Too many socialist/marxists here now and I am just glad I live in TX.
    Didn't Rick Perry once talk of secession?

    That issue should be raised again. It seems that only greater state rights can keep the country together.

    That was overblown and not serious. States rights is an issue though and the state of TX is doing great. Love living here, part time legislature, no state income taxes, conservative values, and personal responsibility respected.

    People can believe whatever they want but when their own money is on the line they can do a 180 rather quickly. Iīm looking forward to America making a comeback to the point where reality trumps ideology. I certainly hope itīs not too late as Americans have always been great friends and neighbors.
    I've read a lot of crazy **** on these fora (especially by Birthers), but reading someone is basing real estate purchases based on who's running the country is one of the craziest.

    Yes, I have some old friends living there for a long while and they feel just the same way. I asked the woman friend what she liked best about Texas and after a momentīs thought she said "The men are such gentlemen". They certainly agreed with the other points you raised. It seems like all of America was like that at one time, before the social experiments began.

    Iīve made a fair amount of money in real estate development and government is always one of the factors but I donīt expect you to know that if. like Barrack Obama, you are not an experienced investor.

    You will find a lot of Americans that really don't appreciate what they have and ignore people like you looking from the outside in. When they lose what they have then watch them complain. I value your opinion and all others from foreign countries that realize the opportunities here. Too bad liberals don't

    Feigning experience you think you have over me doesn't make it any less crazy.

    Because some of them are as big of political hacks as you ..... so I guess in your "opinion" the housing bubble didn't start until Bush took office .. and the housing bubble only existed from 2001 to 2006 ??
