The Democratic Machine Seeks to Capture Texas
Right Side News ^ | 2/28/13 | DTN

Posted on 02/28/2013 1:13:06 PM PST by RightSideNews

This past Tuesday, a key Obama campaign operative launched Battleground Texas, a group that seeks to transform the Battleground Texas traditionally Republican Lone Star State into a Democratic stronghold, and thereby make it impossible for Republicans to ever again win a presidential election.

Launched on February 26, 2013, Battleground Texas (BT) seeks to transform the traditionally Republican Lone Star State into a Democratic stronghold.[1] At its inception, BT pledged that over the next several years it would “focus on expanding the electorate by registering more voters—and, as importantly, mobilizing those Texans who are already registered but who have not been engaged in the democratic process.”

Since the only opposing party is the Republican Party, which is the same as no opposition, then it is likely that Texas will fall to the liberals.

We really do need another party, a conservative party.

They can prevent this by allocating their electoral votes as Maine and Nebraska do.

we really do need people to start supporting the better side.....we really do need people to stop complaining for 4 yrs and then vote in the communist dictator AGAIN....

but alas, so called conservatives and patriots have their noses stuck up in the air so high that can't even see the damage they have done by not voting for republicans, enmasse....

support whatever candidate you want in the primaries....but once the field is set, we've got to vote our side in....

Not hard to understand. Push to legalize as many Hispanics as possible, set up the normal Dem voting fraud apparatus (assisted by the DOJ), exploit the cultural Hispanic breeding advantage, and Texas will be blue in no time.

I’ve seen about 10 stories on this recently, a lot of them in the “conservative” press. What is the f’ing point? Libs are trying to turn every state Blue. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Some states go Blue and turn back to Red. I am tired of the doom and gloom. If Texas goes Blue “forever” and no other state turns “Red” then yes, the Republicans will “never” win the White House again and we might as well just hang it up, stop working and start collecting our government checks like every other lazy bum Dem constituent while Dear Leader takes care of us. Its silly to engage in this type of speculation, especially at a time when we already are demoralized.

Statement: "The Democratic Machine Seeks to Capture Texas"

Response: They will succeed.

Comment: This type of activity is where the left succeeds. They set a political goal then they take all necessary political steps until they achieve the goal. They will lie, cheat, register illegal aliens, take people to the polls and help them mark their ballots, finance candidates, go into debt to win elections, get publicity, play the pity game-(i.e. women, children and minorities)-engage in vicious character assassination. They have or will infiltrate all important institutions such as schools, churches, businesses, social clubsa and the media. They will ruthlessly suppress all disenting voices.

The conservative will merely write articles, debate, discuss, express different points of view and fight among themselves. In short, sit impotently by while the left acts!

If we keep ignoring the criminal invaders, yes.

There is a case here where an illegal stole a truck and after a pursuit ran over someone. Sort story the local LULAC as_hat referred to this POS as not a felon or criminal he had a good job nd only had a prior traffic citation. As long as we let them label them as non-felons for invading we are doomed.

I disagree. The republicans in any number of states are being disenfranchised in the representative assembly that is the electoral college.

The democrats have been using the cities for decades to build their power, hence the outrage in the possible changing of title IV of the Voting Rights Act. Literally all of their constituencies live in the cities. Just as an example, if the democrats take Texas as they plan to do, they would have 36 electoral votes, while if Texas reallocates its electors they would only get 14 (assuming all the districts would vote for president the same way they voted for congressmen).

The Electoral College needs to be re-balanced. The population centers are over-populating the body.

It won’t be hard for them to capture Texas. With all the liberals coming here to find jobs and our governor going to California and begging them to come here, what are the odds that Texas will stay conservative? The cities are already full of liberals, and the cities are where these new people are relocating to to find jobs and government assistance. There are pockets of conservatism in the major cities but the more unpopulated areas are where the right thinking people live. Soon, there won’t be enough small town folks to off set the votes of the city people.

But, they are voting Democrat.

needing conservatives is a big key, and the idea of shared votes...ugh. The biggest cities, Dallas, Houston, San Antoni, Ft. Worth and Austin all are run by democrats. Anyone thinking the the state is not in need of a conservative change is asleep. Our property taxes are thu the roof, money that is paid in gas taxes do not go for roads, money paid for sporting taxes - ammo, fishing liscense etc etc. has been diverted to the general funds...that is not conservative.

What you don’t understand is dividing Texas without dividing California ensures that Republicans lose 14 seats, (a swing of 28, or almost 5 percent of the electoral college).

Sure, if California were divided, this might be in the cards, but until then - it would be electoral suicide for the Republican party.

During the last two high school graduations I went to (probably 2008 & 2011) that had either an ‘hispanic’ valedictorian or salutorian much of that person’s speech was in Spanish. Of course, they also recieved LULAC scholarships. I have a VERY strong feeling LULAC encouraged them to give their speech in Spanish.

On the first one, much of the crowd looked uncomfortable and a few even appeared shocked, as was I. The speaker said it was so his parents could understand his words - and I was thinking we just paid taxes for 13 years for this kid to get an education and his parents could’t respect us enough learn enough English in that time to understand what he had to say?

Some have been Zotted. Others flip out and exit the arena.

Some rare ones reform themselves and become productive members of society.

Personally I got no control over Zotting.
I'd rather see them reformed and becoming an asset.

Some, though, are hard-case blogpimps.

You just have to beat on them until they break sometimes.

And that is sad.

I don’t think this is speculation. Of the five largest states in the nation, the only one that has been consistently conservative has been Texas. Yet, we have both the RINO elite/establishment republicans and the democrats working towards bringing in a more consistently liberal constituency when they clamor for more illegals to be made legal.

The republicans tell you they are doing this because the illegals are going to be here anyway, so they have show them they are on their side or they will end up a permanent minority party. The truth of the matter is that illegals will never be conservative. The RINO goal is the same as the democrats, get rid of the conservatives for good. They hope that if some of these new immigrants join the republican party, they can help put an end to the conservative domination of the party and its primaries.

They are not really trying to turn every state blue. I live in FL another one of the top five states in population. Before the election, I was with relatives in Alabama. The difference was night and day. No election advertisements, barely any election coverage. You would not even know there was an election going on. The dems don’t care about Alabama. They were not even contending for it. It is too small and too conservative a state. Yet they will fight tooth and nail for prizes like TX and FL.

If we ignore what they are doing, we will once again be caught flat footed when their schemes come to fruition. I am not demoralized. I already know who wins in the end. But, I won’t be silent about what is happening. I’ll shine a light on their plans. I’ll tell anyone who will listen. I’ll pray that their schemes are thwarted. At least if or when it happens, they won’t be able to say they were taken by surprise.

Completely agree with you. The ONLY reason for these stupidly speculative articles IS to demoralize. The fact is that TX is as red as its ever been. Don’t believe me, go back and look at how much better democrats used to perform here. Heck, Bill Clinton totally outperformed Obama. Ever hear of Ann Richards??

The democrats get most of their victories through voter fraud in the big cities. They won’t be able to steal states anymore if electoral collge votes are reallocated.

California would never reallocate. Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, and Ohio could however. Instead of a republican candidate getting no elecoral votes in these states, they would get some, even many looking at the congressional breakdown.

Out of state funds should not be permitted in state and city races. The lesbian mayor of Houston received substantial financial contributions from out of state members of the lavender mafia who will never have to live under any of her policies.

The Texas GOP can’t even find a Democrat primary challenger for Queen Sheila Jackson Lee’s seat in the Houston Heights (an older neighborhood with costly properties favored by upper middle class and upper class yuppies). They may be liberal Democrats but it’s not like Sheila gets challenged to debates every election.

Sheila Jackson-Lee is in a "designed" Black district and is representative of her district's mentality.

If you want to waste time and $$$, run a conservative in that district. It's a lot more than the Heights...it also includes the Benz area.

Craig Washington was the congressman from that district until he was killed in a plane crash. He was constantly in the news for breaking one law or another and always won and would be there today if his plane hadn't gone down.

I am afraid that you are right. The two parties have been around for more than a hundred years and it is not going to be quick or easy to have them removed. We do know that the Democrats want ever increasing power for the federal government and if they have their way they will be not that different than Hugo Chavez. Then to make sure that we will never rise again they will redouble their efforts to bring in as many third worlders as they possibly can.

We are in a grave situation, we need people who can strategize. We are not in control of our own country anymore so we have to work with whatever we can get and keep supporting Tea Party and other like minded candidates and well as holding our noses and voting for *moderate* Republicans when there is no other choice. At the same time we have to keep assertng our power on the local level. That means resolutions, laws, public demonstrations, whatever it takes to be influential in our communities. This is like a tug-of-war with Washington pulling the rope in one direction while we have to pull the rope in the opposite direction. It is only since the Tea Party movement that we have heard people seriously talking about the rights of the states.
