Texas as you know it is on a time clock for
radical political change which you won't like.
A lot of people are in denial about it. Texas is going the way of California because of Hispanics and blacks. Right now whites and Hispanics are about 40% each of the population and blacks about 13%. Democrats will control it in less than 5 years.

Yeah, right. Get back to me in 5 years and we will see if your prediction comes true. Just like the world ending in 12 years if we don't fund Donkey Face Alexandria Cortex's New Green Deal BS.

I've been saying for years now that lefties flee the rats nests they come from and proceed to foul their new nests the same way, but faster. It appears to me that this disease will not cause the loss of limbs, but will result in the death of the sick patient unless radical changes are made soon.
That said, the re-election of Donald Trump should give a breathing room to educate the people. But there again bloomers is spending so much indoctrination money it's also possible he may sway the "minds" of average moderate voters. After all, repetitious advertising works to sell cars and soap, he's banking on being able to sell his ugly "Big Daddy" ideology, and we'll all stop drinking big gulps too, or else!

Gee, I guess I'll have to stand corrected after seeing the in-depth analysis as to Texas' political future presented here. Why hang around in Texas as the outcome is so certain? I figure I'll just move back to the Northeast, surrender my guns, contribute all of my money and possessions to a Blue state, and just wait for my inevitable demise...NOT!

Before the Mexican conquest of California, that state voted for Nixon 3 times, Reagan twice, and Bush 41 once. Now a GOP candidate has no chance to win a state wide election there. Texas public high schools now are about 25% white. Hispanics will soon be the new majority. Each year that goes by Democrats get stronger thanks to the changing demographics. It's coming sooner or later. If not in 5 years, then 6 or 7.

Sorry, I must have missed a state wide Democrat in Texas? Who is it? Not the Governor, or Lt. Governor, or Attorney General, etc.

There are no Democrats in state wide offices in Texas. The Republicans also control both houses of the legislature.

The Second Amendment and the re-election of Donald Trump is not going to save us. The real story on Bernie is that the Democratic machinery and the deep state know that he will lose. They will publicly support him in order to be able to say to the far left that "they gave it their all." But the Dems really want Trump to win reelection because they have darker more long reaching plans.

There is at least 300 million dollars in dark money that the Democrats and the Leftist are pumping to Senate and House races. Their real goal is to keep the House and win the Senate. If they do that, Trump will be unable to do anything in his second term ...including getting more Justices for the Supreme Court and even replacing cabinet members.

In the mean time the Democratic congress will spend all their energies on attacking Trump, investigating anything and everything, side stepping the Constitution, opening the borders, handing out rights and benefits to anyone who will vote for them, and dragging the nation and its economy to a stand still.

And worse, they will gut the Electoral College so that it will play no significant roll in the 20204 election. The Marxist Democrats will own America. And when 2024 comes along, the deep state Democrats will turn to the left and say "we let you have your shot...and it didn't work...now its your turn to back us."

The only way Trump's re-election can mean anything and accomplish anything, is if Republicans and Independents and all Americans who love this country, make a super human effort, financially and in terms of volunteering time, to not only re-elect the President, but also give him the Senate and House he will need to Keep America Great.
If we fail President Trump, we are failing America...and the Second Amendment will just become a fond memory.

All depends on how long Trump's coat tails are. I do not see the Republicans losing the Senate, and there is a good chance of flipping the House. Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. (Apologies to Dennis Miller.)

Thank You for binging some facts to the discussion. This idea that the spread of the socialist view points are a result of transplants from California is at the very least ignorant. Along with the changing demographics that you mentioned I would also add that our public schools and universities brainwash the youth with their socialist agenda. Notice how whenever school vouchers are mentioned the Left rises in unison to defeat those measure. The mainstream media are also complicit. NBC MSNBC CBS ABC NY TIMES WASHINTON POST. all have a much larger influence than the few million folks that have fled California or NY. Wake up folks look at what your kids are bringing home from school. They have your children eight hours a day and her filling those young impressionable minds with garbage.

The claims that Texas is going purple or blue are mostly made by the democrat talking heads.

Do you remember the "rising star" Beto? He was lauded for losing his bid for US Senator by only a few points - but he outspent his opponent by 3 or 4 to 1. If he had anything to offer to Texas voters, he should have won that election by 15 or 20 points.

That isn't true at all. Anyone who actually looks at demographics and especially those for people under 30, and doesn't see what's coming in Texas are just being delusional. I'm sure there were people in California who said it wouldn't happen there either just like the ones in Virginia.

I'm not sure about a GOP's chances here, but you do have a point about demographics. This is why open borders are so important to the coastal elite. Why try to win votes when you can simply import them...along with a surf class that will keep wages low and profits high.
This isn't about Democrat vs Republican, its about the elite ruling class vs the rest of us. We are inching closer and closer to a feudal society.
The manufacturing sector has collapsed, the middle class has died. Our institutions of higher learning are pouring out Leftist ideologue millennials that, as they age, will come into positions of power. Their twisted world view will reshape our political and economic landscape. We will be living in a modern day surfdom. Seen the movie Elysium? It's prophetic.

I'm glad my son has chosen not to reproduce.

Those who wrap themselves around demographics assume that monolithic voting blocs are based on race, ethnicity, sex, religion and various other attributes. All white men vote Republican, all white women vote Democrat, all African Americans vote Democrat, as do all Latinos, all gays also vote Democrat. This is absurd on its face. Anyway, I'm done arguing with the naysayers who insist that Texas will soon turn blue. Those of you who don't live here shouldn't worry about it. Those who do shouldn't worry about it either. Vote, contribute what you can to candidates who espouse keeping the state red.

Of course, any generalization can fail in specific cases, but to deny demographic voting blocs is to deny reality.

I'm glad you aren't in the back of the bird working on me or sharing a foxhole with me. All the negativity and surrender is too much to take. I think I'll go die now.

The only race that votes GOP as a group is whites. Blacks, Hispanics, and even Asians vote overwhelmingly Democrat. Democrats control every large city because of non-white demographics. California is permanently lost because whites are no longer the majority there. Virginia has turned and Georgia is at risk now. Texas is about to go down the same road. At some point we have to move beyond fear of being called racist and look for self preservation before we turn into a third world sewer of diversity. Our rights, including our 2A rights, depend on it.

Some of you need to watch a Trump-Rally, the depression is setting in and POTUS will cheer you up. Loser's depress themselves into failure (or with fanciful plans like another civil-war), Champions like Trump look at the landscape and find ways to win.

Demographics are real, but a lot of stereotypes are baked in, they are not absolute, and can be overcome with time.

The Trump rallies I have watched are probably 99% white. They will strategically plant some others with signs right behind him but that means nothing. I think some people assume all races embrace the same values, desires, culture and ambitions so therefore anyone can rationally be convinced to vote GOP. That is a major false assumption.

Be very careful HT. Political leanings are not based on race as much as they are based on culture. I've worked with and am friends with members of various "races" that would take issue with your comments. Culture is a driving factor if not THE driving factor. The Democrats/communists have been very effective for decades at brainwashing large swaths of the American population on BOTH sides of the aisle. They absolutely thrive on division, race hustling and identity politics. Be careful that you do not do the same. I will not have my name or this forum associated with the same.

I agree about culture to some extent but I would also say culture flows downhill from race and intelligence. Yes, there are exceptions to every rule but all I can do is look at reality and try to understand it. The way things are doesn't mean I wish they were that way or that I have some self serving agenda like the race hustlers. I think people and races are responsible for what they do.

Last time I'm going to warn you brother. Don't participate in the race baiting. Just don't. I'm lillyass white and I am NOT responsible for Nazis murdering millions. Saying someone is responsible for their race is damned ignorant. Walk away from this.

Agree with LW...

HT, you are very wrong about intelligence (limits) as a function of race...Retired now, but I worked 36 years in a technology company and almost everyone had at least Master's degrees in engineering. All different races, all wonderful people, and all very, very intelligent...

You really should drop that line of thinking here IMO, not only because it is completely incorrect, but because you may be insulting minorities on the forum.

Take any two babies, be it white, black, Asian, Latino... and place one into a family of educated, decent people and he'll turn into a productive member of society. Take the other and put him in the care of people who clearly don't have their own lives in order, and he will likely turn out the same way. Race has absolutely nothing to do with it. Aberrant human behavior is a learned process, not instinctive.
