    How long will it be before Texas becomes a blue state?

    I have this fantasy of the Latinos, women, young voters, and  LBJ type democrats getting together and turning Texas into a blue state. I know the republicans will do everything they can to delay that day, but the demographics are changing our way.  This would be a game changer. Imagine all those house seats, all those electoral votes. With Texas we could roll back the Reagan-Bush mess. Oh Happy Days.

    Hi Rose!  BlueTex is a growing movement!  Leftover Confederate oppression and profit-prioritizing politics will begin leaving right behind Governor Perry.  Not only will it make Texas a more humane place to live, but the surrounding planet also.  "As Texas bends, America is so inclined".  Much work, much reward!

    This is the first I've heard of Bluetex. I am glad there is such an organization. Demographics by itself won't do it.  I hope there is coorination with the Spanish speaking community and radio stations. It must be hard for democrats living outside of urban areas in Texas. I remeber being told when I was thinking about moving to Texas Being told by a Texas friend to "change your license plate immediately and keep your mouth shut and you should be all right." I hope it's changed since then but I don't think it has. At least Blue tex is working for it. Keep us posted. .Blue Texas could be a real game changer.

    Hi, Nice fantacy. Texas is filled with right wing. It is part of white establishment. Texas was lost to liberals before it became a republic. After all it was anexed to USA by Imperial ambitions of the whie supremacy movement which is unlderying philosophy of present and past goverments in this country.
