On Tuesday, November 6, 2019, Texans voted to ban a state income tax.
Supporters of Proposition 4 declared victory right after polls closed. 74 percent of voters supported this proposition.
State Representative Jeff Leach and State Senator Pat Fallon authored Prop 4 which eliminated the possibility of Texas implementing an income tax unless the state amends its Constitution again.
This proposal was criticized by groups such as the left-leaning group Center for Public Policy Priorities, which sent out two mailers to thousands of households in Texas and ran digital ads in “targeted areas of the state”, according to a spokesman from the CPPP.
Governor Greg Abbott praised the victorious vote in a statement he made on Tuesday evening.
“Today’s passage of prop 4 is a victory for taxpayers across the Lone Star State,” he declared. “I am grateful to Representative Jeff Leach for his bold leadership on this issue, and for the overwhelming majority of Texans who voted to ensure that our great state will always be free of a state income tax. This ban on such a disastrous tax will keep our economy prosperous, protect taxpayers, and ensure that Texas remains the best state to live, work, and raise a family.”
Any change to the Texas Constitution must be approved by a majority of voters. For a proposed amendment to get on the ballot, two-thirds of both chambers of the Texas State Legislature must support this measure.
Despite a disappointing 2019 legislative session, this vote is good news for Texas conservative activists.
Texas has long built a reputation for having no income tax, which has allowed it to attract business and individuals fleeing high tax states.
By securing a vote on Prop 4, it will make it much harder for the Left to instantly implement an income tax, should they come into power. Given the changing demographics of Texas, this could be a possibility in the near future.
OUTRAGEOUS: Milwaukee Man Who was Defending His Home from a Leftist Mob is Arrested
A Milwaukee man was arrested on September 14, 2020 for simply making an attempt to defend his home from a leftist mob.
At first, agitators launched a demonstration at a neighbor’s home claiming that he was racist. When the man eventually drew out his gun for fear of his life, the police were immediately called and the man would later be arrested.
A Twitter user Kitty Shackleford reported on this story.
A crowd gathered around the man’s house and laid out a Black Lives Matter banner on the street with a BLM fist cutout also present. In addition, an American flag was seen hanging close to the man’s front door.
The man’s allegedly racist behavior was drawn from a 15 second video that children shot and posted to Facebook.
Before the police arrived, the gathering in front of the man’s house had a party feel to it with loud music and children and adults dancing in the streets. A good portion of the people outside took out their cell phones and started recording the man’s home.
The confrontation became heated when the activists directly called out the man. The agitators then shined their lights on the man’s home, which had an American flag hanging next to the front door and an “all aboard the Trump Train” sign.
After the activists turned off the music, they started yelling on a megaphone, “Hey Pete!”
As the agitators yelled, the man can be seen inside, holding his gun.
When it became clear that the man was ready to defend himself and his house, the group of agitators called the cops on the homeowner. The activists continued the party after the man was taken away.
This event was organized on Facebook by Vaun L. Mayes, a local activist who was recently arrested on burglary charges. His charges were then dropped by Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm, a Democrat.
Mayes planned the gathering in front of his neighbor’s house and was able to collect donations to organize this disturbance.
Vivek Saxena of BizPac Review pointed out that Mayes is also currently facing federal charges for allegedly “plotting to firebomb a Milwaukee police station after the Sherman Park unrest in 2016.”
In present-day America, the right to self-defense is becoming less respected by the day. Even worse, radical left-wing mobs receive protection from the state and are allowed to wreak havoc. But when decent Americans attempt to stand up for themselves, they get pulverized.
This is anarcho-tyranny at its worst.
I'm still trying to figure out whose house this is. Milwaukee, WI – seems to be outside of a house who BLM is saying pointed a gun at them. The title of the video is "We still lit – This goes out to all the racist neighbors out there" so I assume it is just a local "racist" 1/3 pic.twitter.com/84X6BDQwnD
