The Suicide of a Nation and a Party

by Brad Nelson   4/15/14

Mr. Kung brought this article to my attention this morning. If we didn’t already live in this country, we might enjoy the Schadenfreude of watching the GOP commit suicide. Here’s a great truth expressed in the article at The Daily Caller: Report: Immigration is making the US blue:

“Latinos in California appear to vote overwhelming Democratic even when Republican Latino candidates are on the ballot opposing Anglo Democrats…”

It’s hilarious (and sad) that dumb-asses such as Marco Rubio don’t get this. Or maybe he does and doesn’t care. But to see many of the top leaders of the Republican Party push for amnesty (aka “comprehensive immigration reform”) is truly bizarre. For an entire political party to put a gun to its head and pull the trigger is amazing to watch. Their disregard for their own citizens and maintaining the integrity of our nation is just assumed now.

This weak, milquetoast obsequiousness of the GOP jibes with my theory of the Stockholm Syndrome being relevant to the GOP’s politics and outlook. The Left owns these boys like political terrorists and the GOP in return acts like compliant hostages. We see this same rot at National Review. This general ethos was behind the ousting of Steyn. These people need to grow some balls.

The Democrat Party is looting this nation and no one — including the GOP — seems to care. It is true we are a “nation of immigrants” but we’re not a nation built upon people illegally flooding over the border to become enclaves of unassimilated third-worlders who then mooch off the rest of us via the welfare system.

About Brad Nelson

I like books, nature, politics, old movies, Ronald Reagan (you get sort of a three-fer with that one), and the founding ideals of this country. We are the Shining City on the Hill — or ought to be. However, our land has been poisoned by Utopian aspirations and feel-good bromides. Both have replaced wisdom and facts.

    There are 3 basic problems. Large donors like massive immigration (legal or illegal, it makes no difference to them) because increasing the supply of labor in a stagnant economy lowers the cost of labor. Hispanic-oriented Republicans want to believe that they can win Hispanic votes (and they can do better than Romney, though not enough to make up for millions of additional mostly-Democratic voters), and since this is an emotional view it isn’t subject to contrary evidence. Finally, Beltway Bandits want to “stand tall in Georgetown” (as Allen Drury put in Capable of Honor), and this means supporting amnesty while only pretending to support enforcement (and you get similar reactions in New York, Los Angeles, and some other locales).

      So who is to safeguard the law and the integrity of our nation? Didn’t at least the politicians take an oath of office?

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Unf9rtunately, politicians who keep their word have always been scarce on the ground. Democrats who do so are non-existent (and Slick Barry started both of his terms by perjuring himself, since he never intended to obey his oath of office).

    My first five pieces to ST were on this subject. The links are:

    This is the most important immediate political problem which must be addressed. As I and others have made clear, once amnesty is granted, the USA as we know it is finished and gone. This must be stopped at all costs.


    I have nothing to add to what all of you have said here, and with which I agree completely, except to point out that this is another instance of the Establishment/Conservative division within the GOP. This split is the most significant fact of contemporary American politics, that is, it is the most significant factor affecting whether the totalitarianism of the Democratic Party can be effectively fought or not.
