    The conservative approach to fixing illegal immigration from our southern border is all wrong. We are being offered two false choices. The first false choice is the liberal model, what Obama is doing today. The second false choice is the Perry plan (insert other conservative plans.)

    The third choice that nobody is even considering is to turn our southern border into an economic zone. We can do this by;
    1: Relocate half of all U.S. factories built in China to southern border states. This kills two birds with one stone: It reduces U.S. dollars in China’s GDP being used to build up their military. Secondly, it places jobs on the border for mexican nationals, as opposed to middle America.
    2: By building factories in border states, U.S. collects taxes on the labor force, and companies.
    3: Mexican nationals would be required to cross into the U.S. daily. This means they would live in Mexico, spending their income there, improving the Mexican economy. There would be no reason for them to illegally cross into the United States. They can go home to their families daily. This would increase mexican border towns less dependent on drug cartel money.
    4: Implement the Perry plan for monitoring the border, and building strategic fencing. Basically, block off the border to manned crossing zones.
    5: And finally, declare war on the drug cartels, by asking NATO (yes, America is under attack) to join the U.S. in conducting operations in Mexico to eradicate (kill) drug kingpins and torch their plantations.

    an op-ed by State Rep. Ken Weyler Kingston Chairman, N.H. House, Finance Committee
    Endorsing Gov. Perry
    The polls have been pretty consistent for months now. Obama has reached a low that no president contemplating reelection has seen before him. We can be confident that the next president will be one of the Republican candidates that we have been seeing.

    The liberal media is showing their bias like never before. Obama was their creation; an obscure candidate whose background was never fully explored. So they are pursuing their agenda with dedication. Destroy all threats to the incumbent. Whoever leads in the polls go after first. The debates are trivial and superficial. This is just a “gotcha” game to embarrass each of them.

    Diane Sawyer led the news every 15 minutes about Rick Perry’s momentary lapse of memory as if it were disqualifying. She fails to realize that the majority of us have had similar experiences. Yet I don’t know of any of the rest of us who think there are 57 states. Why didn’t that get similar coverage? It is high time to look seriously at the Republican candidates. What are the backgrounds? What plans do they offer? What can they show for successful accomplishments?

    These are the reasons I endorse Gov. Rick Perry for our next president. Here is a man who showed a willingness to make the supreme sacrifice for our country early in his life. Right out of college Rick joined the U.S. Air Force to become a pilot. Having similar experience, I know how challenging that program was. He later became a state representative in Texas, then the agriculture commissioner, then lieutenant governor. He is now one of the longest serving governors of Texas, a state that rarely reelects their governor.

    He has shown us his plan for economic recovery, and what gives it credence is the job creation that has happened in Texas. Almost 40 percent of the last year’s new jobs were created in Texas.

    I have been a long-time state representative in New Hampshire. We have studied what other states have done when we encounter a challenge in our state’s government. It is impressive how often the best solution has been done in Texas. They have led in performance budgeting, and welfare reform, and other areas of governing. Rick Perry has been an important part of that state’s government for decades.

    Now that is a resume that deserves your approval. Let’s put accomplishments ahead of empty slogans that make no sense, like “This is the best country in the world and we need to change it!” Why wasn’t that questioned? Let’s stop paying attention to the media who would like nothing better than to destroy any opponent of Obama. Let’s do our own thinking and help our country to recover from the worst president in our history. We need good ideas, not empty slogans. Support Rick Perry in the primary, and for president. Some of these polls amount to “who have you heard about in the news lately?” Thank you.
