So there were 1,446,008 votes cast of the approximately 13 million registered Republican voters. Not a very big turn out if you ask me, even with the GOP testing out a few propositions that are telling signs as to whether you’re a “real” Republican or not. (i.e. abortion, God in the town square)
Anyway… you can see the language of the propositions here.
The one that just has me absolutely dumbfounded though is the voting result for this one.
Ballot Prop 4: Public acknowledgment of God
The result was ninety-five percent! That’s right… 95% of those 1.4 million votes cast voted yes!
Ok. C’mon now. I know y’all think you really want this but you don’t. You really, really don’t want to be Afghanistan in Christian clothing.
Of course there are some who would gladly let go of the 1st Ammendment.
this is painful and embarrassing to watch.
Hey kids… I’ve got a GREAT idea!!! Let’s make Texas a Theocracy!
Apparently the Republicans are testing the waters towards taking Texas in this direction with Ballot Prop 4 in the primary to see how it would go in the general election.
I think I’ll have to file this one in the “be careful what you wish for category”.
I mean c’mon, how are are the right-wing theocratic, Christofascists going to react when it’s reported that a Muslim kid starts the morning prayer at school by saying, “Allahu Akbar. Subhana rabbiyal adheem. Subhana Rabbiyal A’ala. Allahu Akbar.”
I’ll tell ya how… they’ll crap themselves.
You know, I know Texas has some idiots in public office but how a dumb ass like Don McLeroy has been in public office of anything let alone education for even one term is beyond me.
So in response to idiots like McLeroy, I went to the polls today, cast my vote and said NO!
