    Thank you for admitting that you have no idea what the Electoral College is.

    Being stupid is another reason to deny them the vote.

    I'm fair.



    It is.

    If you want to be an American.
    Resorting to trolling now?

    No, I pointed out that living in a ghetto isn't an American ideal.
    And I suppose your American Ideal is the same for everyone? Such modesty.


    if they want to be Americans and vote, they need to learn the damn language.
    Why? You have yet to show any reason why they must learn English. Unless you're reason is that you'll be really really really mad.

    And the last time I checked, as long as you are an US citizen, you are able to vote regardless of what language you speak or not speak.

    No. Your refusal to recognize the meaning of the word "illegal" has been highlighted by your posts.
    Translation: I know you are but what am I?

    No originality.

    Please be sure to explain your answer.
    By that reasoning, we should force drug dealers to give us drugs cheaply. We should force China to give us our jobs back on threat of retaliation. No is simple enough, I think.

    I don't recall saying that.

    How's about if you post a quote from me saying so.

    Just because I don't follow your pushes doesn't mean I"m an ignorant Democrat.

    As I recall, the discussion wasn't about what is, but what should be.

    You didn't have say it, your ignorance did. The notion that you even think that universal suffrage is how our presidents get elected, says it all.

    Oh, I forgot. That's right. They wrote the Constitution in First Kingdom Hieroglyphics.
    So since our laws are written in English, that means everyone must speak English in order to vote? What does this even accomplish? Why is this even considered a requirement?

    Does it somehow root out the "bad" voters? Does it somehow improve the quality of the voting process? Stop with this juvenile babble already. You've got no justification for your idiotic reason.

    Your willingness to read into things that which have not been said is not a measure of the depth of my knowledge.

    Wow, it's amazing how things work by osmosis, isn't it?

    How happy is Canada with it's pathetic french speaking minority who pretend that French is the language of the first people to settle the area? How stable is that, how well have the bogus compromises worked to keep the loons at bay?

    Since it's my country, the United States, it's perfectly reasonable to demand that people wishing to participate in elections speak my language. They moved into my home, not I, theirs.

    Because it keeps the illegal aliens from the south from taking over as easily.

    No, just the naughty ones.

    Yes. It keeps the discussion in english, prevents the formation of special interest group enclaves manipulated by unscrupulous community organizers.

    You could try paying attention to how politics works in a free republic sometime, and how those free republics are turned into workers paradises.

    No, your refusal to see reason does not mean reason does not exist. It's been explained to you in greater detail than required to teach emus the concept.

    But I'm used to teaching Democrats and socialists and other little children about the real world.

    No explanation, nor substantiation. Just more trolling.

    Can you tell me what language the North and the South spoke during the Civil War? So much for unity of culture.

    Speaking the language has nothing to do with accepting the culture. There are many people around the world that admire the US's system of gov't. They do NOT need to speak English in order to enjoy it, admire it, nor practice it.

    It is about the idea of voting. Not what language you speak.

    How happy is Canada with it's pathetic french speaking minority who pretend that French is the language of the first people to settle the area? How stable is that, how well have the bogus compromises worked to keep the loons at bay?
    I guess Canada is going to go into civil war mode, eh?

    Since it's my country, the United States, it's perfectly reasonable to demand that people wishing to participate in elections speak my language. They moved into my home, not I, theirs.
    Since immigrants can be naturalized and hold US citizenship, it is as much your country as theirs. Again, your malcontent towards immigrants have been exposed (by your own commentary).

    Because it keeps the illegal aliens from the south from taking over as easily.
    Uh, no. Immigrants, legal ones, can come into the US without having to speak the language. What makes you think it's going to stop illegal ones?

    Yes. It keeps the discussion in english, prevents the formation of special interest group enclaves manipulated by unscrupulous community organizers.
    And what special interest group enclaves are you speaking about, or are we just going to make **** up as we go along?

    You could try paying attention to how politics works in a free republic sometime, and how those free republics are turned into workers paradises.
    Forgive me if I don't take your advice seriously, but you don't know the difference between Universal Suffrage and the Electoral College, let alone politics.

    But I'm used to teaching Democrats and socialists and other little children about the real world.
    The only thing I learned from you is your distaste for immigrants.

    So, your counter argument is that culture is defined solely by language.

    Good for you.

    I know.

    Your ability to argue against what hasn't been said isn't.

    I take it you have nothing else to add to your pathetically weak argument?
