Just when you think Texas has gone far enough to the right to tip right off the continental shelf you wind up with scary-crazies like Debra Medina running for office.
-She thinks there should be no gun laws, and "lamented in a recent debate that current law did not allow her to take her pistol, which she keeps in a zippered case in her car, into the grocery store."
-She wants to deploy the Texas National Guard along the border.
-She believes that federal agencies, such as the E.P.A. should have no jurisdiction within the states and if elected she would "tell the E.P.A., ‘You have no authority here."
-Property taxes would go and the government would fund itself only on a 15% sales tax.
Texas has been and continues to be the biggest joke in the nation. The un-funny part is how big-business has leveraged these politicians into a back-door access to the highest reaches of power. Sadder still is that voters are easily attracted by the ooo-shiny factor, not realizing that the bright lights and glossy images they see are being brought to them by the same corporations that want to ensure that government for the people only benefits them.
