What a joke!

One of the main reasons there are so many minority
people behind bars is so they cannot vote in conservative
states like Florida. How do you think George W. Bush won
the 2000 election in Florida if not by Katherine Harris and
Jeb Bush purging the voter list of African-American voters
through use of questionable felons lists? Thousands of them.

"Harris's office had ordered the elimination of 8,000 Florida voters on the grounds that they had committed felonies in other states. None had. Harris bought the bum list from a company called ChoicePoint, a firm whose Atlanta executive suite and boardroom are filled with Republican funders. ChoicePoint, we have learned, picked up the mistaken list of faux felons from state officials in - ahem - Texas. In fact, it was a roster of people who, like their Governor, George W, had been convicted of nothing more than misdemeanours."

No amnesty will ever happen?
It already has. Reagan amnestied 3,000,000 illegals.
You ever read any history?

The mind of a conservative is a wonderful thing to waste.
