In addition to being the one ethnic group most opposed to capitalism -- even more than Occupy Wall Street protesters! -- polls show that Hispanics are more pro-abortion than other Americans (66 percent of Hispanics versus 50 percent of other voters) and favor gay marriage more than other Americans (59 percent compared to 48 percent of all voters). They also support big government by an astronomical 75 percent and Obamacare, in particular, by 62 percent. (Polls: Pew, ABC, ABC, Pew, Fox)
Of course the Democrats want these illegals voting!
It is of no concern to the Democratic Party that illegal aliens are lawbreakers and overwhelmingly minimum-wage workers. Liberals don't care about the working class having millions more low-skilled workers competing with them, and they certainly don't care about the country. They just want to win elections. (If only it would occur to Republicans that they need to win elections, too.)
Next, Democrats will be demanding that we set up polling booths in the prisons and sending Marco Rubio out to argue that we already have "de facto" prison-voting.
Like so much mischievous legislation, Republicans are being told, "We have got to do this yesterday!" If we don't produce a global warming bill, the American people will have our heads! If we don't pass campaign finance reform tomorrow, the voters will punish us! You're not seriously thinking of blocking a new gun control bill, are you?
Then, it always turns out: No, there's not going to be a backlash. The only politicians ever punished for a gun vote were the entire House Democratic caucus in the Republican sweep of 1994. The only politician who was ever punished for his position on global warming is Al Gore.
But Democrats love to act like everything's a crisis, so Republicans don't have time to think and can be stampeded into doing something stupid. When it comes to government, doing nothing is often the best course.
Republicans have to understand: You are not going to be punished by Hispanics for voting against this Obamacare-like monstrosity of an amnesty bill. If you have Hispanics in your district, they're already voting against you.
The Lindsey Graham argument is: Now when they vote against you, they'll really hate you.
Hispanics are 8.4 percent of the electorate, so we're talking about the 80 percent of 8.4 percent of voters who will never vote Republican, anyway. They will allegedly hold this one anti-amnesty vote against Republicans -- despite polls showing Hispanics don't care about amnesty. Those are the voters Republicans are determined to make hate them less, while enraging every American who doesn't benefit from cheap labor or Democratic votes.
Meanwhile, don't imagine, Republicans, that you can buy off your anti-amnesty constituents with another meaningless vote to repeal Obamacare.
Does it occur to these brainless wonders in the GOP that the Democrats wouldn't be agitating for amnesty if it didn't get them votes? That's all it's about. Liberals want the rest of the world's poor to come here not only to raise their children, clean their houses, manicure their lawns and cook their meals, but to give birth to the Democratic children that liberals aren't having.
