9/11, Open Borders & Cmpaign '08

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
On September 11, 2001, the willful negligence of federal, state, and local politicians aided in the murder of 3000 people. These murders were the foreseeable, inevitable result of decisions made by Presidents and Congresses beginning in the 1960s. They dismantled procedures that screened out dangerous aliens attempting to get visas while masquerading as students, tourists, and business travelers; and concurrently, to open US borders to millions of illegal aliens.
ALL nineteen of the 9/11 terrorists were given entry visas by the State Department despite laws that barred all of them.
In disregarding the law, bureaucrats merely obeyed the wishes of politicians who in turn bowed to lobbying and campaign contributions by the travel and education industries. They wanted ever increasing numbers of aliens to fill more airplane seats, amusement parks, hotels, and college and university classrooms.

There were profits to make and political careers to build by making it easy for any alien to get a visa, and neither the profiteers nor the politicians cared if some visitors were terrorists and criminals.
Meanwhile, employers such as beef and poultry processors, contractors, etc., discovered that the worker protections of the New Deal could be evaded and profits increased if American labor was replaced by cheap foreign workers, both legal and illegal.
Presidents and Congresses responded to their campaign donations by stripping America’s borders of personnel needed to keep out illegals and ending prosecutions of employers of illegals. State and city politicians joined in by giving drivers licenses, subsidized housing, and free medical care to illegals, and refusing to report them to the INS.
By 2001, the result of these political decisions was a population of over 10 million illegals and a culture of absolute lawlessness.
Thus, Al Qaeda’s planners knew the U.S. would grant visas to their agents, and that once in the U.S. the terrorists could blend in with the millions of illegals, free from fear of discovery; free to get drivers licenses, open bank accounts; free to finance, plan, and rehearse their mass murder; free, with U.S.-issued drivers’ licenses as valid ID, to board planes they would use to murder our loved ones.
All this freedom was granted them, wrongfully but knowingly, by American politicians in order to get support from those who profit from open borders. This must stop.

   VOTING  out  one  party  &  replacing  them  with  the  other  party  has  not  worked  in  the  Congress  or  the  Senate.  Democrats  promising  to  clean  up  pork  &  earmarks  were  elected  &  yet  last  years  (2007),  spending  bills  contained  11,900  pork  barrel  projects.  At  a  cost  to  tax-payers  of  over  $20  billion.  Now  we’re  being  asked  to  choose  between  a  Republican/Democrat  as  our  next  president.
Candidates  are  forced  to  raise  large  sums  of  money  each  election.  What  do  corporations  get?  They  get  to set  our  Energy  policy,  our  Immigration  policy,  our  Trade  policies.   Since  9/11  there’s  been  no  effort  to  secure  our  borders  or  lower  our  dependence  on  foreign  oil.  Wht else?
Democrats  &  Republicans  from  the  president  down  are  guilty  of  putting  this  nations  security  at  risk.  And  for  what?  Cheap  foreign  labor.  Sen.  John  McCain’s  Comprehensive  Immigration  Reform  bill  was  wrote  by  corporate  lobbyist  to  subvert  the  Constitution  &  make  legal  what  is  now  illegal.  At  a  cost  to  this  nations  security.  Crooks  like  these  (Sen.s  Barack  Obama  &  Hillary  Clinton  both  signed  &  still  support  this  bill  as  well  as  the  Z-Visa)  should  be  ran  out  of  town.  Instead  their  running  for  president.
Both  parties  are  promising  change.  We  hear  it  every  4  years.  But  the  truth  is  they  have  almost  the  same  financial  backers  &  there’s  lobbyist  bribing  whichever  party  takes  office  (there's  35,000  lobbyist  in  Washington).
We  need  REAL  CHANGE!  The  kind  of  change  that  can  only  come  from  new  parties  &  publicly  funded  elections.  Because  as  long  as  Big  Oil  can  write  our  Energy  policy,  we’ll  always  be  dependent  on  foreign  oil.  As  long  as  China  can  manipulate  our  Trade  policies  we’ll  always  have  record  Trade  deficits.   There  is  a  reason  why  nothing  gets  fixed  in  Washington.
REAL  CHANGE  has  to  come  from  the  bottom  up.

Whether you call it the world financial structure, the U.S. culture of waste, or the ability of the common man to make a decent living, the system is broken. It's time for the common man to go on strike. Join or support the March on Washingon (more...)
