Some Wonderful Posts to Read

Let's start with the always-wonderful Mark Steyn:
Is America set for decline? It’s been a grand run. The country’s been the leading economic power since it overtook Britain in the 1880s. That’s impressive. Nevertheless, over the course of that century and a quarter, Detroit went from the world’s industrial powerhouse to an urban wasteland, and the once-golden state of California atrophied into a land of government run by the government for the government. What happens when the policies that brought ruin to Detroit and sclerosis to California become the basis for the nation at large? Strictly on the numbers, the United States is in the express lane to Declinistan: unsustainable entitlements, the remorseless governmentalization of the economy and individual liberty, and a centralization of power that will cripple a nation of this size. Decline is the way to bet. But what will ensure it is if the American people accept decline as a price worth paying for European social democracy.
 Is he wrong?  I truly hope so - but, I can't say that I'm totally sure he IS wrong.  Read it for yourself, and decide.

Another site that I found important is about immigrant voting.

But, surely, that's an urban legend.  It's just one of those ire-inducing stories that conservatives love to prattle about - it REALLY doesn't happen.

Oh, doesn't it?  Heritage Foundation has the details, and, yes, it can, and has, already made the difference between winning and losing elections.
