I am always advised to be as civil as possible, but no matter what you do, some people take the truth to be hard. Moral cowards are defined as people who are so afraid of what the people in power think that they refuse to do what they know is right. Too many of the Republicans are no longer demonstrating the moral courage we thought they had when we elected them. ~C.A.Davidson
Rush Limbaugh: GOP makes no sense
Why are the Republicans willing to commit suicide? Because that’s what it is.
Let’s review. Last fall, remember, leading up to the government shutdown, the Republican Party leadership is making sure they’re out there, they’re publicly saying, “Focus on Obamacare. Get rid of Obamacare. We gotta get rid of Obamacare.” They wanted us to think that’s what they’re focusing on, and do not lose sight of it. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz pop up and take ’em seriously and it results in a government shutdown. The Republican Party leadership goes absolutely batty, “Oh, my God, you’re killing us! We’re gonna get blamed for shutting down the government and people love the government. People don’t want the government shut down,
Now they’ve done a total flip-flop and to heck with Obamacare. They don’t seem to care at all even though it’s failing, even though it’s ripe. I mean, it’s never been — and it’s been this way for a long time — it’s never been a greater opportunity for the Republican Party to connect with a majority of Americans across the spectrum. The opposition to Obamacare knows no bounds. People from all income levels, people from all walks of life, all religions, all creeds, all three sexes, it doesn’t matter, there are opponents, and they are the vast majority. And it is getting bigger. And the Republicans who last fall said “Don’t do anything to take the focus off that,” have now taken the focus off that and have shifted to amnesty!
If you look at national polls, you find that amnesty is important to 3% of the population. Obamacare polls at the top of issues the American people think are important, need to be addressed, fixed, done something with. The minute that polling data comes out, we drop our pursuit of Obamacare, which was tepid anyway as a party, and now we’ve shifted at our retreat, which is a good name for what’s happening here, retreat, to amnesty and advancing amnesty. It doesn’t make any sense.
Let me give you some numbers. Phyllis Schlafly has a report coming out where she has looked at just reams of polling data and other demographic data on illegal immigrants. Ann Coulter used some of it in a column that she wrote about this earlier this week. She made the point that Phyllis Schlafly’s report was embargoed, but Coulter said (paraphrasing), “I don’t care, it’s too important. I’m gonna use it anyway.” So she did.
Phyllis Schlafly put this together and here are just some of the highlights of this. “According to a Harris poll, 81 percent of native-born citizens think the schools should teach students to be proud of being American. Only 50 percent of naturalized US citizens do.” Naturalized citizens equals immigrants, legal, illegal, whatever. This is a huge problem. That is major. It cuts against the notion that there is assimilation.
