We all plan to move to wv soon so I have been reading the blogs today and find all this very interesting. I live in Ca and I'm from Maryland but have been away most of my adult life. We find it hard to even get a job unless your bilingual here. My soon to be daughter-in-law is a being turned down for jobs in her field which is medical billing. No public interaction really necessary. Fight the good fight, lol we don't want them to follow us out there.
We need to put a stop to this nonsense before they ruin the best country in the history of the world. That means defeating every one of the wacko bozos who support their illicit activity or condone it, along with their ultra right allies who only want cheap labor at the expense of all the rest of us, our childrens' futures, and our long term prosperity. Fortify the borders, build the fences, round them up and start up the busses. It only makes sense.
Franklin D. Roosevelt boated millions of them out during the depression. Are we going to wait for things to get that bad before we get smart and nip the problem in the bud?

I can't stop it, but if we ever get smart and start electing populists
to government instead of the elitist @ssholes who pay little attention to the wishes of the majority and who are more concerned with special interests, then it will be solved in short order.

And therein lies the rub. The majority WANT big government in their lives. They WANT elected officials that will take away from those nasty rich and give to them. Bottom line is that they WANT to be given something for nothing, because they are ENTITLED to it!
The change has to start with us. Telling our friends and neighbors the truth. Not hiding behing the veil of political correctness that makes us ignor ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, calling them "undocumented workers" instead. It began many years ago with the decline of government run education. We continue to fall further behind the world. We "graduate" kids incapable of thinking on their own, or reading and understanding somthing other than what is spoon fed via Mtv. Instead, they busy themselves with mind mush TV shows that hold their attention while the country slips away. An ignorant, unarmed public is easy to control.

I believe the elitists you speak of are the "nasty rich". Actually they just want to use you to get elected and then throw you away when you're no longer useful. It's not the poor folks who are standing in your way. You don't think your "big business" Republican friends believe in all your causes do you? They don't want to see Roe v. Wade overturned and couldn't care less about your anti-gay marriage views. They just want to string you along so you'll vote to keep their taxes low. They love the illegals since it keeps your wages down. Dream on if you think you'll be getting any real help on this from your Republican overlords.

No. They are not. By the government standard, I am "wealthy" because I make $170,000 a year. The elitists are wealthy to the point that they do not play by the same rules they force upon me. They have teams of lawyers, accountants and politicians that ensure that they pay no taxes, or very little.

Perhaps you can point out the post I made that indicates I'm a republican... or support them- or the democrats. I don't disagree with you that, like the dems, they have no use for the voting public once the election is over.

The issue is to elect conservative leaders not special interest people. We can totally see what democrats are doing to us now as they all fight over health care, when over 60% of this nation don't want them involved in. They are not even listening to what we want. This is America and I really think people have forgotten what this country was founded on, when we get away from that we loose, we end up being like all the other nations we don't want to be like. Change can be bad.

Unfortunately for you, the demographics are not working in your favor. Most younger people just don't think like you do.

I believe alot of that is due to the media and democrats. They say things and guess what it makes it true! I really don't think the internet has help either the lines of truth get blurred by opionion and emotion. We should feel sorry for illegal because they seek a better life and don't want to do it the right way and we are fighting to keep life decent for our children and grandchildren. When I was young I thought differently then I do now too, but that's called growing up and learning from your mistakes and trying to correct them. Common sense.
