Alchemy is the mythical ability to transform base metals into valuable metals. Our president has become an alchemist in his quest to turn red states into blue states. Never has it been more apparent that a political party wants to overthrow the country and cast it in its own mold.

Last week, Mr. Obama was in Texas trying to drum up Democratic support. However, this process is taking too long. Elections are only a few months away, and there is not enough time. By using the practice of alchemy, Mr. Obama thinks that if he can get enough would-be Democrats to cross the border and allow them to vote (and give them numerous freebies), he can get states such as Texas on the Democratic side — and then force new laws and restrictions on the American people.

Imagine a country with some of the highest taxes, free health care, free food, free money, subsidized housing and only a small percentage of the population being forced to pay for it all. Actually, it’s not too hard to imagine after all, is it?
