The war between the two parties is putting our democracy at risk -- not to mention fundamentals like our land and water.
If you agree with us, please accept this invitation to join the independent movement to do something about it!
Our Land, Our Water, Our Democracy Lobby Day
Here's what we'll be talking about with our legislators:
Democracy is not a game: Most voters agree the gamesmanship between the two parties is not only stifling innovation, it is harming small “d” democracy – the ability to build consensus in our country. In Texas, ballot access petition reform would allow independent, non-aligned candidate and minor party competition. It’s called the Texas Voter Choice Act.
►We must also defend the right to petition for municipal voter referenda – real local control – currently under attack by municipal lobby machines -- this news piece tipped their hand. If you live in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Plano or any municipality where citizens collected signatures this year, you really need to be at this Lobby Day!
►Saying NO to the California Water Model: Private water speculators are hijacking the State Water Plan via “Gridzilla,” a water grid mimicking California’s over-pumping and costly transfer of groundwater from distant locations for real estate development. Pass the Sustainable Groundwater Development Act to protect our aquifers, landowners, ratepayers and future generations.
Happy Valentines Day, y'all.
