They claim citizenship efforts would bolster votes for Democrats
I remember Hillary Clinton tap dancing around this issue as a Senator as she
knew of her higher aims as a Presidential candidate. I notice the expression on
Senator Schumer's face that is happy because the freshman Senator Rubio is
pushing for Schumer's wants. The President and Democrats know that they
may not get this bill but they want the vote as the Republicans will be known as
the demons on this. Senator McCain's face shows his support of this bill.
The Republicans have to show bipartisan support but aren't happy how the
Democrats are politicizing this bill. The President can't run the
government but he will throw his darts at anyone trying to oppose his direct
campaigning with the Senate. Hopefully, people will see the partial light of
2014 and 2016. Hillary is resting for now and getting her daily Chicago type
briefing from some of her husband's cohorts based in Chicago. Hillary has always been a political being that put up with her husband's
antics to get where she is today, whether carpet bagging or using his shirt
tail. She took the blame for Benghazi and will surface again. She
will need answers.
Several of the previous comments make referrence to the poor leadership we are
getting from our elected politicians, not just on the issue of immigration
reform but on just about everything as politians are more concerned about
getting elected than doing what is right for the country. I also endorse this
idea. We need term limits to get our politicians to stop or reduce this
self-absorded mentality they have to keep themselves in office and to get back
to a government of the people and by the people, not just a few selected
people.As for immigration reform, I support this issue. I believe
that it could help equalize the issue of Democrats and Republicans if it is
handle properly to show how each party is trying to help the country and not
just a few voting blocks.
One need look no further than the 2012 GOP platform to discover who represents
the party.The delegates voted to endorse the platform. They speak for the
party, not Marco Rubio or John McCain.And the platform is very clear on
the subject. We oppose amnesty because it rewards lawless behavior and is not
fair to those who follow the law and enter legally.As much as a few
politicians want to make it appear otherwise, the grassroots party members spell
out the real GOP position.
Who would have thought. The discussion is not on what is best for America. Instead, the discussion is about the party.That should tell
us all a lot about our elected officials first priority.
It has all boiled down to the main ussue....how many votes are a stake. The law
of the land no longer matters to the politicians in power.
The question being juggled as first priority by both Democrats and Republicans
should not be not be "What what is the best for the Party"? The
question should be: "What is lawful under the constitution?" and and
within that; "What is best for the Nation in the long term?" Both
parties need to address the right questions and do the right thing. In Fact
that would be the proper way to start out on every issue.
America's problem is our elected politicians are not focused on doing the
nations business and serving it citizens. The politicians have put their own
self serving interest and party interest above patriotism . American politics
has grown to be the biggest dirtiest an most corrupt business in America. There
needs to be a cleansing in Congress or a third party or a parliamentary.form of
government; but until the people can chase the snakes out of the chambers
government the nation wii not heal.
