Ports-to-Plains: Progress, but at what cost? asks The John Birch Society
Texan-native Kelly Taylor will present the real costs of allowing trade corridors to run from Mexico to Canada in the name of increased trade at a local John Birch Society event Jan. 12 in Lubbockalt

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — January 6, 2009 — Many are hailing the consensus reached at the recent Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor Summit as the beginning of a “bright future” for West Texas.  But Texas chapters of The John Birch Society are asking, “At what cost?”  Texan-native Kelly Taylor will answer that question and present the downside of helping the government cater ever-more to cheap foreign imports while the manufacturing base of the United States continues to erode.

Taylor’s presentation will be held Monday, January 12, 2009, in the Venetian 1 Room of Embassy Suites Hotel at 7:00 p.m.  The hotel is located at 5215 South Loop 289 in Lubbock, Texas.  Her analysis comes the day before the Texas legislature begins its 2009 session.

Those involved with the Ports-to-Plains project are already contacting Washington, D.C. to beg federal money from President-elect Barack Obama.  It has already been reported that the Texas Transportation Commission has allocated $140 million for related projects from Dumas to San Angelo, Texas.

Taylor is an Austin-based writer, filmmaker and producer of a politically based TV talk show.  She is a contributor to The New American magazine and has extensively researched and written about the NAFTA Superhighway.  She is heralded as one of the first to report on the collusion between Texas officials and Federal officials to install toll booths on existing Texas highways to fund the construction of corridor highways owned and operated by foreign investors.  She is sought-after for her popular and telling “Oh Well, I Wasn’t Using My Texas Heritage Anyway” presentation.

Founded in 1958 and headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, The John Birch Society is dedicated to restoring and preserving freedom under the U.S. Constitution.  Members come from all walks of life and are active throughout the 50 states on local, regional and national issues.  United by a strong belief in personal freedom and limited government, plus a sense of duty, members have played a continuous and pivotal role in halting legislation and federal policies that threaten the independence of our country and the freedom of American citizens.  The New American is published by JBS.  Visit www.JBS.org for more information.
