“North American Union”

3 Mar

Doctors, nurses, cotton farmers, rose gardners from Tyler, and anti-toll road campaigners run loose today in the Capitol, packing the House Gallery more than at any time I have ever seen.   The representative from San Antonio introduces the anti-Trans-Texas Corridor group TURF by saying that they are “grassroots… and seek to stop the creation of a North American Union.”  At that point, the TURFites cheered, and someone shouted, “Restore the Republic!”

The American Republic or the Texas Republic? I wasn’t sure.  I think it is a bit of a Ron Paul crowd, but their cause probably is justified.
