    It should come as no surprise that their former base is increasingly abandoning the Republicans, as the Republicans certainly abandoned their conservative base by becoming weenie, watered down liberals.

    Nobody except illegals and Democrat politicians want amnesty. The working lower and middle classes are struggling enough under Barry’s horrible economy. We don’t need 12 million more unskilled, poor laborers taking even more jobs and pushing American wages even lower.
    Cantor should’ve known this before becoming a pseudo-Democrat!

    The thing is that the liberals/progressives/Democrats have been saying that Mr. Brat is running against immigration. True – but as is their tactic, the choose to drop the word “ILLEGAL” in front of immigration.

    From what I have read, Mr. Cantor had been moving away from what his constituents want.

    Sadly, in our political system the races are for national points, when the Representatives and Congressmen are supposed to support their constituents. Not what the party wants. Not what the people in another district/state want, but what their constituents want. Mr. Cantor FAILED to do this. He failed to represent his district in a manner that the majority of primary voters wanted him to, so they said goodbye.

    This is how an election is supposed to work.

    And the liberals/progressives/Democrats are joyous about it. An upstart candidate defeated an established incumbent with major political, corporate, and special interest backing. Just what they always say should happen.

    Always amusing to watch the right wing fight itself.

    If you haven’t noticed, you already have 12 million immigrants. It is unlikely there will be mass deportations anytime soon. The republicans hire most of the cheap labor on farms and other low paying jobs. All the lack of an immigration bill does is keep wages down,

    Ted…..Ted…..Ted……by the looks of your photo, you should be old enough to remember when we were a nation of law. What drives wages down is the over abundance of low skilled, uneducated workers. Stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants and all of that will level out. Our welfare costs will go down as will crime.

    Oh…I almost forgot yo mention, Ted, we already have immigration laws. We now need a president who will enforce the laws.

    Most of the founders of the USA were immigrants. A few were the children of immigrants. Before the USA was officially founded, the first European invaders spoke Spanish and settled in the southwest and in what is now Florida. Later the English speaking founders invaded westward and took by force of arms what is now Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California from the new nation of Mexico. They also invaded south and took Florida from España. And of course they slaughtered the first nations people while doing all the looting and pillaging.

    The conservative argument against amnesty is more about votes than jobs and wages.

    @Gypsy8

    And so is the liberal argument for amnesty.

    “The conservative argument against amnesty is more about votes than jobs and wages.”

    And the liberal argument is the same perhaps?

    Tax Man…. Tax Man……. bu the looks of your photo…

    What happens in your scenario is that jobs just get sent overseas, where even skilled labor is payed much less.

    “What drives wages down is the over abundance of low skilled, uneducated workers. Stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants and all of that will level out. Our welfare costs will go down as will crime.”

    Is that ‘trickle down’ immigration?

    Hmmm, does the STATE of Virginia have any laws prohibiting the hiring of illegals? How about the STATE of Arizona? Alabama? Texas?
    -
    Do you really want the Federal Gummint sweeping in to enforce state laws?
    -
    BTW, Colorado did that several years ago (before Obama) and they did not like the result and called it off.

    Exactly. Obama needs to pick up a rifle and stand on the border himself. He needs to show the police and border guards how to do it, because, apparently, they don’t know how.
