Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up—The Work Of Freedom Is Up To Each Of Us

Here is the weekly round-up of the Texas Progressive Alliance. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas. TPA members are citizen-bloggers who are working hard for a better Texas.

Though given the unusually small number of entries in this most recent round-up, it does seem that some of my fellow bloggers were taking the Fourth of July a bit easy.

Every Texan has the ability has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes, engage in acts of civil disobedience, and even run for public office. The work of freedom is up to each of us.

Off the Kuff took a look at changes in turnout in Congressional districts between 2006 and 2010.

How does “Tommy Lee Jones, United States Senator from Texas” sound? It’s still a possibility, according to the recent news collected by PDiddie atBrains and Eggs.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme is already sick of Rick Perry’s presidential run, what with the propaganda and a**hattery.

Neil at Texas Liberal noted that despite all the talk in Texas about how the federal government is bad, the state of Texas is taking disaster aid from Washington to help manage wildfires and drought.
