ALIEN BILL DEFIES PUBLIC WILL (Lonsberry)
boblonsberry.com ^ | 06/18/07 | Bob Lonsberry

Posted on 06/18/2007 6:28:34 AM PDT by shortstop

It's not even about illegal aliens anymore. It's about the relationship between the government and the people.

It's about who wears the pants in the family.

And right now, the president and a whole bunch of others are confused about that. See, they think they're in charge. They think it's their country.

They think they're going to tell us what to do.

Well, they've got another think coming. This time they've got a fight on their hands.

The background is illegal immigration and the years of treasonously incompetent government which have allowed it to turn into the biggest threat to our country and its future. It takes some doing for an issue to rival militant Islam as a danger to the United States, but illegal immigration does.

And that is completely the fault of the federal government. Stretching back to the late 1980s, and accelerating to light speed under George W. Bush and the Republican Congress, government negligence turned a blind eye to border security and the flood of illegal aliens into the country. Instead of dealing with the problem, the government facilitated it. Instead of being rounded up and deported, illegal aliens were guaranteed an ever-larger pool of government services.

The United States became Mexico's welfare and medical system and the federal government did absolutely nothing to protect the interests or territorial integrity of the nation. As cultural dilution and antagonism became rampant, the government was uncaring and impotent. It was national suicide by governmental neglect.

American wages were suppressed, American taxes were raided, American communities were endangered, American values were suppressed, American culture was spat upon. Entire communities were lost to illegal newcomers who were invaders, not immigrants. A centuries-old American model of immigration was thrown out for a divisive new pattern which has already effectively lost the United States sovereignty over portions of its own territory.

We face cultural and financial bankruptcy because the president and Congress failed to uphold their oaths of office. They have ignored the rule of law by refusing to enforce the written law. We have a border, we have immigration laws, and the federal government has ignored them both.

And only after years of complaint and rising public upset did the government begin to do anything. But even then it was mostly manipulation for political gain. It has been a scripted dance in which the people have demanded and the politicians have manipulated and in the end they get our dollars and our votes and we get the back of their hand. And the illegal immigration problem festers into malignancy while they twiddle their thumbs.

Now there is a bill.

Now, they tell us, is the time to act. And their bill is the only thing that can be acted upon. Negotiated in secret, amended in secret, demanded in public. Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up. It's time to pull the wool over our eyes and they're impatient, afraid that delay will lead to scrutiny and defeat.

In the name of helping us, they are about to kill us.

And a tiny group of senators, in league with the president, have agreed to ramrod this through. And to defuse the nation's roaring disapproval they are taking a tone of authority and power their offices do not provide them.

The president who is sure one more of his stammering speeches will convince the nation to change its mind. The Democrat senator who is essentially calling the American people racists. The Republican senator who is going to “do something” about talk radio, the only place political correctness and government intimidation have not yet completely choked out the voice of the people. All are miffed that the people have not rolled over and obediently accepted the superior enlightenment of the Washington fat cats.

And that's what brings us to today's fight. Not just to stop an immigration bill that is poison to our national interests, but to knock down the politicians whose arrogance has presumed they could cram down the throats of average Americans a piece of legislation that every measurement of public sentiment shows they don't want.

They said “Yes,” we said “No,” now they have raised their voices and furrowed their brows and pointed their fingers and said “Yes” again. It's as if they are the masters and we are the servants and they have reminded us to know our place.

Well, the fact is we do know our place.

We are at the top of the political food chain. We are the people the Preamble is talking about. We are the United States of America – they aren't. It is supposed to be government for, of and by the people, not imposed on the people.

The job of every member of Congress is to represent the wishes of the people of his state or district. Period. It is not to impose a will, or coerce an opinion, it is to do what the people want.

And the people don't want this immigration bill.

Not by a damn sight.

And the president and Congress who do not honor that wish have don't need a lesson just in immigration policy, they need a lesson in American democracy.

And they are about to get it.

Secure the border. Make it impenetrable. Shut off the influx of illegal aliens. Begin cleaning up the mess in our schools, jails, hospitals and streets caused by illegal aliens. Actively seek and deport illegal aliens and their families, particularly those involved with welfare and crime. Change the 14th Amendment to get rid of anchor babies. Passionately promote a national program of culture and language education and assimilation.

Then, after a couple of years, talk about legalization and pathways.

But secure the border first and foremost.

And actively take down every candidate and party that pushes forward this asinine immigration bill.

Lonsberry has said what I feel. We have to start getting rid of politicians who are not looking out for America. This is no longer the America my parents knew. In Florida we can start by unloading our Senators, Martinez and Nelson. I will campaign actively for Adam Putnam if he chooses to run for the Senate. No more illegal immigrants!

The panel on Bulls and Bears was beating up on a woman from Mothers Against Illegal Aliens. Then I realized that one of the panelist, John Bradshaw Layfield is JBL from Smackdown. I sent FOX an e-mail telling them I now consider Bulls and Bears to be fake too.

I agree! I have been writing and calling Martinex and Nelson almost every day on this issue. Will say, I did receive one standard reply from Nelson. Nothing from Martinez. I will do everything I can to support anyone who runs against them when their seats come up.

What a superb article. Amazingly, it reads as though I wrote it myself. That is to say, it couldn't have expressed my views of the whole issue better than if I had written it.

I'm ready to march to Washington and run around and cause chaos! Just calling and faxing isn't giving me "satisfaction" anymore.

The imperial Senate, Congress and President are about to see the chickens come home to roost and they are too arrogant to see the signs.

Although it is about immigration, it is also about all the garbage they cram down our throats every session. The sleeping giant is not the American government, but the American people, and the elected “representatives” cram-down of this unpopular bill is the issue that is waking a long sleeping populace.

Their arrogance is their downfall.

Wrong. The fight's over and we lost. The issue will be up before Congress again before the week is out, and this time the pro-globalist, pro-big business sector of Congress, which is most of it, will come out on top.

The big money contributors in the agriculture, construction, retail, and other Chamber of Commerce businesses will have their way on this issue no matter what we the voters want. The pols know they can ignore us and still get 98% or more of us to vote for them along party lines next year just as we did last time around.

AFAIC this is the defining issue for my Senators and Cogressman. If any one of them votes against my interests in the matter I will not vote for him again no matter what else he has done that I may favor or what his party affiliation is. (It's Repub for all 3)

Roger that. If the Republicans think they did poorly in 2006, wait until they see what happens in 2008. I held my nose in 2006, but no way will I do it again in 2008.

I guess a President Hillary is what it's going to take to get some real Republicans back into the game.

I taught my 12 year-old daughter that this country was an experiment - something new - that the Founders conceived of a government where the people were sovereign and not the other way around.

I bet she has a better grasp of the way this country is supposed to work than her elected representatives.

I agree. It's torch and pitchfork time. I want to get in someones face and tell them "We just don't believe you any more!". The only problem with me doing that is that both of my senators (Alabama) are against the bill.

If someone will put together a big national rally to show the politicians we mean business I'll travel to DC.

American wages were suppressed, ...
Here is one thing that I find most puzzling. Wages of US citizens are set at a certain legal level by minimum wage standards. The construction and some services like hotels and restaurants can avoid paying minimum wages by hiring illegals. The conundrum is that this is winked at by the entire system. Wage earners are displaced by illegals who, since they are afraid of losing their jobs by deportation, won't raise a fuss about the minimum wages. So how does increasing the minimum wage level help anybody but the guys who are willing work for less? So the feel good legislation meant to help the poor and the down trodden ends up helping Jose and Pedro from Oaxaca. Joe Sixpack can't work on a drywall crew anymore because the contractor refuses to hire anybody who will make a fuss to the Fair Labor Relations Board. Americans would work in the restaurant, construction labor, janitors, etc. if they could get hired. When politicans imply that these jobs are beneath the dignity of American workers they are disingenuous.

“It may be time for a second American revolution.”

Problem is voting these SOB’s out of office is like closing the barn door after the horse got out (or mule got in, in this case). They’re trying to shove this shamisty bill down our throats before the next election cycle. I predict all hell breaking loose, on both sides of the issue.

Gordon Smith, has, amazingly, got right with this.

Smith is one with his finger in the wind. He will do the right thing only when forced to. In 2000 he was totally against the farmers who had their water cut off in Klamath Falls, Or. By the time he had a few 'town hall' meetings with thousands of angry constituents informing he he was going to lose his job, he got on board...literally. He and Greg Walden begged a ride on Air Force one to Portland, flew over Klamath Lake and showed Bush the problem and begged him to act.

Yeah. If the so called representatives really cared about the American citizen and this nation’s security, they wouldn’t be talking about bring this bill back. Just to bring this bill up for amendments, cloture, and a vote, is an insult.

The problem is that there is an unholy alliance now between the socialists and corporations. The business’s want to socialize their costs, the politician’s want to get gobs of campaign money without bothering with the little guy. A marriage of convenience that screws the rest of us, and we get to pay for it all too!!! Talk about gravy.

The US corporations and the ruling elites think that we should become their slaves and pay for this cozy deal. And marching is not going to stop this, and neither are phone calls.

I have a relative who has worked at A Well Known Buffet type Restaurant in Los Angeles who could not get anything more than minimal hours because of the Illegals who worked there.

They worked off the clock to benefit the management. They did NOT follow sanitary measures. This relative was told that she needed to learn Spanish, as everyone else on the crew spoke it.
