I’ve lived in Texas. While I agree with Rick Perry’s assessement of our nation’s economic disaster, I can’t say I applaud his efforts to create jobs in Texas. If you are under 30 and can work for minimum wage, Texas is the place to be. My husband and I were forced to move to another state to find jobs. The double edged sword of the media is now swinging the other direction. For two years I’ve read about Texas being the hot spot for jobs. As the state’s population escalated from the influx of job seekers, so did the unemployment rate. I would rather have more quality and less quantity.
That being said, I think our politics are about to heat up to an interesting boil. In North Carolina, the majority of recent registered voters as well as those who have re-registered are remaining unaffiliated to a party. Both Democrat and Republican party officials agree that it is a sign the state’s residents are unhappy with the current state of politics.
I’m just happy that both parties could finally agree on something.
