I live just outside of Austin, TX (45 minutes from downtown) but there is no escape from Beto car stickers, yard signs and commercials. They
out-numbered Cruz advertisements 20-1 if I had to estimate it myself. There’s good reason for that, because Beto ran a $70 million Senate race
campaign – (that’s a record) - ….and lost!
Now, Austin is what I call Lil’ Cali because Californians have been flocking here for years and years, bringing their ideals (& traffic) with them.
Austin is a Freedom City
… also known as a sanctuary city. Hey, if you
can’t change the definition of the word, change the word to fit your
definition. To its credit, Austin has essentially always bucked
traditional Texan values and been a liberal beacon of sorts. At this point though, the city itself is over-crowded and over-priced, at least for
myself (unrecognizable). We have many well-known celebrities that live here – add the likes of being known as the “Live Music Capital of the
World” & always on the top-10 list of best cities to live, as well as a hub for the film and tech industries, and you have yourself the Hollywood of
the South -- unfortunately.
So Beto lost the senate race to Cruz but as things unfolded yesterday/on election night… the story began to shift. Instead of Beto being the first
Democrat to win the seat since 1994, his very early lead began to vanish and suddenly the narrative became,
"Even if Beto loses, he still wins"
Now in that very article, Beto is confirmed to dismiss any talk about a future White House run. But he has become the darling of the media, in
addition to some major stars.
e, Lebron James, Jim Carrey, Ellen, etc.
. What do these people have to do with the Texas senate race??!!??! (well, Beyonce is from Houston)
I’m not sure if these people are aware of Beto’s politics, simply like that he defended the NFL players kneeling, or what, but Beto received
campaign donations from all over the country. It’s a weird phenomenon and I believe it has to do specifically with Texas, mainly the
gun-culture/support we have here. I believe the liberals think that if they can make headway with gun legislation in Texas, where CAN’T they push &
implement their gun agenda. And of course, if they can tread all over the 2nd amendment rights here, what a win it would be for globalists as well
and a huge step forward for their agenda.
I don’t think this ginormous push for Beto right now is a coincidence. And just so I’m clear, this wasn’t simply a push against Cruz for
Senate. All over social media, the same narrative about “Even though Beto lost, he still won” is consistent, and there is a major push for a Beto
2020 presidential run.
Beto was born and raised in El Paso.
He supports a ban on assault rifles.
I think if the left can find a Texas-born&bred, Columbia-graduate Democrat that 1) supports gun-legislation, assault-rifle ban and universal
background checks; as well as 2) supporting the DREAM Act – that would be their unicorn. I think those are the two biggest issues in today’s
nation/politics, but more importantly, the two biggest issue to the elite with regards to what they need overturned in order to squash the grand
experiment that is America.
This isn’t to say Beto doesn’t have some good ideas and support some policies that I agree with; like term limits for representatives, ending the
federal prohibition on marijuana & truly assisting with our veterans.
I’m just saying I think it’s rather convenient this guy is the new Obama and somehow major cultural “stars” are endorsing him for a 2020
presidential run that Beto himself said he wasn’t interested in. I think this phenomenon isn’t about Beto the man of the left, but Beto ‘the
potential tool’ of the elite left/progressives/globalists.
I know there are several other Texan-ATSers, and would love to hear your thoughts on this conspiracy
... as well as the rest of y'all!
