The one thing I strive for in life is consistency. I don’t care if you’re liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican; you’re an absolute hypocrite in my eyes if you’re not consistent. So, it is with that in mind that I give you today’s thoughts.
The Obama administration is hypocritical, as is all of the liberal left. They are so inconsistent on law that there really isn’t even a debate. Let me explain. The liberals are all excited about gun laws. They think we need more laws, and that people that break these laws should be held accountable because people that are the victims of these mass shootings and even the drive-bys in Chicago and the one-on-one shootings take people from our lives. These gun laws need to be tougher.
Yet, on the same hand, these very same people are the ones that are willing to overlook the fact that there are about 11 million ILLEGALS in this country right now. THEY broke the law too. It’s obvious, if you’re going to use the argument that our gun laws aren’t tough enough, that our immigration laws certainly have gaping holes the size of Wyoming in them. Yet liberals are so wont to overlook the “Illegal” part in “Illegal Alien”, that they’ve coined the term “undocumented alien” to help them feel better. The fact of the matter is these people ARE here illegally. They snuck into our country, they’re living in the shadows, and granted, while they aren’t doing work that I would necessarily do, they ARE taking work from Americans. Why isn’t the left complaining about that?
With the workforce in America shrinking, and people complaining about not being able to find a job, it’s exactly the time when workers lower their expectations and take jobs they normally wouldn’t take. Of course, it’s not just the illegals that are to blame. We have to be consistent here and that means we have to also blame the companies that are knowingly (or unwilling to check them out) hiring illegals because they can pay them lower than minimum wages and pay them under the table. That guarantees that the illegals will stay illegal. They’ll stay in the shadows and won’t have a shot at the Great American Dream. Not at least in their lifetime.
If the left truly wants to use the analogy that we need stricter gun laws to stem the tide of gun violence, then be consistent and also go along with the statement that we need stronger immigration laws to stem the tide of illegal aliens entering this country. But that would never happen. Just like it would never happen if the NRA backed Democrats. They’re all about the vote. If you can show them how by changing their tune, they will gain votes (or the Republicans will lose votes), they’ll do handstands in the aisles. If you can’t, they want nothing to do with you. And that, as Lily Tomlin used to say…is the truth…Pfffft!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
