Well here we are. It’s just been a few days since the 2022 midterm elections and it appears that Republicans have won both houses of congress. Thank god that here in Texas we were spared the damage that Frances O’Rourke (AKA Beto) could have unleashed on our great state but we will save that for later.
Let’s talk about the change in the political makeup here in Texas. Let’s look at my personal experience.
I was born in the 1960’s during the Kennedy administration. Grew up in the 60’ and 70’ (Decades of the greatest music ever written). Today I can see that there has been a huge amount of change here in the last 60 years.
At the time of the 1960 Presidential election (Kennedy) the State of Texas was very blue. My grandparents, Aunts and Uncles and Parents were all die hard Democrats. This is because My grandparents lived through the Roosevelt era and the rest were enamored with the young and vibrant president embodied by John F. Kennedy.
These were the glory days for the Democratic party in Texas when they weren’t out hanging and shooting black and Hispanics out in the woods, doing everything in their power to stop non white children from going to school and making sure that Whites and Non Whites didn’t mix in public places. I was even told by my Father who was a member of law enforcement in Dallas county for 40 years that in the 60’s and 70’ that the mafia was in control of Dallas county and found out from personal experience that this continued into the early 1980’s all under the Democratic leadership of the time.
Now don’t get me wrong. The Republican party has had its flaws. Richard Nixon, George Bush Jr. (who was handed a job he wasn’t prepared for) among others. There are a few bad apples in every barrel But The Democratic party today are not leaders, they depend on bullying us into submission and lining their pockets instead of working towards helping the common citizen and inspiring unity instead of division.
We are subjected to Men participating in women’s sports, Sex education in kindergarten, Paying off other peoples bill, Not being to buy groceries for our family or even buy gas to get to work and and let’s not forget the GREEN NEW DEAL. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
An example of one of the technologies they are in the process of forcing on us by driving gas prices through the roof is electric cars. During one of the recent hurricanes in Florida the electric vehicles were catching fire from the ocean water that was flooding some of the streets (mostly because most people that are to stupid to not drive through high water). But that’s not the best part. From the time the fire department would show up to put out the fire it took as much as 4 hours to get the fire completely extinguished. It takes less than an hour with gas fueled cars
So the people of Texas have sent a message by the recent election. RED is alive in the Republic of Texas. Thank you Ronald Reagan, The Great Communicator for turning the tide. I would be an avid Texan even if it were still blue but I sleep better knowing that there is hope for the future.
BTW Beto is looking for a job. You got any yard work he can do?
