Texas Democrats: please close your eyes

If you're voting as a Democrat in the 2008 Texas Primary Election, there are three questions at the end of the other party's ballot that you'll never see:


Federal, state, and local officials should be required to enforce U.S. immigration laws in order to secure our borders. (Yes/No)

Photo ID

The Texas Legislature should make it a priority to protect the integrity of our election process by enacting legislation that requires voters to provide valid photo identification in order to cast a ballot in any and all elections conducted in the State of Texas. (Yes/No)

Controlling Government Growth

Every governmental body in Texas should be required to limit any annual increase in its budget and spending to the combined increase of population and inflation unless it first gets voter approval to exceed the allowed annual growth or in the case of an official state of emergency. (Yes/No)

When I asked the Texas Secretary of State, I was told (quote):
"These issues are referenda that was ordered by the state Republican party and will appear only on the republican ballot."
Since I've already voted (on the anniversary of the 22nd Amendment), I can confirm this to be true.
