a tiny glimpse of Texican reality
by Peter Stern
Governor Rick Perry will win again simply because Texans bought into a vision that isn't really there. Say what you will about Perry, but the man knows how Texans think. Look at the documented history during Perry's 3 terms as Governor and you will see the reality that is hidden from public view: the special interest driven Perry who is adept at using smoke screens and mirrors to perform his magic.
Texas is stuck in a carefully constructed veiled perspective of daily life and irresponsible politics that will remain in the darkened shadows for at least another 4 years, perhaps forever. To see clearly you must want to see what is in front of your eyes.
Texans will be driving a long toll road to reignite their freedom. It is going to be a long, bumpy and expensive ride.
