Who are the Senators that think 70% of you, don't know anything
First off, CONGRATULATIONS, nothing, and we mean nothing has affected the Legislature branch of government than you did about immigration this past month. You shut down the phone system for all of the capitol building on Thursday. You emailed, faxed, wrote, and relentlessly phoned your Senators that this amnesty (immigration) plan was horrible. In keeping with our great philosophy of providing you with the facts, consider this a reminder when you vote for these Senators at their next election.

If their name is in RED, some would say they're traitors to you and I. However, the same vote came about on June 28, 2007. With your onslaught of phone calls, look who changed their mind. Makes you wonder if they really got it, or they got a little worried about their re-election status.

Even though they finally got it right this time around, it's still real shady on their part not to vote against it in the first place. Congrats to Alaska, Ohio, and Virginia you changed both of your Senators mind about the vote. We only post this, because when it comes to election time, we don't want to forget, and if 80% of America can rally around an immigration plan, why can't we still SECURE OUR BORDERS SENATORS?
My bookmarks are overflowing.
Both of my Senators, Nelson and Martinez, have shown they don’t listen to their constituents ... they need the boot!
Jeff Sessions for president.
FYI! Ensign (R-NV) heads the NRSC. Glad to see he changed his vote.
All the calls made the difference.
Yep, but like we said on our website, Talk Radio was on point leading the charge before this bill was even on paper. So to be honest, Personally, I have to give credit to both the American People and Talk Radio.
I have come to the conclusion that a concerted, well-coordinated, sustained effort on prosecuting businesses who aid and abet illegal aliens would almost make the fence and deportation activities redundant. Heavy fines and jail terms for hiring illegal aliens would make their jobs dry up - killing their incentive to come here. So, start enforcing this now!
Where you put the YEA in Red. That is a starting point of the 70% and they all need to be replaced
Senator Brownback voted for amnesty before he voted against it!
Now, let's all try to understand something here. If all these calls "made a difference" on defeating this POS Amnesty Bill, then why can't WE do it on other Bills? We now know it work with some of the RINO/MODERATES to understand the grassroot means business. I think this is a shot across the bow of these senators and congressmen.
WE, THE PEOPLE, are the BOSS of you!
I totally agree, some people that stuck out for me was Joe Lieberman (Sean Hannity’s boy) and a Republican presidential candidate (Kansas Brownback). At least Brownback got smart along the way, but “Vote Joe” let us all down.
I tried to look at the immigration bill on Thomas, but it “wasn’t available”. Does anyone have a link to the actual bill?
Loud Dobbs just said on the radio: "Calling illegal aliens 'undocumented workers' is like calling drug dealers 'unlicensed pharmacists.'"
“North Dakota: Conrad (D-ND), Yea Dorgan (D-ND), Nay “
Did the ND people give them oposite instructions?
Both Dems, why cancel each others vote?
Dorgan’s up for election next.
A scare was put into more than one Senator, and yes it should work for other things also. Few would be as dangerous as this bill. I must admit, the bill caught me by surprise like being hit by a truck.
Isn’t that the truth
You answered your own question, I guess I should digged further and seen who voted Nay and were Democrat if they were entering an election season....Things that make you HMMMMM.
Here’s your link to the actual bill, if you can force yourself from vomiting at the lady killer who wrote it, you can find my source for writing the article.
The Congressional recess coming up should afford many of us the opportunity to get some valuable face time with our respective congress critters. Some of these folks will be holding Town Hall Meetings around their states/districts. A call to one of their local offices or a visit to their web sites ought to give you the schedule.
The recent immigration dust-up brought a lot of new folks into the fray over who runs the country. Because the forces of darkness never rest, IT IS VITAL THAT THESE NEW FOLKS NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP. Sadly, most of them will.
I predicted that illegal immigration would be a hot-button issue over 10 years ago when more than 70% of those at Newts meetings where I regularly went to gin up support for the Fair Tax (then called the National Retail Sales Tax) — were mad as hell and beating him up on the illegal situation. While he never has come out directly for the Fair Tax, more than once, Newt coupled the two issues by suggesting that the over 100,000 IRS agents be given a weapon and training and sent to guard the border with Mexico. Newt KNOWS how to couple.
If YOUR critters ARE having meetings and if not during THIS recess, unless their names are Reid, Pelosi, Graham or Schumer, they will almost certainly have them in the run-up to the election please think about attending, taking the mike and telling them what YOU think. Even if THEY fail to heed your words, you just may educate the audience to some new problem. Heck, you may even get a heart-warming round of applause.
If nothing else, its excellent THEATER to watch some of these folks artfully dodge questions, shuck and jive around a tough issue about which they have absolutely NO knowledge, have their overflowing drool-cups changed by one of their flunkies, etc. so TAKE A CARLOAD with you.
See you there???
To me the worst aspect of this near disaster is this:
The bill was so poorly thought out and written that none of the Senators really knew and understood the total content.
They could not have a clear view of what the total impact would be but overall it was clearly against the best interests of the country.
Yet anywhere from 46 to 64 Senators and the President of the USA were prepared to vote it into law.
They had no problem disregarding these facts:
1 - The bill was full of conflicting provisions, half truths, ouright lies
2 - Many of the provisions were so unrealistic that everyone knew the government would not and could not keep its word to implement them
3 - There were a few (very few) somewhat reasonable ammendments that everyone knew would be stripped out before the bill became law
4 - The cost projections were astronomical
5 - There would be very little positive impact on reducing the entry of illegals
Many of the Senators along with the President and some of his cabinet act as if they are in office to persue the agenda of the pro-illegal groups instead of the interests of the republic and the voters who put them in office and pay their salaries.
The Secretary of Homeland Security spent his time lecturing us on the needs of illegal aliens instead of explaining why he isin’t protecting our borders.
We need a total overhaul of the government.
Hey, I love the Fair Tax Plan, it’s the most researched bill ever to be introduced into legislation. You all think people got interested in Immigration, if you all knew only 10% of what the Fair Tax plan does how excited you would all be. Hence a article I written a few months ago.
Which means he has to go. He can't be trusted. He still believes in amnesty and will vote for it if he thinks he can get away with it. The only way to protect our country is to get him out of office.
Personally, I think that applies to every one of them that switched. Nothing but a vote of political expediency.
Oh I agree, Senator “Brokeback” is a douche bag, you watch, he’ll get slammed in the primary, personally, I think he is only a presidential candidate because he knows his “pretty cheeks” won’t survive a primary election in Kansas without this type of exposure.
“, let’s all try to understand something here. If all these calls “made a difference” on defeating this POS Amnesty Bill, then why can’t WE do it on other Bills?
Here’s one for you to chew on. La Raza is the hispanic group pushing to grant amnesty to illegal aliens to acheive their goal of taking control of a portion of the southwest the think belongs to them. did you know there is a bill before Congress that will grant them millions of dollars for their cause? here it is;
H. R. 1999 To authorize appropriations for assistance for the National Council of La Raza and the Raza Development Fund.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
April 23, 2007 Mr. HINOJOSA (for himself and Mr. RENZI) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Financial Services”
Anyone who votes for this bill should be kicked out of office. La Raza(The Race) is a bigoted hate filled organization made up of latinos that want to reconquer the southwest. So if this bill passes congress has taken YOUR money and given it to this dispicable group who wants to take over the southwest.
Here’s some good news for our boy Mel:
“Florida Sen. Mel Martinez After being named chairman of the Republican National Committee giving him a powerful bully pulpit for the party Martinez wasnt able to muster much political muscle in support of immigration reform.
And his backing of the bill has cost him politically back home, according to a just-released InsiderAdvantage poll. According to the poll, Martinezs approval rating in Florida is now at 23 percent, while 47 percent disapprove of his performance. Thirty-one percent said they had no opinion.”
We will remember in 2010.
Brownback Says He Intended to Switch Vote on Immigration (Presdiential Candidate CYA Time)
I’m so glad that we changed Norm Coleman’s mind on this, but he still has RINO leanings.
As for the Fair Tax, I really have to think on this. On the onset, it looks like a good idea, but something about it is eating at me and I haven’t figured it out yet.
Some real pieces of crap on that list.
I hope everyone’s paying close attention and will vote accordingly.
Throw the bums out!
bookmark for later homework!
New Mexico Domenici and Binaman voted yea on26 and ney on 28th.
“Both of my Senators, Nelson and Martinez, have shown they dont listen to their constituents ... they need the boot!”
Yes! They are mine too, and they do need the boot! I signed the petition to re-call Martinez, but guess I am dreaming that it could possibly be done!
Classic--and right on target!
New Jersey: Lautenberg (D-NJ), Yea Menendez (D-NJ), Yea
like any rational sane thinking person has any chance in the great people’s republic of NJ????
the first ~ braindead...the seocnd a hispanic determine to get the rest of the spanish speaking world into the US for more lib/dem votes!!!
I am looking for the actual bill and this link get you nowhere....got a better idea? I am still looking....thanks.
Nah, we need him here.
And Maryland has two that are not bothered about what their constituents think or want.
It looks as though Senators from larger, more urban states were a lot more likely to vote for the bill.
Some of them have a lot of immigrants and illegals living in their states.
Others depend a lot on money from big business.
Also, the larger the population, the less likely a representative is to be called to account.
For some Senators, there's not much of an excuse or explanation, though, except maybe a general insulation from day-to-day realities.
But the recall petition might cause Senator Martinez to worry. he has been caught lying big time. Somebody stated that he is lacking in courage.
I signed the recall petition, too. I’m under no illusion that we’ll actually get him recalled, but if enough disgruntled Floridians sign it, that should give encouragement to any conservative considering a primary challenge against him. So the more signatures, the better.
Problem is it only lets you sign once, and there are two voters in this house who will not support Martinez again!
