    RedState

    President Obama isn't the only one deceiving you. A very different group is playing America on immigration:

    You Are Being Played

    By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | November 21st, 2014 at 04:30 AM | 82

    I oppose comprehensive immigration reform. I think Congress always fails as comprehensive legislation. But, long time readers know I am squishier on the immigration issue than many RedStaters. There are portions of what the President proposed last night that I support in principle and, frankly, was surprised by how mild some of the actions were, given the run up to the announcement.
    But whatever I think of those things the President proposed, it is irrelevant because I believe the President has no power to do what he has done. He himself agreed back in 2011. The President has taken actions that require Congressional approval. His advisors say Congress had their chance and did not act. That is, essentially, an affirmative act of Congress. By not acting, the President himself cannot act alone. He is not a dictator.
    Here, though, is where you are being played. There are enough Republicans in Congress who in private support what the President did that they will go through elaborate kabuki theater to keep you convinced they’re going to fight him, when in reality the Republicans are going to fund the President’s plan.
    You are being played.
    Republicans are pushing forward with a plan to fund the government. They claim they will then return next year and defund the President’s plan. But doing so would be subject to a Presidential veto. The GOP does not have the votes to override that veto. In effect, they’ll be funding the President’s plan while setting themselves up to claim they oppose it.
    The GOP does not oppose the President’s plan. Hell, much of the GOP, including most of its Senate leadership, has previously voted for what the President did. And these same Republicans have attacked their own base as racists and bigots for opposing comprehensive immigration reform.
    You are being played. The GOP wants this.
    And if you don’t believe it, look at what they’ve done.
    They ran to the nearest camera, declared this a constitutional crisis and a violation of the separation of powers, then they hopped a flight back to their home states.
    If the GOP really thought this were a constitutional crisis, they would act like it. They would be willing to shut it all down to preserve the integrity of the constitutional system.
    But they have no intention of doing that. Why? Because you are being played. And it is the GOP playing you.

    This is the scariest part of all of this. Most in the Senate aren't really opposed to obama, GOP AND Dem! Since they reside in the back pockets of the big businesses who want more immigrants (illegal and legal) to replace those expensive Americans in jobs so they can make more money, which then in turn keeps those senators' campaigns funded and them in office! It's a vicious circle that will be very difficult to break because we who care don't have the deep pockets. So how do we fight it? Ala 1776? Hmmm?

    You got that Right, our Politicians are Corporate owned. Thanks to the Cheap labor and Cheap wages they just imported over the border. Welcome to the land of the $10.00 wage and going down, along with no healthcare, no pensions, no pursuit of life and liberty for all..... Slave State America home of the Crony Capitalists and bought and paid for political hacks starting from the top and ending at the bottom.... All this brought to you both the Democ-rats, Rebug-nants and who ever else they recruit... Welcome one and welcome all...
