Democrats drunk on Power and Jazzed by the Use of Dictatorial Tactics!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Rogue tigers, having tasted human blood for the first time, often become “man-eaters.” Man is an easy prey for the ruthless tiger. Now that the democrats in Washington have tasted the political blood of their constituents they have become emboldened to hunt again. This time they intend to use their successful back room, closed door, tactics to ram through the New Amnesty Bill referred to as the Comprehensive Immigration Bill. (Dictators, the world over, are just SO proud of the Democrats!)
The comparison between the Bolsheviks in 20th century Russia and the Socialist Congress of the US today is striking. Their driving force is their lust for raw power coupled with their completely insane ideology of a utopian society in which everything is free! That is all wonderful – until the money runs out and the nation collapses in on itself, as America is about to do -- if she is not rescued and rescued very soon.
Flush from their pyrric victory with ObamaCare they now intend to ram the New Amnesty Bill down our throats before we have a chance to recover and rally our forces to stop them. They don’t care because it matters not to them that we don’t want it. All that matters is that they declare those illegal aliens, already within our borders as citizens, as quickly as they can, so they can vote for democrats. I am surprised they are not already registering them to vote as they take their first steps across the wire and into the US.
I know I’m going to get slammed for this but the plain truth is this: We need a literacy test, a competency test, and proof of citizenship – AT THE VERY LEAST-- before one is able to vote in America. Can the would-be voter read? Can the would-be voter even speak English? Is the would-be voter mentally competent? Does he/she even know what day of the week it is?
The democrats are counting on the sub-class of US citizens who are permanent wards of the government to save their collective behinds this coming November at the polls. They are the Americans who depend on the government for their very existence. They vote for democrats because democrats promise them their continued dole every month. The millions of illegal aliens, once granted citizenship, will, for the most part, join the millions in this sub-class and add their votes to the democrat side of the ballot. THAT is the reason for the Comprehensive Immigration Bill… or the New Amnesty Bill.
The ignorance of the average American voter got us the socialist government we have today in America. Already we have seen a humongous decline in America, on all fronts, since the election of 2006 and it only quickened its pace upon the election of a socialist President in 2008.
Recently I wrote the following:
“We have said all along the problem with illegal immigration across our southern border could be fixed, almost immediately, if the government wanted it fixed. Now we know for certain that they do not want the southern border sealed. See, those are democratic voters coming across that invisible line headed north into the land of milk and honey and along side them on their northward trek is cheap labor!
Basically, Americans STILL want the border closed and sealed FIRST! It is common sense to stop the leak before bailing. Once the border is closed and sealed then taking care of those aliens here illegally can begin and mass deportations can begin.
Yes, Americans ARE angry with the illegal alien mess and the numerous attempts by our government to offer them amnesty, which would, in time, offer them citizenship. But, as Rasmussen learned when doing a survey, Americans are not mad at the illegal aliens. No! They/we are mad at our government for allowing this to happen in the first place!
Those of you who support open borders do not, I repeat, do not try to beat us about the head and shoulders with the old saw that says America is a nation of immigrants. See, we already know that because our ancestors were immigrants, too. Mine came into the country, legally, in 1789 through what was then Charles Town Harbor and were assigned a place in the 96th precinct of the state of South Carolina. Notice - they came into this country LEGALLY! That is all we expect of any who want to immigrate to America. Do it legally and we will welcome you with open arms. Do it illegally and we want you caught and deported forthwith!
It is becoming ever more clear, everyday, that America’s biggest problem with illegal immigration is not with those who illegally break into our country and help to bleed it dry, but with our government which refuses to uphold the laws already on the books. Had those laws been enforced we would not be in the situation we find ourselves today. Plus, the problem of what to do with these 12-plus million illegal aliens would not be a problem, at all, if the government would simply follow the laws on the books today.
The bottom line for Americans to ponder is… what do we do with a government that refuses to uphold/enforce the nation’s laws? Well, let me ask you - suppose you had a business and an employee consistently refused to follow the rules of the workplace. What would you do to that employee? See? The answer is simple. The ONLY way we are ever going to get relief from this problem is to clean the house in Washington.
My friend and fellow blogger, Alan Caruba, recently said in his piece entitled “A Crisis of Governors”: “What, in fact, Americans are witnessing is a failure of government at both the state and federal level. The nation has managed to elect too many people to public office that are so clearly inept, incompetent, and untrustworthy, it poses a threat to the republic.” Alan, as usual, is spot on. America’s most dangerous enemy, at the moment, is its own government! I would add that, in my opinion, America’s second worst enemy, at the moment, is its own ignorance. It was through the ignorance of the American electorate that these pitifully inept politicians were elected to office to begin with.
Until we can come up with a solution to the problem of an unresponsive government we are stuck standing on the sidelines observing the largest land invasion and take-over of a country in the history of the world.” (From “Amnesty for Illegal Aliens Back Soon? You Bet!” by J. D. Longstreet)
By the way, don’t buy the government’s argument that they cannot round up and deport the illegal aliens in our country today. The Eisenhower Administration managed to round up -- and deport -- 1 million and 3 hundred thousand illegal aliens in what was tagged “Operation Wetback” in 1954! I dare say with the technology we have today we could do a whole lot better… if the government just wanted to do it.
