I want to start by saying that I admire other cultures. Geography was one of my favorite subjects whan I was in school. I even speak Spanish somewhat well. I have Mexican friends. Dario is a Spanish version of my name. So, I do not consider myself a racist. However, today there are 18 to 20 million people in this country who broke the law to get here. These people consist of Mexicans and other Latinos who came here looking for work. There are also an unknown number of Moslems who came here looking to do us harm (2001, remember?). Arabs (Moslems) tend to be dark skinned and brown eyed like Mexicans. It is easy for Arabs to shave their beards and put on Mexican style clothing and they can fit right in. So, I consider this huge illegal population group to be a hazard to our way of living. I also consider these people to be "HOUSEBREAKERS"! They broke the law to get here. We would break the law if we entered their countries this way! The worst thing is that they become entitled to the RIGHTS of citizenship as soon as they cross the border! They are entitled to our schools and hospitals! I'm not sure if they can get food stamps (but I suspect that they can). If they don't get the treatment the desire they take to the streets in massive demonstrations! Now, how would you like to have someone break into your home? How would you like it if they then started demanding a place at your table? Should you have to provide them with a bed? Clothing? Money? Should you have to add them to your medical and car insurance? Let them drive your car? Be responsible for their activities? And, demonstate against you if they don't get what they want? And, you couldn't kick them out? Unfortunately, that is the WAY IT IS! WHY? I believe that the Democratic Party (at least the Liberals) is in a large way responsible because Illegals are even allowed to VOTE! And, they tend to vote for DEMOCRATS! I know a man who once worked for the Oregon DMV. They have the "MOTOR VOTER" rule. He told me that Illegals would come in who couldn't speak a word of English, but who had voter forms filled out in impeccable English. He asked the head of Voter Registrars of Multnomah County what was being done about Illegals registering to vote and was told: "We don't even care!" It is no secret that millions of Illegals have been voting for years now. And, almost ALL are controlled by LIBERALS! One of the things that is destroying freedom in Kalifornia is the large voting bloc of Illegal Aliens - who vote almost 100% for Liberal Democrats and their policies! So, whose hearts bleed for these people who broke the law to come here? LIBERAL or CONSERVATIVE? DEMOCRAT or REPUBLICAN? (Remember, I am an Independent.) Is there anything we can do?
