Is it possible to import a text file which contain plot coordinates and have the plot coordinates plotted automatically by LibreCad?

I think the Read ascii points plugin is what you are looking for.

Thanks.  I looked at that awhile back, and wondered if there wasn't a more direct and simpler way.  Have you used this method?

No, I had not, never had a use case for this plugin.
If the plugin is too inconvenient for you, have a look at this:
http://forum.librecad.org/Key-Mode-Load-Command-File-Paste-Multiple-Commands-tp5716611p5716614.html
Most information for Load Command File and Paste Multiple Commands are linked in my reply there.
I think the first version with these features was 2.1.2

Hello Armin!

With regard to subject plugin:  LibreCAD manual, accessed via LibreCAD "Help" menu,  shows an interesting example, at very end,  on how to plot text file coordinates.  Here is a screen shot of the plugin as noted in the example.  I've followed the example's instruction, and the result prints a single line of garble at the bottom of LibreCAD work area.  I copied an pasted text list noted in the example and saved it as a text file (.odt).  Created a layer and named it (t1).  NOW!  I go to File - Import ( Verision 2.1.2) gives two options to import, Image or Block.   Any ideas!  Thanks Armin.
