RE: Texas (was Florida) PE-Bureaucracy

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Warren:
 
If we still have any real bureaucracy in Texas, it is obviously now administered by Republicans, because we outlawed all Democrats nearly 25 years ago!  However, whatever bureaucracy exists today was created long ago by their liberal Democrat predecessors (LBJ, Sam Rayburn, Ann Richards, etc.). 
 
I would argue, though, that Texas is nearly bureaucracy-free.  We believe in small government.  For example, the Texas Legislature is convening this month for the first time in two years.  They meet for four months every other year, even if their isn't any new business to conduct.  That results in less laws, smaller government, lower taxes, etc.  The Texas PE Board might not be as responsive to Rajendran as he would like because they are poorly funded and have very few employees.  Of our annual $230 PE renewal fee, they only get to keep $30.

Thank you, Stan. In light vein, India's beauracracy was the legacy left behind by the British, who had their presence there from 1600AD. Who gets the credit for TX?
