#TXLEGE, #atxcouncil: Presler's Oversimplification

"If a ruler pays attention to lies,
All his servants become wicked."
Proverbs 29:12

National activist Scott Presler was in town yesterday and made an observation that was...not incorrect:

For the record: We are currently typing this blog post about half a mile from where this video was filmed. We can attest to its observational accuracy. Unfortunately, experience has taught us that Preseler's proposed solution isn't good enough.

Presler's point might be valid in places like Seattle where the D's control both the local and the state gov. That's not the case here. Austin, whatever else you want to say about it, is still part of TEXAS. TEXAS as in the GOP controls everything.

Nevertheless, scenes like the one Scott Presler detailed yesterday persist.

The truth, of course, is that the Texas GOP could address this issue in six hours if they had the political will. They don't. See here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here. Why address this issue when it's such a good fundraiser?!?

Bottom Line:  While Scott Presler's observation about our municipal government is correct, he's unfortunately overlooking that our state government is likewise failing to use the jurisdiction it already possesses.
