This counry is a Repesentative Republic. That means that each Representative does what their constituents elect them to do. My Republican Representative does what I tell him to do. If he hears from more people like me then the does from people who want illegals to be made citizens, then that is it. We d not owe illegals anything except a ticket back too their home country.

Do you have any idea what would happen to you, as an American, if you illegally entered any other country? Let's just say you won't be welcomed with open arms, and given welfare, healthcare, and a job.
Actually......that's how my sister got through college in England and Holland. She was an illegal alien. Went to school, received grant money, state healthcare, and had no problem finding work or an apartment. She did have to smart about it, but never had a problem.

Yes, I'm a big boy. So anyway, is there an answer to that question, or not? Because I really don't think that democrat thing is accurate. I know some beleive that, but I don't see how that is possible.
Banking is what crashed the Housing Market. I live right here at ground zero for the crash. People who had no business financing a scooter were buying million $ houses, with no money down, taking out another loan because the values went up $100,000 a week, then selling for enough to pay off both loans, and sticking the next guy, until the bubble burst. During that time my house,$109,000 in 1999 when built, appraised in 03 for $780,000. I took out an equity line (try to get one today) with no job, my wife and I started our own business that year, and dumped the money into that...and went to Europe 3 times. And bought 2 new motorcycles. Before I got in trouble, we re-financed and now I have a 15 year mortgage and it's 1/2 paid off. I got lucky. Lots and lots and lots of people here lost everything playin' the free money game. The shear volume of that kind of banking, crippled the industry. No more money to loan, no one paying the loan back. I like how they blame it on poor people who could not pay their loans. That is sooooo not the problem. First time home buyers did not riun the market. The market was not overrun with crackheads, and junkies all the sudden buying houses and not paying the loans. It was a greed driven system where everyone playing in the game stood to make a HUGE payoff if they could just get the paper signed. That is what killed the maarket. Not Democrats. Get real Jerky.

Hispanic Caucus? WTF? We got a Negro caucus too, but I can't find anything on the honky caucus....help me out here, why do the browns and blacks get preferential treatment?
It's all about Preezy Obama's new "WOW" Program, AKA "War on Whitey." He sets the Black's and Hispanics, along with the white trash women, so called academic's, and the radical homo's against the white working class. Add in some union thuggery and you've got a recipe for disaster. He's really been employing this strategy since 2009, but it came to light during the election.

The dumber the state the more likely they are a red state. On the other hand, Obama won Florida which has only 23% college graduates.
"According to a state-by-state breakdown by the Census Bureau, here are the top 15 states with the best college completion rates as of 2010. All of them have at least 43 percent of its young residents holding a college degree, but only two states have over 50 percent. D.C., which was included in the study, beat out all of the states with an impressive 68.8 percent.
Blue - Massachusetts 54.3% of the population
Red - North Dakota 50.8% of the population
Blue - Minnesota 49.8% of the population
Blue - New York 49.6% of the population 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Jersey 47.2% of the population
Blue - New Hampshire 46.0% of the population
Blue - Connecticut 45.9% of the population
Blue - Iowa 45.5% of the population
Blue - Maryland 45.5% of the population
Blue- llinois 45.3% of the population
Blue - Virginia 44.6% of the population
Blue - Vermont 44.5% of the population
Red - Nebraska 44.2% of the population
Blue - Pennsylvania 43.9% of the population"
So out of the fifteen states with the highest percentages of college graduates, twelve voted for Obama. And as for the nonsense some have proposed about liberalism being "cyclical", republicans have gotten the majority of the white vote in every presidential race since 1964.
Just goes to show you...... the more educated a person is, the more stupid they are. Education isn't, and never has been, a true measure of intelligence.
