Part 3, Step 4 towards a National Debt Solution: Reaching Republicans.
We have to figure out how to interest Republicans in the only national debt solution = the only immigration solution, which too many Republicans (although not a majority) passionately resist now because they are willfully ignorant of the economic benefits of immigration.
(If you are offended by my criticism of your political party, then whether you are a Republican or Democrat, I hope you will at least credit me with equal severity towards both. I am a Republican, except where that conflicts with being a Christian. Both parties, along with myself, fall short of God’s standards which are meant for our own safety and prosperity.)
The main obstacle to saving America at this point will be Republicans, not Democrats. Democrats are the main obstacle to controlling our runaway debt in general, and they are primarily responsible for the murders of over 40 million taxpayers who would otherwise have been bailing us out by now. But if the Republican House repeals Numerical Limitations on work visas, Democrats will be under pressure to approve it, with “President Obama and leaders in Congress… vowing to pass immigration reform in 2013”.
Not that Democrat support can be taken for granted. Obama has deported more immigrants than any previous president. Raoul Lowery-Contreras told Channel 7 in San Diego that the DACA program is a trap: “This administration has deported more Mexicans than any administration in history and now they’re asking young kids, basically, to [report to ICE] with your name, address and phone number.” The DACA deferment is only promised for two years, and even that promise has no force of law; Obama can cancel it at any time. Certainly nothing requires Obama to extend the program beyond two years, which will be enough time for ICE to get everyone’s name, address, and phone records. The last time Obama promised to defer deportations, only 2% were deferred, and deportations set a record. (June 6, 2012, New York Times, Deportations Continue Despite U.S. Review of Backlog, by Julia Preston. Bob Quasius of Cafe Con Leche Republicans gives details of some of the political games Obama, and Democrats in general, play with immigrants.
Nevertheless, Democrats have publicly expressed such support for immigration reform, that it will be difficult for them to openly oppose a repeal of Numerical Limitations if Republicans pass it in the House.
So our principal and initial obstacle is House Republicans. We have to pressure them to welcome the one segment of human beings which they mistrust even more than Democrats.
To do that, we have to begin a national discussion of the evidence that this solution will save America from our debt, and is the only thing that can.
Oh, and did I mention? We have to do this in less than 6 weeks.
You tell me how this is possible! It is not humanly possible! And yet it looks like we have a deadline racing towards us. A deadline created by the conjunction of the judgments of God for murdering babies and not “taking in” “strangers”, and the one lever Republicans can pull that will end the spiraling of our debt.
So let me assume, for argument’s sake, that we agree the only solution for saving America is to pressure Republicans as a Congressional majority to repent from their wicked ways and welcome 40 million of the one group of people they loathe even more then Democrats, as a result of a national discussion of the economic benefits of massive new immigration, and do it in only 6 weeks. What then? Is that all we have to change?
That would make it so much easier!
What is the obstacle to applying this pressure in six weeks?
A congressman can’t reverse his positions on a dime, unless a huge movement of voters in his district do too. 1 Samuel 8, and God’s struggle to get His people into the Promised Land, explains that it is not even God’s Will for any political leader to give his constituents more freedom or blessing than they are willing to tolerate. It is not God’s nature to drag people into Heaven, or, on Earth, into much better conditions than they want.
This is a spiritual obstacle, in addition to the more familiar obstacle that a number of politicians are moral cowards who will never lead their people to higher moral ground and will not even follow voters there, except reluctantly.
So our job is to reach tens of millions of Republicans, whose resistance to God’s solution is as principled as it is poorly informed. They have been fed bad information by Population Control abortionists like John Tanton whose resume proudly recounts his early years with abortion and population control before he got into immigration.
His personal website, linked at his resume, proudly affirms his zero population ideals. He calls himself “pro immigrant, but at sustainable levels.” In other words, zero. Or rather, minus 12 million. He founded or co-founded most immigration restrictionist organizations.
We need to educate them, relieve them of their ignorant prejudices about immigrants, engage them in a discussion about the economic benefits of massive new immigration, and motivate them to write to their Congressmen to express their support for saving America via the only solution that remains.
In six weeks.
So let me assume, for argument’s sake, that we agree the only solution left is to reach tens of millions of Republicans, relieve them of their ignorance about immigration’s benefits, and get them to pressure their congressmen to save America. What then? Is that all we have to change?
It would be so easy if that were all we have to do! That would be almost comfortable, compared with this next step, which I dread mentioning, because this is where things start getting personal. This is where I have to trouble friends whom I know personally, whose resistance to these changes runs incredibly deep.
