Putting together my mail-in vote I noticed that there was another page of ballot propositions.
Proposition 8: Right to housing: Should everyone in Texas have the right to affordable and accessible housing and modern utilities including high speed Internet, free from any form of discrimination?
If the issue is discrimination I would vote yes. I don’t believe that high speed Internet is a right.
Proposition 9: Right to vote: Should every eligible Texan have the right to vote, made easier by automatic voter registration, the option to vote by mail, a state election holiday, and no corporate campaign influence, foreign interference, or illegal gerrymandering?
A state election holiday?–how about Saturday? No corporate campaign influence?–they need to take this up with the supreme court.
Proposition 10: Right to a fair criminal justice system: Should everyone in Texas have the right to a fair criminal justice system that treats people equally and puts an end to the mass incarceration of young people of color for minor offenses?
Proposition 11: Immigrant rights: Should there be a just and fair comprehensive immigration reform solution that includes an earned path to citizenship for law abiding immigrants and their children, keeps families together, protects dreamers, and provides workforce solutions for businesses.
Law abiding?–which laws?
Proposition 12: Right to fair taxation: Should everyone in Texas have the right to a fair tax system, were all interests (business, corporations, and individuals) pay their share, so that state government meets its obligations?
Do they really mean “all”. What obligations?
We deserve better
