Of course. Which is why you are both out of touch with reality and the people. Must be nice having a job where you get paid to ignore the bosses! Where can I get one!

Typical Republicans.

BTW I tried to correct the link but still having glitches with TOPIX.

Thanks for the correct link.

"Rep. Tom Petri's annual constituent survey found 56 percent support providing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants"

So 56% approve of unlimited DUIs for illegal aliens. Approve of illegal aliens forging at least 2 US passports. Any number of DUIs and forged passports can be wiped clean by filing a waiver, this is what's in the Senate immigration/amnesty bill.

What's also in it is, the bill allows persons who have been deported to come back into the country. So i guess 56% support that too. The people don't really know what's in the bill like the Senators who voted for it.

Illegal aliens rights vs. US citizen rights:

If you think that Republicans don't represent the people, and are out of touch, then how do you explain the fact that they keep maintaining their majorities in the House Of Representatives, the gubernatorial seats, and the 99 state houses ?

SOMEBODY must be voting for them in all those states, and congressional districts, and state legislative districts.

How do you explain all their majorities ?

The same way you are able to explain why we still don't have marriage equality and a decent immigration system that is fair to all people.

The same way they explain stand your ground laws that only apply if you kill someone like Travon Martin claiming you thought he was a gay basher, and not the abusive husband of la. woman Marissa Alexander.

The same way you explain why your church carries insurance just like the RCC to protect it's cash from child abuse victims.

Sure it was. And like most anti gays and xenophobes you didn't like the answer. Just as the New Republic didn't like me posting Bible verses that contradict their views and so revoked my privileges on their site!
