How Texas Goes, So Goes America

Lawrence Wright, journalist for the New Yorker, has a piece called “America’s Future Is Texas”, in which he suggests that the current battle between the big progressive cities like Austin and Houston and San Antonio v. the antiquated, throwback rural and suburban areas who rally around God and Guns and against Gays, Girls, Taxes and Non-Whites is the future of America.

God help us. I think we’re in for a period of prolonged instability as this battle plays itself out in states across the country.
