    When a state counts illegal immigrants as US citizens they are getting more representation than they deserve. And it's usually the rural states....

    I take it that you're against immigration reform...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    So is forced poverty.

    I wouldn't help the poor unless it benefitted me to do so. I benefit if the poor have clean water and sewage disposal because helps prevent disease from spreading. I benefit if they have health care for the same reason. I benefit if their children are healthy and get an education so they can get a job later instead of turning to crime in order to steal what they can't earn or end up in prison paid for by my taxes. I care what kind of country I live in and if my country doesn't give a damn about it's own people then why should I care about my country?

    great. but forcing other people to act as you would is bad policy.

    forced charity is wrong.

    so your saying CA, keeps it 53 NY 27 and the states you have your eye on, should have their representatives reduced?

    Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons


    the constitution does not state .....citizens.
