To: Texas State Senators, Representatives & Governor
Whereas Texas property tax is now out of control and oppressively burdensome to all property owners to the point many are losing their homes and property;

Whereas the property of Texas citizens should not be liable to seizure by the State in the case that their Property Tax is delinquent or unpaid, even though their home and property is paid for in total;

Whereas the poor are being unnecessarily encumbered with higher rents than should be necessary because property owners and landlords have to pay increasing property taxes;

Whereas the elimination of Texas property taxes will potentially allow renters to be more likely to finally own their own home;

Whereas all property taxes work to punish those who are the most productive in society, along with savers and retirees;

Whereas the property tax was promoted and enacted by certain politicians in the early 1900s, who briefly strayed from the ideas of our Founding Fathers of individual responsibility only to become enamored with European/Russian socialist theories of redistribution of the wealth and property of the citizenry;

Whereas a small increase in the Texas State Sales Tax to replace Texas's Property taxes is a more fair tax, which does not just penalize only home and property owners, but is levied equally on all citizens (Texas's State Sales tax is not collected on basic needs such as food, rent, prescription drugs, etc.);

We, the undersigned citizens of Texas, do hereby demand that all Texas Property taxes, in all forms, be eliminated totally; that NO property tax, whether commercial or residential, homesteaded or non-homesteaded, be left in place. The right to own Texas property is to remain unencumbered by any kind of fee, tax, etc. that enforces payment to another person, group, government or entity that is not the rightful owner of that property; loss of revenues to State and local governments, due to these actions, should be solved by these legislatures, but we recommend a 1\\% raise in the State Sales Tax and at least a 10\\% reduction in all government spending by all departments across the boards except for police and court systems (those being true, constitutionally-authorized departments).
