You speak the truth, even though it must hurt many conservatives to admit it, due to the many other points at which we, conservatives, think we support Bush on other issues and for good reasons.
I think it would not be dishonest, at this point, to question if there has been, a more frequent disconnect between WHY WE have supported some other policies of Bush and possibly WHY he wanted them.
Thanks for the timeline.
"" So, whatever 'proposals' he offers, whether to safeguard our Southern border, or to do anything else, are bound to be as contentless and full of doubletalk as what I've quoted above. Any attempt to put them into practice will be effectively gutted ""
This has been the modus operandi for 5 years. It will not change. Bush will not relent unless stopped by the House.
If one looks back on the supposedly strong statements made by many politicians (i.e. "we need to secure our borders"), there has often been a secondary theme that focuses on "Security" only. After reading many of the above cited documents, from SPP and others, that theme is obvious. The effort to secure the borders is focusing on terrorists, drug traffickers, and criminal gangs (e.g. MS13) only. There seems to be little concern over the hordes of illegal aliens crossing the border "for jobs" who are leaning on society to house, feed, and provide education and medical care to their families at the expense of United States taxpayers. Not to mention the huge percentages that occupy our jails and prisons, also at taxpayer expense.
Can't you hear it? That's the sound of the crucible of globalization being fired up."The fact is that building a Third Wave civilization on the wreckage of Second Wave institutions involves the design of new, more appropriate political structures in many nations at once. This is a painful, yet necessary project that is mind-staggering in scope..."
"In all likelihood, it will require a protracted battle to radically overhaul the United States Congress, the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the French Chamber of Deputies, the Bundestag, the Diet, the giant ministries and entrenched civil services of many nations, their Constitutions and court system in short, much of the unwieldy and increasingly unworkable apparatus of existing representative governments."
"Nor will this wave of political struggle stop at the national level. Over the months and decades ahead, the entire "global law machine" from the United Nations at one end, to the local city or town council at the other will eventually face a mounting, ultimately irresistible demand for restructuring."
"All of these structures will have to be fundamentally altered, not because they are inherently evil, or even because the are controlled by this or that class or group, but because they are increasingly unworkable no longer fitting to the needs of a radically changing world."
This CFR illuminist global conspiracy theory gets wierder and wierder... now it's the Real Matrix?
If I take the Red Pill can I punch through walls and dodge bullets too, or when I'm ready will I not have to?
Paranoid or not, when your casting around for an explanation for Bush's inexplicable attitude toward the illegal invasion going on, all theories are worth thinking about.
