Bruce says "Then there will be groups like La Raza who will purposefully use the licenses as a means to register voters. The registration will be processed and no one will stop them. Poof, we have 1.4 million new voters; not one of whom is a United States citizen. " That is ridiculous. La Raza (mostly citizens of Mexican ancestry and legal residents and naturalized citizens) is no longer the group it used to be, though a tiny few members might still be "old school" enough to defy the laws to allow illegals with drivers licenses to register. Still there are checks made to disallow those.
the southern Mexican border, as is the southern American border, is like a sieve. Many from Guatemala and other Central and South American countries constantly get through and establish a life in both countries. Neither country seems able to control illegal immigration. As for Mexico not treating illegals with rights, their own citizens don't fair any better.
Because Texas is "friendly" to industry and tech, workers from California and other "liberal" states with liberal policies are there now, and the minority Mexican-Americans, Asians, Indians, Muslims now have laws allowing them to vote if they are legal citizens, those people are now the Texans. The "old corps" of Texans are now the minority (except for a few islands in some counties), and are finding it hard to deal with the new reality it seems.
Right---no guns on the bases for over 100 years. My husband was at a Marine base in the States 60 years ago. They had their "weapon", but no ammunition. Only certain security could have them. They did have ammo of course on the rifle range. In Korea in the war zone my husband wore "full metal jacket".

We don't know which of the passengers were Liberals or Conservative, but what we know is that like the rest of us, they were probably 50-50, but on that day they fought together as Americans!
Where is this smaller and saner and freer place? Every place has its pros and cons.
It is not the tax on the food itself which is a sales tax which many states don't charge, but everyone who earns an "income" is supposed to pay taxes, and if you operate a business selling food you are expected to pay the income tax and follow the rules on food handling in order to protect the public. If someone gets ill or dies from food sold by a minor, his parents are liable.
