Quit putting words in my mouth, I never said I hated Texas. I hate that our politicians have to entrench themselves in such stupid childish politics more than actual legislation, and our governor is the biggest baby of them all. Same goes for Cornyn, but not Republicans like Hutchinson or Dewhurst.


Really? Dewhurst is completely ineffective and is more right-wing than Perry. GOP senators are strongly considering changing the senate rules to take power away from the lite gov if he's reelected.

I know you are Liberal since I've read some of your posts but I'm not saying your wrong or anything. Just wanted to say that.

Is it wrong for me to think that I like the way Texas is? Why need "change" when Texas is doing GREAT?

I seem to recall Dewhurst having been in some sort of personal misconduct scandel back when I was living in TX. Wasn't there something that happened a number of years ago? Has it all been forgotten?

Default Perry or Hutchsion

Let all Independents and Democrats vote for Kay Bailey Hutchsion in the Primary. Lets end it for photo-op Perry. Then vote for the candidate of choice in the general election, lets make Texas history in the primary.

Who will you vote for Perry or Kaye Bailey.

I will vote for whoever promises in blood to lower property taxes.
i hate them both. they are way too conservative and hateful for my tastes. i'll hold my nose and vote for hutchison in the repug primary since she is probably the least hateful of the two.

Can you give me some reasons why they're hateful? I'm just curious.

Default Perry kicks a$$

Wow, one little endorsement from Palin and it was all over. To bad the Dem's don't have anyone to hold a candle to the barracuda.
