NRA-ILA Grassroots Alert Vol. 13, No. 38 09/22/06


The House of Representatives may act as early as next week on critical pro-Second Amendment reform bills. These bills need your support today:

H.R. 5092--the "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) Modernization and Reform Act of 2006," by Reps. Howard Coble (R-N.C.) and Bobby Scott (D-Va.) -- will curb the agency's efforts to revoke dealers' licenses for minor paperwork errors, improve the appeals process for dealers, and, establish new guidelines for BATFE investigations. This bill was drafted in large part to address recent, blatant BATFE abuses at Richmond, Virginia gun shows highlighted in hearings before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. (See next story on Brady Center's blatant misrepresentation of this bill.)

H.R. 5005--the "Firearms Corrections and Improvements Act," by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) -- will protect gun owners' privacy by creating a permanent version of the "Tiahrt Amendment," preventing disclosure of gun owner records outside of legitimate criminal investigations. The bill also includes a ban on BATFE retrieving out-of-business dealers' records by the gun owner's name-making permanent an appropriations restriction that's been in effect for the last 10 years. Among other reforms, H.R. 5005 will also permanently ban federal fees on instant background checks and roll back various restrictions on firearms industry activities.

With the legislative clock running out, this may be our last chance to pass these essential reforms before the November election--so please be sure to immediately contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to VOTE FOR H.R. 5092 and H.R. 5005 when they are brought to the House floor! Additional contact information can be found by visiting, clicking the "Take Action" icon, and then clicking the "Write Your Representatives" icon.

Please be sure to contact your Representative TODAY, and urge your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same!

Thank you for your continued support as we work to make these legislative reforms the law of the land!


The Brady Center's latest hatchet job attacks makes many false claims about firearm dealer license revocations, in order to attack H.R. 5092 and the reforms that bill would make.

The "study" is based on published court decisions that have upheld BATFE license revocations. This is misleading because it excludes all cases (about 90% of revocations) where dealers choose not to file a challenge in court-often because the dealer couldn't afford the necessary attorneys' fees.

The study also implies that dealers violate the law more often than they used to. To "prove" this, the Brady Center relies on studies from the Clinton administration, which targeted licensees in an effort to reduce the availability of firearms to law-abiding Americans. It's not surprising that when BATFE politically broadened the definition of "violations," it found more of them.

The report also harps on dealers who had guns "lost" or "unaccounted for." These vague phrases don't tell us whether the dealer had a gun stolen, made a paperwork mistake, or made criminal "off the book" sales. Obviously, under current law or under H.R. 5092, intentional sales without paperwork would be serious violations, for which a dealer could have his license revoked (and even be arrested and imprisoned).


Data released by the FBI on Monday showed that in 2005, the nation's total violent crime rate was 38% lower than in 1991, when violent crime hit an all-time high. Rates of the individual categories of violent crime were also much lower in 2005 than in 1991. Murder was 43% lower, rape 25% lower, robbery 48% lower, and aggravated assault 33% lower. The FBI's report came on the heels of a Bureau of Justice Statistics crime survey that found that violent crime was lower in 2005 than anytime in the survey's 32-year history.

Defying the anti-gunners' claim that more guns means more crime, from 1991-2005 the number of privately owned guns increased by more than 70 million.

The news media often characterize violent crime as a primarily gun-oriented problem, but the FBI's report showed that only one in every four violent crimes in 2005 was committed with a gun. In 2005, as in previous years, most violent crimes were robberies and aggravated assaults, most of which were committed with knives or bare hands.

Recently, anti-gun politicians and activists have intensified their rhetoric over the "lack" of bans on handguns, so-called "assault weapons", and .50-caliber rifles; gun registration, gun owner licensing, and mandatory background checks on sales of guns between friends and family members; and limits on the frequency of gun purchases, all of which they say are necessary to reduce the nation's murder rate. But for the last seven years, the murder rate has been steady¾in the 5.5-5.7 per 100,000 population range¾at all times lower than anytime since the mid-1960s. In 2005, for example, the murder rate was 5.6.

Naturally, anti-gunners will downplay the downward trend in violent crime since 1991, and focus on the fact that the FBI's report showed a 1% increase in total violent crime, and a 2% increase in murder in 2005, compared to 2004. But those changes are miniscule, compared to the huge decrease in crime over the last 14 years.

The FBI's report once again confirmed that violent crime rates are lower in states with Right-to-Carry (RTC) laws. In 2005, RTC states had, on average, 22% lower total violent crime, 30% less murder, 46% lower robbery, and 12% lower aggravated assault rates, compared to the rest of the country.

As usual, Washington, D.C., which leads the nation in anti-gun laws, led the nation in murder, with a rate six times higher than the rest of the country. Neighboring Maryland, where gun control advocates have been particularly active recently, once again had the highest robbery rate among the states, but also tied for the unenviable distinction of "first place" in murder among the states. However, despite Maryland's high crime counts, CeaseFire Maryland, the local Brady Campaign affiliate that recently released a paper demanding an "assault weapon" ban, was unable to point to any crimes in the state involving such a gun.

The FBI's report must have displeased New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg (R). Despite the mayor's recent posturing on the gun issue, and his self-laudatory comments about fighting crime, the Big Apple's murder rate was more than double that of the rest of the state. Similarly, in Philadelphia, where anti-gun politicians are calling for a statewide one-gun-a-month law, the murder rate was more than seven times higher than the rest of Pennsylvania.

Adding to the reasons why voters should "Dump Doyle" in Wisconsin's upcoming gubernatorial election, their state had the greatest total violent crime rate increase (15.1%) between 2004-2005. Murder was up 25.2%; robbery up 11.2%; and aggravated assault up 20.2%. Wisconsin is one of only two states that prohibits Right-to-Carry entirely, but in 2005, 11 of the 12 states that had the greatest decreases in total violent crime, and 12 of the 14 states with the greatest decreases in murder were Right-to-Carry states. The seven states with the lowest total violent crime rates in 2005, and 11 of the 12 states that had the lowest murder rates, were Right-to-Carry states.

Last, but not least, is good news from Florida, the state that during the last 20 years has been most often attacked by anti-gunners, for (among other reasons) setting the Right-to-Carry and "Castle Doctrine" movements in motion. In 2005, Florida recorded a murder rate 13% lower than the rate for the rest of the country (4.96 per 100,000, vs. 5.67 for the rest of the country). For the record, Florida's 2005 murder rate was 58% lower than it was in 1986, the last year before the state's landmark Right-to-Carry law took effect.

The People's Right to Keep and Bear Arms

The People's Right to Keep and Bear Arms

You will be told that the second amendment is about militias, but it is not and that is an intentional lie. It was written to protect the right of the people to defend themselves and have an armed populous to defend the country from foreign and internal threats to our liberty, I.E. the Government trying to take away our Rights.

This amendment uses the word People I.E. you and I, the same as it does in every case that it is used in the Bill of Rights and Constitution, it means the common citizens. The founders were clear when they meant State I.E. Government and when they meant People. They did not give the right to the government at any level to regulate your right to self defense or to keep and bear arms, they in fact wrote that it "Shall not be infringed".

It is no coincidence that the right to keep and bear arms comes right after the right to free speech. When we lose these rights and the others in the Bill of Rights will shortly follow, and we will be no longer a free people.

Without the right to bear arms to defend ourselves and our rights, we have no rights! Are we free people today? Our rights have been so infringed by government because we keep demanding more of government that it is debatable if we are free now. Read the Bill of Rights and Constitution for yourself and see how frequently it is violated and ignored by our government from the Federal Government on down to the local level. It is vital to the future freedom of this country and our posterity that we know our rights as protected by the Constitution and Bill of Rights and vote to defend them.

The answer to violence and crime is not to ban guns or other weapons. We have literally thousands of gun laws which largely are not enforced well, if at all. It is illegal to murder someone, do we need more laws specifying it is illegal to murder someone with a weapon as well? (I oppose hate crimes for the same reason.) In many locations in this county you can not have a gun in your home to defended yourself. Much less carry one in your car or on you as I do here in Arizona to defend against car jackers and other assailants. Is it any wonder that crime and murder are rampant in these areas? Such areas are easy pickings for the criminals who don't obey the laws anyway, because they know their victims have been disarmed by the government for them.. In nearly every state it is illegal to shoot a burglar even in your own home unless you are threatened with harm or death and can not get away..

Someone breaking into to your home is not threat enough? It is mind boggling. You may or may not be prosecuted for shooting a burglar depending on the views of the prosecutor in your area. Then, thanks to lawyers, you might be sued by the burglar or his family for injuring him, pain and suffering, depriving him of his livelihood. You think I'm joking? They have done it and won several times!

The answer to crime is to punish criminals severely for crimes. I strongly support capital punishment, I do not believe we should intern any criminal for life at tax payer expense. If they are so bad we must lock them away for life to protect society from them, then they should be put to death. If they take a life or use a gun in the commission of a violent crime they should be put to death. The idiots who want to ban guns will say their efforts have reduced crime. Utter lies, crime is going down because more and more states are keeping criminals behind bars with truth in sentencing and three strikes laws. The more criminals behind bars, the less crimes they commit, how much more simple could it be? The majority of crimes are committed by repeat criminals, something like 60% of all crimes. Crime is also going down because more states are allowing (imaging that, allowing you to exercise your God given right to defend yourself..), citizens in good standing to pay a tax (I.E. license) so they can carry a concealed weapon to defend themselves.

It has been proven conclusively that the more lax the gun laws a locality has and the more citizens carrying weapons to defend themselves, the less violent crime there is. The inverse is true also, the more strict the gun laws the more violent crime and murders there are. This is because criminals are cowards and attack the easiest prey they can find. They most definitely don't want to go after someone who can defend themselves and possibly hurt or kill them.

Accidents? Truth be told accidents with guns have been going down for decades. The reason why is education, yet the gun banning idiots claim gun education promotes gun violence. We teach children to be safe with matches, hot stoves, etc. Why do we not teach children how to be safe with guns? The NRA Eddie Eagle education program teaches very simple rules to children. If they find a gun they are not to touch it and to find an adult and tell them about it. It is frequently opposed by liberal fools because it has to do with guns and is taught by the NRA.. If we are to ban guns to "Save The Children" (a favorite refrain of reactionary, emotional, fools), should not we also ban cars, swimming pools, bicycles, dogs, etc., which each kill and maim far more children than guns do every year? Opps, I almost forgot there are some liberal fools out there trying to do just that too...

My interest in guns? I like to target shoot and I carry a pistol for self defense most of the time. I started carrying after a shoot out between two cars in the parking lot of the apartment complex I used to live in, in a reasonably nice neighborhood. A couple months later I was shot at in south Phoenix, likely by some gang members. They were following me on the highway I-10 and I pulled off on to surface streets around Thomas and 27th Ave to verify this, then tried to loose them on side streets. I am a very good driver and when I was so far ahead of them I started to loose them, they turned sideways at a T in the street and fired one shot which went through the rear window of the camper shell of the red lowered Toyota Pickup I had as my company vehicle at the time. This came from my boss's son after his divorce and was popular with the gangs back then, it attracted way too much attention all the time. From there the bullet went though a box, a plastic tool box and passed between where the camper rests on the bed frame and the bottom of the camper, hitting the rear of the cab behind my right shoulder, stopping after leaving a big dent in the metal. The car was a white late 80's Mustang with dark tinted windows so I never saw them and they were always behind me so no plate number. The police think it was a 9 mm handgun. Which was one of the reasons I bought a 40 Caliber Glock 23, also the police are carrying the same caliber which was a shortened version of the10 mm the FBI was carrying in the 80's.

Several years ago, about 1 A.M. (I'm a night person) I left my apartment complex to mail some bills that needed to be off right away so they would go out at the 6 am pickup at the post office half a mile away. When I came back about ten minutes later the parking lot was filled with police, Fire Dept. and neighbors. In the short time I was gone, one of the neighbors had caught someone breaking into his truck and they murdered him by shooting him in the head when he confronted them unarmed. Unarmed = Victim.. I won't be a victim, don't be one yourself!

If we allow the liberals to keep passing stupid gun laws, some day you will be a criminal just because you own a shotgun, rifle or a handgun to protect your home, hunt with or target shoot. There are already liberal controlled cities (in America, the land of the Free and home of the Brave??) where if you have an unregistered gun you are a criminal just for possessing
it. Have no doubt many liberal idiots want only the police to have guns and have publicly said so, even then they don't really trust the police with them either.. There is no question they want to take away your rights to arm and defend yourself and your family. They don't Trust you! You Must not trust them! Say NO! to more gun laws! Be involved, write your congressmen and senators to tell them you are opposed to any bill that infringes on your right to bear arms.. Tell them you are opposed any federal crime bill, crime is a local issue, best dealt with at a local level. Elect people who will support your rights and do your best to remove from office those who won't.

What the media isn't reporting about immigration

(I heard a solder last week call in to the Sean Hannity raido show and say
they were finding stolen cars from the US being used as IUD's in Iraq.. Scott)

Iranian currency, military badges in Arabic, jackets and
other clothing are among the items that have been discovered
along the banks of the Rio Grande River. These discoveries
have Texas law enforcement officials sounding the alarm.

But will Congress listen?

"These people are not paying $50,000 or more a head just to
'take jobs no American will do,'" said Rep. Tom Tancredo to
MRC's Cybercast News Service. Tancredo, an outspoken advocate
of secured borders and no amnesty for illegals says,
"Terrorists are working round the clock to infiltrate
the United States. Congress and this administration
must address this gaping hole in our national security
and they must do it now."

Texas Sheriffs have strong evidence to suggest that
terrorists and drug cartels are learning Spanish and
blending with the Mexican culture in order to infiltrate
our borders--and in some cases the Mexican military is
helping them!

Bigoted, biased and borderline anti-Semitic, is how Abraham
Foxman, National Director of the U.S.-based Anti-Defamation
League, characterized Amnesty International's "Human Rights"
report accusing Israel of war crimes.

While the report specifically details Israel's targeting
of civilian homes and infrastructure, they make little
mention of the fact that Hezbollah terrorists used civilians
as shields and hid their bombs and weapons in civilian homes.

The report all but ignores the fact that Hezbollah terrorists
openly fired on Israeli civilians and launched more than
4,000 Hezbollah rockets into Israel killing civilians and
destroying countless homes!

Brigitte Gabriel on Knowing our Enemy

(I received this as an email from a friend-Scott)

Editor's Note: Below are excerpts from Brigitte Gabriel's speech delivered
at the Intelligence Summit in Washington DC,
Saturday February 18, 2006.

We gather here today to share information and knowledge. Intelligence is
not merely cold hard data about numerical strength or armament or
disposition of military forces. The most important element of intelligence
has to be understanding the mindset and intention of the enemy. The West
has been wallowing in a state of ignorance and denial for thirty years as
Muslim extremists perpetrated evil against innocent victims in the name of

I was ten years old when my home exploded around me, burying me under the
rubble and leaving me to drink my blood to survive, as the perpetrators
shouted "Allah Akbar!" My only crime was that I was a Christian living in a
Christian town. At 10 years old, I learned the meaning of the word "infidel."

I had a crash course in survival. Not in the Girl Scouts, but in a bomb
shelter where I lived for seven years in pitch darkness, freezing cold,
drinking stale water and eating grass to live. At the age of 13 I dressed
in my burial clothes going to bed at night, waiting to be slaughtered. By
the age of 20, I had buried most of my friends--killed by Muslims. We were
not Americans living in New York , or Britons in London. We were Arab
Christians living in Lebanon.

As a victim of Islamic terror, I was amazed when I saw Americans waking up
on September 12, 2001, and asking themselves "Why do they hate us?" The
psychoanalyst experts were coming up with all sorts of excuses as to what
we did to offend the Muslim World. But if America and the West were paying
attention to the Middle East they would not have had to ask the question.
Simply put, they hate us because we are defined in their eyes by one simple
word: "infidels."

Under the banner of Islam "la, ilaha illa allah, muhammad rasoulu allah,"
(None is god except Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) they
murdered Jewish children in Israel, massacred Christians in Lebanon, killed
Copts in Egypt, Assyrians in Syria, Hindus in India, and expelled almost
900,000 Jews from Muslim lands. We Middle Eastern infidels paid the price
then. Now infidels worldwide are paying the price for indifference and

Tolerating evil is a crime. Appeasing murderers doesn't buy protection. It
earns one disrespect and loathing in the enemy's eyes. Yet, apathy is the
weapon by which the West is committing suicide. Political correctness
forms the shackles around our ankles, by which Islamists are leading us to
our demise.

America and the West are doomed to failure in this war unless they stand up
and identify the real enemy: Islam. You hear about Wahabbi and Salafi Islam
as the only extreme form of Islam. All the other Muslims, supposedly, are
wonderful moderates. Closer to the truth are the pictures of the irrational
eruption of violence in reaction to the cartoons of Mohammed printed by a
Danish newspaper. From burning embassies, to calls to butcher those who
mock Islam, to warnings that the West be prepared for another holocaust,
those pictures have given us a glimpse into the real face of the enemy.
News pictures and video of these events represent a canvas of hate
decorated by different nationalities who share one common ideology of hate,
bigotry and intolerance derived from one source: authentic Islam. An Islam
that is awakening from centuries of slumber to re-ignite its wrath against
the infidel and dominate the world. An Islam which has declared "Intifada"
on the West.

America and the West can no longer afford to lay in their lazy state of
overweight ignorance. The consequences of this mental disease are starting
to attack the body, and if they don't take the necessary steps now to
control it, death will be knocking soon. If you want to understand the
nature of the enemy we face, visualize a tapestry of snakes. They slither
and they hiss, and they would eat each other alive, but they will unite in
a hideous mass to achieve their common goal of imposing Islam on the world.

This is the ugly face of the enemy we are fighting. We are fighting a
powerful ideology that is capable of altering basic human instincts. An
ideology that can turn a mother into a launching pad of death. A perfect
example is a recently elected Hamas official in the Palestinian Territories
who raves in heavenly joy about sending her three sons to death and
offering the ones who are still alive for the cause. It is an ideology that
is capable of offering highly educated individuals such as doctors and
lawyers far more joy in attaining death than any respect and stature, life
in society is ever capable of giving them.

The United States has been a prime target for radical Islamic hatred and
terror. Every Friday, mosques in the Middle East ring with shrill prayers
and monotonous chants calling death, destruction and damnation down on
America and its people. The radical Islamists' deeds have been as vile as
their words. Since the Iran hostage crisis, more than three thousand
Americans have died in a terror campaign almost unprecedented in its
calculated cruelty along with thousands of other citizens worldwide. Even
the Nazis did not turn their own children into human bombs, and then
rejoice at their deaths as well the deaths of their victims. This
intentional, indiscriminate and wholesale murder of innocent American
citizens is justified and glorified in the name of Islam.

America cannot effectively defend itself in this war unless and until the
American people understand the nature of the enemy that we face. Even after
9/11 there are those who say that we must "engage" our terrorist enemies,
that we must "address their grievances". Their grievance is our freedom of
religion. Their grievance is our freedom of speech. Their grievance is our
democratic process where the rule of law comes from the voices of many not
that of just one prophet. It is the respect we instill in our children
towards all religions. It is the equality we grant each other as human
beings sharing a planet and striving to make the world a better place for
all humanity. Their grievance is the kindness and respect a man shows a
woman, the justice we practice as equals under the law, and the mercy we
grant our enemy. Their grievance cannot be answered by an apology for who
or what we are.

Our mediocre attitude of not confronting Islamic forces of bigotry and
hatred wherever they raised their ugly head in the last 30 years, has
empowered and strengthened our enemy to launch a full scale attack on the
very freedoms we cherish in their effort to impose their values and way of
life on our civilization.

If we don't wake up and challenge our Muslim community to take action
against the terrorists within it, if we don't believe in ourselves as
Americans and in the standards we should hold every patriotic American to,
we are going to pay a price for our delusion. For the sake of our children
and our country, we must wake up and take action. In the face of a torrent
of hateful invective and terrorist murder, America's learning curve since
the Iran hostage crisis is so shallow that it is almost flat. The longer we
lay supine, the more difficult it will be to stand erect.

The Cost of Illegal immigration

A friend sent this to me, it's a bit dated- Scott

Please read, at least, the last few ideas at the bottom of this email. There is some eye opening info here.
This is old info, I'm sure it is worse now.

From the L.A Times:

1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County (L.A. County has 10 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This was because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on MediCal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in L.A. are Spanish speaking.

10. In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak English. 3.9 million speak Spanish (10.2 million people in L.A. County).

(All the above from the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.

Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration.

The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was, (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay), a NET $70 BILLION a year, [Professor Donald Huddle, Rice University]. The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) for the average adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE number.

29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens. (I've heard recently it is closer to 35%)

If they can come to this country to raise Hell and demonstration by the thousands, Why can't they take charge over the corruption in their own country?

We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue.

THE U.S. VS MEXICO: On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer teams met at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-Mexican even though most lived in this country. They booed during the National Anthem and U.S. flags were held upside down. As the match progressed, supporters of the U.S. team were insulted, pelted with projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and trash were thrown at the U.S. players before and after the match. The coach of the U.S. team, Steve Sampson said, "This was the most painful experience I have ever had in this profession."

Did you know that immigrants from Mexico and other non-European countries can come to this country and get preferences in jobs, education, and government contracts? It's called affirmative action or racial privilege. The Emperor of Japan or the President of Mexico could migrate here and immediately be eligible for special rights unavailable for Americans of European descent.

Recently, a vote was taken in the U.S. Congress to end this practice. It was defeated. Every single Democratic senator except Ernest Hollings voted to maintain special privileges for Hispanic, Asian and African immigrants. They were joined by thirteen Republicans. Bill Clinton and Al Gore have repeatedly stated that they believe that massive immigration from countries like Mexico is good. They have also backed special privileges for these immigrants.

Corporate America has signed on to the idea that minorities and third world immigrants should get special, privileged status. Some examples are Exxon, Texaco, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, Paine Weber, Starbucks and many more.

DID YOU KNOW?: That Mexico regularly intercedes on the side of the defense in criminal cases involving Mexican nationals? Did you know that Mexico has NEVER extradited a Mexican national accused of murder in the U.S. in spite of agreements to do so? According to the L.A. Times, Orange County, California is home to 275 gangs with 17,000 members; 98% of which are Mexican and Asian. How's your county doing?

According to a New York Times article dated May 19, 1994, 20 years after the great influx of legal immigrants from Southeast Asia, 30% are still on welfare compared to 8% of households nationwide. A Wall Street Journal editorial dated December 5, 1994 quotes law enforcement officials as stating that Asian mobsters are the "greatest criminal challenge the country faces." Not bad for a group that is still under 5% of the population.

Is education important to you? Here are the words of a teacher who spent over 20 years in the Los Angeles School system. "Imagine teachers in classes containing 30-40 students of widely varying attention spans and motivation, many of whom aren't fluent in English. Educators seek learning materials likely to reach the majority of students and that means fewer words and math problems and more pictures and multicultural references."

WHEN I WAS YOUNG: I remember hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Island. They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breathe free. They wanted to become Americans. NOW, they are invaders and far too many invaders come here with demands. They demand to be taught in their own language, to be granted drivers licenses and voting rights, health care (MediCal), WIC and welfare. It won't be long before they demand Social Security benefits. They demand special privileges--affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies that glorify their culture. Many invaders drive vehicles with no vehicle insurance or drivers licenses (breaking our laws again) and many aren't courteous to other drivers on the roads. They cause many traffic accidents (most of the "hit and runs" and if the vehicle won't run after the accident, they run if they can - they don't believe in taking responsibility for their own actions).

HOW CAN YOU HELP? Send copies of this letter to at least two other people, 100 would be even better.
And vote out the liberal IDIOTS that create and embrace these ludicrous, self destructive laws for the USA (most of the Democrats' House and Senate seats - time for some new more rational Democratic blood OR just vote in a Republican instead)!

De-throne most of the liberal Democrats; most of them have done too much damage to America already! It is time for a change of leadership in the Democratic Party! They don't have America's best interests at heart, they only want to grab the power to control you and dictate their distorted will on you. They won't claim any responsibility for the damage they have already done to America; they are like the invaders in that respect. It's time for some new blood in the Democratic Party; they need to get back to the early values that used to drive the Democrats back in the 40's OR just vote in a Republican instead!

These invaders need to be chipped, punished (caned or something that hurts), fined and sent back to Mexico. And the smugglers that bring these invaders into our country should be dealt with even more severely! Many of the terrorists are getting into the USA and using Mexican names. Mexico needs to take responsibility for its citizens invading the USA. Mexico needs to purge all its corrupt leaders and provide assistance to its citizens so they want to stay in Mexico!

Mexico is our enemy in that they will not fight the terrorists who want to use Mexico as a staging site to get into the USA. Many times Mexico has assisted our enemies! This makes Mexico our enemy, their current leadership certainly can't be trusted. Mexican militia is currently assisting Mexicans to get across our southern boarder!
Why isn't Pres. Bush doing more about this major problem?

My Political Leanings

My Political View Point

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;
when the government fears the people, there is liberty" - Thomas Jefferson

"I love my country but fear what it's government has become.." - unknown

You can read my past political ranting on my Conservative Opinions & Political Commentary Page on my home page site

I am interested in politics, I don't fit in any clearly defined category. If I had to define myself I guess I would be a Libertarian Republican, far right wing conservative or a Constitutionalist, take your pick. I'd probably be a Libertarian but most of the Libertarians I know are whack jobs.. So call me a conservative constitutionalist.

I am a strong supporter of the 2nd amendment of the Bill of Rights as will as the rest of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. See my The People's Right to Bear Arms and 2nd Amendment Quotes web pages

I believe our government ignores these inspired documents and we the people need to do what ever we must to keep them from taking our rights and freedoms from us, whether incrementally or wholesale. If strong opinions don't upset you and you won't be offended by what I say, considering what I've already told you, then go ahead and read the rest of the page. If they do upset you, you were warned so don't complain to me about it! As the T-shirt one of my sisters gave me for Christmas a while back says "I'm not opinionated, I'm just always right!".

Some quick thoughts on current politics. Democrats are evil and while the Republicans aren't the best we could hope for they are a an improvement over having immoral socialists who stand for about everything I oppose being in charge.

I have a lot of complaints about President Bush and the Republicans, I don't know why the Democrats are complain so much (other than they aren't in power and that is all they care about wether it is good for the country or not), the Republicans have massively grown the size of government since they have been in office and have spent like drunken sailors, something the Democrats would do if they were in power. About the only things I can say Bush and the Republican congress have done I like is lower taxes some, put in some conservative judges which is extremely important and have done a fair job on the war on terror. Even though the mainstream media and Democrats have done their best to under mine what we are doing. If the Democrats win back the House and Senate this year it will be bad for the country and I blame the Republicans because they have done such a lousy job of running the country and have forsaken their roots.

The one thing I want the Republicans to do right away is close our boarders. We are being invaded and it has to stop. If we have to post the military on the Mexican boarder and shoot every person that tries to cross the boarder illegally to make it stop I'd be for it, we must do what ever it takes! I live in Arizona and I see the costs of illegal immigration, nay, invaders who are violating our borders. We are spending a fortune on bi-lingual education, our hospitals are closing emergency rooms because they are going bankrupt. We have the highest stolen car rate in the nation. It is common for the illegals to get in accidents and then take off because they are here illegal and have no insurance.
I saw the results of one such accident a couple months ago. A pickup I'm sure was driven by an illegal ran a red light in front of my dentist's office, hit an SUV, turned it over, took out a electric pole, fire hydrant and only because it hit a large tree and stopped preventing it from plowing into the dentist's office. The driver got out and took off running, there were several witnesses, from the nearby school and apartment complex across the street, but no one tried to stop him.. I could go on and on about such problems, but need to get to bed.. They cause crime, gangs, drugs, people smuggling, you name it and we have it all going on in Arizona..

Well, I will keep this some what short since it is late and this is really a test of the email my post to my blog set up. When I have more time I will rant some more. The one thing I don't have a lot of these days is time..
