Again, sounds like us and the Native Americans.
Yeah, and the native indians fought just like we are doing. So what is your point?

Bwahahahahaha! I didn't know that your family had many generations in 40 years?

America would force sterilization on Native American women by saying they had "bad blood" and needed to be checked out or when they went in to give birth would perform the operation or even take their children until they consented.

Let's look at the time line for forced attendance to boarding schools. It went all the way up until the 20th century.

Tell you what, why don't you dig up some dead Americans who were alive back then and complain to them? None of us alive today were even born back then.

You weren't alive in the 70s, 80s, 20th century?

Look, I know what you are trying to do here and I have heard your blame game spouted by others before. It doesn't work on me.

The whites, Asians and others will leave and let them have their squalor. The federal government will overextend itself until it collapses entirely.

Hispanic demographics by 2050 will achieve for the states what the Civil War failed to do.

WTF This is ridiculous. It is crap like this that gives ammunition to the amnesty crowd to call us xenophobic or racist.

Fact is that there are four dem. congressional districts that are in play. In a recent Grand Canyon State poll 67% of likely voters plan on voting Republican this Nov. 2nd. The poll went on to say that both Mills and Brewer have more than a 7% lead over dem canidate Goddard in the Gov's race. The poll also went on to say that both McCain or Hayworth would defeat a dem canidate by double digits.

So it would seem that dems are going to lose huge in Arizona. You can imagine if dems can't win in Mass or in New Jersey they are not going to fair very well in AZ. Even in liberal strongholds such as Flagstaff Rep and Independent voter registration is way up while dems continue to lose voters.

You brought it up in the first place. I gave perfect examples, I don't know what you're talking about.

Sorry but I wasn't even close to being born 40 years ago and accept no responsibility...although I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about as I was referring to the bulk of the conflict which occurred up until the last Western Indians were defeated at the end of the 19th century. Sure, the white man wronged the Indians...well at least the most recent tribes of Indians that had in turned wronged their predecessors.

Whatever it is you are going on about 40 years ago though, no one in my family had any part of it.

But the thing that confuses me when people always bring our past with the Indians up in the illegal immigration conversations is what is the point? What are you proposing here? That we just roll over and try not to preserve the cultural linguistic identity of the country? Because to me, when people use the case study of the Native Americans falling to invaders it serves as a wake up call that we should defend ourselves just as the Indians did.

2050? I thought the Mayans predicted the worlds end in 2012?
