“The million man march for change would have never happened if a million men did not see that the way they were being treated was unjust” thus if we all do not start to believe that there is a major lie going on that can be resolved by realizing the truth and applying a way to change the lies we have become accustomed to, we cannot move forward. So if your tired and think life sucks do something for yourself and all Americans smarten up”‘to accept the scraps of life is not sufficient for change” post something that is fact everyday see how much you can contribute to changing thoughts towards accepting truth instead of ignoring ” – R. Lewis
What will our monumental quote be for our cause ? First we need some active people to get our groups and families and Hispanic movement to come together.
But educating everyone is the first step to getting people active and coming together as one. We all are aware about the corruption in Texas lets stand together and do something about it!
NOTHING’s CHANGED – Guess no one want’s their inheritance – they would rather talk and complain.
We are not trying to offend anyone, but the honest truth is what it is. We have had slow growth on petitions, then it picks up, then slow, no donations to keep this going to gather the ranks together, and fight, only a few people are sincerly active and they get burned out because they report to us, their families, relatives, don’t want to do anything. They say they just want to sit around and wait.
Some of our really appreciated volunteers give us story after story of them trying to persuade people to action. We thank these hard working volunteers so much, and say to them, keep on doing it. do not give up.
It is almost like the sleeping giants, our army of Spanish land grant heirs are still sleeping. We know you care, but something is wrong and must be righted.
Someone must tell them to wake up, and maybe that is the VOC. Because if they do nothing it will be another generation doing the same thing over and over and over again, with what kind of result ? no result.
MLK and other movement leaders would keep telling the truth like this. We almost feel like these great leaders feel the same way we do, but they kept telling the truth to people over and over until the masses of people got together and started doing something.
“The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be… The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.” MLK
Another problem is we are still to divided as heirs, we are coming together, but not fully yet. It’s great if you support more than one organization or cause that is fighting for the same thing. But join them all, get active in everything you can.
So we are sorry if this offends or beats some people down, but we hope it does the opposite and wakes them up to start fighting together with us.
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” MLK
Please help us , join, volunteer, get others active and keep fighting until we will, because we will win, we will not give up!
Because we have had no donations since several months, we had to cut expenses, that caused some problems with our site which was down for over 24 hours. We had to pay $1500.00 to get it back up. We apologize for the inconvenience, please make a donation today to help us keep going thanks.
The petition are just a start to our cause. We have 25,000 in our circling network, maybe a little more. That is not much to the politicians and world to notice. In our consultations with experts we are taking this path to build up an army of people behind our cause.
However we find some interesting statistics.
There are over 3 million registered “Hispanic” voters in Texas. 38.4% of the population. There are 54 million in the United States. We also find that many Hispanics have identity issues, they do not want to be labelled Hispanic due to discrimination and other issues. This is a problem for our country, not just the State of Texas. When did the African Americans say “I do not want to be labelled African American?” Never, they stood for their rights and had millions with them doing so. Why are we as Hispanics not so proud of our heritage anymore? Our grandparents, and great grandparents would roll over in their graves. We must be proud of our heritage, we must take a stand for our rights. This will never go away, and it will get worse, if we do not take a stand.
History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.
– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
There is a growing number of apathetic Hispanics in the United States. They do not want to do anything to fight for their rights. It is almost is the fight is out of them, or they don’t care. It is like they are in some coma – brainwashed induced. Of the US population, the Hispanic origin is now the nation’s largest ethnic or race minority 1 Individuals who identify as Latino are close to surpassing the share of Texans solely identified as white, but no single ethnic group makes up the majority of Texas residents.2 With these kind of figures why is there so much Apathy and Identity we are becoming the majority? It goes back the long fight, the fight that caused our ancestor’s died for, were robbed, abused and discriminated against. Many have given up. It’s not only the Hispanics, it’s a large part of Americans when it comes to politics. But people in our network have not given up, we stand and we will fight.
It is not malicious acts that will do us in but the appalling silence and indifference of good people. All that is needed for evil to run rampant is for good women and men to do nothing. – MLK
Now is the time energize
People are not born apathetic, people become that way. So one sure step out of apathy is getting them involved in a project, a new project or task. Give them some control – if they join this network, there are ways they can start their own projects and lead great causes and efforts. Apathy is linked to how we feel, but we are not really this way, we feel this way so we act this way. Define the cause, what took the wind out of your sail? Getting involved in our network will get you a new wind. Change the things you can change, then help others get involved. Put yourself in situations where you feel energized. Maybe music helps, or people that make you laugh put yourself in those environments. List some of the past joys, and think about them Maybe it was a successful event or project in your life it made you feel good. Realize that this network has projects you can take charge and help that will bring back those joys in life. Snapping out of apathy involves forcing a change in your life. Ask yourself do you really want to live this way the rest of your life ? Remember the great accomplishments in your life. Start forcing some small changes and get involved this is the way out of apathy because you are creating new habits. 3 Now energize yourself with these new involvements.
So as you know from our past year we have many ways for you to get involved, we have lists of ideas, places you can contribute those skills you have. We are going to need your help for this, and this is something you won’t want to miss out on. Getting involved in our network is what you need and what we need as a network. We talk about the power of 10 x 10 a lot. In business this works. In sales it works, you probably heard the phrase “It’s all about the numbers.” This means that when you contact 100 people, you might get 3-10 that are interested. 10 x 10 works the same way in building something. It makes you feel great when you try to energize 10 people, and encourage them to energize 10 people. Let me give you an example.
In college, my first year there was a Proposition on the upcoming election. I wasn’t even registered to vote. I had been in student government since high school, but that was the extent of my involvement with politics. But this proposition was going to take money away from schools and cancel programs, like sports, drama, and music. I thought I better get registered to vote. I consulted my teacher from high school and a colleague. Asking what I could do to make sure this does not get passed. They showed me ways other people were active , there was a network already in place. I went to the office and they said get people energized at your college. So I had access (just like you do from our network) to campaign material and press stuff. I spent a little bit of time each day, getting students to vote and asking them what they thought about this Proposition and many did not know about it, until I showed them, and they were against it like me. I told them if we don’t vote it maybe passed. In the end I got 30,000 people to vote against this, and this was enough with the efforts of others to make sure this proposition did not get passed. This was a huge defining moment in my life and it still is a great joy to this day.
You can do the same thing. For example on Nov 3rd there is a consititutional amendment , do you know about it? Do you agree with it ? http://www.votetexas.gov/voting/what/ What about the elections , this is one way in our network you can get involved.
But it goes beyond this, it means getting involved in our cause for our mineral rights. We need everyone’s help to reach over 1 Million supporters / followers / activists / heirs /
What about a future event we were talking about ? We are working on details, whether we March in Austin or in Washington DC. Our team also discussed multiple cities. We want to give you enough time to prepare and for us to prepare so please join our network and share your ideas, and volunteer skills to make this happen.
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Even a superficial look at history reveals that no social advance rolls in on the wheels inevitability. Every step towards the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. Without persistent effort, time itself becomes an ally of the insurgent and primitive forces of irrational emotionalism and social destruction. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

The Roaring Texas Spanish Land Grant Giants Million+ Petition Project
We hereby decree:
We are Roaring Texas Spanish Land Grant Giants who will not be silenced until justice is served!
That our rights as legal descendants and Texas land grant heirs of oil and mineral rights our rightfully ours.
When the course of a human event like our happens, it becomes necessary for people to dissolve political bands which have connected them with another and to fight with human powers on the earth, a decent respect and justice that requires such a declaration of justice!
We hold with the Constitution of the United States of America, that all men are created equal, and that to secure certain rights, the instituted governments among men, must declare justice on our behalf! For years the Texas Spanish Land Grant heirs have suffered injustice. Whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it and to institute a new Government, laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, for justice. While these evils are sufferable, it is much better to abolish these injustices.
We the Texas Spanish Land Grant Heirs are seeking justice as a result of the Oppressions suffered. We have petitioned in most humble terms, without repeated injury. We, therefore solemnly publish and declare:
The Texas constitutional provision has retrospective effect; the landowner was given complete ownership of the minerals in all lands that passed from the sovereign before the effective date of the Constitution of 1876.
The Texas Supreme Court in 1928, in Greene v. Robinson. Rather than holding the Relinquishment Act unconstitutional, the Court “construed” the Act in a way that would pass constitutional muster. It held that the Act did not relinquish the oil and gas to the landowners; instead, it made the landowners the agent of the State for the leasing of oil and gas rights, and granted to the landowner the right to one-half of all bonuses, royalties and other benefits accruing from those leases.
The 1876 state constitution was an amendment on the first passed in 1866. The legislature was getting ready to give the minerals to the state when someone slipped an amendment that gave the rights to landowners at that time. Those were the children and grandchildren of our land grantee and so we as legal heirs have the right to production from unclaimed Oil and gas wells in our ancestral lands. In 1866 there was no oil and gas discovered so the issue was not that important.
The money from our unclaimed wells has been spent by the state for 33 years instead of putting it in a trust fund. We have not been paid yet, and our names are accounted for in the Texas Comptrollers record keeping.
We now declare this must be made right, all of the monies must be accounted for, for every mineral and oil drilling and site, the monies that are accounted for must be paid out to its rightful owners and decedents (the Texas Spanish land grant heirs). To mandate that State of Texas to release the type 2 mineral billions of dollars in royalties, bonuses, etc. to their rightful Spanish land grant heirs and stop spending our money
We are ready for a legal war, we are ready to re-elect new officials in government that support our rights. Our country has not seen a fight of civil liberties and justice in its history. Soon America will know who we are. We are a revolution, we are a people, united in in one voice. It is time for change, and for justice.

When all is silent, the giants are preparing
Wouldn’t that be a dramatic effect if all of a sudden a giant army raised one loud roaring voice that literally scares the enemy?
In many wars this happens. Each side is preparing for battle, and if you were to walk outside, you would hear the peaceful atmoshere of birds singing, and the wind or sea waves.
Yet in the camp, there is much noise and stirring as the army gets ready for battle. Swords are being sharpened, mothers attending to their children and husbands. The warriors are training and practicing. The foolish by standers are drinking and having a jolly good time. Fear is in the heart of all, yet for the warriors, fear is what drives them to fight. If all could take notice of the warriors.
Fear is actually faith mis-directed. Instead of having faith in our God who will protect and fight with us, the faith is turned toward the outcome. This is why in our case we have some people who lost their faith in anything ever happening.
But there is a women who fights on our behalf who keeps this faith alive and fights. EMF sounds like EMS. She is our Emergency Mediation Fighter and Leader!
Discussion is great, but discusion without action will not get us anywhere. Encouragement is one big thing we need, to continue to pursaude and get our network of Heirs to come together and prepare.
The question we must all ask ourselves is, what am I doing to help prepare for this fight? Are you just leaving it in the hands of your attorney’s ? Or are you getting people ready to fight?
That is why we launched a petition, we are working towards getting over 25,000 at the first phase. We need this to show that we are serious and together! Sure we can gather at a demonstration or arena together to show that we have a force of people. But a petition is much more powerful!
If you haven’t signed or you have family who haven’t done this please click here and sign this.
Next we must prepare , and we need a lot of ammunition! We do not want to interfere with the legal team working on the case but we need to prepare so we have some steps.
