Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up

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.

Every Texan and every American 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 round-up—

Off the Kuff notes that the Voting Rights Act is squarely in the sight of Texas Republicans as they try to get their gerrymandered maps approved.

As Texas Governor Rick Perry (R – idiculous) officially enters the race for President,Letters From Texas presents Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Perry, But Were Afraid To Ask.

WCNews at Eye On Williamson warns that a Rick Perry presidential run should not be taken lightly, because if elected he would be Bush on Steroids.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme thinks that Rick Perry (r-Dominionist) is just a puppet for the true leaders of the slow moving mob of republican fanatics.

Over at TexasKaos, Libby Shaw gives us a quick summary of Good Hair’s presidential creds in The Success of Rick Perry.

Do the King Street Patriots — via the Texas Secretary of State — intend to turn away veterans at the polls? It looks as if they do, and Open Source Dem at Brains and Eggshas the details.

Neil at Texas Liberal posted on Rick Perry’s conflicted views about gay marriage. If you read pages 26 and 27 of the hardcover edition Rick Perry’s book Fed Up!, you will see that his social conservatism and his extreme states’ rights views are not compatible. Both Rick Perry’s far-right backers and his centrist and liberal opponents should note this dramatic inconsistency.

McBlogger takes a look at S&P and finds them wanting.
