Congratulations on your pending move to Texas. I moved to Texas from NYC in 2007 (Beck followed me). I love it. You will too. That being said, the faster you learn certain realities about Texas politics at the state level, the better.
The Texas Legislature, especially on the House side, is filled with crony-corporatist Republican establishment types. They stay in power by masquerading as conservatives during the six weeks before Primary day. The Texas Republican primary will take place on March 4.
You're being used.
Last night, my friend Brandon Darby posted a letter you received from
Now who, pray tell, is Harvey Hilderbran?!?
- First things first, Harvey Hilderbran is a 26 year incumbent; while he had some decent votes during George W. Bush's gubernatorial term, his recent behavior is lacking.
- He games the system to avoid tough votes.
- As chairman of the Texas House Ways and Means committee during the 83rd legislature, he chose to promote corporate welfare at the expense of broad-based tax relief.
- He is soft on Obamacare.
- He votes for every establishment priority.
Texas is a fantastic place to live. Our conservative principles have produced a business climate unequaled in the United States. You'll love it. Unfortunately, one side effect is that the RINO's in our legislature routinely seek opportunities to grandstand. Be very careful when Texas House Republicans act like your best friend.
