The recent presidential election loss has many Republicans talking about immigration reform and the changing demographics of America. Several conservative commentators have suggested that the GOP should agree to an amnesty bill in hopes that will give the Republican Party an opportunity to compete for the Hispanic vote. This would be a fatal mistake. Giving illegal immigrants amnesty would come off as pandering and would not actually address the issues Hispanics voters have with the Republican Party.
Every election always seems like it is more important than the last, but this time it may actually be true. Americans will go to the polls and decide whether to keep our country on the same path we have been on for the past four years or to change course.
There is one fact that should make this an obvious choice: Americans are not better off than they were four years ago. From high unemployment to shrinking household incomes to a failed budget and a foreign policy disaster, American have a very clear choice to make.

The general assumption among the public is that the current policy arguments over Medicare are ones that mostly seniors should care about, but the reality is the complete opposite. The truth is that the group that will be most impacted by this debate are the young people that are just starting to pay into the Medicare system.
Aside from some cuts that are part of President Obama’s healthcare law, neither side had proposed any significant changes to the Medicare system for anyone that is currently 55 or older. However, what we choose to do with the Medicare system after that point and how we handle its unsustainable nature, will have a huge impact on the lives of the next few generations – and the Romney-Ryan ticket is serious about the impact on the coming generations.
Journalistic biases are often more about what is left out than what is actually said.
This morning’s episode of CBS’s Face the Nation was a classic example of the sort of journalistic malpractice that has led more and more Americans to tune out the Sunday morning shows.
