Texas is ruled by unhinged, right-wing crazies.

The Deplorable State of Texas Politics

Below is a link to the best article I’ve seen outlining just how low we’ve sunk in Texas, where unhinged right-wing zealots have taken over the Legislature.

The article, written by Lawrence Wright and published in the July 10 & 17, 2017, issue of The New Yorker magazine, describes how we got here and just how much damage white, Christian crazies have wreaked on a once-proud state. Most frightening of all: Texas is a bellwether for America.

America’s Future is Texas.

Sad, but true.
