I liked it till I read the ending. This is simply a resolution. It has no bite or what Texas will do if these issues are not addressed. It also doesn't state what federal legislation has caused the state such problems. They can pass it in a NY minute and send it to Washington to be filed in file 13 because that is where it will end up. As a fellow Texan I am really disappointed that there were no threats if these issues were not revolved.
What Texas needs to do is make a list of every one of those issues where the FEDS have overstepped and sue them in court over each one under the 10th Amendment.

Quite frankly I'm surprised Texas wasn't the state that started all of this! I remember visting Austin once and seeing the capital building. I read what is on the statue in front there and was a bit shocked to say the least. So, that is why I say I am surprised.

I am sure the good old boys are in a big hurry to get their death chambers up and running again in old Tx. With their horrible civil rights, and the abuse of their prison population they don't belong with the rest of the civilized states anyway!!!!
The time for Texas to have made a stand passed by and it's too late to ball up now. Texas has, has had and will always have nothing but Steers and Queers.
I love this country. I served this great nation for 4 years 2 of which I spent in Desert Storm/Desert Shield.
