It shouldn’t be a surprise that nearly seven in ten Americans who look at the immigration bill pending in the Senate as another sell-out of America, with that number arguing that we must enforce our borders immediately. It’s also not a surprise that Senate Republicans are helping to support this bill despite the damage it will ultimately do to our nation. Twenty-eight Republicans decided to sell us out and join with the Democrats in bringing the Immigration bill to the Senate for action, and as is ever the case, when you see substantial percentages of the two parties cooperating on anything, you must also know that they are acting in the name of the Washington DC establishment, that cares genuinely for no party but for the non-stop celebration inside the DC beltway, bought and paid-for by we taxpayers. Now, they’re galloping toward a so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bill that threatens to end the United States as you have known it. The worst of it may be that while nearly three in four Americans realize this is a sell-out, and want to secure the border first, there are still one-fourth of Americans who actually think this amnesty plan is a good idea.
Imagine my surprise while talking to an SEIU member who thinks this bill is a boon to his prospects, and is four-square behind the bill, whatever may be in it, because he’s been told by union uppers that it’s important for the union, with the implication that what is good for the union will be good for him. What the fellow doesn’t quite understand is that while this bill will certainly be good for the union bosses, it will be devastating to his own life. They’re being told that most of these legalized illegals will wind up as members of the union, but they do not question the veracity of the claim, or even whether if true, such a thing would be good for existing union members. Instead, they’re given their marching orders, and they’ve been told to support the bill. When twelve million illegals “step out of the shadows,” the first thing they’ll be looking for is legitimate, lawful employment. Who will that hurt? It will hurt every currently-employed person in the country, minus the politicians, who are insulated from market forces. Are union bosses more like working folk, or more like politicians?
In much the same way, the libertarian sect that seems to follow anybody with the last name “Paul” continues to push the notion that this is an idea in favor of the free market. In one sense, that is true, but it is an ideal to be pursued in the long run and not to be imposed by the registering of yeas and nays along with the sweep of a presidential pen. You see, there can be no free market if there is no rule of law, or what would keep the market free? A free market is only possible where there exists a framework of laws that protect the rights and properties of a society’s members. There can be no protection of rights when lawlessness is the only rule, with the government imposing a legalized form of anarchy in place of the rule of law. Without a thorough program in place to assimilate new would-be Americans, how is it expected that they would respect a rule of law in which they have no investment?
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re being shafted on a colossal scale, and every one of these politicians know it. They’ve been bound and determined to shove this down the nation’s throat in a post-election environment for years, and now they have just the right mix of Democrats and Republicans, scoundrels all, to shove this down our throats. The following 28 Republican Senators need never ask for my vote in any election, for any office, ever, and I don’t care who endorses them:
Alexander (R-TN), Ayotte (R-NH), Blunt (R-MO), Burr (R-NC), Chambliss (R-GA), Chiesa (R-NJ), Coats (R-IN), Cochran (R-MS), Collins (R-ME), Corker (R-TN), Cornyn (R-TX), Fischer (R-NE), Flake (R-AZ), Graham (R-SC), Hatch (R-UT), Heller (R-NV), Hoeven (R-ND), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Johnson (R-WI), McConnell (R-KY), Moran (R-KS), Paul (R-KY), Portman (R-OH), Rubio (R-FL), Thune (R-SD), Toomey (R-PA), Wicker (R-MS)
These people are jackals and parasites who have sold out their respective electorates. Don’t tell me how clever Rand Paul is, or how smart is Marco Rubio, or what a solid guy is John Cornyn. (That last worthless weasel is up for re-election in my state next year, and I will vote for the devil himself if that’s what it takes to get Cornyn out of there. This is not the first time he has screwed the country in this fashion, and left in office, it won’t be the last.)
When all of this goes wrong, this same list of weasels, back-stabbers, fakes and flakes will claim that they had been voting with only the best of intentions. No, they aren’t. They’re participating in a gang-rape of the nation, and they’re quite pleased with themselves. People may wonder why I’ve gone off the grid, and there’s no denying my various personal/health issues are the primary drivers, but this bunch – this gang – of America-hating corporatists are the primary reason. They’re going to win if they have to immobilize the nation to have their way with her.
The most galling part may be that the few allies they have in the general populace are primarily the union workers who have been told by their alleged “leaders” that this is good for them, while their union bosses wine and dine at the White House with the President and the very captains of the industries who they tell their rank-and-file they are supposed to hate. Both sides have been sold out by their respective parties, and both to the same cronies.
If we’re to have any chance to stop this, we will need to melt the phone lines, faxes, and in-boxes of every Republican in the House. The Democrats are hopeless. Most of the Republicans are treacherous. We need something we do not now have, and that’s a voice. If we do not find it, and soon, they’re going to break this country for all time by Labor Day, and there will be nothing that we will then do to stop this.
Remember, they have the magic formula all worked out: Get enough Republicans in the Senate to break the filibuster to let the bill come to the floor. Then use the 60 rule to keep out amendments. The bill will go to final passage, and then it’s off to the House, where Boehner will cobble together a gang of Republicans to join with the Democrats to pass a bill more than seventy percent of the American people oppose. After that, it’s a Rose Garden signing ceremony at the White House, and the nation is finished. That’s the procedure. The only way that procedure can be stopped is to make a stand at every House Republican’s office, and even then, they won’t give a holy rip about what we think.
It’s time to end the poetic verbiage and simply state what is: These people, in both parties, are out to wreck the country and wreck it beyond retrieval. There are undoubtedly a few in Congress who genuinely oppose this, but they are so few and so weakened that they afford little hope. On the other hand, as somebody in Las Vegas recently reminded me, there’s always some hope, and some times, that’s all you have to hold. We must push back with all we have or lose the country. Hoping our best efforts will hold this bill back may be all we have left, but let this not deter us in that effort.
