"If I left Austin, I'd keep going until I hit Canada. And I'd drive around Oklahoma to do it..."
"Can Travis County secede from Texas?"
These aren't offhand statements. They're bumperstickers 'round these parts. They're overheard at bars and restaurants. They are the inside jokes of our tiny blue island floating on a sea of crazy.
And while I'm not the most social creature on the planet, I do see the need for connections in the real world. The need to know who's fighting alongside you, the need to look them in the eyes and say "Have you tried the Fireman's 4 on tap here? It's killer!"
In short, the need to have an Austin Kossacks meetup group. Follow me below the glyph for more...
So here we are. We live in or around a lovely city and we see the creativity and compassion of our fellow Texans every day. Why not see who among us aren't just burnt orange, but also Kossack orange? Hence, this group.
CenTex Kossacks is a meet-up group for all Kossacks in Austin and the suurounding 'burbs (Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown, Kyle, Buda, San Marcos, Manor, Leander...the list goes on as "smart-growth" continues...)
If you want to knock on doors for Obama, more power to you. If you want to get a beer, hell yeah. If you just want to have an extra set of hands to clap while you yell at the grackles and curse Rick Perry? We can do that. Use this group to pull it together.
I'm a skinny 30-something graphic designer with 2 dogs and some seriously left-wing views. I'm looking for kindred spirits and like-minded voters in the CenTex area to help keep the energy up as we cross out of this election season and get back to the business of building an American future.
