Texas Has Some Interesting Ballot Measures Coming Up

Wonder how this would play nationally:

“These ballot propositions are Texas Republicans’ chance to be heard on issues facing our state,” said Republican Party of Texas Chairman Cathie Adams. “All five of the propositions came up from the grassroots through the SREC to address serious concerns. Voters should study the questions and then use their vote to speak directly to their elected officials.”

Noting that the Democrats have no propositions on their primary ballot, Republican Party spokesman Bryan Preston added: “Apparently the Democrats don’t want to know what their primary voters think about, say, ObamaCare or the cap and tax bill. If they put those questions on the ballot, they might find out that their own primary voters are just as disenchanted with Washington Democrats as the rest of us. Or, that they’re still on the big government bandwagon — and therefore out of touch with the rest of Texas. So in their case, apparently it’s best just not to ask.”

The five ballot propositions are as follows:

Ballot Proposition #1: Photo ID

The Texas legislature should make it a priority to protect the integrity of our election process by enacting legislation that requires voters to provide valid photo identification in order to cast a ballot in any and all elections conducted in the State of Texas.

YES or NO

Ballot Proposition #2: Controlling Government Growth

Every government body in Texas should be required to limit any annual increase in its budget and spending to the combined increase of population and inflation unless it first gets voter approval to exceed the allowed annual growth or in the case of an official emergency.

YES or NO

Ballot Proposition #3: Cutting Federal Income Taxes

In addition to aggressively eliminating irresponsible federal spending, Congress should empower American citizens to stimulate the economy by Congress cutting federal income taxes for all federal taxpayers, rather than spending hundreds of billions of dollars on so-called “federal economic stimulus”.

YES or NO

Ballot Proposition #4: Public Acknowledgement of God

The use of the word “God”, prayers, and the Ten Commandments should be allowed at public gatherings and public educational institutions, as well as be permitted on government buildings and property.

YES or NO

Ballot Proposition #5: Sonograms

The Texas Legislature should enact legislation requiring a sonogram to be performed and shown to each mother about to undergo a medically unnecessary, elective abortion.

YES or NO

The primary vote is March 2, 2010.

These ballot measures are like a conservative cornucopia of goodness. Do you think they’d pass nationally?
