    I want you voting and influencing 'cause this man is trying to crush us with his wallet.


    I will tell you this guy is slime and unashamed. He is buying forgiveness from the black folks he targeted mercilessly just a few years ago. His ad buy announcing his event at Houston's Buffalo Soldier Museum where he is throwing in a fleet of free food truck vendors to feed folks was enormous - I'm talking hundreds of plays on black radio per day.

    If you appreciate Traditional Texas Values and miss a chance to vote in support of these values - I will blame YOU.

    Welp... Looks like Bloomberg is going to attack Texas with three times more funding than he spent in Virginia.

    I'm a life long Texan. Almost all of my family was born and raised here and a majority of them spent all, or most of their lives here. The only reason I wasn't born here, is because I was born on an Air Force base in Panama.

    That said, I will NOT abandon Texas. However, I'm not too confident that we won't allow this to happen. Us conservatives and republicans just don't work hard enough and don't mobilize enough to beat these lunatics. We take too much shit from the left. Maybe it's because we are naturally peace loving, forgiving, and have jobs, whereas they are unemployed, love to start shit, and once they lock on to some cry baby "cause", they bite down hard and do what it takes to accomplish their tyranny. Even if it means breaking laws. Therefore, our morals and honor makes it increasingly hard to fight back, let alone hold em off.

    Get your asses out and VOTE. Mail, email, call, go down and SPEAK to your representatives. Some of use here are getting real sick of carrying the load for some of you who bitch and whine about politics and rights, but do nothing. Sick of the "gonna stay home this election" state of mind just because you want to be 100% satisfied. I almost feel like we're not only fighting for our rights against the left, but also about 60% of our own side. Bunch of quitters and cowards.

    Look, if this doesn't apply to you, good. Please don't fill the thread with needless defensive posts if you know this is not you. If this does apply to you, GOOD. Please don't fill this thread with your excuses and cowardice ideology.

    I ****'n love this state, sometimes I wonder if I love it more than the US as a whole. I know it was blue once, but that was before the left became socialist, nihilistic perverts who will be violent and worst of all, are gun'n to take our second amendment harder than ever. So if you're not going to do your part to combat what Bloomberg is setting into motion, BIG middle finger to ya. Last, on behalf of my children, who's freedom you will willingly take part in flushing down the toilet along with your spine, kiss my ass.

    Ah shit... I ranted like a woman going through menopause. Sorry about that.

    Please guys, let's band together and do everything in our power, collectively and individually, to stop this. Once Texas goes blue, and if they get any gun control bills passed, it's going to be next to impossible to undo. So let's just preempt it.

    God bless

    Wife and I are voting today. Have my mail in ballot right here in front of me. Don't forget the 10 propositions. Vote yes on all.

    We can't sit back and cross our fingers and hope. VOTE! Do not think what happened in Virginia can't happen here.

    I voted. Not sure that term limits are necessarily a good thing so I abstained on that proposal. Yes, I am not a fan of crappy lifetime politicians, but I still mostly believe it is up to the people to vote them in or out

    If you value traditional American values you should vote against Bloomberg.

    Term limits only work when they apply to everyone.
    Otherwise you’re giving away political power to states that lack them.

    Don’t mean to insult anyone’s intelligence but just to kinda state the obvious, those ten propositions aren’t to establish any law(s).

    They’re just to help the Party establish ‘planks’ in it’s Party Platform. IOW, they are more like “survey” questions to find out what the members of the Party think should be the “official” position of the {Republican} Party in Texas, on some given topic. This was the TEXAS state-level Party Primary vote; so the proposition/survey ONLY effects the TEXAS Party position on the topic. For instance, the question on Term Limits would apply to the Republican Party fielding questions on the state legislature. The Republican Party of Texas may be able to report up to the RNC, the results are representative of Texas Republicans’ belief on national Term Limits too, but it would only represent our Texas point-of-view (not other states).

    I haven’t looked, but I’d guess the Texas Democrat Party had “proposition” {survey} questions on their ballot too (albeit, different questions...I’m sure).
