Well, the executive amnesty happened (sort of) and the only reactions I’ve seen to it so far are a lot of rhetoric and some lawsuits. In other words, status quo opposition to the overreach. Since no few Republicans wanted to see an amnesty anyway, a good chunk of it is likely fake opposition, theater put on for the benefit of the rubes that thought electing them this time would be any more effective than all the others.
There is one small consideration to put out there before this is said and done. Amnesty is a huge line to cross. If and most likely when the Republicans blow it or betray us again, how many other people are going to start thinking outside the box to change the status quo? Granted, things like my vote against Rove ally Gillespie to sort all my enemies on the other side is a minority opinion at this point in time, but how long will it stay that way?
It’s something the go along to get along sorts should consider. Nothing says our resistance has to stop at the primaries, or that our cooperation is obligatory. Some few of us know that now. What happens when enough of us do?
