    I prefer a President who has the basic sense to know Canada isn't part of the U.S.

    Texans have long welcomed the industry because of the cash it brings to sustain agriculture, but they also see its presence as part of their patriotic duty to help wean the United States off "foreign" oil. So the answer to companies that wanted to build pipelines has usually been simple: yes.

    Until TransCanada entered the picture. As the company pursues construction of a 1,179-mile-long cross-country pipeline meant to bring Canadian tar sands oil to South Texas refineries, it is finding opposition in the unlikeliest of places: oil-friendly Texas, a state that has more pipelines snaking through the ground than any other.

    In the minds of some landowners approached by TransCanada for land, the company has broken the code.

    Nearly half the steel TransCanada is using is not American-made, and the company won't promise to use local workers exclusively; it can't guarantee the oil will remain in the United States. It has snatched land and behaved like an arrogant foreigner.

    To fight back, Texas landowners are filing and appealing dozens of lawsuits, threatening to further delay a project that has already encountered many obstacles. Others are allowing activists to go on their land to stage protests. Several have been arrested.

    "We've fought wars for it. We stood our ground at the Alamo for it. There's a lot of reasons that Texans are very proud of their land and proud when you own land that you are the master of that land and you control that land," said Julia Trigg Crawford, who is fighting the condemnation of a parcel of her family's 650-acre Red'Arc Farm in Sumner, 115 miles northeast of Dallas.

    Go on record. Do you REALLY think Mr. Romney doesn't know Canada isn't part of the US? YEs? or No? Show us how fucked up in the brain you really are.
