A vote for immigration reform is a vote for amnesty. No matter the provisions put in place to avert that, those provisions, just like our current laws on the books, will be ignored while the legalization process will move forward at lightening speed.
We’ve been fooled before. The GOP-e needs to understand that there is a line in the sand here. We won’t be fooled again. Sell out our values, our culture, our heritage, and our founding principles, and you will be dead to us.
Hannity asked Ryan the other day if he was concerned that “immigration reform” would create a civil war within the Party. This isn’t some concept limited to FR. They know. They do.
The GOP-e is torn between its donors and its base (not the same people). They are trying to walk a thin line. If the GOP-e is bound and determined to put its donors above its base in order to pass amnesty, then the Party is done.
In 2006, amnesty was defeated because the establishment rightly determined that their base would cry out louder than their donors. Since then, the establishment has demonized the base in their own minds. The propaganda attack they’ve waged with Rubio, Rove et. all and bought with Zuckerberg’s money and ads should tell you how the GOP-e views this. They’re all in for amnesty this time, base be damned.
Amnesty will destroy the GOP. Not in 20 yrs. In 2014.
What happens when “Where else do conservatives have to go?” is answered by, “Go to hell!”
Passing amnesty is a declaration of war. There’s a rebellion brewing.
“Amnesty will destroy the GOP. Not in 20 yrs. In 2014.” This.
