I’m telling you, I’m on the verge of not voting for President in November and just sticking with putting my energy into the NC Governor’s Race.Â
Just when I’m starting to think that McCain is the better of two evils, he says something that completely disgusts me and, more importantly, concerns me about his willingness to sacrifice the fundamental principles of the United States of America.
QUESTIONER: Senator, you have been a leader on immigration reform in the Senate but unfortunately Congress has failed to make progress on this very critical issue. As the next President of the Unites States of America will comprehensive immigration reform, and not just enforcement, be one of your top policy priorities in you’re first 100 days in office?
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN: It will be my top priority yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
The first part is bad enough.Â Â But it gets worse….
And my friends, thank you for the question, and let me just review for you again, we tried. I reached across the aisle to Senator Ted Kennedy, and by the way I know that he’s in your prayers, and we worked in bipartisan fashion. And we were defeated. And by the way, it wasn’t very popular, let’s have some straight talk, with some in my party, and so I did that and worked together so we could carry out a federal responsibility.
We have to secure our borders, that’s the message. But we also must proceed with a temporary worker program that is verifiable and truly temporary, we must also understand that there are 12 million people who are here and they are here illegally and they are God’s children, they are God’s children and they will be treated in a humane fashion based on the principle obviously that someone who comes here legally cannot have priority over someone who comes here illegally.
Although Byron York reports that “The McCain campaign says that in the answer above, McCain fumbled the words “legally” and “illegally” when he said that “someone who comes here legally cannot have priority over someone who comes here illegally,” and they want to assure readers he was not setting some bold new policy“…. it doesn’t much matter.
What McCain doesn’t seem to realize is that “God’s Children” do not have an “automatic divineÂ right” to American citizenship.Â Especially if they break the laws of this country in the process of getting here.Â What the hell is wrong with him?
Since McCain thinks that anyone who enters the country illegally has automatic dibs on US citizenship, and since the Supreme Court believes that Constitutional legal protection shouldÂ extend toÂ non-US, foreign enemy combantants, then I say — let’s just go for the full monty.
No more immigration laws, dismantle the border crossings, no customs checks at airport.Â Â Just open it all up and let chaos reign.
Oh and by the way, I’ll stop paying my US taxes immediately… become a citizen of Canada…. and then re-enter the USA illegally (along withÂ some Al-QaedaÂ sleepers, I’m sure)Â to get all of the benefits of the US Constitution that I have now — but this time for free!!
