    I've been thinking about how people are moving to Texas from failed states (California, Illinois) and bringing that failed state socialist mentality with them.

    Then I got thinking about the legality of states controlling their own borders more.

    This is exactly why the Dems are dumping so much time, money, and effort here. They see a glimpse of hope as our state becomes ever more populated with their constituents.

    Not per se, but they do have the right to tax. I'm sure it would end up at the SC, but what if the State imposed a $1500.00 tax on DL license processing for converting out of state DL's, a $2500.00 tax for registering a vehicle from out of state, etc. etc.
    The Feds have no control over State taxing authority..... and if the State wants to waive the fee for some, well isn't that what Bama is doing with ACA?

    I think that battle has been fought and lost in several of the Texas/Mexico adjoining states for several years now.
