    That is exactly what I am afraid of as well.

    The paranoia after 9/11 that allowed the government to become ridiculously controlling truly disgusted me.

    Another 9/11-style attack and I fear American's rights/freedoms will be restricted to a truly scary extent.

    I just asked you a simply question of "why would a hypothetical Texas army be made up of mostly Hispanics?" and you gave some snarky response.

    And what's you assumption about how we think differently?

    I have a strong feeling it would be one of those...'Don't let a good crisis go to waste', moments.

    There is a large percentage of Hispanics in Texas. I thought you would be able to figure this out, but I guess I was mistaken. Also, much of the white population is older and therefore would probably be in the minority in a hypothetical Texas army.

    I can accept that.

    You do know the government lumps White and Hispanic together? That's because we are both Caucasian.

    I married my wife back when whites marrying a Mexican wasn't always looked upon as nice. Originally my parents weren't overjoyed and her dad was down right pissed off about it. Over the past 41 years the world had adjusted, we've remained the same.
