After the great news about the Cantor primary, I came across this instantly obsolete WSJ story “Money Woes Make Immigration a No-Show in GOP Primaries” predicting Lindsay Graham and Eric Cantor victories based on fundraising advantage. Looks like author Reid J. Epstein beat his chest a bit prematurely.
I plan to congratulate him (firstname.lastname@example.org) on this amazing piece of prophecy.
For a while now I’ve believed that Republicans are facing an existential threat, based on immigration and the corollary wage depressed/government dependent demographic. I’m hopeful that this marks the beginning of an awakening to this historical crossroads facing the GOP.
I’m often asked if being an Americans First Democrat isn’t a contradiction in terms. I reply it might be if there were Americans First Republicans. Well, maybe here with Dave Brat we have one.
