Sorry, I feel that if someone has been living in this country for twenty years, providing for their families while running a legitimate business that benefits the community, they should instead have the option to pay a fine and then go through the normal procedures to become a citizen. My relatives were all immigrants and so were millions of other Americans. I have absolutely no hatred towards our Mexican neighbors and actually respect the hard work they go through to live and support their families.

quote: The decision by our Supreme Court to allow Corporations to legally contribute to presidential campaigns is a travesty.
quote: The only way to "fix" it is to end the two-party system and implement term limits. The only way to do this is... to vote people into office that are not affiliated with the two current parties (i.e. have nothing to lose by being in only a short time).
quote: I thought you understood the Constitution? I think the First Amendment is pretty clear. Banning political speech, of all kinds, is Unconstitutional. The Federal Government has absolutely no business getting involved. Regardless of the consequences. It was censorship, plain and simple.
quote: Don't you get it? Our political system cannot work without two opposing sides. It's not going to happen.
