Ghost talks about some of Representative Smith's bills.

Starting in February of 2012, Ghost has begun hosting a Viral Video Campaign to have Lamar Smith unelected from office. Ghost is offering anyone who makes an anti-Lamar Smith video and gives credit to the Capitalist Army a follow from his Twitter account.

Calling True Capitalist Radio and speaking in support of Lamar Smith became a reasonably effective method of trolling Ghost, as did pro-Lamar Smith Twitter names ("Reseat Lamar Smith", "Lamar Smith 2012").

Because of Smith's support for internet regulation, Ghost supported Lamar Smith's rival, Sheriff Richard Mack (often known simply as "Sheriff Mack"), in the Republican primary for the House election in Smith's congressional district. Smith wound up winning the primary, as well as his reelection against Democratic candidate Candice Duvall in November 2012.
