Let me ask you, just for “giggles” sake……… At what point do you “come to your senses” and turn your sights from Donald Trump to Jeb Bush? Or Jeb! Or Yebbie?
The GOP establishment (which the Refuge dubs “GOPe”) devised a wide-ranging set of tactics to reach that goal:
- Hidden within the massive CRomnibus bill to fund the government were obscure federal election law changesthat allowed unlimited SuperPAC (large political action committees unaffiliated with specific candidates) contributions.
- They funded SuperPACsin order to incentivize the desired candidate behavior
- They changed the nomination rulesof the 2016 primary (e.g., “winner take all delegates”) to allow an unpopular candidate like Jeb to secure the nomination with only 20% (one-fifth!) of the delegates
- They altered the calendar dates of primaries to advantage a weak, establishment candidate (Bush) that had little, if any, grassroots support.
All of these tactics were designed to support what the Refuge calls the “Splitter Strategy“: a plan to dilute the GOP field with as many candidates as possible in order to erode the support of a popular, grassroots candidate.http://www.independentsentinel.com/smashing-the-gop-establishment-trump-bush-cruz-and-me/
So who is funding the GOPe? While some point to Wall Street, I believe other forces are primarily responsible. Wall Street funds both Democrats and Republicans. They don’t care which party wins.
The Chamber does need cheap labor and a high birth rate that creates new cheap labor. Which is where open borders and amnesty enter the equation.
Bush, speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference in Washington, made a pitch for immigration reform, saying America needs more new workers to help pay for retirees — “to rebuild the demographic pyramid” as he put it.
“Immigrants are more fertile,” Bush said. “And they love families and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.”
Bush’s reference to the fertility of immigrants stirred up an immediate flurry of activity on Twitter and the comment sections of news websites. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/jun/18/jeb-bush/jeb-bush-says-immigrants-are-more-fertile/
In addition, Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.
