Shark Tank ^ | 3/27/13 | JAVIER MANJARRES

Posted on 03/28/2013 12:55:37 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

You gotta hand it to Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for always being so optimistic about how the Democratic Party will one day rule the world. Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz tweeted that @BGTX Congrats on #GameOnFortWorth! Only a matter of time and hard work until #TX is #blue! #countdowntoblue #teameffort.”

Jeb Bush already predicted this would happen by 2016. And Cornyn will make sure of it.

As a Texan, I believe there is a possibility that TX will turn blue in the next few years.

Half the state of California seems to be moving here...........

Democrats USED to win down here. The operative word is USED. Over the past 20 years TX has only turned redder.

Don’t laugh. They already have Dallas. They have Houston. They have San Antonio. They have McAllen and all the border counties along the Rio Grande. What else is left but a bunch of cows? If you think it’s not possible, you better wake up.

She’s right.

Where in this country are conservatives being produced in any significant numbers?

What happens when existing conservatives expire?

What happens when illegal aliens are made citizens?

This entire country is going to turn blue, the tyrant overlords have no effective opposition whatsoever.

The Democrats all know that the election infrastructure has been permanently compromised and that there will never be another fair election.

They will always manage to manufacture enough votes to win.

Once they get a firmer hold in DFW area, as in other population dense areas, it won’t be long before the votes in the area crush the honest law abiding citizens in the less populace areas of the state. Same in NV with Vegas and the unions pretty much dictating what the rest of the state has to put with. Stay strong my friends.

Current population is 22M, with 1M illegals.

Make the illegals legal, attract another 1M from Mexico the year after amnesty, and pretty quick you put Texas in play.

She might be correct, the way the GOP-e is behaving. I heard on Rush this morning that a couple of GOP "consultants" were hoping the SCOTUS would make Gay marriage legal and therefore the RATS could no longer use that against the GOP !!!!!!! Yup, similar to CR, Debt ceiling, and Sequestration - "we cannot really fight this issue, but wait till the next time they need a vote: we will really stick it to the RATs then".

The next time we get the same feeble "now is not the time or the issue to fight" response.

I remember when Texas went Republican Red, after more than a century in divided between "Progressive" and "Conservative" D.

The only way that could happen in the near future would be the result of Republicans in Congress being essential to the establishment of "gay marriage," or maybe a "pathway to amnesty." Because then the strong Conservative base in Texas (and I mean STRONG) might just give the GOP the finger and stay home, you know?

Oh... wait...

This is psychological wargames, pure and simple. Texas has turned as red as can be over the past 20 years. Of course the Dems are going to try to turn it back to Democratic but so far they have failed. And conversely, Republicans have succeeded in making it even more Republican.

I am tired of Republicans worrying and moaning about this BS. If you truly believe this, we might as well give up now and not fight the Dems on anything. What is the point of these discussions other than to bitch about how horrible the Republicans are at winning elections? If we go into elections with such a defeatist attitude, we will lose.

Obama had the highest percent of the vote by a dem candidate since LBJ yet he still lost TX (both times) by roughly 15 points.

No way TX turns blue for a longggg time.

Give enough lazy people enough freebies, and over time, EVERYTHING will be blue.

Sadly, we're well on on way there already.And, once something is given, it's damn near impossible to take back.

It can be forestalled for awhile by voter ID requirements, but, yes.. ultimately most of the entire country will turn blue. In 20 years or so, historians will regard Hillary Clinton as what passes for "centrist."

An alinsky tactic is to make something sound inevitable to strike fear into the heart of your opponent. Actually commies employ this tactic the most when they feel weakest.

Well I’ve been hearing the “inevitable” a lot lately. I think this means the dems may be nearing the ropes...

It couldn’t possibly be the huge number of hispanics in TX,

Here in CA we’ve seen a massive influx of hispanics. That’s when CA turned blue. Don’t forget we elected Reagan here in CA. It’ll never happen again with the tide of legal and illegal Mexicans.

CA is the least of TX;s problems. Your problem is Mexico.

Keep the faith, bubba. Plenty of good folks are also moving here from the states that helped establish Texas in the first place. Political science is NOT a predictive science. Anything can happen, from minute to minute, that could change the entire dynamic.

Personally this woman is an idiot. However, as far as Texas turning Democrat there is no doubt about it. The term Democrat today serves as a convenient word referring to the members of the Third World. The members of the Third World are presently in the process of conquering America. We are almost gone. The Third World only has to start consolidating their hold.

The Michigan Secretary of state came out in support of electoral distribution by district the other day. I’d say its pretty likely to happen because delegates at the state convention voted something like 1700 to 300 in favor.

It would basically negate fraud in Detroit and Flint.

People overlook that reality, they also don't realize that conservatism in Texas is active, passionate, confident and committed to winning battles, and is based on religion, it has a depth and strength, conservatives in Texas know who they are and like it.

“Demographics are not in the GOP’s favor.”

No, they’re not. In a couple generations, people who appreciate the United States will easily be outnumbered. Then what? Liberal progressives are on track to ruin the country the way they ruined most major cities.

Texas will turn blue. California was solidly Republican just a couple generations ago, and gave us both Nixon and Reagan as Presidents. Then California’s people changed from predominantly whites who vote Republican, to a land of minority immigrants who vote overwhelmingly Democrat. The same is slowly but surely happening in Texas. This was the Democrat plan regarding Third World immigration — If you can’t change the way people vote, then change the people. Demographics are destiny, and Texas’ (and America’s) destiny is unfortunately toward big government statism.

Good post.

I remember visiting California (from Ohio) back in the early 70s and being so impressed with it. Cali truly is a bellwether for culture for the rest of the US.

The progressive takeover there certainly foreshadows what is happening throughout the US at various rates.

The WSJ had a story the week on how Colo, Nev, Virginia, etc went blue in a 20 yr timespan.

You’re presupposing that those leaving California are liberals. Why flee Mecca?

This argument also assumes Anglos will vote blue. It ignores the continuing racial political divide. If you think Anglos will settle in for permanent “minority rule” it’s a mistake. Just look at housing patterns and the way blue voters run for the safety of conservative housing, school and business areas. That’s reality and that’s not going to change.
