Wealthy businessmen and politicians do not have floods of low-skilled and illegal immigrants entering their neighborhoods. Hollywood and Ann Arbor are not permeated with these people, therefore it is easy for the elite to support illegal and mass legal migration.

Walmart: The Big Labor White Whale

What happened to the classical conservative loyalty to the "little platoons of society?" In the words of Sir Edmund Burke. I cannot understand why fellow conservatives are so passionate about Wal-Mart. We are a nation terribly addicted on cheap foreign goods. We have, as a whole, lost our skill sets. Vast amounts of people in this nation could not use their hands in any manner to survive: farm and cultivate food and live stock, build their own homes, or create their own goods. How is giving billions to China positive for America?
1. No Amnesty. 2. Limit Legal Immigration to a maximum quota of 100,000 for 50 years, or until the unemployment rate is lowered to 1% and is sustained that way for five years. 3. Enact Two "Enforcement Amendments" to the Constitution. One, future amnesties are prohibited. Two, birthright citizenship is mandatory.
All of these issue are interconnected: Amnesty, or the rewarding of law-breaking for millions of law violators; in-state tuition and driver's licenses for illegals. Gun bans, higher taxes in failed states like California, and just countless other issues. It is all related. For God's sake, wake up.

The End of the Reagan Era?

Also, if you want to halt the spread of Leftism, think about halting mass immigration and urban sprawl. Look at previous conservative areas that have rapidly changed to liberal strong-holds: Northern Virginia, San Diego, San Jose and Coastal California, and all metropolitan areas. Urban sprawl leads to government dependancy down the road. During harsh economic downturns, city people have no open space and farmland to turn to for self-sustenance and self-reliance, and so all that remains is big brother to feed them. Halt urban sprawl, save farmland, save our natural lands, or else Leftism will continue its spread.

The GOP long abandoned Ronald Reagan. How about embracing the historic Republican stance of stewardship of the natural world, aka God's Creation? The conservation ethic is a bedrock conservative principle, one that the great President Reagan embodied. Modern-day libertarianism has rejected protection of America's sacred natural heritage. We don't ened to "reinvent" conservatism. We need to revive historic classical conservatism.
You lose millions of WHITE voters because of your anti-environmental policies. Republicans should recommit to the traditional conservative principles of environmental protection and the conservation ethic. Sadly, this party has embraced "Liberal use and treatment" attitudes toward our Earth. As an Orthodox Christian, I believe the Bible when it says that the Earth "and the fullness thereof" belongs to God the Lord (Psalms 24:1). Visit ConservAmerica and rediscover the bedrock conservative commitment to Earth care and balanced wise growth. www.conservamerica.org

What "ails" the Church on Earth is the enormous fragmentation caused by Protestant spiritual anarchy. Many Protestants are good and faithful Christians, but the denominational anarchy, and the gradual abandonment of biblical Christianity by many denominations like the Episcopal Church, points toward the necessity of the spiritual unity of the ancient Orthodox Christian faith. When your churches embrace the sinful ways of the world, know that the Orthodox Church always remains true, serving as a safe harbor for those in treacherous spiritual waters. www.journeytoorthodoxy.com God bless.
Why does Congress never cut their own salary? If we reduced current Congressional pay to 1990 levels, from $174,000 to $98,400, American taxpayers would save well over $400 million in 10 years. A barely noticeable drop in the bucket, but it is the principle of the matter: if Congress is willing to cut our services, they should also be willing to sacrifice their sky high pay.
