Did you miss the American people shouting down the congress and Executive branch's last attempt to shove amnesty down our throats. The people have spoken and mobilized, states are on the march to stop the scourge that is the illegal immigrant

Think about it: any loud noise from a vehicle be it straight pipe exhaust, music, etc. give a police officer probable cause for a traffic stop.

It is best to 'fly under the radar' if one wishes to avoid trouble

The American people didn't shout down anything. Just a vocal minority making phone calls to congress doesn't mean most american agreed with them.

5 out of 50. You are not paying attention. Even my state the liberal democratic republik of Michgans Attourney General struck down a law that allowed illegals to get Drivers licenses here. Slowly but surely step by step

There are some here who suggest that illegal immigration is a "non issue" merely because it is not the Number 1 issue on the plate of the Average American.

I know of no one, least of all me, who ever suggested, in any fashion, that it was the Number 1 issue - but clearly, it is in the top 5 as these candidates travel the country.

Vocal minority!!! Funny, we shut down, phones, faxes, their email, protests, radio shows. Hundreds of thousands of people did it. Congress knew it wouldn't fly and wont fly in the future.

How did the media shut them out? How about the american public didn't buy or care for what they were selling.
