Texas Republicans believe in laissez-faire capitalism taken to the extreme. They believe that the rich should be unfettered by taxes and fair labor practices and health and environmental regulations. They believe that women, people of color and people who are gay do not deserve the same sort of legal rights that are enjoyed by straight, white men. They believe that those who are not wealthy are not entitled to an education or food or health care.
Texas Democrats believe in equal rights under the law - between genders, races and people of different abilities and sexual orientations. Texas Democrats believe that education, health care and the needs of basic survival are for everyone, not just the rich. Texas Democrats believe in protecting workers, families and the environment.
