Well, THIS is a humongous pair of clay feet for Rubio.
(Speaking in biblical terms, like the statue referred to in the book of Daniel which was made of composite iron and clay, which won’t mix into a durable blend.)
Oh I get it! I’m a minister as well. I totally get what you’re saying
I don’t consider myself “easily duped,” but I was completely wrong about Christie and Rubio.
when they say reform we get something like Obamacare
this new immigration bill is 1500 pages the equivalent of an immigration Obamacare that of course will grow government, give amnesty to illegals, and let 100 million more of their relatives in.
look people the problem is these laws, gov creates a problem as the 1965 immigration act another law created this illegal and 3rd world immigration problem , so they say lets fix immigration so then we get an even worse monster to add to our troubles, more gov, another 1500 page law which is not the answer. the answer is to repeal the 1965 immigration act as repealing Obamacare is
Alas in this day some over-zealot might get the idea that I was suggesting concrete shoes or some such thing. (Which is not the idea. I think he should be very humanely ousted from office if he continues down this road.)
I hate to say that I will vote for the lesser of two evils again...but I will. Once again if the occasion arises.
If the Dems run a candidate as anti-American as Obamster, which I expect they will, this country will be lost anyway.
There doesn’t seem to be a viable third party at this point. If something comes up that changes that, I’m on board.
Sad to say, but it looks like you are right, damn it.
People like Rubio, people with an Hispanic background, almost always have a vision problem when it comes to immigration.
They may sound quite reasonable or conservative on other concerns but when it comes to immigration they become inconsistent.
It’s too bad because Rubio did seem to hold conservative positions on other issues.
But I am glad he revealed his true beliefs at this early stage.
Is he insane? Or just illiterate + stupid.
Slaves were brought here as captives in chains and sold atauction. The illegals come here of their own free will and have countries they can return to.
I have been warning about Rubio ever since he was caught in the lie about his family fleeing Castro ( they didn’t) - but this is beyond the beyond the degree of leftist fraudulence I could have imagined.
taxpayers are closer to slaves than “undocumented immigrants”
Rubio and Jeb Bush are best buds. Jeb also has a Mexican American wife.
Since they are buds, maybe expect a Jeb Bush - Rubio ticket.
May I suggest that because people keep voting for the lesser of two evils, that is the very REASON a viable 3rd party cannot and does not form?
Hate to say this, but if Jeb Bush is the GOP candidate in 2016, I’ll sit out the election. I will not vote for another Bush no matter what.
The time for a viable third party is when the Democrats stink so bad they can’t even come up with a third of the votes. Otherwise we have only a spoiler situation.
I fully agree.
F the fat Cuban RINO.
And, since England doesn't want Piers Morgan back, and he likes it here, he should be allowed to be a citizen right now. I think I would throw up if Piers was a citizen of this country.
Then you need to stop complaining about things you vote FOR. Because rather than vote to end the problems you will continue to elect another Rubio and wonder why life sucks.
And not just you. Everyone who thinks like you. Tell me something. To an alien coming here from Mars, he sees a bunch of people acting like blacks on the Dem plantation with their votes. Then he sees them having a fit when they get what they themselves vote for. Can you understand why Mork is a bit baffled?
The tip off is always the same.
Amnesty supporters never talk about E-Verify or employer sanctions, which would end our illegal immigration problem in a couple months.
Rubio is now talking about E-Verify enforcement in 5 years.
E-Verify is less complicated than the Free Republic website.
Why can't we have enforcement tomorrow?
“if Jeb Bush is the GOP candidate in 2016, Ill sit out the election.”
I heard Jeb’s speech at the CPAC convention and when he said, “And, in conclusion,” the people started clapping. He pause, looked stunned, then continued. Those people didn’t like him at all.
Rubio never ran in my territory, I did not vote for Rubio.
Primaries are the ideal place in principle to fix this kind of thing. It’s easy to curse the darkness. Who’s lighting candles?
So rather than address the issue you get philosophical?You will vote for whatever the GOP puts up right? Jeb. Christie. A true blue RINO rather than a third party conservative. Just to “Win”. And to hell with principles.
True or false?
The best way I’ve heard is somehow a conservative gets elected under the Republican banner and then dumps the GOP after the midterms and runs third party for reelection. The thinking that alot of conservatives would rather vote for the president against the democrat than vote for now a now outside-party-looking-in being the GOP especially if the conservative wins reelection
We seem so needy of a spokesman that we latch on to any politician that can put together two sentences with out making a gaff.
Rubio is articulate to be sure, but listen to all the flowery speech and see if you can figure out what his real agenda is. Hard isn't it, because he speaks of compromise always.
Do you have a quick summary or a link to what Rubio said?
I didn't know he lied about it.
I knew his parents skedaddled to Miami a couple years before Castro took power, though.
I agree with you. There are certainly things I like about Rubio, but I am kind of less and less impressed with him as time goes by.
I have worked my hiney off for the TEA party. I don’t see many positive results so far.
I would love to see a third party blossom, but it ain’t a happening thing.
I respect your suggestion about the lesser of two evils being the reason there is no third party...but I fear the real reason is apathy.
Yes, I am discouraged.
He has made his choice to go Gop-e. He used the TP; now he's in with the good ole boys it seems. He's likable so they used him to get to the people they need (open your minds, we need reforms) True, but not this Schumer bill. For awhile, I thought Rubio was being set up, so Jeb could be the one set in motion. Jeb Bush practically ran Bush's 2nd term as Rove was defending himself in that Valerie Plame/CIA leak case; fearing jail. Rove was even missing daily meetings at the WH. I really believe Jeb was in the middle standing in. We see what he can do. I hope they do not push Jeb on us now Rubio is pushing amnesty forgiveness. I know we need to redo our immigration but not this bill with those lobbyists' groups getting what they want.
Christie, if the amnesty bill goes thru it won’t matter who the Pubs run.
There will never be another Pub president or legislative body. Not that the Pubs are all that great.
If this happens, I mourn the loss of our country.
As are we all.
Comnsider that it took us since 88 to fall this far. What makes anyone think Superman will hit the scene and fix it with his Politi-Ray vision in 5 seconds?
Apathy? Absolutely a problem. But the bigger IMO is that everyone believes in Magic Bullets. What they need to believe in is themselves, buck the hell up and understand that only idiots fote for the opposite of what they claim they want.
I will scream this till I can’t. If people insist on voting for closet Democrats like Rubio who are obvious liberals, they need to shut up when they get Amnesty or Gun control or abortion or gay marriage. Because they have the chance to vote elsewhere of their free will and do not.
And if anyone can show that logic to be incorrect, they should do so. To date, no one has.
I haven’t trusted him since he hit the big time, my basic position is republicans are all part of the big government New World Order, and never go weak at the knees as some report in an attempt to mislead the rubes, they never go weak in the knees because they actually support the same agenda.
100% correct!. I have a sixth sense for quickly sensing if a person has rabid Statism in their core DNA.
I remember clearly within the first days after his election Rubio was speaking, rambling on. During that speech he said something that instantly made me realize this guy was a complete fraud.
He spoke about "illegals" (not using the word). There was one sentence that revealed his views to the world contradicting the very essence of what it means to be a Conservative. Ever since that speech I get sick when Radio hosts and leaders call him a "wonderful" Conservative. Nothing could be further from the truth.
All one has to do is view the youtubes of his post election speeches and clearly catch the line.
What I find interesting is that the Dems found Superman with a magic bullet with Obamster. But we can’t seem to do the same.
We support people like Paul, Rubio and Toomey thinking we are doing a good thing.
Your logic is not incorrect in the least. But we are trapped.
I don’t think it’s a case that they found Superman really. All the lib groups have contrary interests...see Muslims and WyminZ rights factions. But they ALL decided to abandon a few of their principles for their ‘greater good’, and coalesced around the village idiot who promises all things to all people and in the end, provides them with what? They are all pissed at him but they have a fantasy that some day he;ll distribute their ration of Soma....real soon now.
One good wedge and that coalition of coalitions explodes like a nuke. But the current GOP tries to prevent that instead of capitalizing on it and so is just another willing partner.
Here on the supposed right, we do the SAME DAMN THING. Romney was a prime example. We abandoned principle just like the dems, so that we could form a winning coalition just like the dems, all with competing interests just like the dems, expecting ours were the most important just like the dems, to elect the village idiot just like the dems and we wait for our own Soma from the GOP just like the dems...real soon now.
Instead of getting off the Jeep to Guyana and our appointment with the Kool Aid stand, we rent a helicopter to get there faster.
People need to admit that they made a huge mistake. If to no one but themselves, and STOP DOING THE SAME STUPID THINGS that got them where they are.
A fee to be paid by Rubio if he wishes to have the Establishment’s blessings for 2016.
Why did he have to play the ‘conservative’ role? Why didn’t he just start out as a dem in the first place? He’s going to lose all conservative votes with this immigration nonsense.
I have a relative by marriage whose family came from Europe when he was five, maybe 60 years ago. He said his family was told that if they asked for welfare, they would have been deported.
And now look where we are.
Time to flush Rubio. He’s become as big of a stinker as Scott Brown.
AMNESTY TWO ISSUES NEVER TOUCHED
ACTIVE FR’S IF YOU SEE ANY CREDITABLE REPORTS OF PROBLEMS AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE HAVING WHILE LIVING IN MEXICO PLEASE POST THEM.....
(1) When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?
This is a question: Should Mexican citizens when in the US be given the same rights American citizens are given while in Mexico? This has yet to appear on any US legislator’s questionaire from either chamber....ASK YOUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS WHY IT HASN’T
(2) What makes it necessary for US to subjugate our sovereignty because of available cheap labor ? While the Godless Demo-Coms socialists encourage population control and abortion . Then complain the US is not reproducing enough citizens to replace its aging retiring workforce. But rely on (as the Romans did) on foreigners (barbarians) .to keep their welfare ponzie schemes supplied with tax money and keep the system working..
Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.
Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.
Americans cant own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash theyll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the fresh. Thats just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea lets give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .
Exactly. They can leave any time they like.
taxpayers are closer to slaves than undocumented immigrants
BINGO -— Rubio and all his associates make me want to barf!
I wonder if Rush Limbaugh is ready to wash his hands of this phony yet?
And politicians are thicker than anything in the known universe!
Precisely! This is unadulterated b.s.
Uh, Lincoln DID want to "colonize," i.e, deport freed slaves, to either Liberia or Central America.
Slavery is when you work hard and someone else reaps the reward.
I work hard and pay taxes. Illegals show up and collect welfare and benefits. That makes me the slave.
And I’m sick and tired of slavery.
Well, we did, but the Rats and the GOP-E took her down...
our savior speakeths...
But we all have to jump onboard the RINO ‘16 bandwagon now before it is too late. After all, he is better than XXX or XXX.
Guys, he is right. I grew up in an area with a lot of packing plants. There is one that continually flies in Indians from South America, bunks them in a company shanty town (which doesn’t meet the Nebraska fire code), pays them less than minimum wage, denies them workers comp when (not if) they get hurt, and then fires them en masse when enough learn English or Spanish and start asking questions.
Go take a look at the migrant worker companies. Some of their conditions are much worse.
These are things I have seen with my own eyes. Not on the news.
However Rubio is dead wrong. Amnesty won’t help these people, the companies that hire them will just dump them and go find more. If you really want to stop illegal immigrants, start arresting the plant managers, accountants, executives, etc that are hiring them. In the Midwest, the language on the kill floor of most packing plants is Spanish or an Indian dialect (a few plants with Russian and Chechan). We see this, yet no one seems to do anything about the root cause.
Now the GOP and the Dems will never do that. They want the cheap labor, and don’t really care about the workers. Again , I saw this myself. My home town of Fremont, Nebraska tried to make it illegal to rent a house or apartment to illegal aliens. The local GOP machine swung into action, along with the ACLU, the Catholic church, and Hormel corporation, to kill it. Seems the biggest renter to illegals was Hormel, and they didn’t want the profits to stop.
If Rubio is serious about helping these people out, he needs to start attacking the employers. Amnesty will only make those conditions worse. If the employers do really need those workers, then they need to pay them the same wage and benefit package that they are required by law to do for native citizens. Now that means that you will pay more for meat and veggies, but it will also end this mess.
Of course, I expect many to call me a liar. But I have seen it. I have seen a room with over 30 people living in it with locks on the outside and one bathroom. I have seen the buses come in with people that can’t speak the language, or Spanish, and then work for dollars a day. This problem will continue to you start hitting the companies that make it a policy to hire illegal aliens.
