Day Five: I am thankful for VOTING 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I took my daughter with me to hit the polls today. 10 important propositions we’re on the ballots for Texans to consider. I am so saddened that people often miss these elections because it isn’t presidential, therefore not important. Remember y’all: the president might sit in the big chair in the oval office, but so much MORE happens in our state and local governments that goes unnoticed until it’s too late! Take a look at the Austin American Statesman for a run down of what is on the ballot today.
Below is my Facebook update from earlier. It includes my top 3 reasons for voting today. While each of the 10 proposition are important, these were no-brainer’s in my book. As for the others, I do believe I probably hold some unpopular opinions on some things so I will discuss those as inquired.
If you didn’t vote, don’t complain about the outcomes! You LITERALLY had your chance!

Naomi and I just voted! That’s right, I took my toddler with me. What’s your excuse? Get informed! Here’s what’s on the ballot: https://www.statesman.com/news/20191021/everything-you-need-to-know-about-10-state-props-on-november-ballot
My Top 3 Things to Share:
The wording on Proposition 4 is TO PROHIBIT a state income tax. Therefore, to vote AGAINST a state income tax you must vote in favor of Proposition 4.
Did you know state parks are supposed to already be getting money from sales tax on sporting goods? This is to “dedicate a revenue”, meaning a guarantee that the tax we already pay at a sporting good store will go toward state parks and historic sites (like it’s supposed to). Vote in favor of Proposition 5! YOU ARE ALREADY PAYING THE SAME TAX WHEN YOU BUY FROM A SPORING GOODS STORE.
I don’t know about you, but if I built a bond with a dog or horse and was told I couldn’t continue to care for it when it retires, I’d be devastated…and so would the animal! Vote in favor of Proposition 10 so that retired law enforcement dogs and horses can be adopted by their handlers.
