      I always loved that parts of Texas had homes that still feel rural while being close to the city. It is important to preserve this aspect of the great state of Texas!

      There is little that is more important than protecting the freedom and the diverse rights that Americans have enjoined and have made this country the envy of the entire world; especially when there is no real public safety issue and no other rights are being infringed upon.
