I had left a couple of races indeterminate. In the US Senate race, I expressed the priority of unseating John Cornyn; not because I dislike him or doubt his sentiments.

U.S. vs. Darby Lumber Co. (1941) is one of the most destructive Supreme Court decisions ever handed down by the high court. Through this decision the Court gave near unlimited application of the Commerce Clause—thus being a precursor to the Obamacare decision issued by the Roberts Court—which consequently gutted the 10th Amendment of all the Founders’ intended meaning.
