This is the tale of two Texas men. One of them is a strong and honest man. He is a passionate agent for change and has proven himself to be tireless in his efforts to help Texans achieve a better life.

This man is also running for Governor of Texas. His name is Beto O’Rourke. Beto has launched quite a campaign. It is a campaign that glows like the bluest sapphire as money keeps pouring in, and excited Texans keep helping him get out the vote.

And this Texan is taking his shimmering campaign of hope all over Texas. He is determined to speak to every voter everywhere. He has intelligence, charisma, and determination. Now let’s talk about his competitor.

This is an unscrupulous man. His campaign doesn’t glow, its lights seem to be permanently out when it comes to doing or saying anything meaningful for the great state of Texas. The hapless man is the current Texas Governor — Mr. Greg Abbott.

Abbott finds himself — and his blank canvas of a campaign — adrift. He has not offered much in the way of what he would do to improve the lives of Texans beyond promising to catch every rapist, a patently absurd statement.

Abbott has also taken to doing extremely stupid things like creating the bizarre “parental bill of rights,” hoping to scare parents into voting for him again.

And he is also under fire for sending the National Guard to the border. This was actually covered on MSNBC, and it’s being reported that soldiers are having their whole lives disrupted — for a campaign stunt.

Several National Guard members have died by suicide while stationed there. Folks have deemed Abbott’s border nonsense “political theatre,” and it is estimated this “stunt” will cost taxpayers billions. And let’s not forget the power grid that broke under the non-leadership of Awful Abbott. And it could happen again if the winter in Texas is particularly treacherous.

So now we reach the end of the story. We have two possibilities for Texas. We can elect a courageous man who wants only the best for the state and will work hard to achieve this greatness — or we can elect a moron — an incompetent, unruly moron who doesn’t appear to have a clue on what to do about ANY of the issues in Texas. Let’s make sure we choose wisely.
