This was sent to me by a friend in Atlanta. I didn't write it but I wish I had. I have corrected a few typos but not otherwise changed his thoughts.

The dictionary definition of 'disenfranchisement' is:
to deprive of right, especially voting
to deprive a person or organization of a privilege, immunity, or legal right, especially the right to vote.

In that definition of disenfranchisement, there is a discussion of the outright removal of a person's right to vote. There is also a different form of disenfranchisement: Dilution of the vote.

This 'disenfranchisement by dilution' can occur in many ways. A political party can commit voter fraud, or it can suppress organizational efforts of opposing parties, or -- as is being attempted now, with the Illegal Immigrant Amnesty Bill -- the voter base can be diluted with foreign nationals that share the views of that party. The opposing party finds itself in a permanent minority status, as their votes become so watered down as to become meaningless. It would get to the point that it would be political homeopathy.

There is some discussion that the Elite Ruling-class Republicans don't care if they are a permanent minority; that they would in fact prefer it. Those who vote in the Ruling Elite's desires would get personal rewards -- crumbs, thrown from the table, as the Democrats feasted on the corpse of America. It is past time for those who would consider such a vote to put the nation over their own personal benefit. They need to think of the Founding Fathers who risked life and personal fortunes to establish a nation, under God, that embraced personal freedom.

The Democrats do not value personal freedom, at all, unless it is to kill the unborn. On every other topic, they favor a rigid, overbearing, controlling government presence. When it comes to firearms possession, the ability to conduct business unmolested by a rapacious government, or even how one lives their life (with their constant 'environmental' attempts to prevent us from using energy or having access to technology, or to own one's own property or money, the Democrats consistently favor the Communist and Socialist approach.

Those who would gain from Illegal Alien Amnesty tend to come from countries, such as Mexico, where the government is heavy and oppressive -- and largely socialistic. To turn the nation over to these foreign invaders, in the form of legalizing millions of illegal interlopers, is an utterly heinous and traitorous act. It disenfranchises current Americans.

We need to fight this disenfranchisement with every fiber in our being. We need to appeal to the fence-sitters, reminding them that current Americans would be disenfranchised. To entertain ANY border-related bill right now, even one that looks wonderful from our perspective, would invite the worst elements of the Senate bill to be included.

And that, my friends, would be the final coup-de-grace that would kill America once and for all.

***
Americans are by and large a tolerant group but they can only take so much abuse by their government. If we are to have a second Civil War, I do not think it will begin like the first one. There will be no secession by the states. Rather, I think it will begin like the American Revolution with the government trying to disarm the people as the British tried to do in Massachusetts in 1775. If that happens all bets are off.

If you don't like it, don't read. If you think something I have posted is incorrect or miss-reasoned, please point it out with your own line of reasoning.

Unlike some on this board, I can disagree without being disagreeable.

It's telling how Republican conservatives find "the sky is falling" in nearly every circumstance. They are just a bunch of scared little people with no idea how to lead.
