Texas Wakes Up!

Sadly this is a safe Republican seat so Ms Rogers won't be going to Washington any time soon. Still - memo to David Cameron - this is what you can get when you have real* open primaries. Anyway, we've been rumbled!

The victory in the 22nd Congressional District yesterday by LaRouche Democrat Kesha Rogers sent an unmistakable message to the White House, and its British imperial controllers: Your days are numbered. Kesha's campaign hit relentlessly at a single theme, that President Obama must go, that his attacks on this nation – with his dismantling of the manned space program, his efforts to ram through a fascist, killer “health care” policy, his endless bailouts for Wall Street swindlers, while demanding budget cuts which will increase the death rates among the poor, the sick, the elderly and the unemployed – are not acceptable, and will not be tolerated.

Skeptics said that LaRouche's approach is impractical, it won't work, that Democrats will never support someone who is calling for the President's impeachment. Obviously, the voters of the 22nd district disagreed with those skeptics, as Kesha received 53% of the vote against two opponents. As Kesha told the Galveston Daily News last night, when a reporter asked if she expected support from the Democratic Party in the fall election, “I am leading a war against the British Empire. I'm not worried about what Democratic Party hacks say or do.”

I assume that Obama's "Kenyan birth" is further evidence that he's actually an MI6 mole.

The only other people, I think, who still believe in the Empire are some of the kookier elements within the Iranian regime for whom the United States is always being manipulated by the dastardly Machiavellians at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Clearly, now that Democrats in Texas's 22nd Congressional District have woken up our days are numbered. But, hey, we had a fine run and it was good while it lasted...

*That is, a genuine, open-to-all contest rather than a caucus at which voters can choose between a list of pre-approved candidates. I'm not criticising the way the Tories have handled these things, merely pointing out that calling them "open primaries" is in fact inaccurate.
