No Joy For The GOP – And It May Get Worse

By VDARE:
There’s no joy in the conservative/ Republican MSM/ blogosphere after Super Tuesday. The GOP is obviously profoundly divided, with little enthusiasm and the marked tendency to break along quarrelling tribal lines (Huckabee gets Southerners, Romney gets the Mormon-tinged Intermountain West) that I’ve noted before. American political parties are very hard to kill off, but the vital signs here are unmistakably not great. Thanks a lot, Dubya.

This matters, because even VDARE.COM’s Democrats are deeply pessimistic that their party will embrace patriotic immigration reform.

It’s possible, of course, that the GOP nominee may have learned from his experience in the primaries how powerful the immigration issue is, and exploit it in the general election. McCain is probably too pig-headed, but Huckabee has shown himself remarkably adaptable.

And it’s also true that a McCain-Clinton race is a perfect foil for Ron Paul, if he does make his rumored Third Party run – and is not scared off the immigration issue by the political correctness obviously endemic in the libertarian Establishment.

You have to marvel at the role luck plays in politics. Why didn’t two War On Terror types (McCain and Giuliani) take each other out rather than two Amnesty opponents (Romney and Huckabee)? (Why, for that matter, did Bush and not Reagan have political sons?)

And you have to acknowledge that the MSM’s ability to create celebrity candidates is still a force. But the internet has not yet begun to fight.

I stick with my conclusion yesterday: the big news is that immigration is showing up as an issue in opinion polls. Reluctantly, but increasingly, politicians will have to navigate around it. Probably in the end a new party will arise to deal with it.

Is Hillary the Best Option for Immigration Patriots?

Mickey’s Single Issue Voter’s Guide: Suppose you were a single issue voter, and your single issue was immigration. Specifically, you were opposed to legislation that combines some form of amnesty (legalization of existing illegal immigrants) with tougher border enforcement. If so, you would probably be pretty depressed right now–three of the four leading presidential candidates explicitly favor such “comprehensive” reform. The fourth, Mitt Romney is the least likely to win. And even he’s suspected of being a closet comprehensivist.

But you still have to vote. Before you did, you’d want to ask: Which of the three pro-legalization candidates is least likely to accomplish their legislative goal? When you think about it this way, a clear and somewhat surprising ranking of top three emerges.

____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________

 

 

1) Hillary Clinton would probably be the best president for anti-comprehensivists. She’s cautious. She’s been burned by GOP opposition before (to her 1994 health plan). Is she really going attempt both health care reform and immigration reform in her first two years? Remember, Rahm Emmanuel’s swing-state Democratic congressmen typically ran tough-on-illegals campaigns. They’re squeamish about voting for “amnesty.” If Hillary is president (meaning John McCain isn’t president) the Republicans are likely to unite against a Democratic legalization plan. Meanwhile, Hillary’s political adviser James Carville is on record suggesting that legalization, like welfare, is a potential election-loser. Hillary suppporter Paul Krugman seems one of those remaining economists who actually believe in supply and demand–i.e., that an increase in the supply of immigrant labor can drive down unskilled wages. And Hillary herself has made anti-illegals noises in the past, including reversing her endorsement of Gov. Spitzer’s drivers license plan.

2) Barack Obama, on the other hand, may actually believe his standard-left immigration positons. He’s shown an ability to bridge the partisan divide and get things done. All deeply troubling, in this case.. But at least he too would have a hard time getting both a health care plan and immigration legislation through Congress against opposition from Republicans (McCain having lost).

3) President McCain would seem like a replay of George W. Bush. Bush couldn’t get his “comprehensive” immigration plan through, even with a Democratic Congress. What would be different with McCain? Quite a bit. a) McCain’s likely to be more popular, at least if Iraq continues to improve; b) The Democrats are likely to have bigger Congressional majorities; c) McCain might be able to claim voter validation of his long-standing pro-legalization views. Certainly the Republicans wouldn’t be united against a McCain “comprehensive” bill. Unlike Clinton and Obama, McCain doesn’t have ambitious New Dealish health legislation that would compete for his and Congress’ time and energy.

True, it would still be difficult to pass a McCainish immigration plan–you can imagine the Democrats splitting just like Republicans when faced with something that might actually become law. McCain would have campaigned on his pledge to secure the borders–his current plan for a quickie assurance by “border state” governors might be too transparent a ploy (especially if the press was reporting a continuing flow of illegals). Nevertheless,,McCain seems clearly the worst of the three possibilities, from an anti-comprehensivist perspective.

I’m not saying voters should be single-issue voters. I’m not saying I’m going to vote for Hillary. I’m just saying …

P.S.: OK,, I’m not just just saying. If I thought either Clinton or Obama would do a much better job on health care, that would be one thing. But both seem well-positioned to actually pass some big, broad health plan. An immigration plan, on the other hand, seems much iffier. It could pass or fail depending on who’s president. And, unlike a health care plan, an immigration legalization bill is likely to have large, irreversible consequences. Misconceived health plans can be altered or repealed (remember “catastrophic insurance”?). But if a misconceived immigration amnesty attracts millions of new illegal entrants who then have to be given citizenship–on top of the new citizens created by the amnesty itself–it won’t just lower unskilled wages etc. It will profoundly alter the very electorate that will have to consider any future change of course.

In this context, single-issue voting could be a highly responsible course.

Vote Hillary. She won’t get it done!

Arizona Guv: Mac’s Border Fix Won’t Work

Requiring governors of border states to certify that the flow of illegal immigrants has been halted is central to John McCain’s immigration plan.

The Republican frontrunner says he will not move forward with earned legalization until certification is complete.

Tagged by some conservatives as “the amnesty guy,” McCain has said that enlisting border governors is a necessary step for restoring the public’s confidence that immigration is being brought under control.

Appearing on Bill O’Reilly’s program in August, McCain pointed to the Democratic governor of his home state of Arizona as key to his proposal. “If the governor of my state, who happens to be a Democrat, would be forced she would certify that the border is secure it would be secure,” said McCain. “And that would give credibility.”

“You’d have to have all the border state governors certify it,” he added. “I think that would give credibility to our claim in Washington.”

While border certification has proved to be a useful talking point for McCain, Arizona’s governor has not been consulted by McCain on certification and she said she considers it unworkable.

“The certification issue sounds good,” said Janet Napolitano, the governor of Arizona, in an interview with ABCNews.com, “but it is a snapshot, not a sustained presence, and a snapshot could vary greatly within any given state within any given year.”

By relying on governors to certify that the border is secure, McCain is shirking responsibility, Napolitano said.

“If you make certification the only criteria for whether you then move into overall immigration reform, what I would be leery of is putting up a process by which you never have to take responsibility for overall immigration reform,” she said.

Napolitano has endorsed Democrat Sen. Barack Obama for president.

Asked how certification would work if the governor of Arizona thinks it is nothing more than “a snapshot,” McCain ignored the criticism and instead pointed to the ways in which Texas, where he enjoys the endorsement of Gov. Rick Perry, has gotten involved in beefing up border security.

“Look,” said McCain, in an interview with ABC News’ Ron Claiborne, “if a nation can’t secure its borders then a government can’t carry out its responsibilities to the people, because that’s our first obligation. I believe we can. I obviously believe that once you do that then we have the tamper-proof documents and stuff.”

“People want the borders secured first,” he continued. “We’ve got to do that for them, so that we can satisfy their major concern which is national security.”

Mc Amnesty is so full of himself. It is pretty bad when an open border pro illegal governor doesn’t support his plan and believes it unworkable. This is another instance of where a wink and a nod would certify the border as secure and amnesty would be at the front door.

TOP TEN REASONS THE U.S. SHOULD NOT MARRY MEXICO

This is a bit long ya might want to grab a coffee and a smoke :~

V-DARE
By Brenda Walker

MEXICHURIAN PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH is determined to cement the North American Union as much as possible during his term. Incredibly, he aims at a European Union-type political merger between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, including replacing the dollar with a Euro-style currency called the Amero and rearranging trade patterns to favor Mexico. Central to the deal is the uncontrolled movement of people throughout North America.

This EU mega-state concept has actually been losing support among average folk in Europe. For example, the Dutch and French voted down the EU Constitution in 2005. Doesn’t matter to globalist elites, though. They push forward with expanding bureaucracy slanted toward one-worldish interests in the corporate style.

This is not a joke. The “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” (SPP) is not a nutty conspiracy theory, but is a genuine government policy explained in White House documents and a Commerce Department website. While prettied up in trade language, the intent of the SPP is clearly continent-wide political unification and the dissolution of American national sovereignty. Business elites believe that borders and laws are an annoying impediment to commerce. They have decided the nation-state must go.

With that unhappy possible future in mind, perhaps we should consider the intended spouse in Bush’s shotgun marriage.

You wouldn’t marry your next door neighbor just because of that person’s convenient location. Why then are Washington elites working to dissolve sovereignty in order to unify with a third-world sewer best known for corruption, violence, poverty, sexism and apathy toward education?

The only answer is Mexico’s enormous supply of cheap, exploitable labor, which business wants to fuel the neo-slave economy of its dreams. But the cultures of the peoples of Mexico and the United States are deeply incompatible, and have a history of bad blood going back centuries.

Below, my list of cultural reasons why the United States should avoid further entanglement with Mexico. Please remember that these are societal averages only; there are many admirable Mexican citizens—particularly those living in Mexico. Also, ten should be understood as an arbitrary number. It does not imply that there are only ten reasons to shun a Mexican merger.

#10 The legal age of heterosexual consent in Mexico is 12.

As with many laws, there is some diversity according to locale and other variables, but this discussion of statutes agrees that 12 is the legally acceptable age for straight sex to occur in Mexico.

Mexican men have a reputation for leering and worse at little girls, which shouldn’t surprise us, since sex with children is socially acceptable in Mexico. Fifteen-year-old girls have a ceremony called a Quinceañera which announces their availability to become wives, mothers and girlfriends. In America, children of that age are expected to complete three more years of high school, to be followed hopefully by a college education. But in Mexico, young girls are considered available, according to law and custom.

A 2005 news report from North Carolina found that “Culture might be factor in sexual abuse”, [By Annette Newell, News 14 Carolina, June, 21, 2005] referring to Hispanic men’s propensity to prey upon little girls. The story tip-toed around the obvious fact that foreigners bring their cultures with them, ranging from tasty cuisine to child sex abuse.

An example: Mexican Diego Lopez-Mendez pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a 10-year-old girl in West Virginia, with a not-uncommon excuse that child sex is normal among his people.

“In the pueblo where I grew up girls are usually married by 13 years old….I was unaware of the nature of the offense or that it was a bad crime”, said Lopez through the translator. [Illegal Immigrant Pleads Guilty To Sexual Assault, WTOV9 2/28/06]

In the Netherlands last year, the public was outraged because pedophiles organized themselves into a political party. One of their demands is that the age of consent be lowered from 16 to 12. Perhaps someone should tell them that Mexico already has what pedophiles want.

Or maybe not.

#9 Mexican sexism ranks close to the Taliban.

Islamic men have largely nailed down the reputation as the most misogynous males on the planet. But Mexicans are no slouches in this regard.

Even the diversity propagandist Washington Post has noticed the horrific social status of women south of the border:

“But in the country that made the term “machismo” famous, where women were given the right to vote only in 1953, women’s rights advocates said rape and other violence against women are still not treated as serious crimes.” [In Mexico, an Unpunished Crime, By Mary Jordan, Washington Post, July 30, 2002]

But in the country that made the term “machismo” famous, where women were given the right to vote only in 1953, women’s rights advocates said rape and other violence against women are still not treated as serious crimes. [In Mexico, an Unpunished Crime, By Mary Jordan, Washington Post, July 30, 2002]

In some Mexican states, men may freely kidnap women for sex, a custom known as “rapto,” which is regarded as a harmless amusement by men despite the unsuccessful attempts of women’s groups to criminalize it.

In early 2006, Mexico City decided it should mount a campaign against the rampant sexist behavior of Mexican males, largely because workplace harassment against women is so commonplace. But the supposed message of gender respect was lost in a bizarre public education campaign featuring sex dolls in various positions, er employment venues. One billboard showed a sex doll dressed up as an executive secretary at a desk. Some might think that such images sent the message was that all women, even those professionally employed, are available.

In Juarez, the murders of hundreds of young women over the last decade have been of little importance for the men in charge of law enforcement there. But some Mexican officials have blamed the victims. It should be a national scandal that the crimes remain unsolved after so many years. But it isn’t—which speaks volumes about how little respect Mexican society has for women.

In Mexico, women continue to be second-class citizens whose safety doesn’t count for much. Yet in this country, most American women remain unaware (because they’ve been uninformed—except by Athena Kerry in VDARE.COM) that hard-won legal protections and egalitarian social standing are threatened by the presence of millions of retrosexual Mexican males hardwired with paleolithic attitudes and behavior.

#8 Crime and violence are increasing as the state fails.

Recent news about the spread of drug cartels into new territory, particularly into tourist areas, show that the central government is losing its battle against organized crime, particularly the drug cartels. The outcome of Presidente Calderon’s crackdown remains to be seen. And while many Mexicans are alarmed at the dissolution of order, there are plenty of willing workers who see crime as a job opportunity.

Mexico City has the second highest crime rate in Latin America. Kidnapping in Mexico is second only to Colombia, and even ordinary middle class people get snatched by criminals hoping for a ransom. According to the BBC, “More money is paid in kidnap ransoms here than anywhere else in the world”. Mexico is #6 worldwide for murders per capita.

Nuevo Laredo has been a war zone between cartels battling for control of the NAFTA Highway by which they can easily distribute drugs throughout the continent, despite Fox sending in the army for several weeks in 2005 with no effect. The street fighting, which has at times included bazookas and RPGs, has spread to tourist areas like Acapulco, where two police officers were beheaded by traffickers in April. In February, armed gunmen stormed a Nuevo Laredo newspaper office and exploded a grenade, seriously injuring one reporter.

Average Mexicans are overwhelmed by crime and how it limits their lives. In 2004, a quarter million crowded the central square in Mexico City to protest violent crime, many carrying signs demanding tougher penalties and others with photos of relatives lost. Analyst George Grayson remarked that the issue was a vital one in the Presidential election: Calderon understood it was “imperative that Mexican citizens feel that they are safe in their own streets”. Because they haven’t.

And yet, there is also a strong vein of admiration for crime in Mexican society. Narcocorridos—songs celebrating drug smugglers—are a popular genre and sell a lot of recordings.

#7 Lynching remains a continuing practice.

In the 2001 book Amazon True Tales from Another Mexico, author Sam Quinones mentioned in passing that lynching is not an unusual occurrence in Mexico, and his clippings file on extra-legal executions from 1994 until 2000 was three inches thick. One chapter in the book told the story of two salesmen whose crude behavior in the country village of Huejutla ended with townspeople lynching them in the town square with the belief that the pair were organ-snatching child kidnappers.

In 2004, a Mexico City mob beat up, then burned to death two policemen on live television. Locals had mistaken federal agents for kidnappers and then killed them, with no apparent regret later for their error.

Mexicans simply do not have the same belief as Americans that the law is central to the equitable functioning of a complex nation. It’s the Third World.

#6 Mexican dislike for education lasts for generations.

Unlike many other immigrant groups which have figured out the American path to success, Mexicans have been notably unwilling to use the educational opportunities available to better themselves. Just 9.6 percent of fourth-generation Mexican-Americans have a post-high-school degree, compared with 45.1 percent of Americans as a whole. While 62 percent of Asians get college degrees, Mexicans are known for their high-school dropout culture.

No surprise here. Mexico does not promote education as a national value. Mexican attitudes are stuck in the bad old days, when six years of schooling was considered adequate. Kids are encouraged to get out into the workplace to help support the family rather than finish school—an attitude you don’t see in Confucian culture, for one.

As a result, Mexicans are arguably the worst, i.e. least likely to succeed, immigrant group ever because of their total apathy toward education. Former Congressman Herman Badillo (who wrote the first bilingual education bill) has been assailed by professional ethnic whiners for saying Hispanics need to assimilate to American values of education and speaking English. Sadly for the friends of progress, the largest immigrant group by far is Mexican—about 31 percent.

Unhelpful attitudes work in other ways. Political correctness has prevented an adequate investigation of IQ-lowering lead poisoning among immigrant children in southern California who are fed large quantities of toxic Mexican candy by mothers not big on veggies and whole grains.

Unsurprisingly, Mexico suffers from a corresponding level of superstition that matches up with little education. The standard Catholic religion is supplemented with old-fashioned beliefs like the curse of the evil eye and colorful characters like Jesus Malverde, the patron saint of drug smugglers.

#5 Drunk driving is deemed acceptable, even considered desirably macho.

Driving while inebriated is not condemned by Mexican society. Officials there now insist that more is being done by law enforcement to curtail dangerous drunk driving, but there is no change of public opinion like the one in the US after the effective Mothers Against Drunk Driving campaigns.

Mexicans bring this dangerous aspect of their culture when they come north. The leading cause of death for Hispanics aged 1-34 is vehicle crashes, and states with high rates of fatal hit-and-run accidents correspond with those most affected by illegal immigration.

“The Latino community creates its own problems,” said Joe Ynostroza, technical assistance director for the California Hispanic Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse in Sacramento, a nonprofit educational organization. The problem is especially acute in Mexico.

“Most of this is first- or second-generation Mexican males,” he said. “Alcoholism runs rampant in the Mexican Latino community.”

No other ethnic or racial group has such a high level of DUI arrests statewide, according to the California Department of Justice. [DUI’s culture gap, By Rick Brewer Stockton Record, May 21, 2006]

The ongoing carnage on American highways from Mexican drunk drivers is increasing with an expanding population of foreigners not assimilating to the American way of driving—law-abiding, sober and strapped in.

#4 Animal cruelty is no problema.

Mexicans love their bullfighting, a bloodsport which ends in the matador killing the animal with a sword to the heart, a pre-determined outcome which is not very sporting. Before the matador’s entrance, the mounted picador torments the bull by piercing it repeatedly with a spear, an activity which can end badly for the horse. (Speaking of horses, about 10 percent of Mexican stock are slaughtered for food.)

Mexican rodeo includes steer-tailing, where a rider yanks the animal’s tail in an attempt to flip it to the ground. Steer-tailing was made illegal in Eagle County in Colorado because of the cruelty of the event.

By comparison, American rodeo animals are protected by law and active citizen interest in their welfare.

#3 Mexicans are racist.

“Mexican society is fundamentally racist and classist,” said Guadalupe Loaeza, a newspaper columnist. “The color of your skin is a key that either opens or shuts doors. The lighter your skin, the more doors open to you.” [Mexican Postage Stamp Pushes Racial Envelope, By Chris Kraul & Reed Johnson LA Times June 2005]

The controversy about Mexico’s racist postage stamps revealed the country’s attitude toward darker-skinned peoples as definitely non-egalitarian. Governmental elites are pale persons of European descent, like ex-Presidente Vicente Fox whose background includes Irish and Spanish roots. Reporting about the last Mexican Presidential race noted that candidate Lopez Obrador is dark-skinned, a characteristic counted as an impediment in a country where the political class is overwhelmingly white. New Presidente Felipe Calderon is white.

Aztlan cheerleaders squatting in this country like to make the point that Mexicans are indigenous people. Indeed Mexico has a high percentage of Indian and mestizo peoples compared with other Latin American nations. The World Bank reports that Mexico has 37 languages, each spoken by at least 10,000 people, and that the rate of illiteracy is 63 percent among the indigenous population, versus 42 percent in the non-indigenous.

Mexico’s elite may even have ethnic cleansing in mind, as they push uneducated mestizos and Indians into the US, while the white oligarchs just get richer. (The net worth of Mexico’s billionaires expanded from 4 percent of GDP in 2000 to 6 percent in 2006 according to a World Bank study, with little trickle down.)

Mexicans are also anti-Semitic, according to surveys done by the Anti-Defamation League. The most recent, in 2005, found that 35 percent of Foreign-born Hispanics have “hardcore anti-Semitic beliefs,” compared with 19 percent of US-born, a slight improvement over a similar 2002 poll with results of 44 and 20 percent respectively.

In comparison, extreme anti-Semitic views are held by 14 percent of American-Americans.

#2 Mexican corruption is endemic.

A Washington Post article (“For Many in Mexico, Bribes a Way of Life”) emphasized that bribes were entirely normal, from getting a drivers license to procuring a building permit for a major project. Kids slip the teacher a little cash for a better grade. Residents of Mexico City have to pay a mordida for nearly a quarter of government services received, a study found.

As below, so above. Political corruption is a common item in the news, as politicians stuff money into suitcases and offshore bank accounts. Mexico is “considered one of the most corrupt countries in the hemisphere” with evidence growing that connections between drug cartels and government officials are substantial. Several years of investigation by Transparency International put Mexico solidly into the Third World in terms of corruption.

Part of the reason for the corruption is no tradition of the building blocks of democracy. Mexico has little support for free speech in the press. Mexico is a very dangerous place for journalists doing investigative work about powerful interests, from drug cartels to corrupt government officials. For example, the American publisher of the little Gringo Gazette faced two years in jail for telling the truth about real estate scams that Mexican developers were pulling on American investors. The murder of Chihuahua crime reporter Enrique Perea last August was the 25th killing of a journalist in Mexico since 1995.

#1 Mexicans are Marxicans.

Throughout their history, Mexicans have preferred statist socialism and earlier varieties of big government, rather than individualistic free enterprise.

Politically, Mexico had a history of one-party rule longer than the Soviet Union, symbolically ended with the election of Vicente Fox, a member of the opposition party. Even so, pundits and government officials hint that democracy may not be quite the done deal we’ve been led to believe, saying things like “Mexico has made great strides toward democracy” and “The democracy Mexico has built is fragile.” No kidding.

The Mexican political preference for over 70 years has been far left sombrero Stalinism, a tendency which continues today, as shown by leftist candidate Lopez Obrador coming within a hair of winning the Presidency last summer.

And despite being a very wealthy nation, Mexico is still the Third World where the forces of anarchy are becoming stronger and failing state syndrome is snapping at its heels.

Americans have a totally different cultural background, including a belief that progress is possible. (See Prof Lawrence Harrison’s fascinating analysis of progress-prone vs. progress-averse cultures, also organized as a chart.) As Samuel Huntington remarked, “… if America had been settled not by British Protestants but by French, Spanish, or Portuguese Catholics, it would not be America; it would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.””

Throughout our history, Americans have worked to improve the rule of law and expand gender and racial equality. We value scholarship and scientific inquiry. Our concept of “family values” includes educating young people for many years rather than sending them out into the workplace at age 14 or encouraging teen marriage for girls. A closer integration of the Mexican and America cultures would be completely negative for America and destructive to our tradition of fairness under law.

Mexifornication has been a step backward. The unassimilated millions of Mexicans in this country bring with them their culture’s violence, disinterest in education, historic corruption and gender inequality.

On the basis of culture alone—forgetting about the drug cartels, financial cost to American taxpayers, threats to public health, the danger from political Aztlan and the normalization of treason—the idea is the worst ever to emanate from Washington.

Just say NO to the idiotic scheme of US-Mexico political union—truly a marriage made in hell.

Ron Paul Snubbed, John McCain Endorsed

Posted in 2008, Campaign, Constitution, Democrats, elections, Freedom, GOP, Liberty, Patriotism, Politics, Ron Paul, Sovereignty, U.S. Government, Voters, War on February 2, 2008 by americanchaos

Early in the race for the Republican nomination it was thought for sure Ron Paul would receive this endorsement, instead it has gone to Senator John McCain.
by Gary Wood

In a sudden development John McCain was able to secure yet another endorsement. We all have seen how much Senator McCain enjoys collecting endorsements and using them as trump cards on key issues. This latest card he’s received will allow him to trump many an argument by simply pulling it out and saying, “I’m proud of my record, they’re obviously proud of my record (pointing to the trump card), that’s the way it is and that’s just a little straight-talk.”

Congressman Ron Paul, celebrating his 51st wedding anniversary today, did not seem particularly remorse over losing the endorsement. Despite early odds makers saying he would no doubt get the nod by this group a long campaign showed it was not to be. The longer Dr. Paul stayed on the campaign trail the clearer it became; his message is simply more powerful than initially thought and if he were to win the Republican nomination for President it would be unlikely the group today endorsing John McCain could win.

The group is none other than the Democratic Party. A key turning point for who to endorse came when Governor Mitt Romney pointed out several key pieces of legislature their good friend John McCain helped sponsor. McCain-Feingold Bi-Partisan Campaign Finance Reform Act, Lieberman-McCain Climate Stewardship Act , and McCain-Kennedy Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act all were strong indicators that not only can McCain reach across the aisle, he often is willing to embrace more liberal domestic positions.

According to a statement released, “We have changed positions on who we will endorse for President. Nothing against Dr. Paul but John McCain is ready to become a liberal from day one. We don’t believe that will be necessary as we are confident our nominee will win the White House this year with John McCain leading the Republican ticket, but just in case he wins its nice to know he’ll be ready to join us on all domestic issues. If we would have formally endorsed Ron Paul and if he would have gone on to win the Republican nomination we would have to face tough debates on liberty vs. socialized programs and we simply weren’t prepared for that debate. His message is proving too popular and is awakening a portion of this country that frankly doesn’t need awakening. It’s like the Japanese waking up the United States on that day of infamy. We would like to see Dr. Paul’s message fade as it is not in keeping with the heart of the Democratic Party’s platform. We know exactly what to expect in the debates from John, we’ve studied his short playbook, we anticipate we will allow him to perform as he has recently in the debates. Ron Paul in a two man/woman debate is not a force we care to deal with as it would be nearly impossible to avoid him the entire time. John McCain poses no threat to our base and we respect his strong liberal views. We look forward to competing and defeating him during the general elections this year. After the campaign we hope he will continue to support our domestic agenda.”

Who can blame the Democratic Party for wanting to endorse McCain over Paul? Ron Paul represents liberty and freedom with tough positions on immigration, taxation, monetary policies, and more. About the only thing the Democrats and Ron Paul agree on is ending the war against Iraq yet even the Democrats are not ready to fully embrace non-interventionism. For those reading this far the above represents nothing more than a political opinion, the endorsement is not real and the quotes are fictitious. However, the reality is clear, John McCain poses little threat to a Democratic victory come November while Ron Paul would be difficult to stop once he was allowed to actually articulate his message in the mass media.
