STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES
Read the Democrat platform THEY ARE FOR 100% AMNESTY!!!!
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.
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.
Bush can easily switch policies to match majority of citizens desires, or he can tear up the Republican party. His choice.

If this hands it to Kerry, then Bush has nobody to blame but himself. It is a bad positions. A very bad position.
"Hold you nose and pull the lever" is getting tiring.
When you get someone in office who ignores their voter base, and does as they please because they are sure the party faithful will stick with them no matter what - then you begin to have big, big problems.
That's another example of "Be careful what you wish for".
If you want to repeatedly send the message that you can ignore the wishes of the people who put you in office, and still get re-elected - then you start down an even more ominous slop than a Kerry victory in 2004.
If the true Republicans have to take one for the team to make sure that their next candidate doesn't take them for granted the next time around, then it is 4 years of sacrifice well spent.
This stuff isn't easy. It would be easy (and cowardly, IMHO), to go pull the lever for someone that you think is running a treasonous immigration policy, because you are towing the party line.
The lemming mentality is the reason things get to where they do. You get taken for granted. You have been taken for granted. You either let it happen, or you reclaim you vote, and let the "bad" guy win. It all depends on how badly you want politics as usual to continue. "The lessor of two evils" is the cowards arguement, IMHO.
I voted for Bush in 2000 (and I don't really care if you believe me or not).
Screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice, shame on me.
