SunsetLament: Lord_Baull: Can't conservatives just follow Reagan's example? What would be wrong with that?His example? Or his advice?Because Reagan said signing the Amnesty was one of the biggest regrets of his Presidency; specifically, that he trusted the Democrats that they would follow through on their promise to enforce the border so it would never happen again.Reagan was a terrific president, but he did make mistakes. When he acknowledged them as regretful, it'd be foolish to make the same mistakes over again. Boehner (Ryan, McCarthy, McConnell, Cornyn) are idiots.

Wendy's Chili: Obama's Reptiloid Master: Wendy's Chili: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Wait... the GOP has a plan?It's called "disenfranchise the messicans and it won't matter who we alienate."Basically.Michael Lind nailed it when he said the right wants "voters who don't work and workers who don't vote."A work force made up of non-citizen permanent residents is up there with Social Security privatization on the evil rich guy wish list.
