Amnesty for all peoples, at all times, for all things
From Rich Lowry on the post-election rush for amnesty for illegal aliens:
The networks had barely called the election for President Barack Obama before GOP elites rushed to embrace an amnesty for illegal immigrants.
First, the term GOP elites is as much a misnomer/oxymoron as public servant or liberal think-tank.
Next, why not pander? After all, amnesty for illegals is little different than the
bankruptcy amnesty the federal government will be seeking sooner or later on unrepayable government debt (in polite company, please be sure and use the term restructuring). Most of the debt is at the federal level, where they can still easily create money but there’s plenty at the state and local levels as well.
Is it possible, perhaps even likely, that America’s politicos are even more stupid than many Americans?
Things that can’t continue forever, like spending 140% of your income, won’t.
