Hello Jerry!

As you are no doubt aware,I receive MCN any where from a few days to two weeks after the publication date. Nevertheless I treasure this,my connection to the Place I Love Best.I recently(!) received the Feb 8 issue containing the well-thought out letter putting forth the many benefits Texas receives from the Federal Gov’t

It is just those benefits that the general population has been so lulled and regulated by that is the heart of the argument of those who suggest Texas might benefit by looking into other ways and means for our well-being. I needn’t go into all the various arguments on both sides for a lot of them are motivated by emotionalism/’romanticism.

Recently ,however the general financial picture not only for the US but the world in general has been brought sharply into view. Even the most hardcore proponents of all-pervading government must admit the precarious nature of entitlment programs now in force and the cloudy prospects for their continuance as now formulated.

With this in mind and hoping to avoid financial difficulty should Washington find itself unable to send us all those billions we have come to rely on ,Rep James White of East Texas (ahem) with others are planning to submit a bill entitled the Texas Self-sufficiency Act. It is intended to provide for a study to explore ways and means for Texas to become financially able to pay its own way. There are many benefits to be realized from remaining part of the United States . And while our Fore Fathers chose to suffer the hardships of independence from a central govering body and depend on God and themselves, few of us today are so consitituted. More’s the pity....

I would encourage any of your readers who might be interested in supporting House Bill #568,the Texas Self Sufficiency Act, to contact their state representative/senator to support this bill.Or they may contact Rep. James White’s office at 512-463-0490 for more information.
