Where is the outrage expressed by US Citizens.

When will be our day of expressing our dissatisfaction with our lawmakers.

Anti Immigrant march on your state Capital.
A million man march on Washington.

I'd be afraid to organize a march of protest.
With all the lazy and apathetic Americans staying home and sitting on their hands, it would only embolden the illegal alien movement.

Oh yeah, the march should be on a weekend, since we all have real jobs.

I wish I had the free time to stand on a corner and protest about something.

It's all in the optics. You are not anti. You are for the U.S. enforcing its own laws.

Hit the corporations that support them and protest there.

Wally Mart
Home Depot
Don't remember the full list.

If others were willing in my neck of the woods I would show up.

July 4th, perfect!

Maybe it should be sooner before those fools in Congress do something that may ruin this country.

I'll be doing a major renovation to my house and there will be no illegals on the job site-GUARANTEED!

Why not use the same 10 cities the illegals did?

seemed important for them to pick those cities.

Which cities are they? It kind of snuck up on me and was over before I knew it was planned. I would have flown a "DEPORT THEM ALL" aerial banner if I knew it was up Sunday.

Damn, is there one I don't have to take two days off work and fly 800 miles to get to? Its not like I live in freakin' Alaska or something. Maybe we could all move to Hawaii and kick the natives off. If the Mexicans managed to get there the term 'wetback' would be an understatement.

Edit: Vegas, I could make it to Vegas on a weekend.

If only all the people that were for closing the border and deporting all illegals would just get together the marches would be in the tens of million, but it will never happen.
They could tell every senator and house member if you don't do this you are through
in politics, We would be lucky to get just a few thousand to march.

COUNTERPROTESTERS BURN 2 FLAGS, TRIGGER SCUFFLE
By Associated Press
A small group of counterprotesters set off
at one end of Armory Park burned two Mexican flags more than 90 minutes into a larger rally Monday on behalf of immigration reform.

Two members of the group called Border Guardians took turns first verbally attacking illegal immigrants and the Mexican government.

Then, as one member, Russ Dove, was burning the second flag, a young woman hurled a water bottle at the flag-burners, who were separated from the larger rally by a ring of Tucson police and
another of migrant supporters.

As police began escorting the woman from the park, with her hands behind her back, others in the crowd began jostling and tried to defend her.

At least three other people were taken into custody after brief scuffling with police.

Police did not provide details immediately.

One thing all the illegals have.....the means to organize.

How did they do it? Via Spanish television and radio.

Us legal citizens would need to use the means available to us.

We all know that our media isn't "our media". The mainstream media is no longer on our side.
So, how would we do it?

Contact as many organizations as possible that we know would support the cause. A few places immediately come to mind.

1) Free Republic .com

Thousands of people go to that site who would be all for it.

2) The Minutemen

Possibly sites like....

3) Newsmax, WorldNet Daily etc...

4) Groups like "Protest Warrior" .com ...

Please feel free to add to this list.

And finally, and most importantly, you would need a team of organizers with the time to head the effort up and coordinate with the above-mentioned groups.

A "Support Our Laws" rally could be done...for sure. It would just take some work.

P.S. I think a 4th of July rally would be a bit too late. Congress will be back in session in a few weeks. Legally, it will likely all be over and done with by the 4th of July. Maybe Memorial Day. Lots of people will be off work then...that might even be too late, but it would be a better choice than the 4th.

So, again, it would need to be on a Saturday or on a holiday.

Memorial Day wouldn't be a bad time. Plenty of people, real Americans, would already be out and about and would likely join in.
Link Posted: 4/11/2006 7:31:10 AM EDT
Unfortunately all a protest will do is get a few car horn honks. That and the media will label you as xenophobic and racist.

Protests only work for minorities and "victims". Red-blooded gun-owning Americans are neither. Just watch the news, we're the badguys.

Some truth to this, but see what the media has done?

It's turned too many on our side into defeatists.

You don't wait for the media to approve of you.

POLITICAL POWER MUST BE TAKEN (abit peacefully is usually better in represenative democracy).

It is never handed out freely.

If you let the media stop you from doing something, then you are already a default leftist.
-------------
ADD: And, "Yes", I'm getting a little sick and tired off all the defeatists on our side. The main reason it "won't work" is because of the defeatist attitudes I seeing displayed on this very thread. Of course if you don't have the will...then you can't do anything.

If you do have the will...then almost anything is possible.

The real truth....if there isn't a counter march, it is because "real Americans" lack the will to do anything about the problem.

The media isn't stopping me from protesting, it's stopping that protest from accomplishing anything. You want to get together with some rifles and make some real change we'll talk. Til that happens all we're doing is living under the illusion that our votes and opinions matter.

Edited to add: The power of the American Voter to make significant change through our political process is dead. The sooner everyone realizes this the sooner we can figure out a different way to get our country back.

Here's an idea. Where ever you are celabrating 4th of July bring a protest sign with you. If you are going to your cities fireworks show show up with your sign. Wonder how many AMERICANS would be harrassed by the cops for this?

Pretty good idea. Might work on Memorial Day also.

The idea, of course, would need to be picked up by a bunch of supportive sites and organizations.

Doable....would take less time to organize too.
