I know I sound rather dramatic, but darn it!  I am so tired of seeing all the negative stuff about Texas being the focus.  There are good things as well as good people here!  How can people know that if you don't brag on it?  Well, I want to brag some.  To bring your attention to some decent Texans.  
We have gone through this Texas primary with all the attention being focused on the crazy Republicans running  for U.S. Senate.  No wonder people think that Texas is inhabited by weirdos and kooks.  That's not the real story here.  There are a lot of decent people hear.  We are drowned out by the noisy ones.  And people basically have given up.  They think their vote doesn't matter.    Some thing incredible is happening.  

Part of the problem for Democrats in Texas is that everything is wired for Republicans.  They basically suck up every news cycle here.  You have to be visible to get people to take you seriously.  Up until now, all the debates have been Republican only.  Tonight though, the program Red, White, & Blue is having a forum that will include not only the Republicans, but the Democrats, Sadler & Hubbard.

Here's a taste of our candidates:

If you live in Texas, please watch the program on your local PBS Station at 7 p.m.  If you don't, send this to your friends or family who do live in Texas.  Then go vote in the Democratic Primary!  Heck!  Even if you don't live in Texas, vote Democratic!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
