  •  Their tax strategy relies on ignorance (2+ / 0-)

    after all, it depends on poorer people standing up for tax cuts for millionaires, and against an impossible tax hike (since Democrats won't get 290 and can't get it without Republican votes).

    Taxes are the main strategy since Bush and Rove aren't totally behind the idea of illegal immigration being the issue. After all, Rove still holds out hopes of the grand Republican coalition including hispanics.

    When it comes to illegal immigration, the 109th was a do-nothing congress.

    Unless you think building a wall in some places will do anything. That's like putting your finger in the faucet to stop water from coming out. It won't work.

        Mr. Sali, How exactly does anything change if English is the official language?

        ;)

      •  Show me a 50 foot wall... (4+ / 0-)

        And I'll show you a 51-foot ladder.

        We already have walls on our border. They're not working.

        Show me a National Guard Platoon on patrol along the border and I'll show you a platoon that isn't available in the event of an emergency like, say, a hurricane, or earthquake, or tornado, or forest fire, or flood.....

        We already have trained professionals patroling our border, they're called the Border Patrol (says what it means).

        We could use more of them since they're trained for this sort of thing. And oh, by the way, they could use some more, better equipment like drones and direct-linked cameras. (But what would Republicans know about giving the right people the right tools?)
