Ann has a point, I would probably tear up my card …
Ann Coulter pens in an article on Ann Coulter.com, ”If the GOP is this Stupid, It Deserves to Die.” Her comments are in reference to the Republicans ridiculous stance on Hispanics, illegal immigration and amnesty. The targets the GOP Ship of Fools of Four, Sens. Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio. Amnesty for illegals will destroy the Republican party, an Democrats are wetting themselves with joy that they have created this canard. As Ann states, even if Mitt Romney had won 70% of the Hispanic vote in 2012, he still would have lost. No Republican presidential candidate in at least 50 years has won even half of the Hispanic vote. So how do Republicans think this is a political winner for them? In essence what the “Ship of fools of 4″ is proposing is to piss off the Republican base and allow amnesty first, never protect the border and just allow an influx of low skilled illegals and their families into a country that already in in debt, has record number of Americans on unemployment, on Food Stamps and disability. Good grief, this is a recipe to make the United States, Mexico. How on earth can Republicans thing that providing amnesty to people where a large majority will become dependent on government is good for them, or better yet and more important, good for America?
I have to admit, if the GOP goes for this amnesty first, protect the border whenever and allow 11-30,000,000 illegals and their extended this families into the US, not only will the GOP die, so will America. That many low income, low skilled individuals can do nothing for the United States except destroy it. Rubio talks about the extra tax revenue. Is this man on crack? What tax revenue, 47% of Americans already do not pay taxes and many in this category actually get money back from the federal government in the formed of “earned income tax credits”. Where do you think the majority of low skilled illegals will fall in the tax payer structure of the US? Has everyone forgot the rule of law in all of this? Hell, if we are going to just reward illegals, why don’t we provide amnesty to every one else in the United States who has broken the law? Seriously, amnesty for all individuals who have broke any law of the United States, forgive them of their crimes whether it be assault, robbery, drugs, rape, child molesters, white collar crime, etc. Sound insane? Then, why are politicians playing favorites as to what crimes they want to enforce and other that they do not?
Democrats terrify Hispanics into thinking they’ll be lynched if they vote for Republicans, and then turn around and taunt Republicans for not winning a majority of the Hispanic vote.
This line of attack has real resonance with our stupidest Republicans. (Proposed Republican primary targets: Sens. Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.) Which explains why Republicans are devoting all their energy to slightly increasing their share of the Hispanic vote while alienating everyone else in America.
It must be fun for liberals to manipulate Republicans into focusing on hopeless causes. Why don’t Democrats waste their time trying to win the votes of gun owners?
As journalist Steve Sailer recently pointed out, the Hispanic vote terrifying Republicans isn’t that big. It actually declined in 2012. The Census Bureau finally released the real voter turnout numbers from the last election, and the Hispanic vote came in at only 8.4 percent of the electorate — not the 10 percent claimed by the pro-amnesty crowd.
The sleeping giant of the last election wasn’t Hispanics; it was elderly black women, terrified of media claims that Republicans were trying to suppress the black vote and determined to keep the first African-American president in the White House.
Contrary to everyone’s expectations, 10 percent more blacks voted in 2012 compared to 2008, even beating white voters, the usual turnout champions. Eligible black voters turned out at rate of 66.2 percent, compared to 64.1 percent of eligible white voters. Only 48 percent of all eligible Hispanic voters went to the polls.

It is mind boggling that it has come to this. The stupidity of allowing illegals amnesty first will be the death of anything that we used to recognize as an America we once knew. Guess who would be paying for their Obamacare? Guess who would be a drain on the entitlement programs of the US? Guess who would not be paying any income taxes?
Folks, immigration is not set up to benefit those individuals wanting to come to America, immigration law is made to benefit the country and who should be allowed in to provide the skill and knowledge to make the country better. The United States cannot be a welfare state to the world, as it is, we cannot even afford to be a welfare state to our own citizens.
