From the ground up? Great, less call a convention of states while the number of Republican controlled states is dominating. That is the real benefit of the ground up success we have had. If we are reasonable, say repeal the 16th and 17th amendments and enumerate new protections for states. Even socialist leaning states have to agree that they should be free to participate in the incubator of freedom that the founders intended without fear that the federal government will decide against them. That makes our position even stronger. You can not change the Ruling Nobility that has grown in Washington because they regulate the game to win no matter who looses. But we can correct the eliminate the progressive experiments in socialist central authority that have cost us our liberty. And we can clarify the confusion that haunts the supreme court decisions. We don't need to vote in some new group. We need to stop playing their game and use the power the founders granted us to "remind" Washington who works for who.
Don't be silly. It doesn't matter if you are a Giants fan, or an Eagles fan, you can't forgive that man for an awkward, embarrassing attempted embrace at the Cowboys playoff. Even Cowboys fans had to be embarrassed to see Christie squealing like a little girl then wallowing up and down (and side to side) while trying to get his arms around their team owner. But for anyone living in New Jersey, it is an iconic moment when one realizes of all that is wrong with Christie. He has no respect for the people that elected him to office, or himself it would appear.

Maybe what this tells us is the days of the "newsies" is over. Why do we need anchors instead of journalists. I understand the importance of a pretty face and seductive voice for what remains of the aging nightly news broadcasts, or even the 24 hour cable broadcasts. They must draw traffic to sell advertising. But they are actors, playing a part in street theater. Not journalists. And most of the rest of the media are truely propagandists. They are an anachronism best left to fade away.

The problem is we are not in a hereditary ruling governing system, or at least we didn't used to be. There is no reason the people should be given the only the choice between the Bush Family or the Clinton Family. The Obama Republicans need to recognize this or they will be faced with a serious third party candidate that costs them the election. No Bush, no Clinton and no Obamas. Time for new faces
A strong wall with no enforcement is a false promise. Zero tolerance for foreign nationals caught living illegally in this country, with immediate and long term incarceration followed by expulsion or deportation will eliminate the problem regardless of a wall.
A lot of people that attend community college are not right out of high school. After a decade out of school I needed remedial math courses and remedial English. So the fact that so many people attending community college need remedial courses may not mean anything. However, the truth is that everything the government subsidizes gets more expensive. That is the big problem. Community College is far less expensive than high schools per student, at least where I live. Making it free really is just a way to say we want more teachers on the public dole so we can fund more Democrat voters. Republicans should not fall for this.

Attacking Jihad without challenging the Islamic Imperial governing institutions that make it profitable is futile. It is the legacy Islamic Imperialist system of government that is the problem. A form of government unchanged in more than a thousand years, and so alien to our modern world as to be unrecognizable.

Probably export it all. Funny thing about Islamic Imperialist fiefdoms. They have a history of tolerating the sins of the Dhimmitude if it generates sufficient revenue for the Emir.

An Emir is simply a formerly Christian knight converted to Islam and sworn to loyalty to the Caliph of the Islamic Empire and granted a fiefdom. Christian knights captured on the battlefield and not ransomed were of great value to the Caliph, who was threatened by the rise of tribal leaders that grew powerful through association and challenged the Caliph's authority. The Emir had no allies, no tribal connections and no security except that provided by the Caliph. They were good at fighting, ruling, collecting rents (the basis of Arab feudalism) and in developing estates. They were absolutely trustworthy, from the Caliph's perspective. They served an important purpose in the expansion of Islamic influence. If we cannot see beyond the armor, sword and warrior mounted on a horse to understand why knights were important to the Islamic Empire at it's apex, we will not be able to identify the role they play today.That they would call the leader of a "no go zone" an Emir, essentially a conquered city/state in England makes perfect sense and one they would expect the English of all people to understand. After all, when the Ottoman Empire was defeated in World War I it wasn't dissolved, it was absorbed into the British Empire, leaving the legacy Islamic Imperial system of government intact.
