the following info is old proposition voting info from the May 2012 Texas Election


Every two years there is a Republican Primary Election in Texas. On the Republican Primary ballot are propositions that the ENTIRE State of Texas votes on if they vote in the Texas Republican Primary. For instance, on the 2010 Primary election ballot there were propositions on the ballot regarding whether or not Texas should require voter ID, and also whether or not Texas should require sonograms before abortions. The Republican voters in Texas approved both of those propositions and the Texas Legislature went on to pass laws similar to those propositions.

Last month I sent out an email asking all fellow Republicans to tell me what propositions that they think should be on the Primary ballot in 2012. I got over 50 responses with many good proposition ideas. I sent those ideas to my fellow SREC members. On December 3rd, 2011, the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) voted to determine what propositions should be placed on the 2012 Texas Republican Primary Ballot.

There were MANY great ideas but there are a limited number of propositions that can be on the ballot.

Below are the four Ballot Propositions that were approved by the SREC to be placed on the 2012 Texas Republican Primary Election Ballot.

This is what you will see when you go to vote. The SREC also passed a 5th ballot proposition regarding redistricting, but that proposition might not need to be on the Primary Ballot now that the Redistricting battle is in the US Supreme Court.

Ballot propositions adopted at the December 3rd SREC meeting:

The state should fund education by allowing dollars to follow the child instead of the bureaucracy, through a program which allows parents the freedom to choose their child's school, public or private, while also saving significant taxpayer dollars. Yes or No.

Congress should immediately repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare) and reject the rationing of healthcare by government or the intrusion by government into the doctor - patient relationship. Yes or No.

Government should be prohibited from restricting the content of public prayer. Yes or No.

Out of control spending should be stopped at all levels of federal and state government through constitutional amendments limiting any increase in government spending to the combined increase of population and inflation without voter approval. Yes or No.


I like the free-thinking of the " 'no' to 'school choice' " poster.
Interesting comments, although unsure of them all.  It gives insight into the possibility of something well-intentioned turning sour on us.  I recently found a website called "Agabond's blog" that seems to be a black racist site, with all kinds of racist hate.  No matter who said what, it all was rejected if it espoused something other than that whites are evil devils, basically.

   I suppose that if they want to make their own schools, they can already, but this ballot proposition might help them gain ability to use OUR tax dollars to do that with!  It could also similary lead to KKK schools, on the opposite end of the racist spectrum.  So, this does present a dilemma.  How can we gain the good intended without getting the bad with it?  Any ideas?

Wow.  "over 50 responses".  Seems like a paltry turnout for legislators to base future laws on that will effect millions.  BTW, any institution receiving taxpayer money forfeits some of their constitutional rights (including speech) for that money and churches should not be exempt.  It's exactly the same as forcing welfare recipients to take drug tests.  Don't like it?  Don't take the money.

I think our Constitutional guarantees regarding religion would logically imply freedom of, OR from religion, particularly state organized religion.

The "gummint" should stay out of this.  They mess up everything they
think about.

I see you have no knowledge of that this scripture means. Our personal prayers are to be kept to ourselves. Acte2:2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.. These people were all praying in public.

Christianity is not a religion. Christianity is a loving , bonding relationship with God. The bible talks about religious is not righteous.

As a Christian that took the hard road of life.  I found that the people are misinformed by thinking Christians are perfect or thinking they are perfect.  It's actually the opposite.  We know we are Sinners and by realizing this we repent when we do.  Sometimes that doesn't happen either and we keep messing up. We are totally human and have the freedom to choose like everyone else. We know that we cannot live a Holy life without Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  Christ is the only way to the Father.  
    Also, People think the Bible is complicated. It's not.  If I can read and understand, anybody can.  God’s word is so relevant today as it was yesterday.  Four suggestions to help you get started. Find a Jesus teaching Church. They all aren't u know.  Except Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, pray every day, Read the Bible every day.  It will be the greatest decision you ever made but the hardest too.  God Bless everyone.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
