Just wish McCain would lose his senate seat. Weak presidential candidate and weak on important issue in this country.

Agree that democrats need to be voted out of office

1. to get rid of Pelosi as Speaker

2. remember SENATORS serve 6 yrs...we can't afford 6 more years of democrat senators voting on Obama Supreme Court nominees and other LIFETIME judges who Obama nominates; nor voting for Obama's programs and policies.

3. Governors will be in charge of each state's redrawing of voting districts due to the 2010 census. Don't let a democrat governor gerrymander democrat districts to guarantee an Obama victory in 2012.

REbalance..NO to ALL democrats, don't even hesitate.

If Jan Brewer hasn't won the rabid support of Arizona teabaggers after all her posing, she's a lost cause.

Add Teabag Nation to whatever other Republicans votes she had, and she's left no stone unturned for her primary...

It's not an Obama thing. It's just the way the country is going. We protect minorities above and beyond anything else. The people of California voted on Proposition 8, but you see what happened to that. Their vote meant nothing. And Governor Arnold is all for reinstating gay marriage. Isn't he a Republican?

Understand, please, that what is happeneing in our country has nothing to do with which political side someone is on. It's really something bigger than all of us. Our votes don't count. We can vote until we're blue...if the powers that be don't agree with our vote then it's cast out.

This is no longer a country for the people, by the people, etc. It's a country where we're lead to believe we can vote and make changes, but in reality, as a majority, our voices are never heard.

Gov Brewer not only successfully got the taxpayers' support for a sales tax increase, but is standing up against the DOJ. I say, Brewer for President 2012!

Bob, you have summed it up correctly. Sad state of affairs.

Having read the bill what struck me about it is that it is a message to stop ísanctuaryí policies by sworn officials who ignore immigration laws simply because they disagree with them and the bill provides that a citizen can sue any who do so. Officials are legally prevented from interfering with any process which would impede information leading to deportation.
To me, Americans have simply gone nuts and I have no understanding why any American would side against an entire state with people who are not only foreign nationalís but in the country illegally to the tune of 12 million people.
Our government has sold the future of America down the river in a treasonous act to gerrymander the vote of people who are not American citizens which is unprecedented on this scale in American history.
Our politicians will have America bursting at the seams with people from the Third World whose own failed nations are not our problem but which some Americans have a misguide compassion for. They would not feel this way if they knew how culturally self-centered Latinos are in Latin America or if they knew how the population explosion there is off the charts.
I guess when we have the population of India with the attendant shanty towns but with Latino style gang warfare which has already begun, then those same people who enabled it can blithely look on as entire cities are engulfed in violence whose scale will be unprecedented in American history; a civil war but over nothing and the result of endemic failure in Latin American culture. There are gangs all over Latin America but with no European Americans to blame it is obvious that the charge that it is institutional racism to blame for the state of black and Latino areas in the US is a hollow blame game to cover up an obsession with incompetence.
Brazil has 4 times the number of blacks as America in terms of percentage yet far fewer in the Federal Government and Congress yet the President is calling for a boycott of racist Arizona. Unbelievable.
