Good. All those who are for illegal immigrants need to pay more taxes to keep them here and let us who do not want to pay for them get a tax decrease.

Look we are not horrible, evil, selfish people just because we do not want anymore illegals here. We would love to pay for everyone in the world to have food, shelter, healthcare, education,etc. but this is reality and WE CANNOT AFFORD IT!!!! We would love to be able to feed all the starving people of Africa BUT WE CANNOT AFFORD IT!!!!!

Don't you people understand that WE CANNOT AFFORD IT!!! Alot of American citizens cannot even afford to pay for their expenses nor their families' expenses.

Besides: speaking for just Mexico-------------it does need to grow up and take care of its poor people. We owe that dysfunctional Third World place nothing.

As for 1ATP: he is a Mestizo himself (part Apache) so he can comment on the 'breeding practices' of the (mostly) Mestizo.
Doesn't being a hungarian gypsy make you a peasant?
People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

I am an American of partial Hungarian lineage----------and, I self identify as an American.

As for being part Gypsy; I doubt it since I am Nordic White in appearance.

Needless to say: even if I was of 100% Roma (Gypsy) heritage...........I would still like it if the illegal aliens simply left.

Peasant was a term used to describe a category of people within a country who were usually provincial and subjugated by the upper classes in that they did farming and later on unskilled industrial work. They were unable to better themselves no matter how much work they did.
Hungarian gypsies at no period in history ever fit into the category of peasant. And if I am not mistaken, the poster you are refering to lives in the USA. For the sake of argument, lets say that some of his ancestors were peasants. That does not automatically make him one now because of his ethnicity. It seems like you support the old Asian Indian caste system. It is racist to call a contemporary American a peasant because of his forefather's alleged social situation. My ancestors were poor Cuban sugarcane farmers. They were peasants. I was born in the US and I am a college graduate. But according to you I am still a peasant, right. Your post was not only racist but it is pure claptrap, in my opinion.
Are you OK? What is wrong with you? Your statement went beyond the realm of silly into............?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

To be precise: my father (now a US citizen) is a member of the Szekler minority of Hungary---------they tend to be a part of the elite of that nation.

Think Brahman (sp) class of India whereas the Gypsies/Roma are analogous to the Dalit (untouchables).
