Texas Farm Bureau—Texas Progressive Alliance Blog Round-Up

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

The work of democracy and freedom is up to each of us.
