Austin, TX, located in Travis County Texas, has never voted for Rick Perry for Governor.

Austin is, at least in Texas standards, notoriously liberal. it is also home to people that are better educated than average Texans. And it is, like he said, a center for new business. Is there a correlation?

Another fact of note, Texans didn’t “build this place”. Austin was famously home to a government sponsored high technology consortium called “SEMATECH” started in 1986.

My thought on reading the headline was, “Texas is one of the few places where its leader is crazier and more ignorant than Kim Jong Un, and Kim hates competition.”

re: #1 Haywood Jabloeme

Look at the map in your link, and see the results for Perry in 2010.

Notice that “Hole” in the Western part of Texas? Just south of the Panhandle? Wonder what is going on politically there.

All the Blue Spots in Texas can be explained by one of three things:

1) Big Cities where minorities outnumber caucasians and vote Democratic
2) South, close to the border, where Hispanics outnumber Whites and also vote Democratic. Which will, by-the-way, turn Texas completely Blue in ~ 10 years and and will look politically like CA does now and will mean that there will not be another Republican for … . . ever.
3) Austin, where many more non-original Texans live due to the influx of people with educations are needed to actually work in the companies that aren’t either Walmarts or prisons.

LOLOL….you hit the nail right on the head ! That’s it !In addition to singling out Texas on account of Perry living there . Not to mention any missle that N.Koreans fire at the US are more likely to hit China by mistake .
Be afraid China , be very afraid !
