    You cannot win a fixed game. You think the state or the courts give a darn about the little taxpayer? Let’s see the courts are either appointed by the guv (takes gobs of cash from the people who run el paso) or you get some local elected judge who seeks the support of the same people that give money to Perry. This state is a corrupt joke and that is why people like Hunt and Foster buy elections.

    Voting and filing lawsuits is a waste of time and it shows faith in a system that doesnt deserve your faith. Violent revolution is the only answer…which is exactly what the founders did!
