    Re: GOP group rejects Minuteman candidate

    Cleaning up the freeloaders is simply an idea whose time has not yet come, even though the damage they have done in California and our country is obvious to the entire United States.

    There's always a tipping point and that point has already been passed in California and the rest of the country, but the overwhelming suppressive power of liberal demanded political correctness has kept a public discussion of the 3rd world socialist immigrant problem off of the table, but that discussion is already being held all day, every day around water coolers, at home, in bars and restaurants, eventually, it will break free and there will be more than the liberal viewpoint on the table to be discussed and concluded.

    California, presently 16 billion in debt, spends 10 billion taxpayer dollars per year to support illegal immigrants. Those sorts of numbers will drive the discussion and the candidates that are courageous enough will appear when the time is right. With Obama just re-elected by the immigrants, who have demonstrated not the slightest concern for the welfare of the United States, enough Americans have now been shocked into admitting what these people have done to us. It will implode within two years.

    Prior to the last election, the following phrase was a staple of talk radio: "America may withstand four more years of Obama, but America cannot survive four more years of the Obama supporters." There will come a time very soon when the liberals will have to deal with that belief on the part of Americans.

    There is no polling evidence of any kind to suggest that people who voted for Mitt Romney or those who voted for President Obama did not have the best interests of the United States at heart. Disagreement on policy does not mean that one disregards the welfare of the U.S., or worse.

    Also, it should be noted that the outline I sketched out (Message #14) would be consistent with the kind of balanced approach to immigration policy championed by President Reagan. In his signing statement for the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, President Reagan declared:

    In 1981 this administration asked the Congress to pass a comprehensive legislative package, including employer sanctions, other measures to increase enforcement of the immigration laws, and legalization. The act provides these three essential components. The employer sanctions program is the keystone and major element. It will remove the incentive for illegal immigration by eliminating the job opportunities which draw illegal aliens here. We have consistently supported a legalization program which is both generous to the alien and fair to the countless thousands of people throughout the world who seek legally to come to America. The legalization provisions in this act will go far to improve the lives of a class of individuals who now must hide in the shadows, without access to many of the benefits of a free and open society. Very soon many of these men and women will be able to step into the sunlight and, ultimately, if they choose, they may become Americans...

    Distance has not discouraged illegal immigration to the United States from all around the globe. The problem of illegal immigration should not, therefore, be seen as a problem between the United States and its neighbors. Our objective is only to establish a reasonable, fair, orderly, and secure system of immigration into this country and not to discriminate in any way against particular nations or people.


    IMO, there is no comparison between the broad-based, optimistic, and inclusive variety of conservatism advocated by President Reagan and the narrow, pessimistic, and exclusionary imitation peddled by some such as Mr. Donnelly.

    The GOP needs to move away from people like this so its probably a good move on their part...

    I guess he also forgot to remove the rounds from his carry on luggage...after he placed them there.
    He's a perfect tea party candidate, and an up and coming GOP go getter.

    Folks, this is the future of conservatism -- gun felons and halfwits who see Putin from their houses.

    The GOP can't. It is driven by the rightwing noise machine, people like Limbaugh and Beck, who can only take more and more extreme positions to win favor with their tea party subliterate base.

    It's like a Golem -- it's going to strangle the GOP and good riddance , I say.

    Some terms scare some people, and vigilante is one. Vigilante may not be the most accurate term to describe what the militia spirit is, but it sure is helpful for propaganda purposes.
    Mencken would've hated the Tea Party. He certainly hated its historical predecessors.

    If the result is a one party system, then we're in even deeper doo doo than we have been in. If the Libertarian party becomes the second major party, then, sure, let's do away with the Republicans.

    Rejecting a racist vigilante? Surely this can't be the GOP we've all come to know and love!
