Texas is turning blue fast: What will the GOP be without it?

"Simply put, the Texans who died today were disproportionately Republican. Of those who turned 18, the great majority are Democrats.

If this trend continues, the GOPís downfall in Texas isnít likely, itís assured. And without Texas, the national GOP is royally screwed."

2. Our TX household is 4-1 Democrat.

The 1 Republican is 83. We're doing our part to turn Texas blue.

3. My personal opinion

I believe that once Texas turns blue on the presidential level, the GOP's national aspirations will evaporate entirely, leaving only a disgusting residue.

5. I have been predicting TX will go blue (presidential) by 2028.

And the way its population is growing it may come with between 50 to 60 electoral votes.

6. Dead. The current GOP has proven they don't deserve to live as a party...

...They have betrayed America in treasonous fashion. The $1.5 trillion love give to their "donors" aptly demonstrates that they do NOT answer to their constituents, but to the wealthy factions and families that have propped up their power base over the years.

I used to think it was time for the GOP to spend 40 years wandering in the wilderness to atone for their sins. I now believe the expiration of the GOP is best for all, whether it be by euthanasia or outright extermination.

7. Agreed

The fake-ass 'Tea Party' pulled them beyond redemption. Time for the right to jettison the Nazis and just restart. I wish you had a choice, but you don't.

8. Nope. Taking it from a precinct chair in the middle of rw central Texas.

The repugs have the money (enormous amounts from big oil and other big businesses). The Hispanic priests preach about the evil devils who want to kill babies (that would be us). The mega churches spout hate against gays and women, especially Lesbians who want to castrate men and run everything. They have control of the small town newspapers and run pictures of aborted fetuses and of crosses in the lawn of churches representing all those babies who were murdered. They identify anyone who even looks like a middle Eastern person as a Muslim and quote out of context passages from the Quran to support the idea that all Muslims want to kill all nonbelievers. We have a huge uphill battle that will turn but not any time soon.
