An Open Letter To Congress
This is addressed to all 535 members of Congress. This is NOT a threat of violence, nor is it intended to incite violence. I write these words to express to those of you who are in the best position to prevent the violence I fear is on our horizon in an attempt to spur you to take the necessary action to head this off. I can only hope and pray that you heed this warning, but I have little confidence you will.
As we speak, our borders are being inundated by a flood of illegal immigrants. For obvious political reasons most Democrats, led by President Obama, are cheering this invasion on simply because they believe it will lead to a permanent underclass that will ensure decades of uninterrupted power for the liberal elites. This is shameful and disgusting behavior for any freedom loving American, even a Democrat. What is even more shameful and disgusting is that far too many Republicans are taking their side, for reasons I cannot begin to imagine.
Whatever the reason, let me spell this out for you.
We, the people, do NOT want this. Unlike those of you who have positioned yourselves in the ruling class in Washington, we understand the dangers of an open border policy that allows unfettered access to the nation WE have built to anyone and everyone who crosses our border. We understand the unfairness of the policy, we understand the economic issues posed by the policy, and we understand full well the national security issues that come from open borders. Much better than you, it would seem, we understand the danger such a policy poses to our way of life, and to the future of our children.
Those of you in Congress, along with the President, are either oblivious to or unconcerned with many things that should hold your attention. To begin with, you should understand that you are employees, not masters. You serve on our payroll and you owe your allegiance to those of us who put you there. You should also understand that regardless of how many illegal (yes illegal, not undocumented) aliens you bring across the border, voting requires citizenship and citizenship takes time. They will not be able to vote for you in November, nor will they be able to vote for you in 2016. Your jobs are in jeopardy.
President Obama has embarked on a course that seems to lead directly to amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, and which is demonstrably bringing more in by the tens of thousands. Some of you openly support this policy, while others assist him by your inaction and by your silence. None of this is going unnoticed. You were sent there to do a job, and we expect this situation to be dealt with in short order.
Please, allow me to make this perfectly clear. Our government only works because we have a system of checks and balances to ensure each branch of government functions as intended, and is prevented from engaging in excesses that threaten the republic. As it stands, the Executive Branch of the government has abandoned all pretense of living up to its constitutional responsibilities and shows no sign of respect for the document that grants it authority to act on behalf of the American people.
The Legislative Branch now has the responsibility of reigning in the excesses of the Executive Branch. So far, you have shown no inclination of doing so. You dither over matters that pale in significance to the matters at hand, bluster in front of every microphone that comes your way, and fail to do what is necessary to protect this nation. Your time is running out, and we now strongly suspect that you are complicit in the obvious plan that is being carried out by the President.
As I stated at the beginning, I do not advocate, condone, or wish for any form of violence. I believe the situation can be resolved through the political process, and I hope and pray that it is. I am aware however, as you should be, that there are many people in this country that are not as patient or reasoned as I am trying to be, and I believe that number is growing by leaps and bounds. I also believe that we are rapidly reaching the point that this could get out of hand. To quote Johnny Cash, "I hear that train a comin'."
Our founding fathers gave us a Constitution that created the world’s best form of government, with a set of checks and balances to keep it in line. The last line of defense to keep us free of tyranny is the fourth branch of government, the American people. We have a duty to stand up and fight back when government fails in its primary duty to protect the freedoms of the people who created it.
The President has stated unequivocally that he will act without the authorization of Congress to achieve his goals. He has also made it clear that he intends to grant amnesty to as many illegal aliens as possible, and to invite as many as he can to join them. He has even proposed to provide them with air transportation to make their journey even easier, thumbing his nose at those of us who oppose his policy. Congress has the ability and the responsibility to act to stop this lawless action. We expect you to do so.
In Israel, we have seen a demonstration of what true leadership looks like. Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that he will do what is necessary to protect his country, and refuses to apologize to anyone for doing so. Members of Congress, I implore you to show the same kind of leadership. Barack Obama can be stopped, and he must be stopped. Will you stand up for what you know is the right thing to do, or will you allow this to go on until the American people rise up to show you how it is done?
Do the right thing.
