I doubt it will happen because political correctness is to popular and the media elite is in support of an open border. The mainstream media would give protests against illegal immigration about as much publicity as the anti abortion protests get today. Most people will not touch the issue in polite company because they will be called racist.

If you say that word over and over again - "racist, racist, racist, racist", it loses it's meaning, like any other word would. So, let them keep using it.

In California, we've already taken to the streets by the hundreds. I attended every major protest within 100 miles from 2005 until I left California. But we cannot generate the same kind turnout of millions like the illegal alien amnesty protests drew.

People are too busy worrying about who will be the next American Idol and whether or not Marie Osmond should have been booted from Dancing With The Stars to get up off of their couches and get involved.

Trust me, I was at "Ground Zero" and the degree of apathy, even from those keyboard commandoes who claim to be vehemently against illegal immigration, is staggering.

Many people will talk the talk, but very few ever walk the walk.

Sadly, I don't think the younger generation can be trusted to "take to the streets". They have been systematically brainwashed by the socialist government schools, from K-12, then those infected by the universities are further taught to hate everything American. I fear they would just as soon hand the country over, no responsibility that way. Maybe not all of them, but from I see on a daily basis, the numbers may not be good for that kind of "sacrifice" on their part. So it may up to us old folks to get out there, canes or not!


Those very brave and courageous men and women in our military are the EXCEPTION! But they are fighting another war on a much more dangerous front.

It is time! If only we had an organized effort. I live within 150 miles of DC and would be willing to go there and protest with the rest if we had a large group. As one poster mentioned though, we are seeing an up rising in pockets all across the country. Between that and next falls election I think we will see a turning point. I just hope it turns in the right direction.

I also agree with the poster about so many of our young Americans being brainwashed in to American haters or preoccupied with nonsense shows to give a damned. It is soooo sad to see.

Will not happen. Our own law enforcement agencies will be on the side of the illegals, protecting them. Our own military will be ordered to march against the US citizens. So, I don't think it will happen. We will be overcome by occupation alone. The world is changing.

Negative thoughts, only bring negative consequences, have faith, be strong and never give up, because when you give up it is when you are really defeated!!

I totally agree..we are seeing many fissures as a result of immigration.I think two parties need to emerge and their figureheads come clean.The Marxist Republicans and the liberal suicidal parties.Bush and Huckabee are the former and Obama and his ilk the latter.It is time to have a BOSTON TEA PARTY off the web...
