The Democrat Party has long tried to position itself as the party of minorities and the poor. The reality is that nothing could be further from the truth. As a mid-30s minority American from a lower middle class family, I am exactly the demographic that the Democrat Party caters to. I am also an avid student of history and economics and my studies have taught me a lot about “political ideas.” For example, through my studies of American history, I know that liberal Democrat welfare policies have done nothing to lift the poor out of poverty, but have instead worked to entrench them in poverty for generations. I also know that though the Democrats have been pandering to minority groups for decades, they’ve done nothing of any weight to actually improve conditions for America’s poor minority groups.
What has all of this pandering to the poor and minorities accomplished? It has rooted voters from both groups firmly in the Democrat camp.
And liberals are at it again, working their dark magic in an effort to buy more votes for the foreseeable future. This time they are using the promises of American exceptionalism to lure their prey. Millions of people from around the world try to gain entry in the United States (legally and illegally) every year, because they understand the one truth that liberals seem to have forgotten – America is still the land of opportunity. We offer hope to millions, and now the Democrats want to pervert that hope.
The Democrats want to grant relative amnesty to the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants currently living the United States. This means that anyone who has sought to come legally but not been able to will lose out, simply because they obeyed the law. We are incentivizing criminal behavior while punishing good behavior. Amazing.
The Democrats can’t do this all by themselves, however; they need Republican help. That’s where the GOP establishment and their RINO minions come in. News out just today has the President inviting GOP establishment types to the White House for “conversations” about immigration reform. The Democrats may hold the White House and a slim majority in the Senate, but it’s not enough to get their version of immigration reform through – for that they need the RINO caucus. With that in mind the President has been courting the king of the RINOs himself, John McCain.
Listen up folks. Now is the time to call your representatives and tell them how you feel about immigration reform and amnesty. The establishment is going to wait until after the 2014 midterm elections so they don’t get primaried by more conservative candidates. House Republicans are working hard to make us believe that they would never allow amnesty to pass, but with the money behind the amnesty push there is no way we can feel secure about that.
“I think conventional wisdom is that time is not on our side,” McCain told reporters. “But there are a number of members of Congress who have primaries and when those primaries are done, they may be more inclined to address the issue of comprehensive immigration reform.”
We need to let them know that we are watching and we are going to punish the representatives who don’t listen. It’s up to us to protect our country because these entrenched politicians and the filthy money that supports them will keep selling us out.
