Some people have short memories (and I'm not talking about you, EagleUSA). It's one thing to attack Romney on issues such as RomneyCare but to forget that Conservative favorites (including some of my own) such as Sara Palin and others are actually on video conceding their own support for some sort of "path to citizenship" for illegals, you would think that like ObamaCare only Romney and Obama has ever come out with a notion of Amnesty for illegals.

True, Romney is not a conservative. And we do not want Americans to think that he is. The last thing we want is for "Right-Wing" to be redifined as anybody who thinks like Susan Collins or Mitt Romney.

If we lose credibility making such claims that only Romney supports Amnesty we will lose credibility when we try to tell the American people that he is not conservative.

We've already gone down this road once earlier in the primary when most of the candidates were still up on that stage. The debate ended with videos of Sarah Palin on O'Reilly and other GOP Conservatives saying pretty much the same thing Romney has said this week.

Let's have honest debate or we will lose our credibility as conservatives. We've already been here and done that. We knew where all these candidates stood on this issue and there really was no much of a difference between them on "immigration".

The question about Obama's own citizenship is in the courts. We've allowed this man to stomp on the constitution for more than 3 years now. The real target should be John Boehner and those we put into the House who refuse to take Obama's own eligibility to task.

Thanks to our elected officials in the House the situation is this. We are ALL Americans until proven OTHERWISE. Obama has made it so. There is no longer any way one can be here illegally if they simply burn their documents which prove they were born elsewhere.

The REAL issue is NOT what Obama did but HOW he did it and if we do not deal with the real issue his next executive order just may be proclaiming that guns are illegal to possess unless you are a police officer and maybe after that conservative websites are "hate speech" and should be treated no different than how we treat Al Qaeda.

The real issue is our freedom and his (Obama's) grasp of powers a President never had.

“...are actually on video conceding their own support for some sort of “path to citizenship” for illegals...”


I would be careful not to confuse “path to citizenship” with amnesty. They are very different since with amnesty, there is no path. Also presently, we have a path to citizenship — by OBEYING THE FEDERAL LAWS to become a citizen as many have. Something many politicians do not want to dirty their hands with and just sweep it under the rug. Just not politically expedient for the Washington elites. Just look at how this has been handled by those that have supported amnesty for expediency. And now, we have a president that is advocating the breaking of federal law to pander for the Hispanic vote.

Until the law breakers are removed from power, and respect for our Constitution, our federal immigration laws, and our soverignty are restored, will this issue ever find a reasonable and just solution for all concerned -— especially the TRUE AMERICAN CITIZEN who is the real victim of this insanity and crime.
