A Stark Contrast between the Two Leading US Senate Candidates regarding Illegal Immigration and Taxes, etc.


First, lets start with immigration and the Views of Senate Candidate Jim Rutledge, he outlines a solution, here is his take.

NATIONAL SECURITY

Illegal Immigration | Radical Islamists | Energy Independence

Illegal immigration – A matter of National Security.

What are the measures Jim Rutledge would propose to address the issue of illegal immigration?
First, the federal government must fulfill its duty to enforce a uniform law of citizenship and immigration in every state. States and local governments that create safe-haven rules and refuse to enforce the laws against illegal immigration should be prosecuted in federal court.

Second, we must reduce and eventually eliminate any and all federal funding to states based upon the census or any other enumeration.  States must not be encouraged to count illegal immigrants to increase their portion of federal funding.  Furthermore, since representation in Congress is based upon the census, illegal immigrants skew proper representation for all American citizens.  Lastly, once States adapt to a lack of federal funds perhaps their own policies and behaviors towards illegal immigrants will change.

Third, to ensure a fair playing field the government should require all employers use the e-Verify system.

Fourth, we must improve border security.  This is a pressing matter of both national security and immigration policy.

Fifth, amnesty is not the answer. I will oppose amnesty law because they reward unlawful behavior and encouragemore illegal immigration in anticipation of the next amnesty law.


The long-standing failure of the federal and state authorities to apply uniform and consistent enforcement of our federal immigration laws has undermined our National Security and constitutes a breach of loyalty they owe to the citizens of the United States of America.

Congress has failed in its duty to hold the executive branch accountable for its refusal to enforce the immigration laws that they have sworn to uphold as the supreme law of the land.

The time has come for the citizens of Maryland to hold their representatives accountable and demand loyalty to the citizens whom they have been elected to serve.

Jim Rutledge Pledges Support to Pat McDonough in Maryland Effort to Fight Illegal Immigration

Jim Rutledge Criticizes Barbara Mikulski for Supporting Amnesty Bill

FOREST HILL, Maryland – Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Jim Rutledge of Maryland joins Delegate Pat McDonough in the fight to defeat amnesty legislation for illegal immigrants and secure the Southern border with Mexico. McDonough is encouraging Marylanders to sign a petition in support of the Citizens of Arizona. Candidates for office in Maryland along with members of the General Assembly will be provided surveys asking them whether they agree with Arizona’s approach. Jim Rutledge said, “We have a responsibility to enforce the laws and secure our borders.”

The Rutledge for Senate Campaign believes that Maryland should end the present policy of “catch and release” which continues to heighten the growing number of gang related problems. Barbara Mikulski continues to sit idle while the safety of our communities is in jeopardy. The cost of not enforcing the immigration laws combined with liberal spending practices supported by Barbara Mikulski is forcing Maryland deeper into debt. Jim Rutledge said, “Last year, Maryland spent in excess of 1.4 billion of taxpayer money supporting the illegal population in the state.”

Jim Rutledge who possesses years of experience with constitutional law and criminal procedure believes the new Arizona law is reasonable and constitutionally sound. States like Maryland and Arizona have waited for years for Washington to enforce immigration laws but have failed to do so. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said, “But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created an unacceptable situation.” Jim Rutledge opposes the attempt by Barbara Mikulski and Harry Reid to pass the Amnesty Bill. Washington needs to enforce federal laws and not reward those who break our laws and threaten the security of our nation.

Here is his opponents stance on Illegal Immigration, Senate Candidate Eric Wargotz

Immigration:

Existing laws need to be enforced.  We need to maintain secure borders. Citizenship for those in our Country illegally is not an option.

Dr Wargotz on Taxes:

Taxes:
Even though our President admits that raising taxes during a recession would be a mistake, Congress still insists on imposing heavy levies on those who create jobs and threatens to raise taxes on all hard-working Americans. Government waste, abuse, incompetence, and fraud are threatening our children’s future and their reduction is key to economic stability and reducing our tax burden. We must move away from a tax system based on production to one based on consumption.

Jim Rutledge on Taxes/Budgets

TAXES and RECKLESS SPENDING

Rutledge’s Tax Policy

The stimulus bill will pay the salaries of 300,000 illegal aliens.

[Bruce Eliot Show, WBAL 3/14/09]

The stimulus bill abolished the Clinton Welfare Reforms of 1996.

[The Heritage Foundation, Rector and Bradley, Web Memo #2287]

The stimulus bill takes $10,000 from each taxpaying family and gives $22,500
more in spending for every poor person in the US.

[The Heritage Foundation, Rector and Bradley, Web Memo #2287]

Welcome to socialism on steroids, and your leaders have only gotten started on hammering down freedoms in pursuit of utopia. Enter the Age of Dependency; Farewell to Independence; Farewell to Freedom.

How is the federal government paying for its unprecedented splurge?

Borrowing and Taxes.

Who is Congress borrowing from?

Saudi Arabia and China – The new Bank of the USA.

Bizarre isn’t it that Congress would borrow from the most oppressive cultures in the world to fix the credit crises?

Jim Rutledge says it is not only bizarre, but it is treachery.

Like a loan shark who will break your legs or bust your face, the new world lenders will

cut off the oil flow

fund terrorists and fuel the fire of Radical Islam

enslave your children and grandchildren

If a Nation is judged by the company it keeps, then Americans should want no parts of Nations that treat women as second class citizens, kill infants, burn Bibles, and persecute Christians and Jews and the Tibetan Monks. Yet, that is exactly what your Senators are doing by voting for reckless spending that depends on the sale of US debt to China and Saudi Arabia.

Wargotz on the Role of Government

Role of Government:
Government should interfere as little as possible in our daily lives.  I believe in more efficient government through reducing fraud, waste and abuse in our Federal system.  We must work towards limiting the role government plays. It should not get in the way of our lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness. Fewer laws, greater liberty. Government must focus its efforts on delivering to its citizens mandated services of the highest quality. We must ensure greater transparency and accountability. Term limits for Congress need to be considered. The U.S. Constitution is the operating document and Congress must adhere to its authorities granted in Article I, Section 8.

Jim Rutledge on the Role of Government


UNALIENABLE RIGHTS
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
[Declaration of Independence]
“nor [shall any person] be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”
[Fifth Amendment, United States Constitution]
Life
On March 5, 2009, Senator Mikulski rejected a law “To require that amounts appropriated for the United Nations Population Fund are not used by organizations which support coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.” [H.R. 1105, S. Amdt. 613] In other words, instead of devoting your taxes to build America’s infrastructure, Senator Mikulski voted to send your tax dollars to the United Nations knowing that those dollars may end up funding coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization in foreign countries. Nations that force women to have abortions against their will and forceably sterilize women against their will are not friends of America and are enemies of women’s rights. Do you want to pay for that type of medical terror?
If you object to your tax dollars being used to fund abortions and forced sterilization of women throughout the world, then vote for Jim Rutledge, a Senator who will work to stop this intrusion on your freedom of conscience.
To respect Human Dignity requires placing a special and unique value on human life. A civilized people must value human life above all other forms of plant and animal life on earth. A Nation’s laws should likewise place a high value upon all human life. Human Life is a paramount and unalienable right given to us by our Creator. “Unalienable” means that the Creator gave every person the right to Life, and no government no matter how powerful can justly take that away without due process of law. Accordingly, Jim Rutledge promotes the following public policies regarding Life:
First, the life of the fetus deserves the protection of our laws as a person, as the weakest and most defenseless person in America. No person has the right to take the life of another unless they are defending themselves from attack or are defending another from imminent and deadly force. Accordingly, Jim Rutledge is Pro Life.
Second, the life of a sick or elderly person is as valuable as the life of a healthy one. We cannot allow the government to legalize, promote, and pay for killing innocent people out of convenience. Therefore, Jim Rutledge opposes euthanasia and opposes laws that authorize state and physician assisted suicide.

Liberty
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
[Preamble, The Constitution of the United States of America]
Liberty is hard to maintain in the face of powerful leaders. That is why so much of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are devoted to protecting people’s individual freedoms from control by a powerful elite. This campaign is about Freedom. Please spend some time reflecting on your freedoms and liberties, and the threats to those freedoms, because only you, through your Freedom of Speech and your vote, can demand leadership that will uphold and defend the Constitution in order to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

As you can see, there are undeniable differences between the two candidates, one is a staunch conservative and strong regarding our Constitution, while the other candidate, while he has some good views, does not match up well on the issues hitting our country hard right now.  Jim Rutledge is a hard backer of our Second Amendment right to bare arms and protect ourselves and out property, there is nothing listed on Camp Wargotz regarding our second amendment rights.  Dr Wargotz fails to execute the strength needed regarding Illegal Immigration right now.  Whilst I have invited many of the candidates to come down and support our Illegal Immigration Rally, representatives from Camp Rutledge will be there, along with some others.  Don Murphy, a huge supporter of Dr Wargotz said he may show up.  I can give you more comparisons of the two, and it would seem likely, that the GOP has thrown it’s weight behind Camp Wargotz, while I continue to ensure this does not happen.  Why do you ask?  Because I want someone who will protect my back, my families back and will work with us to help rid our Nation and State of the Lawless activities promoted by illegal immigration.  I asked Camp Wargotz his stance on Illegal Immigration, all I got was, he is against Illegal Immigration, but no solutions.  Nor have I heard him come out and Support Pat McDonough on his introducing of the Arizona Bill next year in our legislation if he is re-elected.  Help Save Maryland, Washington County Citizens United, People For Change, Alipac, Numbers USA, IRLI, FAIR and other groups will be putting their support behind candidates that look to change the way illegal immigration is handled in our Country.  I don’t want someone to just say, I am against Illegal Immigration, I want to see your plan on fixing it.  Senate Candidate Jim Rutledge has a plan, and if we are lucky enough to have him meet Barbara Mikulski in the General Election, he is the only one who will be able to expose her on this issues.  Camp Wargotz on the other hand has a great feel and take on the Healthcare bill, but I don’t see where this is going to make a difference, unless we can take the fight to the Supreme Court.  I like Eric, none of it is personal, it’s about Politics and who fits.  In my mind, it’s Jim Rutledge.  I also like Corrogan Vaughn, but I believe, he should bow out and run for our General Assembly.  He could make such an impact as one of our delegates.  He truly fights for the people and it’s not about smoke and mirrors, its about people first.  He is the right man, wrong timing.  I feel badly for him.  He is one of the nicest gentleman I have gotten to know over the last year and I wish nothing but the best for him.  He reminds me of MLK, yes that’s right, The Civil Rights Leader, ask me why, I will tell you why.  His roots and passions are deep, run red, white and blue like myself.  Family man first above all else.  As my good friend Ron Miller told me, God has other plans for him, I believe God has plans for Corrogan in our General Assembly.  Such passion and Charisma.  So down to earth, your every day meat and potatoes guy.

So this is my synopsis as to why I am supporting Jim Rutledge for our next US Senator from Maryland, his passion for protectionism is unmatched.  His drive and determination to help restore our pride back.  His stance on Illegal Immigration that is the heart of this year’s election now.  I know all of my friends read my blog, Corrogan, Jim and Eric, so make no mistake, this is not personal, it’s about how I view the candidates and why I will be backing who I am backing.  Attacks on me just because I don’t support you, add less credibility in my eyes.  If politics is more important than friendship, then those are friends I can do without.

I have never ever let my opinion in Politics intervene with my friendships, after all, it’s just politics, right?  What does politics have to do with friendship?  Friends last a lifetime, Politicians come and go.

    I see that you chose NOT to do extensive research on Eric Wargotz’s positions so you could better present the candidate that you were predisposed to support. Eric has multiple news releases, radio interviews, news articles and radio ads but you chose to only pick a handful of things from his website.

    I think if you did your homework you would see why Wargotz is the leading candidate.

    Cecil, I’m glad more people don’t read this blog because more people would see you for the politicl hack that you truly are.
    You claim to be a conservative yet you pledge allegience to Former Gov. Erhlich. The fact that he has name recognition, albeit not always in a good way, flush tax, democrat judge appointments, increasing the size and scope of state govt, pro abortion, pro embryonic stem cell… Shall I go on?
    The we come to the life long democrat turned Republican wannabe ACLU Constitutional Attorney James Rutledge. Just what Washington needs. Another attorney. Wasn’t Arlen Spector an attorney? Will Mr. Rutledge ‘change his stripe’ again to save his political ass? It may be in the cards.
    No doubt Mr. Rutledge can put his lawyer words to keyboard and make his website look good. Please explain how a “constitutional attorney” can be in favor of term limits? Doesn’t our Constitution already give us that right every 2, 4 or 6 years at the ballot box?
    I presume Pat McDonough is some political fat cat in Annapolis that Mr. Rutledge is looking to hitch his wagon to. Maryland is just one of the many ‘pools’ where illegal immigrants have ended up, Jimbo & pat are doing nothing to turn off the spigot.
    Perhaps rather than sniping at another candidate you, Cecil (if that’s your real name) and Jimbo should focus on the real intended target, Babs Mikulski.
    Unlike the RNC/MDGOP, you should let the primary process work. Have Jimbo spend what little of his own money left (yes, his campaign finances are a matter of public record) and put out ads on his accomplishments, advocacies and community involvement. Perhaps which criminal he got a ‘walk’ for on a technocality.
    As Arnie said above….
    Do your homework.
