What Debate?

Where do the Democrats stand on immigration? In their Friday debate the subject came up only once:
MODERATOR: Thank you, sir.

Senator Clinton, if you were currently the president, would you defy the majority of American citizens and offer a form of amnesty for illegal aliens?

CLINTON: Well, I'm in favor of comprehensive immigration reform, which includes tightening our border security, sanctioning employers to employ undocumented immigrants, helping our communities deal with the costs that come from illegal immigration, getting the 12 million or so immigrants out of the shadows. That's very important to me.

After 9/11, we've got to know who's in this country. And then giving them a chance to pay a fine, pay back taxes, learn English and stand in line to be eligible for a legal status in this country.

MODERATOR: Time's up. Thank you, ma'am.

And that question was from Chris in Myrtle Point, Oregon.
Why wasn't every candidate asked this question? Is immigration not as important to Democrats as it is to the rest of us? Even if it isn't, is it too much to expect our fearless self-appointed government watchdogs in the media to put the question to them anyway?

Hillary's answer by the way, is yes. She is for defying the majority of American citizens and offering a form of amnesty for illegal aliens. Or as the euphemism goes, she is for "getting them out of the shadows".

Where I live nobody is hiding in the shadows. They've stepped out and waved their Mexican flags, spelled out their reconquista dreams, and dared anyone to do anything about it.

Nothing happened.

Since then, across the nation, the true scope of the invasion has become clear to anyone with eyes. The official numbers are shocking. The truth is far worse.

In southern California the ordinary Americans are outnumbered by immigrants. A routine visit to the supermarket or department store has become surreal. The same old places I've visited for 20 years are suddenly full of short, stocky, oddly-dressed, brown people who don't speak a lick of English. They shuffle aimlessly up and down the aisles with bemused expressions on their faces, their minds clearly blown by the clean bright abundance around them.

The freshly arrived seem especially surprised and comforted at being surrounded by so many others like themselves. "Where are the gringos?" they say with their eyes. There feel no urgent need to learn English or adapt to American norms. Our government, banks, media, churches, and businesses pander to them shamelessly.

We the People are quickly becoming the aliens.

Walking to the checkout I wonder: How long before I have to speak Spanish to function here? When will I have to start carrying pesos? Should I move myself and my family somewhere else before the local government and police are controlled by gangs and our house is completely worthless? Or should we stick it out and pray the Razanistas will beat, rape, kidnap and kill all the other guero pigs first?

Friday's debate was virtually worthless. We now know that all the Democrat candidates oppose Bush and "his" war in Iraq. Is this news to anyone? Are any of the candidates aware that our own country is being invaded? Do any of them oppose that?

Maybe someone should ask them. Someday.

Presidential debate on Immigration? Esta loco?

Even the republicans talk big by focusing on the security angle and ignoring the deporting angle.

They are here to stay. Based upon the news Ive seen for your town, methinks you should be evacuating before the children hit high school.

The only candidate right on immigration is Tancredo. It's a national disgrace. Moral equivalence has so sapped our psyche we lack the will to even defend ourselves.

Our schools are worse than our stores. Our children are paying a price for immigration. By high school the Latino immigrant kids are so happy to be here they form gangs and declare open season on Anglo.

After all, he exterminated the Native Americans, didn't he? (so their twisted rationale goes)

Yes of course, the displacement and genocide of Native Americans were crimes so horrible that, well, the only fitting punishment is...more displacement and genocide!

It doesn't matter if you or your great-great-grandparents weren't there. It's time Pilgrims (ie. anyone from anywhere but Latin America) got their just desserts.

The New Conquistador logic has holes so huge Cortez could march an army through them.

Well its not like were giving up our lands to the European-Mexicans. Look around... they're all five feet tall - thats rich Aztec blood. Were just returning it back to the Indians we took it from.

That's the point. How is an invasion of Aztecs any better than an invasion of Europeans?

"Returning it" presupposes the Indians and Aztecs are one and the same. They aren't. Just as the "Pilgrims" here today aren't Europeans.

That implies the new conquistadors HAVE logic -- which is more a Euro thing than a SAmer. indian thing, no senor?

Is it logic and thought or emotion and greed? Anyone wanna vote?

(Oh I guess those illegals do... or so Hillary and her ilk are betting...)
