This is a Test

Even if President Obama's new policy of granting immunity to young illegal aliens is the wisest since Solon, that fact by itself misses the point...and by a wide margin.

We are a nation of laws.  While invariably cumbersome and inefficient, we abide nevertheless under a clear and well-established constitutional process for the enactment, enforcement, and adjudication of those laws.  Yesterday, President Obama brazenly circumvented that process.  Whether that circumvention will stand is an open question.

If we are also a nation still of honorable and courageous men and women, regardless of ideology or party affiliation, then this will not stand.

This is a test.
