Worf, I print this once a month to help people remember:"Shortly after
his inauguration as President, George W. Bush announced on January 25, 2001,
that his first trip out of the country would be to Mexico to meet with, Mexican
President,Vicente Fox.Bush's explicit goal was to make good on his campaign
promise that if he were elected President he would forge with Mexico. At the
center of this relationship was the thorny issue of immigration, the movement of
Mexican workers into the United States, both legally and illegally, and more
importantly, their treatment and fate in the US. For seven years the Bush
administration made good on its promise and guaranteed the unfettered movement
of cheap Mexican labor into the United States and to secure it through routes to
American citizenship." Maybe GW's intentions were intended to be
good but by 2002 this country was flooded with illegal aliens. Overnight, good
paying jobs for Americans were cut in half. From janitorial to high-rise
construction Americans lost good jobs. Thanks to Republicans and Bush.
@LOU Montana,It's no secret minorities give a large percentage
of their votes to Democrats. These votes are bought for through benefits, and
our country has accumulated a large debt because of it.Our leaders
have sold us out, to advance their wealth through political careers.Your narrow focus on George Bush, perceived conservatives, and Republicans,
are blinding you from reality.Our national debt is greater than all
the funds of citizens combined.As a nation, are we ever going to be
foreclosed on? If yes, what would that be like?Has our President,
and Congress, done us any favors?
After reading all the loving comments from the Conservatives above me it is no
wonder Latinos vote a Democratic ticket. You commenters need to examine
your comments from a distance and really listen how you sound. Fact
still remains, there are millions of Latin/Hispanic people who are third and
fourth generation Americans. These same Latin Americans fight in wars and pay
taxes just like everyone else. Illegal aliens are the life blood of the
republican business plan. Once they have lived in America long enough they see
how little they are paid and turn against the people who hire them. Soon they
take work from the contractors who originally hired them. This is how the
immigration plan has been backfiring on republicans for years. You bet they are
voting Democrat to protect their jobs from other illegal aliens.
Clinton is organizing minorities and Latinos? Is she sending them emails?
Eighty percent of immigrants vote Democrat. Nuff said!
There is one question that is never answered by the left.If the
republican party overwhelming supported the civil rights act, and they certainly
did with much higher percentages from the very beginning compared to the racist
democrats, why would racist democrats leave the democrat party to join them?The dixiecrat claim is not even logical. It makes no sense. If anyone left the racist democratic party it was most certainly for other
@atl134The "dixiecrat" is myth perpetuated by the extreme
left.The racists never left the Democrat party.Al Gore
Sr. - Never left the Democrat party.Sen. Byrd - Never left the Democrat
party.LBJ - never left the Democrat Party.Sen. Hollins never left
the Democrat party.Gov. Wallace never left the Democrat party.and list goes on and on.The democrats fought long and hard against
the civil rights act until it became too politically unpopular to do so then
they falsely claimed they supported all along.The only thing that
changed after the civil right act passed was the false story of who the
Democrats are.Hatch left the democrat party around 1970 was he a
so-called dixiecrat? In fact if any left the democrat party it was
because the Democrat party was moving so far left beginning in the sixties.And the Democrat party has now moved so far left and taken over by
socialists, marxists and progressives (communists), that the moderate right and
center right now looks like extremists to them. Another false story the left
are now telling.
@SvenOK-I'll just give you one racist comment made by the current
front runner in the GOP race:"When Mexico sends it people,
they're not sending it's best. They're sending you people with
lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us.
They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapist.
And some, I assume, are good people"Outside of a few Fox loyalist most
would say that's a racist belief and comment.
@SvenSouthern Republicans had higher rates than Southern Democrats of
opposing the civil rights act. Northern Republicans had higher rates than
Northern Democrats of opposing the civil rights act. So why were more Democrats
than Republicans opposed? Because Democrats controlled the South... back then.
Democrats aren't getting the white vote in the South these days. Most of
them left the party (the Dixiecrats), and eventually joined the Republican party
when Nixon was doing his Southern Strategy.
My thought is that most of the things old Sven referred to happened before the
Nixon plan to turn white racists into Republicans using his Southern Strategy,
which has worked pretty well. Show me a race hater today and I'll show you
someone whose father was a Democrat but who himself is a GOP loyalist who
frequently emits the term "RINO" to refer to anyone whose hate is
FT said:"Either Latino's will vote for a Democrat or
they'll vote for no one. The GOP has already alienated that base with their
racist comments and fear mongering."=====When all
else fails, the Left use the race card. Getting very old. Please
provide specific examples of racism you claim??Let's talk about
who has the real history of racism in our nation shall we:* Jim Crow
segregation laws were enacted by Democrats* The 1924 Democrat
National Convention was host to one of the largest Klan gatherings in American
history* The 1964 Civil Rights Act: Democrat support 61%; Republican
support 80%. Interestingly, former Democrat Senator Robert K Byrd (former
Exalted Cyclops in the KKK) filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as did
Democrat Al Gore Sr.* Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt gave us
the disgraceful Japanese Internment Camps* Democrat Senator Ernest
Hollings and his history of racial slurs towards blacks *
Margaret Sanger, Liberal Icon and founder of Planned Parenthood, in her 1939
"Negro Project" had as her goal, the desire to greatly reduce the Black
population, or as she referred to them, "human weeds." Ever wonder why
so many Planned Parenthood Centers are in the inner-city? 13 million black
babies aborted since 1973.Thoughts?
It's interesting that some politiians are promising Latinos that they will
help them break the law of the land. Only those who tell illegal aliens that
they must go home are supported by the law.How weird is that?Latinos are a weak political force because they don't naturalize
and they don't vote. Fewer than 25% of green card holders bother to become
citizens. And there are been great efforts made to encourage them. They waived
the English requirement, allowed dual citizenship, offered free classes, and
even waived the $680 fee...and they still didn't move the needle.The only real influence of Latinos is the Anchor Babies who don't need to
do anything but register to vote.
Either Latino's will vote for a Democrat or they'll vote for no one.
The GOP has already alienated that base with their racist comments and fear
Organize? I'll bet. I suspect it is more like pay for play. This woman is
incapable of playing by the rules.
Sorry Latinos, but you can't trust the words coming from her mouth.
We're talking about Hillary Clinton here; these are probably illegals
she's referring to. With her e-mail scandal ramping up, she's going
to need all the votes she can get. The two Democratic frontrunners:
1) an old white female who can't tell the truth, and 2) an old white male
who's a Socialist. You can't make this stuff up. :-DNote
to Hillary: your biggest enemy isn't the GOP, it's Barack Hussein
Obama...he's the one pushing this investigation of your e-mails; he wants
