Freshman Rep. Rick Crawford (R-AK) is 

asking for Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to step down stating that Reid is being reckless in his efforts to shut down the federal government.

So far, 85 House Republicans have signed a letter to Harry Reid asking him to resign as Senate Majority Leader. Reid has been publicly blaming the TEA Party members of Republicans for the stalemate on the budget. This budget should have been passed six months ago. Democrats have REFUSED to submit a budget and REFUSE to negotiate any substantial cuts on spending. As an example on the ridiculous things Reid supports, do you remember “The Cowboy Poets“?

The letter written by Rep. Crawford:

Mr. Reid,

Many of us wrote last week pleading with you to bring a long-term continuing resolution before the full Senate that would fund government operations for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2011. We hand delivered the letter the 39th day after the House passed HR-1, its version of the FY 2011 yearlong continuing resolution that adhered to the calls of the American people pleading for reasonable, responsible spending cuts.

Unfortunately, another six days have passed and your refusal to pass a bill means our Nation has moved one step closer to a government shutdown. Mr. Reid, your lack of action and absence of leadership is irresponsible. It has now been 45 days since the House of Representatives passed a bill that reduces the massive $1.4 trillion deficit for FY 2011 by a modest $61 billion.

Where is your bill, Mr. Reid?

We urge you to reconsider your reckless, partisan strategy of shutting down the government. If you will pass a bill, the House and Senate can meet in conference to reconcile any differences and then forward the final bill to President Obama.

The American people deserve responsive leadership from those who are elected to higher office. Unfortunately, you have failed on numerous counts. Under your stewardship, the Senate failed to pass a budget resolution last year, something that hasn’t happened since the current budget process was established in 1974. Mr. Reid, you also failed to pass one single appropriations bill to fund even a single federal agency, but yet you somehow muster the nerve to say Republicans are the problem. The ball is in your court to pass a long-term spending resolution for the remainder of FY 2011 that can be reconciled with the H.R. 1. With all due respect, if you do not plan to fulfill your responsibilities as Senate Majority Leader, perhaps it is time to step aside.

Mr. Reid, it is time to stop denying the dire straits of our nation’s fiscal health. It is time to pass a bill.

Bound together and determined,


In light of the fact that the Democrats in Washington have shirked their duty to our country by refusing to be accountable for their irresponsible spending, they keep blaming everyone except themselves. So when federal employees around the country find themselves without a paycheck when the government shuts down, they can all go ask Harry Reid to support them. Reid should have never been re-elected to begin with.

Here we go again. Harry Reid should have been tossed out on his ear when he said that Washington “STINKS” every summer during tourist season. What a commendable quality in a U.S. representative to vocalize that WE THE PEOPLE smell.

More enticements from Washington to the illegals of Mexico to come to our country. It’s called the Dream Act. Reid is proposing to attach the Dream Act to the Defense Bill. He wants to reward illegals for bringing their children here… illegally. They must have been here before they were 16 years old and been here for 5 years. They must join the military and complete 2 years of college.

All he Dream Act does is allow a back door way around amnesty. Not to mention the economic burden put on a state to fund these illegal children through 2 years of college. Lets not forget the state burden of welfare all along that have been taking care of them to begin with.

Reid needs to understand that the American people do NOT want illegals here at all. Reid fails in his proposal because he (and the rest of the Democratic congress) seem to have this consensus that they are doing the country a favor. What they are doing is ILLEGAL. There are rules set forth in our country pertaining to legal citizenship. Rules are in place for a reason. They make it seem like these people have rights. THEY DO NOT. No person here in the United States illegally has any damn rights to anything in our country. What they do have the right to do is come here legally. No one is denying them the American dream to pursue happiness, just come to our country legally.

When is the left going to realize that the Democratic Party does NOT give a shit about these people? When are they going to realize that the only thing they care about is the populace of voters? When are they going to realize that calling people who oppose immigration amnesty of ANY form are not neurotic, anti-American, or bigoted. What we believe in is ‘Rule of Law’. When are they going to get their heads out of the sand and rediscover the TRUTH?!!

The truth of the matter is that the Democratic Party is the party of TREASON. It is the Party of LIES. It is the Party of SOCIALISM!!!! As said by Norman Thomas (6 time socialist candidate for U.S. president), “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of ’liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing what happened. I no longer need to run for presidency since the Democratic Party has adopted our platform”.  The Democrats have been the BIGGEST proponents AGAINST civil liberties in our country for over two hundred years!

Democrats have this notion of an ideal society brought about by the hand of a benevolent, enlightened government., when in all reality…. it’s socialism. Every time socialism is entertained in other countries, it fails miserably. History has taught us this. Why in God’s good name do these people still believe in it? Do they not see how the socialist programs already installed by our government have already deteriorated?

In all honesty though, let Senator Reid sink himself with this proposed Bill. GOP front-runner Sharon Angle already has a lead on him. I wouldn’t say it’s a done deal, but Angle has a 13% lead on him. This proposal will make him look even worse in the eyes of America who support AZ’s SB1070 and who do not support amnesty.

It’s representatives like Reid who refer to “We” as themselves instead of “We” as in “WE THE PEOPLE” are the ones who NEED to be voted out of office. The Dream Act is just a desperate last minute attempt to make himself appear like he gives a shit when in all honesty… WE THE PEOPLE know better.
