A Stacked Deck

I hardly thought it possible, but Paul Goldman and Mark J Rozell at Politico have uncovered yet another way in which the 14th Amendment is destroying America. History repeating again as farce, that worst of all Amendments has reenacted the Three Fifths Compromise in reverse: allowing illegal immigrants to count in apportioning seats in the House and Electoral College. These states, being leftist, will allow in more illegals and gain even more illicit power allowing them to finalize their election of a new American people.

It should be clear by now that the game is rigged. You cannot win a game against someone willing to cheat at every turn. With each move, they gain in the margins, until their advantage is overwhelming. What do you do when you can no longer win the game? The answer, of course, is to stop playing.

Society is a game, a series of ritualized interactions. But games and rituals can changed, their seeming permanence only lasting as long as their rules work for the players. Just how long do you think Americans will play a losing hand?
