Study your history, Texas is the only state in the Union that was a country before joining the United States.

So attempts to take away your first and second amendment rights don't concern you, that's good to know.

Let's see:

Attempts to silence criticism of the Democrats. -- Fairness Doctrine

Attempts to raise taxes on everything.

Attempts to do away with the 2nd Amendment.

Attempts to put the census under direct control of the White House which can be used to manipulate voting representation in the Legislature and the Electoral College.

That's off the top of my head.
