OT: why do conservatives love texas?

Post by rnf2 » Fri, 19 Dec 2003 17:48:19


just found this snippet in the monthly cloumn of one of my favourite
authors, and interesting take on why conservitives like texans and why they
want guns freely available.

"It's the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Jack Kennedy. It seems
half the citizens of the USA were born after that tragic event, so to them
it's history. Not to me. I'm an immigrant, naturalized American at age 24
while serving in the US Army. Thus I didn't get to vote in a presidential
election until I was 26, and I voted for Kennedy in 1960. Sure he had his
flaws, but he was an intellectual and ethical giant compared to the current
occupant. He visited Tampa Bay, Florida, and was welcomed. Four days later
he visited Dallas, Texas, and was killed. Conservatives seem to have loved
Texas ever since, and fought to keep guns freely available, maybe so they
can be ready for the next Kennedy."

  Kind of odd since Florida has the same, or even more liberal gun laws than
Texas.

  Or that this fool would imply that Texas wasn't conservative -before-
Kennedy.

  But let's not be too logical...

                                           Popeye
                                             I dive.
                                       Therefore I am.

Rational rather than liberal.

Or somebody who does not know enough about Texas or any of the other U.S.
states to understand.

I thought it seemed a very Rec.Scuban approach to politics.

Well, if it'll keep yet another Democratic President out of Texas, I'm
willing to let him have the benefit of the doubt... <grin>
