AUSTIN (Nexstar) — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the state's Capital city Monday night, telling Democrats in Travis County much of what happens in terms of democratic success in the 2020 election will come from central Texas.

"Texas is ground zero for us in the next election," Pelosi said to the sold-out crowd at the Travis County Democratic Party's Johnson Bentsen Richards Dinner. The dinner is the party's major fundraising event and was named in remembrance of Texas' democratic legacy: 36th U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, four-term Senator Lloyd Bentsen and the state's 45th Governor Ann Richards.

"Know your power, this state is so important," Pelosi told donors. "When it turns — and it will soon — it will make a difference not only in Texas and the lives of individual people here, it will make a difference in the country and it will make a difference in the world."...


If you're not already organized and ready to fight the good fight, you're late.
Cui bono?

Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

The rats may not rule the entire state, but they damned sure rule the big cities..... Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, etc.  And no matter how we on the right vote in those elections, they always seem to overwhelmingly defeat us, somehow.   

Time for unity in America! (better late than never)

Probably because most right-thinking people avoid living in the city.

And don't rule out some mischief at the polls created by the big-city machine.
