Bill Norris is THE Democratic Challenger for Texas House District 59

19 May 2012 at 2:11:59 PM

I went in to vote the other day and couldn't find Bill Norris on the Dem primary ballot. I even flipped the page over to see if he was listed on the back. Now, he has no challenger on the Dem side so he's going to win the Democratic primary for Texas House District 59 anyway. But I think people may forget that there's even a choice.

Well, there IS.

Here's an excerpt from his speech to the Gatesville Democratic Club

"When I think of Convervative values, I think back to the Republican debates.

I heard people cheering for executions. (Regardless of how you feel about the death penalty, an execution is not something to cheer about.)

I heard people booing a gay soldier serving in Afghanistan. (Our soldiers deserve our support regardless of their sexual orientation.)

I heard people shout 'let him die' to a question about a sick man without insurance. (We are better people than that.)

I even heard people boo the Golden Rule.

These do not represent my values. My mother raised me on the Golden Rule. She taught me the 10 Commandments and Love thy neighbor. She taught me to practice patience, humility and tolerance.

These are my values. And I believe they represent the true values of the people of Texas."

Update: Spoke to the TDP (Texas Democratic Party) this morning and was told that they are going to have the ballots FIXED in time for the May 29th primary, so that Bill Norris WILL BE ON THE BALLOT. Unfortunately, it's too late for me since I early voted to be able to cast my vote for Bill.

If you are a DEMOCRAT, you have a CHOICE!!!!
