The Candidate I Hope the Dems Run in 2016: Luis V. Gutierrez

Let’s See How Much This Differs From The GOP

It’s amazing the distance Leftward of rational thought that committed Progressives are willing to travel to find and recruit their own personal Anti-Hillary. They seem to like the DNC about as much as I and several of our other Front Page Contributors at Redstate like the RNC.

Let’s put a voice out there and crank the amps all the way to 11 to announce in total seriousness that the United States of America commits an act of oppressive evil by daring to enforce a national border and only selectively allow entry into our land.
