Mitch McConnell R KY has already got a call from me, I will campaign for any one running against him at this point, he can't listen to the voters, he needs to go.

Thank goodness both of mine listened to us, Mary Landreiu was originally going to vote yes but then changed to a loud NO vote.

Let the Senate gloat. The bill will die along with the Senate careers. The House will not pass the measure. They are already feeling the heat from their constituency and Nancy Pelosi has stated that without majority Republican support in the House, she won't even bring it to the floor for a vote, and according to Tom Tancredo, the support is not there.

Not all is lost

There is another vote Thursday.

Now is the time to tell your elected traitors that if this passes, they'll find themselves out of a job

CONTINUE HAMMERING THEM! HARD!

Thankfully, both Texans voted against this. I don't understand how anyone in a border state can vote for it. McCain's vote for it just cost him any chance he had of me ever voting for him. The Republican Party called here a few days ago asking for money. No way! I will support the person that I select, not the party, and it is about time that we as citizens start speaking with both our money and our votes! Maybe then, the politicians will remember that they are supposed to serve the people -- not their careers or their party.

I'm glad she changed her mind - I guess she could see that the French/Creole culture of New Orleans is now being overwhelmed by illegals. We are going to lose something unique in the whole world.

I wouldn't be so sure about Landreiu, she voted to kill Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's amendment to send illegals back to their home country to apply for citizenship today. Keep letting her know that she needs to vote against cloture on Thursday.

Guys there are some "killer ammendments" on this bill that could derail the whole amnesty in the Senate!! SO LET'S NOT GIVE UP YET AND CONTINUE TO HAMMER THE MORONS IN THE US SENATE WITH TELEPHONE CALLS, E-MAILS, AND FAXES (NumbersUSA) AND LET'S FIGHT TO VICTORY AGAINST AMNESTY!! They are (in sum):

1. The Menendez (D-NJ) ammendment: this would allow every family member of the illegal alien in the US to come here legally, thefore allowing somewhere around the vicinity of 130 million immigrants to come in in the next 20 years (instead of 80 million coming in per this amnesty).

2. The Hutichinson: have illegals to have to leave and come back. THis ammendment was killed and this will draw even more Republicans OUT of this deal.

3. Thune (R-ND). This will make it hard for liberals to take this bill.... if they kill this ammendment, the Republicans will continue to pull away from this horrendous bill and it will lose steam.

Guys BERNIE SANDERS (I-VT), a QUASI-COMMUNIST is strongly opposed to the amnesty bill... I mean this is a liberal extremist opposed to this bill because even though he might be an extreme Socialist, he doesn't want to see America destroyed...... what does it tell you???? I'd say that Bush and Ted Kennedy (D-MA) are doign everything they can to ruin this country. It is sickening!!

Thumbs down Here is the "traitor's list" of Senators.

Guys, Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) are up for re-election in 2008. Can we get some decent conservative Democrats to step up to the plate and defeat these 2 Republicans?? Or can we get 2 Republican challengers to defeat these 2 traitors and destroyers of American culture??

Here is the list: U.S. Senate: Legislation & Records Home > Votes > Roll Call Vote


Check to see if your senator voted Yea (pro-amnesty) or Nay (anti-amnesty). Then call them and slam them... be polite to the staffers and make sure to have your home zip code ready. Call at least twice and if you get the same staffers, hang up and call again. Make sure you speak to two different staffers of each Senator and let them know you oppose this bill and you are angry the Senator wants to sell out America.

Thank you.
