Commenting on the Dec. 15 guest commentary “Who really wants Palin to run for president?”:
Is Obama-care’s “individual mandate” — the requirement that all Americans buy health insurance — an unconstitutional infringement on individual liberty? Federal Judge Henry E. Hudson thinks so. On Monday, he ruled the mandate unconstitutional, saying it “exceeds the constitutional boundaries of congressional power.” The decision catapulted the controversial health reform law back into the spotlight, with Hudson’s decision earning applause from conservatives and arguments from the White House. The debate almost certainly sets up a Supreme Court showdown to resolve the issue.
Who wants to see Sarah Palin run for president, Democrats or Republicans? Palin recently embarked on a tour for her new book, “America by Heart,” amid speculation that she’s preparing a 2012 presidential run.
Now that Proposition 8 has been struck down, will gay marriage become the law of the land?
The Obama administration said this week it plans to send 1,200 troops to the border, and to ask for $500 million for law enforcement efforts, all aimed at clamping down on the flow of illegal immigrants from Mexico. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., whose home state of Arizona has famously taken the immigration issue into its own hands, quickly upped the ante and asked the president to send 6,000 Guardsmen instead. Will the show of force reduce illegal immigration? Is it a long-term solution to the problems afflicting border-states? Or is it a dog-and-pony show? Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk, the RedBlueAmerica columnists, debate the issue.
The devastation from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill widened this week, as the federal government put up to 19 percent of the gulf off-limits to fishing -- and experts warned that the plume of oil could spread up the East Coast. The incident has prompted renewed debate about the safety and wisdom of oil production in environmentally sensitive areas.
Does Arizona's immigration law go too far and preempt the federal government's role in controlling immigration? Will the law discourage illegal immigration or put everyone's constitutional rights in jeopardy? Ben Boychuk and Joel Mathis, the RedBlueAmerica columnists, weigh in.
