  •  Austin ain't the problem. (4+ / 0-)

    I also live in Austin, but I was born in west Texas and grew up in deep east Texas.  Neither of those places is going to change.  Our only hope is the cities.  

    I agree Goodhair is toast in the long run, but he might manage to get elected Governor one more time.  I don't think so, but there are plenty more crazies where he came from.

    We might, in time, be able to get a Democrat elected senator.  It might even happen in my lifetime (I'm 48), but it's going to be a very long time before we have a Democratic congressional delegation.  The Republicans have rigged state politics to favor their election since the day they took over.  It will take a long time to unwind them.  I'm not even going to mention the pathetic excuse that is the Texas Democratic Party.

    Castro for Governor would be a very good start, but since the Texas Governor doesn't hold any real power, it's largely symbolic.  It would be fun to watch the crackers squirm, though.  They'd be buying even more guns to protect themselves from the "Mezzcans"!

    it's going to be a very long time before a true progressive gets elected to national office from Texas.  

    I hope I'm alive to see it.
