U.S. Senator John Corynyn commemorated Texas Independence Day by reading Lieutenant Colonel William Barret Travis' letter ahead of the Battle of the Alamo on the Senate floor this week.

The full speech can be seen here:

“I rise today to commemorate a very special day in Texas history, and I would say in American history, a day that inspires pride and gratitude in my state. I rise to commemorate Texas Independence Day, which is celebrated on March 2," said Senator Cornyn.

“Many of the Texas patriots who fought in the revolution went on to serve in the United States Congress, and I'm honored to hold the seat originally held by then-general Sam Houston, but later President of the Republic and United States Senator for Texas," said Cornyn.

“More broadly, I'm honored to have the opportunity to serve 26 million Americans that call Texas home because of the sacrifices made by these brave patriots 178 years ago. May we always remember the Alamo and may God continue to bless Texas and these United States.”

What would Travis do? Cornyn has shown his deep love of freedom by voting for the Patriot Act, TARP bailout, and continued NSA surveillance. Cornyn's idea of Texas values is hiding your senate vote on the debt ceiling hike. He thinks soundbites and and speaking about values he doesn't posses will win him re-election. Sadly, he's probably right. Whatever democrat runs against this jerk gets my vote. I've had enough of him!
