  •  Thank you for standing up for your state. (0+ / 0-)

    I was born in and lived in Texas for 60 years, and in other states for the last 9.

    I am ashamed and horrified by Texas politics, which were just as "conservative" and racist and sexist for most of my life, under Democrats, as they are now.  

    LBJ was not a liberal, he was a pragmatist, and a populist in the old Texas sense.

    But when we have to vote for people like Lloyd Doggett (which I got to do until his district was gerrymandered the first time, and the second time.), Barbara Jordan and Ann Richards we do and on a district level they win.  It has been proven on a national level that the Bush political mafia is very powerful and they pretty much own Texas.  That Ann Richards was elected Governor was a minor miracle.

    So when foreigners condemn an entire state and wish its entire population, basically, to suffer and die, it says volumes about the haters who say that.

    In fact those haters need to shift over to the Tee Party as they humanity fits that pattern like a glove and the progressive's and liberal's not at all.
