CNN You Tube Republican Debate

In the most wide open Presidential campaign, a few issues have risen to the fore on the Republican side of the aisle: the debt, the war on terrorists, and immigration.  The Romney/Guliani tussle about immigration at the beginning of the debate shows that the candidates are vying for position as the anti-illegal immigrant candidate as they should be.

But the problem isn’t that people want to come to America to earn money for their families or more competition for our jobs and housing—it’s about people who want to come to take advantage of our welfare.  None of the candidates really hit the point that if we got rid of our obnoxious welfare system, we wouldn’t have an immigration problem.  The more people here that would operate under the free market, the better.

It wasn’t an accident that the fitting inscription on the Statue of Liberty is, “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

Liberty is the solution to most, if not all of our problems.

  1. “None of the candidates really hit the point that if we got rid of our obnoxious welfare system, we wouldn’t have an immigration problem.”

    Amen to that. You ARE the hammer, and the nail is still reeling from the impact.

    I think that many people miss the last line of that quote: “I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

    Notice it’s a “door”. Right now we have no door on this country. We need to build that border fence to help stem the tide.

  3. We definitely need to build the wall. What’s the use of having laws if we can’t enforce them? Cheers!
