I'm not certain of the numbers but as there are millions of illegal aliens in this country, if we citizens didn't have to pay for their educations, medical and other social benefits plus had the jobs that they are now enjoying, would the economic facts not be a bit brighter?
Why is it that the good people of Texas keep producing such insipid Presidential candidates who whine about America not being "kind and gentle," "compassionate" or "heartfelt" enough?
And since this thread is ostensibly about Mark Steyn's analysis and comments, I'll throw in this quote from his book America Alone: "Demography is destiny"...
Oh BTW Castigar, enjoy these threads, but don't lose your head... /g
BTW, didn't you say good bye a few comments back. I guess you decided to lurk and see if anyone else on the thread didn't like Perry.
Palin can hold her own. She’s had her flubs on screen and learned. I pray she runs, and am waiting for her to announce. If she decides against, then Cain is my candidate. I was thinking of Perry, but the immigration thing sucks. Cain will need to gain some insight into foreign policy and its workings, but he is solid and ready to go. Newt turned me off in 1995, but then I gave him a chance until he supported Dede Scozzafava. That was it forever. He showed he is a finger-to-the-wind guy. I want someone who is a solid conservative, not someone who thinks that Democrat-lite is okay for the Republican party. I like Santorum, but he has not seemed seriously wanting this. If he is, he needs to start doing something.
Palin is our best bet. I think she is ready to take on Obama. I think the country is ready for her, as well.
My first choice is Santorum. I am a PA guy and am used to his combative nature and principled approach. I hoped for Perry as well and saw his past performance as an indicator of future success. Didn’t happen.
Debates are tough and jumping in late is giving you no favors. I don’t care either way right now if Palin gets in now or not. I just think that the concept that she will roll in to front runner out of the box is misguided. This is going to be a really tough election for everyone and every little bit of advantage that can be gotten should be.
