“There’s groundwork that needs to be done in Texas that simply hasn’t been done,” Julián Castro, a Democrat and the mayor of San Antonio, told me during an interview on CNN. He noted that whereas in California Hispanics vote at rates that are ten per cent lower than those of the rest of the electorate, in Texas Hispanics are twenty-five per cent less likely to vote. But he insisted that change was coming. “Within the next six to eight years,” he said, “I believe Texas will be at least a purple state, if not a blue state.”--------Wouldn't it be great if someone started a silent revolution in Texas amongst the Hispanic population such that they began, individually, and quietly, to register to vote all across the state. Living room to living room the revolution could spread until the next election when they would vote the rednecks out of office - forever changing Texas for the better.AM....daydreaming....
