ALRA - See How Obama, McCain and your Reps. Voted On Your Issues

Voting records on private property issues in the US Senate have been analyzed and ranked for many years by American Land Rights and are available at http://www.landrights.org (links are in the rightmost column). This record tells you a lot about who to vote for in the House and Senate, but this year it also affects your choice for President since both candidates are US Senators. The President not only proposes, promotes and signs legislation and funding; his administration appoints Federal judges for life and runs the Federal agencies like the National Park Service and the EPA.

Federal agencies now operate under very broad, ambiguous powers so the President and his appointees have enormous power to decide what happens to private property owners under Federal agency action. This includes the creation of new Federal areas ensnaring private property such as the viro targets in Maine, as well as acquisition priorities and how heavy handed the agencies are in existing Federal areas. Under Clinton, Bush I, and Carter this was much worse than under Bush 2 and Reagan. Who is in the White House matters a lot. The viros wait for opportunities when they control Washington to press for the worst damage against private ownership rights.

One of the candidates -- Barack Obama -- has a background and ideology associated with radical left socialists -- which has is only recently becoming apparent because that record has been kept hidden and downplayed. As reported here previously Obama is also already promoting massive new Federal Parks, including in the East where the targets are mostly private property that would be taken over. The state of private property rights in this country under a whole variety of government actions at all levels is not good, but the prospect of ideological extreme leftists in controlling the Federal government threatens frightening change for the worse.

Here is an excerpt from the American Land Rights summary of the Congressional voting records. The entire ALRA alert is appended below.

You can go back many years and examine Senate and House Votes on your issues

by going to www.landrights.org. Senator Obama has only been in Congress for

four years and his vote record is included in the 2007 Vote Index as well as

the 2006 edition. It includes 2005. We will publish the 2008 scorecard but

with Congress running so late, it may not be possible to get it to you

before the election...

If you are unable to access the Internet to get a copy of the 2006 and 2007

Vote Index, as well as previous years, then call American Land Rights at

(360) 687-3087 and we'll mail you a copy.

Here are some examples of the issues Senators Obama and McCain voted on in

2005, 2006 and 2007. Both missed a lot of votes because they were running

for President. There were a limited number of votes where both McCain and

Obama voted on the same bills affecting you. None in 2007. Each vote is

well described in the Vote Index.

In 2006 McCain scored 100% when compared to the American Land Rights

position when he voted. Obama scored 40% in 2006. In 2007 McCain again

scored 100% on ALRA votes while Obama again scored 40%. For the record,

Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) scored 29% in 2007.

-----Help Educate Voters By Supporting American Land Rights

-----Look below for complete list of Omnibus Federal Lands Bills. Examine

this list carefully for bills that threaten you.

-----Please forward this message as widely as possible.

-----See Action Items below.

-----You can look up how every Congressman and Senator voted on issues

important to you. Go to www.landrights.org and browse the Private Property

Congressional Vote Index. This scorecard will show you the key votes on

private property, Federal land use, and many other kinds of environmental

issues.

-----Below this letter is a complete list of all the bills in the giant

Omnibus Federal Lands Bill (HR 5151) including their Senate and House

Sponsors. This will give you the information you need to talk to your

Senators and Congressman about how bad this bill is. Ask them to vote

against the Omnibus bill and withdraw their sponsorship before the election.

-----Please accept our apology for the long e-mail. We combined e-mails to

make sure we could get them to you in time.

Dear Friend and Ally:

You must keep the pressure on going into the election. You must keep

calling, faxing and e-mailing against the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill and HR

2421- S1870 Corps of Engineers EPA land grab.

This letter is being written after Congress adjourned but before the

election. Congress will come back November 17th for a Lame Duck Session.

American Land Rights wanted you to receive the election information you need

in time before the election.

Congress failed to pass the giant Omnibus Federal Lands bill so far. They

are planning to come back for a Lame Duck Session on November 17th. That is

when the real trouble will start. You must pound away at your Congressman

and both Senators to get commitments before the election to oppose the giant

Omnibus Federal Lands Bill (HR 5151), which at this time has over 150 bills

added to it.

The Omnibus Federal Lands Bill could have a new number when considered in

the Lame Duck Session.

Before the election is the time to get commitments from your Senators and

Congressman to oppose these bills. ALRA is in a race to get out hundreds of

thousands of faxes, letters and e-mails about these bills, plus the vote

records of Senators McCain and Obama as well as every other Member of

Congress.

You can go to www.landrights.org and look on the home page for the Private

Property Congressional Vote Index. You can go back several years to look at

how your Congressman and Senators voted on issues important to you.

ALRA is still sending out massive amounts of election education mail, faxes

and e-mail to inform potential voters about how their Congressman and

Senators voted.

ALRA must raise $55,000 quickly. Please send your 2009 membership to help

educate voters before the election and support American Land Rights.

You can go to www.landrights.org to join ALRA or make a contribution.

Thanks to your letters, calls and more, the Transportation and

Infrastructure Committee in the House failed to pass the giant Corps of

Engineers and EPA Wetlands Land Grab (HR 2421 - S 1870). That bill will

certainly be back when the new Congress comes back. But you must push your

Reps. now, before the election, to commit to oppose it.

When Congress comes back for the Lame Duck Session the House Transportation

and Infrastructure Committee could vote on HR 2421, the Clean Water

Restoration Act (We call it the Corps of Engineers/EPA Land Grab bill). It

will have a new number in the new Congress if it fails to pass before 2009.

The Clean Water Restoration Act is the Democrat effort to reverse two

Supreme Court Wetlands decisions favorable to private property owners and

seize control of all US watersheds for the Corps of Engineers and EPA.

That means all Federal and private lands. In other words, National Land Use

Controls. HR 2421 would give control over Wetlands and other lands back to

the Corps of Engineers and EPA. The Corps of Engineers and EPA would

control your land.

-----Vote Records-----

The vote records of Senators John McCain and Barack Obama are in the Private

Property Congressional Vote Index. There are vast differences between

their vote records on your issues. We've listed a few examples of key issues

below and shown how each of them voted. Senator Obama's record is very

short but we do have three years worth of votes. He generally votes with

the green groups.

The Private Property Congressional Vote Index is a Congressional Scorecard

published by the League of Private Property Voters. The League is a

coalition of several hundred organizations who help publish and distribute

the scorecard. Chuck Cushman, Executive Director of American Land Rights,

is the Chairman of the League of Private Property Voters that has published

the scorecard for over 20 years.

The most recent issues have been written by Chuck Cushman and Mike Hardiman

who has represented American Land Rights in Washington off and on for many

years.

American Land Rights is in a race to raise enough money quickly to send

faxes, letters and e-mails to hundreds of thousands of your allies to give

them the information about how to compare Senator Obama with Senator McCain

as well as the vote record of each readers own Senators and Congressman.

You can go back many years and examine Senate and House Votes on your issues

by going to www.landrights.org. Senator Obama has only been in Congress for

four years and his vote record is included in the 2007 Vote Index as well as

the 2006 edition. It includes 2005. We will publish the 2008 scorecard but

with Congress running so late, it may not be possible to get it to you

before the election.

If you are unable to access the Internet to get a copy of the 2006 and 2007

Vote Index, as well as previous years, then call American Land Rights at

(360) 687-3087 and we'll mail you a copy.

2005, 2006 and 2007. Both missed a lot of votes because they were running

Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) scored 29% in 2007.

Even with Congress home you need to call both your Senators and your

Representative at their office regarding the Lame Duck Session and how they

will vote on the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill and the Corps of Engineers EPA

Land Grab.

I cannot overstate how critical the NLCS is to you. The NLCS (National

Landscape Conservation System) is just one bill of over 150 bills included

in the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.

The NLCS was created in 2000 by Bruce Babbitt and the approximately 154

other bills in the Omnibus Federal Lands bill will vastly affect your access

and use of BLM lands including National Monuments, W & S Rivers and much

more. It threatens access and use by property owners, ranchers, miners,

forestry advocates, recreationists and many other Federal land users.

If the Corps of Engineers EPA Land Grab passes, every landowner will be

impacted by a huge new layer of bureaucracy and regulations.

Why you and American Land Rights (ALRA) should be on the same team.

-----Omnibus Federal Lands Bill

-----Congress Back Nov 17, Here Are 150 Bills In Omnibus Bill For Senate

Vote.

-----Congress returns for Lame Duck Session November 17th.

-----Senate will vote after Nov. 17th on Omnibus Federal Lands bill.

(For Now called HR 5151. The number could change.)

-----Here is a complete list of the over 150 bills included in the Omnibus

package. Other bills could be added.

Some of these bills are controversial. Others are not. But by lumping them

together in the Omnibus Bill, Sen. Harry Reid tries to buy the votes of all

the Senators.

Pay special attention to the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS).

This one bill is 26,000,000 acres of land grab.

Also hidden in the bill is land acquisition for national trails. This is

just the first step toward eminent domain.

Majority Leader Harry Reid (R-NV) plans on moving the giant Omnibus Federal

Lands Bill during Lame Duck Session.

Other Senators can stop it by putting holds on the bill or otherwise

delaying it so it cannot be voted on in the Lame Duck Session. Put your

Senators on the spot.

The Omnibus Federal Lands Bill is one of the largest and most expensive land

grabs in history. Over 150 separate bills included including the dreaded

National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS).

The danger in an Omnibus Federal Lands Bill is that since a Senator may have

a bill in the package, he or she will not look at the other bills in the

package. That is how a lot of bad bills pass Congress. It is a bad system

and you need to let your Senators know you are watching their actions on

this bill.

Harry Reid deliberately adds bills from Republicans and others so they won't

oppose the overall bill. You need to make sure your Senators oppose the

Omnibus Federal Lands Bill anyway. No bill is worth the enormous damage the

Omnibus Bill will cause.

This will be one of the most important votes in years.

-----Action Items-----

-----1. Forward this message as widely as possible.

-----2. Call, fax and e-mail both your Senators opposing the Omnibus

Federal Lands Bill. It may go under the number HR 5151. They could change

the number. When you call, ask for the staff person who handles this issue

and get his or her e-mail address. Keep calling and following up. You must

maintain the pressure.

Any Senator may be called at (202) 224-3121. Tell them to vote on each bill

separately. Bills should not be packaged together where nobody has read all

the bills. We will send you a report from the League of Private Property

Voters about which Senators voted for and against the Omnibus Federal Lands

Bill. Make sure your Senator knows this. You have extra power if you act

quickly and put pressure on your Senator before the election.

-----3. Go visit with your Senator if they are running for election this

year.

-----4. Call your friends and neighbors to urge them to contact your

Senators.

-----5. Get organizations to call both your Senators.

-----6. Call, fax and e-mail your Congressman opposing the Omnibus Federal

Lands Bill and the NLCS. After the Senate vote, the Omnibus Bill will have

to go back to the House for approval. All Congressmen may be called at

(202) 225-3121.

Omnibus Bill May Be HR 5151 or Some Other Bill Number.

-----All The bills listed below are in the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.

You need to look through this bill list and deluge any Senators listed with

bills

in the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill. You may call any senator at (202)

224-3121.

All Senators must be called, faxed or e-mailed because they will all vote.
