Skip to comments.The best way to stop Shamnesty [Vanity]
Posted on 05/19/2007 12:09:47 PM PDT by EternalVigilance
Do you want to stop shamnesty dead in its tracks?
Don't let up on Congressmen and Senators, one bit.
But, aim additional political fire at GOP and Democrat party officials, at every level.
Precinct chairmen, County Chairmen, State Central Committee members, State Chairmen and Co-Chairmen, your state's Republican National Committee members, the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee. Repeat with the Democrats as needed.
A simple google search will give you the email addresses, fax numbers, and telephone numbers of all of these movers and shakers.
You may not have access to our elected officials, but they do.
I called every republican senator and left a terse message. I stated that if this bill passes I would NEVER vote republican again and vote third party, Constitution party. I’ve been saying for the past couple of years that this two party system is not listening to the American public. I wonder how all the Bush lic*ers feel about GW now? GW has sold us out for his proposed “North American Alliance”. Americans will be the big losers.
May I suggest contacting them in this order:
Phone calls are much, much more effective than anything else. One phone call is worth 20 faxes or at least 100 e-mails.
My two Senators are Kohl and Feingold, but they've been hearing it from Wisconsinites too. Keep the phone calls & letters going. Write traditional letters instead of emails.
CALL! CALL! CALL! CALL! AND KEEP CALLING TILL THE LINES FRY!
WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! WRITE! TILL YOU RUN OUT OF INK IN YOUR PEN!
Bombard the Democrats as well, especially the ones that ran on an anti immigration plank and the ones in marginal districts who could be vulnerable. keep pounding on them.
“Write traditional letters instead of emails.”
It’s really too late for letters, unless you Fax them, or send them express mail (not priority mail).
This bill will be a Hillary Perot vote.
It amazes me that these pols so consistently misread what the majority of the public really wants. Then they mis-state what we want, then they act based on what they want.
A useful link for folks to track down their party officials:
Paging conservative billionares with a God complex. Please run as a third party candidate in 2008. As the republican presidential field stands now, Hillary wins. and I think easily. Ohio, Missouri, Virgina, Montana went commie blue in 2004. It’ll happen again in ‘08, unless a real conservative, well-funded, gets on the attack.
We might as well get used to the idea now, and go shoot ourselves.
Shamnesty must come from the great state of Massizona, just like that presidential candidate, Senator Edward John McCainedy. You know him, he’s the guy who wants to give shamnesty to over 12 million fugitives.
I just got off the phone with the state Republican party looking for a donation. Nice, polite young lady...I was civil too, but I must admit my outrage at this treasonous bill and my refusal to give any support to the party because of it, was made quite clear to her. I feel sorry for the young volunteers who must be feeling the wrath of many previously consistent Republican supporters.
Sounds great!...but, I gotta tell you, the young lady was no “volunteer.” :-)
Where is the black leadership in all this?
Do blacks not realize that, demographically speaking, this deal will eventually force them to become race #3, behind Hispanics? That they will be undercut from now on for low-paying, blue-collar jobs by this new “instant minority”?
Blacks - and their so-called leaders - should be storming the offices of every Democrat for this monumental sellout! They loyally vote Dem every election for this??!
Thanks for the link. We need to apply pressure constantly until this thing is defeated. Call now, and tomorrow, and tomorrow. If we let up, they will think the anger was just a flash in the pan. They need to know that this is a make or break moment for the Republican party.
There are some black leaders who have actually led on this issue. Alan Keyes for one. Also, a large percentage of the Los Angeles-area Minutemen are black, Asian, and Hispanic.
I’m all for making them feel uncomfortable. In fact I was musing at the fact that I have never seen an anti-ILLEGAL immigration bumper sticker, magnet, or sign anywhere. I think people are “afraid” to do this. I mean it’s not exactly PC. But, why don’t we, the people, do something? Anyone have any ideas?
No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other." - Matthew 6:24
Just ordered 500 white bumper stickers with big, black letters that say “NO AMNESTY.”
My favorite is:
Not Gun Control
But, definitely, yours is the one that is on point right now.
I am having all the windows on our house replaced AND a new roof, courtesy of a hailstorm. I told both companies I will not tolerate illegals on my property.
Now, if this horror is beaten, how do we start fighting back? Is there anything we can do about voter fraud? Are we allowed to get the lists and search for deceased voters?
Missouri did not go commie blue. The electoral votes went to Bush, and we have a Republican Governor, and my state and national senator is Republican.
Anyway, the expression is commie red and it used to designate the Democrats. It was too close to the truth, so the MSM decided to flip flop the colors.
The pols think the people have no power in this matter, but they are wrong.
It is about time to invoke jury nullification on the nest of issues around immigration.
That means you never convict anyone of any crime against an illegal (or "amnestied") immigrant. And you never acquit any illegal (etc) of anything. The same goes for elected politicians. They are all guilty and no one who wrongs them ever is.
They want contempt for law, give them contempt for law. They want to exercise every role they have in our political system for their exclusive policy desires, ignoring the law, give them the same.
Good demonstration of what many of us have been saying for years: The politicians’ utter lack of respect for the rule of law will lead to a further breakdown of the rule of law.
I meant 2006. Talent lost to Micheal J. Fox’s puppet. Ohio, Virginia, Montana are all commie blue now.
Pro secure border politicians should run in both the rep and dem primaries. I believe the rank of file democrats feel almost as strongly about this matter as republicans. Can you imagine the success we could have if pro secure border candidates are running in both parties. The leftist elite and the big business elite would have a hissy fit.
Add in change your voter registration to independant first thing Monday morning. Take your old registration card and deliver it to your local GOP rep and tell him/her “Never again”
Where did you order them?
Unfortunately, very true. Seriously, from my last post, I think we could passively cause some attention, if we started to put yard signs in our yards, with something as simple as “Enforce our Immigration Laws”. And you know how we Americans are, one person does it, pretty soon the whole neighborhood is on the bandwagon.
B T T T
No Mas Illegals
I think a cadence can be made from your small sign, just like we use to sing in basic training as we marched or double timed. Thanks for thinking it up.
Why is your post ok while mine gets pulled?
Is now the time to impeach Bush?
President Bush’s astonishing lack of interest protecting and securing America’s border seemed to have finally pushed conservatives and regular Americans into contemplating what was previously unthinkable: impeachment. The cause of this shift was his support for the recently passed Immigration Reform bill, which is basically granting amnesty to the 12 million or so illegal immigrants in the US.
Make no mistake, the Republican politicians who have helped pass this bill did so despite overwhelming opposition from rank-and-file Americans. Since the vast majority of illegal immigrants who will obtain their American citizenship will be voting for the Democratic Party for the foreseeable future; it now becomes highly unlikely the Republicans will regain power for at least a generation to come.
As a Canadian who intends on immigrating to the United States legally in a few years; I find it distasteful I will have to spend years and thousands of dollars paying fees and following the requirements of the laws before obtaining my citizenship while someone who breaks the law is moved to the front of the line.
I love the United States and think it is the greatest force for good among all nations in history. Never in history has a nation done so much for the benefit of others - especially its enemies. And yet I am puzzled as to why so many Americans despise your country when there is no other nation anywhere in history that has been better and more decent.
I personally like and respect President Bush but am dismayed that he seems unwilling to enforce your laws securing your borders despite it’s a constitutional requirement. Is the interests of big business for cheap labor more important than technological innovation and the security of your citizens?
Somebody at townhall.com.. I think.. said Mitch McConnell can use procedurals to shut this down for a year or more.
Put it off until presidential candidates have to take a stand on it.
They know exactly what we want. They just don’t care.
Although I've contacted pols mostly by e-mail, I suspect you're right about this. I wonder what your exact reasoning is, though - do you think phone calls have more of a visceral impact?
I called my congressman, Joe Knollenberg, on Friday (he is “opposed to the amnesty provisions”), and e-mailed Senator Deborah Stab-me-now, for what good that will do.
And the “GOOD GUYS” need our encouragement as well.
