I wonder if either of the candidates wants to get elected? Seems like they want to alienate as many potential voters as possible.

“Did you know this? I bet some of you did not know that Spanish was spoken in Arizona before English”

So was Nahuatl. Still later was the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Hint: Mexico lost.

Operative word there, Juan - Lost.

Mexico lost the war along with Arizona.

Both of these candidates are liars. Of course McCain is running a stealth campaign selling US citizens out behind our backs. He is dispicable.

Barry is obvious about it. Either way we are going to have a bunch of rotten socialists running the show.

Anyone who promotes amnesty and perks for illegal aliens and votes against the Cronyn amendment is unfit to fight WOT, is selling out this country, and should never be allowed into the White House. Not surprising that the name John McCain evokes for many “The Manchurian Candidate.”

“NOW we see what kind of folks are interested in getting John Mc Cain in office.”

Versus the flat-out Marxists for Obama? Sorry. I disagree with McCain on some matters, but I can’t vote “D,” and not voting isn’t an option. It’s my duty.

The Revolution comes later. ;) Let’s just hold the White House for now, because we’re most likely going to lose the House and Senate as well.

I can’t imagine America with a President (D) running the show along with a Democrat-run House and Senate. Look at legislation that the Dems have been trying to shove down our throats just since Harry & Nance took over? You don’t think these will be more of that? LOL! They will be brazen, shameless and DRUNK with power. And you and I and America as a whole will be more than screwed.

And what about SCOTUS appointments coming down the pike? Do you really want Obama-Lama-Ding-Dong adding five more ‘Ruth Bader-Ginsbergs’ to decide YOUR fate in SCOTUS level situations? I sure don’t.

Some of you can’t see the forest for the trees.

P.S. Thanks for the “bait ping.” I’ve never talked to you on FR before. :)

Lord help us all! I was MORE interested in John Mc Cain reaching out to me as a CONSERVATIVE! I feel like I have been kicked to the curb.

Sheezech! Then go support Obama if you hate McCain that much...but there are some historic facts you ought to consider:

1. Spanish WAS spoken in Arizona before English.
2. Hispanics are now the largest minority group in the U.S.
3. It is estimated that Hispanics will be equal in size to Americans who can trace their linage back to Western Europe in 40 years.
4. Hispanics will be the majority ethnic U.S. group by the late 21st Century (grandchildren's generation).
5. Most Hispanics ascribe to the fact that hard work will result in wealth, (thanks to the Roman Catholic Church) most are family oriented and share Republican philosophy regarding such items as abortion, euthanasia and honesty in work and life.
6. Republicans need to court Hispanics; ensure they are inculcated with capitalistic ideals and are repulsed by Democratic appeals for endless cradle-to-grave welfare and entitlements.
7. The problem causing illegal immigration is demand for cheap labor by employers...most of them by the food-service, motel, and agricultural industry.
8. All of these industries have powerful lobbyists in Congress, pressuring for guest workers.
9. If you REALLY want to see an end to illegals coming across the border, organize and personally boycott chains such as Ramada Inns, Holiday Inns, all food chains and begin Minuteman raiding agri-business concerns such as Green Giant, Swift, Tyson, Kraft, as well as Walmart and K-Mart stores (but--hint, hint--remember, most are GOP-friendly)
10. Finally, some of the finest men that I met in my naval service in the defense of this nation were of Hispanic origin!

who’s fighting that?, I am a Hispanic that wants the rule of law enforced.

Allowing 12-24 million illegal aliens who violate our laws into our country with the gift of AMNESTY is NOT what’s good for America, while the American taxpayer foots the bill for the benefits package!!

I know, I am so darn disgusted with this country and this election. All the citizens of this country have become so stupid and ignorant.

I guess this election will be the result of brainwashing, indoctrination, skullduggery, and apathy.

Really makes me il. I would like to believe these scumbags will really drill. I doubt it though. They are just going to talk about it in an election year and that the last we will hear of it.

Good post man. The point is that the GOP needs to use the ideals of independence, self reliance, and hard work to court them. These things will work! The Dems will use the victim and race cards to court Hispanics, we must give them an alternative.

If it was just Amenesty for criminal border invaders, I could probably hold my nose and vote for McCain.

It's just the tip of a very ugly iceberg though.

By sense of integrity, honor, honesty, and love of Country will not allow me to vote for McCain or Obama.

I won't sit home, but I cannot vote for either of the Republicrats running for POTUS.

Your flagrant playing of the racism card is reminiscent of La Raza or Al Sharpton. Nothing in the article was against Hispanics or by the poster to which you responded. In fact, the article was written by a Hispanic, a very patriotic one, unlike John McInsane.

McCain is a loser, a liar and a traitor and I look forward to his defeat in November. I will celebrate his defeat while mourning the election of Obama.

What a pandering, half-witted and irrelevant comment. Did Juan mention any of the Native American languages that were spoken in what is now Arizona LONG before English or Spanish?

Who voted for this guy?

None of that will happen if we simply begin enforcing our immigration laws and stop the amnesty for all illegals nonsense.

“The point is that the GOP needs to use the ideals of independence, self reliance, and hard work to court them.

That’s where they went wrong. The GOP NEVER needed to pander to Hispanics. Reagan won 41% of the Hispanic vote, better than W twenty years later despite all W’s pandering. The GOP simply needed to continue appealing to Hispanics as they appealed to all other groups: with basic conservative principles best put forth by Reagan.

When the GOP started pandering, it backfired and we have lost Hispanics, NOT because many opposed amnesty, but because W’s and McCain’s amnesty push stirred up an internal fight that should never have taken place, and gave the pro-amnesty types ammunition to demonize conservatives and Republicans in general.

Pandering to groups based on race and ethnicity is Dem. tactic, and the second Republicans started down that road it cost far more than it gained.

1. Spanish WAS spoken in Arizona before English.

So? The Indians practiced paganism in America before we conqured this land. Should we teach paganism in school now?

2. Hispanics are now the largest minority group in the U.S.

Only because we've allowed this to happen by being alseep at the wheel.

3. It is estimated that Hispanics will be equal in size to Americans who can trace their linage back to Western Europe in 40 years.

A shocking scandal. Nothing to be proud of.

4. Hispanics will be the majority ethnic U.S. group by the late 21st Century (grandchildren's generation).

Not if we get rid of the 30+ million here illegally, they won't.

5. Most Hispanics ascribe to the fact that hard work will result in wealth, (thanks to the Roman Catholic Church) most are family oriented and share Republican philosophy regarding such items as abortion, euthanasia and honesty in work and life.


Actually, its been proven here and elsewhere that most hispanics (read: Mexicans) want socalism, government entitlements and are "Christian" in the same way that Obamamessiah is "Christian", ie, not at all. Actually, I'll go a step further and say that hispanic countries wouldn't be so messed up if they were authentically Christian, as our nation was for the first 150 years of our history.

6. Republicans need to court Hispanics; ensure they are inculcated with capitalistic ideals and are repulsed by Democratic appeals for endless cradle-to-grave welfare and entitlements.

No, we need to kick out the hispanics because thats exactly what they want.

7. The problem causing illegal immigration is demand for cheap labor by employers...most of them by the food-service, motel, and agricultural industry.


No, the problem causing illegal immigration is effete pretty-boy politicians who refuse to defend American culture, language and values.

8. All of these industries have powerful lobbyists in Congress, pressuring for guest workers.

They wouldn't be so powerful if we simply refused to play ball with them.

9. If you REALLY want to see an end to illegals coming across the border, organize and personally boycott chains such as Ramada Inns, Holiday Inns, all food chains and begin Minuteman raiding agri-business concerns such as Green Giant, Swift, Tyson, Kraft, as well as Walmart and K-Mart stores (but--hint, hint--remember, most are GOP-friendly)


Who cares? Law breakers are lawbreakers. If Walmart is breaking the law, they need to be punished. This kind of flagrant winking at crime ("Well, the criminals do occasionally support the GOP! Maybe we should lay off!") will only turn normal Americans against us.

10. Finally, some of the finest men that I met in my naval service in the defense of this nation were of Hispanic origin!


Were they fully assimilated?

You appear to be operating under a mistaken impression. "Hispanic" does not necessarily equal "illegal immigrant."

I don't know of anybody who has a problem with courting Hispanic voters to the conservative cause. We need (and have much to offer to) Hispanics, blacks, Poles, and people of all origins.

It's McCain's love of illegals that makes him unfit for the office he seeks.
