Obama Means to Import Voting Ranks

If Republicans cannot win the Senate this November, says columnist Charles Krauthammer, then "maybe the party ought to look for another country."
 
Democrats are busy redrawing a new country in the center-right United States, where for decades polls have consistently found that self-described conservatives outnumber liberals by 40 percent to 20.  
 
To win, President Barack Obama and his progressive comrades are using what one of the pioneers of their political party created two centuries ago.
 
In 1812, the Democratic-Republican Governor of Massachusetts Elbridge Gerry redrew the lines of congressional districts in his state. The Boston Gazette noticed that the odd new shape of one district resembled a salamander, so they nicknamed his re-mapping a Gerrymander.
 
Gov. Gerry understood how to take a region where, e.g., Republicans and Democrats were equal in number, then have the ruling state party redraw lines carving the region into three congressional districts — one drawn to include most Republicans, the other two carefully shaped to create reliable majorities of Democrats.
 
Such Gerrymandering creates a few extremely safe congressional districts for one party, but many more districts that will usually elect politicians of the other party.
 
During President Richard Nixon's era, Democrats on average won, per precinct, only a single vote more than Republicans in congressional elections — but Gerrymandering for decades gave Democrats roughly a 44-seat majority in the House of Representatives. Yet in 1972 voters repudiated Progressive George McGovern to re-elect Mr. Nixon in 49 of 50 states.
 
Today the Gerrymandering process is so refined that, as one Texas judge said, voters no longer choose their congressman. Instead the incumbent congressman has the boundaries of his district drawn to include or exclude individual homes based on the party registration of who lives there. Congressmen now literally choose their voters.
 
President Obama is the new Elbridge Gerry. 
 
In the old-fashioned Gerrymander, state politicians in smoke-filled rooms left voters where they were, but redrew lines on a reapportionment map every 10 years to move voters into whatever reshaped congressional districts gave advantage to the ruling party.
 
In today's new-fashioned Gerrymander — which I call an Obamanander (or an Obamander) — national borders of the center-right United States are de facto expanded so that millions of poorly educated, needy people can be moved from what used to be foreign nations of Mexico and Central America into the United States.
 
Progressives have always been frustrated that America lacked an essential ingredient of Marxian class warfare — a proletariat of poor working-class people who have "nothing to lose but their chains." In America, working people generally do not hate or want to overthrow the rich; they want to join them, and historically have had the social mobility to become successful themselves.
 
A European-style proletariat has never taken root in American soil, so President Obama is importing one to be his shock troops.
 
His apparent aim is to create voters that for generations will be alienated from American culture, dependent on government handouts, and easily recruited for class warfare.
 
In the long run, this Democratic attempt to fundamentally transform America will fail. Hispanics typically have deep moral, religious, and family values; oppose abortion; and have a strong work ethic. Within three generations, most Latinos will be Republicans, with whom they share far more values than with Democrats. 
 
As Democrats hurry Hispanics into the United States, and toward legal status and voting, Latinos should note that Obama is betraying the job prospects of African-Americans who elected him. African-Americans should acknowledge Obama's betrayal, too.
 
No one should trust a president who betrays honest democracy, stealing our government by using Obamananders, and who makes Latino immigrants feel at home by ruling his transformed America like a Central American banana republic.
