Not that I favor illegal immigration. I also favor a more restricted flow of legal immigrants despite our history because I think it's too much now and too many don't seem inclined to love this country. But let's never let our opponents paint us as racist or anti-immigrant.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Future, your point is a good one. I'm appalled by the attitude of people like Tincan and Frank. They indulge in the same fantasy that allowed communism, socialism and progressivism to take root in this world. They advocate acting on a Utopian dream. They will vote for no one because no one else is conservative enough for them. Our country was not founded by Utopian dreamers (for the most part), it was founded by pragmatists who, even as the drafted our Constitution, were forced to accept bitter compromise in order to move in the general direction their vision told them to go. If we lose this country people like these will bear most of the responsibility. It is easy to be a purist and thereby cede ground to the enemy. It is much harder to be a realist and accept smaller steps in the right direction.
Excellent article. A great example of the nitty gritty work that true conservatives have to do to get the country back on track. Sadly, the facile arguments in favor of this kind of thing seem to attract too many GOP'rs.

Republicans Won't Pass Immigration Reform

Enforce the law. These people did not all come hear over night. It took many years. If we enforce laws against hiring them, seal the border and stop "reunification", they will mostly melt away. If that were to happen and 10-15 years from later we had only a few illegal aliens, I would support some form of immigration reform that allows guest workers.

Cuomo will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2016. So, save this article for use in our campaign to defeat him.

Is there any place I can sign up for the list of those who won't be beheaded? I have no intention of converting Islam, although that alone wouldn't be sufficient protection since I would have to be wise enough to pick between the Sunni and the Shiite brands, the difference between which I have no ability to discern, other than sometimes being one gets you beheaded and other times being the other does. But, maybe we Americans can choose between those who wanted to see radical Islamism destroyed and those who didn't. Then, once shariah law replaces our Constitution, those of us who wanted it destroyed should be spared beheading, right? Or isn't that not how it works? But, what will become of the LGBT community, or that part of it that espouses peace and inclusion, even of Islamists? Which line should they join? This is all very confusing.

A Bitter After-Taste

"Nation building" succeeded in Japan and Germany because we defeated them totally, mercilessly and without condition. We had the capacity to do that in Iraq, Afghanistan and even Viet Nam, but we lacked the will. A good case can be made that we lacked the will because in none of those cases was the USA directly threatened with potential destruction. We will now wait and see whether Islamists ever achieve a society sophisticated enough to truly threaten ours. Nothing in the history or culture of these morons suggests that they will be able to do that.
This is all well-planned. Just as a chef "tempers" a sauce by first mixing a small amount of hot liquid with the egg mixture, the media and Hillary's henchmen are tempering her run. They are well aware that any politician becomes less popular once they are running in earnest, so they want to get some of this initial Hillary shock out of the way and get us used to her negatives so that we don't think so much about them once the real game is afoot. Do not be fooled, they have a plan and it is working.
Who's intolerant now? Gotta wonder where this stops, or if it ever will.
