The senator, spawned from longtime Texas libertarian Ron Paul, has a surprising message for politicians in the dark-red state where he grew up:
Speaking to the county Republican organization in Houston Saturday evening, Paul warned that Texas “will be a Democratic state within 10 years if you don’t change.”
“That doesn’t mean we give up on what we believe in, but it means we have to be a more welcoming party,” Paul said, as reported by CNN. “We have to welcome people of all races. We need to welcome people of all classes – business class, working class.”
“We need to have people with ties and without ties, with tattoos and without tattoos; with earrings, without earrings,” he said. “We need a more diverse party. We need a party that looks like America.”
As the Christian Science Monitor notes, he’s essentially saying that the state needs to be more inclusive of Hispanics, who represent 40 percent of the state’s voters.
You keep saying “diverse” and “inclusion”, GOP.
I do not think you know what those words mean. But, hey… thanks for the laughs.
It’s sad that this makes my heart hurt, that Dru has to do this, but I am so glad that she did!
McDonnell’s indictment comes in the midst of the General Assembly’s annual legislative session and is likely to accelerate efforts to overhaul the state’s ethics and gifts laws, long considered some of the most lax in the nation. McAuliffe and leading state lawmakers in both parties have both already said they support such changes.
The criminal prosecution also marks stunning crash for a politician who was considered for the Republican vice presidential nomination in 2012 and just a year ago was considered a credible future for president."

Of course Hillary Clinton is now ahead of Chris Christie this week (and thankfully so… )
But, there’s only one poll that counts and it’s on election day and that day is over two and a half years away.
I mean, I love Hillary’s chances, but like - it’s too early to do polling on 2016.
Let’s talk about the more important 2014 midterms first, please? There are a fair number of Governor’s races this year, too.
The trouble with our democratic republic is that it is inherent upon people to form a logical and rational argument for their beliefs and a willingness to engage in peaceful, civilized discussion with others who have different beliefs and form an understanding compromise that benefits ALL of the people.
With all due respect there is a group of people in this country that can be neither rational in their argument nor respectful for others and holding our country hostage while professing to love the very laws, ideas, and culture that our Country was founded on and which they are obstructing."
A teenage orphan desperate for a real home and, believing God helps those who help themselves, went to a Florida church to ask someone to adoopt him.
You know, considering the GOP’s stance on social programs, I’m surprised we don’t see more of this, but even more than that, I hope Davion gets a family. Most kids his age can’t wait to get a driver’s license, leave home, go to college.
