Turn out for early voting for this statewide election was super low, so your vote counts a bunch!

Proposition 12 is carefully crafted to trick Texans to vote for debt, future tax increases and toll roads paid for with our tax dollars (an unaccountable double tax). Prop 12 is TxDOT seeking taxpayers approval to take on $5 Billion of debt - it's a future tax increase

TxDOT has claimed they’ve run out of money, while they spend billions of our tax dollars to shift freeways to toll roads (Dallas - SH121, San Antonio - SH281, Austin 71, 290 and 183) and to create the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC). The State Auditor caught TxDOT inflating it’s needs by $45 billion dollars this year and TxDOT continues to ignore the public by spending millions of our tax dollars on an ad campaign to sell us toll roads and TaxTags.

Proposition 12 is the largest proposed new debt on the ballot this year. It would authorize up to $5 billion dollars of state road debt to be repaid with general revenue, instead of dedicated transportation funds. Yet another accountability breech.

In 2001, Prop 15 (the first Tax Wolf in sheep's clothing) was put on the ballot and politicos promised it would help solve our transportation crisis by establishing the Texas Mobility Fund. Prop 15 became a constitutional amendment. Much like this years Prop 12, Prop 15 did not openly inform voters that TxDOT would use Texas Mobility Fund exclusively to shift our freeways to toll ways. Prop 15 took accountability and the will of the people out of the equation - so special interests could seize OUR LAND and OUR ROADS for profit.

Don’t be fooled again, help stop the tax wolf and vote NO on Prop 12, Tuesday Nov 6th! Get others to do the same.

I'm ashamed of elected officials that would even consider this land-grab, double-taxing ripoff.

I WILL vote accordingly.
