The discussion should now be on ideas and strategy, not candidates or personalities.

For the next phase, we should really be talking about what we should do and what we will stand for. The question of who runs should be an afterthought.

3. Folks always want to start talking about...

Who the next presidential candidate is gonna be. I wish they'd wait until after the midterms to even start.

4. It is going to be busy in Texas for the next two years

I am getting my deputy voter registrar status renewed tonight (you have to do this every two years-it is a way for Texas to try to limit voter registrations) and I will get the same certification in another county later (the lady in charge of voter registration in Harris County is a lady who I trained as a poll watcher back in 2012).

Right now I am thinking hard about going down to Corpus to watch the hearing on the Texas voter id case regarding whether the Texas GOP engaged in intentional discrimination in the adoption of the voter id law. The Fifth Circuit gave the court a road map as to how find intentional discrimination and the Obama DOJ wrote an outstanding brief on the issue. http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/electionlaw/litigation/documents/Veasey-USbrief111816.pdf This is what I call fun reading. A Republican judge just ruled that the city of Pasadena violated the Voting Rights Act and bailed that city in under the voting rights act https://electionlawblog.org/?p=90502 This ruling provides another road map for the Corpus judge to bail Texas in on the voter id issues.

Texas is going to have the Governor, Lt. Governor and a Senate seat up and I am busy helping form a new pac for my county democrats. In May the Texas attorney general is going to trial as a defendant in a criminal law case for violation of the securities laws and the SEC is busy suing the Texas AG in a civil case for violation of the securities laws. There is plenty of stuff to do

Turning red states blue and fighting voter suppression efforts are always good ways to get ready for the next cycle

6. I know what the democratic party stands for and I support it 100%.

I don't need any discussion on that.
