Illegal Dreams

The Dream Act has failed.  And, the Democrats act as though justice was NOT served.

How would justice be served by allowing an illegal act to legalize the beginning of  the process of citizenship?  Illegal acts should NOT confer any benefits and citizenship is certainly a benefit!   So, there is no way to justify such a law.   Read the headline below.  The key word is ILLEGAL!

Senate Blocks Bill for Young Illegal Immigrants

Published: December 18, 2010

Democrats don’t seem to understand the Constitution of the United States and frequently steam ahead, as Barbara Boxer promises to do, to get their way.  Witness the passage of Obamacare.  Witness the suppression of any dissent as when they called tea party members by a variety of vile names.

It is past time for our representatives to actually represent us and not try to use political maneuvers, such as the Dream Act,  to stay in office.

Martin Luther King had a dream of equality for everyone, but endorsing an illegal act is giving that criminal more power and rights than the average American citizen.

Congratulations, Congress, for choosing the right answer to whether we follow the Constitution about criminal acts, including illegal aliens, or whether we do whatever suits the politicians of the moment.

The Dream Act was an illegal dream for illegal aliens and a potential nightmare for the rest of us.  Thank goodness for the daylight of common sense that finally permeated Congress’ decision.  The result  makes for pleasant dreams to all of us who believe in the rule of Law, not the rule of politicians!

Grave Robbers

Robbing the dead has happened in many times and many generations.  The ancient Egyptian pharaohs did their best to conceal and protect pharaohs after death.  But, today’s archaeologists know that grave robbers eventually found their way in to almost every burial chamber.

Grave robbing continues even today, except the robbers now wear nice suits and ties, or skirts, and they couch their thievery in platitudes and long-winded speeches. These thieves have nice homes and make a lot of money just by spending someone else’s money.  Who are they?

Congress is the modern equivalent of Egyptian grave robbers.  In fact, the Democrats in Congress have passed legislation in the dead of night, just like the thieves of long ago!  Democrats claim that the estate tax is not a death tax and it is unfair for someone to save during their lifetime with the hope of passing it on to heirs, or charities of their OWN choice.  Even though everyone’s estate has been taxed multiple times through income tax, capital gains taxes, sales taxes, use taxes, fees, alternative income taxes,  yada yada, Congress still believes it has a right to YOUR money! Even after you play by all the rules of the living,  Democrats  claim you have NO RIGHT to decide where your money goes after you die.

Democrats fail to understand that what a person earns during their lifetime is NOT Congress’ money or even the nation’s wealth.  Those hard-earned dollars belong to the person who earned them.  And, if that worker decides he wants to scrimp and save in order to leave an inheritance for his children, so be it.

The estate tax, the worst kind of DEATH tax,  is an abomination because the assets have already been taxed over and over. And, there is NO legitimate explanation Congress can provide as to why they should be able to take money from the dead, even as they are taxing the living into oblivion.

Putting money into your children’s future should NOT provide a honey pot for a Congress that spends recklessly and cannot adhere to any kind of a budget. The estate tax should never have happened.  It truly is a DEATH tax.

Tell Congress we are already taxed too much.  Tell Congress they spend too much of our tax dollars just on their personal hobby horses. Tell Congress to keep their hands out of our pockets….whether those pockets are walking around or lying in a coffin!
