Homage to a great news source
The thought just struck me that WorldNetDaily is a great news source, and I've never written a post to give it its props. Sure, they have to shill a little and sometime the news has an angle, but in the post-Dan Rather era, that cow has long left the barn.
In honor of this fabulous Web site, I am instituting a new category here, "Latest from WorldNetDaily," and I hope our other bloggers will take it upon themselves once in a while just to post a link to WND for any reason whatsoever.
To get the ball rolling, I'll link to a thought-piece on The candidate who can win in 2008, by WorldNetDaily commentator Rev. Jerry Falwell:
First, any presidential candidate who wishes to secure the evangelical vote, which is essential to victory for a Republican, must be a social and fiscal conservative. That's a given. While the mushy middle of the Republican Party will want a candidate to be nebulous on issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage and religious freedom, no Republican candidate can survive the primaries who is afraid of taking a stand on these critical social issues...
The construction of a 2,000-mile fence (which some estimate will cost $10 billion) across our southwest border, from San Diego to the Gulf of Mexico, guarded by enough of America's finest to stop the endless flow of scores of thousands of illegal aliens into this nation, must be the absolute commitment of our next champion. The bleeding must be stopped immediately.
Further, all illegal aliens who are convicted felons must be deported as a beginning. The remaining illegal aliens must be put into a lawful naturalization program with a reasonable time limit to learn English, meet the long-standing standards every legal immigrant has always met, pay taxes on all income (which they should be allowed to continue earning) and finally take the oath.
I have to say I disagree with Falwell here. First, I think immigration is a higher priority than "social issues" in deciding on a candidate for 2008. Second, I'm not sure at all about a "lawful naturalization program" that lets millions of people jump in line ahead of the people who have been trying to get in legally.
Nevertheless, Falwell's article is a valuable addition to the debate, and we at NOVA TownHall - like our brethren at WorldNetDaily - are nothing else if not open to free discussion, unlike so many institutions on the "progressive" side of the fence.
