Why does Marco Rubio want to secure the border anyway? (his arguments donít add up)
SOL of course | 7/3/2013 | sickoflibs

Posted on 07/03/2013 11:27:23 AM PDT by sickoflibs

I have been listening to Rubio’s arguments very closely the past few months, closer than most are.

I learned that Hispanics are social conservatives who oppose both abortion and gay marriage (although the GOP dropped talk about that second subject anyway, too scared of offending young adults), and that this includes the ‘undocumented’ Hispanics.

OK, so if Hispanics are so against Abortion then why do they all seem to flock to Dems and especially Obama?

I learned that is because our anti-immigration (aka anti-amnesty, aka anti-illegal) rhetoric is offending them. So as soon as we support amnesty they will mostly all vote GOP to end abortion, especially with Rubio as our leader.(assuming we don't burden them with voting ID requirements, that offends them too)

My only question is if they are conservatives (so-cons) as Rubio and GOP keeps claiming then why does Rubio keep saying that we need to ‘seal the border’ and ‘stop the flow’ ?? Seems in that case we would want more of them to join us here in the US to get them voting GOP against abortion.

It’s not a mystery.

Marco Rubio is a liar.

Rubio is a lying racist. Says one thing in one language the opposite in another. He’s a low down good for nothing lying demagogue.

You can’t secure the border by giving amnesty to tens of millions of illegals. You can only secure it by pressuring illegals to leave.

“Secure the border” is BS, a lie to get Americans to support legalization. If they wanted to secure the border that is the legislation they would pass, not amnesty.

He doesn’t. He is trying to sell the bill. “Border Security” gives (some) cover to ‘Pubbies otherwise reluctant to risk the wrath of voters.

“Marco Rubio is a liar.”


Sums it up exactly!

Listening to him on Hannity were he must have repeated his dishonest half truth 30 times that no federal dollars will go to food stamps, housing, healthcare, education...

He never mentioned the real truth that under Scamnesty, every state will be on the hook for 100% of the giveaway costs.

I lost a lot of respect for Hannity and his audience as nobody challenged Rubio.

No wonder most politicians come from the lie, er law profession as they are trained from day one to be liars and to excel at distortion.

The above was a rhetorical question to get my point across but a couple of serious points on the above :

1) Rubio has avoided the explicit argument that we need his Senate bill to get the GOP votes.
Instead he is more lawyer-like saying that Hispanics are conservatives just like us who share our values and will under a Rubio economy will pay lots of taxes and be successful. McCain and Grahamnesty are the ones who keep saying the GOP needs those votes from this bill.

2) The reason why Rubio and the other stick on this border argument and stay away from arguing about legalization and amnesty and taxes/benefits (in any useful detail) is the former about the border is not a person to offend. 'I want to give you all our rights but Obama and that border keeps stopping it'
And he adds a dig at Obama on the border too as candy to us dumb conservatives.
