GOP constructs its own irrelevancy

The trendy fallacy promoted by political pundits is that the absence of amnesty on the Republican platter equates to a starvation death of the GOP.

Although it’s not difficult to understand the various Chambers of Commerce push for low wage, unskilled labor via amnesty, the idea of Republican politicians working to create at least 20 million more Democrat voters is effectively a sure-fire suicide plan.

Those paying attention have noticed the “A’ word “has all but disappeared from the debate.  It‘s been replaced with other less provocative terms such as “earned legalization,” favored by Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) or “the need to come out of the shadows and reintegrate into society.” These voguish slogans take the onus off of the illegals who disregard our sovereign borders and disrespect our laws, while accessing our benefits and habitually engaging in more criminal activity once they arrive.  Some of these often serious offenders have been departed numerous times.

Illegals previously released from custody have subsequently been charged with tens of thousands of other crimes, including murders, sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a report from the  Congressional Research Service. Still the Obama administration refused to deport them. The Daily Caller reports an August 2012 non-partisan Congressional Research Service report stated the “decision not to deport some arrested illegal immigrants enabled a crime wave.”

The Republican amnesty-maneuver proponents claim their plan includes a fine, payment of back taxes, learning English and civics, a criminal background check and proof of employment. They are mum when it comes to actual enforcement provisions of any of those contrivances, akin to the DREAM Act which enables amnesty for those up to age 30, brought to the U.S. as young children.  Who determines the veracity of illegals claiming such status?  Counting on illegal invaders to become honest brokers is nothing short of self-delusional folly.

Yet the legislation in the works with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) driving the scheme  — assisted by Paul Ryan — is expected to make it across the finish line. Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA.) has zeroed in on pushing what has become known as DREAM Act Light — legalizing those who claim they were innocents brought here by their parents. Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA.), has regional interests that move him toward supporting this travesty. Agricultural interests in his district are eager for more low wage laborers.

The bills initially offer a “piecemeal” approach rather than a path to full citizenship. The rest of the pieces will eventually fall into place, joining the outdated concept of birthright citizenship and chain migration, which other nations are abandoning. Meanwhile the United States will be even more vulnerable as incentives to bypass our legal immigration process are created — while disingenuously hanging the Republican party out to dry.

Nearly a year ago Ann Coulter got it right with this incisive commentary titled, “Hispanicked GOP elite: They‘ll respect us in the morning.”

Coulter was right then.  She’s even more correct in retrospect.

    Very well said, SRAZ!

    The new ploy is “legalization” without citizenship. It’s perfect! The anti-citizenship crowd goes back to sleep, the GOP still gets cheap labor, and you and your family tree get to subsidize it for an eternity.

    Ann Coulter tells it like it is yet again today. “The US Chamber of Commerce VS. America”

    • ZOO says:

      My mistake. The article is from Michelle Malkin.

      • PV PC says:

        Malkin is one very bright lady! She certainly captured the essence of the Chambers of Commerce. When I see they have endorsed ANY candidate, I take my vote elsewhere.

        Thanks for the link, ZOO.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      It’s good to be able to say “thank you” for the compliment, ZOO. “Gracias” hasn’t been mandated by those who claim to be our representatives — yet.

    The Republican Party is slitting its own wrists to appease what they view as a voting bloc within its grasp. They are wrong. My mother’s family is Mexican. The conversations at family gatherings would appall most reasonable people. Republicans are not high on their list, but neither are many other Americans. These are not new arrivals but people who have been in Arizona for years. many have degrees. One cousin married an American girl of Irish heritage and for this disloyal act, he was ridiculed. Now his children are considered outsiders. I’m marred to what I affection ally call my “Heinz 57.” She has never been fully accepted by them. We only attend events because of my mother. When she’s gone, so will we be. My dad’s family (non Latino) presents quite a contrast.

    Hispanics are mostly a “closed shop.” There is nothing Republicans can do to win over the majority of this predominantly far left bloc.

    Let’s face it, we are not represented by those who were elected to do just that. We are disregarded, kicked to the curb and given the boot while illegal aliens get passes and gifts instead of deportation for participating in an invasion of our homeland .

    This awful economy has created more applicants than jobs and half of America (including illegals!) receives some type of benefits paid for by their struggling neighbors. My single voting issue will be amnesty related. I want to know, minus the BS, how they intend to represent me and my family.

    If I get any doubletalk regarding the plight of illegals, if they are deceptively called “immigrants or undocumented,” I will speak up loud and clear. I hope others of you will join me. “Vote against my interests and those of my family,and I’ll vote against you”. Simple as that. These are the words they need to hear.Haven’t you also had enough?

    We’ve all listened to the DC double-speak about these glorious plans to “legalize” these 11 million (read 40-50 million) shadow dwellers by imposing pretend requisites. But we just NEVER hear about how this will be accomplished. I mean, Who’s gonna do it? Our immigration agencies are already overwhelmed trying to deal with those who are trying to LEGALLY immigrate, those who obey the rules and have shown their sincere desire to obey our laws, those who will now be pushed off of the immigration bus in favor of hordes of criminals. That’s the American dream? What about their shadows?

    But really, who will do the AMNESTY? The AMNESTY trolls never talk about how their “legalization” will require HUGE expansions of government, not just federal but state-county-local as well. That will require hiring millions more government employees, further expanding the gov’t dependent culture. The new gov’t employees will have to be paid, given offices-tools-supplies and staffs (ooops, more employees). And all that new welfare we’ll have to come up with – where will the money magically appear? Why, from the Big-Gov’t Money Tree of course. Let’s raise taxes, take more money from the few working taxpayers left in the economy. And for the rest, we’ll just print some more pretend dollars and sell them to China and Iran. By the way, taxes paid by government workers are not real taxes. They are dollars that have already been taken away from the workers and are now being recirculated through the gov’t. They do not represent any production at all. In fact, they represent the suppression of the economy – of US.

    Funny how the AZ4, being as smart as they are, never question what they are being sold by RINOS Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, Priebus, et al. They never ask themselves “What is good for the little folks who elected me, the ones who are actually paying the bills and being victimized by hordes of illegal criminals?” Funny how they never do? Townhall, anyone?

    Wake up AZ, it’s time for all of US to wake up. Start challenging your friends (and clergy) (and political candidates) who feel all warm and fuzzy about helping our third-world invaders “legalize” as to how much does the Golden Goose have left in her? After all, we cannot sink much lower and hope to resurface again. The communists are taking US down for the last time.

    God bless America.

      Excellent point regarding taxes paid by government workers. I hadn’t thought that through before. Thanks for another fine comment.

      “…When we learn how many people there are and what their individual circumstances are, then we can decide how to proceed with each individual…” – Mitt Romney , March 27, 2007 – AP

      Had somehow Mitt Romney and amnesty whore Paul Ryan succeeded in defeating Obama in 2012, there is no doubt in my mind that we would STILL be standing at death’s door as it relates to ceding the U.S. to Mexico.

      I’ve seen many comments here pledging to ‘vote against’ any individuals who are involved in passing amnesty legislation. Will that really be sufficient to revenge the foreverness of what the Republican party is about to do? Hasn’t the GOP already projected their post-amnesty loss of incumbents and/or congressional seats?

      The Republican party has worked over 14 years to inch along toward this moment, and they have done so as a PARTY, not as a handful of pro-amnesty “mavericks” or “class of 20??.”

      Will the party still have any effectiveness whatsoever in legislating conservative principles AFTER creating 30 million new Democratic voters, or will they (as SRAZ has eloquently put it) become the party of “irrelevancy?”

      If a horse breaks its leg, you shoot it.
