Rubio Refuses To Rule Out More Amnesty And ‘Gay Marriage’

Marco RubioSen. Marco Rubio, the latest Republican to enter the 2016 race, said on Tuesday, “there may come a point where military action is necessary” in Iran – “because anything is preferable to Iran having a nuclear capability.”

In a conversation with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Rubio also said it should be up to the states, not the federal government or the courts, to define marriage as they see fit; and he advocates immigration reform, including a “probationary period” for the 12 million people who are in this country illegally, after which “they would be allowed to apply for permanent residency.”

Tapper noted that Rubio was among the “gang of eight” U.S. senators who backed an immigration reform bill that passed the Senate in 2013 but later died in the House.

Rubio said he’s learned that such a “massive piece of legislation, especially on something like immigration, just really has no realistic chance of passing.” He now favors a piecemeal approach, beginning with border security.

    Yes, I had serious doubts about him since that “gang of eight” mess. But now he’s “on my list” and it’s not a list of potential candidates for people to vote for.

    This is the closing paragraph of an email I have sent to several members of the Senate Judiciary Committee: [We are totally and completely SICK TO DEATH of hearing “It would be prohibitive ’cost-wise’ to deport them all”. Please, please, please explain to us how it is cheaper to house, clothe, feed, educate, provide medical care, provide legal aid, hold, try, and incarcerate these people, than it would be to ship/fly them home and then SHUT DOWN THE BORDER!!!!]
    Of course, all I got was the standard “thank you for your interest” response with no comment on content.
    As for Iran, Obama and Kerry fully intend for them to get the bomb. I have absolutely no doubt that their real agreement is that Iran will destroy Israel but leave this country alone until the Obamas and Kerrys are out of harms way.
    And “gay marriage”, HA. Back in the 60’s the gays were doing everything they could think of to destroy the institution of marriage because they couldn’t participate. Since they failed to do that, they are now trying to force the rest of the country to allow them to take part in this “anachronistic, out-dated, bourgeois” activity that they once claimed to despise. Rubio and others may be correct in that a person cannot help being gay, but I was taught to hate the sin, not the sinner. Just because you believe you are gay DOES NOT mean you MUST act out that lifestyle. That is where the choice comes in. “Hetero’s” choose to act out that lifestyle; so do gays. Anyone who tells you they have no choice in the matter is lying.

    There’s no way I will ever vote for Rubio now. The more I listen to him, the more he sounds like McCain. Can’t make up his mind which side of the aisle he wants to be on. Flip flop. No way.
