Rush is also opposed to a new multi-million-voter block from illegal immigrants. Wanna give’em that? And what if Reid/O want Peurto Rico to be a state at the same time? You think the US is in trobule now, a major constituency shift would be concrete over the coffin.
“...a new multi-million-voter block from illegal immigrants. Wanna giveem that? And what if Reid/O want Peurto Rico to be a state at the same time?”
You are exactly right. If you give amnesty to millions of dem voters, in future elections you will have to not only retain your past vote count but also add sufficient numbers of new voters to overcome the new dem voters generated by amnesty. Every election since the late 80s has shown just how difficult if not impossible that is currently. What possible new policies or gifts does the GOP think it has to overcome that? It would be an essentially permanent shift to a one-party political system. There is a slim chance the GOP can compete in the current demographic situation but with amnesty, that chance would be erased, entirely, forever, and irretrievably. Any Repub considering amnesty should consider that, whatever the possible benefits (I think those are imaginary), the downside risk is catastrophic in magnitude.
