I doubt it. He will be pandering for the Hispanic vote just like so many politicians. Strange since only 10-11 million Hispanics voted in the last election and we have over 310 million people in this country.

Besides, why does a politican have to be pro-amnesty and anti-enforcement of our immigration laws to gain the Hispanic vote anyway? It is pretty telling, isn't it? Not a coincidence that they share the same ethnicity of most of the illegals, is it? Naw.

They are few and far between, unfortunately.
Nailed it.

Oh, and for the pro-illegals...don't assume anything about what ANYONE here thinks because I used the word "Hispandering."

I guess there's no racism in the US, because black people get jobs and can eat at lunch counters.

My vote at this point will go to Herman Cain. So far he seems the best candidate. Perry has been way too pro-open borders all along.

But do racists hire them?
I lived down south for a while and I can say I knew rednecks who would hire anyone no matter how bad a worker they were instead of a black person no matter how good they were.
Out of curiosity though. What indicates that the military idustrial complex is racist or xenephobic?

I don't know. But I didn't claim that. Perhaps go re-read my post.

I know you didnt I was just asking because the person who did is one of the pro-illegals. Thought maybe you knew what he was getting at.

Why bother to vote? The last election I voted in was when I voted for Gore against Bush, and Bush was handed the presidency anyway, with a majority of the popular vote. The elctorial college has got to GO. The popular vote does not mean s(*& in this country.

I agree. I really like Cain. He appears to be the strongest on enforcement of our immigration laws and anti-amnesty. Time will tell as politicians have been known to flip-flop for votes. I really like him as a person also. He seems so down to earth when he speaks and is business orientated.
