"This Election Is About Our Survival As A Country"
Thanks!!! to Ron Maxwell, Redskins hero Dexter Manley, who hung out and signed autographs, and a multitude of local luminaries who showed up.
I counted over 120 attendees throughout the evening. Not bad for a Tuesday night when "Back To School" night appearances provided substantial competition for candidates.
Attendees included Treasurer Roger Zurn, Commissioner of Revenue Bob Wertz, Commonwealth's Attorney Jim Plowman, Senate candidate Patricia Phillips, LCRC Chairman Paul Protic, and former Delegate Dick Black.
I was particularly gratified to finally meet my countryman Jeff Wolinski, and perpetual gadfly, the bulletproof one, Dean Settle. We did not have much time together, but I can tell the three of us could be trouble.
Ron Maxwell's speech traversed the illegal alien issue from A to Z, from the symptoms to the cause. He illuminated the problems citizens have experienced and the corporate interests that foster the influx.
Greg Ahlemann is the sheriff candidate who proposed FULL participation in the ICE 287(g) program, as well as putting a full court press on the Board of Supervisors to implement strict enforcement on zoning and businesses. Sheriff Simpson followed by parroting Ahlemann's proposals with a "me too" response, but Ahlemann set the agenda.
At the local level, everything depends on the WILL of our local officials to enforce the law, because there are innumerable escape clauses for those who do not wish to do so. As an example, Loudoun County receives $59.00 per night in compensation for federal prisoners held in our jail. Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, receives $109.00 per night. As the Mecklenburg County PR person told us, the only reason for the better payoff is they demanded it.
What else are the citizens of Loudoun County not getting, because our elected officials do not have the will to ask for anything better?
Most importantly, electing Greg Ahlemann will put the guy in office who truly believes in immigration law enforcement. Both current Sheriff Steve Simpson and Democratic candidate Mike George are exemplars of the non-enforcement approach. We can all see where that has gotten us.
Following are portions of Ron Maxwell's speech. If you want to understand what is happening with the illegal immigration problem in America today, I strongly recommend you read all of Mr. Maxwell's remarks.
UPDATE: My bad: Board of Supervisors candidate Geary Higgins was in attendance for most of the evening. (In fact he was the ONLY supervisor candidate in attendance. Too bad for the rest of them, they really missed something). I spoke to him and shook his hand so I really should have included him on the luminaries list above. Hey, the first draft of history often includes major omissions ...
Americans have been intimidated by two decades of multicultural propaganda. They no longer see that they have as much right to their culture and their way of life as any other community; and that if people come to join them in their territory, and to share the good things that Americans have established here, the newcomers must come with an attitude of respect, and not with the kind of swaggering chauvenism that La Raza seeks to disguise as fashionable multiculturalism.
We should remind ourselves of the real victims of illegal immigration; namely, the indigenous poor, including those African-American communities which have only recently gained their rightful place in American society. Americans today are aware of the historical injustice suffered by their black fellow citizens. Only a racist would like to see African-Americans again deprived of the opportunity to enjoy their rightful place in American society.
Yet it is precisely those who cry "Racist" at their opponents who now wish to steal the jobs of law-abiding blacks, and to hand them over at a discount to illegal immigrants.
If the American people had been united in opposition to it, the flow of illegal immigrants across our borders would never have risen to its present level. Unfortunately, there are loud, large and powerful interests which benefit from this flow. And it is these interests that are putting pressure on our government to turn a blind eye to the massive hole in our legal order, and to the very real threat to the security and the stability of our country.
Who are these interests? The answer is contained in three words, the way they call themselves in fact: the essential worker coalition. This is the name of the pressure group established and funded by those large corporations that benefit from the labor of illegal immigrants. By using these words, they hope to hoodwink the American people into thinking that the cheap labor which benefits the corporations is also essential to the American people. In fact, it is the American people who bear the real cost of it.
Illegal immigrants have many advantages from the employer's point of view. They are cheap, and their low wages enable corporations to avoid paying the wages and benefits required by American citizens...
But the fraud on the American people runs deeper than this. An illegal alien may still obtain the benefit of free education for his children, free health care, and all the opportunities made available by the costly infrastructure of America. Those benefits are part of his wages, and they are paid for by the American people...
Let's put it simply: Most of what an illegal alien earns in America is paid by the American taxpayer. His employer merely puts the icing on the cake - meanwhile enjoying the immigrant's services virtually for free.
No wonder the corporations are trying to persuade us that these workers who are so profitable to them are also "essential" to America. To have their wages bill subsidized by middle America is every corporation's dream.
It is not only the illegal employers who benefit from illegal immigration. The providers of legal support, health care, education, and social services are also in on the deal. The many privileges that such people dispense are funded by government, and the population of needy immigrants therefore represents a huge gain in disposable resources both to the immigration lawyers and to the providers of social benefits - a gain which is another loss for the American taxpayer.
The essential worker coalition represents a massive corporate conspiracy agains the ordinary American taxpayer. It is an attempt by corporations to avoid fair competition in the labor market, while turning their backs on the ordinary duties of a citizen to his fellow countrymen.
This corporate betrayal of America is supported by the vast network of interests - lawyers, health care providers, social services and schools - for which illegal immigration offers an easy and lucrative avenue into the taxpayers' money.
The irony is that this assault on patriotic values is sold as something virtuous...
My friends, this is not just another election for another sheriff in another county in America. This election here is about our survival as a country. Greg Ahlemann will not be like the sheriffs I quoted earlier. Those pretend sheriffs who will make any excuse they can find to do everything possible to avoid enforcing the laws they were sworn to enforce...
We do not have to support their high-minded, sanctimonious sense of superiority over the rest of us. We do not need moral lessons from sheriffs. We need from sheriffs the enforcement of the law...
The good news is we have raised among us true patriots like Greg Ahlemann, and the good news is we can vote for him and put him in office, and save our county, and save our country.
