To The Editor:
I love the state of Texas with its variety of animals, plants, and geography. I love most of the people I have met here, too. They have been kinder, more generous, and more tolerant than they are often portrayed in the media and on the Internet. It is Texas politics and some of its politicians that make me crazy.
Too many of the (mostly) powerful men here seem so disconnected from the people I have met. I wonder: how did they get elected? Then I remember that Texas is dead last in voter registration and voter turnout. Only a minority vote, and most of that minority are the powerful and well-off who are voting for their interests and the interests of their friends.
So there is a correction Texans can make. We can vote for those who are kind, tolerant, and generous no matter what approach they possess.
The key word is VOTE. Vote for the Texas you want and for the people you are.
