Ok, we're at a loss here because I'm not talking about this from a 'democrat vs republican' perspective.Some elections they have gotten more than 50%. Then, all of a sudden, the GOP went for this whole wave of anti-hispanic stuff- US senators launched racial attacks on Sotomayor, english as a national language stuff, AZ Republicans have been passing a flurry of anti-hispanic laws in addition to the ones dealing with illegal immigration, prominent Republicans comparing La Raza to the KKK... The Republicans have created this situation where a hispanic voter is pretty much certain to be a Democrat just in the past year or so. The Democrats didn't do anything any differently on this stuff, the Republicans changed their position and alienated the hispanics. Really it isn't even too late to turn it back around for the GOP. Lots of hispanics have only been saying they will vote Democrat for a few months now. A concerted effort to cut out all the anti-hispanic stuff would bring them back in to play easily. Keep in mind, hispanic culture is traditionally very conservative and highly religious... A huge portion of them would vote Republican if they were welcome in the party, but clearly they aren't anymore.
As for Sotomayor, I've been told about her book 'america's deadly obsession' (or something to that effect) all about how american's don't really have an individual right to keep and bear arms... that's alot closer to the root of the attacks, rather then this race pimping attempt to legitimize her positions.
As for the 'la raza' -> hispanic kkk... yes, it is. They also talk about 'la reconquista'. All of this has NOTHING to do with legal hispanic americans. I'm sorry that they feel individually targeted, but it's really not the case.
Arizona's law IS NOT ANTI-HISPANIC. EVERYONE that's claimed it is, simply has not read the actual legislation. It simply states that if someone is arrested, and cannot provide ID that they have their citizenship verified through ICE.
That was only one of the documents anyway... there's about 150-200 pages worth of documents on the subject of bringing about a north american union, much like the european union, though politically, it seems as though the north american currency will be bypassed for the global 'special drawing rights units' that have been discussed recently.I think you're misreading that. It is about people who are travelling for work on behalf of an employer having benefit reciprocity. It explicitly limits the scope of the agreement to that scenario...

Ok, let's say you're right... I have no reason to believe you're lying anyway... but the illegal immigrants are leaving faster then they are coming :Oh come on... That's some tinfoil hat stuff man... The number of illegal immigrants living in the US has fallen 3 years in a row... Meaning more illegal immigrants are leaving than are arriving...
Well, there's still a large swath of arizona that's for all intents and purposes 'mexican' territory now. The economy is crashing in the US as well, meaning fewer jobs even for the illegals... what that is NOT stopping in any way shape or form is that the drug cartels are coming into US territory to smuggle their wares, shooting and killing cops, farmers, and anyone else that's getting in their way.
SO, EVEN IF most of the 'benign' illegal immigrants (as in here illegally, but just trying to make a life for themselves and follow the laws) are leaving, they are now being replaced with the violent drug pushers that have no interest in following ANY laws, have no interest in becoming american, have disdain for americans, believe that whites have 'stolen' their territory and they want it back.
I know you (or someone) said about that town hall meeting I linked up that 'the republican can't be trusted'... but think about it this way : If Obama will tell his opposition something like this, then just imagine what he's telling his friends. Unless it can be shown that this conversation never happened, or that the senator Kyl never actually went to the whitehouse...
I really DO wish that it was just some 'tin hatter' nonsense... when the reality is that while everyone politically is saying the right things... what is being DONE falls in line with the 'tin hatter' position.
