When a governing elite begins to lose the support of an electorate, one solution that can be applied is to fire the poorly performing voters and replace them. If that can’t be done, then another possible solution can be to hire scab voters to swell the roles and vote as the elites wish. The Washington Free Beacon reports that the House is planning to vote on an immigration amnesty bill that would put around 2.5 million illegal immigrants (read, potential registered Democrats) on the path to citizenship by giving them green cards. The bill has essentially no chance of passing in the Senate, and if it did, it certainly couldn’t be passed over a presidential veto. The vote is another virtue-signaling waste of time by a House that has accomplished next to nothing.
Even if the rest of these illegal immigrants who aren’t already voting in our elections could be added to the roles, if might not change the end results of our elections. You see, they’re concentrated in blue districts in blue states. While their votes might insure great margins of victory for Democrats in local and congressional elections, they unlikely to tip the red state/blue state balance in the Electoral College.
Now, I’m not complaining about the House wasting time. Given the present makeup of the House of Representatives, the country is better off with them doing nothing.
