STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES
Read the Democrat platform THEY ARE FOR 100% AMNESTY!!!!
what a bunch of idiots. Have bush lose, make things worse.
Yes, the border situation sucks. You don't make things better by making things worse.
"Fed up with what they say is the Bush administration's failure to address a growing illegal immigration problem, a small group of conservatives has launched a series of radio ads seeking to convince voters to oust President Bush from office."
Cutting off their nose to spite their face.
Do they think that Kerry would be better on this issue? Odds are he'd be even worse (if that's possible). And in the middle of the WOT with possibly three SCOTUS justices retiring in the near future this is no time to be putting a dangerous liberal like Kerry in the WH. These "conservatives" have their heads up their asses.
Illegal Immigration will be the defining issue after 2004. If Bush continues to ignore the problem after he is re-elected, the Republican party will be torn apart. There are many republicans who are only holding their nose and voting for the party establishment this one last time because they feel obligated not to switch horses mid-stream after 9-11. However, with the WH open in 2008 the pressure and abosolute need to deal with this problem will not be held back any longer.
Maybe we need to air some radio ads...
"Vote for Bush/Cheney and keep Kerry/Edwards/Soros out of the Whitehouse."
Those conservative groups better wake up and smell the REAL enemy! The Dems are pulling out all the stops to perpertrate massive voter fraud and invalidate the election if Bush wins. The ONLY thing that can counteract them, is for ALL conservatives to fight the real enemy, get out and vote for Bush, so he wins with such decisive margin, to overcome the fraud AND it will still be a decisive margin, to overcome any possible challenge to the election.
This is not time to "make a point" and throw the entire country to the terrorists.
Campaigns begin mobilizing lawyers (Dems already filing lawsuits)
Lawyer urges snowbirds to cast their votes (to help Kerry)in Florida
Foreign election monitors driven by leftist political agenda (Alcee Hastings to appoint monitors!)
I agree. If "our" RINOs continue to support Open Borders Uber Alles, what's the point of supporting them?
The understatement of the century. It's not just him, it's most of them in Washington, and what they're doing to America is criminal.
If we don't like Bush's border policys, we will HATE sKerry's.

Continuing to vote for the Republicans solely for the sake of achieving short-term victories is a lost cause. Republicans might win in 2004 or even 2008, but when Texas inevitably becomes solid Democrat, the party of Clinton will have an unbreakable stranglehold on the Electoral College. Any minor gains conservatism makes in a second Bush term will be completely negated by the permanent demographic changes underway. Im guessing that these Republicans feel that the only hope for this country is to deliver a swift kick in the rear to a complacent party. Perhaps if they get the message, a true conservative can be elected in 2008 before its too late (Instead of a Bush successor who will likely be equally weak).
This is clearly the Left doing this. This is unreal.
What tools. Do they think they'd be getting this media coverage for opposing a Democrat? It's just the latest Bush-bashing story, and something the media is all too happy to publicize.
This is just as stupid as the people who won't vote, or vote third party, over the abortion issue even though the Republican running is 99% pro-life but not the required 100% for the single issue voters.
IDIOTS to be doing this to the Prez at this crucial hour.
So do these people think a President Kerry will seal the borders? Bush has increased funding for border patrol. I think his guest-worker plan is flawed too, but what's the best way to approach it? Any plan HAS to go through Congress anyway. Why don't these people put pressure on Congress and the administration AFTER the election?
Something has to be done about the immigration issue, and we can't make things worse by staying home on election day.
After the election is over is the time to work on immigration through both the Legislature and the courts.
We've found that we can't trust Bush to close the border, so a grass-roots, Conservative, push to go around Bush is the best answer.
A: Ralph Nader and his Socialist Worker's Party cohort.
Buchanan wants to remain anonymous because everyone knows what he is and where he's coming from. That's why he set up Tancredo to be his media outlet.
Others should learn from Buchanan's example of what opinion the public has of people who spout hatred.
And Kerry would be better??? Very suspect group!
Totally, totally agree. Looks like Soros & the Dems are exploiting a hot-button issue and trying to Tokyo Rose conservatives into staying home or voting for the CP.
You are correct. Unfortunately, there are other factors in play.
Senator Orrin Hatch managed to attach his DREAM Act giving reduced tuition to illegals to a critical but unrelated bill, thus avoiding a floor vote.
Senator Craig's AGJOBS bill, which would result in eventual amnesty for up to 3 million illegals (and an effective pardon for their employers for all past transgressions) is headed the same way.
I received an email from NumbersUSA earlier today saying that the White House is pressuring the House of Representatives to remove language from the new 9/11 legislation that would make illegal immigration more difficult. At the time the email was sent, the House Republican leadership was standing firmly against the changes wanted by the White House.
When I read the headline, I thought the same thing. Then, I saw Ron Prince's name. He's no leftist. He came up with Proposition 187, the anti-illegal resolution on the California ballot back in the 1990s. It was big news, don't you remember? Definitely not a project of "the Left"
I would love to reply to this post as a conservative, but then I would be branded a 'troll' and nuked.
Sigh. (Longing for the days when conservative meant conservative and not republican).
Bush's border policies absolutely stink to high heaven. My biggest fear is that after the election he'll resume with his AMNESTY plan without fear since he won't have to worry about reelection again.
Sure Bush has better polices than Kerry, but what difference would it make since those policies will be in gridlock caused by the open border?
The Republican Party of today is in complete opposition to the Republican Party of old formed during the conflict of slavery.
As a reminder; before the civil war wealthy business owners tried to push slavery on the country, which prompted Radical republicans to favor immediate eradication of an institution, they viewed as iniquitous. President Bushs plan for amnesty and continuation of the present situation of a low paid workforce is in complete opposition to those Radical members of the first Republican Party, whom in the end were proven right.
A strong president would take a stand against business operations who use an illegal immigrant work force. If these businesses cannot make a profit without being subsidized by tax payer social funded programs, such as energy, health, education, roads and water projects needed to support the massive population growth, then they should cease to exist.
This is a capitalist country that is the way it works, if businesses cannot pay their own bills they need to close, we are not supposed to be funding socialist work projects with taxpayer funds to make up the difference.
The modern day equivalent plantation owners who are the backers of these candidates do not have the moral clarity to understand, nor will they change their ways unless threatened by Radical members of the Republican Party in the same manner as was done before the civil war.
The Republican party in 1861 was a coalition of disparate elements. Formed only 7 years earlier, it contained men who had been Whigs, Anti-Slavery Democrats, Free-Soilers, Know-Nothings, and Abolitionists. By the outbreak of the war, these fragments had coalesced into 3 basic factions: conservatives, moderates, and radicals. President Abraham Lincoln's task was to mold these factions into a government that could win the war without destroying the South politically and economically.
The most aggressive and, eventually, most influential of the three was the Radical Republican faction. All Republicans were against slavery, but this group was the most "radical", in its opposition to the "peculiar institution." While conservatives favored gradual emancipation combined with colonization of Freedmen, and while moderates favored emancipation but with reservations, Radicals favored immediate eradication of an institution they viewed as iniquitous, and saw the war as a crusade for "Abolition."
I think folks that don't want to see the USA abolished in favor a merged state with Mexico would take a lot less than 100 percent on this issue. Unfortunately Bush is coming in at about 5 percent.
Even if it is Buchanan or Tancredo is behind this (which you offer zero proof), it still doesn't explain why Bush, who promised to "protect this country from threats," has practically rolled out the red carpet along the Rio Grande for illegal aliens to stream through and committ the crimes that American citizens won't committ.
This is an outrage. With all that is at stake in this election, these people are encouraging voters to oust the President? Are they insane? What kind of country do they think they will get with Kerry as President?
So is Bush and he WILL get his way, as he has proven many times before with his hold on the republican leadership in congress.
The best bet is a crippled, gridlocked Kerry dealing with a republican congress. If Bush loses, the GOP will know why and vote in the interest of their self-preservation, which means conservative (a no brainer given how far left Bush has taken the party), especially on this issue.
With all due respect, if John Kerry followed by Hillary Clinton is elected, none of you will have a country left to complain about anymore. Perhaps some do not really grasp what we are up against here with these ultra leftists. Borders won't matter much if these anti American socialists are in charge. Good grief!
Why do we wait until after another election is over? Shouldn't a candidate put his agenda and platform up front, before any election?
Millions have been pouring over our borders since Bush's Dad was in office. He did nothing. After four years of President Bush being in office, they are now estimating that 3 million a year are now flooding in the country.
That's the equivalent of 3 *major* cities a year of illegal aliens into our country. What could possible be a larger domestic/security issue than this? My friends, this has gone far beyond the need for dishwashers and lawn mowers. This is completely out of control, and tumbling down range.
With upwards of 15 million already in country, and 3 million more a year, do the numbers for the next ten years. It's beyond belief.

I think you nailed it there. To the "Republican" open borders crowd, it's all about "Privatizing profits; socializing costs."
Here's hoping that through some miracle you're not one of the taxpayers bearing the costs. I sure wish I wasn't.
I hear that the "You have nowhere else to go" paragraph only appears in the English-language part of the Bush-Cheney 2004 website.
Factually wrong. Since 9/11 security on the southern border has been immensely increased.
But let's just test your knowledge of the subject. Border security is typically measured by agents per mile of border. For example we have an average of one agent for every five miles on the Canadian border. What in your opinion should be the ratio for the Mexican border? Or do you just ignorantly attack President Bush?
