The reality remains, those people currently here without documentation contribute positively to the country, and they are not going anywhere. The question remains, do we build that infrastructure of opportunity or settle for a status quo which is clearly not working.
If you don't know the difference between a socialite and socialist, you are a prime candidate for the U.S. Republican debate team.
"America: Love It or Leave It" exemplifies the "either-or" (or "black and white") fallacy. Like another '50s/'60s slogan, the anti-Communist "Better dead than red," there are obviously more than two choices.
The term "game change," like so many sports-oriented terms in politics, is decidedly over-used. But the events depicted in the Game Change film really do constitute just that, though not in the way that my friend Steve Schmidt intended it.
