Frederick Douglass embodied the the ideals of the being a libertarian in many ways. Not only was he a national leader for the abolition movement but he also actively supported the women's suffrage movement and was vocal in his views on free markets, free trade, limited government and individual rights.

Born into slavery in February of 1818 he became the first African-American nominated for Vice-President in 1872. Frederick Douglass died on February 20, 1895 and by some accords was the most influential African American of the 19th Century.

History Teaches Us Election Delays Are Nothing New

Many Americans woke up yesterday feeling distraught that the outcome of the presidential election is still unclear. Rather than viewing this delay as a failure in the system, it should be viewed as the system actually working in a deliberate way to ensure that the will of the majority is accurately assessed. #election2020 #teachingcurrentevents

Worried we may have to wait to find out whether Biden or Trump won? In 1800, election results were delayed for months. And don’t forget 2000, when legal battles prolonged the final results until Dec. 12.

To the City Council and all of the citizens of Arlington,

We the undersigned believe that the recently completed Term Limits Advisory Committee (TLAC) recommendation to City Council did not properly reflect the views as expressed during the more than thirteen (13) hours of committee meetings held.

We came to the TLAC with a variety of backgrounds and views but realized very quickly that our views were unwelcome. This was due in part to the overly narrow charge provided by City Council to the TLAC and the rest was due to the unnecessary rush of holding four (4) meetings over a fifteen (15) day period, a first in Arlington history for an appointed committee of any kind.

The TLAC’s charge was to solely review the length and number of terms allowed under Arlington’s current term limits, as passed by the voters in Nov. 2018. This ignored a number of points of view that we believed could have improved the TLAC’s recommendations and provided a more comprehensive view of what’s best for the City of Arlington. These points include, but are not limited to:
1. Liability if a vote is held before the constitutionally mandated two year waiting period;
2. A Recall option if term lengths are adjusted to three or more years;
3. Initiative and Referendum to give voters more say in many of the decisions facing Arlington;
4. Campaign Finance reforms that would lower the cost of running for Council or Mayor; and
5. Uniform Election date that would increase voter turnout and ensure improved representation.

Ultimately, this has been a missed opportunity for the City of Arlington as a whole. Instead of having an open and honest citizen-led discussion of ways to improve the city, we had a rehashing of the 2018 election that increasingly led to citizen distrust of the TLAC, and growing distrust of the reasons why the City Council formed this committee.

The final presentation of the TLAC includes one item in particular that we believe stepped outside the charge given to the committee and if adopted by City Council will be seen by the voters of Arlington as an overt effort to completely undo the very term limits they approved.

Twelve (12) out of twenty-four (24) members, or exactly half, of the committee voted to advise the City Council that it should eliminate all mention of a lifetime limit on the total number of terms someone might be in office.

This was the most extreme recommendation the TLAC made and it lacked a clear consensus mandate. It was not a clear majority, as two members of the TLAC were not present. We believe a more reasonable recommendation could have been made, if cooler heads had prevailed.

Therefore, we wish to express in the strongest possible terms our opposition to this extreme recommendation and advise the City Council to NOT proceed further. Our collective opinion is that moving forward will result in opposition by the voters of Arlington to the rest of the TLAC’s recommendations and potentially the defeat at the ballot box of any candidate who supports them or Council members who vote to move it forward.

State Fair of Texas

State Fair of Texas

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the State Fair of Texas will not open for the 2020 season. Our mission at the Fair is to celebrate all things Texan and with that comes...being friendly, lending a helping hand, and looking out for others. This year, those essential traits of being a Texan matter more than ever. Right now, we must take care of our neighbors and loved ones.

The Fair’s commitment to our nonprofit mission of promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement will continue. In addition, we commit to maintaining as many participation opportunities as possible for both livestock and creative arts - stay tuned for more updates on these contests.

We have been around for 134 years and though we may not see each other in person this year, we can promise you we will be counting down the days until we can celebrate in 2021 and the many State Fair’s ahead of us. We will be waiting with open arms to welcome you back next year in true Texas-fashion with the biggest and best, “Howdy, Folks!”

We appreciate your understanding, and overall love and dedication toward the State Fair of Texas.

You were great at ARC this evening! You distanced yourself from those that did not want term limits. Term limits won 2 to 1! That is why we want you!
Very pretty smart, and nice
