I think his writings in his book America the Beautiful about illegal aliens and how we need them and implies they deserve citizenship is every bit as bad as his stand on gun control. Actually, worse. It is anti American. Of course now he says something different, because he's running for president. He's just another politician at this point, and one that is more concerned about foreign nationals who crash our border than he is about American citizens. Really, anyone who expresses this thrill up their leg for Carson should first do a little research: Google Ben Carson on the issues. If you still like him, fine. But at least you would be informed.
Big, you can start by googling Ben Carson on the issues: gun control and illegal immigration.
Well, at least Romney, when he ran, ran on self-deportation for illegal aliens, and even though he disgusts me now, having gotten on board with Rove and Co., he would never have advanced an amnesty had he been elected, because it would have been such a betrayal of those who believed him and he would have immediately become an enormously unpopular president, which no one ever wants. On the other hand, Carson has expressed his deep concern for illegals in his book America the Beautiful, and never once mentioned the hardships Americans have gone through because of these unwelcome opportunists. Carson thinks we need them and they should have citizenship. Now, of course, he says something different. Another flip flopper. I don't like Ben Carson. If you didn't like Romney, Carson is no better. And not just because of the gun control issue. He loves his illegals.
It just makes me laugh at all you who have anointed Dr. Carson, just as you did Rubio, and then found out he was on the side of illegals. Did you like reading in Carson's book, America the Beautiful, how he thinks: " Is it moral for us, for example, to take advantage of cheap labor from illegal immigrants while denying them citizenship? I'm sure you can tell from the way I phrased the question that I believe we have taken the moral low road on this issue. Some segments of our economy would virtually collapse without these undocumented workers--we all know that--yet we continue to harass and deport many individuals who are simply seeking a better life for themselves and their families. Is there a way to apply logic to this issue and arrive at an intelligent solution?" And not a word about the Americans who are suffering because of these opportunistic parasites. Carson goes on to describe guest worker programs, of which we already have had many, and still do, but employers find illegals cheaper and don't use them. Duh. THAT'S the problem. He is obviously so clueless on this important topic yet he opens his mouth -- and in favor of the illegals. What a great American. Of course, now that he's running for president he's changed his tune.
Why not do a little research first? Here's a quote from Dr. Carson's book, America the Beautiful: "Is it moral for us, for example, to take advantage of cheap labor from illegal immigrants while denying them citizenship? I'm sure you can tell from the way I phrased the question that I believe we have taken the moral low road on this issue. Some segments of our economy would virtually collapse without these undocumented workers--we all know that--yet we continue to harass and deport many individuals who are simply seeking a better life for themselves and their families." So says Dr. Carson. Where is concern for American workers displaced by these illegals? He goes on to suggest guest worker programs, which WE ALREADY HAVE HAD and probably still do have, showing that they guy is absolutely clueless on the issue and has no business opening his mouth. But, then, he's running for president and has so many people like you, OldHighland, that he can lie as much as he wants to and will get away with it. That's how we got Rubio, who also was on record for amnesty and lied about it later, doing tremendous damage to Americans on the issue.
What Ben Carson does NOT say is that he has flip-flopped on this issue. In his book, America the Beautiful, he laments that we have "taken the low road" on this issue and insists that we treat the illegals poorly and that entire parts of our economy would collapse without them. He never ever, in his book, mentioned the harm the illegals do, and not one word about the hapless American workers who have been displaced by these invaders. He lost my vote a long time ago. He just keeps pumping out this stuff because he's running for president and wants to be seen as "pure" on this issue. He isn't.
Ditto. Short and absolutely on the mark.
Oh, stop the name-calling. That just shows you have no argument. YOU are the one who doesn't know what was in those bills. They were well examined and documented and they would have led to more of the same --tons more of illegal immigration. You seem to be a naïve and wishful thinker. So sorry for you.
Have YOU read the bills? Mickey Kaus did a point by point analysis of the Gang of Eight's bill and it was worse than any "screeching" right wingers could imagine. McCain's bill was no better: amnesty BEFORE anything else, leading to more and more illegal immigration. IF you are an American, why do you want to give your country away to a bunch of lawbreaking opportunists? Do you have any idea of the numbers involved? Hint: For every amnestied illegal in the 86 amnesty, 5 additional family members -- EXTENDED members included were able to come here and become citizens and suck off our public benefits programs. Just do the math -- and if you believe the 11 million figure you're naïve. It's closer to 30 million, making the final figure well over 100 million over just a few decades. IF you are an Ameri
No. If you were a Floridian and knew anything about the legislature there (of course so many voters are low information and didn't), you would know that Rubio and Jeb Bush had been planning this for years. Rubio was an advocate for illegals and showed his disdain for Florida citizens from the beginning of his tenure to the end. But he is a practiced liar and won his Senate seat by lying. That set the scene for his collusion with the Dems. He was a LEADER of the Gang of Eight, not a simple and naïve young man. He is as evil as they come.
Too bad Linda won't listen to you. You make too much sense. She makes none.
