The Lone Star State never disappoints in its ability to bring total insane craziness to American politics. They love to attempt to live their historical image of cowboys and to this day are looking for someone to lasso and hurt. Texas politics is getting more absurd with each passing day. The only bright spot is Wendy Davis running for Governor.
What is new in Texas?
Well one of the most conservative United States Senators Republican John Cornyn has been deemed 'too liberal' and not a strong enough supporter of Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz. As a result, Congressman Steve Stockman has decided to challenge Cornyn in the Republican primary. The incumbent Senator has been horrible on human rights, the environment, healthcare and education but he is 'too liberal' for Texas Republicans.
How about Stockman?
Perhaps he can best be summed up by this one quote from Twitter, "The best thing about earth is if you poke holes in it oil and gas comes out". He has compared President Obama to Saddam Hussein.
In the Republican race for Governor, you will find another crazy seeking the nomination. Larry Kilgore is running on having Texas secede from the Union. Among his other platform idea from over the years has been the death penalty for LGBT Americans. Don't feel that the man is just picking on our community since he also advocates the same punishment for abortion and adultery. After all, it is mandated in the Bible.
