A Nation of Laws, Part 1 of 3 Pandering Politicians
Marches around the country demanding illegals be allowed to stay in America demonstrates there are those who believe they are above the law. It also illustrates how pandering politicians will seize any opportunity to curry votes regardless of the impact on our country.
What has become of America these days? I've long heard that we are going to hell in a hand basket, but what we have had to deal with from our gutless wonders in Washington - both Republicans and Democrats - is more than most of us can stomach.
The protest marches in Los Angeles and elsewhere around the country in late March demanding that illegals be allowed to stay in America - despite the fact that their mere presence here is a crime - only goes to show the propensity and even a preference on their part for considering themselves above the law. It is blowhards like these that only add fuel to the fires calling for a return to American isolationism on the world stage. Let other countries clean their own stinking messes for a change. As much as Europe is becoming an increasingly 'low-rent' district for troublemakers and other 'problem children', let them be the ghetto, the gutter district and the human dump heap of the world instead of America.
When will these perpetual ego-stroking first class narcissists who masquerade as so-called 'distinguished officials' on Capitol Hill realize that they have hijacked our national security? When will these sellouts stop 'polishing the apples' of these illegals while talking out of one side of their mouths while they give the shaft to Americans and legal immigrants by sticking us with the bill and the liberal venom that spews out of the other side of their mouths?
This protest was in reaction to legislation that passed the House in late March making the presence of illegal aliens in the United States a felony under federal law. These illegals and their entitlement mentality are only seeking to destroy this once great nation. I no longer believe America to be great on the grounds that no politicians, be they elected-for-life or appointed, have the stones to stand up to these people. They are more interested in sucking up and brown nosing than anything else.
Comfortably in bed with these protesters is the present-day incarnation of the once respectable Democratic Party - now a bastardized, corrupt and downright evil institution - whose only interests in these people (primarily Mexicans) - is their vote. Unfortunately, all too many Republicans are being their willing enablers for exactly the same reason. With promises of perpetual handouts for these people at the expense of bankrupting the country as a whole in the process, Democrats seek to enslave these good (and for the most part, honorable) people by keeping them under their collective thumb, much like Al Sharpton and 'Shakedown' Jesse Jackson do with Black America, and not unlike Muslim thugs in the Middle East who keep their people trapped in 7th Century oppressive rule, while limiting their modern contribution solely to the perfecting of the car bomb.
We need to understand one key ingredient behind the motives of the Democrats and the RINOs here: They are seeking to pad their illegal vote totals in yet another pathetic, blatant and illegal attempt to steal control of the House and Senate in midterm elections this fall. With news of the voting scandals as pervasive as they have been and will continue to be, such as voter fraud in Philadelphia and Milwaukee, combined with a stolen governor's race in Washington in 2004, and lest we forget, incumbent Senator John Ashcroft (R-MO) being defeated in 2000 by a dead man - Governor Mel Carnahan - who died in a plane crash less than three weeks before the election. How was Ashcroft defeated? Because former House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO) was able to keep some polling stations in St. Louis open for almost an hour past their 7:00 p.m. closing time, despite the fact that such action was a direct violation of the law. But to Democrats, they are a law unto themselves and to hell with anyone else - and don't forget - God help you if you cross those evil Democrats.
How will Democratic Party officials give these illegals the shaft once they become citizens or in the alternative, are enticed to vote illegally, and you KNOW they will do just that? Much as they have done in the past with anyone of color seeking a higher station in life, the Democrats succeeded in savaging Miguel Estrada because he dared to stray off the reservation of corrupt liberal thought. These evil Democratic minions want Hispanics living in America to be their gardeners, groundskeepers and domestic help; they do not want conservative Hispanics to be in any role of governance whatsoever if they can help it, and will do their level best to prevent that from happening, just as they did when Miguel Estrada was forced to pull his name from consideration for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals after a death battle with these scum that lasted for over two-and-a-half years.
Let's not forget that California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown was subject to the same abuse during her confirmation hearings for appointment to what was originally supposed to be Estrada's slot, with "Chucky" Schumer (D-NY) leading the attack. If that's not bad enough, what makes it worse is the blatant double standard he espouses with his belief that private citizens should not - under any circumstances - be allowed to exercise their Second Amendment rights and own weapons, yet his entitlement mentality as a so-called 'privileged person', like that of most Democrats, allows him to get what is considered by many as the crown jewel of New York City: an unrestricted concealed pistol permit for his own use. To Chucky, laws are for the peasants, and not for people like him, or other hypocrites like "Dingy" Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and last but not least by any stretch, the once-acknowledged moral leper of the Democratic Party, Teddy "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy. Such elitism makes normal thinking people grab a bucket in order for their lunches to make a round-trip.
Tomorrow, we will look at the immigrants themselves - both legal and illegal.
