    Dream Act, Your Vote!

    In the lame duck Congress, the Dream Act may come up.

    Are you for it or against it?

    I am totally against it. If you are here illegally then **** you, there should be no paths to citizenship for you as long as you remain in this country illegally. Get the hell out of the country and go through the legal means of coming and staying here legally. Going to college or becoming a POG in the military should not earn you easy legal status or citizenship. Now if some people who are here LEGALLY wish to join a combat MOS in the Marines or Army(obviously this offer would be closed to females since women can not join combat MOSs) as an enlisted soldier for a period of 3-4 years(depending on combat MOS) to get a easier or quicker path to citizenship then I would have no problem with that.

    Its nice to see people selecting the "Make votes public". You can see who actually voted and so far only 2 for yea! and 3 for Nay!

    "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"

    I am against the DREAM act. It rewards illegals for breaking our laws and treats those who are legally trying to enter the country in an unfair way. If someone is breaking our laws and living here illegally then they are no patriot worthy of quicker road to citizenship. They are a criminal worthy of deportation and being prevented from ever entering our country as a citizen.

    Totally for it. It's a practical way to deal with a bad situation.

    Why do you advocate such a large government expenditure?

    Bus rides are much cheaper than planes.

    Against it. We don't need another band-aid fix, we need immigration reform. Even if it's passed our bureaucracy cannot follow up, track or validate these requirements or achievements. This would be yet another failed fix to a broken system.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    I see a lot of tea-bagging anger here, as well as the usual fear and ignorance.
    This seems to be a good idea, who is the progressive that thought it up?
    Forget spell check, I too and angry, and its NOT conservative GOP!
