Rush Limbaugh: Immigration Bill Will Kill GOP

During Friday's syndicated broadcast of the Rush Limbaugh program, Rush criticized the Senate's immigration proposal as liberalism gone wild.

"Liberals are trying to tear this country down institution by institution and rebuild it in their own image, and this is one of the steps that they are trying to make it happen," he said.

Rush warned that if this bill comes out of the Senate in its present form - and it's highly doubtful that it will - the liberals in the House will not vote for it. He said the politicians realize that there are Democrats in California, Arizona, Texas and Virginia where illegal immigration is a red hot issue and a vote for this bill would be political suicide.

As for Republicans, they have already lost California, Rush reminded his listeners. If they lose Virginia and lose Florida, it's all over for the GOP as far as elections go. And being blamed for this immigration bill could cost them both states.

Rush explained that this is why Senate Democrats want Republicans to receive "credit" for passing this bill.

"It's a piece of legislation that hardly anybody has ever seen," he said, yet already "there are walls of opposition that are being built on all sides of this."

The bill, he warned, will create "a brand new, giant welfare state paid by the rest of us," yet illegal immigrants are telling the media: "'I don't like this. I don't like having to go home. I don't want to pay these fines.'"

They needn't worry, Rush said. The illegals will not be forced to go home at all. They are not going to pay any fines. It's not going to happen because there is no political will to do so.

"Once this bill passes they'll be talking about how if you have to go home it will split up families and they'll say the fines would be taking food out of the mouths of poor children by making the parents pay these ridiculous fines," Rush told his audience.

Speaking of why any Republicans are supporting the bill, Rush explained: "You could legalize rape in this country if you simply called it the Civil Rights Act of 2007 because nobody on Capitol Hill has the guts to vote against anything that claims to be broadening or creating civil rights. It's a code word."

You watch. These sneaky cowards will try to 'smoky backroom' this bill in the middle of the night. Friday night is best, because Rush is off for the weekend.

Everything Rush said today was true and to the point. American culture is doomed. We will be a fractured multi culture nation divided against each other.

Bush is paying back the people who gave him $220 million in ten days when he first announced he would run for president in 1999. Most of these politicians supporting amnesty come from privilege and have never made much sacrifice for America. I don't understand their reasons unless it is the pursuit of socialism and New World Order.

This amnesty nonsense has me so livid, it is difficult to maitain self-control.

Our blue state Catholic churches are now safe houses for these ILLEGAL ALIEN LAWBREAKERS!
The 31 Red States of America will soon be 30 red states and then 25... Estados Unidos and Vive Los Democratos Partyoyoyos! Virginia is now a blue state and Tennessee is targeted next (Nashville of all places). The GOP is now GOPhers - Roadkill. Thank God South Carolina is our second home.

PS: In 2000, Bush won 30 red states to the Soreloserman's 20 blue states (Gore lost his home state of Tenn. and Clinton's Arkansas).
In 2004 'W' won 31 red states to Kerry's 19 blue states. With 12 million to 20 million illegal Mexicans voting for the DNC, Rush is 'correcto mundo'! Only 1/3 of the Latino votes go to the RNC. The GOP is doomed and Gonners! Adios Estados Unidos and VIVE DNC...Si?

Tom, I know just how you feel. One thing is you are not alone in how you feel. We are all in this together and that for me helps a little just to know that.
It was hard to post about it because I was so angry I could hardly type.

Darth ,it is heartbreaking. I just sit here and think maybe it is a bad dream, but I know it's not. Well no it is a bad dream but wide awake nightmare is more like it.
