Rubio has thrown his hat in the ring of making 12 million illegals legal. We have been sold out again.

IMHO, Republicans will never solve the immigration problem until they end federal government welfare. If there is no government welfare, then I'd be happy to let law abiding citizens immigrate. How can Republicans support more immigration without swelling the welfare/takers ranks? The Democrat unions don't want legal immigration, and apparently the Democrat politicians like illegal immigration.

and the left has already started their four-year smear campaign on Rubio. By the time elections roll around, he will have been branded all sorts of things, e.g., tax cheat, pedophile, non-citizen, inexperienced, no moral compass, lack of character... oh wait - that's all the stuff that the left loves - they ignore it in their candidate but it's a FAULT if it's a Republican.
The very quotable British novelist Samuel Butler observed that, “Self-preservation is the first law of nature.”  Reports coming from Washington seem to show that this instinct is increasingly demonstrated in a very short-sighted set of actions by institutional Republicans in light of recent successes where grassroots held their elected representatives’ feet to the fire; a fire fueled by the party platform.
