Republicans See the Light on Immigration

Think of a bathtub full of water, when thinking about the illegal immigration issue. The water flowing into the bathtub represents the people entering this country illegally. The level of water that is in the tub, represents those people who are in this country illegally. The drain represents the number of illegals that are leaving the country willingly or unwillingly or are dying. Unless you turn off the faucet, more water will be filling the bathtub. If more water is going into the tub, then the amount going down the drain, the water level will rise. Unless you can figure out a way to stop people from entering this country illegally, more people will enter this country illegally. If more people are entering this country illegally, then are caught or leave voluntarily or die, like a bathtub where the more water is coming in, then is going down the drain, the water level will rise. You are making some progress if the water level is going down. You are losing the battle, if the water level is going up. You are treading water, if the water level remains at basically the same level. So, the question is, if they are going to propose “reforming the system”, will the water level drop significantly?

When a person is dependent on a government handout, who are they likely going to vote for? Someone who they think wants to take away that handout, or someone who will fight to make sure they continue to get the handout?
If you don't have to work, and you are able to feed yourself, have the government that wants to make sure you have a roof over your head, get free medical care, why should you work?
You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

Think Power Inequality

Do poor people have as much power as rich people? Is there no income inequality at the White House? As long as one person makes $1 more than another person, there incomes are not equal. When does it become a problem? Can you solve the problem without limiting someone's freedom?
When talking about drug legalization the relevant question is, is it a good idea or a bad idea? In order to decide, we should know what the advantages and disadvantages are, before making a decision. If you legalize what are now illegal drugs, will bad things happen? Of course it will. But bad things also happen, when drugs are illegal as well. The relevant question is, which results in more bad things happening?

Americans "may" resent it, but they do not resent it enough to change the status quo.
Okay, so this guy should not get the job. What happens if he does?
What is more important that Syria eventually eliminates its stockpile of chemical weapons, or that they are not doing it fast enough?

What is the farm bill?

If some of it goes to help rich farmers, why do so many democrats support the bill? I thought they believe that the government should not be helping the rich?
