RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship

There are 484 comments on the WAPI-AM Birmingham story from Aug 16, 2013, titled RNC Calls for Immigration Reform, but No Pathway to Citizenship. In it, WAPI-AM Birmingham reports that:

The Republican National Committee passed a resolution Friday calling on President Obama and Congress to pass immigration reform legislation before the end of the year, but it did not include a pathway to citizenship for any of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country, unlike the bipartisan legislation passed by the Senate in June.

Democrats want them voting. Republicans want them slaving. Who do you think they'll side with. The Republican leadership are a bunch of neocon idiots.

Democrats have kept them slaving for decades! They just have a new master now, it's called the Democratic Party! They want them dependent and needy and unemployed and uneducated....it's the best way to keep them controlled. Just like when a kidnapped person turns to feel sympathetic and even on the side of their kidnapper. If you are totally dependent on them for your food, housing, education, everything.....you will come to side with them because they are the ones giving you everything you need, except freedom! You tend to forget that although they may provide you with what you need...it's because of them you have to depend on them at all!!! There are ALOT of blacks that have realized the truth and are right now trying to get through to the black communities. Unfortunately they have been told for so long that those blacks are Uncle Toms and not the ones to look up too....rappers and athletes that use drugs, beat their women, talk trash on women, talk violence against people, those are the ones they want them looking up too. Not the smart, successful, independent, AWARE blacks.

That is a problem. Taxpayers are paying taxes to fund drug agents to go into forests and cut down dope. All the time the criminal organizations are benefiting from the law against drugs that keep prices high.
American farmers could produce so much high grade marijuana that the price would fall so low that nobody in the world could compete. They would be selling high grade marijuana for $10 per pound and $9 would be state and federal tax.
You people who believe that you can legislate morality are so effing stupid that there is no way to beat it into your heads that you are wrong.
Leave it alone and continue to allow criminal organization rake in billions each year so that y'all can feel like you are doing something good. Nothing will change until you die of old age and allow intelligent people fix the problems that y'all created.
I was with you up intil you got into old people dying off. We will be gone soon enough you don't need to hope for it.:)
But I agree that one can't legislate morality. It was tried with alcohol and it didn't work. It won't work for marijuana. So far this fight has cost Mexico to have over 100,000 of their people to be butchered. It has costs lives here in the states. It's time to take a different approach to this problem and that would be to legalize it. Allow doctors to prescribe it. It's time.

So you're hoping for a War? That does sound like someone that was never in one. Either you're too young or you weren't brave enough to enlist.
In any case........ARE YOU CRAZY? That is the last thing we need in this Country. If you think that killing is fun then you are psychopath.
You really need to sit back and reevaluate who you are and who you want to be. Because the person that you portray yourself to be isn't a good one.

As far as the Bible Belt that is very easy to google.
As to legalization of all drugs....well why not under the prescription of a doctor. Really if they can prescribe narcotics why not those drugs that are currently illegal.
Oh and just to rest your mind I don't take any kind of illegal drugs. Never have and don't intend to in the future. I do have a drink maybe one or two times a year if that.
Just because someone can see the benefits over the disadvantages with legalization of drugs doesn't mean that they use the stuff.

It has never been easier to buy drugs here in the U.S. It was harder to find drugs back in the seventies when Nixon stated the war on drugs. This year alone we have spent nearly $27 billion on the war on drugs.

That would be 27billion towards what we owe plus more when you add in anything the Government might add into the sale of the drugs for themselves.

The only successful wars going on these days are the war on the taxpayer and the war on the middle class.

That would also be $27 billion out of the pockets of the drug war profiteers who contribute to political campaigns in exchange for perpetual war. We cannot win a war on anything when there are people in high places that want the war to go on forever.
