Just Build Your Fence And Shut Up Already December 11, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries, SC Politics.
REPUBLICANS ARE SUCH PANDERERS
That’s because once the presidential circus leaves the Palmetto State in January, our local kneejerkers are planning to pump up the volume on the issue in a big way. Responding to polls that show illegal immigration as a hot topic among local voters, it should come as no surprise that South Carolina politicians are poised to make this their signature issue as a means of shoring up their abysmal conservative credentials in an election year.
Whatever … South Carolina has about as much chance of solving the immigration problem as it does of reversing global warming. Which is to say zero. In fact, asking South Carolina to solve anything is a lot like giving a Rubik’s Cube to a dyslexic baboon, or expecting your pet hamster to single-handedly stabilize a shaky national economy.
Seriously, for a state that relies on illegals to operate its multi-billion dollar tourism industry (one of the few things we actually do kinda sorta well in this state), South Carolina’s Republican Majority sure is breathing some serious fire on this issue.
Desperate to avoid responsibility for a shitty economy, shitty health care system and ridiculously shitty education system, all these ass-clowns are doing is looking for a convenient bogeyman to divert your attention, thus enabling them to continue their wasteful and incompetent Nineteenth Century ways.
And believe us, “immigration reform” is more than just a key to that strategy, it is that strategy.
Don’t believe the hype, people.
Sure, go ahead and vote for the presidential candidate who’s promising to build you the highest border fence if that’s what floats your boat, but don’t think for a second that these local jokers are going to do anything on this issue other than use it to get reelected so that they can keep blowing more of your money.
