Selling out?
Written by John

It is very hard for me to even believe this is happening, but President Bush and a faction among the Republican party seem to be selling out.

I heard clips of the speech that our President gave yesterday, and the sound of it - of the pandering to the criminal invaders (Illegal Aliens) that he did in that speech sickened me.

Those of you who know me understand that I'm not a "Republican" although that has been most often how I cast my vote.  I am first and foremost a fiscal conservative, and a believer in the principals that the framers of the Constitution of these United States of America put forth. 

In fact, the elitist Republicans in our national Senate have me so taken aback that I've started a review of some of the alternative political parties - but that will be saved for another posting. 

The first and foremost duty of the office of the President is to defend the Constitution and the laws of the land.

Article II of the Constitution, section three includes the words: " he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" .  And yet, he wishes to have the congress ignore the fact that 12 million people have entered the country, in full violation of these Laws, and he wishes to grant them Amnesty.

Yes, Article II section 2 does say "and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United State", so I suppose that if he wanted to, he could just by carte blanche grant each and every one of these criminals the amnesty he so strongly believes that they deserve.

The President has become completely disconnected.  He believes that he can hold to the Republican base by pandering to some with the proposal of a "marriage amendment".  He's wrong.  The small but vocal minority who would like to legislate who can marry whom and what can go on in your bedroom are not the most significant part of the base he's loosing. He's selling out the broader conservative core.  Those of us who believe in hard work, liberty, and fiscal conservatism.

And the Senate.  What are they smoking??

While what the Senate bill proposes would change the laws to make these illegal immigrants "legal", it is my opinion that to pass this bill at all would be tantamount to treason.  Yes, I said treason.

You see, treason is defined as "waging war on" or "consorting with the enemies of" the United States.  To propose diluting the voting pool by granting citizenship to 12 million more voters is, in my opinion, waging war on the good citizens of the united states.  To propose laws that would legitimize these law breakers (those who refuse to obey our laws, steal from the Treasury (by defrauding the government for the purpose of benefits due only to citizens such as social security are indeed enemies of the United States), must be "consorting with"...

Yet the political elite in Washington believe they're above it all.  The air up there must be very rarefied, because what they're trying to sell up there does not play well down here in the streets of America. 

At least the Honorable Senators Isakson and Chambliss, both from my home state of Georgia, saw fit to vote against this travesty of a bill.

I urge every one of you who reads this to get out there, call your Senators.  Call your Representatives.  Tell them that you won't allow them to sell out our great nation!
