Exactly! People who have yet to finish high school, never had a job or any other familial responsibilities and otherwise, don't know Snit from Shinola are allowed to vote.
Absolutely. I think lowering the voting age to 18 was a huge mistake.
Needs to be 25.
Maybe, but I remember being 19 facing the draft and joining the army. Being held accountable but not being able to buy beer, vote, or even marry without a parents permission. I was pretty resentful about that. I think the real answer is that we need to actually teach our kids to be grownups and not axpect anything for nothing. There is always a cost.

Republicans in Texas better wake up and figure out how to get Hispanic votes and suburban votes. In my area which historically has been strongly Republican, I now have a Democrat state senator and a Democrat state rep who doesn't even live in the district. And my Congressman, Marchant, just barely won.

Republicans need to wake up!
Maybe we need a waiting period, say 5 years, before an immigrant to Texas can vote in State or Local elections?

10 years for transplants from CA, NY, NJ or WA. :mrgreen:

Kidding, of course. Kinda.
Hey! 10 year waiting period?? Well, I won't be lying if I said that I'd be willing to give up my votes if each of my concessions means two or more fewer Democratic votes.
Those of us in Galveston County are thinking the same thing. But our fear isn't about the Californians, but rather the ignorant hoards streaming from Harris county. Something happened there. I am not sure what, but a sudden wave of stupidity suddenly took over. Has anyone checked out the water supply? Where is it commong from? Flint MI.?

I'm astounded by the number of Beto signs I see driving around my 'hood.
Just ordered a Cruz sign for the front yard. Total with shipping came to $17.76.
For some reason, I don't think that was an accident.

I may buy a Beto sign, so I can spray paint a circle/slash over it.
Or maybe top it with a banner that says "Socialist".

:patriot:
You can be sure that the people with the Beto signs didn't pay a cent for them. Apparently, Cruz hasn't raised or spent much money. Is he taking this race seriously? Beto is a no named leftist who should get his buttocks stomped. Cruz is a successful conservative known to be pretty honest. It shouldn't even be close. But it looks like Cruz is taking the voter for granted. I'm scared. When the leftist take over, Where next? Idaho? North Dakota. I'm getting too old to start over in such a cold place.

I would hang a sign, but there are none to be found. It's almost September, and there is no indication that Cruz is even running.

Signs are also available in bulk, and other items are available under the products link.

Can Beto win? Sure he can. Will he win? I doubt it. Those of us the media ignores must continue to show up and cast votes.
:patriot: :txflag:
Thanx :thumbs2:

I think a lot of people are afraid to show support, or even state their position when asked by pollsters, due to fear of ANTIFA and their like. I know three people who say they are supporting Beto to people they do not know but are very open of their support for Cruz when in private and they will tell you it's because of kids with multi-colored hair, bicycle locks and masks.
When we become so afraid to make a stand and speak out, becomes the time that we deserve to lose. Surely not everyone is afraid, some of us have courage. I would hang a sign, but there are none to be found. It's almost September, and there is no indication that Cruz is even running.
