You Can Register To Vote In Three Languages In Harris County, Texas—What Are Tea Party Folks Going To Do About That?

Here is a picture of a sign I took a few days ago. This sign is at the office of the Harris County, Texas Tax Assessor-Collector & Voter Registrar.

The incumbent holder of this office is appointed Republican Leo Vasquez. Mr. Vasquez lost the Republican primary a few months back.

Mr. Vasquez was not the only Republican in Texas who seems to have lost a primary because a Hispanic last name.

You see that in this Harris County, Texas government office that you can get a voter registration form in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

This is because Harris County is a multi-ethnic place. Just as is Texas and the United States of America.

What are the loudmouth Tea Party folks going to do about these facts?

Nothing. Our county, our state, and our nation are changing.

These so-called Tea Party folks may, or may not, win some elections this year.

But over the long haul, these folks are going to find themselves out in the cold.

This is good part why the Tea Party people are so angry. They know they are fighting a lost cause.

  1. That’s kinda funny for several reasons.

    Leo is a friend of mine, one. I was very sorry to see him lose the primary, as he and I have very similar views on the issues.

    Secondly, I haven’t seen anywhere, but maybe you can find it for me, where our group has advocated English-only balloting. I’m sure some feel this way, but they’re generally more GOP-loyal than tea party people, folks in denial about the demographic realities. You might not realize that the local GOP isn’t so fond of us rabble rousers either.

  2. Felicia–Thanks for the comment. My point was more about demographic realities than a push for English only voting.

    You’ll find that any Republicans you do feel you had a hand in electing this year will leave you folks by the wayside just as office holders often do with members of the electoral base.

    Please visit the blog again.

  3. Oh, agreed.

    I pretty much describe myself as a missionary; one that attempts to end the worship of political figures.

    They hate that so much.
