Is Texas being “California-ized”?

Dear Governor-Elect Abbott,

Many people of Texas do not want to be ‘California-ized’ because of high-speed rail, either.  And I agree with you, “few things are more important in Texas than private property rights.”  Allowing a private company to utilize the governmental authority of eminent domain to reduce its cost is essentially a taxpayer subsidy and tramples property owner rights.
