Francis needs to go back to New York, where his leftist ways are accepted.
What are your "ways"? Deliberately block the most residents, per capita, of any state from access to affordable healthcare during a pandemic?
Pass an array of laws to discourage and impede the right to vote and if that doesn't work, overturn election results by unilateral, partisan
interference?
Lie to the press and public about the circumstances related to the shooting deaths of 19 innocent school children and then spend taxpayer
funds to attempt to block the right of the press and public to learn any details, when the only active criminal investigation should be about
the official protection of the incompetent? No one fired, despite the governor complaining the department heads sitting next to him, several
days running, misled him repeatedly, as well as the press?

The city of Uvalde hires law firm to block release of documents related ...

Jun 17, 2022 "The city of Uvalde has contracted a private Texas law firm to argue that it should be exempt from releasing public records related to the Robb Elementary School mass shooting, according to a letter obtained by Vice.. Why it matters: The Uvalde police department has faced fierce backlash for its failures in responding to the shooting, which killed 21 people, including 19 children."

Vote to keep election fraud disinfo assholes, Paxton and Patrick in office? Patrick, who advocated to exposed older, more at risk residents to
covid-19 so everyone's younger family members could make a buck?
Cynically "siccing" every vulture in the U.S. on the poorest pregnant women in Texas, seeking abortion without the means to escape
the jurisdiction?
And you post as an advocate for that status quo? Maybe New York values would be a dramatic improvement in a state in which attorney
general Paxton announces he is closing his office Friday to celebrate trapping the poorest, most desperate, and only those women seeking
safe, clinical abortion services from escaping the clutches of these "good christians".

Or else what?

Or else nothing; he would probably jest be more comfortably among people who share his view (whatever they might be from moment to moment).

Given how the USA is being taken back to the dark ages by the rise of Trumpism, if you were a young adult ready to start a life, would you look to leave for a more enlightened country?
Do you want your kids and grand kids brought up like it was 1880?
Guns on subway cars, gays hunted and beaten, every bar fight ending in a shootout, housewives kept in their place...
We all know the Trumpian template.
We just don't want you killing unborn children legally.

And the Dark Ages look more like this:

Item: during the pandemic Texas offered free testing and immunizations just, just like the rest of the country.
Item: Requiring proper identification, or forms to be filled out properly has no detrimental effect on voting right e.g. Georgia. It only serves to ensure that only
valid votes are cast and counted.
Item: the police chief in Uvalde is under suspension while the investigation you say isn't happening is ongoing.
Item: Law enforcement personnel are suspended during such investigations, even though it's almost certain they will be found negligent and fired they are entitled to due process just like everyone else.
Item: The press has never been entitled to the details of an ongoing investigation.

Finally, nothing you have said or posted reflects on Orouke's political positions in contrast to the majority of the state of Texas.

The federal government paid for all Covid-19 vaccine related response, and offered to cover the full costs of 2021 and 2022
medicaid expansion, 90 percent thereafter, and Texas state government turned that down, opting instead to have the most
people in any state to be denied access to affordable healthcare.



Texas' Uninsured Problem Is About to Get Worse

The end of the public health emergency could spell trouble for those who have qualified for Medicaid coverage during the pandemic.

Uvalde officials are using a legal loophole to block the release of shooting records

NPR|9 days ago
After 19 children were killed at a Texas elementary, law enforcement officials have given little information. They're now using the "dead suspect loophole" to prevent the public release of records.

Greg Abbott's handwritten notes raise fresh questions over who 'misled' him about Uvalde shooting response

San Antonio Current|13 days ago
The nine pages of blue ink on white lined paper show how the governor prepared his remarks for a news conference May 25, the day after the shooting — presumably based on information being given to him.

Once again you have talked about everything and anything but Orourke's policies; that's not very surprising seeing as they are out of step with the greater majority of Texans.
