Consider this quote, think of other states run by mostly republicans or democrats and describe conditions?
From National Review's John D. Davidson for a book review:
"...there's no dismissing the Lone Star State, no matter what one thinks of it. Five years on from the Great Recession, Texas's low-tax, pro-business [republican] policies have largely shielded its residents and businesses form the economic downturn suffered by the rest of the country. Between 2009 and 2011, whe unemployment was hovering between 9 and 10 percent nationwide, Texas alone created 40 percent of America's new jobs. Last year, it accounted for nearly 9 percent of the country's economy. Millions of people have moved there over the past decade, drawn by the promise of work.
The plain facts of the Texas economy confound liberals [democrats], who have a hard time believing in this so-called Texas Miracle, despite mounting evidence that it is real and durable, taht something fundamental about Texas's approach to economic growth is distinguishing it from, say [democrat controlled] California."10 AnswersPolitics8 years ago
