"Men did not make the earth ... it is the value of the improvement only, and not the earth itself, that is individual property... Every proprietor owes to the community a ground rent for the land which he holds." -- Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice
I know how it works: a minute or two after being accused of harboring a secret left-wing agenda, I will be labeled as a homophobe and ...eh...bird-hater, perhaps?

Didn't Reagan give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in the 80s?
WAS HE A RINO TOO !?!?
Additionally, in the election immediately after Reagan provided amnesty, less Hispanics voted for Reagan than before amnesty. This is important to illustrate that amnesty will NOT get Mexican votes. They are lifetime dependents who believe in the largess of big government over self actualization.
Illegal aliens should be deported. If they want to be US citizens then they can get in line. Oh yeah I forgot, the majority of illegal aliens use the US for monetary gain - they could give a rats ass about anything other than that. The US to them is a convenient source of income. Most aren't here for freedom or liberty - at least not the ones from Mexico - they're here to make money and their allegiance is to Mexico - that's why they fly the Mexican flag. They don't care this is a honey hole to them.
Obviously there are plenty of illegals here who came from horrible places and are here for safety, opportunity and freedom. However those same people WANT to be US citizens and WANT to live the "American dream" (which is incorrect language considering everyone in North or South America is an "American")....
It also chaps my ass that there are a ton of people waiting in line to come to the US and want to do it the legal way while others just cut in line and they get sympathy for that?
If we're just going to give citizenship to a bunch of line-cutting illegal clowns than what is the point of going through the normal procedure??? symbolic patriotism?
So basically if an illegal wants to use the US for money that is perfectly fine, but if you're immigrating to the US for US patriotic reasons and you respect our laws you get screwed...
Can't say I'm shocked...
Oh but I forgot illegals can vote so they need to be pandered to for their votes..
What a ****ing system we have.
