A good example of state-level antipathy can be found in Texas where Governor/ersatz-presidential aspirant Rick plans to eliminate the Texas Historical Commission. According to the non-profit Texas Public Policy Foundation’s recommendation: “at a time when we are trying to make difficult decisions about preserving certain services to Texans, funding for programs like courthouse preservation is not the state’s top priority.” Perhaps the greatest irony in all of this is that these recent cuts are due in part to the Tea Party Movement’s success in the last election - the same folks parading around in tricorn hats waxing nostalgically and loudly, about the Founding Fathers and America’s roots.
