In Texas you have an example of what happens when a state is ruled by those who initially don't believe in a government. You have had absolute control of the statehouse, the lieutenant governor and the governor for 20 years. The decision to liberalize ERCOT and ensure that it is not connected to the national grid and not to overwinter the coal, gas, nuclear, solar or the transmission lines that bring this energy to us, the inability to ensure That there is overcapacity for emergencies like this. To power our homes and businesses, these are all decisions they made.

And now, of course, they're pointing the finger at Congressman Ocasio-Cortez, the Green New Deal. Anyone and anything but yourself that doesn't inspire confidence that we will break away from it or learn from our mistakes. We had a horrific winter storm in 2011 that caused similar blackouts across Texas.

Ten years later you would have thought that with many of the same rulers we would have learned from this mistake, invested in our infrastructure and brought our Texans to safety. That's not what's happening in the state right now. Many are on their own.

Beto O’Rourke is right. The Texas crisis was caused by a fundamental failure of the republican ideology implemented in Texas. Even limited government conservatives used to believe that the main job of government was to keep people safe. The government is supposed to respond to natural disasters. That is why citizens pay taxes so that they are there for them when they need government.

Death and misery in Texas have a cause. The Republican Party in the State. Millions of Texans suffer and die while Ted Cruz goes on vacation to the beach.

Donald Trump is gone, but Texas is an example of Republicans' willingness to kill and harm for ideological beliefs.
