Good for the Texas Democrats—boycotting and denying a quorum for a session of the state legislature that would have voted on the latest restrictive voting regulations. Probably postponing the inevitable, but it’s a visible gesture and great big fuck you to all who obviously aren’t above trying anything that makes it harder for minorities to vote. It’s so blatant, reactive, and un-American. Well, it is American but something many have hoped would have disappeared by now.
Instead of self-evaluation and maybe even evolution, the Republicans are choosing to “stand their ground,” preserve their “principles,” play politics, buy the lie about an election being stolen from their Supreme Leader.
Basically, they’re just trying to hold on to power, however that can be accomplished.
