Wait, what? How can this be?

After a two year hiatus, the Austin Trail of Lights was back this holiday season.

The private sector couldn’t possibly have built that, right Democrats? Except, they did.

Executive Director of the Run Tex Foundation James Russel said they were able to help bring the festival back to Austin because of the private sector.

“We were able to raise the money privately so it’s not costing the taxpayers of Austin anything to produce this event,” said Russel.

Huh. Imagine that.

Take a gander at what the private sector built: Just beautiful.
