Defining representative government in terms of Left, Right, Democrat, Republic and so on illustrates just how far afield we’ve come from the founding principal of limited government. This is why Jefferson intuitively understood both the risks of self-government and the mechanisms of reformation;
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrant.”
The President understands quite well the core-value of social-tensions for the express purpose of creating advantage. Case in point: Before joining the Obama Administration, Cecilia Munoz served as Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy, and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the nation’s largest Latino civil rights organization. She has been key in orchestrating the Administrations use of tension-based advocacy and it should, by now, be quite obvious to even the casual observer.
Why else would the President openly violate existing immigration law if he weren’t completely confident that Congress would be dead-locked on the position for fear of risking being labeled a racist. Ignoring the fact that any position contrary to the National Ideals, Law and Constitutional preeminence is itself an act of defiance to their oaths of office. Unfortunately for the American people ignorance has become far too fashionable.
