Will Mexicans living in U.S. sign up to vote?

Jun 30, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Scripps Howard News Service

“I do want to apply to vote. I'm a dual citizen and I know I can vote, but I don't think I will make it.”

As a second opportunity approaches for Mexican nationals living in the United States to vote in a Mexican election, efforts to boost participation appear to be falling flat. via Scripps Howard News Service

I think dual citizenship should be banned. you should only be allowed to vote in one country.

The USA population should stand in solidarity with the Mexican population who has had its elections sabotaged and stolen by the ruling corrupt pro-imperialist PAN party. Americans should understand how this feels, as it is likely the GOP stole the last 2 Presidential elections in the USA, Florida via corrupt GOP state officials and the GOP-controlled Supreme Court, and in 2004 by manipulating voting machines which falsified returns in OH, WV, IA, NM, NV and other states.

GW Bush is NOT the elected President of the USA. Gringos and Mexicans should unite in demanding real DEMOCRACY for both countries, since we all have essentially the same goals and principles.

The word "solidarity" is not included in the american dictionaries. They don't know about the existance of the word. Those whom knows about it associate it with communism, and will not touch it for that reason.

Democracy has an enormous weakness, which is the general stupidity of the population. In a well educated country where people does vote from emotions, there might be selected a leader that makes sense, but in most of the world, capitalism rules and with that people whom are valuing the surface more than the meat. "If it looks good - it must be good all the way". Democracy and capitalism doesn't work together. Capitalism will keep people superficial and the "democracy" will be reduced to "opressive democracy", which workd against the voters rather than working for (and with) them.

An example of democracy going bad is when the majority of people think that "the world is flat", and thus elects someone whom support their "knowledge", but has no interest in the people.

Most of the democratic leaders around the world are acting against the interest of the people and/or without the approval of the people, which actually makes those leaders enemies of the country they are ruling. That is called "high treason", but noone reacts upon that or can do only little about it, as everybody in the democratic organisation are covering up for each other, in order not to be touched themselves.

you are very mistaken on the word"solidarity", it is in the american college dictionary. And it is a form of socialisim. Which our liberals are trying to make this country. It "socialisim" has fallen on it's face before, and it will again.

yes, being that this dictionary is more than 50 years old. I guess you think america should bow down to communism and socialism. No, I don't think so. too many Americans are now waking up from their naps and realizing the mess that has been created and have had enough.

Democracy and socialism is a good combination, but democracy and capitalism is a decption. Problem is, that if the government tries to make people sleepy, by creating alternate realities (in order to protect itself), then no political system will work.

Another problem is that government rarely do what is expected of a government, which means to serve the citizens that chose it. The governments usually get bored rather fast and start occupying itself with entertainment of some sort.

There is not really any difference between a capitalist and communist government. They both fall by the leaders behind the philosophies. What would work though is to use technology together with a social democracy, where the government is focused on building the country, rather than occupying itself with foriegn affairs, that the citizens doesn't benefit from. With informational technology, it would be possible for citizens to keep politicians under control and constructive. With informational technology it would be possible to let the people give a vote on much more local and governmental issues, and not let a senate or a congress decide fully on matters.

With informational technology it would also be possible to control the news-media so that they stay objective and non-partical.

But this will never happen. Too many people protecting thier own interests out there, busily sucking all they can to themselves, having no sense of when enough is enough.

The world is not gonna chance and with that we are put in a choice; We can whine about it, or simply make the best out of our own lives with ourselves.

This guy will much unfortunately never be elected president of the US. The US people are simply too stupid to realise when something good passes their way. And he will possebly be shot by one of the many dirt-brainers there are in the country.

But if he is elected president... WAOUW! Then the US would very possibly get economically on top again and other countries might even begin to like the US!!!

Will Mexicans living in U.S. sign up to vote? I imagine so. After all, they're not required to prove they have a right to vote; anyone who questions their legal status will be shouted down as a racist or a racial profiler. As a white American, I have to show my I.D. when I go to the polls; non-English speaking hispanics don't, because they're protected by federal anti-discrimination laws. I wonder how many illegal aliens got Bob Dornan voted out of his congressional office down in Orange County some fifteen or twenty years ago, and replaced him with a hispanic woman. I was never any fan of "B-1 Bob," but he didn't deserve to get kicked out of office in a crooked election.
