Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - In 1986 the Reagan administration worked out immigration reform for the current times… and future generations. So why would the current congress want to try and fix something that isn't broken? And even if it was an issue they needed to address, good luck trying to get them to propose a solution that lasts for more than four years, much less "future generations". All they're concerned about are quick fixes that will look good when they're running for office again. Check out more in today's Founders TV and be sure to sign up for a Founders Pass!
"It may seem to many readers that as I have elaborated my initial hypothesis I have step by step deprived myself of very nearly all possible argumentative allies. But is not just this required by the hypothesis itself? For if the hypothesis is true, it will necessarily appear implausible, since one way of stating part of the hypothesis is precisely to assert that we are in a condition which almost nobody recognizes and which perhaps nobody at all can recognize fully. If my hypothesis appeared initially plausible. it would certainly be false. And at least if even to entertain this hypothesis puts me into an antagonistic stance. it is a very different antagonistic stance from that of, for example, modern radicalism. For the modern radical is as confident in the moral expression of his stances and consequently in the assertive uses of the rhetoric of morality as any conservative has ever been. Whatever else he denounces in our culture he is certain that it still possesses the moral resources which he requires in order to denounce it. Everything else may be, in his eyes, in disorder; but the language of morality is in order. just as it is. That he too may be being betrayed by the very language he uses is not a thought available to him." - Alastair MacIntyre
