Illegal Alien Amnesty Would Have Given Obama a Landslide Victory


Here’s a great plan for the future of the Republican Party. How about we hand over Florida, Colorado and Nevada to the Democratic Party without ever dreaming of competing in them again. And let’s turn Texas and Arizona into the new swing states.

It’s easy, it’s fun and it will make it impossible for Republicans to win the White House ever again after 2022. It’s the amazing plan being peddled by Senator Graham and Senator Rubio, among other geniuses. It’s a plan to lose every election ever as the only hope for saving the Republican Party.

Some people would call that a bad plan, but who listens to Conservative Republicans anyway?

The immigration proposal pending in Congress would transform the nation’s political landscape for a generation or more — pumping as many as 11 million new Hispanic voters into the electorate a decade from now in ways that, if current trends hold, would produce an electoral bonanza for Democrats and cripple Republican prospects in many states they now win easily.

Full voting rights — for a group of undocumented residents that roughly equals the population of Ohio, the nation’s seventh-largest state.

If these people had been on the voting rolls in 2012 and voted along the same lines as other Hispanic voters did last fall, President Barack Obama’s relatively narrow victory last fall would have been considerably wider, a POLITICO analysis showed.

Key swing states that Obama fought tooth and nail to win — like Florida, Colorado and Nevada — would have been comfortably in his column. And the president would have come very close to winning Arizona.

Republican Mitt Romney, by contrast, would have lost the national popular vote by 7 percentage points, 53 percent to 46 percent, instead of the 4-point margin he lost by in 2012, and would have struggled even to stay competitive in GOP strongholds like Texas, which he won with 57 percent of the vote.

Under a 13-year path to citizenship, this would mean most undocumented immigrants could join the voting rolls in the 2028 presidential election (though the proposed 5-year timeline for citizenship under the DREAM Act and for agricultural workers would start the process even earlier than that)

And then the electoral math really becomes fun

To illustrate the potential voting shifts once immigrants are able to vote, look at Texas, Arizona and Georgia. The total undocumented immigrant population in each of those states exceeds Romney’s margin of victory.

Sure this sounds terrible, but listen to Steve Schmidt, the favorite Republican strategist of liberals everywhere.

Many Republican strategists, gives the party no long-term alternative but to welcome the new voters and hope this allows the party to compete for Hispanic voters in ways that are closer to how President George W. Bush performed in 2004. National exit polls that year showed he won 44 percent of the Hispanic vote. Some analysts have questioned this data, but there is little doubt that Bush performed significantly better with this group than Romney, who got just 27 percent.

If Republicans do nothing to repair their relationships with current and future Latino voters, “we certainly won’t be a national political party anymore,” said GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, a top adviser to John McCain in 2008.

If one adds 11 million new Hispanic voters after immigration reform but applies 2004 percentages, the damage to Republicans is real but much less severe: Romney would have still won border states Texas and Arizona, albeit by smaller margins, while Obama would have held other Latino-heavy swing states like Nevada and Florida by slightly larger margins than the ones he did win by.

So even in the imaginary Bush scores, we still lose the election and the Latino vote and we lose by a larger margin than Romney actually lost by.

And the brilliant new plan is to hope a Republican presidential candidate can win a share of the non-Cuban Latino vote that neither Rubio nor Ted Cruz could win… and still lose the election by an even bigger margin.

And a failure to score these super duper numbers means a landslide defeat as opposed to just a plain old regular defeat. Illegal alien amnesty. Why just shoot yourself in the head with a handgun when you can blow your head off with a shotgun?

Why settle for trying to swim ashore from a sinking boat, when you can tie lead weights to your ankles, chop off your arms and legs and then try to swim from the North Pole.

    Illegal amnesty has always been a scheme about keeping the Demsters in power for perpetuity. In fact, its essence is to overwhelm the system and create a wholly dependent class for generations to come. A dependent citizenry is a pliable one –

    If you include the illegal's family members that will be allowed to immigrate ,according to amnesty bill rumors, and the hispanic birth rate – almost 4 times higher than whites- the Republican party will never hold a majority in Congress or the presidency again.

    The Republican high command has a reason for their amnesty program.
    They are not going to get the Hispanic vote anymore than they will get the black vote.
    So what is their plan?
    The Spanish descendants in Mexico still own Mexico lock stock and barrel .
    The live behind walls as Charles Murray has forecast for America in one of his recent book.
    They live behind walls for safety ;but they still control Mexico and that makes them happy.
    So too our rich will live in castle like villas but they will not mind as they can pay for any protection the need.
    But they may have ignored what happened in Venezuela and Bolivia.

    The Left Wing is just delighted with the whole outcome.

    Hate to make a TV reference here–but it sooooo fits.

    Stealing a line from Game of Thrones:

    The republicans should be the one's to grant immigrants legal status. Turn it on them. Craig Biddle of the Objective Standard journal recommends these five points for immigration / foreign policy. (full article here .

    1. Repeal all laws restricting immigration; do away with all quotas, visas, green-cards, and the like; make open immigration the law of the land.
    2. Establish an objective screening process at designated points of entry along the U.S. border; turn away (or detain) only criminals, enemies of America, and people with certain kinds of contagious diseases.9
    3. Grant unconditional amnesty to all so-called “illegal” immigrants, and apologize to them for the trouble our immoral laws have caused them.
    4. Exclude immigrants from receiving welfare and from using government schools—and exempt them from paying taxes toward these immoral programs.
    5. Declare war on Iran; eliminate its current regime; and announce to the world that, from now on, this is how America will deal with regimes that threaten our citizens, our immigrants, or our allies. Turn next to the Saudi regime. Repeat as necessary.

    Democratic voters were the all-time stupid morons for electing Obama.

    But Republicans like Rubio are the world's all-time idiots in perpetuity.

    Since 2010, Senator Marco Rubio has made an about-face on his
    campaign promise not to support amnesty. Just one
    month prior to being elected, Rubio commented that an, "Earned path to
    citizenship is basically code for amnesty," and criticized the 1986
    amnesty law.

    Two years later, Rubio has become the public face of a
    "bi-partisan" plan to grant amnesty to 11-12 million illegal aliens
    in the country.

    Rubio, along with the other 7 'Gang Members', are Liars – tell these traitors to SHOVE AMNESTY

    Amnesty Will COST U.S. Taxpayers at Least $2.6 Trillion

    Illegal Immigrants do NOT respect the constitution
