I attribute these things to him being an asshole...He is a politician, though and through...

I’m not apologizing, or holding water for the guy, or any of his quislings, it is just a matter of fact that these things you enumerate ARE issues if high importance and are needing to be stopped...But that is a legislative issue, not a judicial one where a criminal act he has committed can be indicted for by the House...Much less be sent to trial in the Senate...

He has TOO MANY people working to protect him, regardless of his and the agenda he is trying to accomplish...So far, he has been very successful in tearing down our previous and credible international diplomatic capability in handling most of the worlds issues...

I can dig how concerned you are about the attacks on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms...You will not find too many people like me who value that above a lot of other things...

Look at it like this...Lets say for the sake of argument the whole bubble bursts and the government somehow makes it to where we can no longer exercise that unalienable right...

Don’t think for one second that YOU, I or anyone else we know that values that Amendment will EVER comply with ANY instruction, regulation, restriction, or confiscation, just because these temporary residents of these seat in our government say we must...

So I am not too worried about that going South on us anytime soon...If it does, it will be a huge mistake on their part, which will be their doom...

Bottom line, I would not expect any impeachment procedings to come out of this legislature...

And I am not too concerned about our 2A rights as well...

Impeachments can be for crimes but can also be for poor behavior that does not constitute an actual crime. “Misdemeanors” in the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” means literally that - incorrect demeanor, AKA behavior unbecoming of a President. Which can be anything Congress chooses it to be.

That said, Fast and Furious alone contains more than enough actual, on-the-books crimes to impeach everyone from Obama all the way down to the field agents. There’s a dead American body to account for - Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry - and thousands of dead Mexicans. Arms trafficking is pretty damn illegal. If you or I did it, we’d be looking at a long long time in the pen. Equal treatment under law demands that Obama and Holder also be held to that same standard. They are not allowed to pick and choose which laws to obey just because of the offices they hold.

Voter fraud was blatant here in California when Dornan lost to Sanchez. GOP did not investigate or protest because they hated the very right wing Bob Dornan... it was personal.

The problem is the 12 Mil... is pretty much definitely more that 30 Mil, and their relatives that will also be allowed to come. The facts on the table are lies.

A very close friend of mine who works for a warehouse store here in California said that they deal with a lot of Middle Eastern men who have stores that sell tobacco and cigarettes. They have multiple wives. They pay up into thousand dollars for the inventory for their store and then the “wife” pays for personal groceries with EBT card. My friend says about one out of every three transactions is EBT and many are these people. We are being ripped off my friend and the RINOS and DEMRATS are all complicit in this. They even have a person who is an employee who owns 15 properties in the area, works for this company and has an EBT card to pay for their food.

By ‘more legal immigration’ I take it that Paul is calling for increased legal immigration, which is idiotic.

For one thing, the vast majority Americans oppose increasing legal immigration, so it shows Paul to be just another elitist when it comes to immigration. Fortunately for him, the media will not inform the public about legislation that would increase legal immigration, like Schumer-Rubio.

For another thing, an increase in legal immigration is likely an increase in future Democrats. Paul is clueless if he thinks small government conservatism appeals to most Hispanics and other immigrant groups.

And finally, if Paul thinks such a position will offer him some protection from the usual baseless charges of racism and of being anti-this or anti-that, then he is an idiot.

It’s unfortunate that Paul has seemingly bought into libertarians’ insane suicidal embrace of mass legal immigration. It’s disappointing because he has me other comments in the past that suggested he might have a clue about immigration. He once suggested that any legalization of illegal aliens be paired with a moratorium or reduction in legal immigration. And after the Boston marathon bombing he was one of the few to question the policies that allowed garbage like the bombers into the country in the first place.

That was apparently false promise.
