Survey Results: Value Votes Immigration Survey

The results are in via FRC. Make sure to read the whole thing. Here are a few that caught my attention.

To values voters, judicial activism continues to be a priority.

1. In order of importance, with number "1" being the most important issue, and number "5" the least important, and using only one number for each issue, where would you rank the following issues?

Judicial activism

21%

Reforming health care

6%

Protecting man-woman marriage

19%

Protecting human life from abortion

37%

Stopping illegal immigration

17%


Interesting. For all the religious groups that are involved in the mass rallies, it is clear that there are plenty of good people of faith that find enforcement of our laws consistent with the Judeo-Christian worldview. I would have liked to have seen this question posed about legal immigration--Legal immigrants enter the United States as strangers searching for a better life for themselves and their families and they should be welcomed. What do you think? Leave your vote in the comments section.

3. My view of the requirements of Christian discipleship accords best with the following statement about illegal immigrants:

Illegal immigrants enter the United States as strangers searching for a better life for themselves and their families and they should be welcomed, not punished or sent home.

10%

Illegal immigrants should be treated humanely, but they are breaking properly enacted laws and they should be detected, arrested, and returned to their country of origin.

90%


The message is clear--secure the border.

6. The United States Congress should, if necessary, build a border fence along the U.S. - Mexican border and deploy U.S. armed forces:

Strongly Agree

59%

Agree

23%

Neutral

9%

Disagree

6%

Strongly Disagree

3%


The survey is still open, so head on over and put in your vote.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
