Jobs Americans Won’t Do

Posted by Dan Draney on October 24, 2010

Socialist Patty Murray has discovered that it’s OK to exploit illegal aliens in service of her own bid to cling to power. Apparently there really are some Jobs Americans Won’t Do.

The 42-year-old is one of dozens of volunteers — many of them illegal immigrants — canvassing neighborhoods in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for candidates like Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who is in a neck-to-neck race with Republican Dino Rossi.

Pramila Jayapal, head of OneAmerica Votes, says the campaign is about empowering immigrants who may not feel like they can contribute to a campaign because they can’t vote.

“Immigrants really do matter,” Jayapal said. “If we can’t vote ourselves, we’re gonna knock on doors, or get family members to vote.”

So far the illegal immigrants going door-to-door aren’t meeting opposition. Craig Keller, an organizer for Respect WA, a group pushing for stricter immigration law in the Washington, said he doesn’t mind illegal immigrants volunteering for vote drives, he just wants to make sure mistakes on the voter rolls don’t allow them to vote.

Give Me Liberty TV Interview with Governor Heineman

Posted by Dan Draney on September 4, 2010

Nebraska Governor David Heineman sits down with GML-TV’s W. A. Mitchell. The Governor talks about the state budget, federal spending, illegal immigration, the Cornhusker Kickback, and the states’ lawsuit against the ObamaCare “individual mandate.” Will he challenge Sen. Ben Nelson in 2014? He doesn’t say so, but he sounds like someone who’s thinking a lot about what a Nebraska senator needs to do.

Open Reply to Scott Brown Fundraising Email

Posted by Dan Draney on March 5, 2010

When I heard of the progress Scott Brown was making in the campaign for Senate in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, I made a small contribution to the effort. Along with thousands of other Teaparty folk around the country, I was exhilarated when he pulled off the stunning upset. Since then I have received the occasional update and request for additional money. Tonight I sent this reply.

I’m one of the small contributors from around the nation who helped you break through against the Mass. Democrat Machine. Like most of us, I was disappointed at your quick adaptation to business as usual in Washington. We don’t need “reaching across the aisle” to agree on more spending of money we don’t have on things we don’t need.

I won’t rule out contributing to your next campaign, but you’ll have to earn it through your actions. Show leadership against wasteful spending. Resist tax increases, even as part of “bargains” over spending cuts. Experience shows the cuts never materialize, but the taxes do.

There are limits, of course, to what we can reasonably expect of a New England Republican today. I didn’t expect Jim DeMint or Eric Cantor, but someone to the right of Collins and Snowe would be nice.
