Quote of the Day
"In Texas, it is fairly clear about where this state stands on that issue. As recently as a constitutional amendment that passed, I believe, with 76% of the vote. The people of the state of Texas, myself included, believe marriage is between one man and one woman."
-- Rick Perry on same-sex marriage
Uh-huh. Let's see what else the intellectual titans of Texas believe.
51% believe that that evolution is a myth, with 38% saying that man was created in his present form by God 10,000 years ago.
58% of likely voters in Texas supported a bill -- now law -- that requires a woman to undergo a sonogram before being granted access to an abortion.
Republicans control every single statewide elected office in Texas, with a 19-12 majority in the state senate, 95-55 majority in the state house along with both of the U.S. Senate seats and 36 of the U.S. House seats.
With that information as a guide to give you an idea how dominant conservative politics are in Texas:
67% of Texas Republicans want to see Barack Obama impeached.
48% of Texas Republicans would like to see the state to secede from the union.
Texans own approximately 51 million guns. More than two for every man, woman and child in the state.
What's say we not defer to the people of Texas on any question more significant than, "Where's the best place to buy a set of Truck Nutz?" eh?
