Are you living the American Dream, you must think Bush is doing a great job.
What is the American Dream to you, because I see less and less of it everday.
Whose government? Do you really believe that everyone in the US illegally is escaping poverty and squalor? It seems like you have a myopic view of what an illegal is.

Do you see these two little things ' ' surrounding the term American Dream? They imply sarcasm.

Thats a specious argument at best. Its all about taking personal responsibilty for your actions. People intentionally broke the law by comming here PERIOD! Your attempts to shift the blame to someone else is just foolish. Next thing you know you are going to blame Ford and GM because they built you a car that can go over the speed limit, and when you get pulled over, your coing to whine about its thier fault for making you speed. RIDICULOUS!

If you were the ones footing the bills, I guess you might be annoyed, too.

Any American who doesn't agree with their bigoted point of view is either an illegal alien or unpatriotic. That is why andrea assumes you don't pay any taxes.

So let's all just face the truth. The US Government (again, starting with the President) opened this Pandora's Box and betrayed the American people, now the situation is out of control. Therefore, stop faulting the Illegals and start faulting and criticizing the true source of the problem...Your Government (starting with the President).
You are absolutetly right!!!!!!

Someone who is opposed to illegal immigration and favors strong enforcement of immigration laws is a "bigot"?

I have always paid taxes. I am an American and I do not see others as anything but people. I don't consider myself unpatriotic, but if being unpatriotic means that I stop seeing people as less than me because of Race, religion, poor, then maybe I am unpatriotic.
I agree with you blacknight
