I would hope you already know the answer and don't have to question your own values when some dimwit called you a name.
Unfortunately I have to admit that Republicans have been no better at enforcement of our immigration laws. Our Ruling Class simply wants illegals here. The Country Class does not (but for a few misguided souls, or those wishing to become members of the Ruling Class).
Couldn't care less. If he "could care less", that means he does care to some degree. "Couldn't care less" means he doesn't care at all.
Is it OK if I don't hold my breath waiting for this, or pretty much any, Act passed by Congress to be repealed by Congress? There seems to be some rule of the Congressional Old Boys (and Girls) Club that reads something like "Thou Shalt NOT Repeal That Which Your Predecessors Passed." There are aberrations, like when the telephone excise was repealed multiple times, and reintroduced multiple times, but generally once a Bill passes Congress and is signed into Statute by the President (or over his veto), it is pretty much safe from ever being repealed.

The MS Republican Primary Run-off was as clear an example as anyone could want of the ends to which our ruling class will go to keep their Divine Right office. It also was a pretty clear example of what the Republican ruling class actually thinks of the Republican base.

That isn't on their agenda. They are "owed" sufficient income, preferably without much toil and sweat, to live the life they wish to become accustomed to. And for those who are illegal aliens, they are also owed citizenship pronto.
Thank you. I'm almost a decade older, but you are spot on, as the Brits say. I've posted and e-Mailed this view of the country for several years now. It is truly a question of when, I don't see the citizens turning off the reality TV and getting off the couch to do anything about it.

I have to disagree in part. National Defense must be THE foremost power and responsibility of the Federal government. I would include control of our borders (Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement) under the heading of national defense. All else is secondary to defending the country.
While non-medicinal pot is "legal" under state law in 2 states, it is still an illegal substance under Federal Law. Federal law regarding all welfare benefits should prohibit use of benefits to purchase any substance, product or service which is illegal under either Federal or State law. If the States wish to ensure the "poor" can enjoy the high, they can follow Berkley CA's lead and consider passing a Statute requiring any pot shop dispense 2% (or some other percentage) of their stock free of charge to the "poor". Just another normal business expense, don't you see.
