Experience shows what the Texas Legislature should fight against

It is almost the year of our Lord two thousand and seventeen and how fast has 2016 flown by?

For Pratt on Texas we celebrated our tenth year on the air back in April. I’ve been on the East Coast, north and south edges of the country as well as in Mexico City in 2016

In the last two years I’ve been in at least twenty of our states and the District of Columbia, and that of course has reaffirmed the superiority of Texas. But, what have I seen of note that relates to Texas politics and decisions legislators will take in the upcoming 85th session of the Texas Legislature?

The most notable has been bums, third-world public and private infrastructure, and the multi-tier society so visible in liberal run parts of the USA. In some of the more valuable property in this country on the Pacific Ocean, amongst family attractions and high-end retailers and restaurants, there are bums occupying almost every few square yards of parks, medians and sidewalks. Often you’ll find them screaming at innocent passers-by and jumping around in manners threatening. California welcomes this and thus they are as thick ants on sugar.

Texas should resist all forms of California-like regulations, even when sold under the silly banner of “local control.”

The same is back in post-businessman-led New York City. Bums are everywhere, living in cardboard boxes on the already crowded sidewalks of Manhattan even in the prime tourist areas. Add to that much of NYC looks like third world cities infrastructure-wise.

These liberal run areas are examples of what not to do in Texas.

Heavy state and local regulation, high taxation, and social welfare schemes that encourage deviant and irresponsible living do nothing but destroy the economic engine of not only business but government too, hence the third world infrastructure. Also quality of life for the productive is severely damaged.

Texas should resist all forms of California-like regulations, even when sold under the silly banner of “local control.”
