    Join the club. And just to think, I used to be a Republican Party official. The Repubs are out of touch with reality and their strategies are laughable.

    They would attempt to change one part of the Constitution not realizing the damage they could do when they open that door? As if some of their other plans don't suck as well. For example:

    Trump is willing to give Dreamers citizenship in exchange for the wall. That's another FOUR MILLION new citizens AFTER we've had an administration saying their parents were criminals, rapists, robbers, murderers, etc. So, we've been winning the elections, but in this last round, many solidly held Republican districts came down to numbers not much larger than the fingers on your hands.

    Let us suppose that Trump could make that deal. Those Dreamers would take the ban on allowing their parents to come here to court. You already got a sample of how much tolerance Americans had when the media whined about the separation of families of the undocumented. So, when the Dreamers file suits in federal courts that bar their parents from entering the United States due to an improper entry, the United States Supreme Court MUST, AS A MATTER OF LAW,, allow those parents in based on challenges to the Eighth Amendment. Four million Dreamers with two parents each just put us back in the same position as before the wall had been put up.

    By then, some liberal piece of scatalogical waste will be in office and the libs may control one or both Houses of Congress. Then they will beat the drums for citizenship for the parents of Dreamers. Within a generation you have 12 MILLION new Hispanic citizens that the Trumpeteers have antagonized for what is already the better part of two decades (4 million Dreamers pluse up to 8 million parents.) And they will have the motivation to dispossess us and that motivation will be as great as the blacks hatred for us based upon the media demonizing all whites over slavery. The new generation will not have any incentive to adopt any of our values and principles.

    Worse, what the Tea Party Republicans are selling is a cheap imitation of what the founders envisioned. It makes no sense; it's self defeating; none of them can defend their positions - not to the left and damn sure not to a constitutionalist. And so they censor people while whining about how often the left acts to silence real discussion.
