A Government of the People, by the People, for the People

Last night, something truly amazing happened. It made me proud to be a woman, to be an American, to be a Democrat, and to be a Texan.

And as we are set to embark on two-week voyage to the heart of American liberty and democracy with the children, this couldn't have come at a better time. All the history books we've been reading and all the movies we've been watching, and right here in Austin, we get the best demonstration of democracy in action. Ever.

As Abraham Lincoln said in his Gettysburg address, we are truly a government of the people, by the people, for the people, and we shall not perish from this earth. No matter how hard and illegal the Republicans play, the people have spoken, and we will continue to speak. You can call us an angry mob if it makes you feel better, David Dewhurst. I'm proud to be a member of this group of people. And MY mob didn't violate the Texas Constitution with its illegal votes and unconstitutional shutting down of dissenting female senators speaking. Nor did we spend three hours trying to change the clock.

Thank you, Sen. Wendy Davis. You are a true Superhero.


  1. I could not agree more. She stood up and spoke for all women, in the most literal sense. She took a huge one for the team, and, hopefully, got the attention of the electorate, who need to really look at who their leaders are, and whether they speak for them.

    I am PROUD to be an American today. I am proud that my daughter (courtesy of the US Army) is a born Texan. Things are going to get better. I can feel it.

  2. I love you for stating this better than I can. I was there and so happy we can now vote for her for governor! Yea!!!
