Re: James Fulford’s Rand's Flip-Flop In WND

From: An Anonymous Reader [Email him]

I'll see your Rand Paul and raise you one Jeff Flake. Taken from Flake's campaign website last year

"One of the primary functions of the federal government is to provide national security, which includes border security. With a southern border so porous, and increasingly dangerous, the federal government continues to fail in this most basic function.

 In the past I have supported a broad approach to immigration reform—increased border security coupled with a temporary worker program. I no longer do. I’ve been down that road, and it is a dead end. The political realities in Washington are such that a comprehensive solution is not possible, or even desirable given the current leadership. Border security must be addressed before other reforms are tackled.”

It is obvious to this citizen that these politicians are well aware of their constituents’ opposition on amnesty. There is a confirmed pattern of showing strong support of enforcement and border security during their election campaigns, then reneging or "flip-flopping" once elected. 

For example,  McCain’s "build the dang fence" and Rubio’s scathing indictment of opponent Crist:

 "I think that plan is wrong, and the reason I think it’s wrong is that if you grant amnesty, as the governor proposes that we do, in any form, whether it’s back of the line or so forth, you will destroy any chance we will ever have of having a legal immigration system that works here in America"

With Congress’s approval rating hovering near 10%, most incumbents actually won their re-elections last year.

Perhaps, that is the calculation driving these double-talking traitors. Like the many signs displayed at an Open Borders rally "NO BORDERS. NO FEAR", these segregated elitists seem to have no fear of their peon constituency.

I can hear the whispering of their consultants now: “They'll forget come November. They always do. In the meantime, look at all that ca$h. “

Peter Brimelow comments: This is the kind of thing that looks clever to political hacks, but it ultimately ends in disaster. Parties can be replaced—I've seen it before, in Canada.
