The realization I came to in my late 20's, I'm 36 now, is Illiberals/ Democrats DON'T or WILL NOT consider the endgame or 'success' of such gambits. We needn't look any further than the 'Progressive' bastion of the West & SouthWest USAto see the results of unchecked immigration. AZ, CA and NV rank 46th-48th nationally in regards to their national ranking via high school proficiency exams. CA used to be ranked in the low-mid 20's nationally in the late 80's-early 90's. Az and NV ~ the same as well. As of '07 CA's public education system is more than 50% Latino and more than 50% of CA's teenager's are Latino, respectfully. The correlation is obvious. And yet, Obama via illegal means is attempting to 'reward' these people? Idiots..

Correlation is not causation. Video games also became popular in the 80's and 90's. Do you think that MIGHT have had an effect on students?

And guns kill people, too. Blame the video game and not the parents who don't set limits. I don't totally agree with the op about latinos bringing the schools down. I think it has more to do with crummy teachers who are not evaluated on performance, and disengaged parents who place 100% of the education burden on the schools.

The endgame is wealth and power for the political leaders and and control of the masses. That is the endgame and they have had their eye on it for over 100 years. The left's "gambits" have nothing to do with their stated purpose on paper. They are measures designed to break down family, church, and community; put the government in control of industry; and create public dependence on government. When people rely on government to tell the where to live, what to eat, what to know, the leadership can live in the lap of luxury and have an entire country of servants at their beck and call.

Nice fantasy. But how does breaking down the family, church, and community help make them more wealthy. I don't get it, maybe you can explain this mechanism.

Strong families, churches and communities create people who can solve problems on their own. By destroying these things, government can step in as the only one to turn to in a time of crisis or need. That makes those with political power all the more powerful.
As disturbing as was President Obama's lawless usurpation of constitutional authority in circumventing the DREAM Act to grant backdoor amnesty, this type of overreach is nothing new for him.

He has frequently complained about how democracy and the Constitution are "messy" and do not permit him to exercise the authority of a Chinese president. But he nevertheless warned us that he would be pushing forward with his agenda through executive orders and administrative actions "on a wide range of fronts."

But he has outdone himself this time, even going beyond limitations he freely recognized not long ago, when he complained that he didn't...
