Patriot Groups throughout Arizona
I've joined this group in an attempt to find open minded citizens that realize we are in trouble. I've belonged to four other groups and watched them first grow then fail and disappear. American Citizens United (USA) is a perfect example. The group grew quickly then fell into disarray. In the six years of its existence USA accomplished not a single thing. Yet it was filled with talented, bright and forward thinking members. Two other groups went the same way. Now the Tea partiers and 9-12 groups have formed. As I attend those meetings I see the exact same problems occurring: leadership that will not include the membership. Several weeks ago the "leader" of a local group "waved down" an elderly gentleman that was upset with illegals. I was astonished by such rude behavior. During the lunch breaks the group members were united in the commonality of their fears regarding illegal immigration. Yet our leader waved away our concerns so he could talk about what interested him: taxes. Six months have passed and that topic is still the only one he talks about. And not a single thing of relevance has been accomplished. When I speak up I too receive the "Off topic wave." However, whenever I do speak up it is the membership that commends me and asks me to speak out again. Taxes are not the problem. Corruption within our government is.
These groups are powerful but you all are failing to recognize that. You are also failing to understand how to effectively utilize that power to save this country. The illegals are not making this mistake.
Several years ago I saw a Spanish radio station conducting voter registration drives at a Food City in Phoenix. I recognized what was happening. There was no regard for citizenship in these drives. Why? Because they know we will abide by election results. Therefore these people are free to vote their racism into power. They do not vote for a Smith or Jones or McAllister. They vote only Spanish surnames like Grijalva, Garcia, etc. And none of us say a thing. When have any of you seen a single case of voter fraud being prosecuted against an illegal? Never.
Have any of you attended meetings of illegals? I have. Their hatred, bigotry and racism is unparalleled. Yet it's never discussed. We talk only of the plight brought to us by groups like the KKK or Skinheads. In LA latino groups have actively engaged in racial cleansing of neighborhoods targeting African-Americans. Have you seen these reports on the radio or TV news? Nope. We only complain about taxes and the school board.
When these people are allowed to vote (and they will. remember Napolitano was a supporter of motor-voter and advocated for them being given driver's licenses) what do you think is going to happen to your country? Need the answer to be spelled out for you? Simple. MEXICO. We as a people have failed to look at the culture and adequately define it in terms we all can understand.
The United States is only 30 or so years older than Mexico yet look at what we've done with this country and what they've done with theirs. They will do the same to us. Not because we are biologically superior to them but because they have a different culture. The "drug lords" in Mexico are not Russian, Chinese, African, Italian, Irish, etc. They are Mexican. But the local news REFUSES to call them "citizens of Mexico dealing in drugs and poisoning our children." They are "drug lords" not Mexicans. But we always say the Russians did this or that. The Japanese did this in the war. The Irish bombed this pub or that one. Remember, the Mexican economy is supported by the drug trade. Poisoning us is an economic machine. When a drug dealer is gunned down, the local community writes and sings folk songs honoring this piece of filth. What is the hallmark of every culture that has existed throughout history? Trade routes. There are estimates that as many as 50 million (it appears that the government is intentionally underestimating this number... who knows why) illegals are in this country. Do any of you think the drug lords are not actively supporting illegal immigration into this country? Do any of you think they are not establishing trade routes throughout this country and Canada? But you don't hear that on the news do you.
Obviously I could go on. My point is that we are losing our country. These people are going to vote and soon. Complaining about the government isn't going to change a thing. The Founders gave us the solutions to such problems through their example: The first ten amendments were directed AT the government. We must do the same. Write laws that specifically target the behaviors of people like Pelosi Napolitano and Goddard (he won't prosecute voter fraud) then prosecute them with mandatory sentences. If they won't enforce our laws then they do time. That will save this country.
