TEXAS !

3+ years of aggressive registration "could" turn Texas blue. Demographers already say that by 2020-something it will be a majority Latino state..

I don't think it will take that long..especially if the "number-crunchers" from the Obama team set up shop there NOW, and get busy.

If we could flip Texas, all the "swing" states do not matter...except as icing on the cake

C'mon Texans...you can DO it !!!

1. God, I hope so! I've been so ashamed of my birth state for so long now.

I want to be able to be proud of Texas again, and not just places like Austin.

2. Let's hope so

We have fewer Democratic state legislators then in 2008. We still have no Democratic state-wide office holders. Texas just sent a tea bagger to Washington as a US Senator. And of the office holders we do have, we have more than our share of DINOs.

A Howard Dean 50 state strategy would be very helpful. Until then, Texas is simply a place for national & out-of-state Democratic hopefuls to pick up campaign cash.

BTW, turning those registered into voters isn't always easy.

4. The recent election could be a motivator to them

there is strength in numbers, and if they are made aware that when they get together and all turn out, they COULD end up running the place

3. If Texas goes blue, I dunno what I'll do, but something BIG!

 

I dunno - some way to reward all Duers involved?
