    But Hutchinson will likely beat out Goodhair Perry, a slight improvement at best.


    Agreed, but I will be voting Dem. I want to live in a blue state and take it back from the crazies.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Actually, in Texas, it is the Republicans who have ****ed up everything for years, but that may be about to change. Hutchinson is a bit too authoritarian for my tastes (I would prefer someone more Libertarian), but she would still be much better than Rick Perry, who thinks he is Napoleon.

    On this I agree. I will take K. over Dick Perry anyday.

    I likely will too, it may sound like a longshot but Texas has been trending back to the dems in the state house and senate the last three elections.

    Shows how ignorant you are in terms of my point of view. You see, raising taxes just to raise taxes is stupid.

    No one raises taxes just to raise taxes, they raise it to get revenue.
