Today is Election Day, Texas! Go and vote on the constitutional amendments! Remember, please, Mamas, that a constitutional amendment is a thing more permanent than a mere ordinance or bill. I think it behooves us not to enshrine anything in our constitution that limits the rights or the future of our citizens.
On that note, please do not vote to increase homestead exemption from school taxes. Vote against that first proposition on the state constitutional ballot that steals money from our children's education and therefore their futures and takes away the choice to put the money back later. Far too much funding has already been taken away from Texas schools. Our children need well-funded schools. Our democracy does.
