Party discipline. Republicans are extremely disciplined: when the party decides on something (one of its policies, or the way to vote on a bill) all the Republicans support it. Democrats you can't figure out. Mark Twain said he didn't belong to an organized political party, he was a Democrat. What he meant was, Democrats tend to vote their own consciences. We have pro-life and pro-choice Democrats, pro-bigger-military and pro-smaller military Democrats, pro-immigration and anti-immigration Democrats...
Sam Houston was a great political figure. He got Texas independence on the day of the Battle of San Jacinto. He was Governor of both Tennessee and Texas. He was a U.S. Senator and a U.S. Congressmen. He was a frontiersmen, statesmen, great orator, and accomplished military man. He is one of the founding fathers of Texas and a great Indian Rights Supporter. FYI: He started the saying "Remember the Alamo!.
