Immigration Roger Daniels Immigration and immigration policy have been an integral part of the American polity since the early years of the American Republic. Until late in the nineteenth century it had been the aim of American policy, and thus its diplomacy, to facilitate the entrance of free immigrants. From the s until World War II —an era of immigration restriction of increasing severity—the diplomacy of immigration was chiefly concerned with the consequences of keeping some people out and, afterwhen Congress made the diplomatic establishment partially responsible for immigration selection and its control, with keeping some prospective immigrants out. Sinceafter only seemingly minor changes in policy during World War IIand partly due to the shift in American foreign policy from quasi-isolation to a quest for global leadership and hegemony, immigration policy has become less and less restrictive.
Obama in pink, McCain in blue; income brackets run across the bottom, tax cut amounts on the left. McCain had declined to sign the pledge of the group Americans for Tax Reform to not add any new taxes or increase existing taxes.
McCain was one of only two Republicans to twice vote against the permanent repeal of the Estate Tax,  and has recently stated opposition to a permanent repeal of the Estate Tax.
He opposed accelerating the cuts insaying that he was not in favor of cutting taxes during a time of war. McCain explained himself by saying, "I voted against the tax cuts because of the disproportional amount that went to the wealthiest Americans.
I would clearly support not extending those tax cuts in order to help address the deficit.
Fine, if that's what we want to come up with. But stop the spending first. This was in contrast to McCain's historical emphasis on deficit reduction in place of tax cuts. Every time we cut capital gains taxes, there has been an increase in revenues.

His campaign website includes the statement that "The federal government spends too much money, squanders precious resources on questionable projects pushed by special interests, and ignores the priorities of the American taxpayer.
Every time the United States has become protectionist It sounds like a lot of fun to bash China and others, but free trade has been the engine of our economy.
Free trade should be the continuing principle that guides this nation's economy. John McCain will fight to save the future of Social Security and believes that we may meet our obligations to the retirees of today and the future without raising taxes. John McCain supports supplementing the current Social Security system with personal accounts — but not as a substitute for addressing benefit promises that cannot be kept.
And that's a disgrace. On January 31,he said, "I think there are some greedy people on Wall Street that perhaps need to be punished. Bush administration 's handling of the crisis. I will not play election year politics with the housing crisis.
I will evaluate everything in terms of whether it might be harmful or helpful to our effort to deal with the crisis we face now. I have always been committed to the principle that it is not the duty of government to bail out and reward those who act irresponsibly, whether they are big banks or small borrowers.
Government assistance to the banking system should be based solely on preventing systemic risk that would endanger the entire financial system and the economy. McCain went on to say he would entertain the thought to only give temporary assistance to homeowners for their primary homes, but not to others who owned homes to rent out nor to speculators.
He also proposed that mortgage lenders do more to help the economy by helping their customers. He suggested an approach that General Motors did after the September 11 attacks when they reduced interest rates for their customers.
They've been asking the government to help them out. I'm now calling upon them to help their customers, and their nation out. It's time to help American families.
