Barack Hussein Obama promised America he would “fundamentally transform” America back in 2008. Was it the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare? Was it new environmental regulations on the coal industry? Was it increased taxes? Was it……….fill in the blank!
Open borders can have different meanings. The Southern border with Mexico is an open border based on the flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico, South America, China and who knows where else.
The federal government is complicit in the illegal immigration fiasco not by ignoring and not enforcing the immigration laws already on the books but by using agencies to do the dirty work Obama plans on doing after the mid-term elections by Executive Amnesty.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Yes, an open door policy slapping the law right in the face. This is merely the tip of the illegal immigration iceberg. The agency is procuring a printer that can handle able to handle a “surge” of 9 million green cards “to support possible future immigration-reform initiative requirements.”
In an ordinary year approximately 1 million green cards are issued through appropriate channels, however, a “surge” of 9 million in one year can extend out to 34 million over the life of a contract for work permits. This would be a 10-percent increase in the total American population. This is one more ploy by Obama and his Marxist ilk to increase the Democrat voting base. A permanent class of voter beholden to the whims of the Leftists who now own the Democrat Party.
The economics of this fiasco is typically not discussed but with the Left proposing a $15 an hour minimum wage available jobs will become unavailable as they diminish. The “workers” will end up receiving benefits for healthcare, schooling for their children, welfare payments, food stamps all paid for by citizens who pay taxes and further decreasing the pool of available jobs for those out of work and still seeking employment.
A whopping 74% of American citizens want this immigration by fiat to stop. The Obama administration could care less, they intend to steamroll immigration “reform” over the populace and let the chips fall where they may. This has been, and will continue to be a disaster of enormous negative consequence to the United States and we know it today.
A Republican Senate majority for the next two years will not stop this immigration of illegals. The GOP establishment is feckless and for the most part is all in for Obama’s immigration reform as written in the Senate “Gang of 8″ bill supported by Marco Rubio (R-FL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John McCain (R-AZ) who all participated in writing and approving this amnesty of illegals legislation. Given the opportunity the coward Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH) would gladly bring it to the floor for a vote and may do so if he receives a super-majority after the November election.
So called Tea Party candidates from 2010 have proved to be intimidated for the most part and judging by their voting records have towed the establishment line being bought out with assignments on committees. The word is already out, continue to fight the establishment in the House and you will suffer the consequences.
Washington DC is broken. The political class doesn’t care beyond their next election, their donor base, their lobbying base and how they can grow their power and stay in power. In fact, the political class in DC like their jobs so much many no longer take up a residence in the States they presumably represent.
We have a $17+trillion debt in the United States that is growing daily, legions of laws are being made by unelected bureaucrats, and enemies are flourishing under our inconsistent, weak-kneed foreign policy. If the US continues on its present course, “We the People” are in danger of becoming a quaint relic of a bygone era.. It is time for more than just a change of personnel in Washington DC.
We should be thankful however, the American Founding Fathers’ were aware that just such a day might arise, when the federal government would accumulate far too much power at the expense of the people. In the US Constitution they provided us with a tool to reclaim our heritage of freedom; a Convention of States. The States, through a convention, can propose amendments to the Constitution that will bring an end to the federal government’s growing tyranny. Through a convention we can force Congress to balance the budget, overturn erroneous Supreme Court decisions, disassemble the gigantic federal bureaucracy, put term limits on federal officials, and much more.
Recently, some have raised fears that such a convention could “run away” and destroy our precious freedoms, but our Founders were wiser men than that. As with everything else, they put numerous checks and balances in place to ensure a Convention of States could never run away. The foremost among these is ratification: a Convention of States only has authority to propose amendments. Before they ever become part of the Constitution, any proposed amendments must be ratified by 38 States, ensuring that no rogue propositions could ever make it into the Constitution. It’s high time we start using all the power we have in the Constitution to stop the growing tyranny of our federal government, so we can pass on the same legacy of freedom that we ourselves received in this great nation.
Please visit Convention of States for more information, to get involved and sign the petition.
