Lucy Moves the Football...Again

Democrats Never Keep Their Word
In 1981, Ronald Reagan became President, being sworn in for the first of two terms that would last until 1988, and they were good times for America. It began with the Iranian hostages -- held for more than Jimmy Carter's last year as President -- being released immediately upon hearing that Carter was gone.

Then Reagan cut taxes for the American people, slashing the top income tax bracket from 70% to 28%, a move that brought in more tax revenue over time simply because the formula was sound. With lower taxes, small businesses had more capital to invest, hired more people and created millions of new taxpayers. (Something about more paying less just doesn't compute in the Democratic mind).

Congress saw the increased revenues as a cash cow and accelerated spending, creating deficits that outpaced the boon in revenue. (Yes, Reagan also increased Defense spending, but we all know the ultimate benefit of that brilliant move).  In 1982, Congressional Democrats promised Reagan spending cuts in exchange for raising taxes. Reagan raised taxes, but the spending cuts never came; Lucy moved the football.

Then, in 1986, and with an estimated 3 million illegal aliens in the country, Reagan and Congress decided that something had to be done to cure this problem. The end result was amnesty for all the people who broke our immigration laws in exchange for securing the border so more would not follow. Border security never happened because Lucy moved the football...again.

Honest and Open Democrats?
When Obama was elected President, we got ObamaCare, slammed down our throats by Democrats through the most nefarious means, all the while they smilingly said, "C'mon, Charlie Brown, I swear I will let you kick the ball this time". Oh, how they laughed and laughed.

And now we have an estimated 11 million illegal aliens living among us, and as you may have heard, something needs to be done. We've got a "Gang of Eight" in the Senate -- a "bipartisan" group of four Democrats and four other men, mostly comprised of RINO's and one very confounding Marco Rubio -- telling us that we have to legalize these aliens now to solve this crisis. Some Republicans outside this "Gang" have remained true to Conservative ideals, but they are hopelessly outnumbered.

What is maddening in this current event -- made even more maddening by the uninformed voters in this country -- is the media complicity in aiding and abetting the Democrats, and the willingness to believe that we can be fooled one more time. Rubio has mentioned that legalized status is contingent on a border fence and other security measures, and nodding Democrats assure us that this is the plan, absurdly saying that if the border is not secure in five years, that legal status will be revoked.

Now, Americans' own apathy aside, there is obviously something very attractive about coming to America judging from the influx of illegal aliens and their reluctance to leave. There is also the glaring obviousness that once made legal by Congress, illegal aliens will NEVER be made illegal again, and if you believe that they ever will, I have some primo land for sale.

Couple this with the insistence of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano that our border is "already more secure than it has ever been", and the entire Congressional bill's hinging on securing the border first while giving her the discretionary decision to actually build more fencing or spending one more dime on something she will ultimately deem "an unnecessary use of taxpayers' funds", and I also have a bridge and a sure-fire way to get rich overnight to sell you.

The Democrats have an agenda to advance, and that is flooding America with a demographic presumably friendly to their cause. What this new demographic does not know, however, is that once they vote for the Democrats in perpetuity, they will become the country's new Charlie Brown, once again running up to Lucy and kicking air.

Anyone know how to say, "AAUGH" in Spanish?
