And beyond the culturistic and sometimes dramatic Texas bravado and braggadocio, the state is full of warm hearted and caring people. (Unless, of course you are a Obama supporter, long hair or liberal. LOL!)

    Texas has two options. It can eventually accept the fact that America is moving forward with or without them and get with the program or become Mexican again. I suppose they will reluctantly get with the American plan all the while saving their very unique culturisms.

    I love Texas. I'm a native Texan myself. But all this Perry, Cruz, racially underlined christian right social conservatism is becoming somewhat embarassing. I used to brag about Texas.

    I do believe you will see the end of the republican party if states like Texas and Arizona become blue states, which is inevitable. What I'm getting at is that I think extremist parties will arise that will gain political power and attempt to break up the Union.


    I don't believe that social conservative whites in the South will simply go with a reformed, 'Corporate only' Republican party. I think they'll diverge into separatist parties. I don't think it will go smoothly like some predict. The North Eastern GOP and Jeb Bush's don't seem to realize this. I think it will be amusing to watch them come upon this realization. I think there's a lot of hard knocks in store for the 'Corporate Wing' of the modern GOP.

    Well, let us not forget that the republican led state has sliced and diced district lines and voting demographics to certainly lend favor to their chances of survival.

    Eventually, Texas will be blue, as will all of America. The clock doesn't stop for anybody. They might go kicking and screaming but when the train pulls out of the station they will be on it. But I just think it won't be done in Texas by 2016.

    All of America will never be blue. Our political system does not lend itself to one party rule. Even on the extreme off chance the republican party disappears something will fill it's place.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    For former Florida Governor Jeb Bush a four-year timetable is enough for a significant shift for the Republican party. He tells Joe Hagan of New York magazine: “It’s a math question. Four years from now, Texas is going to be a so-called blue state. Imagine Texas as a blue state, how hard it would be to carry the presidency or gain control of the Senate.”

    No, but its a good way for him to rally attention to GOP intransigence on the immigration bill in the House which I have no doubt is his intention. He knows full well that Texas wont turn blue in just 3 years.

    Well. I don't believe Jeb Bush types have a future in the GOP only because the GOP cannot attract minority voters is the truth.


    Minorities vote Democrat over economics. All types like Jeb Bush will do is further alienate white social conservatives. If the GOP is simply a "Multiracial, Corporate Party" then it will never win nationally with that by abandoning social conservatives. Jeb Bush is no social conservative. Two of his kids have been arrested and his daughter is a drug abuser that failed out of rehab. White social conservatives will never go for a race mixing Catholic with criminals kids lol.

    You know, it is this kinda incredibly lame **** that really lowers political discussion. His family is not any one's business but their own, and trying to use them to score political points is just about is cowardly and assholish as you can get. Well done, you have proven you can sink to incredibly low levels. I applaud you.

    No, everything should not be on the table. In fact, family should be off the ****ing table. I criticize any one who attacks the family of politicians, because it is a vile, low class thing to do. and further, is not anything important as far as, you know, issues.

    Hello. These are main line news sources. You don't have to like them but you have no right to start telling American voters what is and isn't on the table.

    This stuff comes from mainstream news sites.. What are you going to do? Start lecturing us that CNN is a radical extremist site? Some Liberal you are. More like the Chinese Politburo trying to censor corruption cases..

    I do not give a **** where it comes from. Some things are appropriate, some are not. Going after a politicians family is not.
