How dumb and greedy Big Government GOP, working hand in hand with shrewd Marxist Dems, engineered its own demise

A Party’s Path to Extinction
(The American Conservative) -- by Patrick J. Buchanan --

"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.”

From A Tale of Two Cities, Sydney Carton’s words, as he rode the tumbrel to the guillotine, came to mind on reading the latest statistics on what open borders has done to a Republican Party that altruistically embraced it.

The Center for Immigration Studies reports that, since 1980, some 25.2 million immigrants have entered legally and been granted permanent status with “green cards” to work and become citizens.

“Immigration, Political Realignment and the Demise of Republican Political Prospects” is the title of the CIS report, which understates the crisis. Bottom line: The more immigrants in an electoral district, the more grim the GOP prospects. Consider a few of the largest counties in the nation.

Between 1980 and 2008, Los Angeles, No. 1, grew by 2.5 million to 10 million people. The immigrant share went from 22 percent to 41 percent. Over those decades, the GOP share of the presidential vote fell from 52 percent in Ronald Reagan’s rout of Jimmy Carter to 29 percent for John McCain...

Richard Nixon and Reagan carried California seven times on presidential tickets. Both carried New York and Illinois in their greatest victories. Yet the GOP has not won one of those three pivotal states even once in the last five elections.

If California, New York and Illinois are moving out of reach for GOP presidential candidates and the party is being annihilated in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, our three largest cities, what of red states Arizona, Texas and Florida?

They are going the same way...

The correlation seems absolute. The more immigrants who come in and become citizens, the more Democratic the country becomes.

Why? Almost all immigrants, legal and illegal, are poorer and less skilled than Americans, and depend far more upon government.

According to CIS, of recent immigrants who became citizens by 2008, by 55-30 they identified as Democrats. Among immigrants who have not yet become citizens, 70 percent identify as Democrats, 15 percent as Republicans. The sooner Democrats get them naturalized, registered and voting, the sooner the bell tolls for the Grand Old Party.

Is the GOP problem its hard line on illegal immigration?

This is a myth. According to a Zogby survey done for CIS, 56 percent of Hispanics and 68 percent of African-Americans say legal immigration is too high. Only 7 percent of Hispanics and 4 percent of African-Americans say it’s too low. On no issue is the gulf between elites and the people so wide and deep.

What would be a GOP policy that advanced both the national and party interest?

First, an offensive against the administration for laxity in enforcing our immigration laws against businesses that hire illegals. Each time a business is forced to let illegal workers go, the jobs go to some of our 25 million unemployed and underemployed.

Second, a Put-Americans-First moratorium on legal immigration until U.S. unemployment falls below 6 percent.

And what is Republican Lindsay Graham up to? Collaborating with Sen. Chuck Schumer on a path to citizenship for illegal aliens...MORE...LINK
Andy (in comments): "US employers hire these hard workers who live cheaply and send much of their salary home and/or they start families here.The system works for them and the business’ that employ them. It does not work for the least educated and much more importantly least skilled US citizens who most often neither work as hard,as capably or as inexpensively as the immigrants."

Chris Moore comments:

Andy epitomizes the “cheap labor” wing of the GOP that is selling out the country to political and cultural Marxism on behalf of short term profit. It’s really the short term greed of Republicans that have turned them into “collaborators” (as Buchanan puts it) with the cynical, Big Government, welfare-pimping Dems.

Immigrants probably are harder working at physical labor, but only certain amount of immigrants can be assimilated from Mexico/S.America without changing the entire character of the areas into which they move, and eventually the entire country. Beyond a certain point, America simply becomes corrupt, crime ridden Mexico North.

And how many children of Hispanic immigrants born in the U.S. are going to join gangs instead of working their fingers to the bone for $8/hr? Enough so that LA, for example, has a huge Hispanic gang problem — gangs engaged in ongoing warfare with black gangs.

But that’s okay. White Republicans will just move further and further away from the crime-ridden cities their greed helped create, withdraw behind gated communities with private security guards, or find some other way to insulate themselves.

The entire phenomenon reminds me of how greedy white slavers behaved in the country’s early years. They seemed to know deep down their sins were unforgivable, but their greed overrode their conscience.

Larry Sanchez (in comments): “Long ago an ancient people, a civilization and culture, were forced from their sacred land and dispersed to live in exile. The memories of their homeland and rich spiritual heritage were not forgotten and each succeeding generation longed for the eventual return of their people to their holy land…The disposed people became refugees and the neighboring states refused to accept the large numbers of homeless. The refugees were forced to live in camps in the desert. In the meantime, the immigrants who claimed their homeland anew called it Aztlan.”

Chris Moore comments:

Larry, you mean to tell me that the Spanish-mix people that comprise the Hispanic population of "Aztlan" are indigenous to the Southwest region?

That's about as big a stretch as claiming that the Euro-mix Zionist Jews who corrupt left-liberal Judeophiles and spiritually barren Christian Zionists aided and abetted in the theft of Palestine are native to that land. No wonder more and more Americans and Europeans are opposed to the US government providing Zionist Jews a blank check.

Funny, but I don't see too many Aztlanners opposing aid to Israel. I guess they're too busy rigging their own tribal land-grab under the auspices of imaginary self-determination. Or maybe they're taking lessons from the Zionists on exactly how to go about it!

Doesn't matter whether they committed a felony or a infraction, they still must be deported--because they broke the sovereign law of this nation. It's a crime to enter any country without permission. See what happens to you if your caught in Mexico after overstaying your welcome. IT'S A VERY INTENTIONAL TRAVESTY OF OUR LAWS, TO MAKE IT JUST A CIVIL OFFENSE IN CROSSING ON TO AMERICAN SOIL? MY GUESS IT WAS CONCEIVED BY THE OPEN BORDER PEOPLE, WHO ESCAPED FROM INSANE ASYLUM, OR AT LEAST IN THE PAY OF CORRUPT FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS.

. They keep repeating the--SAME TIRED NUMBER--but the US border Patrol in just the Tuscon sector, expressed, \"Only one out of ten is caught.\" The Tucson sector Border Patrol union local 2544 on the number of illegal aliens in our nation: \"There are currently 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in this country by many estimates, but the real numbers could be much higher and the numbers increase every day because our borders are not secure (NO MATTER WHAT THE POLITICIANS TELL YOU-DON\'T BELIEVE THEM FOR ONE SECOND) Said a Spokesman for the Border Patrol. \"Our illegal immigration numbers are based on an estimated twenty million illegal aliens having been present in our nation as of -JANUARY 1, 2004.\"almost four million people crossed our borders illegally 2002\" end of quote.

Other experts on the subject agree that illegal crossings have only increased since then. Please don\'t believe my numbers? Go to the US Census Bureau and read we could have a population of 438 million people by 2040, unless we halt this travesty for good? Americans cannot afford 10 million more families. Foreign nationals are very knowledgeable at cheating the IRS and the US taxpayer. They can even get child credits for their children, either not in America or in some other country. Once those here receive appropriate green cards they can then sponsor immediate family member, including people with infirmities as long as they are financial sponsored. But this is a joke, because once here the law--IS NOT ENFORCED. They then become public charges. They can collect Supplementary Security income (SSI) and other benefits. The number can never be truly calculated?

Even the US Census will be off the mark, because hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions will stay silent. Now the number of illegal immigrants who have no intention of renewing their entry visa, or have slipped past the Border Patrol (Canada and Mexico, South American countries and islands) must be deported. We need professional and highly skilled workers, but not desperate uneducated, non-or semi-skilled. We have millions of Americans and legal residents in that category. Guest workers for farms and agriculture, but they must stay in that job until their visa expires. No options!.Then go home? California the SANCTUARY STATE, ARIZONA & NEW YORK have been bled dry. Black-Americans are especially vulnerable to the illegal alien invasion. as millions of jobless have extracted from employment to rehire minimum wage foreign national applicants.

Americans with rights have been terminated for the same reasons, that parasite businesses can exploit the undocumented with reporting them to ICE, stealing their wages, confined in hazardous conditions or other severe situations. Whereas Citizens and residents have the option of reporting the employer to the labor department. The true estimate of foreign nationals in America is somewhere between 20 and 30 million? If AMNESTY is forced through the numbers will skyrocket, as countless numbers will be ready to bridge the border, just before President Obama signs the new reform. (with the wife and kids this would amount to 40-50 million people) on welfare, in subsidized housing, food stamps, WIC, more teachers, covered by Medicaid and other payments. They will not be paying any taxes because of the EIC and Child Tax credits will reimburse them. The IRS does not follow up on this type of fraud?

This is a cruel trick on every honest taxpayer is this first generation of newly legalized immigrants, could escalate with thousands bring in brothers, sisters, Mothers and Fathers. By the year 2040 the population of America could be unsustainable with limited resources, water shortages, highways crammed to capacity and a infrastructure that is falling apart. THOSE INTERESTED-THE HISTORY CHANNEL IS ONCE AGAIN TELEVISING \"The Crumbling of America.\" This Friday observe the depreciating bridges, dams, levees and 50 year old underground system of sewage in some areas. Our Survival is in peril, but they do not enforce immigration laws. In fact Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has cut the budget for the Border Patrol and other enforcement tools in the SAVE ACT and REAL ID Act. Well-documented, the 100.000 pro-amnesty protest on Sunday and the last two months of PR build-up across the country was backed by tens of millions of dollars from George Soros, Carnegie Foundation, Ford Foundation and the giant SEIU unions.

E-Verify has already under pressure to be dissolved, as it cuts into business profits by using discount labor. 287 (G) is a very successful local police detainment for illegal aliens as with ICE audits, but even that has been compromised. Fortunately, E-Verify is being upgraded with new innovations, that will detect fraudulent ID. Photo recognition being one of the new tools to leech out foreign labor. Yet the Congress keeps appropriating money to fight foreign wars or aid other countries. There is much more to learn-not- the propaganda given to us by the business world Learn so much more by surfing the Internet or go to NUMBERSUSA. Read about the corruption from both political parties at JUDICIAL WATCH. Don\'t hesitate in calling your Senator or Representative at 202-224-3121 In addition Don\'t forget to give your State assembly a piece of your mind.

Not copyrighted. TELL THE PEOPLE YOU KNOW--NO AMNESTY! It will entice Millions more to come for free government entitlements.
