LatinoTalk Texas is America's only independent political analysis daily talk show presented in English for all to hear.  Today, George Rice, a political activist from the Rio Grande Valley called to discuss the political happenings in that politically interesting place of Texas.  Initially, George complained that young Democrats had called a "Meet the Candidate" function but "stacked the deck" and only invited one Republican candidate and when confronted lied about inviting others.  I reported that is the nature of politics and it is not fair but that it is independents like myself who can see the unfairness each or all poltical parties are routinely involved with.  We continued our discussion of the unique political dynamics in south Texas that involve Latino voters.  They consistenty vote Democrat but remain conservative and a recent Latino Pro-Life Democrat candidate for Texas Governor beat out Hard line pro-abortion Democrat Wendy Davis for the votes in those south Texas counties.  Now, Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott running for Governor is trying to win those same votes.  Furthermore, and I've discussed this on my show many times, is the fact that Abbott seeks these votes but is himself anti-Latino and supported past anti-Latino measures like SB 1070 and will also support other anti-Latino measures.  George and I discuss also and he and I both lament the crypto-libertarian movement into the GOP and how it has driven leaders like George and myself out of the GOP although George remains a member his group was destroyed.
