Immigration Reform Will Make Us Safer

Alienated young people who are not part of the mainstream are potentially more harmful to America. That’s why immigration reform is crucial to our security and has to be addressed.

Rand Paul is “El Hombre!”

Rand Paul has done what the 2012 Republican nominee for president failed to do: take a stance on immigration that makes sense, appeals to Latinos and doesn’t alienate the Tea Party base.

The Sequester Protester

The Sequester is Coming! But whether it’s crony capitalism, corporate welfare, pork barrel spending, government waste or non-essential government bureaucracy, most Americans would not mind, notice or even be affected if we cut $85 billion in spending.

Why is the GOP Still Sticking to Its Old Ways?

There should be no guilt, no shame and no fear in supporting immigration reform. But the Republicans still have more to lose –more they must lose– before they are faced with the reality that they have a problem.

Media Takes “60 Minutes” to Call Race for Hillary

Hillarymania? Why?

We’re experiencing Hillarymania, a manic condition that occurs in four-year cycles to members of the mainstream media afflicting them with a bizarre and uncontrollable urge to help get Hillary Clinton elected President of the United States, no matter the facts or obstacles in the way.

Time To Re-Think Our National Love of Football

It pains me to write so critically of this game I love and to which I owe so much and still enjoy. But it may be time to agree with my dad’s original assessment of football when he first came to America, watched on our black and white TV and said, “This is a game for animals.”

Mexico is An Opportunity Obama Needs To Appreciate

U.S.-México relations are at a stage that could result in inconceivable promise to the citizens of both nations. It’s up to President’s Obama and Peña Nieto to make this more than a high school homecoming scene, and to seize the significant opportunity before them.
