A Few Points From A Former Bush Supporter

First on the list, effing tired of being taken for granted. Forget your friends and you deserve your enemies.

Second, if there is any similarity between Vietnam and Iraq, it's that the administration waging the war no longer knows what the fuck it's doing or how to define the effort. Apparently Iraqi democracy is more important than the American version.

Squandering political capital through indifference to your base and to the persuadable opposition disqualifies you from public office.

All of the shortcomings above come together in the pandering to the criminal class we call illegal immigrants.

Makes friends with them.

Have no realistic plan for preventing a further degradation of the problem.

Behave like the French Court in doing it.

As the world slips closer and closer to firestorm ignited by Iran, these idiots can't even find the backbone to protect our own borders.

All I know now is that the future looks very grim. We have no government worthy of the term, we have enemies everywhere and rats gnawing at the fabric of American society. What's even worse than the practical matters is that the shear weight of pride in country and citizenship can be a force magnifier. Even that, now, is in doubt.

The Bush Administration isn't even up to level of Jacque Chirac's. Whatever else you say about Chirac, at least he still makes a big deal about being a Frenchman. For that matter, maybe the same can be said of George Bush.

Thank you Rhod.

Tom thank you for commenting and I will move your comment here but also leave a copy of it with the Charlie Daniels post.

I also lost most of my faith in Bush, and the Republicans in general. Sometimes I get so pessimistic all I can say is I am glad that I have no kids and I am glad I lived in the 50's and 60's, the apex of American culture and success and the reality of the American Dream.

I keep looking for a bright light for the future, another Ronald Reagan who brightened us for a while after the "malaise" and liberal anti-American crapola of Jimmah Carter. The only list I can look at is whatever Conservative is disliked by entrenched Republicans, as Reagan was so dispised by "professional" pseudo Repubs.

'06 is too near for a real Conservative leader to step forward, have to wait for '08. Hope is dimming. Maybe someone has an idea of the person I hope for. If the illegal immigrant problem is not faced head-on in the next few months, all may be lost.

I lived in Malibu, California for 29 years and saw it change and not for the better. It changed from shopping malls in the San Fernando Valley of Americans…… of all walks of life, various ethnic backgrounds to almost exclusively Mexican. Which of course forced others to move further out away from the L.A. area toward Westlake Village and further north.

Malibu became infested with illegals coming across the canyons for work. But you know what they brought with them? Crime, drugs, and danger for those of us that lived in Malibu. They would stand around the shops, drinking both non-alcohol and alcoholic beverages all day long unless they had work. Men with jackets opening them up to show us they had knives sewn into the inside of the jacket and easily obtainable. This was in Malibu not some dump along the border.

There was and is an arrogance about them, a peacock waiting to explode if you so much as question them. Back then we voted for Proposition 187, it was a dramatic effort to drive out undocumented aliens and to deter their entry by cutting them off from medical and other public services and depriving their children of an education. It WON! We WON! Our voice was heard!!!
But………….it was attacked as unconstitutional in several lawsuits, and its operation shackled by restraining orders. Back in 1998, Dec. 14, U.S. District Court Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer of the Central District of California issued an oral decision to enjoin the major provisions of Proposition 187.

Soooooooo, what I don't get is we are not closing our borders, we are not saying NO more of this, nothing changes except we give in even more to the illegals while they are still pouring in to the U.S.A.

Our government has time is spent making sure they have their stupid rally on Monday and take the day off then to take drastic actions to stop their entries across the borders.

A fedw years ago I didn't know what RHINO meant, I had to ask Linda. ONce I found out it explained everything to me. It answered why we have politicians that say they are conservative, say they love America but do nothing to keep it the America we know and love. Their lives give the middle finger to " we the people" and land of the free and home of the brave.

America is wounded and we must not let her die, I know I won't and none of you will either. You are warriors of the best there is.

Vilmar at RightWing Howler has a great analogy he posted recently in a letter he sent to one of his Senators.

“when it comes to voting for either party right now I will still get screwed. The only difference is the “size” of the “tool” doing the screwing”.

I’m a contributing card carrying member of the Republican Party. This past week I wrote the RNC and told them I’m fed up with panty waste Republican Senators with no backbone. I don’t expect an answer to my letter but I will get letters asking for more contributions. I won’t contribute another penny to them until they get some leadership with kahonas.

It thinks maybe it’s time for a Conservative Party in American. The Republicans used to be it but, unfortunately, not any more since the RINO's took over.

I thought I was the only one that felt this way. I spent 24 years buying my dream farm, risking life and limb to pay for it as a retirement home, the last 4 years of ownership was like having a knife through the jugular. Farm crops were devastated by NAFTA, not that it mattered, most of Mexico had moved into the Valley anyway. Taxes went off scale and so did irrigation costs along with wastewater and other enviromental constraints. The welfare rolls have risen exponentially, under the guise of SSI which is State controlled, hence the high taxation. I sold it to a Mexican through a Department of Agriculture loan tailored to them at a huge loss. less than I had in the place and left the area permantently. In 1985-86 the Mexicans were lined up for several city blocks to register for Social Security when they were granted the last amnesty. That's when farming there went into the toilet, NAFTA only put the lid down.
Then we get the illusion of a conservative government and the false hope it brought, I'm terribly disillusioned with the likes of McCain, Specter even Bush. I can't vote for a Democrat, all I can do is a write in for a nobody in protest and let these pork barrel bandits fall on their asses.
We sure as hell can't protect this nation if we can't even prevent foreigners from coming here illegally and demanding that we turn over our country to them and the politicians elected to protect us side with them. This just might be why we have the Second Amendment to the Constitution as a safeguard against anarchy.

Tom your right and we have to speak out now. I too hope someone will step up to the plate for America especially for '08'. No more RHINO's!

Bob if we could just get rid of the RHINO's and clean house big time. It is hard because to get a true conservative to run is very difficult, which was a hard thing for me to understand for a long time. Thanks for the Vilmar quote too.

"We sure as hell can't protect this nation if we can't even prevent foreigners from coming here illegally and demanding that we turn over our country to them and the politicians elected to protect us side with them.".......I agree with you!
