Why I never vote based on party affiliation

From the cybercast news service:

“House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) issued a joint statement on Tuesday making it clear that it was Democrats who insisted on making unlawful presence in the United States a felony rather than a misdemeanor.

"In December, the House of Representatives passed a strong border security bill aimed at securing our borders and preventing illegal immigration," the statement said.

"However, on
December 16, 2005, there were 191 House Democrats who voted to oppose House Republican efforts to reduce the crime of unlawful presence in the United States from a felony to a misdemeanor. Instead, they voted to make felons out of all of those who remain in our country illegally. (Some conservative Republicans also favored making unlawful presence a felony.)”

Well, it seems that the most out-of-touch party actually did something We the People wanted. I’m (almost) sure they did it by mistake, and will probably try to backpedal out of their responsibility in the matter, but I’m glad they had the cajones to do it.

Step 1. Make entry and/or staying here illegal

Step 2. Round up the illegals

Step 3. Build the wall (see ‘porous borders’)

Now, the Mexgov will definitely bitch about this, so kill NAFTA, Meheeco’s most favored nation trade status, stop all car imports at the border, and see who cries uncle first.

Finally, start asking your representatives why they didn’t vote to enforce National Sovereignty, to truly secure our borders, and to do something about the illegal immigration problem. If you don’t like their answers, remind them that November is coming. Or, simply ask them “If you’re voting against securing our borders, what are you voting for?”

Tar. Politician. Feathers. some assembly required.
