    Sounds like you're more interested in hurling insults than actually discussing the policy, so this is where I bow out of the thread.

    I can't. This is important.

    So you are saying that they wouldn't use your logic to allow illegals the right to vote?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No taxation without representation?
    If they want representation, they can become citizens. On that note, it should be easier to become a citizen, especially for long-term tax paying residents.

    How about barring people who don't pay taxes from voting?

    Sorry Liberal but we have a little thing called sovereignty and if you are as Anti-American as Obama and want illegal scum voting here you need to shipped out with them.

    California allows the scumbag illegals to register and vote and Arizona now does too.

    Time to ship them back to where ever they are from. Round them up now. I'd pay more in taxes to get rid of them, once and for all.

    No I'm not a bigot I'm pro-American anti-Infiltrators and illegals 110%.

    They are illegal to hire so they should pay no taxes. Kick them the hell out, we owe them nothing for taking our jobs, going to our hospitals etc.

    If you want to reward them you too are useless Anti-American and should take off to someplace where they welcome your ilk.

    Jesus Boy. Do you even read what you post? Clearly you have no idea what a GREEN CARD is. Much less a skilled worker Visa. Or a foreign student Visa. Two of which are guaranteed to pay some form of income tax and the third to likely pay state local sales tax.

    Time to ship them back to where ever they are from. Round them up now. I'd pay more in taxes to get rid of them, once and for all.
    So let's kick out all of our green card holding residents, all of our skilled worker visa holders, and all of our foreign students on visas?
    Jesus Boy. Think before you post.

    No I'm not a bigot I'm pro-American anti-Infiltrators and illegals 110%.
    See above. There's a thing called Google. I suggest you start using it before you post.

    They are illegal to hire so they should pay no taxes. Kick them the hell out, we owe them nothing for taking our jobs, going to our hospitals etc.
    I wasn't aware that legal non-citizen residents are illegals. Care to point out how a green card holder who pays taxes is an illegal?
