Conservatives for Big Government

Leave to Reason Foundation and  libertarians to Point out  hypocrisy of  Conservative Republican when it come to  limited government    Shikha Dalmia  has written  a wonderful article,  GOP’s border-control plan a recipe for bigger government, pointing out the hypocrisy.

“House Speaker John Boehner Thursday pulled the plug on his immigration reform “principles” after his fellow Republicans refused to go along.

One reason why the proposal received a cold reception was that the GOP’s self-appointed moral guardian Ann Coulter bandied surveys showing that immigrants will “wreck the country” with their Big Government-loving ways. “It’s not their [Republicans’] position on amnesty that immigrants don’t like,” she harrumphed. “It’s Republicans’ support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism.”

But if Republicans love liberty and small government, they sure have a weird way of showing it.”

The conservative republican position immigration and trade, how it violates the principals of individual liberty, capitalism, and limited government   is why I left the Republican Party, reject any form of conservatism, the tea party and conservative media.

I have to agree with her; the conservatives in the party want to restrict all immigration because new citizens tend to lean democratic.  The conservative in the republican like to dress restricting immigration in terms like securing the boarders first or reforming immigration while never saying how they will improve the legal immigration process. This bad policy has been going on since 1997 with an article in 1997 National Review Electing a New People. For once I wish a Republican get a  back bone and stand  up to the likes of Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh and tell them both, if you don’t like it then go start your own little party we will bury you and be rid of  the specter of the Know Noting party.
