Thank you.

I will vote now...for Texas, not some baloney revisionist touchy feeling crap some anti-Texas moron came up with.

Texans are proud of the Alamo - not San Antonio de Valero Mission mishmash crap.
When I saw the petition and noticed it was on a website for someone running for office I decided to check to see how much truth was being portrayed. Being a native for many generations, Texas history and how the state was founded is part of our swagger. Don't mess with Texas isn't about littering, its a warning. Trying to rewrite history whether it's our's (Texas) or anybody else's is just flat out wrong.

Hopefully this will stop and Bush will not be reelected.

After evaluation of the master plan, it makes you wonder if it was designed by a landscaping team from “Better Homes and Gardens.” We see the historic and hallowed ground of the Alamo adorned with trees, an artificial stream (acequia) flowing through a variety of native shrubs and grasses, and large glass walls to complete the greenhouse look and feel.
Instead of focusing on and presenting the most compelling moment in Texas history, the master planners opt for a presentation that diminishes the sacrifice made by those who perished in the famous battle in preference for a memorial park where people can gather, lounge in the shade, cool their toes, and take pictures.

This is not how we interpret and present our nation’s historic battlefields.

The inclusion of a rooftop restaurant on a sanguine battlefield is in poor taste. It’s an affront to the men and boys who made the ultimate sacrifice for Texas freedom, and an offense to those who embrace Alamo Plaza as sacred ground.
Remember the Alamo! :txflag:

Petitions and politeness have proven to be ineffective - these tyrants do what they want, and it is usually with our hard earned tax dollars. At some point, true patriots will have to step up and fight and die for what is right.

Remember the Alamo!

We need to remind Bush about what happened at San Jacinto too when Santa Anna didn't turn around and go home.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

Signed. Although I only sign into FB every couple months, I posted this there as well. Every Texan needs to spread this as much as we can.

When I was redirected off Facebook and saw the root url, I thought it was somewhat odd as well. I was already familiar from other sources about the plan to "Disney-ize" the place, so I shrugged and did the petition. I guess if the project gets redirected back to a respectful reality, Patterson wants to get as much perceived political credit out of it as possible........
