    If you disagree, you better write, call and get your friends and neighbors doing the same. Seriously.

    And this is the WHOLE problem in a nutshell. Neither party wants to alienate potential votes.

    I guess I should have sent two bricks. What the hell are these people thinking? They are about to make these "immigrants eligible for social security benefits. Like the system can afford to absorb 12 million more people.

    Yup!

    Suggestion, though it's not a problem here, quote the original poster, in multipaged threads, the absence of attribution can make it difficult for those that come later.

    yup--they've agreed to piss everyone off in a bipartisan fashion. They better watch it or everyone will see through thier scheme of maintaining the status quo.

    They're saying the immigration issue could be what actually creates a third party. About time. We can have the communists (Democrats), the socialists (Republicans), and the conseravtives (how about... The America Party?)

    Anything is possible. At the same time, I would say that if Bush gets on Monday and says they are going to secure the border, first with the National Guard, then replacing them with combo of fences/electronic measures, THEN those here will be addressed, I think the right would calm down.
