Cross posted from Take Back Georgia
Since i'm light-years behind on my e-mails, I'm going to multi-task and cross-post some articles from the CAII AND feature some *Action Alert* items that have come to me personally. (I still can't upload photos here – so for the full post – visit me on MySpace.
Read carefully, ACT where you can, and keep up the good fight for America!!
FINALLY – people have to actually show a birth certificate or passport before getting Government-funded healthcare? What took them so long?
Here's a great post from Freedom Watch regarding Bush's little PR ride to the border. Remember – MS-13 is a growing gang problem here in Gainesville and has ties to Al Queda.
Oh, boy – this article from Bright and Early makes me want to…vomit? Whining and complaining about how the illegals are mistreated and underpaid while working to rebuilt Louisiana. Umm…how 'bout they CHOSE to be there AND they are working ILLEGALY! GET OVER IT!
In Georgia news, Senator Isakson stands firm with wanting to secure the border first before doing anything else about illegal immigration.
*ACTION ALERT* K.S. from Evansville, Indiana says they have a new potential candidate for Senator – RICK HALE – and that is strong on illegal immigration. HOWEVER, he needs 30,000 signatures from registered Indiana voters to get his name on the ballot. Please HELP and visit his site. now!
Rundown on Rick Hale (Thanks, KS!)
Rick On The Issues
I support a strong national defense, and September 11th demonstrated that national defense extends beyond a large and powerful military. The agencies at the federal, state, and local levels must all work together more efficiently and share information so as to best protect the citizens of the United States.
In keeping with a respect for the rule of law and insistence on a high level of national security, I support the placement of a secure and well-maintained fence on the southern border with Mexico, as well as anywhere else our border is insecure
I believe that Americans are overtaxed and that tax rates should be reduced
I oppose an inheritance tax at any level of government. The government has no business raiding the gifts of loved ones who have passed away.
I oppose property taxes at any level of government. Taxpayers should not have to pay a ransom in order to keep their own property.
RACIAL AND SEXUAL NON-DISCRIMINATION
I support absolute equality between the races. A person should not enjoy an advantage by nature of being a member of a certain ethnic group, nor should that person suffer any disadvantage for being of that group. Every person must be judged solely on his or her merits, with no attention given to race
I support absolute equality between the sexes. A person should not enjoy an advantage by nature of being a member of a certain sex, nor should that person suffer any disadvantage for being a member of that sex. Every person must be judged solely on his or her merits, with no attention given to his or her sex
AMERICAN JOBS AND LABOR RELATIONS
I oppose the “offshoring” of American jobs. I also oppose the importation of foreign workers to take jobs that Americans want but will not take for the low pay that a foreign worker will accept. I support legislation that will remove the economic incentive for abandoning American workers in pursuit of cheap foreign labor
I recognize the value of labor unions. They were the driving force behind the elimination of child labor practices, they helped raise the standard of living for many Americans, they helped establish the number of hours in a standard work week, and they are responsible for many other positive things that many workers now take for granted. I support the right of labor unions to negotiate for fair wages (as determined by market forces), benefits, and working conditions for its members. I oppose discriminating based on union membership, or non-membership, in employing or keeping workers. I take the position that labor unions, when engaged in collective bargaining, should always keep in focus the employer’s need to remain competitive. The union’s goal should be nothing more nor less than a fair and safe working arrangement for employees.
I insist on immigration enforcement that results in the removal from the United States of any person found to be here illegally.
I oppose amnesty for illegal aliens. Any plan which allows illegal aliens to remain in the country, or which gives them the opportunity to come back into the U.S. ahead of those people who are waiting to enter legally, is amnesty.
I support the requirement that all employers use the Basic Pilot Program, which allows employers easily to check the legal status of their employees. After that program is in widespread use, I support heavy fines for employers who employ illegal aliens
I oppose the practice of bestowing citizenship on any person born of parents who are in the United States illegally.
To protect Americans’ rights and freedoms, I support a Constitutional amendment that establishes original intent/original meaning as the required philosophy for interpreting the law. In keeping with that approach, which was the expectation of the founders of our nation –
I support the sovereignty of the individual states when addressing issues over which the Constitution grants the federal government no authority (see the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution).
If the nation as a whole wishes to address an issue, it should do so by means of the amendment process laid out in the Constitution of the United States
I support the issue of abortion being returned to the individual states for the people to decide. If the nation as a whole wishes to address the issue of abortion, it should do so by means of the amendment process laid out in the Constitution of the United States
I support the right to keep and bear arms, as well as the vigorous prosecution of anyone who uses those arms in the commission of a crime
I oppose the use of eminent domain as a means of transferring one private citizen’s or organization’s property to another private citizen or organization, for any reason.
I oppose those campaign finance laws that restrict the speech of private citizens and/or their political organizations.
I support the display of the Ten Commandments on public property.
I support the continued presence of the words “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance
I oppose any and all treaties that affect the sovereignty of the United States or the freedom of the people of the United States. The authority of Congress and the President is derived from the Constitution, and neither the President nor Congress may do anything other than amend that Constitution to alter its effect
THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE
I support recognizing that English is the official language of the U.S. All ballots, signs, and government documents should be in English. I oppose the use of tax dollars to accommodate those who do not speak the English language
I support the creation of a means by which a judge and/or Supreme Court Justice may be put to a “no confidence” vote, whereby he can be removed based on his receiving less than 50% of the popular vote. The “no confidence” vote would be offered as a ballot initiative.
I support the creation of a means by which all senators and congressmen would live and vote from their home states and districts. Communications technology should be implemented to bring this about. Exceptions would be made for cases that require a high level of secrecy (national security issues, for example).
EDUCATING AMERICA’S CHILDREN
I support school choice for every child. What school a child attends ought to be the parents’ decision, not the decision of the government.
Because of its historical significance and its being a profound and concise summary of America’s spirit, I would encourage the following daily recitation by schoolchildren:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
I will fight to ensure the Internet remains an avenue for the unrestricted exchange of information and ideas. I oppose the creation of any system by which some are allowed more or better access to the Internet than others.
I support the development of hydrogen or other clean, alternative energy sources that remove America’s dependence on oil. This is an economic, environmental, political, and national security issue, making the conversion to an alternative energy source one of the United States’ highest priorities

OOOOOOOOOOOOh – you have GOT to read THIS post from Inmuscatine!! Personal experiences from an Accountant dealing with illegal immigrants – you think they pay for services they can never use? THINK AGAIN!
Finally, i'll leave you with Committees of Correspondances' post that features Senator Kennedy whining about why Americans shouldn't have to use a photo I.D. to vote. GOD forbid we have to prove that we're actually LEGALLY voting American Citizens, GAWSH!
