i say it happens in order to not invalidate what some peoples experiences have been.

but i say that there is not a mindset of a reconquista in the sense of a unified takeover by some large group of mexicans.

its just not that.
i repeat, that will NEVER happen.

this reconquista is a boogey man.

A couple of posts back you said "there is no reconquista mindset" and now you say there are a few? Which is it? Are you denying those signs at the pro-illegal rallies to?

Go ahead and stick your head in the sand in spite of all the evidence then. You are right about one thing though, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN as real Americans won't allow it to. These Mexicans you speak of are actually Americans of Mexican descent. I believe they are called Chicano Nationalists.

I'm sure the military would get involved and it would be over as fast as it started, if they ever did actually try and take over an area.

Before this escalates to a full blown flame war, I'd like to ask everyone to calm down.
Yac.

Thats a proposterous idea. Powers that be will just simply laugh it dead to the ground. Back to the drawing board for you.

Elites have all this power behind presidents and theres really little you nor i can do about it. Remove Obama by all means, all they'll do is put another puppet in his place to do their biddings.

I'd love to see some of this evidence of the elitists in control...

If true revolution (secession to Mexico) broke out in the southwest the military would be there in no time. We all saw what happened last time a bunch of people decided to break away from the US now.

The lack of historical knowledge and understanding boggles the mind.

That land the Romans had - it was stolen from the Neanderthals!

You would have told the Indians watching the ships come in from Europe "Don't worry, it's not what you might think...."
