Letter to the Editor: Hooray for Ooida Truckers Boycott

Editor,

I was elated to see the WorldNetDaily news report that the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association in America, is calling for truckers to boycott and oppose foreign-owned toll roads such as the Indiana Toll Road, which has been leased to a consortium of Spanish and Australian interests, and the Trans-Texas corridor, the four-football-field-wide NAFTA Superhighway parallel to Interstate-35 which Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to begin next year.

Todd Spencer, executive vice-president of OOIDA indicates a tremendous concern for increased imported terrorism across our open borders as "worldwide trucks are the weapons of choice of terrorists," he emphasized. I certainly agree with Mr. Spencer of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association that foreign-owned toll roads and The NAFTA Superhighway must be stopped, as they amount to selling America to foreign, mostly hostile, interests.

The NAFTA Super highway will be a superhighway for terrorists to stream into our country from all over the world driving semi-trucks and limousines instead of having to sneak in. We should demand congress support H. Con. Res.-487 sponsored by congressmen Virgil Good, Walter Jones, Ron Paul, and Tom Tancredo to stop The North American Union and NAFTA Superhighway system now- thereby securing our borders and jobs.
