The war between the two parties is putting our small "d" democracy at risk – not to mention fundamentals like our land and water.

You’re invited to join the independent movement to do something about it!  Revisit the page again soon for the full agenda of this event -- all panels will be in the morning.

Democracy is not a game: Most voters agree the gamesmanship between the two parties is not only stifling innovation, it is harming small “d” democracy – the ability to build consensus in our country. In Texas, ballot access petition reform would allow independent, non-aligned candidate and minor party competition. It’s called the Texas Voter Choice Act.

We must also defend the right to petition for municipal voter referenda – real local control – currently under attack by municipal lobby machines. This article tipped the hand of the municipal political machines that will try to do damage to the right to petition in Texas.

Saying NO to the California Water Model: Private water speculators are hijacking the State Water Plan via “Gridzilla”, a water grid mimicking California’s over-pumping and costly transfer of groundwater from distant locations for real estate development. Pass the Sustainable Groundwater Development Act to protect our aquifers, landowners, ratepayers and future generations.

Curbing Eminent Domain Abuse: TThe newly organized Texas Landowners for Eminent Domain Reform is working this session to level the playing field in an unfair process that favors condemnors over landowners.
