With the finalization of the immigration amnesty sellout, the Republican Party has confirmed what has become increasingly obvious for years. It could care less about its supporters. The leading conservative publication Human Events did a poll of its readers and their number one issue was illegal immigration. Call me crazy but I really don't think this was what they had in mind as a solution. Let's deal with what will be the party's talking points explaining this betrayal. "We had to compromise." "This is the best deal we could get." "This will stop illegal immigration>" "This is not an amnesty." This last one is the most offensive. What else do you call a deal that turns lawbreakers into legal residents? As for the nonsense about compromise, why is it necessary to compromise to enforce laws on the books already? Is it necessary to enact a compromise bill to build the already authorized border fence and put more people on the border? Why not arm those National Guard troops and put them where they can do some good? Isn't guarding borders a traditional military function? Most former republican voters are scratching their heads and wondering what their leaders are thinking about. Good question. probably two things. One, their small business constituency loves being able to hire cheap illegals. They work harder than the domestic alternative and are less trouble. Two, the leaders seem to harbor some absurd notion that they will get more than their share of votes from hispanics, despite evidence that they vote democrat 2:1. Or maybe they are afraid of being called racists and facing a growing hispanic bloc that will vote like the blacks. Whatever. As far as I am concerned, the Republican Party has made its bed and now let them lie in it. Without me.
