Dear Representative Cantor,

Dear Representative Cantor,

We were appalled to learn that Reps. Paul Ryan, Mick Mulvaney, and Mario Diaz-Balart are about to do an informal whip count on moving “comprehensive” immigration legislation. If this goes well, it is expected that the House Republican leadership will join their skulduggery and hold an official whip count. We cannot understand why these Representatives would go behind the backs of their Republican colleagues and do something that, in the long rung, would harm all Americans.

With 18 million Americans unable to find a full-time job, and tens of millions more Americans having left the workforce in despair, I cannot understand why any Republican Representative would actively work to pass legislation that gives work permits to 11-18 million illegal aliens and doubles legal immigration numbers. How will Americans ever get back to work if the legislation backed by Reps. Mulvaney, Ryan, and Diaz-Balartz passes?

Any immigration legislation passed by the House would give Harry Reid the House-passed immigration legislation he needs to force the Obama/Schumer amnesty on the American people. Please make sure the Mulvaney/Ryan/Diaz-Balart plan doesn’t get off the ground. Please tell the House Republican leadership that it doesn’t have your support.

Unable to comprehend your actions,

Walt & Molly Fitzhugh
Hanover, VA

One Response to “Dear Representative Cantor,”

    So very much could be gained if only conservatives would listen to Laura Ingraham’s wise counsel in the comment she made the other night when she spoke at the Brat event. She left us with words of wisdom if only we would come to terms with the truth she told.

    Eric Cantor could not change his position even if he wanted to. He is owned, bought and paid for by the “donor class” that Ms. Ingraham referred to in her remarks. Very few members of Congress ( or the General Assembly here in Richmond for that matter ) have retained even a modicum of independence. After 1-2 terms they either cave to the moneyed interests or the party bosses ( often one and the same ) or decide perhaps elective office isn’t for them . In that case if they have made the right moves then it is onto K street or in the case of local pol’s a lobbyist job representing the Automobile Dealers Association , for example in Richmond. Either way they no longer have any independence or personal integrity left. They sold it, yes it is that simple folks.

    How do you stop it ? Public financing of all elective campaigns would be a good start. Ending campaign contributions ( graft money if we are to be honest ) and giving all candidates equal financial footing turns it into a contest of ideas, instead of the money contest it now is.

    Who would argue, absent the money, that Brat would be cleaning the floor with Cantor at the moment ? How many decent individuals who possess stellar character today are turned off at the idea of running and serving because of the groveling you have to do for the money ?

    The other remedy is for the Patriot movement to wake up and recognize at 15%-20% of the conservative republican base we have the numbers to either help a candidate across the finish line , or stop cold a candidate who doesn’t meet the acceptable level of what is easily identified as a minimum to gain our support.

    It comes down to WILL, and the ruthlessness displayed by the establishment types to simply destroy us, those of us who recognize the hour is late, continued compromise, the refusal to see the continued damage we do by buying into this ” we gotta win” or ” our guy isn’t as bad as their guy” nonsense.

    If Brat is not the nominee then I will encourage people of conscience and good will to support whoever the other candidate is on the ballot ( I think Sarvis is running ) or sit it out, write in someone’s name on the ballot.

    Continue to support the “less of two evils” That has worked so splendidly –hasn’t it

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
