The GOP does have some credibility issues, but primarily with Dem/Libs. And yes, RINOs, acting like Dem/Libs, have expanded the government.

"How do you think Barack Obama won twice?" How Obama was elected in the first time: A quote from a Thomas Sowell piece: Upon learning that the Constitution requires a president to be a natural born citizen, a college student said: "What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified than one born by C-section?" The sole reason Obama won his first campaign for president is because all the clueless of this mentality, who usually don't vote, came out in droves to make a social statement by electing our first "black" president, giving Obama, a man who had fewer leadership skills and business experience than an assistant manager at McDonald’s, the margin needed to win. How Obama was elected in the second time: First, the RINO Romney so disappointed a large number of Republicans and/or Conservatives, they simply didn't vote. Second, Coulter nailed the Demographics: The sleeping giant of the last election wasn't Hispanics; it was elderly black women, terrified of media claims that Republicans were trying to suppress the black vote and determined to keep the first African-American president in the White House. Contrary to everyone's expectations, 10 percent more blacks voted in 2012 compared to 2008, even beating white voters, the usual turnout champions. Eligible black voters turned out at rate of 66.2 percent, compared to 64.1 percent of eligible white voters. Only 48 percent of all eligible Hispanic voters went to the polls. No one saw this coming, which is probably why Gallup had Romney up by 5 points before Hurricane Sandy hit, and up by 1 point in its last pre-election poll after the hurricane. Only two groups voted in larger numbers in 2012 compared to 2008: blacks aged 45-64, and blacks over the age of 65 -- mostly elderly black women. In raw numbers, nearly twice as many blacks voted as Hispanics, and nine times as many whites voted as Hispanics. (Ninety-eight million whites, 18 million blacks and 11 million Hispanics.) So, naturally, the Republican Party's entire battle plan going forward is to win slightly more votes from 8.4 percent of the electorate by giving them something they don't want.

The K Street President

It's painfully obvious, and has been for some time, that Obama's presidency has been nothing more than ONE BIG LIE!
Clearly people are going to use whether legal or illegal. Legal generates tax revenues and releases law enforcement/incarceration funds to deal with the issues. Illegal doesn't. And try being realistic. Do you honestly believe society is going to go harsher on drug users? The global trend is less.
Sorry, that sentence should read: "Legal removes violence and corruption inherent with illegal and legal generates tax revenue to deal with the problems of legal.
It would be nice if the fairy tale of humans overcoming / losing the desire for mood altering drugs, including alcohol, would come true. Things being the way they are, it's obvious that is not going to happen. People are going to use whether it's legal or not. Illegal creates more problems than it solves. Legal removes violence and corruption inherent with illegal and generates tax revenue to deal with the problems of legal. Illegal is a lose-lose situation. Legal is a win-lose situation. I would however qualify that highly addictive drugs like meth still need to be illegal, but the penalties for use/possession need to be extremely harsh to act as a deterrent. Why risk so much when other drugs are legally available?

Medicare Solution

First off, the vast majority of Americans have no problems with legal immigrants to the U.S., with few exceptions. So, if it turns out that rich, cigar-smoking, fat-cats like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet can benefit from their cheap labor (while displacing American workers) and Medicare benefits too, then so be it. Second, and as others pointed out, you said it yourself: "The reasons are largely demographic: Immigrants are younger and more likely to be of working age...". So, until we have a few more decades of older immigrants partaking of benefits, we really can't compare apples to apples. Despite having a strong difference of opinion, I pray your surgery and recovery go well.
I've read a great deal and listened to experts on TV and radio (NPR). Important in surviving Ebola infection is starting treatment ASAP, critical of which is maintaining fluid levels to offset those lost by bleeding. And the treatment given the doctors here in the U.S. seems to have also played a role in their recovery, but two cases can't be definitive to the drugs effectiveness. So, the doctors could have gotten everything they needed medically right where they were infected, except the drugs, which could have been put on plane and flown to them much faster than they were flown to the U.S. The risk, although minimal, of bringing them to the U.S. was totally unnecessary and No. 2 of what Dave said.

Placing Kids above Politics

As for as Dem/Libs are concerned, if you're a white person, you're evil, and especially evil if you're a male. If not guilty by personal actions, then by that of your ancestors or by simply being the same race as a white person that was evil. The classification is only applied to whites. All other races are exempt. It must be terrible being a white, male Dem/Lib. Waking up every morning and hating yourself all day long.
For these cold-blooded animals, the guillotine is much too quick.
