Scott Walker for President!
The following have all been verified, and I can provide the sources if needed. If this doesn't get you angry, then you're a dem. 1. $11 billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state gov's. 2. $22 billion a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. 3. $2.5 billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. 4. $12 billion a year is spent on primary and secondary education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English. 5. $17 billion a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. 6. $3 million a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. 7. 30% of all Federal prison inmates are illegal aliens. 8. $90 billion a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare and Social Services by the American taxpayers. 9. $200 billion a year in suppressed American wages are caused by illegal aliens. 10. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45 billion in remittances to their countries of origin. 11. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes commited by illegal aliens in the U.S. The total cost is a whopping......$338.3 billion dollars a year. In other words, it is $338,300,000,000.00 which would be enough to stimulate the economy for the CITIZENS of this country. Are we really THAT stupid? I guess we are because I don't see any dems or repubs talking about fixing this. And then we wonder why there is such a mess at our borders as people scramble to come here.
I do have problems with some of the radical TEAs, especially when they insist that, whoever a candidate is, he or she must support every single issue they do. That's why I no longer financially support the movement. I don't believe they are realistic about some issues. I don't care who the candidate is, one is never going to find one with whom every individual can agree on every issue. As long as a person supports the really important issues and is willing to fight for them and supports the conservative base, I will vote for him or her and hold him/her to what they've promised. As far as the Walker support for a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens, I read the article mentioned by someone here yesterday, and I agree with Walker that something has to be done because, unlike Eisenhower's deportation, we cannot deport 11+ million people. However, it should be done in a careful and legal way AFTER the border is secure, and a good place to start would be to deport those who, in addition to breaking our immigration laws, broke other laws. We could start with the gang members in the big cities, esp. LA and Chicago. We could clean out the jails and send every illegal in jail home to their country. There definitely SHOULD NOT be a blanket policy for 5 million which is treating some people differently than others as our idiot prez has done. Talk about a form of racism!
One of my biggest problems with the D.C.GOP is the fact that they use the terms Conservative and Tea Party as if they are expletives. I laugh when I hear them say that the GOP is the party with the big tent. Rather than spending time focusing on the dems and talking about the scandals and lies and games, they focus on criticizing their base. The following was sent to me in an email today. I'm only printing parts of it, but it's worth reading: I'm a RACIST for criticizing Obama. I'm a TERRORIST because I want to protect my 2nd Amendment rights. I'm a TEABAGGER for supporting the Constitution. I'm a NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT because I speak my mind. I'm a TROUBLEMAKER for asking unanswered questions. I'm a TRAITOR for exposing the corruption in my government. I'm a CONSPIRACY THEORIST for presenting documented facts. I'm ANTI-AMERICAN for not towing the party line. I'm a WAR MONGER because I support the troops. I'm a GREEDY CAPITALIST because I believe I am entitled to what I earned. GUILTY as charged, and proud of it! Add to the list that I really do believe that those like me who love this country and want it to get back on track are also able to effectively defend our positions although most libs won't even discuss the facts. They just say we're wrong. Do I believe that Jeb Bush would work to defend us domestically against these radicals? NOPE! Scott Walker -- 2016!
I like it! When are all those idiots who have scr!wed over us in the last several presidential elections going to learn?
I like Cruz, but I'd rather see him stay in the Senate and fight there. I really believe that Scott Walker is the best candidate for 2016. I've watched him, read about him, and cheered him when the dems fought against him and he won.
I think that would be Scott Walker.
I forgot to mention that we don't need ANYONE who dislikes and badmouths Conservatives or the Tea Party.
I adore Senator Sessions, but I think for now we need him to stay in the Senate fighting against amnesty. I'm still a strong supporter of Scott Walker. We don't need dynasties in this country. We don't need moderates any longer or there will be no country to love and protect. We don't need the Chamber of Commerce or any other special interests determining who should be our candidate. What we need very badly is someone who loves this country, who understands that it's a republic of laws and plans to follow them, who listens to the citizens regarding their concerns, and who is willing to stand up to the dems and the moderates who are always preaching about not doing this or that in case we hurt someone's feelings.

Agreed. I also wish we could get rid of the UN in NY. Send it to some other country. They are basically useless.

Outstanding as usual, Dr. Sowell. The responsibility of our politicians is to protect this country and its citizens. Unfortunately, the most important thing for most politicians today is to get re-elected and to focus on small matters which aren't essential, just so they can say they did something. If they put as much effort into doing their jobs, and doing them effectively, we wouldn't be facing so many crises in this country today. Frankly, except for a small number of those in office, I have no respect for politicians today. I know that human nature has always been the same, but this report from Feinstein tops the list of "Bush did it!" BS that I've been hearing for the past 7 or 8 years. I don't care how it was done since I do believe that, aside from a few basic human errors, we were kept safe from another major attack. We now continue to have open borders and allow illegal aliens into this country with little consequence to them, and it doesn't seem as though anyone is any longer concerned with the dangers that come with them, including the diseases we had basically eliminated here. The country is going to hell!
