Be advised that if the population of illegals diminishes significantly between now and Election 2008; that will likely skew many peoples' choices for President.

Right now I see Tom Tancredo as the harshest against illegal aliens, so he gets my vote. I also like Ron Paul a lot, but I don't think his stance against illegals is as tough as Tom Tancredo's.

Where is Ron Paul?

He wants to take our troops out of iraq and defend our own borders.

Did Duncan Hunter drop out. Hes the only candidate thats actually built a fence and enforced immigration laws in his district. He also keeps steely eyed focus on unfair trade, off shoring, out sourcing, H1bs and employers of illegals. It is the foundation of his platform

Now why is that?

Because he was sooo good on Law and Order?

Or possibly all his debates were he brought his issues to the forefront?

He's a MAJOR waste of a vote and of our time
