That sounds pretty good. It would be great if it could be part of some important document that government officials would have to swear to uphold.

Pete, don't take this the wrong way, but that's the kind of crazy talk that makes folks tune out to whatever else you have to say...

Not in Texas!!! Next time you travel the Interstate and see the car's being searched, ask yourself this question, "Were they singled out because of the color of their skin? Did the cop have probable cause? Did the cop threaten the driver that if they don't agree, he will call the team in and they will tow the vehicle in and tear it apart?
