I do not know who I am more disillusioned with right now? The Senate, the President or the people, the Senate and the President because I was always raised that their sole job was to work for the American people. At least that is what they told us in the history classes we girls giggle through and guys drew pictures of tanks, maybe had we been actually listening we would have heard when they told us that groups like LARAZA control our country and not the people.
I simply cannot believe it took so long to get the people motivated to call and write these fools, maybe if we had been more motivated and better organized from the beginning maybe we could have stopped this, maybe? I really doubt it, I watched the arguments on the floor for this amendment or that, the 32 trying to find something to kill this bill. A lot of the arguments against this bill had a lot of merit and these people deserve our thanks but I donâ€™t think if they stood on their head necked they would have been able to sway those other 62.
Kennedy and McAmnesty were determined to get LARAZA funding for their campaigns McAmnesty even made sure their name was included in the list of people who supported this bill. I think it was then that it dawned on me what was going on, they were going to pass a bill they knew was destructive to their country out of fear, fear that if they didnâ€™t that ANSWER would put the Mexicans back in the streets and we would be calling them demanding they do something when they have shown repeatedly that they canâ€™t do anything.
The bill that was past yesterday is nothing more than an open borders bill the very one that the illegal immigrants in our streets were demanding. We now have any doubt in our mind how our leaders are going to behave if this nation is under threat from another country. That I suppose is the scariest aspect of all of this that our leaders are showing their yellow bellies at the time we need to see smoke coming from their ears. I am asking those of you who have not been a part a rally or march when one is planned in your area be a part of it. We will be having one on July 1 in Lufkin, Texas at Kiwanis park and we are inviting everyone from across this great land of ours to stand up and tell our leaders our demands for a change.
If we want the respect that the illegal immigrants have gotten from our leaders we have to be able to show them that we will in fact get out in the streets and demand your rights just as well and then if you donâ€™t get what you want you will bring to full force of the vote of the people you are standing with. In short we must scare the people who work for us as much as the illegal immigrants did. I know it did not used to be this way, the leaders listened to the people and they ran the country according to their wishes. Those days are over; the winners now have the loudest voices by the amount of people that they can get in the streets. The world is changing and a lot of it is not for the better, and none of us really want to go stand on a street corner, but we do not want to see our country given away to the highest bidder either.
â€œIf ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.â€ â€“Samuel Adams
