“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.
Some claim these undocumented Democrats are a necessary component of our free enterprise system, but in reality they’re a drain on the system. It costs much more to import these undocumented Democrats, and all the unconstitutional government they vote for, than they actually pay in.
These undocumented Democrats act as if they have a claim on our money and property, and that if they are allowed to exist in Washington long enough, it means they ought to be allowed to live there on our dime permanently. They play the victim card if you try to hold them accountable for their crimes. They have an entire lobby in the media that seeks to protect them from accountability.
These undocumented Democrats are the least educated among us when it comes to common sense, basic reality, and our founding principles. In fact, these undocumented Democrats don’t hold our founding principles in high esteem, but rather work with normalized Democrats to undermine them all the time.
Our Founding Fathers would’ve considered such treacherous acts an invasion, but in our more enlightened day and age they’re called “reasonable” or “evolving” or “trustworthy.” The same elites calling our framers that also describe them as “conservatives” or “right-wingers” so they can redefine what it means to be a citizen patriot.
These undocumented Democrats always lecture the conservative base about the need to add more diversity to the Republican Party, but when groups like the Tea Party promote diversity in the party they are opposed by undocumented Democrats. Undocumented Democrats say we can’t focus on issues like life or marriage because elections are only about jobs and economy. Yet when someone who has proven to be a job creator challenges the Government Party that is killing jobs, these undocumented Democrats close ranks to protect one of their own.
To these undocumented Democrats, if you believe in liberty, limited government, rule of law, and Judeo-Christian morality – and expect the so-called “opposition party” to act accordingly when it says it does as well – then you are the bad guy.
For example, Senator Tom Coburn says if you expect him to honor his oath of office to do whatever he can to stop the budget-crushing (family and federal) and anti-Constitutional Obamacare, you’re “destroying the Republican Party.” Because apparently Senator Coburn’s oath of office was to protect the self-interests of the Republican Party, not uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.
Congressman Tom Cole says he’d rather permit the implementation of Obamacare, arguably the biggest infringement on religious liberty and promotion of child killing in American history, rather than “risk the crown jewel” of GOP control of the House of Representatives. Because apparently it’s more important to control a body less popular than root canals and cockroaches than it is to preserve the last, best hope for freedom in human history.
Now, let’s make sure not to trivialize what we’re talking about here. Nobody’s perfect, therefore even the best of Republicans have their blind spots. We’re looking for consistency here, both good and bad, to have the right perspective in evaluating friends and enemies. Some undocumented Democrats are easy to spot, but others “live in the shadows.” Here are four ways to identity if your Republican is really an undocumented Democrat occupying your party illegally:
Since these undocumented Democrats are coming here for a job, the only way to be rid of them is to remove their incentive for coming here in the first place. That means we need to begin replacing all of them in primaries, and then refuse to incentivize them in the general election with what amounts to amnesty. Even if you make them go to the back of the line for your vote, you’re still rewarding them with the object of their crime.
You’re not voting for “the lesser of two evils.” A bad Republican is not better than a good Democrat, but rather we’ve learned they’re one in the same. Your bad Republican is really an undocumented Democrat. If you amnesty him with the power of incumbency, it will be even tougher to replace him with a true citizen patriot later on (see the current Republican “leadership” team in the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate for examples). Once amnestied, it takes extraordinary circumstances to deport an undocumented Democrat.
Amnesty these undocumented Democrats now and you’ll have to amnesty even more undocumented Democrats later. Infiltrators breed infiltrators. These undocumented Democrats are a fertile bunch.
We’re still paying for the Reagan Amnesty of the Bush family (and their acolytes like Karl Rove) back in the 1980s.
