Immigration and "left"

The immigration debate is strange in many ways, but here is one more example.  If you favor acknowledging the realities of market supply and demand, desire less government intrusion in people's lives, and argue that giving individuals more freedom and opportunity will make the United States stronger and more secure, then that means you are "moving leftward."

Mr Weeks :

I am an optimist, I think that President Obama is stopping the accelerated decline of the USA, that we saw during the Presidency of George W. Bush.

James Carville, the funny guy of CNN wrote a book about the next 40 years of Democratic Party Hegemony. I hope that he is right at least for only 10 years more.

Can you imagine the USA in the hands of the present Demagogues.

I am studying the modern American Demagogues - I hope that I do not offend you or any of your readers :

The ( Irish and German ) Catholic inside Great Demagogues : Father Charles Edward Coughlin, Senator Joseph McCarthy, Tim McVeigh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, Tom Tancredo, Jan Brewer, Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler

@Greg:

While I concur that the cited weirdness is especially acute in the immigration debate, I think that it in general seems to be reflective of our politics in general at the moment.
