Republicans Signal the End to Border Security
Who an organization chooses as its leader says volumes about that group's goals and the philosophy behind them. After the electoral spanking received by the Republican Party one could assume the choice of chairman of the Republican National Committee has been carefully considered. In light of this I am disturbed by the choice of Sen. Mel Martinez. By elevating him to the chairmanship the Party is demonstrating its preference for amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Now there are some who say it was because of the immigration issue that Republicans lost. I happen to believe that is true except not for the reason that the pundits claim. It was not that Republicans were in favor of controlling illegal immigration that people did not support their reelection. If that were so the Republican congress and President would have to have done something about it. It was because all we received from them was lip service that the issue was held against them. To consolidate the loss of support the Party has placed a pro illegal immigrant amnesty Senator in charge of the Party.
I was once an active member of the Republican Party. Not just a card carrying voter, but directly involved in campaigns. I Left because it became nearly impossible to find a candidate that actually believed in something much less was conservative. I see that things have changed somewhat. They are putting up people who believe nonsense such as Sen. Martinez.
We have a choice between two parties, one is a bunch of leftist kooks, the other weak kneed liberals pretending to be conservative. Where are the true libertarians? Not the goofy anarchists that are called the Libertarian Party, but people who believe that freedom and liberty include the responsibility that comes from personal choice. That properly tempered by simple laws individuals will use such liberty to create a dynamic society, but picking the people's pockets to give their wealth to others who did not earn it is theft plain and simple.
I could go on but you probably get my drift. The existing parties are running us into self-destruct mode.
