Politico ^ | Jun 12, 2014 | SEUNG MIN KIM

I’ll bet if a million or two of us showed up on his porch he’d reconsider.

“Eric Cantor doesn’t change immigration reform.”

No, but the American people are waking up, and REAL immigration reform (as opposed to open borders) is coming.

We will have to wait until the dem-tyrants are out of office, but it’s coming.

Poor, slow-witted, weepy Johnny boy.

No, Eric Cantor doesn’t change immigration.

But we grassroots voters sure do.

Better run away and put on a fresh pink tie, little Johnny boy.

Not only that, but just read on the net that even Sessions has withdrawn
too.

Sure be nice if the Republican Base had some representation in Congress.

The illegals, “free sh*t”s and crooks have the Dems.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has the Repubs.

The Republican Base has.....??

Guess we’ll have to replace many others in the primaries, including Boehner (hopefully).

I can only guess that conservatives thought the timing was not right
to strike. The coming new congress will see many Bonehead allies
retire, in addition to many new GOP reps coming in.

That may be the best time to strike.

It would.

It would also be nice if we had enough voices to defend those who represent us and attack our opposition. The few voices we have don’t get out to the world enough to make our case and destroy their case.

Well, I guess it’s war then. We have to unseat every one of the RINO bastards, even if it means voting Rat in the general. They must go.

Boehner is in denial. Boenher’s chances of passing amnesty in any kind went from slim to none. Fat chance Johnny that you’ll get anymore votes by hook and crook than the handful of RINOs that you have now, and that’s about 10 Rs.

Yeah, Boehner, flood the country with people who will never vote for you or your party. Good idea. For an encore, he should urinate in a glass and see if it turns into wine.

And the other Boehner calculus. Boenher knows dang well there is no chance, but he and other RINOs are addicted to Chamber of Crony Capitalism's big donations so he's got to keep playing the game to keep those big fishes on the hook.

Well we know Boehner will not be getting Brat’s vote to remain as Speaker will he?

Boehner and Cantor will attempt to inflict as much damage as possible for the next 6 months until the next congress.

These people do not care for the wishes of the people.

**Boehner responded: “The issue of immigration reform has not changed.”**

That’s right John-boy - it hasn’t.

“The corporatists have spoken! Screw the middle-class!”

Speaking to that, this is the reason for my tagline. Many of these corporations operate on very thin margins. Losing 5% or so will hurt. Only then will they listen.

Sure, mom and pop shops cost a little more, but the service is better and so is the quality. And why not keep the money within the community?

True, just because the leaders want something to pass doesn't make it automatic. And everyone of those House members are up in Nov.

Immigration reform does not automatically equate to amnesty

Positive aspects of a potential reform bill

1) Secure Borders

2) More rational selection of immigrants for example young highly educated refugees from Europe, UK, Africa and Asia. Set higher standards for new immigrants if they are going to be vital for the economic development of the country as we have been told by our politicians.

3) Crack down of false identity fraud

4) Crack down on non citizen voting. Illegals are felons and convicted felons lose their voting rights .

5) All immigrants by law must have a sponsor and are obligate to provide for their own welfare - no public entitlements for illegals . If legal immigrants who follow and respect our laws are not receiving welfare, why should illegal aliens do so.

6) Eliminate IRS fraud such as illegals claiming dependents in their home country who may or may not even exist so they can get the tax credits plus earned income tax credits

If a “Republican” who would vote for amnesty gets replaced by a Rat who votes for amnesty, what is the difference? The country is doomed if enough of either type vote for it.
