To say I am proud of Conservatives, all over America, who... yesterday... sent a message to the US Senate, and to the US Congress as a whole, would be an understatement!
The phone calls, the emails, the faxes, the letters, from all the angry conservatives to the senators, was so great the Senate telephone system actually crashed! But… they got the message!
Actually, they got several messages from the American people. One, we are watching and listening, two, we have had it with their self-imposed “disconnect” with us, and three, we will not allow them to get away with unresponsive government any longer!
Gone are the days when the legislative branches of the US government could do, pretty much, what they pleased with very little worry, if any, about their constituents back home being aware of what they were doing. Now we have the Internet. We have information at our fingertips… and we have the means to communicate our feelings, our likes and dislikes, and our concern, instantly, with those who govern us.
That is what happened, this week, with The Amnesty Bill. The electorate flexed its muscles and won!
We demanded the government secure the border with Mexico FIRST… before ANYTHING else is done… and then, and only then, will we allow any kind of legislation to overhaul the immigration laws in this country.
Seal the border. Secure it. Stop the hordes slipping across for only God, Himself, knows what, and then we’ll talk about what to do with those already here.
We need the border fenced off… not 300 miles… but all the way from California to the Gulf of Mexico. It CAN be done. So far we have not had the willingness, by our legislators to do it. They STILL don’t want to do it, even after the fiasco and embarrassment of the “Great Slap Down of the Senate” by the American electorate this week! But rest assured, it WILL be done before the American people allow the Congress to squander more of OUR money on patchwork plans and feel-good legislation to grant citizenship, in any way, to those who have broken the law by illegally entering the United States.
We will not stand for Amnesty in any form.
But, we have work to do, still. The Senate is royally PO’ed at Conservative Talk Radio blaming the Conservative talkers for the defeat of that abomination of a bill.
So what will they do? They will do what we have been warning they will do for the past few weeks and months. They are going to try to shut down Conservative Talk Radio with the revival of the so-called Fairness Doctrine and a new Equal Time ruling. It’s coming as surely as night follows day. They are angry with conservatives now as they haven’t been in a very long time… and we can expect a counter attack. In all likelihood it will come by way of a bill to re-instate the Fairness Doctrine.
So, get the e-mails, and the faxes, and the phone calls, and the letters ready. Keep your keyboards hot and your dialing finger ready. We have more work to do.
May I suggest that if you have friends, or acquaintances, who still believe that the voters of the US have no power to influence what goes on in the US government, recount for them what just happened this week with the defeat of the Amnesty Bill by the voters. I can think of no better example of the power we wield when aroused to anger. What we saw this week was a manifestation of the righteous anger of the American citizens. Had the Senators not been so out of touch with their constituents, they would have seen this coming. It simply points up just how out of touch they really are.
With the entire US House of Representatives up for re-election in 2008, we have a lot of clout when they bring up the Fairness Doctrine in the House. Conservatives should gather our strength for that battle which is just peeking over the political horizon.
