Immigration Bill: Why Do Congressmen Sell Us Out?

Keep the pressure up!
by Charles Coughlin
Many ordinary Americans are shocked by the willingness of the Senate to sell out the American people and to give US citizenship to 20 million illegal alien Latinos. Don’t these Senators live in the United States? Aren’t they worried that their children and grandchildren will grow up in an America, which has been turned into a Third World country?? It’s bad enough that many of these Senators voted for NAFTA and GATT twelve years ago. Patriotic heroes like Ross Perot warned that NAFTA and GATT would eliminate millions of good-paying manufacturing jobs. Unfortunately, the treason steam-roller had considerable momentum and the Internet was too small back then to play a significant role. The “Treason Treaties” were passed despite the opposition of over 80 percent of the American people.
There is a hierarchy of things that motivate our Congressmen. In order of importance, these things are:
1).Love of power (Many stay in office until they die of old age.)
2).Fear of the Israeli Lobby (Many politicians secretly hate the neocons, but they’ll vote for wars under AIPAC pressure)
3).Selling out to big business (This is where the average Congressman gets the money to run for office.)
4).Last of all –ordinary Americans: (Congressmen only do something for us after appeasing the Israelis and big business. The more skillful Congressmen get big Defense contracts for their districts to keep unemployment down so they get reelected.)
This hierarchy is why it is so difficult to get Congress to do the right thing. The Israeli Lobby gave the green light for the war on Iraq and they want a war on Iran too. The rational thing to do in Iraq is to cut our losses and pull our troops out immediately. Unfortunately the Israelis want us occupying Iraq forever. It should be none of our business who runs Iraq, but because of the Israeli Lobby, we will be occupying Iraq for a long, long time.
One of the “tricks” that our politicians use against us is the bi-partisan sell out. Both political parties sold us out on NAFTA and GATT. Both political parties voted to give the dim-witted George W. Bush ultimate authority to make the decision to go to war against Iraq. The effort to give citizenship to 20 million illegals is also a bi-partisan sell out. A significant number of Republicans in the Senate have already voted to keep amnesty in the Immigration Bill and to block any filibusters. The Republican President George W. Bush is pressuring Senators and House Reps to vote for the amnesty.
There are two things working in our favor this time which may save us from disaster. The Internet is a significant force in politics today. Hundreds of web sites are encouraging ordinary Americans to call their Senators and Reps and to tell them that supporting amnesty will guarantee that they get voted out of office in the next election. The second thing is that there is a large anti-amnesty contingent in the House of Representatives. The House voted to make illegal aliens felons only a year ago. The 2006 election may have changed a few dozen seats in the House, but freshmen Representatives are more likely to represent the people, rather than special interests.
There is one other thing working in our favor. Some House Reps are willing to vote against amnesty because this is the right thing to do. No amount of special interest money can convince these men to turn America into northern Mexico. Unfortunately these men don’t make up a majority of the House so we will have to pressure the other Congressmen with phone calls, faxes and e-mails.
All I can say is the fight is up to us. We need to e-mail our friends about this bill and tell them to call their Congressmen. We need to keep contacting our Congressmen every day. We should start calling up conservative talk show hosts about the Immigration Bill. If they won’t talk about it, we should ask them why?
