PRO-IMMIGRATION MCCAIN WILL LEAD THE GOP

Rate this Entry

In case you haven't heard, the anti-immigration card didn't deliver for Mitt Romney and he has just announced he has dropped out of the Republican race for President. While Mike Huckabee in theory could still win the nomination, the math makes it virtually impossible. So John McCain, who stuck to his guns in favoring a sensible immigration policy and who warned his opponents over the anti-immigrant tone the campaign was taking, will now be the Republican nominee for President. And given the pro-immigration positions of Clinton and Obama, the country is assured of at least four years of an immigrant-friendly President. It will be fun to watch how the rabid anti-immigrant wing of the GOP will treat McCain.

    Of course, it's probably too much to note that the MSM consistently lies about this issue, and that that plays a very large part in the public's knowledge of and perception of the issue. In particular, the MSM has allowed McCain to make countless false and misleading statements without once calling him on it.

    All we need is a nice Immigration friendly Congress to go with it and it could be the perfect storm for Immigration Reform.

    Hope more congressmen will stop listening to extremes on both sides come up with a sensible solution. Both extremes are equally bad in this debate.

    Give me a McCain Presidency with 56-57 Democrats in the Senate and a 10-12 seat Dem gain in the House and the legislation should pass.

    This is an interesting misrepresentation of the issue, there are't really two extremes, just one and it is the people that can't tolerate undocumented immigrants.

    No. They cannot stand any immigrants particularly non-white immigrants like this individual still ranting and raving against the 1965 Act...

    While I fully understand the angst of Conservatives in their policy opposition to John McCain blunders like Illegal immigration, Conservatives are beginning to amaze me in their inability to see the larger picture.

    Many talk radio hosts have battled a McCain nomination. Even Focus On The Family Director Dr. Dobson (who I admire ) has declared his refusal to vote for McCain.

    This astonishes me because it's the same as saying "if we don't get the conservative I want, We'll let the country go to hell in a hand basket."

    This, in my opinion is very dangerous and makes our future prospects harder - since our children will be growing up in the aftermath of such a decision.

    Anti McCain pundits and commentators such as Rush Limbaugh have ventured the idea that perhaps we should sit this election out and let the Dems have a term in office, claiming it might pave the way for a future shot at a candidate he and others will like in four years.

    While I understand these expressions of dismay, I think it's shortsighted. Imagine the damage our country will endure if Democrats control all three branches of government for 4 to 8 years. .

    This would give liberals what they will treat as a clear sign from America that is it ready to move sharply to the left. Conservatism will lose most of it's teeth and the liberal agenda could easily reverse all of the progress we've made in the war on terror, Tax reduction, Pro Life, and other extremely important issue.

    We can always address the issue of immigration again in 4 years. What we cannot afford to see happen is a liberal agenda that makes illegal immigration the least of our country's problems. Our country may be so torn up, it won't have the time to even visit the issue, like we can today.

    There is no such thing as a quick recovery from 4 years of liberalism unchecked. We may be facing what will take years and years of damage to undo. What's more, there's no guarantee that it WILL be undone. The passage of even one single liberal law is extremely difficult to outlaw - as if Roe V Wade hasn't taught us this already!

    Rush Limbaugh and others may revel in 4 years of liberal destruction as a talk radio host who can use the material, however all it takes is one liberal judge appointed to the Supreme Court to unravel the one ace we've achieved in the last 8 years. This doesn't occur to me as a smart decision for Conservatives to be making..

    As Evangelical Conservatives know, Pride cometh before the fall, and I hope they will study that verse before deciding to approach this election with dismay rather than enthusiasm.

    Questioning McCain was right and highly useful for a time and a season. But there are greater threats looming on our horizon than John McCain.

    It's time to put our differences aside and get with the business assuring our children, they will not grow up in a socialist, liberally dominated world. This may be our cross roads, and it is certainly no time to be staying home on Election Day.
