Texas State Senator Wendy Davis Does The Work That Average Texans Should Be Doing

I appreciate Texas State Senator Wendy Davis of Fort Worth holding up the terrible school finance bill last Sunday night.

However, the real work of freedom and the real force for a better Texas will come from average everyday Texans who are willing to vote and work for a more hopeful future.

Here are some details of the Texas Legislative  special session that is in the works after the Sunday night filibuster.

In Wisconsin, people occupied the State House and fought hard against the anti-worker legislation the Republicans were proposing.

Texans have the same option as measures that threaten public education and the public health are proposed and enacted in our legislature

One state senator can’t do the work of an entire state.

Every Texan has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes you value, and even run for public office.

It is up to each of us to do the work of freedom and fair play for all.

  1. An article in the Texas Tribune, sorry I can’t remember which article, mentioned that the Congresswoman’s filibuster puts a crimp in Perry’s aspiration for higher office. If so, then I’d vote for Ms. Davis attaining saint-hood.
