Just another example of Obammie the Commie continuing the worst, failed policies of the Bush administration.

All these years Bush was attacked but he stayed silent and now amnesty comes up and he decides to come out and speak up .

The elitist ruling class establishment of this country make me sick and the sooner Dems and R’s understand that they care nothing about this country and think of this as a game where we the voters are just idiots who have to follow because we’re always told that the other side the better.

I agree with every word.

Unfortunately, we’ve gotten past the point where man can fix the mess we’re in. Anything we do will only slow it down a little. Only He can fix it.

Fortunately, He is on our side. We can't just hope for things to work out; they won't on their own. The parasites have too big a grip on power to lose by accident. Still, if we will do the heavy lifting on our own, I suspect He will make sure that is enough. God wants us to be free . . . if we are willing to earn it.

We keep getting RINOs because the voters elect them,

Absolutely wrong.

It is because over the decades the GOPe worked with the RATs to have open primaries, allowing RATS to help push GOPe Statists to the front.

NEVER again will I vote for a RINO. I have drawn a line in the sand that will never be crossed.

Our Republic is being destroyed by the RATs and the GOPe pukes.

Conservatives need to view the GOPe and RATs as equal enemies.

Stupid is as stupid does. I’ll defend you, Mr. Bush, where you’re unjustly criticized, as I do with others. You’re on your own on this one, sir.

Operation Paperclip II is the only immigration reform I’m willing to entertain in regards to illegal aliens. Let them reapply from their countries of origin if we’re going to have a ‘pathway to citizenship’.

"If the GOP is trying to win the Latino vote with this, it may be because "you", whether that means white, Conservative, Christian, or what not, have not produced enough offspring to be relevant in twenty years."

That's a point. But aren't you wasting time typing when you could be making babies?

You do seem to be a bit sympathetic to the amnesty push, then. Not surprising.

"I agree that they should stop mnesty, but the harsh reality is they can't stop demographics."

Which is no reason to throw open the gates and welcome tens of millions of Democrat voters along with their extended families.

"Well then I guess we're going to have to show Americans the folly of this, so they elect representatives who will stop it from happening. Maybe they can help."

Yes, you've posted this before. But it doesn't change the cold fact that Hispanics elect Democrats.

"You did, above, when you said "The GOP is becoming as much of a threat to our freedoms." Again, you ignore that the elected RINOs are just that, ELECTED. Do you have an answer for that?"

Calm down. How many Republicans mouth conservative platitudes and then show their stripes once they get into office? It might take less time to make a list of those who don't. My governor, Bob McDonnell, is a perfect example. He ran on no new taxes, but just recently gave us the largest tax increase in Virgnia history. And then there are the moderate/liberal GOP scum who do their best to stifle and shut down every truly conservative candidate who makes it to Washington.

"Look, you've admitted that you might vote for the GOP even if the party openly supported sodomite marriage."

"I admitted that I won't make it easier for the greater evil to win."

LOL, and you still don't get it. If Republicans support amnesty, sodomite marriage, and everything else the left does, there is no greater evil. They are the same. Can you demontrate how they would be different?

"No, you choose to make it easier for the greater evil to win."

If your party supports queer marriage, amnesty, etc., there is no greater evil. In supporting that, you support evil and help further it.

" Worse, you choose to allow it to happen, rather than win the voters over to Conservative values,"

By awarding amnesty, right? Why not just come out and say it.

" even though that's the only way we can stop this. At least, you haven't offered an alternative that has a chance of succeeding"

The increasingly leftward GOP is not my idea of "succeeding."

(shaking head)

"So does the bobble head in my neighbor's car."

That hunk of plastic probably has a better grip on reality than you.

If so, it's because the voters are going hard left. Everybody keeps missing or evading that point.

the aren't going left you naive fool.

Three main reasons the rats are winning:

1)The evil left is importing millions of RAT voters AKA, illegal immigrant criminals.

2) outright voter fraud, especially in RAT control big cities.

3) The RAT key ally, the GOPe keep pushing Statists down our throats alienating millions of Conservative voters.

You don't belong on this site if you think "the voters are going hard left" That's a disgusting comment.

Obama, the RATs and disgusting GOPe are brutally governing AGAINST the will of the people.

Only a DUmpster type leftist would think the voters are going hard left.

"Actually, we can't win as a third party." BS..

If we don't have the numbers for motivated conservatives to take the primary, we certainly can't win over a Dem while splitting RINO and conservative votes in the general. We have to make the primaries our priority, and we have to actually show up and vote. If we run a separate ticket that wins, that means we could have taken the primary too. We can run a separate ticket that loses even if the conservative beats the RINO candidate. Those losses could be wins if we stayed in the Republican Party.

“I’m still pissed that he was the choice to keep Algore or Kerry out of the WH.”

Ok, so who would have been better ? I believe McCain came in 2nd in 2004.

In 2000 the lineup looked like this.

George W. Bush, Governor of Texas
John McCain, Senator from Arizona (withdrew on March 9, 2000 and endorsed George W. Bush)
Alan Keyes, former U.S. ECOSOC Ambassador from Maryland (withdrew on July 25, 2000 and endorsed George W. Bush)
Steve Forbes, businessman from New Jersey (withdrew on February 10, 2000 and endorsed John McCain. He then endorsed George W. Bush)
Gary Bauer, former Undersecretary of Education from Kentucky (withdrew on February 4, 2000 and endorsed John McCain. He then endorsed George W. Bush)
Orrin Hatch, Senator from Utah (withdrew on January 26, 2000 and endorsed George W. Bush)
Elizabeth Dole, former Secretary of Labor from North Carolina (withdrew on October 20, 1999 and endorsed George W. Bush)
Pat Buchanan, publisher and author from Virginia (withdrew on October 25, 1999 to run for the Reform Party nomination)
Dan Quayle, former Vice President from Indiana (withdrew on September 27, 1999 and endorsed George W. Bush)
Lamar Alexander, former Governor of Tennessee (withdrew on August 22, 1999 and endorsed George W. Bush)
Robert C. Smith, Senator from New Hampshire (withdrew in October 1999 and endorsed George W. Bush)
John Kasich, Representative from Ohio (withdrew in July 1999 and endorsed George W. Bush)

Standin in a garage don't make ya automobile now does it? You can say your from Texas, but what’cha gone and done was drag that Northeastern liberal poppycock all the way down here to Texas.

George, ya ain't no Texan...nor is your daddy. If you shared Texas values, ya would’ah shut down those borders lickety split. Seal’em tighter than a drum. But’cha didn't

You refused to do so while you wuz governor and you refused to do it when in the white house. Far as I'm concerned, you ought’ah have your passport to the republic revoked.

Now, go on and get back in your box and leave this amnesty thing to the true conservatives.

Ya got it all backwards. The republican party is controlled by a few very powerful, very wealthy folks.

If the majority of the true conservatives abandoned them, left’em to their own, they’d be the folks who could not win.

Most republicans, least wise the overwhelming majority of people I speak and am associated with are at their wits end regarding the republican party.

No, with all respect, your mistaken. Perhaps your speaking to transplants, but true native Texans are fed up with illegals. We've lived with this problem for decades.

Our insurance rates are higher, our taxes are higher, we have overcrowded emergency rooms, gang violence, drugs, we've had wages for Texans pushed down because of the flood of super cheap labor, we have human trafficking, formerly eradicated diseases are resurfacing to include TB, measles, hepatitis, whooping cough to name a few.

Trust me, even first and second generation Texans of Mexican decent want the border sealed.

The first step to ‘reforming’ immigration is enforcing our existing laws, and sending every illegal alien back to their place of origin. Confiscate every asset they own to pay for the return trip.

I hope so but I have had some fierce discussions with Texas ranchers on/near the border and they seem to think it is fine for illegals to come across and work like they always have, and many deny there are serious issues with human trafficking, drug smuggling, and other border issues. Many tell me they have so many friends and employees that are illegal, some have been here for many years and they don’t want to rock that boat. They act as though it is part of Texas culture.

Rubio, Ryan ,Democrats, Bush? do you realize that? I know democrats want that as that is their goal to advance progressive policies and install a socialist/communist state.

do you Bush, democrats,Ryan , rubio realize that you are for communism?
