In a true democracy, you have the right to decide if you want to be a democracy type government. Besides I would have a very difficult time believing that culture could accept or even follow a democracy. There culture and society is totally different then ours, we are a Christian society or government and they are totally the opposite. As long as they do not want to fight or defend for there own freedom, we should not be willing to defend there rights with our life.
They will continue to murder in the name of there God, and treat women with no respect. No form of Democracy would support this, all we can do, or should do is turn this government over to them and leave. Lets face the fact, they have a long way to go before they can appreciate true freedom and understand democracy. We must stop wasting our lives for them, if they are not willing to die for freedom and justice, good-by.

Dear Representative Hoekstra,

Please return annual immigration to lower and more sensible levels by cosponsoring The Nuclear Family Priority Act, sponsored by Rep. Gingrey.

The claim that chain migration is about "family reunification" ignores the fact that each immigrant who comes to the U.S. separates another family by leaving other relatives behind.

If a person really wants to live near his/her extended family, he/she should remain in the country where that extended family lives. Except for the very small percentage of newcomers who are refugees, nobody is forcing immigrants to leave their families.

In light of your strong immigration voting record, I hope I can count on you to contact Rep. Gingrey's office and to sign on as an original cosponsor of his bill.

Pete Hoekstra is a buffoon

When he first ran for office, he said he would serve six years in Congress.

Then he changed that to six terms.

Then he changed that to "I didn't really mean what I promised."

How can anyone take this person seriously? What a fool
