We need a sane moderate conservative party. Seriously.

One that accepts science and objective reality and offers market based and conservative solutions to real problems. Say like Merkel's party in Germany or Sarcozy's in France. Those countries have far right parties as well. We have a non parlaimentary system which lends itself to two major parties. The GOP can either morph into reality based conservative party or a white nationalist one. I hope for the former but fear the latter. I wouldn't vote for either type of conservative but as it stands half our political parties (1 of 2) are insane.

Earned Income Tax Credit is the last real idea to fix a real problem I can remember the GOPers coming up with. What was that, like 40 years ago? Shit, Nixon was a left winger compaired to today's GOP. Shit even Reagan was a lefty compared to this bunch, or at least sane.

Arely Staircase Turnout Report

Ok so I live I a very red county in (for now) very red Texas. I got the names and contact info for the 517 voters in my precinct with Hispanic surnames. I sent an impassioned (in English and Spanish) text w/info on where to vote and what forms of ID are acceptable to the 120 or so with cel phones. Then I called the othe 200 or so with landlines (leaving the same info as voice mails for those who didn't answer.

Long story short 162 people from my list voted early. That is a 33 percent early turnout (about double Hispanic early turnout in my precinct 4 years ago!) I will retext and recall all the ones who didn't vote. The two hundred voters I have no number for are at around 100.individual doors, which we shall knock tonight.

Hasta la victoria siempre
