  1. A non-permitted, foreign owned, for-profit oil company can seize your land and put an oil pipeline on it. This is America.
Meet Julia Trigg Crawford, a Texas farmer who had her land condemned and taken through eminent domain by the Canadian oil company, TransCanada. Although they don’t have a permit yet, in anticipation of the Keystone XL pipeline, TransCanada claims it’s a common carrier, like a water or electricity line. In Texas, claiming that your are a common carrier is as easy as checking a box. As a corporation, you don’t have to prove what that “good” is. She is now in court fighting to appeal the condemnation decision.
I ask you, how is this in the public interest when the oil will be sold on the global market?
