So you're saying the vast majority of Hispanics support breaking the law.
Keep spouting this kind of arrogantly racist opinion, liberals, and we'll see what philosophy the Hispanic population support.
That's YOUR interpretation, dude, not what I'm saying. Could be the Hispanics are just following Catholic Social Justice teachings which say that people have the human right to migrate to another country in search of the things necessary to sustain their lives like shelter, food, clothing etc. If those basic human needs are not being met in their home country they have the right to come to a neighboring country in search of those things.

And, I find your calling my comment "arrogantly racist" is a huge laugh. What's racist about pointing out that the Hispanics are the fastest growing racial group in this country, a fact that may come back to bite the Republicans in the butt in future elections if they view the Republicans as being anti-Hispanic?

you mean turning a profit to pay back the 2nd loan... you know.. the 2nd loan they got to cover the 1st so they could say they paid the money back?

What it is is your claims of how a large group of people feel and why they feel that way. If someone here proclaimed the majority of black people support drug dealing because that's the way they were raised it would be loudly condemned as racism ... and rightly so.
Yet you feel your liberalism grants you the ability to make sweeping generalizations regarding the majority of Hispanics in claiming they support illegal entrance across our borders, possibly because of religious philosophies. There's no difference between the two. Racism is racism regardless of what side of the fence you stand, dude.

Might have happened sooner if the government had let the free market stabilize itself. There's no proof that Bush and Obama's bailouts helped. Regardless, we're a long way from turning the corner and if you think more government intervention is the answer you haven't been paying attention.

Whatever....keep those blinders on if it makes you happy. What I stated was a political fact of life. If a political party does something to anger a significant block of voters, they'll pay a price at the ballot box. Stating a political reality is not racism. When I brought up the social justice issue, I just mentioned another possible reason for their support. Again, that's not racism...just bringing up a possibility.

Isn't it interesting to hear a liberal back on his heels when the race card is slapped in his face?
Suddenly we float out pleasant-sounding terms like "political realities", "facts of life" and "possibilities".

Of course the conservative view of political reality is merely deemed, how did Jeneane Garofallo describe it? Oh yes, "Racism, straight up" :)

Hypocrisy ... nailed it!
