Which GOP Candidate Makes Sense on Immigration?

Presidential candidates from both sides of the political spectrum have been taking on a very busy agenda these past few weeks, and as expected, the immigration issue is taking over the discussion. It started with Hillary Clinton’s “policy speech” at a school library in Nevada last week in which she said she was for a path to full and equal citizenship for all undocumented immigrants.  Then, Jeb Bush gave a TV interview Monday on Fox News’ “The Kelly File”, in which he clarified he is for an immigration reform proposal that allows for a path to legal status for undocumented

Even Democrats Change Their Minds When the Issue is Aborting Baby Girls

The New York Times published a new analysis of ANES election survey by UCLA political science Prof. Lynn Vavreck which finds even many Democrats who say abortion should be legal under all circumstances change their mind when confronted with a specific act of abortion. Aborting a baby because it is the wrong sex appears to strike the most uniform bipartisan horror into the hearts of American voters: “Hardly anyone in the United States (only 5 percent of Republicans and 10 percent of Democrats) believe abortion should be legal in this case,” writes Prof. Vavreck.

Faced with this uncomfortable question, the chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, opted for an equally uncomfortable statement that she “support[s] letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved – period.”  Needless to say, Paul pressed his advantage,

Does Hillary Clinton Support the Extreme Abortion Position of the DNC?

Last week, GOP Senator, and newly announced presidential candidate, Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) suggested to reporters that they ask Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, if she supported the idea of aborting a “seven-pound baby.” Wasserman-Schultz quickly fired off the following response hoping to change the narrative: Here’s an answer. I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story. Now your turn, Senator Paul.
