There are occasional election disputes in the great state of Texas in which, for one or many reasons, a candidate believes they have been cheated and the election in question was not valid. I know of no Texas case in which the issue of whether the voters have been cheated or denied their collective rights has been decided, probably because Texas courts will not grant standing for a generalized grievance against governmental conduct. However, in the Texas Constitution, Article I, Section 2 it is clearly stated: "All political power is inherent in the people … they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient." It appears this inalienable right is negated by assuring there are no effective means for the people to exercise their right.

However, control of the money power has been contested throughout western history and throughout American history.
