    Hi Rich and Martin,

    Well done message. Is all politics phony? Does it only reflect the phoniness of the electorate who loves punching politicians while they complain about issues that no one wants to solve.

    Martin, ponder this. I still can’t figure out each candidates position on illegal immigration especially McCains. Phony or not, Bush and McCains plan is a decent start really. I mean Teddy likes it so go figure. Or is it that this issue transcends conservative or liberal, sorry folks.

    See you all soon.

    Migration is a natural process dating back to antiquity. People, and indeed all mobile life forms, migrate toward those places where resources are more plentiful. Man has the ability to thwart that natural process, and he does so to protect his own standard of living. He always has … even in Biblical times, when there was not sufficient pasture to accommodate the stranger.

    Should be expect any of the candidates to solve a problem that has plagued civilization for thousands of years? The answer of course is a resounding “yes”. We have the Nobel prize-winning economists who can advise the next President. All we need is intelligence coupled with true political “leadership”.
