All eyes have been on the terrorist army Islamic State (IS) as it slaughters its way through the Middle East. IS is the most infamous villain on the world stage today, leaving Americans more fearful than ever about an attack on the homeland.

Don't get over confident with a GOP sweep of Texas elections in 2014

Despite General Abbott having an opportunity to embarrassingly whip a Democrat's butt in the General Election, we cannot become complacent about Texas' future as a Red State. Battleground Texas is serious about their goals of turning Texas blue. There has been no secret to Battle Ground Texas' strategy. It is all about the demographics folks.
