  •  Texas is the poster-child state for austerity. (0+ / 0-)

    We have more low-pay jobs, higher levels of income inequality, crumbling infrastructure, too many uninsured, undereducated, hungry people.  

    Here's where reality beats gerrymanders.  Once you hit the tipping point of population % that watched a house burn or a neighbor die or # of days without power, or overpasses collapsing, or schools closing, or parents without nursing home care you have a flood of conservatives who suddenly see how dependent they are on Big Gubmint and how helpless they are with No Gubmint.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
