Default How would you improve the quality of life in Texas?

If you had the power to improve the quality of life in Texas all by yourself, how would you do so?

Cut down at least 45% of the mountain cedars (get rid of 90% of the males of that species). Cut all down outside the Hill Country. The health expenses are too high.

I would make it mandatory to have green bushes on every corner just like we do it in West Palm Beach. I would require everyone to sign a contract on their houses stating that they maintain their lawns to perfect greenery. Every home would have a sprinkler system. I would ship evergreen trees from the North to Houston. I would ship more palm trees to Corpus Christi. I would take back ALL of San Antonio's palm trees (they don't belong there), and have those flower people put a bunch of azaleas and bogonias downtown. I would install a major sprinkler system in Dallas. Demolish Austin's palm trees. Same thing for them. And basically, make Texas a more "green" state. Like Florida. That yellow dead grass has got to go.

Strengthen border barriers and increase spending for the border control, and allow all law enforcement agencies to enforce federal immigration laws. No more anchor babies.

Legalize gay marriage so more gay people would move to Texas.
Every gay neighborhood in the country has increased home values.
The neighborhoods improve.
