The Payback Project [inspired by Amnesty Bill]
The Payback Project ^ | John Hawkins

Posted on 06/11/2007 9:25:49 AM PDT by freespirited

If the amnesty bill in the Senate passes, we're going after any Republican Senator up in 2008 who votes for it. Conservatives put these Senators into office and if they won't listen to us, then we will replace them in the primaries with Senators who will.

Hopefully, the Republicans in the Senate will come to their senses and filibuster this bill. But, if they don't, we're going to teach the GOP to respect their base again -- the hard way.

If you would like to help, email hawkins@paybackproject.com.

We've got a primary opponent for Hagel. Top priority now is to find one for Graham.

Amen. The American people will prevail. I voiced this same message to the RNC in DC this a.m. (1-202-863-8500). This message needs to be emailed to each and every GOP member in the Senate and the House. They were elected to represent the American people. The current political “Royalty” have put their quest for power above their country; how despicable and what a disgrace for this nation.

Why "if?" We should go after them just for attempting to pass it.

Not only that but, just as important, notify the state and national GOP that if these Senators (and Representatives) will somehow win the primaries, they is no way they are going to win the general elections. No matter how much they will scare us with Democrats winning big majority in Senate. Point to “lessons” of 2006.

Got to agree there. Any Republican who votes in favor of the illegal-alien amnesty bill should face tough primary oppositon.

I’ve already put my two RINO Senators on notice that I can no longer support them because of their track records on the illegal immigration issue. I’ve seen enough of their actions to know that neither one is no longer worthy of my vote. My time and money goes to whoever has the best chance to unseat them no matter who they are. I’ll be putting my money and time into fielding an independent for the primaries.

I’m tired of having to plead with Cornyn and Hutchinson to do what they should be doing all along without me having to threaten them to do.

Chambliss has two democratic contenders. We need a conservative primary opponent for Chambliss as well.

Chambliss was part of the secret deal making on this sham.

If you want to do something *now*, go to campaign appearances, ask tough questions about immigration which are designed to reveal flaws in the candidates' thinking, and then publicize the responses through Youtube, blogs, forums, etc.

Here are some questions for John Edwards, and note that a citizen recently posted him asking John McCain a question to youtube: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1848012/posts

Ravenel just won State Treasurer last year. Jumping so soon after that might damage him politically. We’ll see.

I called both Isakson’s and Chambliss’ offices this morning, and they are playing dumb. They “don’t know” of the senators are/will be involved in resurrecting the immigration bill.

They simply stuttered when I asked if advice would still be given by racist groups who want to take over America and those who employee illegals.

Meanwhile, here are some sites about dumping Flimsy Graham:

http://lindseygraham.wordpress.com/ This is a gathering place to plan strategy to defeat Graham.

http://www.charlotteconservative.com/ Just for fun. In the middle column is the Lindsey Graham countdown clock. Counts the days, minutes, and seconds until South Carolina voters can hand Flimsy his walking papers.

That is an affront to small-”r” republican government, and, if intemperate hectoring mediocrities like Trent Lott and Lindsay Graham don’t understand that, then their electors should give them a well-deserved lesson.

‘FULL warchest of money from the GOP”

Money alone will not win an election. Just ask Pat Dewine, Senator Mike Dewine’s son. The base in Ohio gave hime the boot, even though he had the money, the DC endorsements and the name.

“Ravenel just won State Treasurer last year. Jumping so soon after that might damage him politically. We’ll see.”

That might have been true before Grahams support of amnesty.

I now believe the folks would more than forgive him if he ran against Lindsey Kennedy Graham.

Amen, you are absolutely correct. Reprehensible traitors—all of the political elitists that support it now or later. Their “in your face” arrogance is reprehensible. Our founding fathers are turning in their graves along with all the American patriots in Arlington. Their thirst for power has no limits except the American people stopping them.

“Mel Martinez will have a FULL warchest of money from the GOP”

Martinez fired all the telephone solicitors last week because few people were contributing...so the RNC is hurting right now

If that keeps up the warchest will be full of moths...

And I dont believe the people in the Republican base are going to forget it a hurry...
