This may be the most important person in America for the next 23.5 years.

Jeremy, The Field General, led Obama’s ground game for the 2012 election.  Winning an election is no so much about having the right ideas anymore, it’s about targeting the right potential voters.  Jeremy gets that and he got the White House.

His next target is Texas.

If Jeremy can get Texas to flip to Democratic by registering and motivating Hispanics then it’s game over for the Republicans.  And, not just for Hillary’s election but it’s game over until the Republicans DRASTICALLY adjust their approach to how they treat humans… which could take 6 election cycles.

There is a percentage of humans who are wired paternalistically and who are driven by “beliefism”.. which says that they will support strength regardless of facts or reality.  Those who are paternalistic and driven by beliefism also tend to “stick to their own” to the degree that they are willing or eager to discriminate against the “other”.  “Other” in their world tends to be anyone who is not a white, older, male, who acts like a badass ..and is uneducated.  The South, right?  Those people WILL NOT change.. it’s the same people who are still upset about the civil war.. and that was over 3 or 4 yrs ago I think ;).

So, if Texas and it’s large electoral basket flips to be Democratic the Republicans CAN NOT win national elections.. as long at the good ole boy driven electorate is alive.

It feels like a long shot to flip Texas by 2016.. BUT, it looks more and more feasible every time the Republicans bash Hispanics and women ..and every time they try to install laws to negate the minority/inner city vote.. and every time they let the Tea Party haters decide what laws get passed or not passed… and every time they say “no” to what they said “yes” to when it was their idea.. I’m not counting out the greed and lack of vision the Republicans have.. it’s looking like they will just keep alienating everyone but old, white, dumb guys.. and that will soon be a minority.. SURPRISE!!
