Texas Republicans like to say that they represent the heart and soul of the state. Well, not quite.
This is a very wrong way to view the relationship between the state and its party. The relationship between the state and its parties is not based on how “good” they are at what they do, but rather on how well they can coordinate their efforts with each other. This is not to say that every Republican in Texas is stupid or a fool. It simply means that their party should be judged by the degree to which it can properly coordinate its efforts with the state.
In the event that there are a number of Republican officials in Texas, a party that does not really want to coordinate is sure to fail. In order to achieve any long-term success, Republican officials in Texas need to work as one team. Every person in the Republican party needs to understand that political victories are the result of more than one individual working in unison.
There is a saying that goes “the only thing worse than two Republicans is one Republican and himself.” Although this is often true, the competition between two Texas Republicans is not something that cannot be worked out. It is possible to get along with each other.
The first thing that should be known is that most state-level political organizations tend to lack real organizational cohesion. The second thing that is necessary is that most of these states are not particularly large, geographically speaking. Together, the two Texas Republicans will likely be able to get very far in an effort that spans the entire state.
This will lead to Republican voters in Texas either electing a single Republican and himself, or electing multiple Republicans who do not stand together in any way. This leaves a lot of political opportunities open for the Democrats, in particular.
The reason that the two Texas Republicans will likely end up voting with the Democratic party if they are elected is that they want to make it seem like they are both Republican. Since the system is that the majority of Republicans in Texas are actually Democrat, it makes sense that they will vote with the Democrats in an effort to appear that they are both Republican. They will definitely try to play the both roles, but the voters will be suspicious.
Once the two Texas Republicans begins to align themselves with the Democratic party, they will find that it is easier to draw a united front in the Republican party. Once they start drawing the other Republicans in a similar direction, the question becomes how to then draw them in a different direction. Once all of the Republicans in Texas to realize that they can now get along with the other Republicans, they will be greatly affected.
In the long run, the very act of making everyone agree with the political objectives of the Republican party will prevent the eventual fracturing of the Republican party. Just because two different people in two different places do not have the same political goals, it does not mean that they cannot cooperate in order to get there. By joining forces, they will be able to make more effective use of their political influence.
In a small enough state such as Texas, it is highly unlikely that the Republican party will ever grow much larger than three hundred or so Republicans. In order to grow their political influence in the state, the state Republicans must find ways to coordinate their efforts with other Republicans. In order to maintain control of the state, they must do this all the time.
In the case of Texas, the party is already too big to allow for unified leadership, but they have the luxury of party unity. Once a great many more Republicans join in with the Democrats, it is going to become too difficult to work with just one Republican. These efforts must happen on a constant basis to keep the Republican party united and prevent the division from forming.
Not only are Republicans in Texas right to strive to work as one team, but they should always remember that their party has to do this for the benefit of the state and it is only when the two sides come together that the political victory will truly be an overwhelming victory. victory.
