Turn Texas Blue? Look What They Put On the 2020 Ballot

The following is from Reform Austin. Check out the Democrat wish list if they can flip the state. These items appeared on the Democrat primary ballot. No doubt these changes would destroy the Lone Star State in short order.

Texas has open primaries. This means any eligible registered voter can vote in either one of the two primaries, Democrat or Republican. If you vote in a primary, you are only eligible to vote in that same party’s primary runoff. If you did not vote in the primary, you can vote in any party’s primary runoff. In addition to candidates on the ballot, Texans will find nearly a dozen propositions come March 3 (or sooner if they vote early). 

Each party’s state executive committee decides in the prior year what propositions they want on their primary’s ballot. Voters will agree or disagree with the props by selecting yes or no.

“Party ballot propositions are used to get a sense of the opinions of the most active party members at the ballot box,” University of Houston Political Science Professor Brandon Rottinghaus told Reform Austin

Following are the ballot propositions:

Proposition 1: Right to Health Care
