The Plot to Create a Permanent Democratic Majority
By Ed Lasky
President Obama and his fellow Democrats are scheming to use immigration and housing policy to fulfill their dream to fundamentally transform America forever.
Over a decade ago, two liberals-John Judis and Rus Teixeira-wrote a book, The Emerging Democratic Majority, that predicted demographic changes would inevitably lead to a Democratic lock on Congress and the White House. Their argument since has been updated by both of them and by others. Back in 2009, Teixeira wrote that “that demographic and geographic “trends should take America down a very different road than has been traveled in the last eight years. A new progressive America is on the rise.”
However, for a man who boasted of his plans to “fundamentally transform America” and change its “trajectory” and has used Martin Luther King’s declaration of the “fierce urgency of now” as a rallying cry, these changes are too glacial. After all, when Treasury Secretary Geithner praised Barack Obama for a legacy of having prevented the second Great Depression (sycophancy works with Obama) Obama replied “That’s not enough for me”. For a man declared to something akin to a God, what greater legacy can there be then changing the demographics of America? His legacy will last long after he left the office. Demography is destiny.
