You remind me of a passenger on the Titanic. The ship is sinking, and you’re hopping around laughing because in 2 days you will finally get a reserved seat at the Captain’s Table. Whoopty doo!
Excellent analogy - I doubt that they get it even after this explanation. What I also find interesting is that the dreamies think that they will 'rule' the US once the "hispanics" outnumber everyone else - according to them 'White America' is shaking in their shoes, if you listen to them sometimes. If that concept was true, then the indios/mestizos would be in charge SOB instead of the Euro ruling class. They will continue to be servants of their corporate masters just like all the rest of us who have to work for a living, whichever country they end up in.

This whole election race debate is beyond unnecessary. This is not a race war, it is a class war, and the middle class always seems to be on the losing end these days.

Or was Obama just wanting to give them US tax dollars for nothing?
Unlike you, I would rather have those manufacturing jobs benefit citizens of THIS country, by remaining HERE. Mexico is a wealthy country. In fact, the wealthiest man in the world is a Mexican citizen. Why should we, a country struggling to survive, be responsible for economic development in Mexico?

Furthermore, why should we be blackmailed into supporting Mexico? In other words, if we send them money, they won’t send ‘so many’ of their citizens here.

According to Obama’s position papers, his immigration reform package includes doing “more to promote economic development in Mexico” as part of a solution to curb the inflow of illegal aliens. If elected, Obama would also push for reducing the cost and time it takes for an immigrant to become a U.S. citizen, including speeding up — or doing away with — FBI background checks.

Obama has also supported a bill in senate that if passed would have taxpayers help pay immigrant’s legal fees in becoming citizens.

What American would support moving jobs to Mexico?

More and more II lovers will change their minds as the horde steals jobs from them. Then and only then will they see what is happening. If they are siphoning Social Services themselves they better be on the lookout as more and more Illegals learn the ropes to get on the freebie band wagon. You are sinking your own ship. LOL that!

"Mexico is radically, substantively, ferociously different from the United States," Jorge Castañeda, formerly Mexico's foreign minister, observed in 1995.


Rural Mexicans have dominated the migrant wave, bringing a country-style sense of time and priorities. For Americans, a transfer of Mexican rural culture to our neighborhoods leaves many feeling overwhelmed.

"Certain Mexicans can subscribe to a series of rules, from traffic regulations to work discipline and punctuality; others can decide, consciously or otherwise, that they prefer not to," Dr. Castañeda wrote.
Illegal immigration exacerbates the natural tension in American society by injecting more change than can be absorbed – and by defying laws designed to control the rate of change. When immigration restrictionists protest defiance of "law and order," they reveal anger at the cultural revolution Latino immigrants bring – a revolution many U.S. citizens feel powerless to stop.
What Jorge Castañeda said above is what has fueled so much tension and anger toward massive illegal immigration from Mexico. It is scary to think what the future holds if Obama gives them amnesty.

We can help by placing a 50% tax on all remittances wired to Mexico from the USA.

I agree-however a few politicians have tried to do that. I believe one was from either NC or SC and they were called racist and every other name possible.

Why can't Mexico pull itself up by their own bootstraps like Canada. I dont ever remember Canada being as helpless as Mexico in providing economic prosperity for it's citizens.

Let's include a 100 dollar co-pay for ER visits too. Non-Americans only.
