1) from Vision to America, article titled 'Democrats Move to Make Voter Fraud Easier' - Feb. 6 - a Rush Limbaugh comment of Feb. 5.
Rush is commenting on an article in the New York Times titled 'Waiting Times at Ballot Boxes Draw Scrutiny', and 'reporting': "With studies suggesting that long lines at the polls cost Democrats hundreds of thousands of votes in November, party leaders are beginning a push to make voting and voter registration easier," - oh oh - "setting up a likely new conflict with Republicans" - as it should - "over a deeply polarizing issue." - as it is.
Rush is not amused. As he should not be.

Where are the outraged voices from the GOP? We already have computer geeks hacking into voting machines. What we need is fingerprint IDs to cut down on voter fraud. The GOP better start acting mean and nasty like the Dems or we will never see a free election.

I wouldn't say it was being "mean and nasty" to want to clean up the corruption as regards voting. But we really do need to get 'mad as hell' - and 'not take it anymore' - really do something about this vitally important matter. (As ElizabethMC says above, voting is a 'sacred right'.)
You have one suggestion, Remington 870, that should be considered. There is also the quicker (if not as precise)'finger' test of requiring voters to dunk their finger into purple dye. But a photo voter ID card is probably the best idea - with strong measures in place to keep them from being counterfeited.
One area where a strong federal govt. would be a good idea is for such a govt. - after it has been cleaned up, of course, of people of a totalitarian mentality (of either the far Left or the far Right; with their similar New World Order ambitions, just a different nest of vipers at the top of the pyramid of power) - to say to the States that 'you are disenfranchising U.S. citizens of their sacred vote and its meaningfulness if you are not running honest elections in your State; if you do not introduce strict voter ID measures, and otherwise clean up your voting registration and recording act, we will sue you, and will cut off any federal government grants to those States that won't comply with free and fair election requirements'.
Or something to that effect. Whatever is legal, and is bipartisan, and sends the signal that We the People mean business in this matter. And that is something that the States should be able to say Yes to, back to the federal government; instead of all the Nos that they have been having to say recently to a corrupt and renegade federal government.
It's time, really, to get our act together, as citizens of a free country; in this matter, as a key issue to all the other matters afflicting our nation in this day and age. Which would have the Founding Fathers turning over in their graves, if they knew; groaning, 'We did our best to warn you. From there, it was up to you.' Meaning, now: Us.
2) from Veterans Today, article titled 'The Gang of Eight Immigration Constituency' - blog by Sartre Batr - Feb. 4. My comment early Feb. 6:
Excellent article, Sartre.
Only, Republican constituents should not allow the Left to get away with the canard that they don't want "foreigners" in the country. We're talking here about illegal aliens; vast hordes of whom are eating away at the infrastructure of the nation like a hive of termites.
The Republican House has to get serious about immigration reform. REAL reform. Which includes doing more to erstwhile employers of illegals than just slapping them on the wrist with a paltry fine. Once the word gets out that Uncle Sugar is no longer in the business of looking the other way, the illegality will stop - on both sides of that equation.
3) from Washington Times: 'Top Democrat warns against using term 'illegal immigrants'' - Stephen Dinan - Feb. 5 (reposted on Patriot Update; same date)
"I hope no one uses the term illegal immigrants here today. Our citizens are not - the people in this country are not illegal. They are out of status. They are new Americans that are immigrants." - Rep. John Conyers Jr., Michigan Democrat (top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee)
(a more accurate term: illegal aliens…)

There is meaning in words, John, If you change the words, you change the meaning.
Oh, but you knew that. Didn't you.
And you are the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee???
We are in deep trouble, as a nation. And as people living by logic, and reason.
And the rule of law.
...and a late entry; this from breitbart.com, article titled 'Cantor: Children Of Illegal Immigrants Should Get Citizenship' - blog by Tony Lee - Feb. 5.
Fortunately, most posters were against his proposal - and strongly so.
My comment posted Feb. 6:
A loud raspberry to Eric Cantor.
You dishonor all those immigrants who wait their turn for legal entry when you cave in to the queue-jumping illegals - many of whom are only here for the money, anyway; not the American, individual-rights culture. And many illegals, unfortunately, who are here, not to assimilate and become a good American citizen, but to play the demographic card to take over the Southwest states - at a minimum - for La Raza, in the Reconquista to re-establish (the mythical) Aztlan, as part of the Mexica Movement.
Such people we don't need here; let alone give them a free ride.
What fools we would be to take your advice, Mr. Cantor. The American nation deserves better from a House Majority Leader, of a political opposition party that should, by rights, be standing up to the incumbent on such an issue.
I won't call the man occupying the White House the president, since he is an illegal as well. But that's another subject - although very much related: to the ignoring, and destruction, of the rule of law. Without which there lies anarchy; in a state of disorder, and application of arbitrary law, that morphs very quickly into tyranny.
Now tell me again, Mr. Cantor; what was that that your grandparents fled from???...

my comment Feb. 6:
And just so did Ronald Reagan make a terrible mistake, when he could have stopped all this sort of nonsense in its tracks.
I fear it's too late now. Unless American patriots are of a hardier breed than they have shown themselves to be so far. All hat and no cattle.

That sounds all good and nice if you live in a dream world and don't live in the real world. The simple fact is, that will only open another floodgate we can't have open. Here we go again, another RINO.
I do understand the advantage the dems have over the reps among the majority of Hispanic voters, but all this amnesty, and loopholes to legal immigration is the wrong approach. It's a challenge, no doubt. Maybe we could reward those that take the legal route, with a more EFFICIENT, quicker way of becoming a citizen.
I do know of a Hispanic family that's hard working, self-sufficient, and have been waiting a long time to become citizens. They are buying my father-in-law's house. It's owner-financed because they can't get a bank loan. We trust them because they have been my late father-in-law's neighbors for years, and were good to him. It's good, honest people that could use a more expeditious way to become citizens.
My father-in-law was Hispanic as well. He lost his leg to a bullet while fighting the Germans in WWII, at age nineteen. He was finally awarded The French Legion of Honor at age 84. He also had a Silver Star and Purple Heart. He was an honest, hard-working man, despite his handicap, and believed in following the rules. He was a true American Patriot.
Thank you for this story, Michael.
It's just such immigrants that we owe some honor to, for doing the right thing. Not to dishonor them with the likes of amnesty to the law-breaking; who would therefore become citizens on their terms. Not those of the American republic.
Or only want citizenship in order to vote the nation asunder, in hiving off the Southwest into the Axtlan of La Raza, in their Reconquista scenario and intention.
I live in southern California. It has already started here. Maybe that's why I'm here. To say: This far. And no further. Legals: fine. Glad to have you with us, building the American melting-pot nation of the Founders's dreams. Illegals: Out.
