Hannity is a GOPe bootlicker and has been for ages.
I never liked Hannity, I gave it all kinds of chances.
One can’t honestly swear your great grandfather’s required oath upon a Koran. I wonder when we dropped it.
YOU support them!!!
If you don’t understand r/K selection, and how it molded our ideologies, you don’t understand politics. We are group-competitive. That Conservatives want to compete as a group against outgroups.
The Socialist, r-selected, bunnyman position is the whole aversion to group-competition which is the We are the world argument.
Either you see America as an entity, and stand beside your fellow Americans in the group competition of global economics, or you side with our enemies and out-groups, in which case you should openly accept you have no in-group, and most assuredly are not part of ours. We want our group healthy and successful.
Back in the day, when you had to produce in this country, or starve, we could have open doors, because only the strong and productive would come here. With today’s cradle to grave welfare state, we will be a magnet for the leeches, and that can no longer be, or we will cease to be a great power.
Either you want America strong and powerful, for Americans, or you might as well be a traitor or enemy to every American in this nation. Today, that means booting the illegals and law breakers, and definitely not giving them the power to elect our leaders.
Unless you want Democrats in power.
Join the in-group.
There was no welfare state in the 1920s either. People came here to become Americans, to enter the land of opportunity, not to get a free lunch, free school, free health care, and free housing. Illegal immigration is no longer about becoming American, it's about freeloading off the already overburdened taxpayer-slaves in this country.
Right but up to the 1920’s immigration was basically free, other than basic security concerns which of course are valid. It seems to me that the whole welcoming spirit of America among so-called conservatives has changed.
You realize that you've got that completely backwards. The fact that we have to pay for them itself is the result of socialism. The fact that we don't want to pay for them is based on the principle of the same type of rugged individualism that created what was once the greatest nation on earth.
It's bad enough that the productive among us has to carry the deadwood that makes up the base of the DemocRAT party - we don't need to be importing more welfare-sucking deadbeats.
Muzzled? I thought this was an article about Rush wanting to discuss the immigration issue and Fox sidestepping it? Rush has been on top of this since day one and hyper critical of the GOP for supporting it.
I don't know where you're getting your information from but you're way off base when it comes to Rush.......Maybe you ought to start listening to him instead of shooting from the hip.
Well, until the 1920's, America freely welcomed basically everybody with security also being valid and important concerns. But America was made for the benefit of the individual and the individual was always the core value over the collection of individuals. Now it's the other way around - the collectivist state where the individual is there for the benefit of the U.S. This is not what America was founded on.
Only the difference between a 100 million population and a 300 million population in a chronically unemployed era in which those with jobs are paying for those without, to include immigrants legal and illegal
Get rid of the socialist payments and you have the 20’s again.
But the socialist payments are a large part of the draw.
The were no immigration quotas until the 1920's. America was always about the benefit of individual freedom and the understanding that individual freedom is the cornerstone to a healthy and happy society. On that basis, there was a welcoming spirit generally although there has always been those who out of fear or prejudice didn't like the next wave of immigrants. But we ARE a nation of immigrants and we became a good and strong nation built on the freedom of immigrants to live and build their lives as they saw fit.
If what I have said is not true, then explain what isn’t true. If what I have said is true, why do you respond with such venom?
Plenty of people have shown you your lie. We can’t help you pull your head out of your ass if you don’t want to.
If what I’ve said is false, then explain what’s false. If what I’ve said is true, then what’s going on here is a lot of wasted effort that should be spent focusing on taking down the socialist state.
Hmmm, is Rush cutting his (considerable) GOPe ties? I hope so, Kudos to Rush for outing Fox on immigration. Nicely done Rush. Laura sitting in for Billy must not have gotten the memo. Kudos for her too.
I think conservatives, however, should be focused on bringing down the authoritarian socialist state, not arguing based on acquiescing to it.
I googled “One America News” and I am excited about them, I love the Washington Times and if OAN is carried by Direct TV I will drop Fox and give them a try.
You’d be a good Leftist working with the MSM - they don’t argue based on ideas - they just personally attack the non-Leftists.
No, you said what a French man wrote. I was not an American.
Take your little Alinsky style attacks and shove them up your liberal ass.
Yes, but America adopted that spirit by-and-large until the 20th century when America became socialist.
Good one. BTW, what lie are you referring to?
The guy is a liberal moron in need of a hearty zot.
No you are trying to pass off a symbolic statement for a realistic one. You don’t seem to know the difference.
Access to cheap house servants trumps all.
I don’t think so. We’re a nation of immigrants. That’s what America is here for.
I’m not entirely sure you understand the concept of socialism, which is relatively unrelated to immigration policy, unless you have the “we are the world” boob mentality.
Negative. America is here to be the home of individual liberty, freedom, free markets and free minds.
To import people by the millions who believe otherwise is national suicide.
Aww c’mon man. Border erasure is the American way.
Thanks, I have grown so tired of him.
I will erase Border Erasers.
Dude seems oblivious to the real deal we are experiencing now. I can understand the fatigue, but I am ready to reduce him to tears.
I think immigrants are more of a plus than a minus.
Then you must favor socialism, gun bans, massive entitlements, and various other 'Progessive ideas', because the current crop of Amnesty candidates are hugely in favor of that.
Which, of course, shows us all what you truly favor -- your protestations to the contrary nonwithstanding.
My ancestors came here LEGALLY! How about yours?
They know that the government at Washington has been liberated from the constraints placed by the Constitution, that said government knows how to wield power, and that that government will reward followers and punish opponents.
No, the typical argument is WE have to pay for these people. That’s an argument based on socialism (people seen as a liability becasue they are a siphon for government “entitlements” instead seen as another human being of intrinsic worth and value looking for the opportunity and freedom to build his life). Instead, we should focus on taking down the socialist state.
Plus, as long as I’m tearing you one, you do realize the poet who wrote “give me your tired...” was an avowed Zionist. I’m guessing she wasn’t a big fan of Arabs immigrating into the new Jewish state she helped form, and then voting on who would lead the Israelis.
Then again, she was loyal to her people.
I guess FOX needs more Mexicans to run the studio cameras?
Wow, you don’t think much of the power and influence of liberty. Given the choice, as Reagan used to talk about, people will choose freedom over slavery to government.
If I favored massive entitlements, would I favor immigration? Of course not! Socialism is an argument against immigration, the argument I hear most often around here. The effort should instead be on taking down this socialist government monster to it constitutional size and limits.
I don’t know, you’ll have to ask them...a couple of hundred years ago...
Well, we’ve always thought of ourselves as a melting pot of all kinds of people from all corners of the globe - people who gladly got busy building their own lives becasue they were free to do so. That’s the America I believe in.
“Let Lincolns party cease to exist as practical political entity.”
The level of ignorance now is such that millions of Americans think the name of Lincoln’s party starts with a big D. Most of those think that the party of George Wallace and white racism starts with a big R. Ignorance is thriving in all states like Kudzu in South Carolina.
