 GLENN BECK: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona . She writes an
                                open letter to our nation's  leadership:



   "I  am a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt theDemocratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or
                                works to pursue issues important to me. The fact
                                is I no longer feel any
                                political party or representative in Washington
                                represents my views or works to pursue the
                                issues important to me.   Instead, we
                                are burdened with Congressional Dukes and
                                Duchesses who think they know better than the
                                citizens they are supposed to represent. 
                                

                               There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. 

                               Please stand up and tell me that you are there
                                and that you're willing to fight for our
                                Constitution as it was written. Please stand
                                up now. 
 
                                
                                                                
                                You might ask yourself what my views and issues are
                                that I would feel so horribly disenfranchised by
                                both major political parties. What kind of
                                nut-job am I? Well, these briefly are the views
                                and issues for which I seek
                                representation: 

                                One, illegal immigration.

 

                                I want you to stop
                                coddling illegal immigrants and secure our
                                borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop
                                the violence and the trafficking in drugs and
                                people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done
                                that, no resolution. P.S., I'm not a racist.
                                This is not to be confused with legal
                                immigration.


                                Two, the STIMULUS bill.


                                I want it repealed and I want no further
                                funding supplied to it. We told you No, but you
                                did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95%
                                repealed. Freeze, repeal.


                                Three: Czars.


                                I want the circumvention of our
                                constitutional checks and balances
                                stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more
                                czars. Government officials answer to the
                                process, not to the president. Stop trampling on
                                our Constitution, and honor it.


                                Four, cap and trade.


                                The debate on global warming is not over. There
                                are many conflicting opinions and it is too soon
                                for this radical legislation. Quit throwing
                                our nation into politically-correct
                                quicksand.


                                Five, universal healthcare.


                                I will not be rushed into another expensive
                                decision that will burden me, my children, and
                                grandchildren. Don't you dare try to pass this
                                in the middle of the night without even reading
                                it. Slow down!  Fix only what is
                                broken -- we have the best health care
                                system in the world -- and test any new program
                                in one or two states first.


                                Six,  growing government control.


                                I want states rights and sovereignty
                                fully restored. I want less government in my
                                life, not more. More is not better! Shrink
                                it down. Mind your own business.  You have
                                enough to take care of with your real
                                [Constitutional] obligations. Why don't you
                                start there.


                                Seven,  ACORN.

 

                                I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in
                                charge of our 2010 census.
                                I want them investigated. I also do not want
                                mandatory escrow fees contributed
                                to them every time on every real estate deal
                                that closes
                                -- how did they pull that one off?  
                                Stop the funding to ACORN and its
                                affiliates pending impartial audits and
                                investigations. I do not trust them with taking
                                the census with our taxpayer money. I don't
                                trust them with any of our taxpayer money. Face
                                up to the allegations against them and get it
                                resolved before taxpayers get any more involved
                                with them. If it walks like a duck and talks
                                like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your
                                political buddies. You work for us, the
                                people. Investigate.


                                Eight, redistribution of wealth.


                                No, no, no. I work for my money. It is
                                mine. I have always worked for people with
                                more money than I have because they gave me
                                jobs -- and that is the only redistribution
                                of wealth that I will support. I never got a job
                                from a poor person! Why do you want me to hate
                                my employers? And what do you have against
                                shareholders making a profit?


                                Nine, charitable contributions..


                                Although I never got a job from a poor person, I
                                have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our
                                local communities, where we know our needs best
                                and can use our local talent and our local
                                resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it
                                ourselves.


                                Ten, corporate bailouts.


                                Knock it off. Every company must sink or swim
                                like the rest of us. If there are hard times
                                ahead, we'll be better off just getting into it
                                and letting the strong survive. Quick and
                                painful. (Have you ever ripped off a Band-Aid?)
                                We will pull together.. Great things happen in
                                America under great hardship. Give us the chance
                                to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than
                                you have disappointed us.


                                Eleven,  transparency and accountability.


                                How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's
                                have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest
                                and have some straight honest talk. Please stop
                                trying to manipulate and appease me with
                                clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously
                                take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in
                                back rooms making deals with your friends. It
                                will only be a prelude to your criminal
                                investigation. Stop hiding things from
                                me.


                                Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.


                                Take a breath. Listen to the people. Slow down and
                                get some input from nonpoliticians and experts
                                on the subject. Stop making everything an
                                emergency. Stop speed-reading our bills into
                                law. I am not an activist. I am not a community
                                organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a
                                violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent.
                                I work. I'm busy.  I am busy, and I am
                                tired. I thought we elected competent people to
                                take care of the business of government so
                                that we could work, raise our families, pay our
                                bills, have a little recreation, complain about
                                taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal
                                goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the
                                weekends and be responsible contributing members
                                of society and teach our children to be the same
                                all while living in the home of the free and
                                land of the brave.


                                I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I
                                believed in the checks and balances to keep from
                                getting far off course. What
                                happened?
                                You are very far off course. Do you really think
                                I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to
                                unintelligently ramble all through a bill that
                                you signed into law without knowing what it
                                contained? I do not. 
                                

    `                           It is a mockery of the responsibility I have
                                entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am
                                not laughing at your arrogance.
                                Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust
                                me to make a single decision about my own life
                                and how I would live it but you should expect
                                that I should trust you with the debt that you
                                have laid on all of us and our children. We did
                                not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would
                                repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still
                                cannot. There is needless urgency and
                                recklessness in all of your recent spending of
                                our tax dollars.


                                From my perspective, it seems that all of you have
                                gone insane. I also know that I am far from
                                alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel
                                that your current pursuits have merit to
                                patriotic Americans? We want it to stop.
                                We want to put the brakes on everything that is
                                being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want
                                our voice back.. You have forced us to put our
                                lives on hold to straighten out the mess that
                                you are making. We will have to give up our
                                vacations, our time spent with our children, any
                                relaxation time we may have had and money we
                                cannot afford to spend on bringing our concerns
                                to Washington . Our president often knows all
                                the right buzzwords like unsustainable. Well, no
                                kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars
                                did the focus group cost to come up with that
                                word? We don't want your overpriced words. Stop
                                treating us like we're morons.


                                We want all of you to stop focusing on your
                                reelection and do the job we want done, not the
                                job you want done or the job your party wants
                                done. You work for us and at this rate I
                                guarantee you not for long because we are
                                coming. We will be heard and we will be
                                represented.. You think we're so busy with our
                                lives that we will never come for you? We are
                                the formerly silent majority, all of us who
                                quietly work, pay taxes, obey the law, vote,
                                save money, keep our noses to the grindstone...
                                and we are now looking at you. 
                                
                                You have awakened us, the patriotic freedom spirit
                                so strong and so powerful that it had been
                                sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far.
                                Our numbers are great. They may surprise you.
                                For every one of us who will be there, there
                                will be hundreds more that could not come.
                                Unlike you, we have their trust. We will
                                represent them honestly, rest assured. They will
                                be at the polls on voting day to usher you out
                                of office.

 We have canceled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots
                                campaign will flourish.

We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not
                                come in violence, but we are angry. You will
                                represent us or you will be replaced with
                                someone who will.

There are candidates among us who will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution. 
                                
                                
          Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian.

Understand this. We don't care.

Political parties are meaningless to us

Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution,
                                and that is all that matters to us now.

 We are  going to fire all of you who abuse power and
                                seek more. It is not your power. It is
                                ours and we want it back. We entrusted you
                                with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable.
                                You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed
                                of you. You have brought shame to us.


If you are not representing the wants and needs of
                                your constituency loudly and consistently, in
                                spite of the objections of your party, you will
                                be fired.

Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them.. Because we will get you fired
                                and they will not save you. 
 
                                                                

If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views,please stand up. Make your identity known

You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are                                                                                            

If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one.

We are coming.coming."Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? 
What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming, We the people are comingflagI cound not believe that this woman has summed up exactly what we want this Administration to do, and if they are smart they will take this action and follow it so they will not be voted out in 2010!

Listen up Washington or be voted out in 2010 or sooner!

Mary -

Can't help you.  I disagree on number one.  And since it is your number one....

And I disagree with the tactics called for.

"Coming for them" is not enough.  In fact it's silly.

Finding a candidate for Congress and backing that person all the way from now to November 2010 is required ...and in 100 Congressional districts (not the 100 most conservative but the one hundred on the margin)...or maybe even in fifty.

There is no marginal district in the country where all 12 of your points will find majority acceptance.

The first one of the 12 that you need to to throw out is ...your number one.

That's because many of the Hispanic immigrants you don't want ...actually agree with many of the other items on your list.

That's also because, those same Latinos comprise an essential voting bloc in many of those marginal districts.

Without them working with you, you can forget about almost all the other items on your list.

 

And BTW:  with most who agree with this woman's number 1....it is all about race.

Because if it were just about legality, amnesty would fix the problem.

Mary,

I don't respond much on these posts, but this one brought tears to my eyes....Very moving and powerful. I will be sharing this immediately. This woman most certainly speaks for me. If the rest of the citzens do not "awaken" to what is happening under the cloak of darkenss, our great country is surely doomed.

Thank you so much for sharing this!

Mary - I got this same letter via e-mail this morning, and I'm in complete agreement with its author.

  

And Jim - I'm afraid you're in for a rude awakening.  The issue is illegal immigration - regardless of race, country of origin, etc.  And countless polls taken over the past several years show an overwhelming number of voters are adamantly against granting any kind of amnesty for those now here illegally, no matter who they are, or where they came from.

There's no way we'll stand for another amnesty, of any kind - all the last one did was encourage millions more to enter illegally, and hide in the shadows, hoping and waiting to get in on the next amnesty - it's not going to happen.

And this statement of yours, " That's also because, those same Latinos comprise an essential voting bloc in many of those marginal districts.", is a perfect example of the problem.  Remember, we're talking about illegals - non-citizens, who by law, can't vote - and yet far too many of them do!

And as for this statement, " There is no marginal district in the country where all 12 of your points will find majority acceptance.", you might want to take another look at what's going on with the "Tea Party" movements, and check the latest 16 Gallup polls, which show that Conservatives now outnumber Liberals by 2 to 1.

We're taking our Country back!

Jeff,

Thank you for saying to Jim what I wanted to say. My emotion tends to get the best of me when dealing with issues like this and although I started a rather lengthy response to Jim's accusation of racism, I thought better of it...I'm TIRED of being labeled a racist by people just because I disagree with amnesty for ANYONE here ILLEGALLY.

Jim, You have been listening to The Extreme Liberals slant for Political Correctness, It's garbage` This racist line is getting old they need a new lingo. Big Corporations are employing the illegal workers and this is why we won't see anything change.

This greed and pc are the same thoughts that are destroying America and did not stop the Terriorist Jihad sympathizer at Fort Hood.

Thank you all for your gracious and enthutiastic comments

Jeff you took the words right out of my mouth too!

Micki, I think that most of us were silent and did not respond until we have been forced to take a stand by this Government's distructive agenda and propaganda that has been shown to be untrue. Our grandparents and past generations had to come into this country legally so do they but big corporations are using them so they are destroying our economy from the inside out.

Vote them out in 2010 or sooner, we are making a difference!

Mary -

Actually, it's not just the big corporations that are employing "illegals". 

Just like all the rest of the work-force:    It's small businesses all over the country who have a hard time finding "Americans" who want to work for what they can afford to pay.

I have not been listening to "the liberals".  I have been reading the election results.  Those speak for themselves.  They speak the truth whether a person wants to hear it or not.

Jeff -

One of us is simply hearing what we want to hear...out there on the hustings.  I don't think it's me.

The website to which you link says poll after poll proves the public supports a pro-enforcement, anti-amnesty position.  The website does itself link to poll after to poll taken by established firms...and cherry-picking (at best) what those polls say.

For example, the most recent poll it mentions:  The website says an April, 2009 poll confirms it's view.  It gives a link.  Here is what the text of that linked report really says:

In another new high, 61 percent now support giving illegal immigrants “the right to live
here legally if they pay a fine and meet other requirements.”

That’s up from 49 percent in 2007 to a substantial majority for the first time.

In this case support is up more sharply among Republicans, a 17-point gain to 59 percent, than among Democrats, up 9 points to 68 percent. It’s up 14 points among independents.

Yes, most Americans want good border enforcement.  Some want it so we can keep out Latinos.  But others simply want it so we can keep out terrorists.

And:   Yes, most Americans support letting the millions now here stay if they pay some penalty for coming here illegally.  Most Americans see no point in keeping those folks in the shadows of our economy and society.

 

You are not going to "take the country back" until you accept the votes of those Latino citizens who helped elect George Bush.

Mary:

I know you speak from a Christian perspective.

Here is mine:

After saying we should love our neighbors as ourselves, Christ was asked, "And who is my neighbor?"

His answer may be the most famous parable of them all:

 

A man fell among thieves on the road from Jericho to Jerusalem.  The road was not much more than a (one-lane) trail at the time of Christ.

The man was lying there beside the road.  Passers-by had to nearly step over someone in that position.  The man was passed-by by two men...leaders of the Jews - very religious in their background and demeanor. 

They did not stop to help.

A third man came along and helped the man - to the extent of taking him to an Inn and paying for his extended care, promising the inn-keeper that he would pay any additional amount due the next time he travelled the road.

Christ said the third man, the clear hero of his story, was a Samaritan.  The Jews hated the Samaritans.  They considered them to be less worthy for a host of historical, religious reasons.

In fact, in those days, the Jews would go far out of their way  - many miles - to stay out of Samaria on their way from the Sea of Gallilee to Jerusalem - travelling much of the distance on the East side of the Jordan River - and often through (not coincidentally?) the town of Jericho.

Christ asked the man to whom he was speaking, "Who was neighbor" to the wounded man.

The answer was obvious.  We were all told to go and do like wise.

The Samaritans, occupants of what we now call "the West Bank" were the neighbors to the Jews of Jesus's time.

(The Palestinians are their descendants today.)

We are commanded to love our neighbors as ourselves.  It is the Second Great Commandment.

 

The people living across the Rio Grande are our neighbors.

Mary -

One more thought:

 

Our ancestors did NOT all have to "come here legally". 

Mine were all here before the Revolution - even the Irish among them.

There was no law regarding immigration whatsoever.....until the 1890's when we had a lot of Chinese here building our railroads in the West (including here in Oregon)...and doing our laundry all over the country.  Their presence was suddenly called the Yellow Peril.  It was all about race...and religion.

Congress reacted by passing the first immigration limitation.

Many of my ancestors came as indentured servants - paying for their ticket on some leaky old boat with seven years of voluntary servitude.  Do you think they would have been stopped by some puny river no matter how Grande? 

Do you think they would have been stopped by some fence no matter how high?

They very likely would not have been stopped by a law either.
