Eric Erickson, Red State -They That Are Fated to Be Fools Have One Consolation
While this is playing out, John McCain is demanding the President give arms to the Syrian rebels who may or may not be on our side after they kill off Assad. John Boehner has decided to vote for the farm bill, which is filled up with corporate waste, greed, and bribery. And I, having declared myself opposed to the immigration bill, but favoring not rounding up and shipping home 11 million people, am receiving hate mail from conservatives for daring to not want to throw every hispanic resident out of the country. Concurrently, Mario Lopez of the Hispanic Leadership Foundation has postponed a call in which he, a Republican, was going to declare much of the conservative movement racist for not supporting this harebrained Schumer amnesty scheme.
On top of that, Peter King and Lindsey Graham want to amend the First Amendment to silence dissent and Republicans in Congress have joined hands with Democrats to declare the NSA is a-okay.
The Republican Party as it exists in Washington, DC has lost all connection to its base and the pulse of liberty.
Marco Rubio has allowed himself to be used by the Democrats to divide his own party. The Democrats know the issue of immigration brings out the crazy on our side like most military issues do to the Democrats’ side. Rubio played, willingly, right into their hands. Now the Democrats and guys like Mario Lopez are screaming racism, much of the Republican base is doing its best to prove them right through over the top rhetoric, and the Democrats are thanking their god the GOP is now fighting itself instead of focusing on the IRS or using both the IRS and NSA matters to form a larger critique against big government.
