That's a lot of Catholics for the atheist, liberal America haters to deal with.

LMAO...what? Don't make me laugh.

You ain't gonna be on top of sh*t. White people run this whole shebang right now, so why aren't YOU on top while the time is most optimal? Please...you're on the bottom now and if and when the Hispanics have more power, you'll remain there. If there was any chance of you being on top, you would've been there already. Gimme a damn break.

"People like me would be at the top." SMH...yea right.

As for me, if white people can't hold me down now, why would it stand to reason that a white guy with the Spanish surname could do it?

Like I said, I'm not worried. You are though, but that's your problem. I'm not getting in the middle of that.

It is not a question. The US WILL be dominated by Hispanics.
The legitimate question is: how will this affect American culture and economy?
So far ALL Hispanic countries failed. All.

Based on the law of averages, if Joe Schmo American asks why illegal aliens can't come to the United States like his ancestors did, conceptually they have. Most of the time (unless Black), they won't have any idea how their ancestors got here, but still want to attach labels like "legal" on it to make themselves feel better. I've researched my family history extensively (don't believe the stories passed down through generations, they're often wrong or misleading, go for the archived documents and apply some critical thinking), finding several passenger lists, but never any landing or immigration processing records.

Citizenship documents I have for ancestors and their families definitely show the residency requirements being ignored, and there wasn't even attempts made to conceal it. It was a local deal worked out with the presiding judge in the community, often the same national ancestry as the immigrant themselves. I can say it has no comparison to what a legal immigrant has to go through these days to naturalize.

That's not even close to being true.

Interesting part is that it started OUT as a Hispanic country. Spain reached here in the 15th century, first serious English settlement in the 17th century. There was, at one time, a real possibility that the major ethnic group would be Hispanic. Imagine if the Sephardic Jews had fled here instead of places east of Spain. Think how different our culture might be.

Spaniards don't perform genocide. Anglos do.
