All McCain would have to do to secure a win this Fall would be to, tomorrow, stop over in Mexico and tell Mexico to provide for it’s own citizens, that the U.S. isn’t going to give any more millions (or billions) to Mexico for any reason whatsoever until Mexico reimburses the U.S. for, well, maybe so much as one-percent of the costs over the past, oh, say, five years that the U.S. has spent on healthcare, housing, food and educations for Mexican Nationals.
Or, say something approximating that, even so much as related to that. And say it to all the nations in Central America (and Asia) from whence the largest majority of illegal aliens in the U.S. originate.
The important thing would be to see, hear and read that McCain has taken a realistic and blunt tact with Mexico (and the rest): no more “Hispanic/Latino” pandering, just an entire turnaround by McCain in all things related to that general theme, a permanent end to this catering to crime and exploitations of our nation (and that includes our borders and our immigration laws) by a presumed ticket-to-pass, the Hispanic/Latino ethnicity (or, that which they themselves define as their “blood” that is their “race”). (Same goes for all exploitive attempts and movements by way of race and/or ethnicity — Obama’s not excluded here, nor is his campaign.)
From there, McCain can go all the way to Columbia — an allied democracy with the U.S. who does deserve our nation’s respect — but, instead, he still won’t come out in front of this ridiculous pandering issue as to certain ethnic supremacists. I don’t hear/read that Columbia’s engaged in this game but the nations (and their populations) of Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and parts of Brazil are, so, why fool around with this hand-holding language with ethnicists who never seem to ever, actually, like the U.S. no more than they respect our boundaries.
What I’d really appreciate hearing is a Presidential candidate (and President) emphasizing the importance and value of U.S. citizenship and why there are requirements involved, and that these requirements and conditions must be respected. Because I’ve yet to understand — academically or intellectually — how it is that someone from another nation is entitled by sheer basis of their DNA to U.S. citizenship, and/or to “bypass” the laws of the U.S. in regards entry, residency and use of our nation.
But politicians in the U.S. are cowed in these regards, too eager to appease all “DNA-defined” demands for special treatment, and it renders our Constitution (what they’ve sworn to uphold) meaningless as to the illegal immigration problem besetting the U.S.A. Anyone can claim they’re owed and due a bypass because they “are (name the ethnicity or race here)” and associated groups then threaten bad publicity if the demands are not met, and politicians quickly forget those oaths of office. It’s a big problem for us voters and citizens here, it’s created a crumbled lack of confidence in our own government due to it’s failure to apply the laws equally (also what the Constitution states).
McCain could win if he’d show a degree of the fortitude and candor of, say, Dwight (“Ike”) Eisenhower:
…Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America’s southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond.
President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today’s force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol (…read the full article).
Because there are many voters who really — really — want to see this problem solved by our government and solved immediately. Obama’s not going to solve it, he’s going to work the burgeoning of the problems into more monstrous proportions than they are already (Obama wants illegal aliens — and their families — and more of both — to receive “national healthcare” in the U.S., billed to the U.S. taxpayers, to the detriment of taxpayers and citizens alike economically and resulting in deprived access to healthcare options for taxpayers and citizens), and McCain’s still devoting far more attention if not “sensitivity” to Hispanic/Latino ethnic-supremacists (and their various nations of reference, meaning, not the U.S.A. as to this “amnesty for illegal aliens” issue) than many of us can, in turn, respect about him.
So, win the Election this Fall, McCain, stand up for the U.S.A. and be like Ike.
Unfortunately, McCain is not being like Ike in this regard as to illegal immigration because he’s still loitering in that “be very unclear” place on the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens: he claims he “gets it” that the U.S. population by high majority opposes amnesty, but McCain then goes on to say he thinks “those already here should be able to stay” — which is McCain supporting amnesty for illegal aliens, so, no, McCain does not “get it”.
And it’s obvious that Barack Obama does not only not get it, either, but he’s working to service the problem.
