Texas has a surplus while many other states are in debt – Why?

There is a great argument going on in these comments to a short D Magazine Article:


There is a more detailed discussion of this topic at Reason.com.


I agree with the person who writes in their post about Texas selling roads to toll companies, whcih I oppose, being a big part of our surplus, but apparently, according to the second article, the state comptroller does a good job, by national standards, of promoting programs that work and doing away with ones that are a waste of money.

And, to be honest, as a life-long resident, although I don’t like the weather, culture, or politics of Texas, I have to admit that it is run pretty well, over all, when compared to many other states.

I am a logical, open-minded, liberal, progressive, radical, green, independent individual living in the heart of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, amongst apparently brainwashed conservative southern Baptist Republican zombies. I'm tired of the lies of the government and their media mouthpieces and their corporate masters. I'm tired of the cheating and the stealing and the killing. I'm ready for the future. But the only way we are going to fix things is to all band together and say NO MORE! We have to start punishing the rich white collar criminals as harshly as the poor black blue-collar criminals, if not more so. And I'm tired of cults (AKA religions). They are dangerous, divisive, and delusional. We should evolve past religions towards a global humanitarian ethics. We should move away from a new world order and get back to city states with local democracy, power, food, and water.
