The Tipping Point (Texas) The Alamo and Sen. Davis

I worked in the Texas Leg. and Texas politics at the (or at least close to) nadir of Democratic power. The Rove plan to divide people, especially when it came to civil rights for gay Texans was not at its nadir but its apex. The tide has turned. Even Rove understands the hate monster he created is turning on its master. As Texas becomes more brown it becomes purple, then blue. This is something that has been happening for years, slowly, for too long I became disolussioned with Texas politics.

Now I am back in the game. We all are! I will still go to swing states to work for Democrats on the national level. But I see a Democratic Party in Texas that is a real political force, one that can change things!

Perry's anti-woman bill will still get through his new special session - and then die in a federal court. But his type's days are numbered, just like the dictator Santa Anna's days were numbered after his victory at the Alamo. Sam Houston fell back waited, waited and then he took the tyrant down at San Jacinto, his troops, white, brown, shouting "remember the Alamo!"

While Perry the tyrant will win his battle of the Alamo, he, and his reactionary army will meet their San Jacinto! That is Texan (Tejano!) for Waterloo.

We are coming to get you, Rick.

VIVA TEXAS!

VIVA LIBERTAD!

CHINGATE!
