As a Scottish descendant in the "Texas Colony", I
have to admit we do deserve the horrible
reputation in capital punishment and the
expenditures on prisons now exceeds higher education.
It seems that when a people emigrate, they bring
with them the worst of the original culture. The
French in Canada and Louisiana for instance and
the Ulster Scots here in Texas. I imagine only
Pennsylvania out does Texas is Scottish surnames,
even on a per capita basis.
The Ku Klux Klan is an Ulster Scot institution
that brings shame all over this land. Our greatest
challenge is the prevention of a military coup de
e'tat in the United States, and we could see a
horrible worldwide holocaust.
