The State of Texas has recently put into force the requirement that all Real Estate Licenses being renewed after January 1, 2008, be accompanied by the agent getting fingerprinted.
I must strongly protest this requirement. How about taking blood samples ? How about DNA samples ? This is an intrusion... a personal invasion of my privacy. I very much resent it.
There are some who would say "if you have nothing to hide, then what's the problem ?" It has nothing to do with having anything to hide ! But it has everything to do with Big Government getting involved in our personal lives... one more time.
Please do not jump the gun here and think I am some sort of extremist. I am just a nice Catholic girl from Cleveland trying to make it in the bright lights and city life of Fort Worth, Texas. Sometimes I vote for Democrats, sometimes I vote for Republicans. It the upcoming elections... I seem to favor Senator Joe Biden on the Democratic side, and Governor Mike Huckabee on the Republican side.
I only share this information with you to show I consider myself to be of a "main stream" political mind-set. But... and here's the but you probably knew was coming. The governor of Texas is a conservative Republican... Governor Rick Perry. I thought Republicans were for less government, not more !
A very wise man... Benjamin Franklin... once said: "The man or woman who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever get either."
How can anyone argue with a statement like his ?
