The state that just elected Ted Cruz and has basically made Rick Perry king?

Once it gets its voter I.D. laws in place, the Dims will not have a chance -- which is true for all but a handful of states.

Might be a while, but Hispanics are by far the fastest growing population and right now don't they vote about 80% Democrat? Doesn't seem that far fetched that this could eventually happen. Welcome to El Socialista Republica del Estados Unidos (my Spanish is shaky at best, but something like that).

That's only if they don't pass an amnesty bill

73%, according to the last election. This won't always be the case, though. Hispanics are generally, deeply religious and though there are a lot of Catholic Democrats, I think the Dems will lose many of these people as they go farther to the left, fueled by their perception of a "mandate."

Also, when they elevate as a group in society, they won't like the ridiculous tax rates that fuel useless programs any more than republicans do. There are FAR more Hispanic Republicans than black republicans and I see that number rising in the not-too-distant-but-not-too-near-either future.

I agree completely with her. I started a thread about this after the 2012 election. Dems own the border counties, Austin and one of the counties around Dallas. It may take a while, but it is gonna happen.

If that be the case, I'd suggest the R's start trying to do away with the Electoral College right away.

We'll see.

Texas Hispanics vote Democrat way less than the rest of the country.

But to answer her statement. Sure Texas will go Democrat someday, but California and New York will go Republican again someday. It's just the way the pendulum swings.

GOP needs to start being very friendly to the Latino vote and have a good immigration reform plan for them.

Just keep the vote 50/50 with them.

I don't see Texas turning blue though...hell Mississippi is about the same percentage black as are other Southern states and they are nowhere near being blue. And black people vote Dem at a much higher rate.

Voter ID laws in Texas also will curb many illegals from voting.

Political parties are always revising their platforms. 2 party systems tend to stay 2 party systems.

Everyone is laughing, but Texas used to be dems

Ann Richards was as much of an icon as RP.

But that's old school Democrat. The new democrat party with all of the whacko's is really sad.

Do you really think that voter fraud is making that much of an impact?
