You see Mexicans in California because we purchased California and the entire Southwestern United States, from Mexico.

You've never heard of the Manifest Destiny? What makes you believe we have more of a right to a presence in the Southwestern States than Mexican/Americans?

Secession! What a crock! Try to imagine the outcome of ANY state seceding. Remember, No federal money. The federal government takes back all it's toys. Of course, you won't be able to trade with the U.S. and there's a good chance that we'd blockade your ports and points of export. Oh, and when the government of another country decides to acquire your state as a new source of cheap labor, well, you're on your own. Get real! I can't believe that I would even have to point those things out!

Then why did you vote for Obama?
It was Romney who offered a way to save SS and Medicare. Now we'll lose them both and states will secede as a way of escaping Obama's crushing debt, communist dictatorship and death panels.
Romney offered a way to save SS??? Oh yea. He said take all that money and give it to the koch Brothers, and tell all the elderly people who paid into it for decades, the money is gone, you are on your own. Great plan there. That really saves it.

50 percent of Hispanic women are having kids out of wedlock to get onto welfare. Hispanics have A 50 percent high school drop out rate, 4 times higher high school drop out rate than whites and twice as high as blacks. Hispanics have an average IQ of 82. They join gangs and end up in prison because the parents have ten kids when they can afford to have one kid and do not have the time nor money to raise their kids, so they look to gangs to feel like they have a family. So who is going to pay for all of this? How many people are stupid enough to pay the majority of the population to be on welfare and commit crimes and start gangs and pay more and more taxes for the number one spending item for the states to be Hispanics and blacks from welfare families warehoused in prisons?? Are you going to pay for it? The baby boomers are old and retiring and on the government too. Who exactly is going to pay for all of it????

The federal government is bankrupt. They won't have any money to do much of anything. They spent it all (and then some) on healthcare and foodstamps for more than 47 million people not including for millions of illegals and unemployment benefits. Some states will secede, because the alternative will be starvation and no healthcare.

The Fact remains, Hispanics and were in California and the Southwest before they were organized into American Territories and then States. You, if you're living in California, you are occupying their lands.

I don't know how old you are, but I remember Apartheid here in America and today we're less than 50 years away from those social policies that forbid Blacks and Hispanics equal educational and economic opportunities.

Some of you who weren't here to see Apartheid in America have a difficult time understanding the effects of generations of exclusions on Minorities in America. Sinister as it may sound, the country was designed to be this way, economically, multiple classes of citizenship. I don't think we intended for so many white people to get trapped in the folds.

This is meaningless spam.

The native Americans were here before Hispanics. so the Hispanics are occupying native American lands.

The truth is, it is liberals who hate America who are the ones obsessed with race. The conservatives are.more concerned with losing what makes America work - freedom and capitalism.

Spanish settlements in what is now the United States were of three mutually reinforcing types: the mission, the presidio (fort), and the pueblo (town). The importance of each varied from place to place depending on the terrain; the receptiveness of the Indians; the behavior of the priests and soldiers; and the aggressiveness of the Crown's enemies, whether Indian or European. Ideally, the mission would instruct the Indians in European ways and religious beliefs; the presidio would protect priests and the neophyte Christians from adversaries and rebellions; and the Hispanicized Indians would join settlers in the pueblos. Although rarely functioning in this ideal fashion, such institutions embodied Spain's strategy for peopling Florida, Texas, New Mexico, southern Arizona, and the California coast.

Not to say you're wrong, but the Spanish Settlements were nothing like the English Settlements that would come later in reasoning and influence with the Native Nomads for inhabiting the lands of the American Southwest which was known then as New Spain.

But with what Military do you plan on using to blockade with?
The Military supported Romney over Obama by 2-1/ That why the Democrats did their best to suppress it.
