We can only hope that this immigration bill dies and soon. Both of my Republican senators (Chambliss and Isakson) support it, which is a reversal in what they said and did last year. Chambliss is up for re-election in 2008, and he will not be getting my vote unless he sees the light. I would rather not vote for anyone for senate than to support someone who goes against the wishes of his constituency. I call that taxation without representation.
It’s time to throw some tea in the harbor. The Congress of the United States and the president are not listening to the people. They are ruling like kings. If this latest forcing of “immigration reform” down the throats of the citizens passes, I fear for our country on a number of levels.
Why are the immigration debates focused on the imaginary plight of the illegals that are here rather than the real problems the failure to enforce our immigration laws cause this country? Shouldn’t a president and a senator be more concerned about maintaining our borders than providing amnesty to illegals and workers to those who lobby them? What country do you politicians want to “serve”? Mexico or the U.S.?
If you want to do what’s right for America, Mr. President, then study the problems you will be creating for this country by this outrageous cow-towing to business and foreign interests. Solve the main problem first — close the borders — then in a few years once it is clear that illegal immigration is under control, you can address the other in a bill that is not convoluted and confusing.
Stop acting like we Americans, who are concerned with the future of this country, are racist, nativist, fools. We are not. We believe being an American citizen is a privilege and should be treated with respect. Why aren’t you criticizing the Mexicans who booed Miss USA at the Miss Universe Pageant? What if Miss Mexico was booed here? I’m sure you would be appalled. Do you think we Americans are so privileged that we don’t deserve to be fought for on the world stage? Do we have to give away our country because you feel sorry for Mexicans? Do we have to have open borders and pay for the privilege? Mexico needs to fix its broken system, and it will never do that if you, Mr. President, continue to enable them. Let’s see some of that compassionate conservatism aimed at conservatives, Mr. President.p>Who will stand up for us? Anyone? br> — Deborah Durkee
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

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?
