Since this thread was hijacked long ago, my .02:

I think "adult rights" should be awarded only after someone has served honorably in the armed forces. Service has an tendency to change one's point of view. But the government shouldn't be allowed to rush willy-nilly into any old conflict.
Do "adult rights" include the obligation to pay taxes, or are you arguing in favor of taxation without representation?

Republicans in Texas better wake up and figure out how to get Hispanic votes and suburban votes. In my area which historically has been strongly Republican, I now have a Democrat state senator and a Democrat state rep who doesn't even live in the district. And my Congressman, Marchant, just barely won.

Republicans need to wake up!
Maybe we need a waiting period, say 5 years, before an immigrant to Texas can vote in State or Local elections?

10 years for transplants from CA, NY, NJ or WA. :mrgreen:

Kidding, of course. Kinda.
Hey! 10 year waiting period?? Well, I won't be lying if I said that I'd be willing to give up my votes if each of my concessions means two or more fewer Democratic votes.
Those of us in Galveston County are thinking the same thing. But our fear isn't about the Californians, but rather the ignorant hoards streaming from Harris county. Something happened there. I am not sure what, but a sudden wave of stupidity suddenly took over. Has anyone checked out the water supply? Where is it commong from? Flint MI.?
Free stuff is a powerful motivator, and goes to show that even among alleged conservatives, there are those who can be bought. Add that to the blue immigration wave from other states, and the stupid is getting stronger. With every election, my urge to get away from big cities and off the grid in a rural setting gets stronger.
Not only Yankee and Left Coast states, but from other countries too. They're accustomed to socialist hand outs and safety nets, and they want the same things in America. It's maddening they come here for more opportunity and then demand political and social policies that limit opportunity and only work to drag down other people to their lowest common denominator. I'm afraid we reached the tipping point where there's no turning back without a revolution. Maybe not a civil war. Hopefully not a civil war! But the economic decline is irreversible without something happening rivaling the industrial revolution or some Act of God.
