Maybe the greedy businessmen now running the Republican Party should talk with their Hispanic maids sometime. Ask Juanita if shed like to have seven new immigrants competing with her for the opportunity to clean other peoples houses, so that her wages can be dropped from $20 an hour to $10 an hour.This is the difference between Democrats and Republicans over the last decade or so.
A wise Latina, A.J. Delgado, recently explained on Mediaite.com why amnesty wont win Republicans the Hispanic vote even if they get credit for it. Her very first argument was: Latinos will resent the added competition for jobs.
But rich businessmen dont care. Big Republican donors and their campaign consultants just want to make money. They dont care about Hispanics, and they certainly dont care what happens to the country. If the country is hurt, I dont care, as long as I am doing better!
This is the very definition of treason.
Dems are motivated by their liberal dogma and quest for long term supremacy; Republicans are in it for personal enrichment.
Democrats love the money that flows in from lobbyists but they always manipulate the resulting donor expectations in ways to ultimately serve the liberal agenda. Contrast that with the GOP-e, who slavishly obey the whims of their big money contributors and consultants.
That's why the Democrats prevail most of the time.
I’m speaking generally, of course.
There are exceptions to this in both parties. But the pool of these exceptions is shrinking.
Hopefully, the Tea Party movement can bring about change.
