At The Heart Of It: Illegal Immigration.
It appears as though our ‘Republican’ candidates have once again forgotten how to spell the word illegal. Notice the use of the term ‘Republicans’ as opposed to ‘Conservative’ candidates.
Our assumed first-tier candidates have been pussy-footing around illegal immigration like social workers daintily stepping around piles of poo at ‘Occupy Oakland’, or one of the other super-fund cleanup sites engendered by the useless, wasted piles of human garbage that inhabit these places. Oh, and did I mention that they are the DeMarxists’ political action committee as well?
They make at least as much sense as the Democrats themselves… which is to say, not much. It is, however, one of the cornerstones to which the Marxists have affixed their fading brand.
The illegal alien issue is going to be huge with the American people. We’re sick to death of hearing about how “we”, the American people, have to be ‘caring’ and ‘compassionate’ towards those who have breached the the sovereignty of our borders, breaking the most basic law of the land.
The overwhelming majority of these people are not simple farmers looking for work. What they want, friends, is that which you have in your pockets… if you have anything left at all after three consecutive years of uber-liberal Marxist governance under wannabe Caliph Barack Hussein Obama, that is.
To claim, as we have heard time after time, ad nauseam, that these ‘poor little people’ are simply here to find work and a better way of life, is garbage. I’ll grant you that for some of them (the illegals), particularly the ones who’ve been here the longest, that may be true. Does this change the fact that by their very existence on this side of the border they are committing a felony every single day they are here? Either the laws of our country apply to everyone within the borders of the United States of America, or they do not. It’s that simple.
The constantly thrown up straw-horse of the left, and now the mantra of certain linguine-spined Republican candidates, that we can’t possibly deport eleven million people is disingenuous… more than that, it’s specious in the extreme. In the first place our government (you know, those vacuum-headed ne’er-do-wells luxuriating in the exemptions from the very laws they write for the rest of us to follow) have been lying about illegal immigration numbers all along. They’ve been claiming numbers of illegals through our borders at around ten to twelve million for twenty or more years. Excuse me? My contacts tell me that as many as ten thousand ‘poor farmers’ may be flooding through the undefended smuggling corridors every few weeks. My best guess and, surprisingly enough, confirmed by someone who has worked the border for many moons, would be upward of twenty million.
Puh-lease, let us not descend into the quagmire of the very weak claims that these people pay taxes and are somehow a net asset to this country… horsecrap! Illegal aliens are a net loss and a burden, reaching into the multiples of billion dollars per year. “But Skip, they contribute so much to the richness and diversity of our nation.” Really? Where? Here in California alone, illegal immigrants cost California taxpayers 15 billion dollars per year. Twenty per cent of the prison population of this state are illegal aliens. Trust me when I say these people aren’t here to hold hands and sing Kumbaya. This brings us back to the current Republican presidential candidates.
Newt Gingrich is going to be just about the brightest light in any room he is in. That’s why I can’t for the life of me see why he just can’t seem to get it on illegal immigration. We don’t want those people here, sucking on the life blood of our country. Mitt Romney is weak on immigration and the border and always has been, so there’s no surprise there.
The issue is going to become more and more heated as the campaign season progresses, but we must focus on a very narrow front here. The DeMarxists could care less about the plight of the poor ‘illegals’. What they do know is that they cannot win without a continuous influx of illegals to bolster their voting roles, along with the population of hundreds of cemeteries across the nation.
Any Republican who attaches him- or herself to this issue will find themselves the darlings of the left. Lauded far and near as Republicans with ‘understanding’ and ‘sympathy’. But it won’t win an election and is just about guaranteed to put Maobama back in office.
