Yes, you are correct. In the early 20th century immigration was halted in response to public outcry.
Today the public can protest all they want. It will not change anything. There are actions that can stop Obama’s executive actions and congressional actions. The former can be halted in days while the latter in a year at best.
We will see many more soon.
I completely agree. There is definitely a faction here that wants to burn it all down. I don’t see how that possibly leads to something better than we have now. I ask again, how in the world are we conservatives going to obtain political power by refusing to participate, i.e. not voting, or by forming political third parties on the margins?
As you wrote, “No one with a brain advocates voting R at all costs...” None of the bomb throwers have yet shown me a viable alternative to reforming the GOP. Maybe they think constant pessimism and bomb throwing at the GOP (ignoring the Democrats of course), is going to make the situation better.
And this time with the primaries and election over they might just get something passed on this.
Next year Bohner will have more GOP votes that he can lose on a vote and still pass something.
I don't expect anything good to come of this.
Well said. When folks intend to punish the pubbies by taking their conservatism and leave the party, this just takes one more conservative vote out of the primaries. Probably will guarantee a RINO or libtard getting nominated. I do understand their frustration and anger but their actions are wrong headed IMHO and are dangerous to the nation in the long run.
Who here is involved in their local GOP? Speaking strong on the conservative issues? Informing the local ranks? Challenging the elite’s path?
VOTERS WHO VOTED FOR REPUBLICANS THIS MIDTERM: "Et tu, Boehner?" Referring to how Speaker Boehner betrayed and stabbed midterm Republican voters in the back with his passage of the recent traitorous spending bill.
BOEHNER: Who is Judas? Why do people keep calling me Judas as I walk down the street? Why did someone recently leave 30 pieces of silver on my doorstep? I only want what is best for America. As my new secret friend Obama likes to say: "It was the right thing to do.God bless America!"
The Republican wing of Uniparty is getting ready to start doing its part to destroy America.
Considering your cunning plan just empowered the senate to the GOP, strengthened the GOP in the house and they both IMMEDIATELY refunded ALL of Obama’s evil, then turned a blind eye to Cuba and FULLY SUPPORTED amnesty, you might want to crawl under a rock with the other RINO backers rather than double down on idiocy.
Or are you being paid to keep conservatives on the plantation? One way or the other, you are as big a problem to this country as any admitted liberal since you want more of the things destroying it.
Obama was photoed signing "memos" on AF One---not an "executive action." Why? B/c an E/O comes w/ legal baggage that the conniving Boobamba wanted to evade. Both "memos" are now on the Whitehouse website.
The scam works this way: signed Boobamba memos instruct federal agency factotums to come up with plans (that must meet Boobamba's global conspiracy to overthrow the US govt w/ Third World federales and their cadres jumping the US border).
The federal agencies then "invent" Committees to do this (the better to overthrow the US govt). Then "Administrative Rules," after a comment period, will be published in the "Code of Federal Regulations," which magically turns them into law........ using federal fairy dust.
So Boobamba is shielded from responsibility---he doesn't have to take the hit. Behind closed doors, he tells federal factotums what he wants.....and faster than you can say "the combo plate w/ extra hot sauce".....the overthrow of the US govt commences.
THE "DELEGATION" HORROR STORY--A Federal agency MO since 1946. It's down to a science: (1) publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), (2) make the comment period really short, (3) stonewall any negative comments, and, (4) publish the rule, which (5) NOW has the force of US law. No Congressman was ever involved, and Boobamba doesn't leave his DNA on it. Yet again, why "Delegation" is ominous for liberty---why the writing of administrative law by federal agencies - is un-Constitutional. (Thanks to FReeper Regulator's info.)
FREEPER ACTION NOW: Write your governor; call your state attorney general. Nullification means power to the states and power to the people.
The judiciary has consistently ruled against the nullification doctrine, asserting its unique, judicial right to declare laws unconstitutional. But this executive order isnt a law. And given its extremely shaky legal footing, it isnt difficult to imagine a federal bench recognizing the states right to disregard federal orders that dont clearly have the force of law.
And that would be a tremendous tremendous blow against the executives assumption of legislative powers.
But in the shorter, more direct term: It would force the Obama administration to go on offense, perhaps suing the states to enforce a law........ that isnt a law.
They’re not even there yet.
Doesn’t matter when the leadership calling the shots is, Socrates. Same leaders, same agenda. Oh and those leaders are marching FORWARD! with their extermination of conservatives from chairs/committees as well.
Yea, you have America’s best interest at heart alright.
You elected the Kenyan-Marxist, EO, packer man-child.
The US has never had it this bad!
You elected his enablers. I voted for a conservative.
Don’t you get it that no one buys your crap anymore other than the remaining Freeper left? Your crew managed to drive off a lot of good posters with your GOP or Die bullshit. the rest of us arent gonna play along.
So go tell your bosses at RINO HQ you haZ great success in the past but now haZ a fail. You are to be mocked. Nothing more.
Ping to Freeper Left flareup. Another Mitch/Bhoner supporter speaks up.
So, when does your guy start turning things around?
When your guys are thrown out of office.
“My guys” are Paul LePage and Bruce Poliquin.
The Republican primary voters seem forever fixated on betrayal. It’s all they know.
