One of the saddest things about watching the whole immigration bill political theatre play out is how self-described conservatives are willfully, painfully blind about the source of their woes. They can identify 'liberals' as major backers of illegal immigrant amnesty. They can identify 'RINOs'. Even Republicans.
But they have severe trouble identifying, or even talking about, the role businesses are playing in this legislation. The idea that corporations - business interests - are pushing for legislation that will help them at the expense of the country is something they are blind and mute to. Just as they'll blame the courts, liberals, and universities for the advances of the LGBT agenda, but the role of businesses in treating gays as a valuable market demographic that they, by necessity, had to cater to and treat well (and therefore endorse the 'pride' of) just goes right over their heads. Because it's too sacred, and too close to the heart of economic conservatism.
Of course, there's also pragmatic reasons behind this. The business owners pour money into the GOP (just as they pour it into the Democratic party, but forget that for a moment), so you can't piss them off. No one's sailing to the presidency based on the money churchgoers, pro-life activists and the rest are donating - that sort of money doesn't buy massive stadiums to hold political rallies. Of course, once you recognize this, you also recognize that the GOP is no longer even 'the lesser of two evils' but just the same exact evil in a slightly different flavor.
But is it even possible to react to this situation anymore? What can you do - threaten to punish the business leaders? Great, now we're making the government the kingmaker overseeing business policies - what a stupid idea. How about boycotts? Sure, that would work... except we can't count on much of anyone to do any boycotting, and half the country would go out of their way to support any business the other half was attacking.
So what options are left? There really seem to be none that are obvious.
