Uh, yeah.
Or, White Spanish.............oh, they ain't 'Hispanic' (none of the 'correct' Indian heritage----Apache, Navajo, etc. do not count).

The above was dripping sarcasm.

As thoroughly distasteful as I find the idea of voting for John McCain, this election may come down to (at least for me) a vote AGAINST Obama rather than a vote FOR anyone else.

And yet what will Mccain do? He has promised the same thing....he may have backed down a bit (as had obama), but when pushed comes to shove he still believes in amnesty --- or at least the votes he thinks amnesty will give him.

Kucinek, Romney and Ron Paul were the best bets on this issue. And look what happened? A dem, and two reps, all were silenced and crowded out for two nominees that both feel the same way towards amnesty. That may be one issue, but it is a damn huge issue for two 'polar opposites' like obama and mccain to share.

Anyone still believe we have a two party system?

No-we need a viable third party but not enough people will give it a chance. Too many poeple view it as a "wasted" vote. In 2000 and 2004 I voted third-party/write in because of the illegal alien invasion. Looks like I will be doing the same in 2008.

Thankyou. I was literally a toddler but some memories can never be deleted. I am grateful that this is one of them. My grandma was an awesome, courageous woman who lived through and taught me a lot about the depression, Dr. King, the civil rights movement, and having the courage even in the face of opposition and adversity to stand up and fight for what is right.

Of course she wouldn't. All of them are hispandering because they have already mapped out the future of a globalized, hispanic majority America.
