Sponsors Of 2012 Texas Democratic Convention—I’m Not So Certain These Companies Will Be Helping With The Needed Work Of Freedom

Here is a picture of the list of sponsors from the just completed Texas Democratic Convention here in Houston.

Make of it what you will.

My view is that our problems of poverty and education and health care in Texas and in our nation are so deep, that they are structural in nature.

I’m not so certain the companies you see listed here are willing to support dramatic change in Texas and the nation.

There were a lot of good activists at the Democratic convention who were not at all tied to the big money. These are people who merit respect and our help.

There is work to be done within the existing political system, and there is work to be done outside of the existing the political system.

We must find the right mix of these two imperatives.

Meanwhile, at the recently completed Texas Republican convention, party leaders were openly booed for not being far enough to the right.

There appear to be no limits to the extremism of Texas Republicans.
