2016 Election

Which GOP Candidate is Anti-Gun, Pro-Amnesty and Pro-Common Core?

Written by Onan Coca


This is what I’d like to call a Public Service Announcement to Republicans in the primary states still waiting to vote. Of the four candidates left in the GOP field, which one is the only candidate who can say that they are: anti-gun, pro-amnesty and pro-Common Core?

If you answered Ohio Governor John Kasich (R-OH), you are correct!

The very funny and well-informed Tim Young recently released the personal, heartfelt note that President Bill Clinton once sent over to (then) Rep. John Kasich (R-OH). In the note he thanked Kasich for his support of the anti-liberty “Assault Weapons Ban” and acknowledged how Kasich’s willingness to join the Democrats was greatly appreciated.

But don’t forget, Kasich doesn’t just hate the 2nd Amendment. He’s also a big fan of the monstrous government takeover of our education system. In fact, Kasich believes that all of that supposed Common Core opposition is just a “runaway Internet campaign.”

Now John Kasich is committing what Marco Rubio (R-FL) has learned is the unpardonable sin of the 2016 election… supporting immigration reform that includes amnesty. Here are just a few examples of Kasich admitting he supports amnesty for illegals:

“For the 11 and a half million who are here, then in my view if they have not committed a crime since they’ve been here, they get a path to legalization. Not to citizenship. I believe that program can pass the Congress in the first 100 days,” Kasich said.

“For those that are here that have been law abiding, God bless them,” Kasich said—arguing that illegals “should have a path to legalization.”

“They’re just good people. They’re made in the image of the Lord, and you know, there’s a big element of compassion connected to how we treat people who are trying to find a way to a better life.”

Breitbart has many more such examples.

I guess the overriding point is this. Of all the candidates left, the one who least deserves your support for President is John Kasich.
