In an effort to circumvent current balanced budget laws in Oklahoma, certain entities, governors, and legislators, have turned their focus to the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority for the building of new roads in our state.   OTA is unique in it's ability to sell bonds to fund projects.   The Turnpike Authority was originally meant to be a self funding and self terminating agency.   Somehow this unregulated agency has built an empire lasting over 65 years during which time not a single toll road has ceased taking tolls.   We ask you read further to see if future projects will affect your family or loved ones.

Below are cities listed in Oklahoma Statute, Title 69, chapter 1, Article 17, Section 1705 which authorizes and empowers The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority to construct, maintain, repair and operate turnpike projects and highways.   These projects are fully approved by the legislature and only await OTA funding!!   What Harrah is learning now may save other small Oklahoma towns in the future.   The OTA doesn't ask.  They demand and take.   We implore all Oklahomans to read further and weigh the cost to our freedom.   We cannot allow the OTA to take our homesteads, or yours,  for their own agenda. 

Ada, Altus
Broken Arrow
Catoosa
Davis, Duncan
Enid
Heavner, Henryetta
Moore, Mustang
Newkirk, Norman
Oklahoma City
Pawhuska, Ponca City, Poteau
Sayre,Snyder,Stigler
Tulsa,Tuttle
Velma
Watonga,Webber Falls,Woodward

While some of these distinguished cities and towns may wish for improved highway access
, they don't deserve the plague of anxiety or threat of eminent domain that the OTA's presence has brought to Choctaw, Harrah, Luther, Newalla, and Jones residents.  

Cities list was taken from the following portions of state statute:

No one out here wants these turnpikes! We like it like it is. I am ashamed to say that when your home state shits on it's people who love this state, for the greed of more money is totally wrong! Immoral and not very Godly like. I for one will not travel your turn pikes because I have been betrayed by my state because of greed and sin. All involved are not Christians and if you claim you are, guess what God will sprew you from his mouth and you shall be cast into eternal Hell!

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

I agree to that. Well, anything can go through the eye of a needle easier, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. But then again, there are still rich men who tend to offer and commit their lives to glorify God and do all for his glory, like helping out those in need. Not all of the rich men are all about the money alone, for some tend to engage in business to be rich for the purpose of helping and honoring God. Though, I would say yes to your statement, if specifically, the mentioned rich man is also a greedy rich man.

This is a travesty, if the people don't want it then it shouldn't be forced upon them.

Thanks for seeing the truth. We need you to help share our story. This is not about a turnpike, as much as it is about the death of the American Dream. The Constitution "the supreme law of the land" has been disregarded. Our Representative Govt. has been circumvented by OTA, EOCP, OML, and our reps. Many people have shared their heartbreaking stories with us and they only want to keep what they have fought so hard for. If that is wrong then we have completely lost our way as a Nation.
