That's what they want us to think, so we'll just give up and not believe in our freedom to fight and voice our demands on all of this.

Let me get this straight: You all are discussing an article about amnesty published on a website called "NumbersUSA" that advocates reducing the number of immigrants, that is, the article linked above comes from an anti-immigration website...

That's akin to quoting an article on the lower intellectual ability of African-Americans on some KKK website and believing the contents of the article to be true.

I am the last person to support amnesty, but let's keep sources in mind...

You act like you are the legal voice of reason up in here all the time.
If you want to use "Majority" as a bolster for your position then you must acknowledge that the majority voted for Obama to be our President.

And yes, he is the voice of reason in a pandora's box of misinformation and fear mongering.

C'mon now....

Are you really, truly, this nearsighted and without a shred of acuity regarding the issue of illegal immigration?

I mean, sometimes when I read your stuff, I feel like I have to be on Candid Camera or something.

Obama won't be happy until he has turned the USA into a 3rd world Communist Dictatorship. He's driving us in that direction nationalizing everthing in arms reach while doing nothing to secure our borders or enforce current immigration law. Yes, I do believe Obama is a racist and that he intends to divide this country over race. His actions (and books) speak for themselves.

So, because a majority voted for Barack Obama, that means that everything he does is right and what everyone wants? Come on now, people get elected all the time and start doing things in office that their voters passionately disagree with.

Exactly right.
We're not a democracy, the tyranny of the majority that is, we're a constitutional republic.
