Long illegal = ok, short illegal = bad?
the short answer would be yes. it's a matter of being practical. i have never thought it was practical...even if it's desirable, to try to round up and deport 10 to 20 million illegals. so...there needs to be some kind of registration and sorting system. the system needs to discourage new illegals as much as it needs to identify those who have been here a long time.
Is China really going to fall on the “ash heap” of history as brainiac Gov Perry says?
chinas economy is not stable. they are starting to suffer many of the problems of instability that we all are. the have other issues that could cause them disaster, not the least of which is an aging and HUGE population.
must one be good in debate to be a "brainiac"? that might cause some problems for a few....just saying.....
Do we keep pouring 100 billion a year in to Afghanistan because we don’t want to waste our previous 10 year investment in $$$ and lives as Romney says? Do any of you “double down” on your stocks when they hit the skids? How has that worked for you? We could learn a lot from history if we read it with regards to Afghanistan.
no argument there. we should have put much more effort into our long term relationship with Iraq and been out of Afghanistan years ago.
yes, we buy more stocks when the price is down. so do you if you are invested in a 401k plan. how does it work? depends on the market, but if you are in for the long haul, it works well. if you were planning on retiring tomorrow, i wouldn't advise it.
Is an EMP really on the top of Republican worries at night?
this has been a worry for the security folks for years. do some research. it's close to the top of the list of really bad things that could be pretty easily (in theory) done. computer hackers are up there also.
How about racial profiling as Mr Cain suggests?
Do we extend/enhance the Patriot act to over ride the bill of rights as everybody but Ron Paul supported?
didn't watch the debate, but if Cain is suggesting that our major efforts be directed toward those groups we know to be a consistent threat, then yes, i'd agree with racial profiling. profiling the major threat does not mean that you ignore other possibilities. we have limited resources and it makes sense to direct them where they will do the most good. racial profiling is another one of those liberal buzz terms designed to evoke an emotional response instead of a logical one.
before i address the patriot act issue, have you read it?
