My Hat is Off to the Texas State Comptroller

The following link at the Texas State Comptroller's Office will give a
clear showing of investments; fund balances for the "State" Government of
This is the Texas State accounting. IT IS NOT the accounting from the thousands of other local governments in Texas
If that was done, it would dwarf the state showing.
Look at the standing balances as shown at each link on the page that
you will reach through the above link. See the multiple Treasury funds
listed at the bottom of the page..
Now the people of Texas will have a better understanding of just how big their government has grown by investment as they were masterfully entertained over the decades. After looking the Texas people will then get a better idea of how much power, control, and influence is accomplished by the moving and investment of these funds. Then think about the composite totals that would be standing if all local governments, the thousands of separate local government entities in Texas were then totaled for viewing with the state accounting. A rough estimate of all local Texas governments totals compiled with the state totals would be probably somewhere around eight to eleven trillion dollars.
Texas is not the exception per this showing, it is the standard of all other states. Just a big standard for a big state. My hat is off to the Texas Comptroller for giving an open and actuate showing in easy reference format for access and viewing by the public of "State" holdings. The next step would be to compile the showing in composite viewing of the several thousand other local governments in Texas. Cities, Counties, School Districts, Enterprise Operations, etc.. [You may want to copy the state showing just in case it gets pulled for whatever reason. Make a CD and share it.]
Now think about all states and the hundred thousand or so other local governments in the country. Government now owns it all by investment, the people own????
Schwarznegger (R) and those other politicians crying "Budget
Shortfall" when not showing their true accounting.. They call that a shell
game played at your expense folks, and the humerus part is; you are paying
them to do it.
Don't be played with political double-speak. Look, learn, and then act responsibly. Were you happy with government in 1965 over today? Everyone I asked without exception has answered yes. Let's use 1965 as the standard and after accounting for population increase and inflation, let's bring government back to that level and standard. You would be amazed if you realized what that standard would be. If we don't act and do this, let us all be honest with ourselves and change our country's name accordingly from America to a government ownership name like Russia. Russia learned the errors of their ways and are now following our current blueprint for ultimate control and profit realized for government. Stop participating in the big lie. The people at this time in recent history based on government's takeover of the wealth DO NOT own this country, government does by wealth held and investments moved for conquest and absolute control.The TRF can change the writing of our future history folks, where the people regain ownership with government being a true steward exclusively benefiting the people as was intended at the founding of this country and not government acting as a conduit for covert profit of their own internal circle as they front delegation of selective services. http://CAFR1.com/TRF1.html
