What do you call buying their vote like obama did?
So the GOP refuses to differentiate between legal hispanic and illegal hispanic citizens? Really? Do you mean like Dems and the media refusing to tag anyone as illegal (at best we are told they are, "Undocumented"),thus lumping legitimate immigrants in with the illegitimate ones?
"So the GOP refuses to differentiate between legal hispanic and illegal hispanic citizens?" ________ I don't think so. I've met conservatives Hispanics who realize that illegal imigration is bad for this country and they vote GOP.
Whether though people here illegally or their children who were granted birthright citizenship voting, illegal immigration played a huge role in giving power to the democrat party.
Eventually, what will dissipate the U.S. is the continued emphasis on diversity (e.g., ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, income, etc.). At the heart of the American system is a nation of laws regardless of those factors. When one looks across various global regions, what one sees is on-going [violent] tribal battles. If the American political system continues down the path of segregating challenges based upon shallow visual cues, the same will materialize here. The masses elevate the likes of Ghandi, MLK, Mother Theresa and Pope John Paul, but have difficulty in taking the high road in addressing the opportunities and issues of the day.
obamafone4me: "What do you call buying their vote like obama did?" Pure fiction!
