I understand that being a repulican candidate in blue Oregon means that you have to be pragmatic on some of the issues. It doesn't mean you have to support amnesty or taxpayer funded goodies for illegal aliens.
Listening to Allen Alley on the Lars Larson show today brought back horrifying memories of Jason Atkinson four years ago. (Alley must not have heard it, maybe he's like Mannix: "not a regular listener")
A majority of Oregonians are dumb enough to think that if only we can surrender enough of our freedom and money to goverment we can save the planet from global warming. I get that. A serious candidate can't say "it's mother nature stupid" and get elected here.
But I can't vote for a primary candidate who also wants to help illegal aliens "earn" citizenship because certain industries enjoy the cheap criminal labor.
Oregonians do not support giving welfare, housing and non-emergency medical care to criminals aliens who shouldn't even be here. Oregonians are tired of having to compete with an underground labor force. Oregonians are tired of pressing 1 for English and paying state employees to coddle criminals.
And Daniel is tired of Republican candidates who don't get that.
