The Texas State House, The Texas State Senate, and Governor Greg Abbott
Repeal the anti-communist laws in Texas
We petition the Texas State Legislature to repeal the anti-communist law which is still in effect in Texas. This law prohibits members of the Communist Party from holding public office or even holding a state government job. The law is anti-democratic, highly discriminatory, unconstitutional, libelous and is a violation of human rights. The law is Title 5, Subtitle A, Chapter 557, Subchapter A. Sedition and Subchapter C. Communism.
Why is this important?
This law is irrelevant and is outdated, but more importantly, it is a violation of human rights. Not only does it make it impossible for voters to vote for Communist Party candidates, it also makes it impossible for people to vote against Communist Party candidates. I am offended by it because it violates my democratic rights.
