So they Tea Party didn’t go anywhere, and has gotten bigger. And what about the Republicans??? The lamestream had hoped …
The tyranny your parents talked about is here …
How about the regime using the data to disable political opponents, like they did with Romney? Nixon anyone???
All gang of eight voted to table the Grassley amendment. Which was the fence … border security first.
Our new Democrats in waiting are now more hireable than those people who are here mow … No Obamacare, for our Democrats in waiting.
Yes folks they will take your jobs because employers will not need Obamacare while they are in waiting.
Today only 30% think the federal government is to be trusted on border security. Look how well it worked in 1986 with amnesty first and fence and security later … Which never came. BTW the Regan AMNESTY is Simpson-Mazzoli — The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA)
A worthy read follows. You are not alone as our WDC leaders march off the cliff.
Many pundits assumed that this would be the year that comprehensive immigration reform became law. The conventional wisdom was that President Obama’s re-election and his strong showing among Hispanic voters would force Republicans to go along.
Now, halfway through the year, the prospects for immigration reform have dimmed significantly.
Americans overwhelmingly feel that legal immigration is good for the country and think highly of immigrants. Seventy-six percent have a favorable view of immigrants who work hard, support their families and pursue the American Dream. Most (55 percent) still support the concept of comprehensive reform that will secure the border and legalize the status of many of those currently in the country illegally.
But they also want the system to work so that the border will be secure enough to prevent future illegal immigration.
That point has become a major political problem for those who favor reform. The so-called Gang of Eight proposal in the Senate legalizes the status of immigrants first and promises to secure the border later. By a 4-1 margin, voters want that order reversed.
Additionally, while voters think highly of immigrants, they don’t trust the government, and that skepticism is growing. In January, 45 percent thought it was at least somewhat likely that the federal government would work to secure the border and prevent future illegal immigration.Today, only 30 percent have that confidence.
Welcome to the tyranny your parents were trying to warn you about … The rest must be stoned if they don’t know by now.
The Examiner reported:
A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that just 30 percent of American voters trust the president and the rest of Washington on surveillance issues. A majority, 52 percent, said they don’t trust Washington is making sure the program is abiding by the Constitution.
And, Rasmussen said, they back that up with a belief by 68 percent that Uncle Sam is listening in on their calls.
And Obama promised if elected he would not allow any of this illegal wiretapping… HAh.
Thanks to the growing IRS scandal and governmental discrimination of conservative groups, the Tea Party approval rating jumped 14 points since January. Today 44% of voters have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party compared to 44% who don’t.
Favorables for the Tea Party have jumped since news broke that the Internal Revenue Service was targeting the grassroots movement and other conservative groups.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. That’s up 14 points from January but still down from April 2009′s high of 51% when the Tea Party protests against President Obama’s spending policies first erupted.
Forty-four percent (44%) also now view the Tea Party unfavorably, although that’s down five points from earlier this year. The latest findings include 18% with a Very Favorable opinion of the movement and 25% with a Very Unfavorable one. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.
So let’s make it happen this time Tea Party guys and gals … The Senate is within reach now …
The Democratic Party’s edge over the GOP on who the public trusts more on ethics and corruption issues has flipped in the wake of the IRS and Benghazi scandals, according to Rasmussen Reports.
Not only do voters trust Republicans more now, they have their highest level of confidence in the GOP and the lowest level in Democrats in seven months.
While the Democrats had an eight-point “trust advantage” over Republicans a month ago, Rasmussen’s latest poll said that edge has disappeared and now the GOP has a two-point advantage.
“With growing questions about Benghazi and actions taken by the Internal Revenue Service and the Justice Department, Democrats’ noticeable edge over Republicans in voter trust in the area of government ethics and corruption has disappeared,” said Rasmussen
