all who care for the country and the next generations should be against this bill.

there is a good immigration bill coming,it is forcing the loser dems to keep the promises of 86. that alone will sovle the problem real fast and in a hurry,we need a bounty ging citizens rewards for turning in illegal aliens.

if they want to reward illegal aliens how about get them to turn in all they know and their employers,that would show they have some morals.

" Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida argued this morning on "This Week" that a key provision of the bill, the so-called "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants, would not give anything away".

Sure it does Senator, it gives or sells our American citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens that broke our Immigration Laws to get here!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

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.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnestybill like this."

-- Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

DEMOCRATS ARE LIARS!

"The agreement we just reached is the best possible chance we will have in.
years to secure our borders, bring millions of people out of the shadows and.
into the sunshine of America".
May 17, 2007.

You are referring to a neocon platform. Those are pretty much non issues for most tea party groups, although I would admit there are some neocon groups.

Tea parties, in general, see those issues as state issues as per the 10th amendment. Like the gun, which is specifically mentioned in the constitution, is regulated by the states. The supreme court just reaffirmed the state's ability to regulate guns and marriage.

As per healthcare, the federal government shouldn't be regulating how a free individual, being a doctor, conducts his craft.

Like many bills, this bill has special interests behind it. Mark Zuckerberg financed much of the advertisement promoting the bill.

The question Iīm asking myself is this one:
Is Paul Ryan reall the reincarnation of Pinocchio
and is his nose going to grow as he comments
about what Republicans are planning for, in
terms of offering citizenship. The Tea Party
people are outright boring when compared to
Pinocchio- I`m sorry: Paul Ryan.
What do they even know about what is good for the
country?The exisitng gang of eight bill has the
flaw that it has been loaded with too many things.
But at least it there to be looked at openly as
opposed to the nRepublicans dealing behind closed doors which leaves a bad impression.
They knew this topic was going to come up- So, why
didnīt threy write a bill of their own in time?
The answewr to this is: Because they wanted totake the senate-bill apart and trash it, without
being subjected to criticism themselves.
What a cowardly and dishonest approach.
The type of individual who misuses charity
in the worst ways is actually the type who
gets in legally and then starts pulling tricks.
All those simple people who get in- a lot of them-
wouldnīt want to be a burden to the government.
So, instead of seeing them as a problem, Iīd say:
"Well, great- hereīs a bunch of people willing
to work hard if they get a decent deal".
I believe this to be true,but somehow nowadays
U.S. has turned very fearful and pessimistical.
Immigrants are a problem everywhere in the world,
but by seeing it only as a problem and by demanding that x- number of conditions be fulfilled ,the only
thing thatīll happen is that the problem will get
much worse. So. Tea-Party-people, in that sense:
Just go ahead and make my day!

I think you're right but unfortunately there are many neocons in the R leadership who are too stupid to see that. McCain, the worst presidential candidate I've ever seen, is one of the neocon ringleaders. The people who follow his lead definitely need their motives and intelligence questioned.
