Senate Continues to Bypass We-The-People

With yet another indication that the US republic is about to be brought to an end, US lawmakers are doing their best to rapidly push their amnesty for illegals bill through the US Senate. This latest version of the Kennedy-McCain “let ‘em all into the country, we can sort it out later” illegal immigration proposal has been largely hidden from the American people. We know the thing exists but, the 700+ pages of it were worked out secretly and behind closed senate committee doors. The precise details of the bill have not yet been released to we-the-people and are being kept close to the vests of those who are strongly motivated to pass it; before we have the time to see what’s in it and to fully examine the fiscal and cultural crises the bill will bring to the country. However, what we already know about it, via leaks, is that—if passed—it will complete the already begun destruction of US services and place an even more untenable tax burden on US citizens. When the illegals are “legalized”, they will immediately be entitled to virtually all of the same benefits as US citizens including those who waited for years to become legal; citizens who our lawmakers—with their pro-illegals’ stance—are now laughing at and demeaning. These same lawmakers now reward the lawbreakers and punish those who follow US laws.

When passed and signed by the President of the United States, this bill will provide immediate legal status to illegal aliens. This means that US citizens will be forced to subsidize, via increased taxation of US citizens (which no longer includes any representation from elected officials), the former criminal illegals. These former illegals will then be able to feed from the already-almost-bankrupt social security trough. Again, illegals are more important to our federal lawmakers than are US citizens. Then, to add insult to the already injured US citizenry, guess who had virtually unlimited input into this pro-illegals bill and holds the sway of veto power over it? The answer is Latino groups that preach “retaking” the US Southwest for Mexico. Even the liberal Washington Post reported: “After laboring in obscurity for decades, groups such as the National Council of La Raza, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and the National Immigration Forum are virtually being granted veto power over perhaps the biggest domestic issue coming before Congress this year. Organizations that represent what is now the nation's largest minority group are beginning to achieve power commensurate with their numbers.” The voices of the majority of the American people are effectively being ignored, if not silenced, by a Democrat-run Congress and their RINO supplicants. And our elected officials are now only listening to groups like La Raza (“the race”) and MEChA that preach: “For the race—everything. For those outside the race—nothing!” Congress is now only listening to the radical elements of society—not the majority of the American people.

As additional examples of the current trend of bowing and scraping to all that is socially radical, taxpayers are being forced to pay for Muslim foot-washing basins and prayer-rooms—at colleges, universities, airports and other public facilities. Note: This is in direct opposition to the US Supreme Court’s interpretation and ruling that referenced “separation of church and state.” Either this separation does not apply to Islam (there is no exemption stated in the aforementioned ruling) or political-correctness run amuck (even when it means the destruction of our country) now trumps US law. Although separation of church and state still strongly applies to Christianity, it is not being applied to Islam. Question: Doesn’t this not only blatantly defy the law but, overtly discriminate against only one religion—Christianity? Of course it does.

No wonder those entering the US illegally don’t care. Our “leaders” are no longer concerned about following the laws of the land either. Instead, these leaders continue to thwart the will of the American people by passing legislation it has hidden from them and then loudly curse those who disagree with their surreptitious plans. For example, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) disagrees with the current Kennedy-McCain Pro-Illegals Amnesty bill. From the Senate floor, instead of discussing it, the rationality-impaired Senator John McCain (RINO-AZ) shouted epithets at him that included: “F*** you! This is chicken*** stuff! You’ve always been against this bill and you’re just trying to derail it!” But, that’s what liberals of all persuasions do when they cannot debate an issue logically—they shout, curse and/or yell in attempts to shut down their opponents. One can only hope that it will be derailed. But, I doubt it. On this issue and an increasing number of others, Congress and the POTUS are no longer paying any attention to the ones that brought them to the dance. They have found new partners who are increasingly representatives from radicalized groups such as La Raza, MEChA and all other members of the Aztlan movement—and of course radical Islam. These are the ones our congressional “representatives” are listening to and the new masters they are following. Apparently, to all three braches of the US government, we American citizens have reached the end of our run. We’re no longer of any real import to the ones we elected. And, until we take to the streets as have illegal immigrants and their racist supporters, my guess is that Congress will continue to pay little-to-no attention to us. As an almost last ditch effort to stop this tornadic Amnesty bill that threatens to further destroy our communities, you can still call or write the following:

The Senate vote is scheduled for Monday—so you need to act now. At this juncture, our country is being legislated away from us by self-serving, politically ambitious and increasingly anti-democratic politicians. Either we act now and tell our politicians that we will not accept their continuing attempts to remove us from the decision processes for the USA—and back it up with actions—or we will be flying the Mexican flag by the end of the year.
