I was afraid Rubio would wind up going this route. I am very skeptical of people these days.
I’m not convinced he played us at all. We’re so hungry for a Conservative that we fall in love the first nice thing they say.
We’ve got to get off that kick. Christy, Rubio, first one person does it then another.
[[Were so hungry for a Conservative that we fall in love the first nice thing they say.]]
And that’s precisely what’s happening- peopel need to slow down, wait, and see the real condidates before leaping on the bandwagons and gettign burned like we have been-
So far I’m liking (I think) what I’m hearing coem from Ted Cruz- but who knows, that coudl change as well too
Rubio is delusional if he htink granting millions of ‘wards of the state’ (which is what a LOT of illegals are- livign off welfare, not working- collecting food stamps, SS and even disability (although they were perfectly healthy when they crossed miles and miles of deserts to cross over into our country)) atre goign to ‘pay for border control’ How? With AMERICAN’S Money to begin with? With food Stamps?
(Note- I am NOT suggesting all illegal imigrants are on welfare and won’t work, there are infact many good people, hard workign individuals who do truly just want a better life- and are willign to work and contribute to htis coutnry if given hte opportunity to do so- but stats shwo an alrmingly high number of illegals ARE on welfare, do collect food stamps, ARE abusign our systems, and the stats also show an alarmingly high number of VIOLENT CRIMINALS coem across the border every year- to the tune of 80,000 violent criminals every year- every one of these 80,000 will ahve to move to a neighborhood somewhere- and be a danger to that whole comunity- Is thsi the person Rubio thinsk is goign to give a crap abotu obeying our laws and paying for border security?
Back in the 1970’s I would accept the mainstream media’s characterization of someone as a “conservative” and then get burned when they said or did something different.
Now we’ve got talk show hosts saying guys like Rubio and Ryan are “conservative” and I get a laugh out of it because I’m not being fooled anymore.
The mask is off and all the tough speeches and YES votes on phony symbolic bills or NO votes on bad bills that end up getting passed anyway mean nothing to me.
Over 90 percent of the Republican elected officials are phonies with no principles.
Those 70 or so folks who are challenging Boehner on amnesty for illegal immigrants are just putting on a smoke blowing show to make it look good for us folks back home and help win their primaries next year.
I will not vote for my GOP Congressman in the primary or general election next year because he is a phony who supported Boehner for Speaker in the first place.
