Let illegal immigrants vote? In what world does that make any sense? Given this logic, why don’t we let anyone who wants to vote, vote? Why shouldn’t that family from London vacationing at Disney World get to vote? Or the businessman who travels to the US for work several times a year? How about that large Chinese family taking in the sites at the Grand Canyon?
In fact, all of those people should really be given a crack at voting first, no? At least they are here legally. They’ve broken no laws to enter our country, and they are breaking no laws by being here. If anyone should get a chance to vote, it should be these very legal visitors. But, of course, allowing any citizen from another nation to vote here would be pure folly!
So how is it possible that anyone would think citizens of other nations who are here illegally, and avoiding our legal system as best they can, be given the right to vote?
I really have no idea. I’ve tried to wrap my head around this and understand the argument, but I just cannot. Working in this business, I’ve made friends with good conservatives from various other nations – Ireland, Australia, England and so on – who would love to become citizens of our fine country. But they can’t. It’s too hard. Our friend, Jonathon Dunne over at Freedom’s Disciple, has been waiting for 10 years now to leave Ireland and become a legal resident (and one day citizen) of the USA. That’s ten years of trying to enter the system legally.
Why? Because illegal immigrants have flooded our nation, forcing us to choke off the flow of legal immigration.
So who are the fiendish malcontents who want to exacerbate our illegal immigration problem by giving lawbreakers the right to vote? The Democrat Party, of course.
A recently released Rasmussen poll found that 53% of Democrats believe that tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote!
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that one-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (35%) now believes that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes. Sixty percent (60%) disagree, while five percent (5%) are undecided.
Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.
This simply continues the recent trend of Democrats collectively putting their party ahead of our country and seemingly trying to do everything within their power to destroy our economy and our laws.
