    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think we could all find common ground in agreeing that we want to remain a place where anyone who wants to come here to work and do right by the country should be welcome to, but if the reason for coming here is because a life heavily subsidized by the government here is nicer than a life heavily subsidized by the government where they're from, I'd say no thanks.  
    that they are already here, now, working--and they get zero government subsidies or welfare or whatever else it is you pee your pants over.

    Zip.  Zero.  Zilch.  None.  Nada. Not a dime.

    Why are you goppers too goddamn stupid to understand that illegal immigrants CANNOT GET ANY GOVERNMENT "WELFARE" ???

    So despite all your terror, the scary brown people are not getting all your money.  Take a deep breath and relax.

    Geez.

      what I'm arguing against is for people to come to the country simply so the can get on the state or federal government's dole... A lot of the illegal aliens are doing work that requires very unskilled labor... We don't need people coming to the country who are going to leech off of it... I'm more than happy to have people come to the country who can support themselves, but we've got enough legal citizens who already require so much help that unnecessarily granting legal status to a broad range of people who would immediately be eligible for all kinds of benefits which would put further strain on a system already in rough shape.

      •  you are arguing nonsense (0+ / 0-)

        Racist redneck nonsense.

        So please shut up.

          come on now... how is it racism? being interested in having productive people join our country and preferring that we try to take care of the huge amount of people who are already citizens and require help before we try to take care of everyone else in the world makes me racist?

          You're trying to pin the racism tag on me simply because I was up front about voting Republican and it isn't going to work...

          I don't care where anyone comes from or the color of their skin, but if they're coming here simply so that we can take care of them when we've already got plenty of people who aren't getting the care they need, I have problems...

          •  you have problems, alright (0+ / 0-)

            The brown people are not taking your money.  So stop holding your breath.

            Idiot.

            •  You've (0+ / 0-)

              revealed yourself to be someone who upon realizing that the person you're posting disagrees with you and has to resort to the same tired stereotypes that your particular party likes to go to when they've run out of ideas...

              I did not make any personal remarks against you and was trying to share ideas, yet you immediately call me "goddamned stupid" a "racist redneck" and claim that I have problems because brown people are somehow going to take my money...

              Congratulations, you're the biggest failard I've met on the internet today!
