An Endorsement

Chances are, if you're reading this, you're planning on voting tomorrow.  You believe we all have a voice, and that, if used together, our collective voices can empower change.

So I'm not going to tell you to vote tomorrow.  You already know that.

Chances are also likely that, if you're reading this, you're planning on voting straight Democratic tomorrow.  You believe the Democrats best represent the values you agree with:  education funding, tuition regulation, renewable energy and -- perhaps most importantly -- an inclusiveness of humanity so lacking in nearly every other Party out there these days, including the little-known The Rent is Just High Enough, Thanks party.

So I'm not going to tell you to vote for Democrats tomorrow.  You already know that.

Instead, I'm going to push my little soapbox up to the sidewalk and instead, I'm going to ask you to not vote tomorrow.  Actually, I'm going to ask you to not vote for a Democrat.  I'm going to ask that you go to the polls, between 7 AM and 7 PM, hit the Straight Democratic button and then request to make changes to your ballot specifically to remove one Democrat:

Texas Supreme Court candidate Jim Sharp.


Because while we may not be able to collectively raise our voices loud enough to overcome the ignorance around us to elect great Democrats, we can at least stop electing those who don't deserve to be Democrats.

Thank you for your vote.

  • Scott In South Austin Says:

    My little cheat sheet has been modified. Why does he sound so familiar? I thought him and Carolyn Keeton Strayhorn Broughham Escalade were politically connected.

    This is why its good to only vote on election day.


  • Mean Rachel Says:

    You are probably thinking of John Sharp, who was in the running for the non-existent Senate seat until not too long ago.
    Same last name, different brains.
    Happy voting.
