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:
Sean Hubbard on Courage
Paul Sadler on Texas Women
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!
