Will Dems Save or Destroy America?

My friend Jimbo, elated over the Democratic victory, views it at worst "as minimizing (as much as possible) the damage of Bush´s last 2 years." I certainly sign on to the notion that Bush needs checking, but Bush's most dangerous obsession, re-making the American people via south-of-the-border immigration, was being checked by the Republican House. Now they're gone. Will the Democrats take Bush up on his offer at yesterday's news conference? Pelosi might not want to handle this hot potato - we shall see.

I expect to see Hagel-Martinez resurrected and passed in the first few months, long enough to allow voters to forget about it by November 2008.

Short-term perils notwithstanding, the Democrats would be fools not to pass it, since it would translate into job security for them and their majority.

Derek's right. This will likely happen, and fast, and will be as forgotten as the '86 amnesty by the next presidential race, when the Repubs are likely to offer McCain, every bit the open borders/boundless war enthusiast that Bush was.
I find myself furtively wondering, "how bad could Hillary be?"

It is up to the Midwest now.

Lots of new Midwest D's in the rust belt. They need to be pushed to hold the line with the R's.

It won't be easy, but I think Nancy will put this off for the first six months. It is not a great issue to get started with.

Frankly, I am just shocked some of the R's that were tossed from the house.

For example, in AZ all the anti-immigration prop's passed, but both JD Hayworth and Randy Graf lost. Bizarre.

Having familiarized myself with how the global economy works, I hate to say it but i think its inevitable at this point that we will be admitting tens of millions of Third World peasants into the country in the decades ahead.

The fact is, it isn't just manufacturing and so called back-office jobs that are increasingly in direct competition with workers in Third World population giants. Our whole economy is in competition with the likes of India and China for capital. And capital increasingly flows to those countries with the lowest wage structure. As long as hospital orderlies and roofers in the developing world make pennies on the dollar, there is going to be major downward pressure exerted on wages in this country (note the lack of urgency among both political parties for instituting a meaningful minimum wage increase).

American born workers simply aren't going to work for slave wages (unless they wind up in the fast growing prison industrial complex, anyway. But they can't throw half the country in prison). Thus, the only people who are going to be willing to do the hourly wage jobs of the future will be desperate Third World immigrants.

So say hello to the Beaner Nation.

Of course, Tom is only half right. Only the FIRST generation of third world laborers will want to do the slave wage like jobs that natives won't do. Since we are dealing with human beings rather than widgets, we can expect them to have kids. Then their kids will be natives too who don't want to do those jobs, but they will also be stuck as a third world underclass in this country. Look at the North Africans of France and the Turks of Germany and you look into the future.

You are absolutely right, Polycarp. But our political leaders have bought into the same myopic thinking that Corporate America does, who can't look beyond the next fiscal quarter's profit earnings. Sure, we will end up with a political ruling class of Che Guevarra t-shirt wearing, wealth redistributionists and a vast crime-ridden, welfare dependent underclass a generation down the road.

However, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce obviously regards transforming America into a nation of desperate wage slaves to be of the utmost importance to their political agenda. And you know the business establishment had a major hand in steering the democrats to victory on Tuesday.

Yes, you guys have hit on the exact problem. Like I wrote a few months back: "I like immigrants...all the Latino immigrants I encounter - the guy who makes my sandwich at lunch, the guys who cut grass in the neighborhood, who paint houses, clean homes and offices - lovely, pleasant people all. It's too bad their grandchildren are going to want to cut our throats when they're still making sandwiches, cutting grass, painting houses, cleaning offices..."

The solution - a guest worker program with mandatory spaying and neutering.

It's possible they wanted to punish the Republicans but still wanted to cut down on immigration. Plenty of Democrats think the immigration thing's gone too far, though you'd never know that from talking to party elites.
