DEM-GAZ Wins Prize By Protecting Illegal Activity Articles

Holt Has a More Coveted Prize,  However

Remember all those  articles the Democrat Gazette - Paul Greenberg, George Arnold, David Barham and Kane Webb - wrote advocating illegal acitivity - you know those articles  protecting the illegal acitivity of illegal aliens' right to come and stay in our nation and state.  You know all those ugly articles they wrote crucifying anyone that wanted our nation to continue as a law abiding nation, especially those articles lambasting Senator Holt for having the audacity to represent the people and try to get a law passed to protect taxpayers by refusing state benefits to illegal aliens.  Well these editorialists  just received a prize for those articles!

But guess who the prize came from!  The media of course.  Of course, these editorialists please the media.  They represent them. But what about the people.  One would think those writers who kept calling Senator Holt "out of the main stream" would realize now that they are really describing themselves.   When the Senate tried to pass a bill that would tickle these Arkansas Democrat Gazette editorialists pink, surveys showed that just  "20% of American voters want Congress to try and pass the immigration reform bill that failed in the Senate last week," reported a Rasmussen poll. In questioning Holt's humanity in their articles, they basically questioned the humanity of 80% of the people in the nation.   http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/poll_voters_want_smaller_steps_to_immigration_reform_with_focus_on_enforcement

You have your media prize, Greenberg, Arnold, Barham, and Webb, but Jim Holt and we law abiding citizens have a more coveted prize -  the people's support and the support of all those who have gone before us (you know that "cloud of witnesses" referred to in that good book and our founding fathers ) .   Remember Arkansas's motto:  "The people rule."  Some of us still believe in that philosophy. 

Those advocating lawlessness for illegals are endangering the safety of every individual in the nation.  No one is safe in a nation where people pick and choose which law is right and which is wrong.  In the play Man for All Seasons, Sir Thomas Moore made some key points on the necessity of obeying the laws.  The following one concerns his son-in-law who is trying to help him get out of prison for insistence that the King follow the law.

William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
William Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!
