Illegal immigration is simply 'share the wealth’ socialism and a CRIME not a race!

William Wilberforce, the British parliamentarian and abolitionist, told his colleagues, “Having heard all of this, you may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”

Posts of the Day-Best of the Web

This is the way I see Free Republic.

When Free Republic started it was great. We finally had a weapon to use against the mainstream media's lies and distortions.

We had a huge hammer to go after the Democrats and the corrupt Clintons. We made their lives miserable and they hated life. We scored victory after victory and we were united. Free Republics mission charter was clear and unabiguous.

Root out that corruption! Stop that wasteful spending! Honor and promote our troops! Stop undermining the US Constitution! Strenghten our institutions and bring back integrity and honor!...

These were noble goals.

What went wrong? His name is Bush. Bush has presided over the status quo and despite his promise to change things, he has not delievered! The case against Bush and the Republicans is solid, the same way it was rock solid against the democrats.

The case against the Republican leadership:

1) Failure to effectively and expeditiously prosecute a just war.

2) Failure to prioritize the urgent need to secure the borders and get rid of the illegals and parasites.

3) Failure to prioritze and limit spending and excessive spending on both guns and butter.

4) Failure to act when our GI's are being scapegoated and unjustly convicted of "prisoner abuse" ---something that Rumsfeld and his generals ordered.

5) Failure to get results with our energy situation which is undermining individual and institutional fiscal solvency

6) Failure to see the threat from China and it's leverage over our economy and soon our security.

When people brought these issues up at Free Republic, Jim Robinson saw it as a "threat" and just banned banned banned. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. He has exiled so many republicans and conservatives that an unstoppable revolt in the ranks has occured.

There is a silver lining in all of this.

This has paved the way for the destruction of the Republicans and the Democrats and has opened the door for the triumph of a third party. It's amazing how things turn out, isnt it?

“'Few' ( relative to the entire population ) are ever drawn to any protest. “

This subject about "why bother to protest" reminds me of a quote I once heard read by Tom Tancredo at a rally. Tancredo said (paraphrasing) that whenever he feels down and overwhelmed, facing constant opposition, he remembers this story written by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel. Tancredo then pulled a worn peice of paper out of his wallet, unfolded it, and read it to the crowd:

"One day a Tzadik came to Sodom; He knew what Sodom was, so he came to save it from sin, from destruction. He preached to the people. "Please do not be murderers, do not be thieves. Do not be silent and do not be indifferent." He went on preaching day after day, maybe even picketing. But no one listened. He was not discouraged. He went on preaching for years. Finally someone asked him, "Rabbi, why do you do that? Don't you see it is no use?" He said, "I know it is of no use, but I must. And I will tell you why: in the beginning I thought I had to protest and to shout in order to change them. I have given up this hope. Now I know I must picket and scream and shout so that they should not change me." [52]
