Sadly it may just come to that if something is not done soon to seal our borders and have all illegals go home-one way or another.

If it ever got to a point where I felt that we were in an all out civil war- I of course would fight to defend our country-as I hope other Americans would.. Do I think we are at that point yet? No.

However- I personally wish that all illegals would go home and have the guts to fight their home country for the rights that they are entitled to there. We Americans have done it a few times and maybe they should take a lesson from our playbook that nothing in life is free. You need to work hard and fight for what is right-not cross a border or over stay a visa and demand rights you are not entitled to.

After watching the blow up between Russia and the Republic of Georgia (not our Southern state)..........I am quite a bit more leery of somebody in Mexico doing something very stupid to antagonize the USA.............. Why I say that is little ol' Georgia dared to go against Russia--------it may give some extremists SOB an excuse to start something too close to the USA. Watch Nuevo Leon.

No: what I am voicing is concern, not machismo.

I agree with this entire post. On many levels, maybe we need a civil war, or at least some form of civil unrest to get the attention of our govt. IMO

People pushed to a certain point of desperation will do desperate things, how do you explain any of the stories of "average joes' gone rouge that populate the news every day?

The economy is falling apart and IA's are seen as a significant contribution to this (whether true or not). When frustrations are high, all it takes is one person to ignite the powder keg.

That's probably true . .

On the other hand, in the New York City area because of its "safe harbor" status, illegal aliens will eventually breach a critical mass. What's the New York City area at now? 30% Hispanic? 35% Hispanic? Have you even been to New York City lately? I walked from the Bronx Zoo to Coney Island, and couldn't escape Spanish, with one exception, Black Harlem.

Early this year, the politically correct in New York called me, "Bigot", "Racist", "Indian Killer", etc., told me to "Go Home!", meaning Europe. Quite a slew of name calling to tolerate in less than a minute don't you think? All because I said, "They are not immigrants". Evidence that political correctness is a plague of stupidity is, if all that was actually true, I would've killed them on the spot. Indian Killer? Give me a break. Who is kicking the dog here?

I talked to a Puerto Rican fellow in NYC, and he despised illegal aliens.

As for us Americans of 'Euro' heritage' going home---------somehow I doubt that Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Spain etc. would go along with that idea.

Besides: the Hispanics would need to leave along with any person here in the USA who is less than 100% indigenous blood------determined by DNA testing.

In other words: those PC losers need to watch their manners------or the repercussions against them may become very ugly.

AZ Bear is right with that one. If we all had to go "Home" there would be no one left...

Anyways, this land belongs to the USA....moot point arguing that is doesn't. Whether we took it, won it in a war, or bought it....it belongs to us. Period!

How long do you think it would take those Latinos to make it into another Latin American sh**hole like where they came from? I say in under 1 year if all of the whites would leave. But then, what would happen to people like me, who are only part caucasion and have Latino blood? They already hate us and call law abiding Latinos coconuts and such.
