To anyone that hates the idea of losing houses, woods or land to the Mid-States Corridor project. And to anyone that is not losing land or peace and quiet to the Mid-States Corridor project but hates to see nature get screwed over worse than it has already been in our area with more noise and air pollution.
Your only chance to stop the Mid-States Corridor project is for everyone to get very organized in a very big way and start writing lots of letters to people in power, as well as clogging up meetings, protesting outside the offices and houses of those that are building the Mid-States Corridor. You better get loud and noisy environmental and animal rights groups involved that can file papers in courts and organize people.
If all you do is write a letter to a newspaper, put a little sign in your yard and show up at a meeting where farmer Joe Bob talks in sentimental tones about his pig farm, those bulldozers will mow you down flat like General Patton’s tanks through France.
They are coming, it is a done deal unless you raise 14 kinds of hell. It will do no good to protest once the dozers are pushing dirt and dozing down woods and houses. You had better get organized, get busy fast and get very loud and active way before they start pushing dirt. If people are easy pushovers now, then the dozers will be pushing over the trees and houses soon enough.
I have talked to farm owners whose houses and land are in the path of destruction who have not even heard of the Mid-States Corridor project. So it is clear to me that those who oppose it are not making a big enough splash or effort to turn the tide of the coming destruction.
If you oppose it, you had better stomp your foot on the gas pedal of opposition hard and do not let up till the end.
