They just want FULL RIGHTS, that's all.
I think the question is, where do we march? At this moment, I would love to see 12 million Minute Men sitting right on the border.
I tried organizing a rally in D.C. here on FR.
About 10 people were interested.
In 1994 I was in D.C. for the Assault Weapons Ban protest.
5,000 other people out of the 280 million citizens in this country were there with me.
in 2000 I was in D.C. for the anti-Million Mom March.
5,000 other people out of the 290 million citizens in the country were there with me.
If we had an organized protest against the illegals a month from now in D.C., I doubt more than 5,000 concerned citizens would bother to show up. I would be one of them.
Yes, we are being out-organized by the other side. The illegals might not be doing the organizing, but they show up to support their beliefs.
More than I can say about my fellow citizens.
That's what this is all about, not old threads either of us have or have not been on.
While I love FreeRepublic and the posters here who are helpful, witty, insightful and just plain smart...why are we just posting here, writing our indifferent elected officials and not out doing something ourselves. Is it kinda like deer in the headlights? I include myself in this....what to do?
I blew up when Tiger posted that link and posted that picture
Is THAT all?
Full rewards for criminally invading our country.
Is THAT all they are demanding?
Not a new car?

Europeans have to come in through Canada.
You lovely island . . .
Island of tropical breezes.
Always the pineapples growing,
Always the coffee blossoms blowing . . .
Puerto Rico . . .
You ugly island . . .
Island of tropic diseases.
Always the hurricanes blowing,
Always the population growing . . .
And the money owing,
And the babies crying,
And the bullets flying.
I like the island Manhattan.
Smoke on your pipe and put that in!
I like to be in America!
O.K. by me in America!
Ev'rything free in America
For a small fee in America!
I like the city of San Juan.
I know a boat you can get on.
Hundreds of flowers in full bloom.
Hundreds of people in each room!
Automobile in America,
Chromium steel in America,
Wire-spoke wheel in America,
Very big deal in America!
I'll drive a Buick through San Juan.
If there's a road you can drive on.
I'll give my cousins a free ride.
How you get all of them inside?
Immigrant goes to America,
Many hellos in America;
Nobody knows in America
Puerto Rico's in America!
I'll bring a T.V. to San Juan.
If there a current to turn on!
I'll give them new washing machine.
What have they got there to keep clean?
I like the shores of America!
Comfort is yours in America!
Knobs on the doors in America,
Wall-to-wall floors in America!
When I will go back to San Juan.
When you will shut up and get gone?
Everyone there will give big cheer!
Everyone there will have moved here!
