Richard Viguerie made his fortune raising huge money for conservative causes via direct mail, the writing of which nearly always involves serious dishonesty and fear-mongering. So I wonder if he’s being dishonest when he claims that an Obama executive order on immigration would lead to a Civil War or if he really is that irrational.
Barack Obama’s famous observation about the 2008 election was, “Elections have consequences.”
But what if national leaders respond to an election by ignoring the will of the voters?
Then the election might have tempestuous consequences.
At least, according to longtime conservative fundraiser Richard Viguerie, who has a warning for President Obama about his stated plans to take executive action on immigration reform even though voters just repudiated his policies by voting his party out of power in the Senate.
“If President Obama, by executive order, extends amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, as he’s promised to do shortly, this could ignite, quite frankly, a civil war across America against the Democratic Party,” Viguerie cautioned.
He continued, “It could be a major, major blow to the Democratic Party and brand them as the party that rewards illegal activity, and it could do great, great damage not only to the Democratic Party, but quite frankly, to America.”
