Will of the people
Your editor in chief, Wesley Pruden, and Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican, both seem to agree in the Nov. 13 edition that amnesty for illegal aliens is inevitable. President Bush has been in favor of it all along, and now that the Democrats are in charge it will certainly pass Congress.
It’s too bad. And it sends the wrong message to all those aliens waiting patiently in line to legally enter the United States.
At least a few smaller cities, like Hazelton, Pa., are passing legislation in a local attempt to address an issue long-ignored by the federal government with which whom responsibility really lies. Of course they are being attacked by the ACLU, media, and other “progressive” organizations. It’s the holiday tree vs. the Christmas tree all over again. All across the country, the “will of the people” is being crushed by the dictates of the courts. Again, it’s too bad.
Is America truly lost? As someone once asked Ben Franklin: “What form of government have you given us?” Franklin replied: “A Republic, madam, if you can keep it!” Our Republic seems to have devolved into a Democracy which is collapsing into an Oligarchy right before our closed eyes.
