    We're definitely moving from Twilight to Dusk and soon to the pitch black of a Moonless Midnight.

    Our elections are rigged even before the General Election, as the primary candidates uniformly share a "cheap labor" agenda with their corporate benefactors... Whether a Democratic or Republican primary, almost all candidates support unlimited immigration.

    This is extraordinary given that a 2004 study by CCFR (Chicago Council on Foreign Relations) found that 92% of Americans think we should reduce illegal immigration... Also, Americans have felt this way for several decades.

    In the 2004 election, the re-election rate for the U.S. House of Representatives was 99% (excluding the 4 seats lost to re-districting in Texas.).. Incumbents have about a 10 to 1 advantage in Campaign Fund Raising, making it nearly impossible for challengers to win.

    Despite all the serious talk about Campaign Finance Reform, there's very little to show for it... Somehow I doubt the incumbents in Congress will reform the election process in any way which will reduce the ability of incumbents to get re-elected.

    This is why we need Direct Democracy... Here's a site that's dedicated towards a National Initiative for Democracy which would "equip the people with the central power of government, lawmaking ... in every government jurisdiction of the United States."
    http://www.ni4d.us (also, http://www.vote.org)
    When the number of "yes" votes exceeds 50,000,000, the National Initiative becomes the law of the land.
    I voted for this Initiative... If enough people vote for it, then we'll reach the 50 million mark and then Ballot Initiatives will be a much more available option in local and state governments... In addition, for the first time ever, we would be able to have U.S. Ballot Initiatives so that we could sidestep Congress... Perhaps, we could appropriate more resources for enforcing our immigration laws... Sky's the limit!!!

    I am telling you most Americans have no idea this is happening. I mean in CA they do, but everywhere else, people are clueless. I tell people here in TX about Special Order 40 in CA that forbids law enforcement to ask immigration status , and they look at me like I'm lying or making it up. A year ago I was clueless too!! We will solve this illegal immigration problem by casting light on it. How amazing our president dogs the Minute Men but doesn't say a word about Vicente Fox printing up comicbooks to help illegals break into the uS. This guy needs to be impeached.

    Roger on the impeach part: right in line behind Phylis Hamilton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sandra Day O'Connor, the 4 MASS supreme court judges, etc, etc, etc. Bush and the so-called conservative Republicans will have impeached themselves if America wakes up to not voting for the lesser of 2 weevils.

    Vote Constitution Party.

    Thanks for the welcoming committee (DonQuixote, ALIPAC)!!!

    This seems like a good place with a good bunch of people here... So, I may stay awhile.

    In my previous post, I basically explained (in editorial fashion) why I'm drawn to the issue of "illegal immigration.".. For me, it's more than just about reducing immigration, it's about who should have the right to decide our immigration policy.

    Right now, it seems like there's a full-court press (kind of like those kids surrounded by the Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park) against the American People... The full range and power of the Elite (The Ruling Class) including government, corporations, media, universities, celebrities, etc are totally in favor of unlimited immigration... Yet, the American people are completely against it.

    So, it's really an engaging Democratic struggle, where the elite believe they have the right to overrule what the vast majority of Americans want... Furthermore, they see no need to explain their position... They believe they have the right to force it down our throats.

    It's an issue that people feel passionate about and encourages Democratic participation... It will be hard work to win on this issue and will take broad engagement of the American people, but I think that we can get this engagement... Furthermore, I hope that as people become more involved, they will want to get involved in other issues...

    In other words, I hope that by winning on this issue, we will break the backs of The Ruling Class (The Oligarchy), which will herald in a new era of genuine democracy... By the time we're done, the Oligarchy will have wished they had caved on this issue, rather than resisting and fueling a democratic movement, which will spread to many other issues.

    So, who should have the right to decide our immigration policy?.. Clearly, the People, and I want to work to make that point loud and clear, especially to our Illegitimate Rulers, even if we have to force it down their throats.
