Texas Liberal Video–Reading Federalist Papers At Site Of Texas Independence To Assert Federal Power Over The States
Above is a video of me reading a brief passage from Federalist Paper #9 at the San Jacinto Battlefield State Historic site. This reading is in response to recent disloyal comments by Republican Texas Governor Rick Perrry suggesting that Texas might wish to consider leaving the union.
The video runs 1 minute and 40 seconds.
The San Jacinto Battlefield Site is where Texas won independence from Mexico in 1836.
Here is information about Federalist Paper # 9 and about the Federalist Papers. As I say in the video, Federalist #9 asserts the supremacy of the Federal Government over the authority of the individual states
Here is the link for visiting the San Jacinto Battlefield Historic site in LaPorte, Texas. LaPorte is just outside of Houston.
As you heard in the video, I was at the battlefield on a windy day. Here is an explanation of wind.
In the video you can see the wind move the clouds that are in the background. Here is an explanation of why clouds are white along with other facts about clouds.
