If only they had asked Beyonce and JZ to put a good word in for them.
Oh great, I live in CT. I suppose I could look on the bright side, perhaps we can finally beat out New York and New Jersey and at last be the 50th worse state for tax burden.
I agree, they are generally good people who bring a good work ethic with them. The problem is that many lack even the most basic of education thereby limiting their employment opportunities anywhere. As a byproduct, they seem to look to government of all types to minimize the impact of those limitations. This is why the socialist/democrat message registers with them so frequently.
While all that may sound like a nice strategy, I am of the opinion that a republican legislative AND executive branch could grant amnesty to all illegals and they would still vote for the democrats. We should certainly not decide a path to more votes by having an awkward group hug with people who would likely change our form of government with little thought of it. If Jeb Bush were to get the nomination, we would certainly lose. And not just for immigration policy opinions.
So when does the CT model come out?
"For one thing, no one is sure whether Clinton will actually run." Seriously? Her ego is too large to prevent her from doing so. How is it that people do not understand her in the most basic sense?
My thoughts exactly. Furthermore, the article highlights the view of Obama that rocket attacks from Hamas on Israel and IDF responses to those attacks as morally equivalent. Is this not the view of the Carter Center?

Dr. Sowell is right, rather than working with the so called establishment to affect changes, the self proclaimed "true conservatives" of the tea party expend massive amounts of resources harming the very cause they champion. I was once a tea party enthusiast and while I still share and value their opinions, it became clear to me that they are more interested in taking over the republican party than actually winning elections. I agree with ted Cruz on many things, but his filibuster stunt was beyond stupid as a tactic. I think the democratic party of today is as close to being communists as it has ever been and if we wish to stop them, going nuclear on one another will only further their agenda.

You make a fine point, but I think hostiles you refer to made it past the picket lines years ago because we let them and that is why we are now dealing with this. Should we fight them all still? Perhaps. But we have neglected the importance of getting the right people elected and we are now suffering the results of that neglect. (Appropriately, the circumstances remind me of what is presently happening in Ukraine.) I don't claim to have the answers, but an efficient way to get killed on the battlefield is to allow target fixation.

You all make good points. I by no means advocate for forceful compliance and do not wish for anybody to do something which they find objectionable. The point I am making is that I think we can solve this problem by focusing on the disease rather than the symptom. The disease is the steady move toward socialism and perhaps even totalitarianism as Fed Famer suggests. Therefore, I think we should be expending energy on highlighting the ever growing population of socialists and communists in government from the local level all the way to the fed. Win that battle, and I think we would likely not even have to fight this one.
