Their Goal: The neoconservative agenda
Established in the spring of 1997 and funded largely by the energy and arms industries, the Project for the New American Century was founded as the neoconservative think tank whose stated goal was to usher in a “new American century”. Having won the cold war and no military threat to speak of, this group of ideologues created a blueprint for the future whose agenda was to capitalize upon our surplus of military forces and funds and forcing American hegemony and corporate privatization throughout the world. In their statement of principles they outline a fourfold agenda:
1) Increase an already enormous military budget at the expense of domestic social programs
2) Toppling of regimes resistant to our corporate interests
3) Forcing democracy at the barrel of a gun in regions that have no history of the democratic process
4) Replacing the UN’s role of preserving and extending international order
(This all can be read in their own words at www.newamericancentury.org )
This sounds like it comes right from the board rooms of the Carlyle group, Or Chaney's Halliburton.

<quoted text>
I was a majority of senators, led by Teddy, who voted down an amendment to the bill that would have prevented convicted felons from getting the Z-visa.
Bush is wrong on this bill, but most of his help on this one are Dems.
Bush was always wrong when it came to illegal Mexicans because of the friendship he had with Vincente Fox, President of Mexico when he was Governor of Texas. His so called reform bill now, doesn't actually change anything, but it does give legal status to at least 12 million illegals who are in this country breaking our laws every day. And many of these people are definitely taking jobs away from true USA citizens. And the only ones fighting for them to become legal are socialist dems and a few stupid republicans who think they are going to get the Hispanic vote. Fact is, USA citizens of Hispanic heritage do not want the illegals here either. The people who want them are the likes of Barbara Streisand and others who exploit them by hiring them to do an number of jobs at their palatial estates and pay them minimum and below minimum wages for the privilege.Teddy was right this time, probably for the wrong reasons, but right nevertheless.
