Rigging Elections

Rigging Elections, by Steve Sailer. Forget the Russians and underhand Democrat voting practices.

Democrats and their auxiliaries in the media routinely boast of their dream of turning America into a one-party state through changing who gets to vote in American elections.

Strikingly, this vast conspiracy to dilute the sovereignty of American voters by inviting in ringers from abroad is not covered up, nor even excused as aggressive-but-legal political hardball.

Instead, the dilution of the voting power of American citizens is praised lavishly as representing the highest value of “who we are as Americans.”

To protest, or even to notice, the open machinations to adulterate the value of your vote by importing millions of foreigners to increase the numbers of votes cast for the Democrats brands you as a deplorable.

That the Democrats want ever more non-Americans allowed into America so that these immigrants and their descendants can tip American elections toward permanent Democratic rule is something that Democrats are happy to discuss, just so long as Republicans admit that if they aren’t supportive of the Democrats’ scheme, then Republicans deserve their upcoming fate.

The origins of the immigration takeover:

Ted Kennedy sponsored the 1965 immigration act, which he hoped would increase immigration from Ireland to boost his own career. When it turned out instead to open the floodgates to the Third World, in 1990 Kennedy pushed through another immigration act to bring in more Kennedy-voting Irishmen, the diversity visa bill. Once again the Irish weren’t terribly interested, but Kennedy’s legislation set up chain migration beachheads in America for dozens of other nationalities.

It took Democrats a while to figure out that their grand strategy ought to be to give up on persuading the American people to elect them and instead for them to elect a new people. …

Up through 2000, the pro-Democrat New York Times editorial board opposed amnesty for illegal aliens, because it would be bad for working Americans’ wages. …

[T]he Democrats slowly figured out that mass immigration was the easy road to Chicago-style one-party rule.

In 1997, Peter Brimelow and Ed Rubenstein published an article in National Review, “Electing a New People,” laying out a numerical model of how the GOP was destroying itself by tolerating high immigration. They were among the first to point out what now seem like obvious truths—such as, that the GOP is in effect the white party, so the smaller the white percentage of the electorate in the 21st century, the worse the GOP does.
