Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.

Religious Ethics and Family Values

In a recent letter to the editor of the Denver Post, a writer lamented the fact that religious leaders are very proud of their efforts on marriage and family issues yet have been deadly quiet on the SCHIP veto by President Bush. The writer goes on to accuse the leaders of wanting those children to be born (anti-abortion) but not wanting to support them when they are in need of health care or other costly services.

The writer is at least partially correct. The religious leaders should have spoken out praising Bush for his courage in vetoing the excesses represented by the doubling of the number of persons eligible for SCHIP. A strong advocacy for vasectomies, tubal ligations, and family planning as an alternative to abortion rights would have made more sense than an attack on religious leaders who oppose abortion.
