I am shamelessly stealing this from Shakesville. The Texas Republicans have been redistricting in an effort to disenfranchise key Democratic constituencies. So what did the students of Prairie View A&M do when their local polling station was placed 7 miles from the school? They marched to the polling place and brought a highway to a standstill. I will repeat that, they fucking marched down the middle of a fucking highway and stopped traffic. They were doing their civic duty and voting and when people tried to screw them out of this, they said fuck you and took over a local highway. And the Republicans are scared that the Democrats might win this election, I say "hell yeah they will win." And people say that this generation is lazy and apathetic toward politics, I say "do people who are apathetic march seven miles to vote? Hell no." So fuck you Texas Republicans!
