Browncoat party


Something totally unexpected happened in the presidential race: Romney actually gave me a reason to vote for him. Up to now I'd been expecting to vote for him by process of elimination. Actually taking a stand for the importance of a culture of freedom is something that earns my vote.

In other news, Texas just finished its protracted primaries. I actually voted for some winners this time, most notably Cruz. Which is a shock considering the 0% I racked up two years ago.* The establishment politicians have to be pretty shocked. I suspect they'll react by pulling a Senator Hatch and tacking sharply to the Tea Party side of the issues. Thus keeping the opportunity to stick their hands in the till. We'll see how it works for them.

* I have a guilty feeling that I may have some blame for Victor Carrillo's unexpected loss, though others have blamed it on him being too ill to campaign.
