Constitution Daily: How the GOP loses the election on the energy issue

Excerpted from this post at Constitution Daily

Remember a few months before the 2006 election? A split GOP boiled
over on the immigration issue and the halls of Congress were jammed
with phone calls, emails, petitions, and an angry electorate that
would vote anyone out of office if they voted for that comprehensive
immigration plan. Congress heard it, and passed the positive
components of immigration reform that America overwhelmingly
supported. Like the wall. Just weeks before the election, almost every
ounce of rage was sapped from the voting public because Congress got
the message. We were going to actually build a wall. Problem solved.
We all know the result.
