The governor of NY, Elliot Spitzer who recently was pushing to give illegal’s drivers licenses, has gone down in flames, utterly defeated, shown the exit, and has heard the wrath of the people. He said he didn’t “need a stethoscope to hear the pulse of NY” on this issue. No kidding! Even in the liberal leaning state of NY, people understand the issue of illegal immigration. They want it stopped and they want it fixed. Giving criminal’s driver’s licenses is not the way to fix it.
I can’t wait for Hillary’s response. She is on the ropes and the other democratic presidential hopefuls can smell the blood. It will be interesting to see if Barack the “I can’t pledge allegiance to America” or “put my hand over my heart during the national anthem” Obama, can capitalize on this issue. It is becoming so clear who these democratic candidates are, and this is good news for America. America needs to know, the current crop of democrats in power is a dangerous group of people to have in power at this time in our history.
There is one point I agree with Spitzer on, and that is his criticism of the federal government ignoring the illegal immigration issue, and leaving it to the states to handle. President Bush has failed in this area. He is an open borders supporter, and he is lucky he is not on the ballot again this year.
But today we celebrate another victory for America, all of us, rank and file democrats, republicans, and independents. They will be back to try again so we must keep our radar on and continue to defeat this lunacy when we see it. This is a critical issue in the upcoming presidential campaign along with National Security, and I believe they go hand in hand. If we as a people could unite on Social Security reform, and reduced government intervention in our lives, like we have on illegal immigration, we’d be on to something here. Just a thought…
