Make a plan to vote in the Texas primary elections

“One minute they seem like normal human beings, the next they’ve grown horns.”

—from Eugène Ionesco’s “Rhinoceros” (1959), a play about the rise of fascism

After more than three years of watching our elected representatives prostrate themselves to Donald Trump, we are unsurprised at their embarrassing behavior during the impeachment proceedings and Senate trial. John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, Michael McCaul, Bill Flores, Chip Roy, Roger Williams, John Carter—all are irredeemable cowards. Our best shot at saving Democracy is to vote them out of office.
