Eric Cantor... bragged last week about an internal poll showing him up 34 points against his primary challenger, Dave Brat. Despite being outspent 25:1 in the primary — that's not a typo, but twenty-five to one — Brat prevailed by beating Cantor by eleven points in an unusually high turnout....
[I]t should be noted that turnout in this primary was actually higher than those earlier primaries that nominated Cantor... "'Primary turnout was 45,000 2 years ago,' [Cantor pollster John] McLaughlin wrote. 'This time 65,000. This was an almost 50% increase in turnout.'"
e should water down and/or ignore present law" vs. "We should actually enforce present law." Candidates who support the former should learn the lesson that watering down immigration law is never a viable solution when unaccountable lawlessness prevails in the executive branch. This misadministration knows that woefully few incumbents have the guts to hold it accountable for blatantly ignoring and breaking laws. Deadlines it doesn't like, such as in Øfascist"care", are unilaterally changed. Timely informing Congress, such as was required before the Top Terrorists for Traitor swap, is treated like a mere suggestion by it. More to the point, it
"thinks" feels that holding or deporting egregious violators of our immigration laws is just an ignorable option, not a clearly strict statutory provision. It's little things like that that show the public any "reform" supported by Cantor et al-Øfascist is like the release of five top terrorists demanded by the Taliban. The only "deal" was to give the enemy everything it wants.
As much as these jokers in Washington may otherwise believe, we aren't stupid and foolish enough to fall for the Big Lie that "But It'll Be Different This Time!™." No, it won't. Lawless presidents do not extend the ground of public confidence in the government, nor best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.
Will the candidates who remain learn this lesson as regular Americans so painfully have? Or will a further number of them leave to spend more time with their families?
