WHY ARE WE FOCUSING ON THE DESIRES OF GROUPS REPRESENTING MINORITY POPULATIONS, WHEN THE MAJORITY OF AMERICAN CITIZEN FAVOR DENYING ILLEGAL ALIENS A PATH TO CITIZENSHIP; OR THE DEPORTATION OF ILLEGAL ALIENS? Even the CBO, working with the data provided by Congressional Amnesty advocates and the anti-American Citizen Chamber of Commerce reported that Amnesty for illegal aliens would unequivocally further decrease wages for American Citizens - whose average wages have plummeted over the last 5 years at a record rate. Immigration policy is supposed to reflect what is in the interest of the Nation and it's citizenry - by this standard Amnesty should and must opposed.

Phyllis, I am shocked you would write something so absurd. Your ignorance here is reminiscent of how leftists reason. To reach an opinion on this issue, is it not logical to review the history at the time, read the federalist papers, review the words, notes, and personal journals of the framers who wrote the Constitution to determine the intent? Unlike the traditional amendment process, congress has nothing to do with this Article 5 method. What Congress thinks is irrelevant because it is removed from the decision making process (IE) State Legislature’s choose the delegates. To believe your misguided opinion - one would need to believe that the arguments put forward by George Mason never existed, the Constitutional Convention debates never occurred and the founders included Article V in the constitution for semantics. You’d have to believe that to safeguard the Republic from runaway Government tyranny, the framers came up with a remedy that required the people to jump through hoops, say "pretty please" and then wait to see if the ruling class favorably exercises any of the power it already has.

You really have no idea what you are talking about. Please educate yourself on our constitution and open your eyes. The process, described in Article V involves removing the Federal Govt from the decision making process all together and restoring the original intent of the constitution. If you've been living in a closet, it's necessary to inform you that our constitution has already been 'hijacked" by the statists. Removing and/or electing politicians to fix things is good, but not enough; because the system has been systemically altered. Electing great leaders will only serve as a temporary reprieve from our demise.
So, American citizens must now suffer with lower wages, more debt, more crime and less services to thuggery in a foreign nation? I don't care what reason someone comes here illegally - they are illegal and deserve Nothing!
The right thing? The right thing was to enforce our Nation’s immigration laws, the same way every other sovereign country on the planet enforces its immigration laws. Many American parents deal their children a bad hand, that doesn't entitle them to live off of the already heavily indebted American citizen. The tenor of Ms. Field’s article reveals that she has fallen for at least some of the sophistic propaganda of the Amnesty lobby. I ask her, how is it fair to forcibly seize a portion of a citizen's earnings and use it to improve the lives of foreign nationals who are unlawfully in our country? I suggest Ms. Shields use her own money and adopt an entire illegal alien family.
A better question is why the RNC Allowed NBC and CBS to host their debates in 2012? I'm sorry, did I miss the 2012 Democrat Primary Debate hosted by FOX? The GOP truly is the Stupid Party.
First of all the bill doesn't call for a Govt shutdown, only the defunding of Obamacare and it would put all of the Democrats on record who vote against it. This was part of the plan, which the RINO GOP leadership threw out the window by going on the Liberal Democrat media networks and attacking the conservative members who were proposing the amendment. And in the event of a shutdown -Stop listening to Karl Rove's Propaganda; he's lying; by law SSI checks, law enforcement, intelligence, the debt payments and interest payments, all get paid in event of shut down. We used to have them all the time it's the only way to stop govt expansion - Govt shut down 8 times under Reagan for 14 days and 2 or 3 times under Carter for more than 21 days. The fact is that Once Big Govt GW Bush and Rove came into power govt shut downs stop because they just rolled over and appeased Democrat government expansion every quarter. In addition contrary to the propaganda you've been fed, GOP actually came out a winner in 1995 the last time the govt was shut down - because they gained 2 Senate seats. Yes they lost 9 congressional seats but that was on account of the cycle where they had won 54 congressional seats in the election 2 years prior. Here are two articles to acquaint you with the facts. Truth of the matter is there is not even one historic example of a Govt Program "collapsing on its own" as Rove says Obamacare will do - particularly when it's a program receiving $Trillions of dollars which the Democrats adore and the Big Govt RINO establishment is willing to accept. Winning the Government-Shutdown Fight Defunding Obamacare: Questions & Answers, Excuses & Responses Also here’s a list of the 18 govt shutdowns we’ve had. They aren't a big deal and the world goes on. Every weekend and holiday we have a govt shut down; only nonessential activities are shut down:
The only possible way for success is to follow the Watergate model, as the Democrats do one every scandal. There is no debate, GOP leadership is pitiable. Strategy: everything is aimed at forcing Holder to appoint as special prosecutor as only he can- with the power to put people in front of grand juries (IE) criminal offense, Jail time. As well as, to get rid of the 5 minute questioning, house committee rule. The first step, long overdue, is to consolidate all of the committees currently tripping over each other investigating into two special committees, one for the IRS and one for Benghazi. Each committee must be led by professional, full time prosecutors with experience. Only then will the pressure force Holder to appoint a special prosecutor.
Conservatives hit back? Does this guy also write for the WSJ editorial page? Conservatives are for the rule of law, the Constitution, sovereignty and personal property rights not rewarding illegal immigration. Aside from America hating leftists, only corporatists and confused libertarians are in favor of open borders amnesty. Wise up! It is 100% totalitarian to force law abiding citizens to subsidize uninvited foreign nationals who have trespassed into our nation. The author's attempt to manipulate language is nothing more than a furtherance of the leftist issue- misdirection propaganda which has disingenuously framed today’s illegal immigration debate. He needs to be reminded that since the beginning of civilization and still everywhere else in the world - the sole objective and primary purpose of a Nation's immigration policy is to benefit that nation and improve the lives of that nation’s citizenry- period!
IT'S ALL SHAME THE NITWIT, LOSER GOP LEADERSHIP IS FALLING FOR. Obama and his leftist Cabal will NEVER secure the border, Never.
