Immigration Reform Plan is a Farce

The republicans are trying to beat the democrats to Amnesty. It is time to abandon the republicans. They have abandoned the conservatives. They treat the conservatives like the democrats treat the blacks. They are spineless. It's time for a real third party. With McCain in the fray on the illegal immigration problem you know all is lost and amnesty will happen.

Amnesty doesn't have to happen if we are willing to stay on top of our politicians like we did the last time they tried it. We shut down the White House switchboard voicing our outrage back then and they killed it. I feel your pain. It is so sad to have two parties that are just two sides of the same coin. The GOP is slowly being taken over by moderates and becoming little better than the Dems. Neither party has any regard for their voters. All they care about is winning over the Hispanic, LGBT, womem and Independant voters. That is why I am going to switch to Independant as soon as my term as a Precinct Committeeman is over. Then I'll be an Independant Hispanic woman and both parties will have to work for my vote.

On further reflection, I realize that you are actually supporting Obama's Divide and Destroy the Opposition Strategy. Are you really a Conservative?

So your solution is to split the vote so that the liberal/progressives/democrats will win most if not all future elections. With your plan they would not need a majority of the vote, but merely a plurality. With essentially a two party system it generally takes over 50% of the vote to win, but with a three party system, it could take as little as 35% of the vote to win. Your plan would split the non-democrat vote while leaving the democrat vote intact. The DNC would love to have your plan go into effect.

PARIS -- A bipartisan group of senators has just lit a soggy fuse under the immigration debate. The statement of principles tabled by four senators from each party is such an impotent byproduct of compromise that calling it bipartisan is redundant. This manifesto of mediocrity fails to address the biggest immigration problems facing America -- starting with the question of "Why?"

Does anyone ever ask WHY there are so many illegal immigrants in America? While it's understandable that foreign citizens want to come to America for the great opportunities, why do so many of them insist on doing it illegally? Maybe...
