    LOL...if I ran, assuming I could even get nominated...I'd be shot quicker than you could say "freedom"....the powers-that-be would risk losing ALL their leverage over the folks, and I'd also be requiring public service to be voluntary.....absolutely no pay....that's one of the requirements of statesmanship, if you ask me.

    Yup...you'd never get to vote in that one....lol...

Now that is security.

    I would also utterly financially destroy anyone convicted of knowingly hiring illegal workers. I would have their assets seized, liquidated, and included in a tax refund to tax-paying citizens....

    I would make English the only official language of the U.S. and forever prohibit the printing of any government literature in any other language at taxpayer expense.

    I would also repeal the "anchor-baby" statutes...if your parents don't/didn't have the right to be here, neither do you.

    I would be an iron ruler in this instance....but my unemployment rate and tax rates/spending would probably be at a 5 star rating.....as hard-working, patriotic Americans, I think we deserve no less for our money.....

    'nuff said....

    She should be sentenced to a life of serfdom to repay her debt to the State's taxpayers.......

    I mean what part of illeagal is so hard to understand?

    A bounty would be sweeeeet but you know there's gonna be some law against that too.WhyTF could we not send them home though.

    I had to renew my DL a while back and there was an immigrant trying to get one.The lady told him 2or3 things he would need.He looked at her like she was stupid,sat down and got his pic taken in the form of a DL..What a damn shame, no insurance,SSN or anything. I sure as hell would have been sent to get my chit together and come back.Noone wants to deal with them so they just give them what they want to get them outta the way.

    God bless Bush and his border patrol.I think that says it ''patrol'',should be Border Guards or Border Protector .
    Bush basically patted the back of all those who had ''illeagal'' immigrants hired and opened it up so all the folks from South America could come on in.
    I'm for a bounty on IAs, myself....I could cuff and dump at least 100 a day if I were allowed to and rewarded for it.....say $100 a head? Seems high, but think of how much each one costs us in medical, education, welfare, corrections, crime, etc.

At the next place you work a year and then on a monday you show up at 6:00 am to start work and the place is dark and padlocked. 2 of the places were family run and in buisness 60 years each. The work sites dried up and the ones that did not well they just went bankrupt so they don't pay the company that your working for for all of the work and equipment and well that when the slippery slope starts, then the company can't pay you. Lucky for me I have a wide skill base and my own blacksmith shop but even the part time job I have just cut every ones pay by 10% but by taking that pay cut you helped 40 other people keep their jobs. We as a nation have not come close to hitting bottom yet.
    I'd like to know more about your blacksmith shop. Turning a glob of metal into something useful is fun and rewarding. I'm a metal forger, but far from being an actual blacksmith.

    I doubt I need to say it but it's gonna all get worse, way way worse. To all who get obama jobs be prepared to work to stay alive.....
    Obama jobs remind me of all the jobs for infrastructure this country created during and after the Great Depression, and even though the work was not wasted, when the road was completed or the dam built, the work ended. Obama's job creation is a temporary fix, IMO

    They reported 7000 on the local news but that might just be the first round of layoffs. Thank god my company and store is running up 7% in sales and profit this year.
