Blooming Blue Texas

Deep in the heart of Texas, a bountiful blue is burgeoning across the vast plains, like beautiful bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis), Democrats are blooming, as Texans are ready to reject the stale system of the Russian Red Republican Rapt, while warming to a bright blue illuminating light, people want to flourish and thrive. Texans appear eager to fully embrace their state motto, “Friendship,” by electing future candidates who will stand with them, not stand over them. Perhaps when one thinks of Texas in the future, BBQ and butterflies, (Monarch butterflies that is), will spring to mind, instead of the same ole Republican system. Evolution is a fact, and Texans are evolving, progressing, and respecting the human connection we all share, although Texas is the “Lone Star State” it’s not standalone, it is integrated, yet another reason to love the people of Texas. Texans are stepping up to the Democratic blue plate special, finally realizing the (D) after a person’s name does not stand for “devil” and instead represents people who entered politics to serve, not self-enrichment. Texas is a large state (check it out on a Sharpie free map, it’s big) so, it might take longer for good news to freely travel, remember Juneteenth? Well, this time, there will not be a two and a half year delay. Come on Texans, your state gem stone is blue topaz, even the state dog is a Blue Lacy. It’s high time Texas secede from the Russian Red Republican Rapt, and fly free like a Northern mockingbird, in the big blue Texas sky. Speaking of mockingbirds, (y’all know I’m talking about, To Kill a Mockingbird), being Southern does not equate to being racist, choose the path of Atticus, Jem, Scout, or Boo Radley. There are far too many Texans, abounding with good and grace, to spiral down the Bob Ewell route of hate. Embrace American True Blue Democracy, and leave the Russian Red Republican Rapt for good. To quote the great Texas born Queen B, “middle fingers up, put them hands high, wave it in his face, tell him boy bye.”

“When the culture of any organization mandates that it is more important to protect the reputation of a system and those in power than it is to protect the basic human dignity of the individuals who serve that system or who are served by that system, you can be certain that the shame is systemic, the money is driving ethics, and the accountability is all but dead.” Brené Brown, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone
