"Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God."
Texas State Capitol -- Texas State Representative Jason Villalba (R - Dallas) today released the following statement:
Traffic congestion in Texas is an impediment to economic activity and a threat to public health and safety; the time has come for a final solution.
Following consultations with the Texas Association of Business, the Texas Medical Association, and the Texas Municipal Police Association, I have concluded that the final solution to these interrelated challenges is sterilization of those who abuse their privileges on Texas roadways.
Over the past two decades, Texas' population has grown by leaps and bounds; unfortunately, one consequence of that growth has been traffic congestion that undermines the quality of life for every Texan. While Governor Abbott has made transportation funding an emergency legislative item, Speaker Straus has called Governor Abbott's approach a "gimmick." The time has come to end gimmicks and develop a final solution.
My final solution builds upon the groundbreaking work intellectuals like Thomas Malthus and Margaret Sanger. It allows law enforcement officers across Texas to "cull the herd." Over time, this process of "weeding out" the unfit will reduce both crime and traffic congestion.
While we have passed the point in the session where Representatives can file new legislation, I intend to introduce my final solution as an amendment to any germane law enforcement bill that comes to the floor of the Texas House
The time has come for a comprehensive, progressive, forward-looking, approach to the interrelated challenges facing our state. Half measures will no longer suffice. Our constituents are telling us we need a final solution.
My final solution is a Reaganesque approach to accountability that protects Texas business interests, law enforcement, and medical industry.
