“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” -Cicero

What is worse, an honesty adversary or a dishonest ally?

What is worse, the person who sincerely thinks wrong is right so that’s what he does, or the person who claims to know right from wrong but does what’s wrong nonetheless?

What is worse, the culprit who tells you up front he’s out to get you, or the collaborator who promises to stop the culprit but sides with him against you instead?

The list of Republicans these questions apply to seemingly grows longer by the day. We’re now at the point that we really have one and a half political parties in America. We have the “Government Party” made up of Democrats and about half the Republicans, and then we have the other half of the GOP who actually want to defend individual liberty and American Exceptionalism.

It’s time to coin a new, more descriptive term for those Republicans who find themselves more at home in the Government Party than they do defending the Constitution. “RINO” (aka Republican in Name Only) is obviously not harsh enough, and calling them “gutless” doesn’t sting an already-acknowledged coward. Rather, we need something simpler and more vivid that adequately summarizes just who these two-faced Quislings really are.

That’s why henceforth I will start referring to these enemy collaborators as “undocumented Democrats.”

Since there’s room for only so many statists, charlatans, opportunists, and soul-less bureaucrats in the Democrat Party, these undocumented Democrats have come to the GOP for jobs. They gave you President Romney, President McCain, and the 2012 Republican U.S. Senate Majority. They claim they’re taking political jobs the average American doesn’t want. But maybe that’s because the average American actually has to pay their own bills, so they can’t afford to run against those that don’t.
