Virtually everyone knows America has a big illegal immigration problem. But we also have a legal immigration problem: Current U.S. immigration policy is not serving the best interests of America. Is there a way to protect American citizens and still welcome newcomers to our shores? Reihan Salam offers an insightful solution.
Last night President Obama delivered the first major speech of his reelection campaign. There is no state of the union. As always, there is only the narcissist-in-charge and his free-spending empress—Michelle was wearing a $2,400 Barbara Tfank dress.
Within Obama’s relentless demagoguery about fairness there is an ugly Stalinist theme of class warfare. Stalin played this card in order to liquidate millions of Kulaks, those who opposed collectivization. Obama wishes to liquidate the capital of hard-working Americans in order to establish a utopian reign of equality and fairness.
Of course it’s Obama and his fellow millionaire Socialists who decide what’s fair and what’s equal.
Fifteen trillion dollars.
Today, the US National debt passed the fifteen trillion-dollar mark. That’s quite a record.
Welcome to the gates of hell.
If you want to see our—your debt—in action, here’s the US National debt clock live. I stared at it for about one minute and my head started to pound.
Interest on our debt represents about a third of the cost of Social Security. In about 20-years the interest will exceed the cost of that program.
You can confiscate the wealth of every millionaire and billionaire in America and the money wouldn’t even begin to make a dent in the national debt.
Taxes are not the answer. They are simply a ploy in Obama’s class war against the free market.
Another horrifying number: the US government is now gobbling up 40% of our GDP. This means that trillions of dollars from our economy are used merely to feed itself—a bloated series of interlocking, self-perpetuating bureaucracies.
