Herman Cain’s immigration plan involves building a colossal wall well over 700 miles long and 20 feet tall envisioned in the same vein as the Great Wall of China.(link) He completes his vision by incorporating an electrified section at the top of the wall and an alligator moat on the other side.(link) Estimated costs would project at over $50 billion (link) His supporters embrace this idea, but do they really take into consideration what the repercussions could be? Furthermore, do we honestly believe that this expensive and immoral act would actually end illegal immigration?
Such an honest interview.
Ron Paul's Message to Hispanics: Same as to Everyone Else
I wonder how much his support will drop after people hear about this. Spread the word!
Study: Most new Texas jobs went to immigrants
With both jobs and immigration likely topics of sharp debate at tonight's Republican debate here in Florida, a new report suggests that newly-arrived immigrants have filled a majority of new jobs created in Texas, home to Republican frontrunner Gov. Rick Perry.
I think I get Ron Paul's stance on the cause of and solution to illegal immigration and terrorism but it seems a lot of people (not so much on this forum) are confused.
What I want out of this post is some discussion on how we can help promote Paul's message on illegal immigration and terrorism to those who don't (want to?) understand it. I'll start the ranting to get things going.
Here are the major thoughts I've had recently with regards to the debates where Paul lost the main stream audience:
Ron has now discredited every technique to secure the border against the ongoing invasion that is changing the character of the electorate.
Ron is strong on national defense when he says to bring our troops home.
But defending US territory from invasion is another matter.
As long as Santorum is hammering Perry, let's keep him around a little longer.
Did you see Perry's face while Santorum was skewering him on immigration?
Of course, Santorum repeatedly violates the "no asshole" rule, so he's no threat of gaining more voters, but I guess he's good for something.
Democrats see illegal aliens and their children as future Democratic voters. Republicans are terrified of being called racists and alienating the ethnic lobbies.
Crass commercial interest is another reason.
U.S. companies see immigrants, legal or illegal, as an endless source of cheap labor to keep wage costs down. And they are right.
But who is looking out for the national interest, for all of the members of the American family, especially the unemployed?

Blatant political pandering by the Democratic Party for votes in 2012
Remember we did very poor in their first presidential straw poll. This website is very illegal immigration oriented and there are a lot of neoconservatives here as well. Look at questions number 7 - 9 (especially 7) there was a lot of disrespect towards Ron Paul considering he's had the most Top 3 finishes in Republican Party straw polls out of ALL the canidates.
An update for those who haven't heard yet - the attempt to shove an amnesty bill down the throats of Americans has failed in the U.S. Senate. The people of American rose up and faxed, called, emailed, and wrote letters to their representatives in Congress. Fearing the backlash of the people, 18 senators who previously voted yes to pass this legislation, switched their vote to "NO". Chalk one up for the people. Next on the agenda - Get Congressman Paul nominated as the Republican nominee for President.
It asks: "Whom do you most trust on the illegal-immigration issue?"
Tom Tancredo currently has a commanding lead.
