Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Texas GOP is freaking out.

As well they should. Orange County, CA, is their scary example. If you let a bunch of suburbanites into your state, they want liberal stuff like roads and schools and no crazy gun people in the grocery store. Colorado, historically a republican stronghold, has turned solidly blue despite some very conservative enclaves.

Bottom line is that the conservative strategy is self-defeating. If you let a bunch of developers have the freedom to do whatever they want, per libertarian philosophy, they build sprawling housing developments full of middle class voters who vote against conservatives. Oops.
