SENATE IMMIGRATION, (AMNESTY), BILL REVIVED

For those who do not believe that there is life after death, the United States Senate has proven that the dead can be revived. By a vote of 64 - 35 the Senate staged a cloture vote to revive the Amnesty Bill. If cloture had failed the bill would have remained dead and most likely would not be revived.

The cloture vote now allows debate for amendments until Thursday when another cloture vote will take place. If the bill passes the next cloture then it will move to the Senate floor for open debate and the final up or down vote.

Following is a list of republican Senators who voted for reviving this bad legislation :

Bennett (R-UT), Bond (R-MO), Brownback (R-KS), Burr (R-NC), Coleman (R-MN), Collins (R-ME), Craig (R-ID), Domenici (R-NM), Ensign (R-NV), Graham (R-SC), Gregg (R-NH), Hagel (R-NE), Kyl (R-AZ), Lott (R-MS), Lugar (R-IN), Martinez (R-FL), McCain (R-AZ), McConnell (R-KY), Murkowski (R-AK), Snowe (R-ME), Specter (R-PA), Stevens (R-AK), Voinovich (R-OH), Warner (R-VA).

While the cloture vote does not guarantee final passage of the Amnesty Bill it is an indication that the bill does have a better than average chance of passage unless Senators can be convinced by their constituency to vote against the legislation. The magic number is five. The cloture vote passed with 64 and all that is needed to prevent a filibuster of the measure which will kill the bill is 60 votes. Five more votes against will guarantee the bill will not be passed.

The Senate has revived this bill despite the overwhelming out cry of the people. An out cry which I might add has crossed party lines. Latest polls show that 82% of the American people are against this free ride for illegal aliens, yet Senators are placing their political future on trying to push this bill through.

One of the most telling statements made since the idea of this bill first appeared was made by Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff in an interview on Fox News. Chertoff stated that the bill must be passed during this session of Congress, because it won't be passed in the next session, "because it is an election year."

Whether Chertoff intended to make this very enlightening statement or not is not quite clear but it does reveal the mind set in Washington about this bill. The fact that the bill is being pushed through to completion in a non - election year and that the bill will not pass in an election year, proves that Senators realize that the people DO NOT WANT THIS BILL.

It also shows that they and the White House understand that if this bill is up for any vote during an election year those who favor it face being voted out. How stupid do they think we are and just how short do they believe our memory is ? Regardless of time or year we will remember who voted for this bill and will use our voice at the polls to express our anger and dissatisfaction.

This arrogance on the part of Washington also emphasises the gap between those who are elected and the people they represent. To even think that they have the ability to ram-rod legislation through in a non-election year against the will of the people and that we will forget when they beg for our votes to place them back in their plush offices is an insult to our intelligence and to our duty as an American.

If this bill passes the Senate and I emphasize that it is still not a guarantee to passage, those who vote for it will face the wrath of the people. We still have time to make our voice heard and to remind these arrogant aristocrats who is their boss and who they must answer to under our free Republic and our Representative form of Government.

They in their arrogance may be relentless in forcing bad legislation down our throats but we are the power behind each office on Capitol Hill and we can and must continue to exercise the power of, "We The people of The United States of America!" To quote Winston Churchill, "Never give up, never give in!"

Great post, Ken.

As I've said before, though, I don't think we voters are as much of a factor in this as we're supposed to be. We bombarded our senators with our feelings on the amnesty issue last time out, and they apparently haven't all gotten the message. They still voted to keep the bill active.

Here's the thing -- Amnesty is the central theme here, everything else like securing the border and enforcing employment laws is glued-on incentive to go with the program.

"Look, buy the property as is, collapsing, leaky roof, crumbling foundation, long, wide cracks in the bricks, missing window panes and all, and we'll throw in some beautiful office furniture, pay your first year's electric bills and paint the kitchen."

Today's politicians seem to be living in their own dimension, they are not only out of touch with the will of The People, they also believe that they can always talk themselves back into our good graces, no matter what their transgressions.

I wonder if carne asada will soon join rib-eyes and strips as regulars on American steak house menus.
