On 24th February, 1836, whilst besieged in The Alamo, William B. Travis wrote his now famous Victory or Death letter to “… the People of Texas and All Americans “, in which he pleaded for reinforcements “…. to come to our aid, with all dispatch “. In the letter he stated that he would “…never surrender or retreat…”.
Texans now face another foreign foe in the form of Texas Central Rail and their Japanese paymasters who wish to effectively steal and control Texas land by means of eminent domain to construct their ill conceived high speed rail line between Houston and Dallas.
Once again, one hundred and eighty years later, Texans need to stand up and be counted in order to defeat this foreign occupation of our State.
Our local elected representatives have all stated their opposition to the proposed high speed rail, but Governor Abbot and Lt. Governor Patrick have been strangely silent on the proposal, yet they have repeatedly expressed their commitment to the People of Texas and the State in which we all live.
Now is the time to show just where their allegiance lies and take positive action to prevent the use of eminent domain in order to construct the proposed high speed rail line across our State and to thwart an invasion by a foreign entity.
I ask that you follow the example of William B. Travis and write a letter to both the Governor and Lt. Governor and request that they “come to our aid with all dispatch” and do everything in their power to prevent the use of eminent domain by a private foreign company in order to acquire our land and construct this unwanted high speed rail line.
I suggest that you refer to the victory or death letter penned by William B. Travis and if mailed in the next few days your letter should reach our “leaders” by it’s anniversary.
