As you have heard by now, Amnesty-loving Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) has been shellacked by his challenger, a conservative economics professor who made Cantor’s support for Amnesty his key issue.
The Establishment GOP can’t understand why the base does not share their enthusiasm for importing millions of units of cheap foreign labor to replace American workers. If you asked a typical member of the GOP aristocracy why the base is so opposed to Amnesty, they would give you the same answer a Democrat would, “racism.”
They cannot understand why the peasant class… that rabble!… won’t trust them to finally… in exchange for Amnesty… finally control the border after 28 years of promising to control the border, but never coming anywhere near controlling the border.
Because I think the peasant class has caught on that what the GOP, the Democrats, and the US Chamber of Commerce really want is for the Border Patrol to hand out American citizenship and directions to the nearest sweat shop to anyone who can run, jump, swim or take a boat into the country. And their feints at “Border Security” are just empty promises to do what they’ve always promised to do but never done in the past.
Oh, also, the Establishment GOP has decided if they can’t have Thad Cochran in Mississippi, they would rather lose the seat (and blame the Tea Party) (The Cucinelli Strategem).
Yeah, they are all about having a “Big Tent,” so long as they can run the circus.
