VOTE

To those of my fellow citizens who have not voted yet: please do so! Despite the false claims that our votes don’t count, they will only not count if we don’t cast them to begin with. Also, please reconsider your blind loyalty to the Re- publican Party. They have clearly stated that they want to restrict your Social Security and Medicare benefits, which you have paid for throughout your entire working life. If you aren’t counting on these benefits yet, you will be soon enough. The Republicans openly support school vouchers, which will further drain money from our vital public schools. They continue to try to kill Obamacare, but they have nothing to replace it with. They refuse to expand Medicaid benefits even though the federal government will pay 90% of the cost. They definitely do NOT have your back if you are a hardworking rural Texan who struggles to pay all the growing bills. The Republicans speak openly about tax cuts, which will not benefit you at all, but they will certainly benefit the mega-wealthy donors who finance their campaigns. Democrats are not perfect, but they don’t turn a blind eye to those who are hurting and discouraged.

Republicans claim, or used to claim, that they believe in “limited government”. Did you know that Greg Abbott extended the COVID disaster designation not because he thinks it exists, but so he can prevent local governments from making their own decisions? Do you like having the State with you in your doctor appointments and in your bedroom? Please consider voting for some Democratic candidates so they can show you how Texas can do better! If not for yourself, do it for your kids and grandkids.
