    Good point, IMO.

    Putting a lean on often just means people pre-judge you without even hearing your side.

    Not all Reps don't like welfare and not all Dems like welfare - for example.

    People are individual...no two are exactly alike.

    The labels are generalizations- reasonably accurate to a vague point. But people are more complicated that these labels.

    We are not numbers nor can we be pigeon holed. Many try to do that. Way to many. And they are wrong. Not my type of people.

Mr. Obama has arrogated to himself the power to decide which immigration (and other) laws are faithfully executed, and which are not.

    It requires expansion of the government performing that task. It requires bigger government in terms of enforcement of borders.

    Far to many pigeon hole as that is the width of mind they can relate to.

    If expanding the federal government has been the result of decisions voters have freely made, through their elected representatives, it cannot also be true that "necessity will always dictate" that expansion, as you claimed earlier.

    Also, the American people cannot give the federal government any powers, except by amending the Constitution. Unlike the states, the federal government has no inherent, general power to make laws and policies. As the Supreme Court has reiterated, it has only those limited and enumerated powers the states and their people saw fit to give it in the Constitution.

    Nonsense. What it requires is a President who wants to enforce existing immigration laws. Aliens continue to flood into this country illegally because Mr. Obama, for political reasons, wants them to. A few years ago, Arizona tried to enact SB 1070, a very modern, well-designed statute that required state officials to enforce federal immigration laws. Obama sued to prevent Arizona from enforcing them, on the ground his authority to determine immigration policy trumped the state's.
