10. Carpet-bagger? Maybe

Maybe Judge Meyers is a party-switching opportunist or maybe he's not. I don't know if there's enough evidence to say yet.

What I do know is that the Tea Party-driven Texas Republican Party primary system seems to be creating a crop of candidates and political platforms so extreme that many Texas moderate-conservatives and conservatives are having to face their own long dark nights of the soul and ask themselves if their Republican Party is representing them or their interests any more. Those of them that want a modern Texas or something better than pre-Jim Hogg Texas are likely to go someplace, and not to the Libertarians.

Like it or not, at least some of them are going to start voting and participating as Texas Democrats.
