Rep. Charlie Howard of Sugarland Is Named Most Flamingly Red Member of the Texas House

In Texas's political constellation, Rep. Charlie Howard is our guiding red giant.
Out of all the politicos in all the towns in all of Texas, Sugar Land's very own Rep. Charlie Howard has been recognized as the most conservative member of the Texas House. Ultimate Fort Bend reported the news after Rice University's James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy released its study, in which it plotted each member's voting record along a blue to red spectrum.

And Representative Charlie Howard is the most flamingly far to the right.

Hot Tamale Howard was thrilled at the news, reported Ultimate Fort Bend. Said Howard to the paper:

First of all, Texas is the most conservative state in the Union, and Fort Bend County is one of the most conservative counties in the state...Therefore, I think I am doing an extremely good job of representing my district and my county.

The study reveals that virtually no voting takes place in the middle. The vast majority of House members stay safely on either side of the party fault line. But while Howard embraces the study's conclusion that he is the Red King, he chooses to deny its finding that most members unswervingly vote by color. "I would say there are members that have that difficulty but I don't feel like I'm one of those members," he told the paper.

Howard has been a mainstay in Texas Monthly's annual rankings of Worst Legislators, appearing in the top ten worst in 2007, 1999 and 1997. Rice's study is just one more notch in his red belt. Said Howard to Ultimate Fort Bend, "I've been up here 16 years... I think you're gonna find that my voting record reflects my conservatism for that whole period."

Charlie, Charlie, grow uo. Texas is changing and the pendulum is swinging away from the "good old boy" network that relies on on mistatements, misinformation, and good old lies to get into office and stay there. The new electorate is going to be looking for real results (other than just seeing their elected officials fatten at the public trough). They are very likely to drag Texas (like it or not), out of the 19th century and into the 21st. Adopt to a smaller planet or go the way of the dinasaurs.

Howard is a big-government statist. After all, it's not welfare if it benefits big business and protectionist policies that adversely affect the consumer. If it wasn't for farmers' interests, we could be using sugar ethanol that is much more efficient than corn ethanol.

But probably when it comes to subsidies for sugar farmers, Rep. Howard is a big-government statist. After all, it's not welfare if it benefits big business and protectionist policies that adversely affect the consumer. If it wasn't for farmers' interests, we could be using sugar ethanol that is much more efficient than corn ethanol. But hey, we have to support our dictator friends in the House of al-Saud that helped sponsor the biggest peacetime attack on our country.

Texas sure is changing! You may not have heard about the last election but there the Legislature is now more than 2 - 1 GOP. Hope and change!

I'm not sure where your dinosaur comment comes from but maybe to you dinosaur states create more jobs than the rest of the nation combined. That's red Texas for you!
