Governors Voice Grave Concerns on Immigration
By ABBY GOODNOUGH

BOSTON — In a private meeting with White House officials this weekend, Democratic governors voiced deep anxiety about the Obama administration’s suit against Arizona’s new immigration law, worrying that it could cost a vulnerable Democratic Party in the fall elections.

Interesting that there is very little worry about the massive problems that face the country. That’s of little concern. It’s all about getting reelected. And, what issues reflect upon that goal. Never a concern that if they had real solutions they’d be whisked into power.

At the root of the Gooferment’s problem is their starting point — force. It immediately makes what they do: immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. They have a tremendous unavoidable and imho unrecoverable burden.

It seems so apparent to me: adopt honest money by repealing the “legal tender” diktats, end the income tax returning to funding the Gooferment by tariffs and excise taxes; repeal the mandatory school attendance diktats; reduce the size and scope of the Gooferment by shutting down whole sections of Gooferment; stop the various wars; end the “war” on (some) drugs; pardon non-violent drug offenders; repeal the 17th for the direct election of Senators; and institute a single 18 year term for Supreme Court justices.

Seems so obvious to me!

Then stand back and watch the economy take off.
