Republican Referenda - Primary 2014

Republican referendums:
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM  - Texans should be free to express their religious beliefs, including prayer, in public places.

SECOND AMENDMENT -  Texas should support Second Amendment liberties by expanding locations where concealed handgun license-holders may legally carry.

FRANCHISE TAX - Texas should abolish the state franchise tax, also known as the margins tax, to encourage business growth.

WELFARE REFORM -  Texas recipients of taxpayer-funded public assistance should be subject to random drug testing as a condition of receiving benefits.

NO LAWMAKER EXCEPTIONS -  All elected officials and their staff should be subject to the same laws, rules, regulations, and ordinances as their constituents

The Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," should be repealed.

    This is pretty much something that the Rightwing Crazies, Tea Party Folks, Country Club Hootsey-Snootseys, and Libertartian Elephants can pretty much come together over.   One does remember, however George Herbert Walker Bush telling a reporter, ''I'm a conservative, but I'm just not going to be crazy about it!''
     We are well past the point when we can continue to be reasonable with our basic liberties and budget matters in the American Republic.  The only "reasonable" position is one that totally eschews any thought of further debt tolerance or deficit spending.
