Here we are on the eve of a Day Without Illegal Aliens. Despite what these misled Mexicans may think, no one wants to discriminate against them because they’re immigrants. What part of “illegal” don’t they understand?
Both parties’ complete failure to deal with this situation is going to make a lot of Americans really mad. I’m one of them. Our congress critters see these 11-12 million illegals as a future voting block and want to put ’em on the fast track to citizenship. Immigrants who have gone the legal route and the will of the people be damned.
My predition, for whatever it’s worth, is that the GOP will lose its majority in one or both houses. If the Dims take over the Senate, Bush won’t be able to appoint any more Supreme Court justices. If the take the House, Bush will be impeached. Who will the GOPers have to blame for this? Themselves, because they sold out the conservatives who put them in office.
And don’t get me started on Frist’s idea of giving $100 to each citizen to offset high gas prices. How stupid do these people want us to be? What a buch of miserable, abject failures. I rather suspect that the Day Without Illegal Aliens will cause a backlash among the otherwise silent masses. But I still don’t expect our elected overseers to do anything other than be the wusses they are.
This may bring a viable third-party candidate to the frontlines for 2008, though. He or she will drain votes away from the Republican candidate, just like Perot did for Bush I. And when Hillary gets into office, the limp-wristed GOPers in DC won’t have to look any further than the mirror to see who to blame.
