I love the hypocrisy. I don't understand why conservatives are so blind to it.

Repub lets Cubans and Venezuelans in - Repubs: "YAY!!!"
Dem lets Cubans and Venezuelans in - Repubs: "Biden is evil!"

Repub signs socialist CARES/PPP bill, farmer bailout, etc - Repubs: "YAY!!!"
Dem signs socialist infrastructure bill ' Repubs: "Biden is a socialist!"

Repub secretly sends immigrants on "ghost flights" to other cities - Repubs: "YAY!"
Dem secretly sends immigrants on "ghost flights" to other cities - Repubs: "Biden is in a conspiracy!"

-and-

Hurricane Sandy: Repubs: "No aid and money to the northeast region - no to socialism!"
Hurricane Ian: Repubs: "We have to send socialist aid and money to FL!"


Seriously, is any Repub willing to explain? No? I thought so - always crickets when it comes to "socialism".

Texas had always been a good spot for business. It has been so when Texas dominated buy democrats and it is so now. So I can't say the credit goes to Republicans for the business friendly environment.

That leaves me to wonder what exactly are the R's doing for Texas?

Property taxes are through the roof, education and Healthcare are not up to standard for a state it's size.

Sure, the major cities are doing well, but they are all run by democrats.

The Republican platform is basically:
1. Make voting harder.
2. Keep our kids clueless
3. Make it easier for it kids to get shot up
4. Keep minority groups in their place
5. Tell women what to do with their bodies
6. Block the state from receiving medical benefits
7. Own the dems
8. Kiss trumps big toes
9. Limit civil liberties
10. Screw the middle class to make the rich richer


Have you noticed how most of the rural areas of Texas (R country) are either stagnating or losing population, while the Democrat run cities are thriving? Not one of the Republicans major platforms are positive.

The R's run on social issues because they do nothing. Their motto is "I'm just going to sit here and keep everything like it is."

Personally, I like balanced government. Both sides coming to the table, sharing ideas so that all constituents have representation at the table. This form of government we have today where the goal of each party is to block everything that the other party does is not good for the country.

He did it as a compromise because the democrats said they would help come up with a solution to better control illegal immigration.

Spoiler alert: they lied

I couldn't agree more on the bolded. Despite the blowhard extremists, they'll be changes as many are forced out of their homes due to outrageous property taxes. Hopefully it'll get closer to balanced government which I am a fan of also.
