Your right Jason, the latest decision just even the playing field with the Unions that could give unlimited amounts and dominate the list of top donors.
Also, look at election results for referendums. Prop. 187 in California limiting services to Illegal aliens won 59 to 41, got Pete Wilson re-elected and made Fienstien take a tough stance on illegals to win re-election. Referendum 121 in Montana in 2012 won 80% of the vote even as the rest of the election split between R and D by close margins. The referendum supporters also couldn't advertise until late in the cycle due to efforts to keep it off the ballot. These results show that the elite on both sides are against the American people.
First for the second question, we should worry about America because we will be in the same situation soon. The answer to your first question is that Mr. Barone is talking about culture and when immigrants came here they self selected to tend more towards wanting freedom and they adopted the "American" culture which used to be heavily stressed by society and we have many cultural norms that reflect that such as "the Melting Pot" and "E Plurbus Unim". Now, there is a rejection of those norms by the cultural and political elite in the form of "Diversity" which celebrates the breakdown of a common culture and ushers in the fractionalization we see in Europe ("Balkanization" from the Balkan countries). The other aspect that Barone doesn't mention is race which the Liberals say doesn't exist but it is readily apparent in even greater shifts of voting patterns than Barone describes with different cultures. This factor has trumped culture and as mass immigration brings in more people that favor big government, our voting patterns will move in that direction as well.
"But we are also the children of history"..... Then why are we creating the same thing in America by importing scores of millions of people that have a history of Socialism? The government is trying to elect a new people that want bigger government.
Unfortunately RJ, you are correct. Zuckerberg, Addleson, and the Chamber of Commerce have paid them well to sell out the American working class.
Compare Ft Hood with the Norfolk shooting a couple of weeks ago. Regular sailors, who had been maintaining equipment a few hours earlier took down the attacker. Not Police. Not MPs. Just a regular Sailor with a gun. One victim only. In the press conference after the FH attack, the General said that the Base Police responded in 15 minutes. That's a lot of time for a lot of casualties.
That is your opinion SFR. It's probably not shared by many at Ft. Hood.

There is no political will in Washington to cut spending. The only thing that will cut spending is defaulting on the debt or hyperinflation. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

You are so right Andy. It's hard to tell the 2 parties apart anymore. They argue about a few % points on the budget, in-fight about Obama-care, and collude on the single most important issue America faces... becoming a 3rd world country.

Bush also failed on workplace enforcement. The numbers were decent under Clinton and then dropped a lot when Bush took office. The Amnesty pushers are in the pockets of the businesses.
