Comments on: Gingrich takes heat over “amnesty” http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2011/11/23/gingrich-takes-heat-over-amnesty/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: SteveoOOo http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2011/11/23/gingrich-takes-heat-over-amnesty/comment-page-1/#comment-421915 Thu, 01 Dec 2011 00:51:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=36862#comment-421915 Nothing scares Republicans more than voters. That’s why they are working feverishly to make it as diffcult as possible for people to register, to vote, and have their votes counted. Anyone who is legally residing in the United States should be allowed – no – REQUIRED to vote, in every election.

One person, one vote. Not one dollar, one vote.

Newt’s words struck home. Not only will it solve the problem of the illegals it takes away the huge carrot the Democrats have always used to garner votes and one of their best talking points. Legalized but UNABLE to VOTE. That is the key, AND, this would only come AFTER the border was closed, sealed and hopefully anyone coming through would be stopped with a well placed bullet. Americans are sick of elected officials caring only about their next election instead of protecting America.
My vote is for Newt.

Romney would say one thing to northern moderates and another thing to midwestern conservatives, and there would have been no issue. Newt would have earned big dollars lobbying and then campaigned on not being a lobbyist. But, in today’s world, there are clips available on YouTube to prove the inconsistencies. The reality is that we’ll never be able to form a coalition party in an environment like this. http://bit.ly/rYjsL2

Maybe our unemployment numbers would lower if we actually closed the boarders? No, we want super cheap labor that we can abuse so businesses can make higher profits instead. Has America lost its mind? We’ve got one side wanting everything they can grab for free (abuse of social programs) because they don’t want to really work for a living and the other side who doesn’t feel they should pay taxes even though they’re making millions in profits. No wonder the tax bills are only being paid by the average smuck once called the middle class. Divided we fall. We’re devided that’s no doubt.

Republicans have displayed a fervent and well developed lack of humanity for years now and they want candidates that reflect this core principle. If the candidates want to win GOP voter support that must be very strong on torture techniques like water boarding; they must smile and cheer when a young person dies because they did not have the foresight to buy health care insurance; they must degenerate gay soldiers and most of all they must be very negative toward any person that is in this country without proper documentation. Fear, hatred, lack of generosity of spirit are the hallmarks of the modern Republican. Of course this goes hand in hand with a firm Christian faith.

Gingrich also favors selling off more national park land to private interests. Probably to house the massive population growth he and his like minded politicians are trying to force on the people of this country.

It’s time to protect the legitimate economic and security interests of our citizens by enforcing the same immigration laws as every other nation on the earth…including Mexico. Join us at fairus.org to see how you can help stop the insanity of mass illegal immigration. We need doers, not talkers, to stop this insanity.

Frustrating that so many Republicans have to come out with guns blazing and John Wayne threats against Family values (ie. staying together as a family). You would think that the Christian Party would be the ones to protect family values. They sure spent a lot of time talking about it the last time around.

The audience in DC was comprised of the monied/intelligent Republicans, not the folks you need to pander to in the primaries. If the candidates uttered any of the usual foolishness, they’d have been booed like the gay soldier was by the rubes.
