I’ve see it repeatedly posted here and elsewhere, over and over that Dallas and other major population centers in TX are becoming more and more leftist and like most other large population centers.
You deny TX major population centers like Austin, Dallas and Houston are becoming increasingly liberal and more controlling with many becoming more govenrment dependent in these population centers?
Nope. I don’t deny that there are liberal areas. I posted earlier about my concern that bringing these companies can bring their liberal employees.
But to claim that population caused the problem on its own, as you seemed to be, is off the mark based on a population vs liberal policies comparison.
There are other factors at work.
You really are an example of why California failed, you despise Texas as much as any lefty on DU, that 57.2% republican voting state in 2012, drives you nuts rather than pleasing you, and giving you hope for conservatism and serving as an example.
a load of doo.
Population shift does not account (alone) for liberalization.
The libs target urban area for control. That will happen without an influx of business and workers.
a load of “working” people and business won't hurt the state. It can make it more powerful than US GDP and allow Texas to succeed or dominate the rest.
Besides If Texas leads the way maybe a alliance of like minded states can form a union, or bulwark against encroaching socialist take over.
opportunity, my friend.
Getting rid of riffraff is the citizens job.
I don't see him denying it, but if you were actually from here you would realize that the urban centers are becoming more liberal because the conservatives are moving out: mostly to the suburbs just outside the city.
I'm in a county just outside Dallas. I don't think there is a single elected Democrat in the entire county. It was unusual to see an Obama sticker here last year, and I think that was someone commuting in from Dallas to one of several corporate headquarters -- think PepsiCo, FritoLay, DrPepper, EDS (although they were acquired by HP, there is still a big presence here), JC Penney.
As I posted earlier, I'm not worried about an influx of liberals into Texas. The worst of them wouldn't be caught dead here. They would rather go onto public assistance and spend the day posting diatribes about Texas every time there is a natural disaster or accident.
The ones that move to Texas are already conservatives, or are apolitical and are easily convinced.
