To: who knows what evil?
Property Taxes in Texas are not as high as people would think. My wife works in Louisiana and pays 3 to 4 thousand dollars in State Income Taxes as compared to the 2 thousand dollars we pay in property taxes in Texas. The schools my children attend are well run in my view and most of the teachers are churching going conservatives. The sup is a Christian and allows prayer and Christian groups to come to the school for special programs for instant we just had the Christian Power lifters and the whole High School was there to see and hear their testimony's.

That is true, a lot of people gripe about them, but even accounting for them, Texas has the second lowest per-capita tax rate in the country. The only difference is that people often have to write check for property taxes while other taxes are deducted from paychecks or added to another bill so property taxes seem high. My friends in Arkansas pay about 30% more in property taxes and they have income tax on top of that.
