Michael Cooper – Entrepreneur – Automotive Executive - Civil Rights Advocate & Man of Great Faith
Michael is the consummate business man. In fact, he has been in business since he was 16 years of age, Michael was credited with landing the contract for over a 100,000 dollars per year with his newly established lawn & maintenance company. The old saying, “father like son” comes to mind, because Michael followed in his mother and father’s foot step’s as business people. Although his father only had a 6th grade education and his mother had to drop out of high school at an early age to assist her single parent mother with the bills. Both parents gave Michael the necessary tools he needed to be successful.
Michael loves knowledge and it shows as he will complete his Masters in psychology in 2018. He has a passion for people and the community as he continues to plant Churches and work with civil rights workers in the community to decrees the violence that is suffocating prosperity through-out our great State of Texas.
Michael is a family man that loves movie night with his wife and 4 children. He loves riding his bicycle, working out and reading the bible. He can catch him on his day off working around the house and playing with his two dog’s.
Michael’s platform is Education, Education, Education. He says the way out of social economic disparities, is education. He says we need to teach and not teach toward testing, back to the basic’s. He says we need to secure and grow good quality teachers, by increasing teacher pay and securing a good retirement program for them. We need computers in the classrooms not books and not backpacks. They are to heavy and out of date.
We need to reform and change the legal and justice system in Texas so it can be equal for all not some.
Michael’s father passed away from complication’s due to lung cancer, because of poor health care. Affordablehealth care is a necessity and should not only be for the privileged. Affordable health care is one of the many things that Michael will fight for you and all families in Texas for.

Why should supporters of the Texas Nationalist Movement support your candidacy?
I believe in the Independence of the State - especially the State of Texas. Just like California decided to legalize Marijuana and did. The State should be able to stand on their own decisions without the influence of the federal Government. Even though it is illegal to make Marijuana legal on the federal Government level it was made legal on the State level. The State always have the right to do what is right for its people, even though other States choose different.
