I am writing to as many tea party leaders, activists and conservative leaders as I can find. We need to find out why big business is fighting for amnesty and immigration reform.
As conservatives, we are working toward deregulation and free enterprise, and the businesses that will benefit the most from our efforts are opposing us. It is illogical. We need to engage big business directly to find out what is going on and to let them know what we are doing and can do to help them and to let them know what we need from them.
- What makes foreigners, and illegal aliens more attractive than Americans as employees?
- It is government control of our education that has reduced the competence of American citizens and college grads.
- Once “illegals” are legalized, they will be subject to the same requirements that make Americans expensive, minimum wage, able to sue for discrimination, etc.
- The illegal alien community is only about 12 million people.
- Agriculture workers comprise less than 10% of the workforce and that is the hew and cry: http://www.bls.gov/emp/ep_table_201.htm
- Why does big business support big government when it cripples free enterprise, which the US Chamber of Commerce says it supports?
- How much and what types of corporate welfare do they receive?
- Is the elimination of competition by government overregulation more valuable to big business that free enterprise?
- Why aren’t deregulation and elimination of the EPA their highest priorities. They should be full on-board with the tea parties.
- Is big government, the Republican Party, promising big business something in exchange for their assistance in defeating the Tea Parties and conservatism?
We need to engage the US Chamber of Commerce, our local Chambers of Commerce and Big Business. Message me if you would like an Excel spreadsheet of the CEO’s of the Fortune 500 as of June of 2013. While some of these people may have changed position most of them will still be accurate.
I recommend a two-pronged approach:
- Tea Party and Conservative leaders need to reach out to these businesses to engage them and work with them to find solutions to the problems.
- Phone calls, letters and emails directly to big businesses opposing amnesty and immigration reform from as many citizens as possible. We need to flood their phone lines with opposition to this legislation.
If we can find out what businesses met with John Boehner in Tuesday’s close door meeting, we need to contact them asap.
