Republicans are "in a demographic death spiral" and will fail in their effort to win the presidency if the party blocks an immigration overhaul, a leading GOP senator said Sunday.

If Repubs let that fiasco of an immigration Bill pass, the GOP is dead. Hispanics will never vote for Repubs cause Dems will keep bribing with free stuff. But it won't last too long cause America is almost bankrupt thanks to Obama.

Giving in to the the demands of illegals will never endear them to the GOP...they will always align themselves to the party that will prop them up rather than to teach them to fish. It's the new American way, to be dependent upon somebody else. The American initiative has been undermined by a party that supports those who make a living off others doing nothing. Sad...very sad.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 says"For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat."
FDR never meant welfare to be a way of life, rather it was there to prop folks up until they got back on their feet...the problem is that more and more prefer to be on the flat of their backs or to sit on their sofas doing nothing.

Democrats want amnesty because they are allegedly concerned about the poor illegal aliens. Now this idiot, Lindsey Graham, wants amnesty because he thinks his party would benefit. How about some of you so called representatives trying to do what's best for our country for a change. This is why many people are correctly coming to the conclusion that both parties suck.(Is it just me or is Graham developing a WC Fields nose?)

Some of us have been writing for months now about how the GOP will fail in 2016 in their effort to win the presidency if the party doesn’t change its tune from alienating everyone except old white men and the women who inexplicably sell their souls to be blindly obedient to them. Blocking an immigration overhaul is, of course, only one act upon which they seem hellbent toward self-destruction. The lovely Sen. Graham will need more than his characteristic batting of the eyes to seduce to the point of enlightenment his century-challenged, knuckle-dragging peers to his belated epiphany. Amazingly, they will not get the message. They’re hopeless victims of their own bigotry and neither change nor success is an option. We need for them to fail and they will.

Incompetence may have been merely entertaining during the last GOP primary “clown car” act, but not when we’re paying some members of Congress to do nothing but obstruct legislation that majority of constituents favor.

Nicely written but the content is poor. Signed, the knuckle dragger.

I won't argue with you on that point. We can all point fingers but in the end it is the collective that sends them to Washington.
The Diebold, ES&S and Sequoia ballot stuffing boxes are so engrained that the people have no say in who gets sent to Washington. On the outside chance that they may fail, there is always the USSC who already set the precedent that they will void any election in which the wrong guy wins and appoint the guy they like.

I hope you know that Democrats want Amnesty for Hispanics votes. They don't give a dam. Most American Citizens do not want them. We are having enough trouble supporting ourselves, much less all of Mexico.

To whom were you referring when you wrote “once we take completely over elections???”?

What is your plan for “taking over” elections? An armed siege of polling places? Continued redistricting to the point of completely blocking voters who disagree with you?

It is probably true that Hispanics generally tend to have conservative values, but it would be delusional to believe that would fuse them to vote against their own interests. Not all conservative people are self-defeating extremists.

If by “we” you mean the political party that has gone out of its way to alienate most voter groups, you’re in for a major disappointment. Please try to think rationally. And do try to be more original than using the same old childish clichés like “libtards” in an effort to insult your adversaries. It makes you appear socially, developmentally and intellectually challenged and petty as used without substance.

No they won't benefit at all. They are never going to get Hispanic votes. Obama bribes them with to many freebies.

They show signs of being turncoats. To put needs of lawbreaking illegals before the needs of Americans is unconscionable.

Yea, soon everyone will vote for the republican because people will start to understand that if we just give enough of our money to the rich, well, the rich will be even richer.
