    Politics, Payoffs and Pimps!

    Have you ever worked for a political candidate, spent endless hours working on their campaign, contributed "big bucks" to them and finally voted for the candidate in hopes of changing our dysfunctional immigration policies, only to later review their performance and ask yourself "Why?"

    The majority of our elected officials show no leadership whatever on the matter of immigration reform. During their campaign we hear "...if elected, I'll do it" or "...you are absolutely right about this issue and if elected, I will take a stand." Fast forward to their swearing-in day plus 6 months, and most have earned their "F-" grade, fair and square.

    Beginning with my first grade-school class in civics and government, I learned that Americans are governed by "We the people" who elect representatives to serve our interest by passing laws conforming with the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. During the fifteen years-plus that I've been involved in the immigration reform movement, I've seen the exact opposite.

    Our elected offices at local, state, and national levels are over-populated with career politicians rather than leaders. These bums want nothing more than a second career after retirement and all the accompanying perks (specifically, a lucrative health and pension plan). If that weren't bad enough, their children are groomed as "heirs to the elitist throne" to someday step into their job. Here in Colorado, we see it frequently.

    With the beginning of the 2006 election cycle, Americans must unite, do our homework on both incumbents and newly announced candidates. Candidates who are "new kids on the block" must be reminded that 'We the People' not only employ them but we will be watching and reporting their voting records. With the exception of a few good men in Washington and perhaps our local government, it's time to "throw the bums out."

    The NumbersUSA.com website publishes incumbents' voting records on immigration issues for all to see. These records show that most have done nothing more than mouth the same rhetoric while faithfully walking their Party Line which places Party before Country.

    "We the People" know this SOP is wrong, yet we tolerate this crappolla election after election, returning the sames bums to local, state and federal office for years and even decades.

    The arrogance of our politicians has alienated Americans from politics and steered them away from our republican form of government. The country is fractured while American citizens refused to place their confidence in these "no can do" politicians. But what choice do Americans have--they can't vote for candidates who aren't on the ballot?

    More than any other time in our history, America needs leaders willing to take a bold public position on critical issues; leaders who set aside politics and payoffs. Americans will no longer sit idly on their hands while their country goes down the drain while they pay the tab.

    In 2006 we have a chance to "kick the bums out of office."

    Americans need to stop hesitating and "Just do It."
