Biting The Hand That Fed Him

There are not too many people who like this immigration bill. After almost two week's worth of debate, the favorability of this bill still cannot crack any higher than 25-26%. Well over three-fourths of those polled are absolutely against this bill. But that has not stopped the president and his loyalists from demogoguing the base that supported them:

Some people just don’t like Mexicans — or anyone else from south of the border. They think Latinos are freeloaders and welfare cheats who are too lazy to learn English. They think Latinos have too many babies, and that Latino kids will dumb down our schools. They think Latinos are dirty, diseased, indolent and more prone to criminal behavior. They think Latinos are just too different from us ever to become real Americans.

No amount of hard, empirical evidence to the contrary, and no amount of reasoned argument or appeals to decency and fairness, will convince this small group of Americans — fewer than 10 percent of the general population, at most — otherwise. Unfortunately, among this group is a fair number of Republican members of Congress, almost all influential conservative talk radio hosts, some cable news anchors — most prominently, Lou Dobbs — and a handful of public policy “experts” at organizations such as the Center for Immigration Studies, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, NumbersUSA, in addition to fringe groups like the Minuteman Project.

That came from Linda Chavez, a well-known and well-respected conservative pundit. Secretary Chertoff has attacked the base that voices it's concerns. And President Bush has also done so. My question is simple and direct: Why are they biting the hand that has fed them? Why are they turning on their base? I have heard a lot of nutty theories on this, and one that sticks in my head (formented through the conservative chatrooms, and chalked up tio Rush Limbaugh for coming up with the theory) is that this bill is designed to destroy our party.

As we can see, those in senior or influential positions withi the administration sure seem fit to draw out the long knives for those opposed to this, but I believe their motives have another, more globalistic side to them rather than the push to destroy the Republican party. If this bill succeeds, it will be one more step in the direction of a global economy and a global community. Furthermore, it will be one more nail in the coffin of US sovereignty. Ronald Reagan noted in 1986 that a nation without borders is no nation, and it is becoming increadingly obvious that goal is the aim of those in this government.

No matter what happens, we, the people, cannot allow that to happen american sovereignty is of the utmost importance, and it is a guaranteed liberty of this land. To give it up, accepting foreign rule, is precisely what the Framers had tried to avoid. However, in this day and age, and especially on this piece of legislation, those that are playing the demogoguery cards seem to have lost their way and forgotten the lessons that the Framers taught us. Worse, some of them seem to have forgotten their oaths to the nation.. If this is what the two main parties i this nation are to become -- shadows of themselves -- then indeed, it is time for a chnage to occur.
