From My Point of View

Sen. Jeff Sessions has had it with his Republican colleagues, and took to the floor this week to deliver a scathing speech in which he asked, “Who do we represent?”

The Alabama Republican was talking about a $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that extends tax credits to people who don’t pay taxes — including illegal immigrants.

He was talking about a bill that offers sales tax deductions for those who live in jurisdictions without sales taxes.

He was talking about a bill that delays implementation of Obamacare’s “Cadillac tax” for two years, well after the president is out of office.

“At a time of record immigration – with a full 83 percent of the electorate wanting immigration frozen or reduced – the GOP-led Congress is about to deliver Obama a four-fold increase to one of the most controversial foreign worker programs. The result? Higher unemployment and lower wages for Americans,” he said.

Then he moved on to what prompted the electorate to give the Republican Party its sweeping victory in the Senate during the last election — and how the GOP is paying their constituents back.

“The voters put Republicans in a majority in the 2014 midterm elections – a vote which constituted a clear decision to reject the abuse of our immigration system.

“That loyalty has been repaid with betrayal,” he said.

He said that the bill essentially capitulates to all of President Obama’s wishes.

“The omnibus approves – without conditions – the president’s request for increased refugee admissions, allowing him to bring in as many refugees as he wants, from anywhere he wants, and then allow them to access unlimited amounts of welfare and entitlements at taxpayer expense,” he said. “This will ensure that at least 170,000 green card, refugee and asylum approvals are issued to migrants from Muslim countries over just the next 12 months.”

Then Sessions addressed unrest and dissatisfaction among GOP voters, prompting conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh to declare that it’s time to disband the Republican Party.

“There is a reason that GOP voters are in open rebellion,” he said. “They have come to believe that their party’s elites are not only uninterested in defending their interests but – as with this legislation, and fast-tracking the President’s international trade pact – openly hostile to them. This legislation represents a further disenfranchisement of the American voter.”

The House, including 166 GOP representatives, passed the omnibus bill Wednesday; only 64 Republicans, joined by three Democrats, voted against it.

Here are excerpts of Sessions’ floor speech.

It's such a shame that the majority of American citizens do not share the same outrage, anger and response as Sen. Sessions.

This is the reason elected officials continue to screw over the people and the Nation.  They know most Americans don't care and nothing will come of their actions and sell out against the people.

BTW: obama already smells the fear of americans about his last year.   It has strengthen and increased his plans for more attacks against citizens.

As a Candidate; you then need to raise funds for your campaign

Unless you are very wealthy and can fund your own campaign, in order to succeed as a candidate, you must raise funds. Events, mailing campaigns, printing, signage, advertisements, etc. all add up to huge expenses. If you've received enough signatures, you won't need funds to qualify.  However, if you fall short, in order to be a candidate you must pay the amount for postitions listed in the previous blog.

A common misconception about political fundraising is that it…
