Wow! Judson, you surprise me. This article is the closest I have heard you come to saying anything that would make Newt look bad. If fact, it the closest that you have come to saying anything that would make Romney look good.
After all, Gingrich is the one candidate who is most openly in favor of amnesty for illegals and Romney is the one candidate who is most solidly opposed to anything even remotely resembling amnesty for illegals. In fact, Romney's stand on illegal aliens is one of the few positions he has never changed.
In all seriousness, Romney's consistent stand on strengthening our laws on illegal immigration is one of the things that gives me some solace, when thinking of Romney as our nominee. It reminds me that it could be worse. We could have Newt, who would grant amnesty to 90% of illegal aliens.
There are two things that could quickly turn this economy around, by creating millions of jobs and aggressively enforcing our laws on illegal immigration, including mandating e-Verify nationwide, is one of them. If we make it impossible for illegals to get a job, impound their vehicles, when they're ticketed for driving without a license, and take off the handcuffs that Dubyuh placed on the Border Patrol, the illegals would have no choice but to self deport, thus opening up millions of jobs for American citizens and legal residents and our economy would completely turn around within six months. On the subject of impounding the cars of those ticketed for driving without a license, the government would be able to then require evidence of citizenship or legal residence, before the vehicle could be released.
BTW, the other thing that could quickly turn around the economy is the FairTax. Unfortunately, none of the GOP candidates are concerned enough about cutting the size of government to get behind the FairTax, since its transparency would make people realize how much government has always cost them and they would demand serious reductions in government spending.
John. I could not have said this any better, thank you. You should run for office, you would have my vote.
Romney has the best chance of winning this election, not Paul, not Newt, not Santorum. If you say this,
you become the enemy of those supporting this candidate. We are all grown ups, can have a civil debate.
We should have a fairTax. Why should one person making 100K pay support services for everyone else? Is this considered fair? If you are successful, you must pay for everyone elses support services like teachers, parks, fireman, policeman, etc. Where in the Constitution that is says that the rich pay for the poor? That is what Churches are for and charity, not govenment. The rich pay for schools, teachers, government, etc while others, who use these services, pay nothing, get if free. Is this fair? How can you sustain a system where 50% dont pay for support services? If a person has 4 children going to public education and makes 25K a year, they pay nothing for teachers, school property, supplies, janitors, books, adminstration, etc. They get services while paying nothing. The producer must pay for these 4 children that are not his/hers, and also pay for their children going to school. He/she also is forced to pay for others support services. This person making 25K a year, paying no taxes gets to vote about raising the taxes on the rich fo more free services! Really! Thats insane, no that progressivism, that the USA where rich is evil and poor is entitlements and oppressive. G-d save us from immoralty and ignorance.
We are marking people from California who move here. Should things go South from here they will be politely asked to depart from us. Something they will be all too happy to comply with. Actually, nobody wants them now!
First off, AMEN to America needing leaders that pander to Illegal aliens to be removed from office. America should welcome those that desire above all to BE American and follow due process to earn the rights of a citizen. I heard talking of illegal Mexicans/Central Americans BRAGGING that they are here for money and TO HELL with Americans, in their words. How about that, the city of Los Angeles. You pander to them and they only lift a middle finger to you. Liberal L.A. politicians must be such attention whores that they don't mind the abuse.
Secondly, I'm now a happy Pennsylvanian. I left New Jersey and was happy to do so because of New Jersey's over legislated, over governed system. Lucky those left behind there have Chris Christie, seems he has ten years plus of work un-screwing the state of Democrat created horse dung, God bless the man. Sounds like California is in the same situation as New Jersey to me, sounds like they need a Christie of their own.
Not only is L.A. a sanctuary city, the City Council wants to abolish Freedom of Speech, and the Police Chief, has now decided recently ,that Police Chief Ray Kelly of New York, has it all wrong ,rousting Muslims would be wrong, unkind .He feels we must be more sympathetic to People whose Religion tells them to kill us.
