For decades now, Americans have heard every four years how “this is the most important election of our lifetime”. Now that we have finally arrived at an election that fits that billing, Texans are being subject to the “sore loser” behavior of the state’s donkey party. Many conservative Texans have gone from feeling like nostril burning thoroughbreds waiting for the gate to open at the Kentucky Derby to more of a ho-hum, when will it come attitude toward the primaries because of a small coven of liberal magistrates holding up the final decision on re-districting maps.
The Democratic judges who have perpetrated this drug-like slumber on Texas voters may have lessened the impact conservative voters in the Lone Star state have on choosing the Republican nominee for President, and they may even lowered the overall turnout in both primaries, but trust me – the slumber will end. In November the idea that this is the most important election in the history of this country will drive Texans to the polls to weigh in on the fundamental changes President Obama has promised to America.
Local and state primary races in many Texas counties will be important to the Republican dominated state because of inter party efforts to elect true conservatives and not allow the recent popularity of the party be co-opted by candidates who are Republican In Name Only, or RINO’s, as they are disparagingly referred to by longtime conservatives.
As for the nationwide contest for President, there is little doubt the Republican nominee for President will win easily in Texas. But Texas voters are likely to want to send a message to the more liberal of the fifty states by squashing Obama and the liberals in record numbers. Election night, regardless of a few liberal judges from the central part of the state, will be anything but ho-hum. For many it will either be a victory for Republicans in the most important election in history, or it will be the last straw of an ever intrusive unconstitutional attack on what America has been for over two hundred years.
