I agree with Governor Perry in support of the 10th Amendment. Because Texas was once an independent nation, state pride and independence run deeper than any other state in the Union. We have always been leery of federal mandates that cost taxpayers money, do little good and take away personal liberties. Our forefathers knew what they were doing when they granted each state individual rights and as Texans, and Americans, it is important that we dont allow the federal government to run rough-shot over those rights and above all we need to let Texans take care of Texas. After all, we are the Lone Star State.
