“Civilizations die from suicide, not murder.”
— Arnold Toynbee

No matter what the polls report, neither McCain nor Obama address the accelerating 20 million illegal aliens undercutting our laws, working in violation of our U.S. Constitution and degrading our language, culture, schools and medical systems.

Abetting this ‘silent’ McCain/Obama cartel, national media squelches every aspect of America’s most dangerous immigration topic.

Both candidates, while doing nothing to stop the invasion during their entire U.S. Senatorial careers, voted to give amnesty to 20-30 million illegal aliens in the June 2007 vote—with no idea of the ultimate number or the cost to American taxpayers. Both voted to double legal immigration from 1.2 million annually to over 2.4 million each year. Obama nor McCain promote any kind of a plan for defense of our borders from further illegal migration into the United States.

“About 70 percent of voters believe that controlling the U.S. borders is more important than legalizing illegal immigrants,” a new Rasmussen Report national phone survey reveals. “Only 21 percent think legalization is more important. Three out of four respondents said the government is not doing enough to secure the borders.

“Backers of Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain in the presidential race have differing views on immigration,” Rasmussen found. “Among McCain voters, 86 percent believe gaining control of the borders is more important than legalizing undocumented workers; only 53 percent of Obama voters feel that way. Nearly half of McCain supporters say they are angry about the current immigration situation, compared to just 19 percent for Obama backers.”

It most certainly does. Our demise will be self-inflicted.

Suicide is definitely how I would describe what is taking place in this country.

To be real honest with you, I am surprised that they were able to find 801 American citizens in Chicago to interview for the survey.

In addition to the national survey of 2,000 Americans, separate surveys were conducted in the metropolitan areas of Phoenix, Arizona (N=800), Las Vegas, Nevada (N=801), Chicago, Illinois (N=801), Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina (N=801), and Washington, DC (N=800).

Wow . . they are so bold they actually have no problem admitting it on line. Interesting. Thanks for the link.

I grew up there and while I no longer live there I still work downtown. For the first time ever I witnessed graffiti (spanish gang symbols) on several of the most beautiful office buildings.

The crime rates are astronomical and the numbers killed in Chicago have surpassed the numbers killed in Iraq. Chicago has been sued by DHS, not sure if it has been settled but for the first time ever raids are occurring there. Additionally, the city council is run by anchor babies.

I thank God everyday that I am not a taxpayer of Cook County because they are being robbed blind to prop up the sanctuary city of Chicago.

Many support immigration as it improves our economy due to production which is why politicians support it.
