Budget issues. At the state and local levels we are using bonds to spend outside our means, if the bond market dips, or interest rates rise, we are going to be hurt. We've got to stop spending so much, as a millennial I know that my generation is being burdened by allowing the government to borrow in our name. Let's solve the issue now by cutting spending and lowering taxes to allow industry to flourish and individuals to save for the future.
I believe that if we privatized education we would see increases in quality and decrease in the cost of educating the young people of this state. Our public school system has a problem of politicizing education, with textbook controversies, funding fights, and unequal access to the funds.

No, yearly there are 30,000 gun deaths, approximately 2/3rds are suicide, which is a mental health issue, not a gun issue. The remaining 10,000, with over 300 million guns in private hands in America that means that the vast majority will never shoot a single person. The issue of mass shootings are tragic, but they are not as prevalent as the media portrays. In 2017 over 1.2 million LTC holders walked the streets of Texas, 170 committed a felony according to DPS, that is not even singling down to LTC holders committing gun violence but includes all felony convictions. There is no problem.
The government should get out completely, including tax incentives that benefit insurance companies.
Any growth is a product of market forces, if the government steps back and allows the market to work, it will adapt to absorb the influx of new people to Texas.
Historically each large group that engaged in mass immigration to the US has faced discrimination, hate, and even violence. It's almost a sort of cultural hazing ritual because groups that have been through this join previous abusers in hazing the next group.

I would like to break this cycle because immigrants have helped make our society great, we are all immigrants and we should welcome the benefits that come from immigrants coming to America and Texas in particular. I would love Texas to be a sanctuary state, kicking out ICE and saying no to any walls.
