As the saying goes, you can’t keep a good guy or gal down. When the Republican Party of Texas denied a booth to the Log Cabin Republicans, they didn’t fold their cards and go home. Thankfully. From the Log Cabin Republicans of Houston Facebook page:
A call to Members, Friends and Allies – Exciting things are happening as we make preparations for our participation at the 2018 Texas GOP State Convention that will be held June 11-16, 2018 in San Antonio, TX. We may not have an exhibition booth, but we will have scheduled events at the convention, including a Meet & Greet during the convention, and a post-gala event with spectacular views that will be open to all our friends and allies. Hold the date as our post-gala soiree will be held Friday night, June 15, 2018 (more information to follow as we get closer to the date). Thank you to our members, friends and allies that have given generously to our fundraising efforts for these events. We still need your financial support and we are asking our members, friends and families to support us with a contribution of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100 or more to help us achieve our goals at the State Convention. We can’t do this without your generous support. Please click on the link to make your contribution, and note “state convention.” Thank you! https://lcrhouston.nationbuilder.com/donation
This group of Republicans has incredible intestinal fortitude. They are repeatedly insulted and mocked by “Christian” Republicans and yet they continue to push the conservative agenda of lower taxes, smaller government and increased freedom. And yes, equality under the law for all citizens. My admiration for the members grows daily.
If you think that Republicans can exist by shrinking the number of people that are admitted to “our” party, think again. Derek Ryan sent out a final primary voter analysis and it is startling. Click here to view his entire report but I’m going to focus on this chart:
Republicans must pay attention to the changing demographics of Texas voters. The age differences of voters in the Republican primary versus the general election is alarming. I don’t think it will affect this year’s election statewide but goodness, those of us in urban areas are in for a rude awakening if we don’t address this.
One thing that you can do to help is to help the Log Cabin Republicans with the cost of their presence at the convention. I would never ask you to do something I wouldn’t do, so if you click on the donate link, you’ll see my name. For you it might be about keeping Republicans in power. For me, it is about doing the right thing, which didn’t happen at the State Republican Executive Committee meeting. Whatever your reason, please consider donating to the LCR.
