Is the USA about to be hijacked altogether?

I've written before about my opposition to Obamacare, on constitutional, philosophical and moral grounds. However, contributor Sic Ibid on the W.C. Varones blog has an extremely worrying perspective on what it may portend. I think the article is so important that I'm cross-posting it in full. Bold and italic print are the author's emphasis.

Think You'll Get Revenge in November? Think Again.

Think again. I think we're watching "Checkmate" in action. Why? Word is that Immigration "Reform" is the Obama Administration's next goal,and that they intend on granting Amnesty to the illegals living here now. Estimates put that number at about 15-30 million people. Assuming 90% of them would instantly become life-long loyal Democrat voters (And why wouldn't they? They've just been given US citizenship and US Health Care by a Democrat), any massive "backlash" against the Democrats that appears to be developing right now will really only end up likely being more than countered by the massive increase in the total number of loyal Democrat voters that Amnesty will provide.

I hope I'm wrong. Of course, I do not know if Amnesty would mean they could instantly register to vote for the November 2010 elections (2012 almost certainly), or if some other steps would be required by the legislation. But to me, it looks like this is the reason that the Democrats feel absolutely no need to listen to the wishes of the majority of the electorate right now. Simply put; they are not legislating for this current electorate. They are legislating for the electorate-to-come, the one that will exist after Amnesty is granted to 15-30 million new Democrat voters. It's a trump card. Essentially, this means that 2008 could end up being the last major election that our current electorate (as demographically constituted today) will ever have participated in. Thus, they know that they might never have to answer to this current electorate again. Keep in mind that Obama's victory over McCain was a clear and decisive one. He won 52% to 46%. But the margin was still less than 10 million total votes (69.5 to 59.9 million). With 15-30 million new loyal Democrat voters, it's quite possible that we won't see a GOP majority or President for a very long time, despite the current, wide-spread, and growing surge/anger against the Democrats.

This is very deliberate. And the sequence of Obama's major Agenda items was designed to bring this mega-majority about. The Stimulus bill had to be first, because it feathers the financial bed for Democrats' re-election campaigns. Then Health Care had to be next, because if they granted Amnesty first, then the Health Care proposal would appear much more expensive than the bill makes it appear right now (without the 15-30 million new citizens). By the way, (Union) Card-Check, and Cap and Trade are the other 2 pillars of their plan for cementing lasting Democrat Party majorities and dominance.

See the original article for embedded links providing further information.

If Sic Ibid is correct, we're in for the fight of our lives. This monstrosity has to be stopped. If it's allowed to proceed, the Republic as we know it is dead. All that will be left to us is to bury its mortal remains . . . and I, for one, am simply not prepared to let it die, or bury it, without a fight (literally, if necessary).

Time to ratchet up the pressure, folks.

Sadly, I agree with this assessment and it's why I'm so pessimistic about the future. I've been talking about it on my blog since Monday.

When amnesty is passed, again against the wished of the people, that will constitute a clear breach of The Constitution in that no elections that are held after that fact can be considered to be legitimate.

This can only end in violence. Either with a citizen’s revolt now or full societal meltdown when in the very near future the bill comes due and there's no money left pay it (Doing to ourselves what we had done to the USSR... Out spent ourselves).

Either way, we've seen the end of the USA as we knew it. What comes of it now is anyone’s guess and depends on how seriously people are willing to bleed right now to set things right.

As an aside, I think people are plenty willing to fight (and I do mean with violence), but with out leadership to call them to arms, I don’t see it happening.

I've got to disagree with you on this one. I don't think the Administration is working on any "master plan". Immigration policy has been a big topic for centuries, so discussion of immigration reform now doesn't portend anything.

Given our current government, do you really think they can pass a major, controversial bill and have it take effect before November elections? Even with the Health Care Bill, most of its provisions don't take effect until 2014!

A path to citizenship for illegal residents in this country makes good sense. In fact, the "Amnesty" in a bill that's currently being looked at requires that the applicant admit to the crime of illegally entering the country, speak English, pay fines and back taxes, and pass a background check. Even if every illegal resident in the country attempted to achieve citizenship, it would take years to process the applications and many would not be accepted. Realistically, the number of illegal residents granted citizenship in the next decade would likely be under 1 million - a drop in the bucket.

If we can get a million hard-working new citizens contributing to our economy, I really don't care how long they lived here illegally before now.

Even if immigration reform was as horrible as you make it out to be, the Republicans are perfectly capable of stalling it until the November elections.

Interesting thoughts. But if we assume most of the illegals are Hispanic and further assume they are Catholic, how would the Democrats stance on abortion sit with them? To assume they all would cozie up to the Democrats might not happen...

If this does happen, Immigration had better pny up refunds and apologies to all of the immigrants who have already paid their stupidly high fees and jumped through their legal hoops, only to be slapped in the face by an amnesty for those who didn't make any effort.

You do realize that your ancestors were immigrants don't you?
