It was a great night if you are an illegal in this country! McCain is for amnesty and the democrats, well, they could care less about our border or security. So from a presidential perspective, illegals will have a friend in the White House if McCain ends up with the nomination.
It may be me, but when I read this story about illegal’s getting tax rebates from this “stimulus” package, I almost busted an artery! This economic downturn is a result of lending money to people that couldn’t afford to pay it back; it is not about consumer spending overall. And by the way, the top 10% of wage earners are responsible for 40% of consumer spending anyway. I have been saying all along, cut tax rates for the people that pay them, and particularly our small business and corporate payroll taxes. That is where we need “stimulus”.
Illegal immigrants do not deserve a rebate and neither do the people that don’t pay taxes; that is welfare. I am sick of this pandering class of politicians that believe the government has a role in every nook and cranny of our lives.
So conservative’s better wake up and unite around Romney if we have any hope of stopping the McCain train. Huckabee needs to get out of the way and stop the ego trip. This is not a personality contest. We need an economic literate in the White House that has a chance to win in the general election. Not another pro government socialist. It is time to get back to our founding roots, and stand up for what has made this country great; individual opportunity and ingenuity. Just a thought…
