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.
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.
The future democrat USA will be nothing like the democrat utopia that North Eastern elitists envision.
Over my natural born TEXAN body!
Assuming Republican congresscritters had districts that voted for Romney and Demon-rats had districts that went for the Assclown, here is how I believe 2012 would have fared in the Golden state:
Romney: 15 Electoral votes
Assclown: 40 Electoral votes
As it is, the clown got all 55 votes.
You don’t understand that California was never conservative, merely moderate republican.
Texas has never been liberal, only conservative, they are and always have been two entirely different states.
