I've been telling you for weeks that the driving motivation behind Democrats refusal to back any plan to seal our borders against the invaders form Mexico was tied to one thing ... votes. The Democrats see the gate-crashers as an almost inexhaustible source of new votes for Democratic candidates. They're not citizens, you say? True enough, but since when has that meant anything to the left and to Democrats when it comes to pushing their "everybody in the pool" attitude on voting? Do you remember the 1996 elections in California? Orange County Republican Bob Dornan was running against Loretta Sanchez. This was quite an interesting election. Miss Loretta had tried several times to fun for office under her married name of Loretta Brixley. Didn't work. Then, an epiphany! Why not revert to her maiden name of Sanchez? There are a tens thousands of Hispanics in the district, and though many of them are illegal, being the informed and knowledgeable voters that they are, they would certainly respond better to the Sanchez name than to the Brixley name. So ... change her name she did, and win she did ... on the strength of thousands of votes for unregistered Latino voters. The Republicans, recognizing that some pretty massive voting fraud had taken place, immediately started an investigation. The Democrats, just two years from having lost control of the House, immediately started screaming racism. The tactic worked, the investigation into rampant illegal voting was dropped, and Sanchez remains in the House of Representatives

Well ... it certainly looks like we're set for a repeat of 1996 in California, just a bit further South. In San Diego we have a Democrat named Francine Busby who is a candidate for the vacated seat of disgraced Republican Randy "Duke" Cunningham. In a nutshell, Busby is telling Latinos that they don't need to here legally to vote. Here's what happened at this campaign appearance. A man stood up in the back of the room and said "I want to help, but I don't have papers." Now this was a blatant admission by this man that he was in this country illegally. Let's pause for a moment and think about just how bad things are when someone who has broken the law by entering this country illegally can actually feel free to go to a political rally and announce that fact! Not only announce it, but then express a desire to help Democrat candidate in an election! And why help the Democrat? Because the Democrats are the party of amnesty, that's why! But, we're getting away from Francine Busby here. What did Francine Busby say to this illegal? She said "Everybody can help, yeah, absolutely, you all can help. You don't need papers for voting. You don't need to be a registered voter to help."

What? You don't need papers for voting? What kind of papers? Well .. papers that show you're in this country legally! This was nothing less than a bold, blatant invitation to every illegal alien and non-citizen living in this particular congressional district to go the polls and put this wonderful Democrat, Francine Busby, into office.

You must know that as soon as a recording of Busby's remarks hit the local talk shows she started backtracking --- big time. Now we're getting the "I misspoke" nonsense from her campaign. Busby's Republican opponent, Brian Billbray (why, by the way, has a strong anti-illegal immigration stance) said it best when he said that at worst, Busby was encouraging illegals to vote, and at best, she was encouraging people in this country illegal to work actively on her political campaign.

Now all of you know that I try to avoid clichés like the plague. But you really need to connect the dots on this one. Part of the Democrat game plan for returning to power in Washington is to make it as easy for the growing number of Hispanic non-citizens, both those who are here legally and those who are here illegally, to vote in all elections. Francine Busby's statement, retractions notwithstanding, was just another dot for you to connect. Want some more? Try these:

  • Across the country Democrat activists are starting to push the idea of allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections.
  • Whenever any evil Republican comes up with the idea of making people show a picture ID to vote, or to register to vote, or when it is suggested that people should have to do something to prove their citizenship in order to register or vote, the Democrats are the first to howl like stuck pigs.
  • If fraud involving Latino voters is suspected, and someone suggests an investigation, Democrats will counter with charges of racism.
  • Democrats are in the lead when it comes to promoting some sort of immigration "reform" that will allow the 11 million illegals we currently have in this country to stay.

Do you have whacked around like a piñata to see what's going on here? Democrats have adopted a "whatever it takes" philosophy when it comes to regaining their power inside the Beltway. If it takes allowing anyone who can get to a voting booth to cast a vote, regardless of trivial matters like citizenship ... no problem! Just don't be stupid enough to announce it at an election rally.
