"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
 
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan
 
"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792
 
"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams
 
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

“The message we were trying to get to the Republican Party was that if they want to get Latino vote once again, they need to support immigration reform,” Salvador Cervantes, who refused to give his group’s name.

Nothing but self-serving lies. The highest Latino support Republicans have had was around 40%, and that has fallen to around 30% due to both past legal and illegal immigration that resulted in amnesty for the illegals.

And polls have shown that recent arrivals would vote about 80% Dim.

The real question is how any Republican could believe that supporting amnesty for illegal aliens could ever result in gains for the party.

one of several fallacies with the Senate bill is that although they withhold citizenship until several benchmarks are satisfied, there is no doubt in the world that the first bill filed in federal court to will remove the requirement, will succeed, and citizenship will quickly follow - of that you can be certain!

Doesn't matter, it's still Amnesty.

Don't fall for their ruse!

So the lady just up and comes illegally into the USA and then has the fortitude to tell the Nation that It must give recognition to her presence. Why doesn’t the young lady use her energies to make her homeland a desirable country? These kind of persons do not believe any social restrictions apply to them. Send them back to the home country.

Racist.

This isn’t about a race. It is about illegal immigration. If one race is over-represented, it does not make this a racial issue.

I’m sure that if the R party supported Obamacare, homosexual marriage, and huge increases in all of the entitlements and the public hanging of anyone earning more than a million dollars a year (except professional athletes, those in the film industry and rap stars) they would get a lot more votes too.

Mr. Cruz opposed the immigration reform bill that GOP Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida helped to steer through the Democratic-controlled Senate, where it passed on a 68-32 vote, garnering the support of 14 Republicans.

Why don't the remaining GOP Senators who did not support Rubio's Obama-Lite amnesty bill also speak out? Is Cruz the only one with the sense and courage to do so?

I’m Latina-and my ancestors were already in America before there was one-so I guess that stupid girl thinks I’m an ethnic traitor, too. Ted Cruz supports everyone who is in this country legally-the ones like her need to be sent back, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00...

For the same reason Cruz wouldn’t want to talk to a convicted bank robber looking for a pardon.

“get Latino vote once again.” Hey, Sal, point me to which elections you are talking about where the majority of Latinos voted for conservatives, limited government, personal responsibility, and freedom.

“who refused to give his group’s name.”

Perhaps its “Commie Illegal Invaders Agitating for Reconquista”.

“Carolina Canizales, 23, a member of United We Dream, said she came to the country undocumented and that Mr. Cruz has refused to listen to advocates of immigration reform.”

Carolina—have you ever stopped to think that maybe Mr. Cruz is listening to the citizens rather than to law breakers?

And if the Republican Party wants to get the vote of the millions of Americans who want our existing immigration laws enforced and who oppose amnesty, they should write off the worthless Rubio and his worthless immigration reform bill.

Congratulations for that one extra step! No offense to Ricardo Montalban, I picked his Trek character only because of the actors heritage. “Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalbán y Merino, KSG was a Mexican radio, television, theatre, and film actor. He had a career spanning seven decades,”

And before I’m flamed, I respect Ricardo and his acting, have no idea what his politics were. Okay just checked he was a Republican. Sorry for misusing your memory Ricardo!

Ricardo Montalban never was a US citizen.

From his Wiki page:

Although he spent most of his life in the United States, he remained a citizen of Mexico and never applied for American citizenship

The real question is how much longer can we attribute their behavior to stupidity? Sooner or later we must face up to the truth, there are Progressives within the GOP that have the same goals as the Progressives in the democratic party.

Extremists Posing As DREAMers To Threaten the American “Citizenship” Dream for Mexican Immigrants?
Both Mohammad Abdollahi (Iranian immigrant) and Prerna Lal (Fijian immigrant) are co-founders of DreamActivist.org.

Far right wing media outlets like Brietbart already appear to be anti-Mexican but they also have intentions to use a couple of radical leaders who refer to our Nation as “Amerikkka” or have anti-white views as the poster children for the DREAM Act even though they know damned well most of the DREAM Act students have pledged their allegiance to our Nation and are aspiring to become contributing Americans of our society. Wouldn’t it make sense for the far right wing media outlets to highlight the patriotic students who want to achieve the American dream while contributing talents or the education they received here?

Mestizo, if you want to be very exact, rather than PC-like most whose ancestors came from Spain in the 1700’s-Native American + Spanish makes Mestizo. But what is in a label-all are called Hispanic or Latino anyway, unless they insist otherwise.

And pardon me-that should be “The United States of America”, not just America-strictly speaking, the US of A at that time was the thirteen colonies-what is now Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, etc was Spanish territory, or New Spain. My ancestors lived and ranched in what is now Texas...

I think a fair number of them just no longer have any fight in them on some issues, particularly the amnesty for illegal aliens issue. They just want to get rid of the issue so they won't have to deal with it anymore. Very short-term thinking to make it easier on themselves with little thought to the longer term result most anyone is able to see: millions more votes for the Dims and few more for the Republicans.

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) spoke today at the 2013 Values Voter Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Some of Obama’s “paid operatives” showed up to disrupt, but Cruz showed Republicans how to handle hecklers, calling “Obama’s paid political operatives.”

He wondered aloud if anyone was left at the “Organizing for America’s” Campaign HQ! ”I’m actually glad that the president’s whole political staff is here instead of actually doing mischief in the country”, he said to raucous laughter and applause.

Lolzzzz. No wonder why they hate him. He's FUNNY, too.

If Obama ran for president in 2004 he would have got 65% of the Latino vote because they love celebrities.

Bush ran against Gore and Kerry. Clinton was going to gift the GOP by cutting immigration by a third but the RINO senators blocked the Jordan commission.

If Hilary runs in 2016 the GOP needs to focus on blocking WV and KY and winning IA and OH.

The hispanics and western liberal whites are clustered in the west the GOP’s future electoral college is in the rust belt working its way up to 70% of the white vote.

There was never 10 million latinos in the western Sunbelt before Ted Kennedy passed his immigration bill.

The southwest only became populated and livable with tens of millions of people when Americans settled there.

Obama believes Arizona territory had enough Latinos to produce 2 million grandchildren today.

We know how Obama operates. He likely went to some of the Latino activist groups and promised them favors (probably citizenship to their illegal family mmbers) if they would organize groups to heckle Cruz and get under his skin. Why dont we get a bunch of black Republican activists to ask 0 what he’s done for them, lately and put the shoe on the other foot. He likes to play games with people’s heads worse than a blonde teenage cheerleader.

Ted Kennedy was an idiot who is likely burning in hell, but even California belonged to Spain a couple hundred years ago, as did Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Most of those people came here to get away from the Spanish government, same as people came from the British Isles, France, etc to get away from those governments.

“The southwest only became populated and livable with tens of millions of people when Americans settled there.”

Texas has been been part of the USA since about 1845-from 1836 until then, it was a country called the Republic of Texas. Arizona and New Mexico became states in that same era, but they were territories. Since there were enough Hispanic/Latino families in those places-along with later-come immigrants from Germany, Prussia, Poland, and other places, to have a pretty thriving economy, what Americans are you referring to?

The original ranch-actually three, now-is still worked and lived on by my family members-I spent much of my childhood there, unless my dad was stationed overseas, and it is happily miles from any city-not all of us want to live in a hive...

Country people like me, and preppers don’t have any love of big cities-they won’t be sustainable for long, if the s*** ever hits the fan, because there is no farming or animal husbandry going on there to provide food for those millions-there isn’t even any game to hunt.

Obama has no more practical knowledge of geography or history than he does anything else-remember “57 states”? Does he also believe the moon is made of green cheese?

Your screen name/handle is sadly true-and he hates coal from every other place as well...

[Art.] The GOP-controlled House has not taken up the bill, which would grant quick legal status and work permits to most illegal immigrants. But it would withhold a full path to citizenship until a number of border security benchmarks are met.

Or until the Democrats are ready to accept ownership of the United States Government for the next 200 years.

Their first item of business will be to set up a negotiation with LaRaza and MALDEF representatives, a schedule for the expulsion of cracker gringos from the Western United States. And especially Texas.

Note: New Obama-Regime U.S. stamp has appeared w/ picture of an obscure Mexican songstress superimposed on a Texas flag. Symbolism 101, anyone? Anyone?
