Amnesty for illegal aliens: A terrible idea for everyone except Democratic leaders

It is suicide for the Republican party and for our country.  We have everything to lose and nothing to gain.

Via Amnesty as Suicide:

Immigrants tend to vote Democratic not because they’re withdrawing their support from Republicans until the GOP works with Democrats on immigration reform, but because they benefit from generous social programs, she added.

“They’re not for amnesty,” she said. “They’re for the goody handouts of Democratic party… [A]mnesty is suicide for the conservative movement and the Republican party.”

Opening the Third World floodgates Teddy Kennedy maliciously unlocked with his 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act would exacerbate every problem we face, including but not limited to crime, urban blight, unsafe highways, high unemployment, unsustainable entitlement spending, cultural balkanization, a deteriorating work ethic, and the decay of our government into a banana republic.

This is a price people like Obama are willing to pay for obvious reasons. They prefer the Third World ideologically, and find a wretchedly impoverished, government-dependent population with no cultural commitment to constitutional principles easier to rule.

Why Republicans go along with this treason is a mystery, even in the short term. Not only will the Third Worlders vote overwhelmingly Democrat, but the conservative base will stay home in disgust.

 

The importance of discernment and clear thinking

Ann Coulter makes some excellent points in Beware of Liberals Who Come in Evangelicals’ Clothing:

Any Evangelical promoting the McCain-Rubio amnesty plan has the moral framework of Planned Parenthood. Like the abortion lobby, they have boundless compassion for the people they can see, but none for those they can’t see.

One Evangelical after another told the Times that they no longer believe Americans should have control over who immigrates here on the basis of having met illegal aliens in their pews. The millions harmed by illegal immigration are left out of the equation. They don’t go to church here.

Similarly, the pro-choice crowd is brimming with compassion for girls who have gotten pregnant by accident. They’re in high school, their whole lives are ahead of them, it’s one mistake! The babies don’t count because they’re out of sight.

The Rev. David Uth, head pastor of First Baptist Orlando, said that based on “the stories out there in the pews” from illegals who “have made friends and who have become close with people here,” there was momentum in his church to “do something to address their needs.”

Mr. Uth and his parishioners will never hear stories from the thousands of Americans killed every year by illegal aliens. They won’t be sitting in the pews with those murdered and maimed in Boston last month by a conspiracy of immigrants.

They won’t hear from hospitals and school systems in border states forced into bankruptcy because they have to provide free services to illegals. They won’t chat with farmers and ranchers whose livestock and property are stolen or destroyed by illegal aliens.

It is sad to see people make un-principled decisions just because they feel sorry for someone they know.  I’ve seen countless people switch positions to directly oppose the Bible just because they know someone who is gay and they want them to be “happy.”  Or they become pro-choice because they feel sorry for a pregnant teen.  Or they oppose immigration laws because they know an illegal alien.  It is such a sad case of abandoning critical thinking skills and not thinking about the other victims and about what God says.  As Christians we should be mature, clear thinkers and not let emotions lead us to take immoral positions on these issues.

Roundup

Comedian Jon Lovitz mugged by reality — twice! — First, he felt betrayed by Obama’s class warfare and lies.  Then he found out how “tolerant” his liberal fans were of opposing viewpoints.  Ouch.

Obama’s creepy composite character, “Julia,” and her cradle-to-grave consumption of other people’s money should make even Liberals realize how ridiculous his government-will-solve-all-your-problems worldview is. But alas, discernment seems to be at an all-time low.

By her mid-twenties, Julia is a litigious member of the workforce suing for equal wages while hard working Americans subsidize her. She has her fatherless child and for twenty years drops off the map. That’s the most curious part — that and the fact that this paragon of Obama’s liberal America has no documented abortions and was not herself aborted.

James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal points out “[t]hat period includes the typical peak earning years–the time at which, assuming Julia is gainfully employed, she will be paying the biggest price for “Obama’s” generosity.” We know nothing of her time during those key years. Perhaps they were of little consequence because her whole adult working life was spent paying for the benefits of those who came after her.

That is the key. There is no mention of cost, no mention of debt, and no mention of tax burden for Julia. She receives everything and gives nothing. What is Julia’s fair share? In retirement, Barack Obama claims social security helps her live comfortably. Really? It boggles the mind.

This is Barack Obama’s vision of America — a welfare state from cradle to grave where parents and spouses are not needed because you have a federal government there for you the whole way from the delivery room to the death panel.

Here’s a good spoof (hat tip: Matthew from Facebook)

Plus this from Roxanne:

This blogger will note a few other telling problems with Julia’s life: no where does it mention where this money is coming from.  It assumes that social security will be available into the indefinite future, which is plainly erroneous. It also assumes that income-based repayment for college will exist throughout Julia’s life, which is also erroneous (explanation to follow shortly).  Julia has a sexy job as a web designer, but it never mentions that any old college major won’t qualify her for that job, nor does it say that she eschewed the liberal arts in favour of computer science.   Julia has a baby at age 31 but still needs more government help than my parents did when they were in their very early 20s. No where does Julia turn to charity, participate in charity or her community (except for a community garden, which is helpful only to those in her nice, middle-class area), go to church, or do many other things that normal Americans do.  It never said, “Julia’s Catholic Church shut itself down rather than pay for abortion drugs, so she was left to say her rosary at home.”  No mention is made of how Julia’s one child, and, by extension, everyone’s precious one baby, can pay for Social Security for their parents.

More reality from Roxanne as she nails the upside-down nature of Obamacare:

The only way that ObamaCare can control costs (and not reduce them, see above), is to ration care.  We’ll eventually all have “free” doctor’s visits but be denied life-saving treatment, which is the exact opposite result that you want for insurance, which is supposed to cover the really expensive things you can’t pay for yourself.  It would be like homeowner’s insurance that covers a leaky faucet for free but doesn’t give you a cent if your house burns down.

Some good pro-life news: Georgia becomes 6th state to protect pain-capable preborn children.  That’s progress, but even if someone doesn’t feel pain it is still immoral to kill her because she’s unwanted.  Pain-free killing is still killing.  If we really love our neighbors we’ll fight abortion.

The Left Got it Right: Let’s Drop the “I-Word”

So today, let’s acknowledge that words are indeed important. Let’s follow the lead of our friends on the progressive left. Let’s agree that “illegal alien” is inaccurate, insufficient, and possibly charged with interplanetary racism.

Today, let’s begin using the far more accurate and race-neutral term of criminal entrant.

Black Teen Run Off the Liberal Plantation – fascinating story about a teenager who dared to write about the similarities of slave-owner mentality and those who rule her schools.  Monopolists don’t like to give up their power!  Oddly, she hasn’t received a call from the President.

And see Rewriting History, where Stan exposes the many myths about which political party has really helped black people.

California apparently solved all their financial problems, so they are branching out.  Now the anti-choice zealots want to take away the rights of people who want to leave the LGBTQX lifestyles.  Stan has a good analysis.  Apparently all the stories of change from places like this must be lies, because the State of California said they couldn’t be true.

General Electric: $14,000,000,000 in profits, 57,000 page tax return, zero taxes paid.

The sole purpose of corporate taxation is that it allows for Big Government “picking winners and losers,” as Paul Ryan puts it. Not even corporations that lack GE’s cozy relationship with the Obama Regime pay the taxes themselves; all costs are passed along to customers. In any case, the government’s main source of income is Ben Bernanke’s metaphorical printing press. The tax that actually produces the most revenue is inflation, a means of taxing every penny in your pocket.

The point of our tax code is to allow bureaucrats to “reward our friends and punish our enemies,” to use Obama’s phrase. Otherwise, corporations would devote their resources to hiring, cutting costs, and producing better products rather than to bribing the leeches in Washington.

“Attacked by tolerance.”  Not coming soon to the mainstream media near you.  These would be front-page “hate crimes” if done in the other direction.  I expect this hypocrisy from the pro-LGBTQX groups, but not from those claiming the name of Christ who aid, abet and encourage them.  I pray that they all repent and believe.

This is a great video by those upset that Obama is taking all the credit for killing Bin Laden.

Leviticus 19 and illegal immigration

Theological Liberals are often guilty of practicing Dalmatian Theology, where they claim that the Bible is only inspired in spots and that they are inspired to spot the spots, or Advanced Dalmatian Theology, where God is also changing spots and adding or removing spots, and, oddly enough, He is only telling theological liberals and progressives.

A prime example of that is in the case of illegal immigration (a phrase they can’t bring themselves to utter, always leaving off that pesky “illegal” part).  They are quick to quote Leviticus 19 to support their open borders / U.S. law defying view:

Leviticus 19:33–34 (ESV) When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

False teachers such as Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis insist that we should apply that teaching to the U.S. But do they preach that we should follow the next chapter as well, not to mention the rest of Leviticus or the Old Testament?  Of course not.

Leviticus 20:10–13 (ESV) If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. If a man lies with his father’s wife, he has uncovered his father’s nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. If a man lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death; they have committed perversion; their blood is upon them. If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

I could offer fifty more examples like that from the Old Testament and the New.  But they just pick and choose what verses they like and ignore the context.

They ignore true teachings, such as that Jesus is the only way to salvation (over 100 times) and they teach a perverted view of the Gospel, yet pull out Israelite-specific commands like the one above and try to force their (misunderstood) religious beliefs on others.  Where is the ACLU when you need them?

Was Leviticus 19 written to Christians in the U.S., let alone the secular U.S.? No. Should we treat people kindly no matter where they are from? Of course. But should we obey the laws? Yep. Should we protect the borders? Of course.

Side note: Regarding the argument about the Israelites being illegal aliens, that is simply false. They were originally given permission to be in Egypt.

If they wanted to consider something more universal in nature, they should read Leviticus 18 (read the beginning and ending of the chapter — God is punishing the Canaanites and warning Israel not to be like them). Then read Leviticus 19, which applies specifically to the Israelites.  (Also see flaws of the shellfish argument for reading Leviticus in context.)

Why doesn’t Jim reference Romans 13 and the command to obey the laws of the country?

You get the same type of selective Biblical references by false teachers such as Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie here.  Follow the comments section and watch how he continually labels as racist anyone who disagrees with him, and how he dodges the question about whether it would be racist if Obama enforced the immigration laws of the country.  Theological Liberals really are pathetic in how they play the race card.

Should we love our neighbors?  Of course.  Let’s work the root causes and help Mexico fix their country.  If you think the U.S. is bad, go live in Mexico.  And as usual, let’s love our neighbors consistently with our own time and money.  Wallis & Co. want to love some of their neighbors with your money, and that isn’t biblical or logical.

And let’s read the Bible in context and not just pull out the things we like.
