Note to Ryan: Put a sock in it, son. Your time is up.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

Marine General James Mattis, to Iraqi tribal leaders (Note: Mattis did NOT say "BLEEP". He threw the F Bomb)

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Tell me again why I felt thrilled when he was chosen by Romney.  I can't seem to remember ...   :nometalk:

The GOP is determined to commit suicide.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

Pass amnesty and it will not be a question of "if" the GOP will be annihilated, but "when."

You can deny reality all you want to, but that won't stop it from hitting you like a ton of bricks.  There are only two choices for the GOP:  (1) like a man trying to stop a river from flowing by standing in its midst with his hands out - until he's swept away by the current - vainly oppose any sort of legitimate immigration reform along these lines and make enemies of the very people the GOP is going to depend on to remain politically viable in the near future, or (2) like a judo expert - skilled at turning the opponent's own momentum against him - work with the momentum of the oncoming flood to direct it into beds that are more benign and that do not do violence to the fundamental principles on which America was built (I'll give you a hint, they don't include a xenophobic reaction to "ferners"), and continue building and expanding the GOP's political base into the future.

It's stark, it's harsh, it's not your daddy's immigration, but it's reality.  Deal with it.

The truth is that the GOP will NEVER get the immigrant vote, whether legal or illegal. That is the reality.  Even the Asian immigrants, those who logically should vote Republican, vote democrat overwhelmingly.  Historically, the democrat party has always been the immigrant party.   The only chance the GOP has for salvation is to slow the immigration flow, particularly the flow of illegal immigrants.
