Democracy <noun> has many meanings, some good, some bad. Our Founding Fathers despised the word and for what it stood for and did not mention it once in either The Declaration of Independence or in the Constitution of the United States. Instead, the chose to build the framework of our nation upon the principles of a Republic, a Constitutional Republic, a nation of laws. Aside from the darker meanings of the word democracy which has included references to mob rule, as in lynch mobs, democracy has come to be known as a two party political system. Leaving out the fringe third-party groups for the moment, that leaves us with Republicans and Democrats. And our democratically <adverb> elected government.
Thanks to the unending efforts of the Democrats, the party that derived its name from the word democracy, America will soon become a single party system just as soon as the Democrats push through their immigration reforms and legalize several tens of millions of grateful illegal immigrant workers who already crowd our shores and utilize our welfare programs, our over-taxed public schools and our medical system.
This will soon be true because according to a recent Pew Research Center survey, while 43% of American voters identify themselves with the Republican Party, 48% identify themselves with the Democrats. Add to the mix a large number of newly minted voters who are expected to show enormous gratitude to the party that grants them citizenship and the percentages of voters will be spread much further apart. Should amnesty and immigration reform become law, it is estimated that the legislative branch of government will become solidly Democrat for many decades to come. And just as WalMart uses its enormous size and clout to stifle its local competition so will the Democrats effectively dominate most state and local elections.
In our nation's capitol the push for immigration reform has turned into a Zombie-like pandemic with several not so conservative Republicans believing that if they don't support amnesty it will make those presently illegal immigrants hostile toward the Republican Party for not giving them what they want.

Lest you mistakenly thought that Amnesty had faded away, no it hasn’t. Marxists and illegal aliens across the US are still pushing it — hard. With the help of Progressives on both sides of the Aisle, from Nancy Pelosi on the Left to Paul Ryan on the Right:
Thousands of supporters of an immigration overhaul held rallies on Saturday at more than 150 sites in 40 states, trying to pressure Congress, despite the partisan turmoil in Washington, to focus on passing a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants here illegally.
Hoping to display the wide reach of their movement, advocates held larger rallies in immigrant strongholds like Los Angeles, San Diego and Boston, with smaller demonstrations in places where immigrant groups have grown recently, including Atlanta; Rogers, Ark.; and Yakima, Wash. Organizers described the events, and a large rally they have planned for Tuesday on the National Mall in Washington, as their major show of force this year.
On what they called a “National Day of Immigrant Dignity and Respect,” supporters said more than 50,000 people had turned out nationwide. But the demonstrations came when few lawmakers on Capitol Hill were thinking about immigration, with the federal government shut down and the House of Representatives locked in a feud with President Obama and Democrats over health care and debt funding.
Even while advocates have built up their strength — with a broad coalition of business, labor, religious and law enforcement groups calling for a comprehensive bill — they fear that momentum is slipping away for Congress to act this year.
