    The fact of the Gang of Eight Amnesty Bill before Congress right now has resulted in an analysis of the actual results of the Reagan Amnesty grant and there are even reports that, prior to his death, Reagan himself noted what a terrible mistake he had made in granting amnesty.
    Republicans have a very narrow and unsophisticated understanding of Latinos ... it comes from the stereotypes with which cons typically operate ... their bigotry bites them on the butt at election time ...

    I assume that you're talking about the GOP base ... true, it's not a terribly bright bunch, but they already are citizens, which is unfortunate .. the country would be much better off if we replaced them with immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries ...

    Not necessarily:


    Democrats and educational level (Politifact)

    Sabato said that "the higher the education level, the more likely [voters] are to vote Democratic." Sabato bases his claim on 2008 exit polls showing this national trend. Several polls and analysis done on data from presidential elections dating back at least a decade support Sabato’s claim.

    Still, looking at data for Georgia, the trend remains for white voters -- regardless of educational level -- to vote Republican.

    For many areas of the country, Sabato’s claim holds true. But in Georgia and the Deep South, the GOP is still firmly in control. We rate Sabato’s statement Mostly True.

    Why not reimplement literacy tests and poll taxes then?

    Is there a list of the members? I didn't see it in the article.

    Whoever votes for final passage of this,and is from a district or state that is not liberal,will lose their seat. Whether they be Republican or Democrat.
