To put it another way, the GOP is in peril in those districts that are most reflective of the national demographics -- some of which exist, and some of which they currently hold.

    That is pretty much a foregone conclusion at this point, the only question remains is whether the GOP will win the war of attrition to save their House Majority. But they are going to lose seats.
    I have lived all over the country and have found that there is a lot of jealousy regarding TX. There are a lot more states than being reported that have emulated what TX has done but liberalism dies hard. It really is a shame, love that TX personal responsibility platform

    There is no question that the GOP is in trouble as the entitlement mentality and wealth redistribution efforts take hole. Too bad personal responsibility is a lost art today in far too many states

    I'm pretty sure Texas attracts more disdain than admiration from elsewhere in the Union, but whatever.

    It's a good thing that Texas still has so much land available, or where would those now fleeing California go instead? Considering that the refugees from Louisiana's Katrina disaster of 2005 decided to stay in Texas, it appears that Texas must be doing something right!

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Didn't read the report, did you? Well back to ignore for you until I get that apology
    Yes, run away

    You lied about what the report says (which is why you won't quote it) and I doubt you'll ignore my posts

    No question about it, however the real question should be why? What is it about TX that have other states upset?

    I wasn't addressing whether or not "conservatism" is irrational, just that Limbaugh's arguments for it are irrational. He does almost nothing but make freshman-level debate points built completely out of logical fallacies.

    That's really cute coming from someone who just said:

    You're endlessly making sweeping judgments of liberals, then complain about people making sweeping judgments of groups you belong to.

    You either listen to Limbaugh or you listen to, read, or watch some other outlet that repeats his propaganda. Either watching the talk shows on Fox "News", or reading right-wing blogs that just regurgitate the same propaganda. Before you get defensive and try to argue it, stop and think about the fact that I'm right, so maybe there really is something to what I'm saying. How else would I know that you consume this stuff?

    Your story is broken. You might want to rethink it. If you've always been a conservative, then how did liberalism make a fool out of you?

    Edit: Also, JFK wasn't a conservative.

    So hows that conservative "war on drugs" going Con? Funny how big government Con programs you support don't work out to well either. Hmmmmmm

    You are not greedy? By who's standards? Yours?

    Left wing radicals such as yourself are very greedy. Whatever your type gets government to do, it's never enough. Your type never gets enough of other peoples money. Your type always want more, more, more from the productive people of our once great land.

    But your type could put your money were your mouth is and just go ahead and double the tax payments to the government that you owe. Or increase it by 25% or so. It is not required that you only pay what you owe. But your type never advocates anything like that and instead always applies your never ending greed to other peoples money.

    Another lie from Conservative



    Characteristics of Minimum Wage Workers: 2012
    The states with the highest proportions of hourly paid workers earning at or below the federal minimum wage were Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, and Idaho (all between 7 and 8 percent). The states with the lowest percentages of hourly paid workers earning at or below the federal minimum wage were Alaska, Oregon, California, Montana, and Washington (all under 2 percent).
