Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 367 -- Texas & Republican Leadership.
A Winning Combination-
The Texas economy continues to outpace the national economy (which is none too shabby, by the way).
Job growth has been stronger in Texas than in the overall national economy:
Texas is now the number one exporting state in the nation:
Meanwhile, Texas still has no income tax, we're finally seeing some property tax relief, home ownership is roaring, and we have a record budget surplus. Related to that surplus, our Governor is the second best in the country, fiscally-speaking. Texas has the 6th best overall tax climate for business in the country, but if we can achieve permanent property tax relief in Texas, that ranking could easily move to #1.
On top of that, Texas is now the leading producer of wind energy in the country, we've seen massive tort reform, massive deregulation of various industry giants, and Governor Perry is working to devote at least 65 cents of every education dollar to the actual classroom, something that education reform activists in many states around the country are working on (and "movement conservatives" can only dream about in most states).
Bottom line: if you're in Texas and you're voting to keep the reform train chugging along, and the economy strong, you're voting Republican.

I just find it incredible that Texas is the number one exporting state - would've thought it was California, easy.
Must be that long border with Mexico.

Voted straight ticket Republican. Somehow there wasn't one, not one, Democrat that made me pause. Imagine that.
