The Trans Texas Corridor/The NAFTA Super Highway Is Back In The Texas State Legislator

"No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session."- Mark Twain

            When will these Politician get it. These roads are not theirs to sell.The people of Texas defeated it before and now we have to do it again. The people of Texas never consented our roads being sold to a private corporation let alone a foreign enterprise. Our elected representatives need to reminded of the Texas Constitution they sworn to uphold. Here is  Article 1 sections 1& 2 of the Texas State Constitution which states:
Sec. 1.  FREEDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY OF STATE. Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States.
 Sec. 2.  INHERENT POLITICAL POWER; REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient
 Where is it in the Texas Constitution the people gave you all the authority to give our roads to a privately owned corporation? There is no authority for the legislator to turn over the road the people paid for with their tax money. This is treason. We thought we had a group of legislators who were going to stand up for Texas sovereignty and all we have is a bunch of sell outs.There is a series of bills that will be hearing in the House Transportation Committee as an attempt to resurrect the Trans Texas Corridor/NAFTA Super Highway. Here are the Bills that have red flags that will be going before the House Transportation Committee for hearings on March 31.2011 These series of bills will tax and privatize tolls roads.Allows to take existing roads paid for and make them toll roads are HB 2186, HB 2388, HB 2801, HB 2985, HB 3561, HB 3563-HB 3565, and HB 3734 need to be fought because Texas is under assault from within by our own legislators who sold out to special interest and should be tried for treason if they are a sell out to foreign corporations.All these bills give a blank check to tax, set up tolls on existing roads if they all pass and become law. I do not want to pay for tolls on roads I  already pay for through my gas taxes to enrich Wall Street.The Bankers and foreign corporations. I do not want to get ripped off by these robber barons from the other end.
The worst of the bills are filed by Representative Larry Phillips is HB 3798 relating to the development of toll projects through  public-private partnerships.This reestablishes the Trans Texas corridor. This will establish toll roads that will charge up to 80 cents a mile during peak hours.
The second Bill HB 2432 file by Representative John Davis would give blanket authorization to enter into these agreements. Both bills allow secrecy with no financial disclosure to the public to see with no sunset provision in them. These bills are a recipe for disaster that further undermines the liberties and sovereignty of the State of Texas.The good news is no one has co signed these bills yet. This is the time we the people of Texas make the Trans Texas corridor or any highway turning into a toll road the third rail of politics. Touch our roads than your voted out.Lets make sure these bill die in committee and never see the light of day again. These bills are no benefit to the people of Texas. These bill only enrich the foreign corporation and bankers if they become law. Any bill that sells off infrastructure to a private corporation foreign or domestic.They need to be removed from office or we will keep fighting them every year. It is not their roads to sell or give away. 


  1. "...Back in the State Legislator."

    You mean "Legislature." It's pronounced "lej-iss-LATE-cher." A legislator is one who is elected to represent the people (not that they do anymore).

  2. NobodysaysBOO:
    The ones the the HINHIES always win with rote memory and cheating with earphones ect.!
    PLEASE stick to the topic.
    Dont we have enough trouble without this spelling CRAP!This is very tipically TEXAS!
    OF COURSE this nightmare is BACK it never left just like BUSH. He never left just put his crons in charge!Now the idiots of TEXAS\Mexas willprobably ELECT BUSH again instead of HANGING him!

  3. Quit hating on the spelling please people. The point here is that these politicians are trying to overstep their authority. And they are trying to do it in secrecy to make the matter worse. When we are already hurting monetarily in this country, the last thing that we need is to pay more of our hard earned money to the benefit of foreign companies and bankers that are greedily destroying things. Texas roads are in poor shape and they definitely need to be fixed and expanded to allow for less congested travel. But this doesn't address these problems at all. This is just another attempt for politicians to pocket some dirty money through working shady deals.

  4. I see a lot of blathering about sovereign rights, while not a thing about why you think the alleged NAFTA highway is any more real than then space aliens running the Fed.

    Are you just emoting here, or do you have anything to back up the highway thing? Oh, right, it's secret, no no one can know about it, other than you Illuminati blog writers.
