Texas Is Part Of The Federal Union—Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up

Here is the weekly posting of the Texas Progressive Alliance round-up. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas.

I’m writing this on the morning of the Fourth of July. It seems possible that bloggers such as TPA members would have spread word of the Declaration of Independence had we been around at the time.

Above is a copy of the Declaration. Here is a link to the text.

The right in Texas mumbles about secession on one hand, and then appropriates the symbols of our national unity on the other hand by going on about tea parties. They seem to be out of their minds with contradiction, misinformation and anger. Folks must not forget that Texas is part of the federal union and people in Texas collect social security, go the VA hospitals, are employed by the federal government, and make use of national parks.

Please have a nice holiday.
