    Well he sounds good but as the only human in the Senate will he be able to do much?

  2. throwaway, butcher of tongues, mauler of metaphor says

    I’d vote for him as well.

    While I’ll take allies where I can get them, I just wish there wasn’t all this religious blather going on at these rallies. It feels so alienating.

    @ 4 throwaway
    all this religious blather

    I live in Canada and it sounded “really” weird to me. I cannot really imagine some huge demo stopping for prayers in Ottawa or Toronto or Victoria.

    And how many religions would we have to accommodate? Still, it would be time to grab a beer and a hot dog.

    I’d vote for him too. At least at the moment, I have two US sentators, my US Congresscritter, my state senator, and my state rep as all democrats.
    Is there some sort of fund raiser? I might have some small change to spare.

  5. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    As much as I would love for him to win, I don’t hold out much hope cause Texas.

    Nor do I for the next election, but without wide-spread and continued voter suppression, the state will eventually flip. Too many non-white surnames on the voter roles…gotta start somewhere.

    Yeah, I still can’t get over the fact that “God bless Canada” has become the way both Tories and Liberals end their speeches since Harper. It’s awkward as hell and alienating, too.

    Here in Texas, just one. And you have time to get a four corse meal with coffee after.

    True and thus, “the Wall” and cracking down on “bad hombres”. *rolls eyes*

    AronRa has been off my radar for a long time, can I assume by your endorsement that he hasn’t turned into a shitlord like many of the YouTube atheists I used to watch? That kinda heartening. Might have to contribute.

    Sadly, it’s not enough to live in Texas–you need to live in State Senate District 2, where he’s running, east/northeast of Dallas.

    Pretty solidly Republican area, so I don’t have high hopes for his chances. But at least the State Senate districts aren’t gerrymandered all to hell and back, so it ain’t an impossible dream.

    Whaddya know? Dude cleans up right well! He’s lookin’ positively *respectable*! ;-)

    I don’t think so–it looks like Collin County is in district 30 and district 8. Plano appears to be in district 30.
    Even Richardson appears to be outside the bounds, although the map I have isn’t high enough resolution to say for sure, it seems that’s district 8 as well.
    District 2 consists of the counties of Kaufman, Rockwall, Van Zandt, and a few more farther northeast, and just a bit of Dallas County–looks to me like just Garland, Mesquite, Balch Springs, Seagoville, and some smaller municipalities right around there.
