Look at the data on self-deportation. When Arizona passed laws making it more difficult to thrive without documents, I saw that the highway south had many trucks piled high with furniture as people went home to Mexico. The statistics support that observation. As long as the pay is better for being in the USA illegally than for going home, Mexican citizens will stay; when that pay stops, they tend to go home or follow the money to California or some other sanctuary.

Although Mitt Romney took flak for his statement that he lost the election because President Obama bestowed “gifts” on key parts of the electorate, what he said is basically true.

We’re stuck in a deadly spiral where economic growth is retarded because the economy is larded with enormous and ever-increasing government spending and debt. Yet, more and more Americans want the lard.

President Obama got re-elected by promising to continue to serve it up.

Romney’s failure, and the failure of the Republican Party, is not that Obama is pulling this off, but that they can’t get their act together to explain...
