You and I are second-class citizens. The illegal immigrant -- who stole into this country without clearing customs, without a background check, without any medical screening, and without being fondled by the TSA -- is noble and virtuous. The illegal immigrant must receive preferential status over you and I.
It's true: the federal government believes you and I exist to serve the illegal immigrant.
You and I, who pay everyone's freight, are no longer citizens. We are the subjects of a ruling class: a federal leviathan grown so large and centralized and authoritarian and uncontrollable that it no longer operates with the consent of the government. It exists to feed itself. And it would appear that it simply can not be satiated.
