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.

First, click on that link and you will be redirected to a page that has nothing to do with this story.

Second, the republican civil war continues and it remains to be seen who will eventually have control of the parties message.

Moderation and reason on issues like immigration, gay/lesbian equality and women's rights or an oppressive far right wing agenda that will doom the republican party to irrelevance.

The notion that Republicans need to pass immigration reform to win Hispanic votes from the Democrats is nuts. If Democrats thought for an instant that would happen, immigration reform would die faster than an Obama Budget.

he hit it right on the mark.some are not worried about the illegal alien support some actually want to save the country while all who support illegal aliens want to ruin us the rest of the way.

Republicans are the ones paying the cost's of illegal alien invaders. But they'll make up shit to try to pretend they want them to have amnesty, all the while working behind the scenes to stop it... It's all fodder. Don't think one illegal would vote republican if the threat to the welfare and freebies were threatened. I just laugh and watch the BS.. And watch foolish illegals thinking that they will be invited in.... Funny

actually, the way I see it is..

the total lack of moderation and reason where logic is concerned will doom the democratic party to irrelevance.

let me give you an example of what I mean..

WHEN unemployment reaches into the 30 to 40 percentile, the rage amongst citizens of the usa will be so great, guess where the rage will be centered? on the liberals who don't want to enforce the laws but want immigration reform/amnesty.

WHERE the debt is concerned.. whom do you think the rage will be focused on when the numbers reach into the 30 trillion? let me tell you this.. it won't be on bush anymore. guess who? the liberals who feel we should be giving money out like it was water. that's who.

give or take a few years, I think the hate for the liberals will be so great, yeah. they won't be too smart to speak up anymore.

reminds me so much of the ant and the grasshopper story. funny. the carefree, irresponsible grasshopper and the hard working conservative ant.

we know how that story ends now. don't we?

then, again.. my guess is - you liberals don't listen too well. probably don't even know what I'm talking about. the arrogance.

if you are not required to show id to vote like many are saying, then, how do you know someone is illegal or legal?

Lou is right again. Only rich, establishment illegal alien exploiters like Bush, McCain, Boehner etc. etc. are stupid enough to think that amnesty will benefit the Repub. candidates electability.

Why should your American citizenship have any special value? If you were born here, you did nothing to earn it. It was just a lucky accident. Be grateful.

Your concern for the law is touching. It's a heartwarming substitute for a conscience.
