    Should Romney Advocate the Sale of California to Mexico?

    A lot of people have been wondering how Romney can get the Hispanic vote. Well this is how.

    He can deport all Hispanic illegal immigrants to California, and then sell California to Mexico. Immigrants get to live in the wealthiest state of the union, Democrats get to say we paid war reparations for the Mexican-American War, and Republicans get rid of the bluest state of the union from Congress as well as Hollywood's liberal celebrity influence.

    It's a win-win-win situation. What's the problem?

    Could you strike a blow against pollution at the same time by waving that same magic wand and giving all of us the ability to fly like a bird?

    With Hispanic illegal immigrants working in California's environmentalist R+D labs, anything is possible.

    I like the idea.California is attracting as many illegals as possible and most of those illegals are Mexican citizens .But we would have to sell California at a discount or barter some land to Mexico seeing how California is billions of dollars in debt, and Mexico is broke.After we sell California to Mexico we impose a high tariff on Mexican goods.

    "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"

    And make it that much easier for people to seek across the border by enlarging it over areas that are especially challenging to defend?

    Dems would never support it, because it would kill a crap load of electoral votes, while turning new border states into toss-ups or right-leaning areas.

    If the Mexican state we trade for is not that much in debt it will be a win win for us.
