Push on immigration reform risks new GOP split
A push to bring immigration legislation to the House floor, led by an unusual coalition of business executives, prominent conservatives and evangelical leaders, threatens to create another schism in the Republican Party and could have a noticeable effect on campaign contributions in advance of midterm elections.

If the vote on immigration does lead to a split
within the Republican Party that would be the best thing that has ever happened to them:
because it would signal a significant step away
from the American two-party -money-democracy to
a system made of many parties, where opinions
and values really do matter, as opposed to a system where the two leading parties agree on nothing, except that voters are to be lead on and made to
cooperate on the next important economical
issue: Why was the gridlock so bad this year?
Because both parties don´t care about the extant issues enough. The only thing they care for is to
make a great impression, win the next election and to harp on their supposed principles. Let the Republicans actually split as a party: I´d just love to see that.
The far right wing could give themselves a new name
and leave those republicans who actually want to get something done -alone. Within days, legislation
would start moving again. And if the far right
wing should have some earth-shattering, mind-blowing message to awaken the dead, everybody could just turn on their T.V. or p.c. in order to receive
instant enlightenment- Or at least a vivid debate,
by which to sit and eat their conrflakes with blue-
berries or with strawberries, depending on whether you were a Republican or a Democrat.

I wonder if it was like this the first time the rich elitists pushed for slavery.
