How fracking is turning Texas Republicans away from the GOP

“I used to be a Republican, but I don’t know what I am now,” Leverett said in Gardendale on Thursday, speaking to a group of reporters attending the Society of Environmental Journalists’ annual conference. “I’m sympathetic toward those who want to preserve a little bit of our world.”

Watch this video of a flare that threatened the residents of Gardenville in October. It’s not the first time this has happened.

Rather than try to operate in a more reasonable, safe and respectful manner, the oil & gas industry tries to demonize people like Leverett. And the Texas GOP can’t hear Leverett because their ears are stuffed too full of oil & gas money.

I too have voted straight ticket Republican for many years, but started splitting up my ticket the last few years. You cna be a fiscal conservative who favors smaller government AND believe in protecting the environment and individual property rights. That’s why I’ll be voting for Wendy Davis in this election.
