Everyday there are more press releases on the war on illegal immigration and the laws being passed to rid our land of illegal aliens. The daily increase in laws passed represents the limit of our societies tolerance.
I never thought I'd see patriotism manifest itself again after 9/11, but this country is really starting to come together as one!

I'd like others to post their local and state success stories.

Default election time

It might be because it is election time and that is the current hot topic. It also depends if the press keeps up the coverage.

I was going to look into putting an ad in our local paper for NumbersUSA to alert more people. If maybe a few people could donate money to put in ads in their area it would sure help. Maybe Craigslist is a good place to get like-minded citizens to donate to spreading the word.

i think the citizens should band into "tribes" and have reserved land, or "reservations", where we can legalize gambling and live happily.

call it what you will. the point i was trying to make is that the white body that makes up modern "america" are immigrants as well. i do not understand the logic behind supporting our treatment of the native americans, while at the same time treating a fellow immigrant culture (who probably were natives before our time) like theyre the sole evildoers. how hypocritical are we going to allow ourselves to be?

You people really need to get over the past. The citizen of today did not do what was done to the Native Americans. My family wasnt even here. We came LEGALLY!!!!!!!!! And demanded nothing. Unlike the illegals of today.

Hey you like it so much, why dont we ship you all the unpaid ER and birth bills and leave it up for you to pay. Oh and YOU can pay all the ESL and free lunches as well.

tell you what... the "illegals" will keep coming over here, and in a few generations, the "american" can get over the past. oh, but YOU are feeling the effects NOW... boohoo, if you cant have sympathy for the actions of your anscestors, why should anyone have any sympathy for you?
