Brandon Crocker’s article on how wonderful a guest worker program would be left one thing out:
Who does he expect to enroll in it? If, as now, there are no penalties for remaining here illegally, why would an immigrant jump through all the bureaucratic hoops and shell out thousands of dollars to join such a program? Nope. The status quo will suit most illegals just fine.p>Oh, I’m sure Congress would be full of self-congratulations and hire thousands of people to sit in empty guest worker offices nationwide, but unless there are serious consequences (yes, deportation) for not joining, this is an exercise in futility. br> — Gary Long br> Lubbock, Texas /p>
I just finished reading Brandon Crocker’s article about the supposed differences between a guest worker program and amnesty. He seems to miss the point that our current travails stem from active aggression by a Marxist Mexico determined to redistribute wealth from the world’s most successful nation to their own which, given its squandered natural advantages, must rate as the world’s most failed nation.
Mr. Crocker tries to rely on tired “market forces” arguments to justify the presence of alien workers in our midst. If he is right (and I do not believe that he is), it supports the postulate that the spectrum of political philosophy is circular, not linear, i.e., libertarians may actually be located closer to Marxists than to conservatives.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
