The only way to ensure the trustworthiness of today's lawmakers in both parties is to make them directly accountable to the people. And I do not mean at the ballot box. I do mean physically accountable.
As in drag-them-out-of-their-houses-and-throw-them-in-the-klink accountable.
But since that can never happen its best to assume that there will be no law made we can trust them to enforce. They are liars and opportunists - almost every one.
How nice it would be if the Republican Base had some political representation in DC.....
Seems Boner & McSurrender are focused like a laser on snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. ObamaCare should be the focus as it is a winner. For example, my immigrant bro-in-law got his $235/month health insurance canceld by Obama. The Obama equivalent is $409/month.
Amnesty is a loser for the Repubs. You know if it would help the Repubs, the Dems would be fighting it tooth and nail...and probably have already laid mine fields, electric fences and the TSA along the Border.
My (legal) immigrant family members resent any Amnestry (or freebies) for illegals.
Can only hope Boner and McSurrender are getting well paid to betray the Repub Party Base.
This only encourages people to come to the USA and have children born here INTO CITIZENSHIP for a better life for their children.
Essentially you are going to have a “skip” generation but it will not matter with the rampant voter fraud.
Every proposed requirement in that article is window dressing meant to pacify voters then be ignored once the bill is passed. The so called triggers will be watered down or eliminated in the conference committee. The Senate will have a say in the bill and their version won’t look at all like the House version.
ANYTHING they send to the Senate will be chopped up and the joint committee will come out with the Gang of 8’s plan.
As Rush Limbaugh warned yesterday: If the House passes amnesty this year, the GOP will lose the House.
Even Rush wondered why the GOPelites are so bent on committing mass political party suicide. The only possible answer seemed to be that the old timers who will be retiring soon already have high-paying gigs lined up with many of those represented by the Chamber of Commerce, etc. — if they can get amnesty passed.
More evidence that we need to pour it on to our reps to make them understand that we are watching their every move and know which votes count and which are just for show.
Just sent to our Congressman:
We DO NOT WANT the GOP to waste any time on crafting some immigration legislation. We expect to see work on repealing 0bamacare, and budget cutting, deficit reduction, the whole belt-tightening exercise.
There is nothing to be gained, even from a political perspective, to work with the administration and/or Senate on agreeing to easing of immigration law. CLOSE THE BORDERS. DEPORT THE ILLEGALS. There are not enough jobs, as it is, for Americans. We cannot afford more social programs, more bureaucracy, any more resources going toward the “immigration” bleeding hearts causes.
Please vote against any legislation that is intended to be “immigration reform”.
Does anyone know why it’s all of a sudden so important to do anything about immigration, specifically relating to illegals from Mexico?
We did not want Obamacare, and you Neo-Democrat RINOs gave it to us anyway, and we are the worse for it.
We DO want yall to enforce existing Federal Border Laws.
WE DO NOT WANT IMMIGRATION REFORM ! Yall gave us that in 1986, and we are the worse for it!
Now yall say that we need to cave in this year to Obama on Immigration Reform. Why this perversion to betray us!?
This is the same GEE OH PEE pablum that you Neo-Democrat RINOs have been always been feeding to the gullible, low information voters.
McCain, McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan are always waiting for massive support from the Public before they even consider doing a pitched battle with the enemy.
The enemy is yall caving in to Obama! Just enforce existing Border Laws!
Yall go on TV to publicly beat yalls chests, and then reach across the aisle to yalls good friends in order to get something done.
You Neo-Democrat RINOs will never lead, will always wait for a groundswell of Public discontent before risking incurring the wrath of their most dreaded enemy: The Leftstream Media.
Note to all the Congressional RINO leaders: We gave yall in 2010 what yall said yall were waiting for - - - - The Massive TEA Party Rebellion, and yall fought us every step of the way, and are fighting us now more than ever!
We gave yall the support that yall asked for and yall betrayed us!
Betray us once, shame on you. Betray us twice, shame on us!
LEAD, OR GET OUT OF OUR WAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW, we have long memories, and just so yall know, RINO SEASON IS NOW OPEN AND THERE ARE NO BAG LIMITS !
There is that word again, like nails on a chalkboard.
Nice to confirm where the GOP-e is taking us.
HOW ABOUT BLUE SLIPPING IT?
The Rats have to laughing their asses off. They are staring into the abyss of an epic beat down in November, and the GOP is going to save them by doing THE ONE THING guaranteed to infuriate the base and make them stay home.
You want enforcement? Then allow state and private prosecutions of offender.
There's only one answer. The invaders self-deport, or they're never allowed in the US again. Unfair competition is ended with tariffs. Anyone who abets them with jobs or providing government services gets fined and given a criminal record. Let the free marketplace sort out matching US citizens with employment opportunities.
Boehner, Cantor and Ryan do not represent us. They represent those trying to impoverish and destroy us.
They are the enemy.
How many amnesties do we have to have before the immigration laws are enforced ??
Sample Letter for US Representatives:
Dear Honorable US Representative ...
Sir, I am extremely upset with this latest sham amnesty immigration proposals the US House of Representatives is currently considering.
Words cannot express my anger at the utter foolishness of these proposals. Rewarding criminal behavior encourages more criminal behavior. People cannot begin their careers in America by breaking the law. Further, it hurts minimum wage American workers by causing them to compete with millions of foreign workers. I am dismayed at those in Congress who lack the understanding of this critical issue to our nation.
I like most Americans are in favor of legal immigration for those who are willing to learn our language, culture, and invest the time and money required to become a U.S. citizen - but not for those who willfully break on our laws, spit on our country, demand benefits, and are not willing to go through proper channels to become an American citizen.
What is the solution? It won’t be easy because we didn’t get into this situation overnight. I believe we need to do the following immediately:
1) Secure our borders
2) Enforce existing law
3) Not allow any amnesty provisions of any kind
4) Improve our visa system
5) Prosecute and fine those businesses which knowingly employ illegal workers
6) Give law enforcement officials the necessary resources and authority to combat illegal immigration
7) Deport illegal aliens violating the law after being fingerprinted, photographed, iris scanned, charged with a felony, and their information placed in a national database.
8) Send a bill for deportation/prison costs to the embassy of the illegal immigrants national origin.
9) 2nd time and thereafter repeat offenses by illegal aliens should be sent to work prison camps for a maximum of 6 months - building the southern fence/wall.
10) Seize and liquidate all assets from illegal aliens and use the proceeds for our military and local law enforcement.
11) Must not give illegal immigrants government welfare benefits of any kind, including Social Security
12) Designate English as our national language
13) Change the 14th Amendment regarding birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants
14) Mandatory proof of citizenship for voting
15) Mandatory proof of legal status for DL or ANY government issued ID or benefits card
16) Put pressure on the Mexican government and other nations to reduce illegal immigration to America.
17) Encourage only legal immigration and citizenship to for those wanting to become Americans.
These ENFORCED changes would strengthen America greatly.
Please consider voting against any illegal immigration amnesty bills should they come before the full House floor.
Sincerely and respectfully,
What will the very hated, and self-servingly EXEMPT
treasonous Congress decide this time?
