I understand the district Scott Brown (R-MA) is coming from: A liberal bastion with a seat that Ted amnesty Kennedy held for decades. But he ran on a platform of not following the current liberal agenda. Was it all a ruse?
Brown stated last week that he wants to work with Democrats on comprehensive immigration reform. This is the same guy that said he would push for restrictions on illegal immigration and considered aspects of the DREAM Act to be amnesty. Then again, his Senate site stating his position on immigration begins with, “We are a nation of immigrants…” Always makes be suspicious. He now is willing to work with Democrats who have no interest in compromise at all. Luis Gutierrez made that pretty clear in a statement after his closed door strategy meeting with Barack Obama last week.
Harry Reid has promised to push the DREAM Act. Nancy Pelosi has called illegal aliens patriots while lambasting ICE agents that apprehend them. The Justice Department has torn into Arizona for daring to pass a law that would combat illegal immigration. Joe Arpaio has been stripped of federal authority to make immigration arrests, and is being investigated by the Justice Department at the same time for human rights abuses. The State Department has turned in Arizona to the United Nations, referencing SB 1070. The Department of Homeland Security is turning loose illegal aliens by the thousands because their crimes don’t meet the threshold of seriousness to warrant deportation. Sanctuary cities are ignored. State of the art country club detention centers are being built for the few illegal aliens that actually do warrant arrest. Illegal aliens are openly campaigning for the very politicians that would debate reform. States issue driver’s licenses for illegal aliens with impunity. The TSA spends their days in grandma’s crotch while illegal aliens obtain pilots licenses and fly American skies. School kids are not allowed to display the American flag for fear of an ethnic uprising. Yet Scott Brown indicates that he wants to negotiate with these people.
Is he that obtuse, or is he just trying quiet his critics? After all, there have been pro amnesty protesters outside his office demanding he do something. It’s hard to say, but we can go by what he’s done so far in the Senate. He just voted for cloture on S.510, the Food Safety Modernization Act that would devastate the small food grower and allow Homeland Security to dictate what you could grow and sell from your backyard. Yes, the same Homeland Security that boasts the TSA. You can’t make this up.
Scott Brown needs to understand that the left has an agenda, and there is no compromise. In case he hasn’t noticed, the Democrats have made that very clear, and will do anything they want if they don’t need Republican votes. Compromising with them is just playing into their hands. Saying no is what got him elected. Maybe a quick fax or e-mail will remind Brown of what got him elected in the first place. It wasn’t being like Kennedy. He was elected because he was not like Kennedy.
Sure, I can accept rookie mistakes, but the American people need to step in and point out those mistakes when they’re made. You can contact Scott here.
