    Typical conservative response.
    And ideas of substance, or is this left to the lefties??

    You don't agree with immigration reform? I mean, sure pushing for a band-aid with the Dream Act sure helps the Democratic voting base by purchasing votes... I mean that's basically what it comes down to. Full blown immigration reform wouldn't gain as many votes so you wouldn't be in favor of that right?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sadly, I see that this poll has been contaminated by the filth from 150 tea-bagging conservatives.

    Awww.. you can get the stench of 150 flaming Progressives to equal it out. They're too busy with their lithium and vomit buckets after Tuesday though. Shame really...

    Re: Dream Act, Your Vote!

    I'd be fine with it. I've only known one person that this would apply to. Their parents moved here illegally and they actually never told the kid. He went to get a drivers license and found out that he was an illegal. I'm all for deporting the parents, but nothing is gained by deporting the kid. He was a bright, college-bound individual who didn't do anything wrong. Had he gone through to college and graduated (not sure if he did - I didn't keep in touch), he would have been a productive, tax-paying resident. I see what we lose by deporting him, but not what we gain.

    The Dream Act is basically more or less throwing illegals into the military so they can either kill or get killed abroad correct? Considering my views on foreign policy and I dont believe in rewarding (if you considering making someone dependent to the state a reward) law breakers so Im going to say no. I can understand why some would favor it.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

Is Mexico a hellhole or is American simply better? .. To our President, if these things are so, WHY NOT blanket acceptance.....end of problem.....

    My radical ideas are too radical even for me....The "Dream Act" is a first positive step.
    IMO, this "votes grab is BS..."
    Conservatives, learn to treat people decently and they may vote for YOU! I could say that to the woman who tried to degrade the so-called Latinos in her state.....but ...deaf ears prevail....
    Did I ever say that we need better people in politics?
    With so many lies and corruption, votes being bought and sold.....
    Its a wonder that the Mexicans wish to come here....
    They are here to eat, NOT VOTE.
    I'll repeat...treat people with respect and they may vote for you.....

    Should I go to this "immigrant infested area" and see if a problem even exists?
    Or should I read a newspaper and believe what they write.
    What does Rush L say ?
    Or Palin ?

    Its not the wealthy who will suffer, its the poor, the working poor.
    Nor is it me, unless the tea-bagging conservatives are successful in repealing social security.
    Lithium?

    What the hell are you talking about? I neither understand your comment nor the changes you made to my post when you quoted me.
