Texas will remain Republican for another decade at least. It is certainly not going to be a battleground state in the next several presidential elections.

I was at the bus stop to the left hating everyone and hoping the bus would come to take me back to my apartment so i could drink because I had just bombed a final and had to watch all these stupid happy people. I think me negative energy is partly to blame for what happened.

I'm from and have lived in Texas my entire life. I've lived in Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. Yet I've somehow managed to only spend a total of 2 days in Dallas and know basically nothing about it other than what people tell me. My impression while there was that it's just a wealthier Houston. How is it different from Houston besides that?

Yeah, central Austin is expensive for Texas but relative to the rest of the country's trendy cities its drastically cheaper. Still, the increase is pretty absurd. My very lovely little college apartment which was $700 rent in 2009 is now $1200.

Yeah I'm not sure whitman is a good example for open carry being bad. Didn't he end up pinned down by dozens of civilians shooting at him?

Hays County is issuing gay marriage licenses, so chalk another one up for blue (it's grey on the map). Also the wedding industry is big up here in the Hill Country so this will probably be a bit of a boom.

Paxton issued a formal AG opinion saying clerks can refuse to honor SSM on the basis of their sincerely held religious beliefs. This is going to be nasty.

also lol:

quote:

Paxton noted that clerks who refuse to issue licenses can expect to be sued, but added that “numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs,” in many cases without charge.

Rick Perry's fall from eternal leader of Texas and presidential front runner to not even making the Republican debates is so incredibly satisfying. Goodbye forever Rick you fucker.

Every major city in Texas with the exception of Ft. Worth is majority blue and voted that way in the last two national elections. Dallas has a fantastic gay community, and Houston just saw the end of term of their gay mayor (who served the maximum amount of terms possible) who is being succeeded by a black man.

The narrative that Austin is some lone liberal bastion in a sea of red is laughably overblown. It's just that they're VERY concerned that you know they're liberal, and the other cities don't care.

I really only hear the "blue in a sea of red" thing from non-Texans who moved here from out of state to justify moving to Texas/why Austin is ok despite Texas Bad.

Personally I grew up in Houston and have lived in San Antonio and Austin, and while I prefer Austin I like them all for what they are.

There's plenty of people in Texas who will never vote for Hillary, but might be tilted enough to vote for Johnson. Enough to make Trump's showing in Texas to look really, really bad.

My dads voted Republican in every election since 76, he ran for state rep as a republican in the 80s in Houston (and lost bigly), he went to the 92 RNC in the astrodome, hes voting for johnson.
