WHEREAS: "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." Thomas Jefferson Declaration of Independence

RESOLVED: WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND, Governor Rick Perry immediately convene a Special Legislative Session to create a statewide law which provides for the People to recall any and all elected or appointed officials We The People deem to not be serving the ends of government for which they were elected or appointed.
