I think those of us who really care about this country need to start a tag-team sleep effort so nothing gets by in the dark of night.
Did you know that the House of Representatives voted today, Thursday, April 29, 2010 – in favor of a 2-step ballot measure for Puerto Rico to decide if its residents want to change their current relationship with the United States? Read more about it here.
The vote by the way, was 223-169 with Louise Slaughter, D-NY voting present -a trick our own President used often in his short career as a US Congressman so he would not later have to defend any unpopular votes.
Now understand that Puerto Rico has had the opportunity put to them 3 times in the past, “Do you want to become the 51st State?” and voted it down every time. So why the big push now? I’ll tell you what I think.
Those in favor of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (code for amnesty and open borders) figure why not throw another 4 million Hispanics in the mix to really get racial tensions roiling. The Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer version already in the works would give access to welfare and government benefits and citizenship to all who claim they were in the United States at the time of enactment of this proposal and including family members eligible for citizenship would be 17-22 million.
After all if you don’t think Arizona has a right to do what the federal government refused to do, that is, enforce the laws already on the books, then you are obviously a racist. Never mind that Phoenix is kidnap capital of the United States and that the drug cartels are encroaching further and further inside US territory everyday, and the all public services are stretched beyond their limit, and hospital and ERs operate at huge deficits, the public schools are beyond broke and on and on. All of these factors are the result of roughly 460,000 illegal immigrants in Arizona.
Like it or not Arizona had to take steps to protect its citizens and institutions where the federal government has utterly failed to do so. I’d love to see some of Arizona’s neighboring states pass the same sort of serious, we’re not gonna take it any more kinda laws to wake a few people up. And I think this Puerto Rican vote thing is to counter it. You will see and more on this issue because make no mistake, whichever side wins this humongous voting block will be in power forever.
So you best be taking me serious when I say we need a tag-team on duty at all times to make sure these things don’t keep happening in the middle of the night, much less in broad damn daylight!
