Multi-National Corporate Greed and its influence on the government
you pay for
Once again the polls show a large majority of American
citizens are opposed to the current government immigration polices
and proposed Senate immigration (amnesty) bill. 70% of the citizens
are opposed, 69% of the Senate voted in favor.
This is an obvious disconnect between the citizens and their
elected representatives in the US Senate.
Obviously the US Senate is not representing the citizens.
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out where the push
for "cheap labor" is coming from. Corporate greed is the main
benefactor of this current Senate bill. The Bush Administration, at
least 69 US Senators call the bill "comprehensive reform" to mislead
the citizens. Many, including the author have called it amnesty,
because it does pardon the breaking of federal law! But the best
term to describe this bill is "cheap labor."
In fact the corporations who will benefit from the cheap labor
will benefit even more by the creation and legalization of a
virtually permanent "cheap labor segment" of our population.
Virtually millions of legalized residents who will be locked into
minimum wage (or less). So these Senators actually expect people
working and living on minimum wage to save $5,000.00 to pay the
required fee so that they become a citizen?
At minimum wage it would take almost a half year to earn the fee
- even if the person had zero living expenses!
No, after spending trillions of dollars of your tax dollars to try and eliminate
poverty in our country, the Multi-National Corporations and their
cronies in the US Senate and White House are now proposing creating
a virtually permanent poverty class of between 12 - 60 million
legalized modern day serfs.
Not only have we spent trillions in an effort to eliminate
poverty, but the Democrats are proposing legislation to provide
benefits for the American citizens "wage insurance" to help
them when laid-off from the jobs that Bush and cronies claim they
will not do (See:
Both Democrats and Republicans playing ostrich with citizens and
pandering to corporate greed
). This just gets stupider
Of course US Senators pushing this fiasco, such as Georgia
Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss will say they are not influenced
by the large corporations. But take a look at the contributors to
his campaign accounts (See:
Have you ever wondered why Senator Chambliss ignores the citizens?
Page 1 of 5).
How do you spell hypocrisy"
C - H - A - M - B - L - I - S - S!
You can't take that much money from folks and not be influenced!
This is a far more serious problem than just the immigration
bill. At federal, State and local levels special interests are
increasing their influence, while the citizens are ignored at an
This is one of the reasons that a majority of Americans no
longer participate in the elective process (See:
Voting Trend in Presidential Election Years). I don't blame
them, at times the process is so sickening that I want to puke!
But dropping out is not the answer - if you have children or
plan to have children. If you have grandchildren, like I do, you are
old enough to have seen many dismal changes in our country. If we
drop out and quit participating we are destroying our future
If you are concerned about not only the use of this
immigration bill to provide "cheap labor" for corporations, but the
growing disconnect between government and the citizens, consider
helping us to open the door to some real political competition.
The current special interest money influence election process
limits any real challenges to the Republican and Democratic parties.
Special interests are so embedded in both of these parties - or they
are so embedded with special interests - that you only get more of
the same every election.
Shouldn't you the citizens have a real choice on election day?
Is it right for the Republican and Democratic Parties working
together to make the decision of who you will not have a chance to vote
for - for you? Wouldn't you prefer to make that decision yourself?
Next year will be an election year. The battle on this
terrible piece of cheap labor legislation will be won or lost before then. But
the battle on the next version will possibly be won or lost on 2008
election day. Demand that you be given a choice other than the two
parties who have just demonstrated for all to see - that they
represent corporate greed more than the citizens.
In any event Georgia Republican Senator Saxby "Cheap Labor"
Chambliss should be retired in 2008!
Wants Illegal to Go Home
Public Prefers Enforcement, Not Senate
WASHINGTON - New polling shows a strong preference for
enforcing U.S. Immigration laws that cause illegal aliens to
go home. Advocacy groups and even some media outlets have
released surveys showing support for legalizing illegals.
However, those polls often gave voters a very limited choice
between large-scale deportations or "earned legalization," or
simply asked about conditional legalization without any
alternative. When given the across-the-board enforcement
option, with the goal of causing illegals to go home, the
public strongly favors the enforcement approach over
legalization with conditions.
Contrary to the new Senate bill, most Americans want
less and not more immigration. When told the number of
immigrants here and the number coming, 70 percent of voters
said the level is too high, 19 percent said it is about right,
and 5 percent said too low.
- 75% of Republicans said immigration is too high, 5% said
- 69% of Democrats said immigration is too high, 6% said
- 71% of self described moderates said immigration is too
high, 4% said too low.
Public prefers that illegals go home, rather than be
legalized. 58 percent of voters said they wanted illegals
to go home, compared to 30 percent who favored legalization.
The public still overwhelmingly supported enforcement over
legalization even when many conditions are imposed on illegals
like paying a fine, learning English and undergoing a
Americans support enforcement to make illegals go home.
When presented by itself, 79 percent of the public said they
supported reducing the illegal immigrant population by
increasing border enforcement, penalizing employers, and
increasing cooperation with local law enforcement, while 15
percent were opposed. No other proposal had near this level of
"Many polls give only the false choice of legalization or
mass deportations. Some even give legalization as an option in
isolation without other alternatives. But when given
across-the-board enforcement that causes illegals to go home
as an option, the public overwhelmingly supports it rather
than legalization with conditions," said Jessica Echard,
Executive Director of Eagle Forum. "This poll shows why
Senators who support the Kennedy-Kyl amnesty are facing such a
firestorm of opposition from constituents."
