Many reasons why we don’t trust Washington

I do not trust those in Washington, whether they are Democrats or Republicans. And I believe the majority of Americans feel the same.

Regardless of which party is in power, they do not do what they say they will do. The best example is border security, which both parties have claimed to be in favor of. I’m convinced that neither is serious.

The Democrats want an unending stream of illegal aliens (call them what they are ... not “undocumented” anything), because they will always vote Democrat. Hispanics know they can count on Democrats to provide an unending stream of welfare benefits and “vote their pocketbooks.”

The Republicans foolishly believe that by supporting the amnesty bill presented by the Gang of Eight, they’ll be kept “in the game” with Hispanic voters. No, Hispanics will continue to vote for Democrats. If Mitt Romney had gotten 70 percent of the Hispanic vote — something no Republican has EVER gotten — he would still have lost.

Further, the Republicans, like the RINOs (Republican in Name Only) Lindsey Graham and John McCain, have been convinced by advisors that this is the only route they may take to keep from being an irrelevant party. Also, moneyed supporters of the Republicans WANT an unending supply of illegal aliens, so that they have cheap labor (labor that will work for less and won’t have to be covered by ObamaCare). Sadly, big business is now being co-opted by big government, which will reward their support by awarding them dollars from citizens’ taxes (and money borrowed from China and freshly printed by the U.S. Mint).

To appropriate a phrase by the late William F. Buckley, Jr., I would rather be governed by the first 100 names in the Marietta phone directory than by the 100 U.S. Senators. The local 100 wouldn’t know what they’re doing, but at least it would take them a period of time to figure out how to appropriate money from United States citizens. The 100 in Washington now have the misuse of our taxes down to a science.

D.A. - er, I mean Don - "Hispanics know they can count on Democrats to provide an unending stream of welfare benefits and 'vote their pocketbooks.'”

Your prejudice and ill-informed opinion explain why more than 70% of Latinos and Hispanics went for Obama.

Like D.A., your ignorance only serves to help our team, so keep it up!

Interesting that you read my letter.

I, on the other hand, avoid your column like the plague.

Nice piece, Don. You hit the mark dead center. Thanks for having the courage to speak the truth.

I agree with you that both parties are contemptible, except that Republicans actually don't care about the Hispanic votes as much as they do about caving into the demands of businesses, Chamber of Commerce, developers and other assorted traitors.

Isakson and Chambliss voted no simply because they knew the Senate already had the needed votes; however, they did vote to move the bill forward for debate.

We need to replace them all.
