Precinct conventions start at 7:15 PM, or after the last person in line has voted, and are a great place to educate others about issues you care about, and get resolutions on them approved and sent up to the Senate District (SD) conventions and the state convention, so they'll get noticed by a lot more people.. Go to our resolutions list.. http://paa-tx.. org/resolutions.. and pick out resolutions of interest to you -- just click on the titles of any of them.. Download the pdf versions that are formatted for printing, and bring several copies of each to your precinct convention..

National (Congressional) Candidate Questionnaire.. Submitted by Bill Crosier on February 12, 2006 - 2:32pm.. Would you support requiring all electronic voting machines to print on paper for each voter a summary of their voting choices, which will become, after their inspection, the authoritative record of their vote?.. Why should we care about resolutions and going to the Democratic conventions here in Texas?.. Submitted by Bill Crosier on February 8, 2006 - 11:22pm.. Some people question why we bother with writing and promoting resolutions, and say that the candidates may ignore them or that the general public doesn't care.. However, I believe there are some very important reasons why we should promote resolutions that deal with issues we care about:.. Spreading Values through Social Action/Elevator Speeches..

At the PAA meeting this evening, we discussed the resolutions that our group wrote two years ago, before the 2004 primaries..

Inside Bay Area.. http://insidebayarea.. com/ci_3268257.. SACRAMENTO For 11 years, most states have relied on voting systems tested to minimal federal standards, the results withheld from public scrutiny and given the green light by a nongovernmental agency working on a shoestring budget.. The era of approving tools of democracy on the cheap is coming to an end, and judging by talk at a national gathering of voting experts here this week, few will be sorry to see it go.. Carnegie Mellon University computer expert Michael Shamos, a state voting-systems certification official for Pennsylvania, is one of the staunchest advocates for new, fully computerized electronic voting systems..

Why the three words in our organization name?.. The term Progressive goes beyond the traditional liberal concept of promoting social justice, by also including economic justice issues.. For example, we believe that working for non-discrimination in employment is not enough, if our jobs are being exported to other countries that do not enforce standards in working conditions or the environment.. Working for the right to choose your own health care provider won't help if health care is only available to those eligible for (and who can afford) good medical insurance or if your insurance company won't cover your particular medical condition.. We like the term Action because we believe in doing more than thinking, talking, complaining, and forwarding e-mails.. We believe in constructive, non-violent action to promote social change.. We're an Alliance because we know we can accomplish more by working with those in other groups.. We're involved with other organizations that support one or more progressive issues.. We want to connect such organizations together by networking and promoting each other's activities and issues, so we can be a more effective political force.. We want to reverse the divided and conquered mode that we're in.. PAA Issues and Resolutions.. ›..
