I don't normally post about politics, but the Texas primary election ballots are straight up wildin' y'all.
Part of the problem is that Texas primaries are segregated based on declared political party. You won't see these crazy-ass propositions on the Democrat ballot, only on the Republican one. They are pandering to the extremists in the Republican party to get these to pass without showing them to registered Democrats. If these show up on the election ballot later because they passed the primary I swear to God I might riot.
These are from the Sample Texas Primary Ballot for Republicans and are unedited. I encourage you to fact check me and go look for yourself. When I read these out loud to my (former Republican) family, they could not believe these were on the actual ballot and thought I was reading clickbait about it until I showed them I was reading off a printed sample ballot because these are so wild. ID's added in English on the Alt text of each image. My opinions in quotes under each.
Tumblr media
UM?? NO NATIONAL GUARD ON PEOPLE'S PRIVATE HOMES AND RANCHES ALONG THE BORDER PLEASE.
Tumblr media
Without ANY taxes how will government function?? Also public educators need these to have retirement because we don't contribute to or pull from Social Security?? Only Texas Teacher Retirement System?? Funded by their own incomes which come from property taxes??
Tumblr media
Im sorry,, if you support no government having a say in private business,, private businesses should be able to decide for themselves if COVID-19 vaccines are needed to operate safely and fire people who won't do it... also Texas public schools require vaccines so that students who are immunocompromised can safely attend public school!! And Texas refuses to fund schools that offer online options to public K-12 students!! What about THEIR rights to a free and appropriate public education??
Also holy shit I know CRT has become the bogeyman?? Its not taught at all in K-12 schools?? Just read the History TEKS?? Thats literally all Texas schools have time and funds to teach?? Directly to the STAAR standardized test?? Which doesn't mention this at all? And then promote teaching American exceptionalism?? American exceptionalism is literally what is wrong with our society today?? But tbh if you support parent choice in education, if I'm a theoretical parent I should get to choose if I teach my kids Marxism if I want to lmao
Tumblr media
They really want to completely ban abortion after fertilization even though we have the worst maternal-fetal death rate in the country and among the worst in the world, and we already have 40 foster children in the system to every available foster home... also, "God"? And the Bible says nothing about this? Separation of Church and State where??
Tumblr media
Holy shit?? If someone is qualified you should give them a committee chairmanship regardless of party affiliation?? This is not a war between Republicans and Democrats and you're not a traitor if you try to compromise or reach across the aisle??
Tumblr media
I thought y'all support parent choice?? Only when it supports your narrow minded views, huh? /nbh They really want to legislate helping/supporting trans kids illegal.
Tumblr media
In addition to eliminating property taxes, y'all want to kick public schools while they're down and send what meager funds they have from the state to private schools? Also I only forsee this as ensuring the rich kids with rich parents get good education to further increase the gap between rich and poor.
Tumblr media
HELLO??? SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE????
Anyway, they're all wild.
If you're in Texas and you haven't declared your political party and agree that these are batshit insane propositions, please declare "Republican" so that you can help me vote these down.
When the election rolls around after primaries, you can vote for whoever (even Democrat), and honestly they're less likely to toss out your vote if you're a registered Republican on the outside of the envelope/ballot.
TL;DR If you're in Texas please vote in the Republican Texas primaries to ensure that Texas doesn't become more of a Trumpist dystopia

Attention Texans:
Primaries are this Tuesday, March 1st!
Primary elections are where your vote counts the most, regardless of how red or blue or purple your area is.
Primaries are also where voting your conscience isn’t just a symbolic act - it actually can make a difference in kicking out a bad incumbent!
Do your research, especially on local races like school board and city council. These are the positions that impact your life and your community far more than anything at the federal level.
It’s especially important with our Governor race this year - Abbott has proved that he only cares about the issues he runs on while he’s actively campaigning.
Not to mention the fact that he shut down businesses, schools, and churches AND mandates masks.
I will never forget Easter Sunday 2020, when I attended church with just nine other people because Abbott had made gatherings of more than 10 illegal.
That’s why I’m voting for Don Huffines for Governor - pro-life, anti-lockdown, pro-secure borders, pro-2A, pro-10A, and most importantly willing to actually solve issues rather than just run on them.
Also voting for Daniel Miller for Lt. Governor - we need people who support disentangling Texas from the federal government nightmare!
Please do your research, find your sample ballot on your county election website, and make a plan for voting on 3/1.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/today-s-your-last-chance-deadline-to-register-to-vote-for-aug-23-florida-primary/ar-AAZRgY8
https://registertovoteflorida.gov/home
So today is the last day to register to vote in the Florida primaries.
I have included a link to an article explaining the basics of what to do and a link to the site where you register to vote.
Please note that this is not the last day to vote. It is the last day to register to vote. The actual election will take place August 23.
Please also note that to vote in a political party primary in Florida, you have to be a registered member of that political party.
Final note
To anyone who registers to vote today, Thank You for choosing to participate in our democracy. People like you are the reason this country will get better! You are the reason women will get control of their bodies back. You are the reason we will be able to fight back against climate change. You are the best! So Thank You!

If I have any other Ohio people on here, TODAY is the general election so if you’re registered to vote PLEASE DO!! With the news of Roe v. Wade being over turned last night, we are top of the list of states who are going to lose our reproductive rights and that’s utterly fucking terrifying. I cannot stress enough how important this is. Victims of SA, minors, incest, health complications, etc will likely be no exception to the rule. For the love of god, please vote today. And everyone else, your primary elections will be coming up sometime this summer so stay up to date on the news and register to vote if you aren’t already!
Here’s how to find your polling location!

Just because Biden won does not mean we get to give him a small pass just because he is the lesser of two evils. Accountability is key and making sure the next four year addresses the change we demand.

I don’t think I quite understood the dynamic between the candidates until now. Bernie, Elizabeth, and Joe are such grandparents. Pete is a younger brother getting a seat at the table. Beto’s the oldest brother. ...Bloomberg’s the uncle you really wish would stop coming to family reunions.
(At one point, I sat forward and put my chin on my hand in interest, just before they cut to Amy doing the same thing.)
I just.
I miss these guys. 😫

Jaime Herrera Beutler who voted to impeach Trump, is in 3rd place in her re-election to a house seat, she’s a Republican. Washington State is still counting ballots, but I’m not sure she will be able to get into 2nd place. The other two house Republicans that usually win look to be fine, but not her. Interesting. She’s losing to a Trump person so that sucks, but the Democrat has the most votes in the primary so far.
