Chris Bell, has recently stepped up his rhetoric as he now says he opposes Perry’s Trans Texas Corridor, since it’s become popular to do so. But, the cat is now out of the bag.
THE TRUTH OF BELLS SUPPORT FOR THE TTC WAS EXPOSED by a recent live radio interview with Ron Thulin of KAHL in San Antonio.
While I was live on the air with Ron Thulin yesterday, pushing our launch of the StopPerry.com TV ad campaign this week, I was shocked when Ron told me how he had exposed Chris Bell’s support of the TTC. Chris Bell tried to flip flop, panicked, stuttered, and quickly change the subject, as a guilty man would.
CHRIS BELL'S OWN WORDS COME BACK TO HAUNT HIM!
Here are Chris Bells own words in support of the corridor, unedited, from the Dallas Morning News February 2006 Voters Guide (http://www.vgt2004.org/a-dallas06/candidate-detail.go?id=3170238):
Dallas Morning News Question: Are you satisfied with current plans for funding high-speed rail as an integral component of the Trans-Texas corridor? Please explain.
Chris Bells Answer: I think high-speed rail has an important place in our state’s long-term transportation plans, and I will support efforts to speed up the timetable for introducing high-speed rail here in Texas. Texas should not have to wait until 2025 to begin real development on the rail component of the TTC.

CHRIS BELL TRIES TO TRICK TEXANS AGAIN!
Chris Bell was beginning to be successful at tricking many radio stations across Texas who erroneously repeated Bell’s claim that he was the ONLY candidate against the Trans Texas Corridor.
Bell based this lie on a grain of sand, smoke and some mirrors. Boring Bell saw a report Strayhorn had produced years ago which mentioned using limited traditional toll roads, where tolls pay for the road you drive on. Our group has not opposed traditional toll roads, we’ve been very clear that we oppose tolls on roads we’ve already paid for. Tolling roads we’ve already paid for is Rick Perry’s scam to tax us for something we’ve already been taxed for, creating corporate welfare slush funds. Funded freeways have never been tolled in the history of the country.
Bell took this lie to a whole other level and claimed Strayhorn supported the TTC. None of Bell’s claims were true, as they have been built on a crafty imagination of a man that is known for doing nothing and used as a placeholder for the Gov. campaign.
FACT: Strayhorn has received the support of 100% of the anti TTC and all “no tolls on roads we’ve already paid for” groups throughout Texas. Not one of these citizen groups in Texas supports Bell, and rightly so. Strayhorn has done more than talk, she’s already delivered results, and that’s why we ALL endorse her.
PERRY AND BELL. CRIPS AND BLOODS.
While Strayhorn has been the only state official fighting the corruption with us over the past years, Gov. Perry has created his boondoggles with dirty Republicans and dirty Democrats who want to ignore the public and eat at the special interest trough.
A reminder, since 2004 our multi-partisan citizen PAC has supported and fought for only independent thinking Republicans (such as Keel, Marcias, and Latham) and independent thinking Democrats (Howard, Coleman and Eckhardt), the good guys and gals are a rare breed indeed.
Boring Bell also failed to show up at dozens of TTC hearings that Strayhorn has taken the time to attend across Texas, along with thousand of Texans who fear loosing their homes to Perry’s TTC foreign profit making scheme. Chris Bell also failed to show up, after being invited, to any of our important anti-TTC events across the state. Most of these events, especially our largest one, Tunes not Tolls, took place before we made any endorsement decisions.
CRIPS AND BLOODS. Why has Chris Bell failed to say he’ll stop the TTC or have any alternative? The corrupt portion of the democrat party machine, desperate to regain power, will most probably want to move into Perry’s TTC territory, profit and sell Texas for their own gain. Sadly, this opinion is simply based on what the two parties have been doing since they were born.
The rail portion (NOT light rail) of the TTC is
