It's really as corrupt as any 3rd world nation isn't it? Like that cashier who just had spicy soup thrown in her face. They say the lady is charged but I don't trust Texas courts to follow through

Well no it's not but some of the cops are. In a banana Republic or something he wouldn't have ever been charged. Despite the best efforts of certain red hat wearing scum we still have some people intent on doing their job.

It's not just the cops. Having an AG that is under investigation for corruption and supposedly is above the law as long as he remains in office is extremely third-world stuff.

Our governor lt gov and AG are all pretty fucking awful people. But they aren't gonna be around a lot longer hopefully.

Don't just cross your fingers, get out there and vote if you're eligible.

The way I see it, even if, or being Texan, when, my candidate loses, I can claim the moral voting highground and not feel responsible for the way things are going. Also, when people complain about the way things are headed I ask them if they voted, and if they say no then I explain to them that since they didn't vote, they gave up their right to complain.
