The Rubio Issue for Conservatives

I am not normally a “one-issue” voter, but the immigration issue is “make or break” for this country. If the current immigration bill in the Senate (or anything even close to it) passes we will have given the Progressives millions of new voters. It could be argued that this will be the final nail in the coffin of the country┬áthat the Founding Fathers created.

Wait, you say. It will never pass the House. And you are right. The Senate version will not pass, but some have put together a scenario where it still could happen despite the best efforts of the Conservatives. (I’ll save that for another blog post.)

Conservatives have been burdened by not only the Progressive agenda from the left but a Republican Party ruled by Progressive elites.

The election of Obama in 2008 was the Howard Beale moment for Conservatives and resulted in the Tea Party movement. Until we find a way to resurrect that momentum Conservatives will be on the losing end.

The Conservatives have been busy trying to re-make the Republican Party from the inside and rightfully so, but there might come a time when that strategy has to be abandoned. Whether that happens or not we have to have a well established “farm team” producing Conservative candidates.

2010 produced a bumper crop of winning Conservatives. Some of them turned out to be not so Conservative. Big surprise!

I had high hopes for Rubio as I listened to his speeches as Speaker of the Florida House. So did millions of others.

But somewhere along the line Rubio decided that he was God’s gift to immigrants, buying into the lie that the Republican Party cannot move forward without the Hispanic vote.

In so doing, he has prostituted himself with the likes of Chuck Schumer and the rest of “the gang” (so much so that┬ámany now call him McRubio).

Will Rubio ever realize he has been had? Maybe. But even if he does, it’s probably too late to beg forgiveness and expect any result (although Mark Sanford seems to have pulled off a miracle).

We have to stop punishing ourselves for electing Rubio. He is not the first rising star to crash and burn, and he won’t be the last.

Marco Rubio WILL be replaced. The time to vet candidates is NOW!
