Obama’s Autocratic Rule Emboldens Other Dictators
For centuries the United States has been the envy of the world. That’s why we have an immigration problem. People from other nations want to be part of this grand experiment. This was mostly true in the 19th and 20th century when we didn’t have a burgeoning welfare system. Dictators

In an interview with Piers Morgan, Justice Antonin Scalia stated, “Regardless of what my views as a Catholic are, the Constitution says nothing about it . . . the Constitution, in fact, says nothing at all about the subject” of abortion. Scalia continued, “Just as the pro-choice people say the
