Truckers without Borders

The

Telegraph

has an interesting

story

on Rick Perry's Trans-Texas Corridor, in which the reporter connects the mega-road to a larger plan for a NAFTA Superhighway.

Promoted by the North America's Supercorridor Coalition, this superhighway would effectively make the borders moot, according to its critics, which include a number of folks in Temple, where the reporter visited.

Hank Gilbert, a rancher, said: "At the Battle of the Alamo people came from all over the US to fight for our sovereignty. Now we are giving it away to the very people we fought." Like many protesters, he believes the link will make it easier for cheap goods to flood into the US. "Farmers fear that this kind of globalisation will put them out of business," he said.

Ah, the ol' Alamo quote. A classic. — Keith Plocek
