TRENTON, N.J. — Even though Gov. Chris Christie has dodged speculation that he’s planning to run for president in three years, saying his focus is on governing New Jersey, since he won a second term in a landslide last month, he has been outside the state nearly as much as in it.

A new national survey shows that the Latino population in the U.S. rose 47 percent from 2000 to 2011 and that the rate of growth in Florida was even higher — 62 percent.
The Pew Research Hispanic Center in Washington, a respected demographic research institute, found that the Latino population in the U.S. during those 11 years swelled from 35.2 million to 51.9 million. The total U.S. population as of 2011 was 311.6 million, meaning that 16.7 percent of people living in the U.S. were Latino, compared to 12.5 percent in 2000.

I am reminded of the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 where voters were either discouraged or denied access to voting stations in the South, especially Florida. Votes had to be recounted in many counties, and it turned into a fiasco. The election of 2000 had to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. I am concerned that the GOP wants to win this presidential election badly enough to tamper with voters and vote results, enough to swing the election their way as was done in 2000 and 2004.

The Department of Homeland Security posted in an announcement online on Monday that they would be issuing "unlawful presence waivers" to illegal immigrants in order to stop them from being deported. The catch is that the illegal aliens will need to prove they have a family member who is a legal American citizen in order to qualify for the waiver.

The News-Sentinel editorial cartoon of Feb. 23 hit the nail on the head. Who would've thought the core issues of the upcoming election would be the evils of contraception, abortion and homosexual "marriage" all wrapped up in our God-given First Amendment freedoms of religion and speech, especially considering our dire economy, its resulting unemployment and our loss of strength in the world.

Since last we met, a lot has changed in the GOP presidential
race. For one, the very left-leaning Jon Huntsman has "suspended"
his campaign, thus thinning the herd even more. Two more debates
have taken place, bringing the total to 4,291 or so, I've lost
count. And the coolest man alive, President Barack Obama, is
suddenly taking a "small government" stance, calling for more power
to help minimize the effect bloated government has.
