<quoted text>Conservative Democrats governed Texas for many years and invested in our future. They were responsive to people's needs and invested wisely. The Republicans came along and sat on their hands and as long as they preached anti abortion and gun rights they were elected by the stupid rabble. It is time Texas became a little more progressive before our infrastructure goes to rack and ruin.
Once again, you failed to read a single sentence from a book. If you did you would know that the conservative Democrats found that during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations they had more in common with the conservative Republicans that their own party.

Most of the south is made up of honest, hard working, SELF RELIANT, law abiding conservatives. They elect people who support their values.

The above GOTP posts are not real. They are the work of a racist anti woman idiot. I stand for women's rights, including the right to an abortion, but only up to what was permitted in Roe V Wade.

Republicans want small government, except when it comes to woman's rights. Republicans, mostly male, want to govern a woman's reproductive rights, and they want to expand their 1950's view into the bed room. Too bad the young women of today have not had the opportunity to live when abortion was banned. It was very oppressive, caused thousands of deaths and millions of unworkable forced marriages. Now unwed mothers are dumped on the welfare rolls, which the Republicans refuse to fund. The want the baby born, then they want the baby to die of lack of medical care and food.

It is stupid, but that is the Republican Party - the Party of Stupid. Just look at what they are doing today.

Republicans have the lowest approval level in the history of the US Government. You know why? Just read the above postings.(And I'm certain, the following postings.

I was very glad to see her take a stand against the entire Texas senate and vote against the bill that protected ranchers (SB 1163). She is not afraid to stand alone. Well, it was her and one other senator that voted against the bill, but you get my point. Ranchers are rich and don't need protection from thieves. There are much more pressing issues than ranching in Texas.

(G)et (O)ff (T)he (P)lantation. You are being held down by the party that supposedly is rescuing you. Why do you think you are no better off as a democrat than you were 60 years ago? Get a job, be self-sufficient and you too, can be off of welfare, section 8 housing, Obamaphones, food stamps. Get off of the democrat plantaion.

So basically what I am reading is that the whole basis for anti-Wendy sentiment is because of guns and dead babies?

The abortion bill she fought against, while it does include stops to late-term abortions, was a fight about allowing women in the poor income areas of Texas the access to healthcare, including contraceptives, preventive check-ups, and yes abortions. The bill that was passed, requires certain standards that will force closed the majority of clinics in Texas except for about 5 or 6 in the entire state.

Thus, Wendy's debate against the bill wasn't to allow late term abortions, but rather the bill itself was completely against it's believed intentions of improving women's healthcare. If you disagree go watch the footage from debate and hear how time and time again when amendments to bill regarding rape and allowing abortions for those women who don't have access to the new stricter clinics were denied it is clear this bill wasn't about women's health at all, but rather a push in the direction for a ban on all abortions regardless of circumstances.

Next, can we please bring into the equation the education of Texas? How can we sit here and elect someone connected to Perry and continue to under-fund our education system over and over? Don't we have a responsibility to our children to make sure that education is fully funded and a priority in Texas?

How do the ISD/s keep getting money to build NEW schools EVERYTIME a bond comes up? DAMN! If a LaPorte school get to be 15 years old the BULLDOSE it and build a new one!

Is that a statement that you feel education is properly funded?

You say Wendy can't be elected!! I know someone who can: Julian Castro, the mayor of SanAntonio. I am very impressed by him and anyone who can manage SanAntonio can manage Texas. The only problem is that the Governor of Texas has far less power than the Mayor of SanAntonio. His twin brother is a US representative from SanAntonio.

I think we can safely say that the schools are OVER funded. Texas spends $9927 per student each year. That's more than United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Finland, South Korea, France, Denmark and Japan, all of whom outscore the U.S. in Math and Science.

Cut the funding of the monuments to school boards. Start teaching our kids how to read and write!

Oh, WOW! They are TWINS! That must make them uniquely qualified to lead a state government. The media loved Henry Cisneros too.

Overfunded? Haha you make me laugh. Texas spends less than almost all of the other 50 states. Some have us 48th others as high as 38. Regardless, while you are correct in the fact that other countries spend less and score higher you fail to take into account that 40% of spending is non-academic. We pay for busses, lunches, and extra-curriculars where as Japan does not.

Clearly that can account for the discrepancies. Finally, you do know reading and writing isn't math and science right?

Well, if he becomes a felon, he will most certainly be voting for the democrat candidate.

Quite true. And the other 49 still don't score better than Russia in math.

After criticizing me for not being to read, you comment on my post with a statement that shows absolutely no contradiction nor agreement to what I said, you just replied with a mindless, Russia is smarter. Please actually read my post or should we increase education spending so at least your kids can.
