Converting three Millenial Davis supporters to Abbott
"The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil."
21st st. Co-Op -- Earlier tonight, we visited a friend in the the West Campus area. The conversation turned to the Governor's race. We made an offhand comment that instantly converted three (very, very) soft Wendy Davis supporters into committed backers of Greg Abbott. To be honest, this author was surprised by the strength of the reaction. It took one word....
This author casually mentioned that Greg Abbott was the first major candidate in history to accept campaign contributions in BITCOIN and that the BITCOIN community is moving to Austin as a result. These kids were floored. They simply had no idea.
These kids aren't particularly political, but they know BITCOIN is the right side of history. When they realized a decision Greg Abbott made several months ago is going to bring BITCOIN closer to them, they were genuinely greatful.
It's become a cliche to say that disruptive innovation is going to radically transform the world over the next decade. It's still true. Those on the right side of history will reap a whirlwind.
Apparently, it's also good politics.
There's a lesson there; if people are willing to learn it!!!
