    The violations of law and trust that are a result of the non-enforcement of immigration laws, especially as it relates to criminal illegal aliens, pales in comparison to the violations of King George III in Parliament. Across the country, states governments are shouldering the growing financial burden of keeping criminal illegal aliens in jail in the face of hostility from the executive branch of the federal government.

    To suggest there is "No Downside" is a bit inaccurate. A better way of phrasing the setup is there is "no NET downside" to not increasing the ceiling without significant budget cuts.

    I’ve been active in national politics since Ronald Reagan’s great victory in 1980, and I can honestly say that I’ve never seen the TV pundits display the level of insanity and stupidity that we see today. Regrettably, this sentiment applies to the press on both sides of the political aisle.

    Like would-be yentas trying to set you up on dates with their divorced friends, the political class is constantly trying to foist divorced candidates on the Republican Party, authoritatively assuring us that Americans don't have a problem with divorce anymore.

    Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels' announcement that he can't play in the presidential primaries because his wife and daughters say he's not allowed to is terrible news for the GOP and the country.

    How would you describe a perennial presidential candidate who insists in a televised debate that government has no more right to interfere with prostitution or heroin than it does to limit the right of the people to “practice their religion and say their prayers”?

    I am proud to be ahead of the curve on this issue and I commend Senator John McCain and Congressman Ron Paul for their steadfast opposition to torture. "Thinking that torture is wrong is not a liberal or conservative value - it is simply a value."

    The man who likely has done more than anyone to put the libertarian philosophy of freedom and small government on the political agenda probably will make another run for the presidency: U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.

    Was it Clinton, Congress, Wall Street, greedy bankers, deceitful mortgage brokers, or dishonest borrowers? While all these parties played a role, none of it would have been possible without the Federal Reserve System.

    Almost no one is talking about the most serious financial catastrophe taking place in the U.S. today. Instead everyone is focused on reigning in Congressional spending, particularly in areas like entitlements and Obamacare.

    One thing we have going for us is that stupidity proposed by the California Teachers' Association is bound to upset a lot of people who do not want their kids politically brainwashed by greedy teachers for the self-serving agenda of the teachers' unions.
