    The 1st amendment is irrelevant. Employees can still be fired for insubordination, and rush is no exception.

    So GOP pols have a delicate balancing act on their plate--they have to meet the demands of their corporate/PAC sponsors who want undocumented workers to stay in the US (so they can exploit them) all the while creating the impression to their bigoted voting bloc that they hate "illegals" just as much as they do and want them out.

    If we liberals are smart, we just have to find a way to exploit this political predicament to our advantage

    I wasn't taking sides. I was simply calling you out for telling a Canadian guy to **** off. As if somehow that reaction took a great deal of thought on your part.

    For anybody who is wondering, libertarians are as a rule socially liberal, fiscally conservative.
    And don't forget typically vote with the cons.

    rush has an agreement w/Clear Channel's Premier Radio Networks, and he has to abide by the terms of that contract.

    Spewing anti-immigration rhetoric on the air could violate the terms of his contract, and if it does, then Clear Channel can oust him.

    No true Libertarian should ever want immigration laws that keep people who want to work out for any reason.

    Libertarians support pure free enterprise, and in such a system, there should be no restrictions whatsoever on who a private individual, business, or organization can hire to do work for them. All at-will employment agreements are considered valid, regardless of the ethnicity and/or residency status of the person(s) being hired.

    Undocumented worker laws amount to a hiring impediment, and therefore are an affront to a pure free market.

    Yeah and you conveniently clipped off the bulk of that post which was very pointed and insightful. You are simply taking one sentence out of context as if the was the only thing I said. Looks like that is you MO, to take the remarks of others out of context to unfairly attack them. Real classy

    He's employed (under contract) w/Clear Channel.

    He doesn't own the network on which he broadcasts and therefore doesn't have total freedom to say anything he wants; he has to abide by Clear Channel's TOC.
