Thanks for the help guy's!! Some of your arguments were right on the money!! My final thought on the topic is that Mandatory Quota's undermine the basic principles of democracy -

Thanks again for the help!!

IMO of course they do ! Anytime you manipulate the "democratic process" you undermine it period. It is no longer a democratic process.

Well, why not take it one step further. Why not say that 5% of the offices must be held by the drug dealers, another 5% by illegal immigrants, 11% held by left handed people, 13% by convicted felons, 3% by transvestites, and so forth and so on? Whoever came up with this quota crap should be a contestant on "Survivor - Join the Real World". Much like in the animal kingdoms, the strong should lead. Currently, and increasing number of the members of the human species has decided that "everybody should be equal" and there are no consequences for being a lazy, ignorant, F-up. Sorry, hate to be so blunt.

Your right jaxnbulldog - You can thank the U.N. for lobbying for quota's.

The whole thing smacks of affirmitive action. I thought that went away.

'Fraid you thought wrong my friend. It's back before the Supreme Court now - see my earlier post. I believe the ruling is to be handed down in June.

AnthonyR - good luck with your debate, and at the risk of sounding just like your English teacher.... "mandatory quotas" should be neither capitalized nor should there be an apostrophe as it's merely plural.
