AUSTN- As we celebrate "Come and Take It" day, let's ask ourselves just what is it that we are challenging our oppressive government to try to take away?
The Texas Libertarian Party has long said that Washington, D.C. is broken. The corrupt two party system - mired in the ways of Washington -- is also broken. Now, we have proof that Austin is or soon will be broken.
Republicans admit that Texas pension liabilities are 53% unfunded (New York is "only" 40% unfunded). http://www.jec.senate.gov/republicans/public/index.cfm?p=Studies&ContentRecord_id=9d6563d0-d1f9-4521-b170-b9e324ebfc9e . There is talk of a federal bailout of state pension funds.
Enough with this debt! Stop the bailouts!
Will Texans be humiliated by being bailed out by New York ? Is our huge, self-imposed debt what we want Washington to take from us?
Many of our problems are "Made in Washington." This one, however, is "Made in Austin" and by the supposedly fiscally responsible Republicans.
Check out your Texas Libertarian candidates for this November's election. If you want fiscal sanity, the Texas Libertarian Party is not just another choice for Texas voters, we're your only choice.
