries.

BUILDING A RENEWABLE ENERGY GRID CREATES MILLIONS OF AMERICAN JOBS

In Texas alone we could create over half a million green jobs that last 40 years.  Check out the clean energy map at The Solutions Project to see all the future savings to Texans, including health care.
