Why does being against illegal immigration make Alabama a racist state? It is not immigrants that we object to at all. We welcome legal immigrants. It is a sad day in America when illegal citizens have more rights than legal citizens. Our laws and the Constitution are to protect citizens. The laws that illegals are using are very old laws that are still on the books meant for slaves. It is a sadder day in America when illegals can come and take freely from tax payers. It doesn't matter that we have lazy American's that won't work or people living off of welfare. At least they are citizens. It is childish to me. Just because you do what others are doing doesn't make it right. Calling Alabama or the people of Alabama racists won't change the facts. Illegal immigration is a real problem and must be fixed. The states are fighting back and they won't be backing down soon. I think the ones who spew "racists" at every chance are the real haters. If illegals really want a better life, they need to do it by the books. American's want a better life too. Illegals laughing in our faces only makes it worse too. Has anyone seen the pictures from their "protest" in Arizona? The American flag was on the ground with hate graffiti sprayed all over it. They were spitting on it too. They hate America and want it to be just like Mexico. They are trying a hostile take over. That is not acceptable and WE THE PEOPLE won't stand for it!

This is what people who can offer no refutation do. They try to dismiss you based upon some specious argument, like 'racist'. To that type I say: "Whatever. If you have no leg to stand on, get huffy, take your marbles and go home. We won't miss ya."

There is a MAJOR miscommunication here! If he is doing all of these wonderful things, why are they committing susucide in unprecedented numbers?!!! Obviously, what he is doing is not only not working, it is killing them!!!

You sound like some one from MSM who ignores these facts and comes up with others that don't really address the problem!!!! If these things are so great, why are more service men than in the history of our country committing susucide at unprecedented rates, and rates that are increasing daily?!!! I know, I'm a hater because you didn't address the issue. lol

As a racist you can spot racists easily. Just take off your sheet and look in a mirror.

O and that isn't a racist remark? Point taken and thrown in the trash. I look in the mirror an see a woman with Native American back ground an a mother with beautiful children that r raised to see people for their respect of others an not for race, religion, or disability. An they do respect Mexicans because their little brother is half Mexican. An their father walked out on them years ago with not even a good bye an a Mexican pick them up an gave them the world. So yes i support every race, just not stupidity. So call me racist but I'm far from it.
