It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

I live in WA, and we have to be ever vigilent. It is interesting to note that our local newspaper, Seattle Times, makes no mention!!! But we know about this! This won't see the light of day, trust me!

American land is not collective property. The claim that “we” have the right to decide who is allowed in means that some citizens–those in the group with the most votes–claim the right to prevent other citizens from exercising their rights. But there can be no right to violate the rights of others.

true to form

libtards want to give non-citizen illegals tax money for college while they shut down active military tuitions to college spouting that the budget cuts take away money to pay our own military for higher learning. just buying the next batch of libtard voters, but they are making enemies of the citizens they plan to put weapons in their hands and die for them. could backfire if these elitist commies keep it up.

The libs have been building up their armies at the expense those who work hardand pay taxes. The gullible and ignorant will continue to press for a larger and more intrusive govt. Our children will never know what freedom means. It's over. The govt. must be reduced or this country will never survive.

Committee to Save the GOP: Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Become Inclusive to Gays, or Keep Losing

The Republican National Committee’s Growth and Opportunity Project, formed last year to analyze the party’s 2012 electoral defeat and plot a path forward, is recommending softening some of the party’s conservative positions — or at least how it communicates them.

The report, to be released at a press conference Monday morning at the National Press Club and distributed to reporters late Sunday for review, calls for the quick passage of comprehensive immigration reform legislation and a softer tone on gay issues.

More than anything, it is a rejection of the politics of “arithmetic,” as RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will say when he announces the report’s recommendations in a thinly veiled shot at Mitt Romney’s 47 percent comments.“The RNC cannot and will not ..write off any demographic, community, or region of this country.”

“We must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform,” the report states.“If we do not, our Party’s appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only…If Hispanic Americans perceive that a GOP nominee or candidate does not want them in the United States (i.e. self-deportation), they will not pay attention to our next sentence.”
