Genuine Feedback From Ardent GOP Supporters

SUBJECT = Richard E. Hesenflow
NAME = Amnesty
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = I am withholding my support and any contribution until the issue of illegal aliens is resolved. My household includes 5 republican votes. However, I assure you that we are all in agreement, NO AMNESTY for illegal aliens in the the U.S.

With respect,
R.E. Hesenflow

SUBJECT = illegal amnesty
NAME = joseph alagna
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = It is very sad for me to tell the president that I love and voted for that I won't be voting for him in the next election. It pains me deaply to hear that my president does not have the back bone to uphold the immigration laws of this country.


DATE = 01.07.2004
SUBJECT = SHUT THE FRICKEN BORDER DOWN NOW!!!!!!
NAME = Greg Funk
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = What the hell are you doing Mr. Bush?! Don't you know most of us are SICK TO DEATH of all the illegals coming over in droves. Now you want to give LAW-BREAKERS amnesty? Are you out of your mind? They are taxing our system and there are a lot of us who want them OUT! I used to do carpentry in the Phoenix area and I can tell you from first-hand experience that the wages stayed the same and have now gone down because these illegals will work for almost nothing. Don't tell me that they contribute to the economy because whatever the do contribute is far outweighed by the harm they do, i.e. lower wages, over-burdening the medical system, crime. Most people know that these illegals send most of there money home to Mexico anyways. How does that help us and how many votes does it get you to introduce bills like this?

SHUT THE BORDER DOWN NOW!!!!!! I WON'T support you in the upcoming election because of this.


DATE = 01.07.2004
SUBJECT = Ilegal Immigration
NAME = Jim Bianco
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = I am extremely disappointed on the President's stance concerning illegal immigrants. I believe we should completely and totally secure our borders, before any program should even be considered. I'm concerned that if the President continues along this path, a lot of Republicans will stay home on election day and we'll have a Democrat elected President in 2004. But then again, if we continue along the path the President proposes, what's the difference?


DATE = 01.07.2004
SUBJECT = Amnesty
NAME = Steve Ardis
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Dear Sirs,
I am a staunch republican, and prior to today, a Bush supporter. Because of his stance and support of amnesty for ILLEGAL aliens, I will not be voting for Mr. Bush in November of 2004. I will abstain from voting along with many of my friends and colleagues. I know he knew that this act would anger many republicans, but must have thought that we still would vote for him because there is no alternative. Our alternative is to abstain. This was a huge mistake he made in treating his faithful supporters like pawns.

Unless there is a drastic change in his immigration policy from what he said today, my mind will not change.

Sincerely,
Steve Ardis

SUBJECT = Immigartion
NAME = Nacole
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Hello,

I live in Arizona and I think Mr. Bush is out of his mind. I see what the illegal people do to the communities they live in. They bring their poor hygiene, rude behavior, lack of respect for others property as well as their own. They are inconsiderate neighbors, that even after you have asked them to keep noise down they just get louder. They refuse to speak English.... We are in America and you should have to speak English when you are at a grocery store, restaurant, convience store or wherever.

I honestly believe that if this passes, it will ruin the Southwest United States and the trash will spread to other areas. This could be the absolute worst thing that Mr. Bush has thought of. The Southwest is already overrun with illegal, why encourage it? Has Mr. Bush ever been to a neighborhood where these people live? If he saw what they do to our American home, I would hope he would think twice.

I am thinking more and more that the Southwest United States should have something like the Berlin Wall at our borders to keep these illegal out. They are destroying our nation and our economy. I certianly will not be voting for Mr. Bush if this passes!

Thank you for your time

Nacole

NAME = Glen Cooley
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Mr. President,
This is the first time I have sent an E-Mail to anyone in the govt. I work hard, pay my taxes and respect the leadership of the country in all capacities. I want it known that I do not support giving illegal immigrants any type of "Legal" status unless they do it the correct way. Get the green card! What; it is hard? It should be! This is the greatest country in the world. Why...Because we are americans and that should not be handed to anyone because they provide cheap labor! ABC news tonight interviewed a couple tonight that have been in this country illegally for 15 years. Were they even speaking english in response to questions? NO! Why do we have to be the ones giving in. PLEASE do not do this!!! You will do fine in the election without doing this. I can't support this and you will lose my vote and anyone I can get to listen.

SUBJECT = immigration
NAME = Hiromi Mirigian
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = I voted you on the last election and I also voted your father twice. I am a Republican and I think you should learn from The Swiss Peoples Party(SVP). They are an anti-immigrant party that has gained public confidence in recent years, at the expense of the left-leaning Social Democrats. The change in the composition of the ruling council has ended a coalition government that held power for 44 years. Fears of the massive numbers of Islamic immigrants to Western Europe have been fueled by the attacks on the United States and subsequent terrorist attacks elsewhere. The California election(governer) was a primary reason for the election being held in the first place. Open borders cost California billions and maybe costed the governor(Davis) his seat. The aging Anglo population are retiring to other states or taking their businesses elsewhere other than California for example. They are being replaced by masses of immigrants who pay few taxes and use many public services,! but no one will honestly talk about the mess. We need to close the border. We can not afford to feed immigrants especially illegal immigrants. They are here illegally. They do not deserve any services nor benefits.

SUBJECT = Illegal immigrants
NAME = Elizabeth Neumann
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Dear Mr. President: The news today is reporting that you are going to put in place a more lenient policy toward illegal's coming to this country. Mr. President do you have any idea of all the problems that come with letting people, especially Mexico to come in this county? One thing is is overpopulation of our country. The roads in Southern California are so crowded that you can't get from point A to point B. Now you are asked everywhere if you want English or Spanish, because there are so many Mexicans here. What about our welfare system who gives everything to Mexicans and are burdening our system. Please stop the thousands and thousands of people flooding our country. On a personal level I do not intend to vote for you as President until you seal our borders and consider the American people who were born and raised in this country, shouldn't we come first? As someone once said "We cannot be big brothers to the world". Regards, Elizabeth Neumann, Minden, NV

SUBJECT = Veterans
NAME = Donald Ney
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Dear Sir: I have recently read that you plan on increasing veteran's Tricare for Life benefit payments. I feel this is outrageous! We have served our country for many years (I am a vet of both the Korean and Vietnam wars), but again, the government is trying to take away our benefits that we have earned. I ask you sincerely to reconsider, or we will have to reconsider voting for you. Respecfully, Don Ney

NAME = Tim McQuown
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Mr President:
This country is for legal citizens not for those who have broke the law. I gave $ and my vote to you in 2000. If you grant amnesty to those who have broke the law. I will not support you in 2004. I can not understand why you are doing this. Please be a leader and not a politician and protect our borders.

SUBJECT = Illegal immigrants
NAME = Ron & Rosemary Dyer
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = I am firmly against the president allowing immigrants who have broken the law to illegally enter this country to have a free ride so he can get votes turns my stomach. We have loyally supported the president and the republican party , but will no longer support either if he follows that path.


DATE = 01.07.2004
SUBJECT = immigration
NAME = Thomas Anderson
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = What are you thinking of? Our borders are a major problem..and you want to make them leak even more by rewarding violators of our immigration laws. I am an ardent supporter, but have grave misgivings concerning your ability to think clearly about this matter. I understand that hispanics are a major source of votes. But does that justify encouraging violations of our existing laws? I am not impressed by such obvious pandering to such interest groups.

I evidently will have to take a much closer look at what the democrats have to offer and more carefully weigh my decision next year. That is too bad, since I was sure of the fact that you were my candidate of choice. However, that is now in question. Some commentators are saying this is just a ploy , that you never expect Congress to approve it anyway. If that is the case, it is even a more stupid and ill-conceived position.


DATE = 01.07.2004
SUBJECT = Illegal Immigrants
NAME = George O'Brien
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Enforce the law! Get them the hell out of here, and Americans will do the work. My sons were not able to work until they were 16 and 17 because the work I did as a teenager was not available to them - it was being done by illegals. Illegals who soak our system for HUGE hits on education, health care, and other services. Keep our borders secure. The sob story about how they walked through the desert - BFD - let them come in legally. And why do we allow illegals to enlist in our armed services? Let Fox come halfway to consistent with his neighbors to the north and south. Why should we prop him up? And let them learn the language! When I lived out of the country I learned the language of the country where I went. How much does it cost to print ballots, legal notices, school letters, etc. in literally dozens of languages? And why do we not DEMAND that Mexico return the cop killers they harbor? Enforce the immigration laws. They are not citizens of the USA, they are not our responsibility, and they have no damn business taking our jobs, our services, our Social Security, etc.

SUBJECT = Immigration
NAME = K.Alford
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = When Clinton did it, we were outraged...now, I can't believe you are giving a free ride to illegal immigrants...I am totally DISGUSTED, as are everyone else I know, that you would not only jeopardize our safety but take away American jobs. On HGTV, I see tilesetters, bricklayers, landscapers, painters, construction, cooks, and ALL types of jobs taken by immigrants because they are just cheap labor. In Fla., the hospitals are little Haiti, and patients can barely communicate with staff.

This is ABSOLUTE BETRAYAL of us that put you in the White House. At lease, Gov.Arnold had the courage of convictions... that you lack in this matter. Compassionate Conservativism should learn that CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME...TO ALL of us. I am so outraged I am thinking of voting against both parties next time. I expected as much of Clinton, Gephart and their ilke, but I can tell you this caused a breach of trust that will not be forgotten.

SUBJECT = Immigration
NAME = Janet Achey
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = I can't believe it. I loved President Bush until today. His proposal on immigration is in direct contravention to the vast majority of Americans. If he wants the Hispanic vote so bad, he can have it. He's not getting mine. I will cast my vote against him


DATE = 01.08.2004
SUBJECT = amnesty for illegals-you lost my vote
NAME = Stacy Rippy
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Dear Sir,
I will not vote for a single Republican in the next election. Maybe if you lose your positions you will listen to who voted you in the first time! Instead of your advisors.......

This single issue hits my home more than any other. My husband goes to work and brings home LESS due to illegal immigrants. His tax dollars bail out hospitals, jails and welfare systems catering to those you wish to grant amnesty to...10 MILLION PEOPLE VOTED NO ON MICHAELSAVAGE.COM TO AMNESTY- THAT MAY BE 10 MILLION OTHER VOTES YOU'LL LOSE BESIDES OUR FAMILY. Think about that, do the right thing for those of us who supported you and support this Country already by paying our taxes and voting.

Sincerely,
Stacy Rippy

SUBJECT = immigration
NAME = Pauline Cadrin
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = The proposed plan for immigration "reform" is bad. It is hypocritical on many fronts. Illigal means illigal. We don't need to be sensitive to the fears of law breakers. Our borders need to be strengthened and a true effort needs to be made [even if my taxes increase]to collect these people and get them out of here. It is a plan that is based on personnal polital gains for the President; specifically his re-election efforts. I have written to both Maine Senators and expressed my outrage. I run a business in Maine, our employees feel as I do. I am a registered Republican. I voted for Mr. Bush. I HAD every intention of voting for him in 2004. I will seriously re-think that now. The President may gain hispanic votes but he'll lose ours.

SUBJECT = Illegal alien proposal
NAME = Dave Flaherty
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Mr. President:
I am a CA conservative Republican and you just lost my vote and the votes of 15 other family Republicans in CA. Not only will we not vote for you in 2004 but we intend to vote for the Democratic candidate. Sir thats 30 votes. You won Florida by how many votes? Every vote counts. 15 votes you won't get and 15 votes the DEMO's get.

You have crossed the line with Fox and Mexico. I can not believe I have to write this letter. Shame on me but as Comander in Chief your position is Traitorous. You are to uphold the laws of this land not curcumvent. Any CA congressman who sides with you on this issue will get negative votes as well when the time comes. Sir, you have drawen the line in the sand and even if your proposal fails, you have gravely strucken a blow to liberty and freedom in this country. You have no idea what harm you have caused us in CA with illegal immigration and terrorists by your open speach today. I can't believe a Republican much less the President of the United States would sell out his country for the Latino vote in 2004. May God have mercy on your soul.

NAME = Thomas H. Schear
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Your recent policy statement on immigration demonstrates to me that you are really not serious about the war on terrorism and you are not serious about improving out economy for the people who really pay the taxes or our nation's sovereignty. I am a Republican and have been ready to vote for you but this may be the last straw.

MESSAGE = MESSAGE: LIFELONG REPUBLICAN,BUT THE IMMIGRANT INITIATIVE IS THE LAST STRAW. YOU REACH A POINT WHERE YOU WOULD RATHER HAVE THE LIBERAL DEMS PASSING THIS TYPE OF LEGISLATION SO YOU COULD CRITICISE THEM AND USE IT AS A WEDGE ISSUE. THE PRESIDENTS ADVISORS MUST BE SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME TALKING TO EACH OTHER AND NOT TO THE PEOPLE OF THE USA TO ADVISE HIM THAT THIS PROPOSAL WOULD BE POPULAR OR EVEN UNPOPULAR BUT JUSTIFIABLE.

PLEASE DON'T ASK ME FOR MY VOTE OR A DONATION.

PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Pres. Bush,
Well you did it. You betrayed the conservatives who are your core support. I supported you from day one, arguing your case with many friends. But your politically motivated proposed change on immigration may make me stay home on election day. I wrote your father the same theme after he betrayed us on taxes, and, I guess I was right, because we all got 8 years of bill from arkansas. I thought you were smarter, but I was wrong. Please join me in November 2004 and watch the moron from Vermont, or the boy scout from Arkansas put you in retirement.

NAME = Lt. John B. Johnson, USAF
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Hey, Mr. Preznit ClownShoes, LISTEN UP! We, the members of the United States Air Force, being of sound mind and body, have determined that you, a officially-noted wartime deserter and filthy, illegal squatter at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. are doubtlessly qualified to speak on illegal immigrants as you illegally migrated from the foreign country of Texas and illegally assumed the job of Chief Executive of the USA, a position which would be better suited for a REAL AMERICAN! The Veterans you have so shamelessly shafted wouldn't vote you in as dog-catcher after this! In closing, eat a bag of shit, SIR!!

NAME = Lucie
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Mr. Bush:
I think that from the beganing, America had been soft on immigrants and that by allowing them to remain in our country, take our jobs, use our public roadways, make our tax money, they should have to pay our taxes and if you are doing this as a way to solicitate votes that it shows your imcompatence about where you stand and until you treat them as americans and make them pay taxes, i will never vote for you.

NAME = Todd Fischer
PARTY = Republican
MESSAGE = Dear Mr. President
I am totally against any legalization of ILLEGAL aliens. I consider this to be a bigger threat to the American way of life than terrorism. If you pass any legislation that alloys these ILLEGAL aliens to stay in this country, I will not support ANY politician or political candidate that supports this legislation. I am so concerned about this issue that I will not only not vote for yourself, but actively campaign against you. Todd Fisher
