Why Don’t Democrats Have to Take a Citizenship Test?

Because if they did, they might learn something.

Isn’t it amazing that the majority of immigrants, especially those that survived of corrupt regimes, are voting Republican?

The majority among the Russian community in the United States are going to vote for Republican John McCain at the U.S. presidential election- according to the Russian Interfax New Agency.

It is no accident that America has a large Russian population. After decades of oppression, when The Wall fell and the Communist Bloc slowly crumbled, many Russians saw their opportunity for escape. Did they go to France or Sweden or some South American tin-pot Dictatorship? No, they came to America.

Ahhh, those utopias bring back such happy memories. In fact, the campaign rhetoric coming out of the Democratic camp probably induces the same level of nausea they felt on finding out the new neighbor is KGB. Remember the old movie, The Red Danube, where “comrades” would rather commit suicide than be returned to their “motherland”, Soviet Russia? After living and breathing freedom, the worker’s paradise had lost its appeal.

It reminds me of Gerard Vanderleun’s Conversations with Paul (read the whole thing!)

“Because in Russia, freedom can go away. Here never. If I vote for best.”

I dearly hope Paul is right.

    Why don’t they?

    They would think up some excuse like

    1. It’s racist,

    2. Unconstitutional

    3. It’s all Bush’s fault.

    You know. The usual Democrat responses.

    Great post. Some of the greatest patriots in our country are immigrants who came here to escape repressive regimes. Russia, Cuba. They’re ALL voting for McCain because they know their freedoms are more important than a promise of a tax cut. And they know our enemies are solidly behind the weak Obama.

    Yes,yes,yes !
    Not to mention when you study for your citizenship test you realise the stuff the founding fathers were made of and the vision they had for this great country.
    I’m an immigrant turned citizen and voted Republican and proud of all of it
