Blaming lawbreakers for breaking the law isn't scapegoating.

Being American should include respect for the law.

Being a bleeding-heart includes an incapability of placing any blame, for anything, on anyone who claims to be disenfranchised or exploited, whether or not such claims contain any semblance of validity. Being a bleeding-heart basically means one is a sucker. Unfortunately, as we all know, there's a bleeding-heart born every day.

How do i get a negative rep for being argumentative, rude, condescending?

Am i not allowed to argue my points on this thread? I believe there is a reason why most people who don't agree with the deport them all argument aren't many in the immigration forum. The deport them all crowd abuses the rep system by giving negative reps to anyone they don't agree with. Typical

Rep Attitude: You only get +rep when we agree with you, when we don't like your post because it goes against what I believe then we give you -rep.

I just HAPPENED upon this post, and couldn't help but overhear. I'm against illegal immigration...I do NOT advocate massive deportations, but I DEMAND a stop to future such illegal entry. I have been annoyed by many of your posts, but I do NOT use negative rep, as I think it is sneaky, cowardly, and unmanly (or unwomanly). I often disagree with people and tell them so--to their cyber-'face', not in cowardly, anonymous negative 'reps' (like the one I'll probably get for THIS post)...

Good to see someone who thinks rationally about it.

I get those anonymous negative reps ALL the time, but since I don't give a fig about the rep system it doesn't really bother me. IDGAF, if you know what I mean...

Kick them back to their own country! Damn, how can our government be so stupid? A bunch of unwanted savages in prison, and they don't know what to do with them? Shoot them! No other government would put up with this stupid nonsense.
