Texas will be a blue state within 2-3 election cycles.
The illusion is thinking Republicans share your values of individualism/freedom, but they don't. Reps are the Dems of like 15 years ago. It's been a slow drift left to where Dems are socialists and Reps are dems. So even if Texas stays Republican, it probably won't be your version of republican more like the new dems.If that all makes sense....
