Congressman Marshall supports voting in Spanish

Jim Marshall votes to use your taxpayer dollars for Spanish Ballots

(Warner Robins, GA) For a person to become a naturalized American Citizen they are required to speak, understand and write Basic English according to American Red Cross Citizenship Project. Congressman Jim Marshall does not seem to understand that fact and has voted to spend our taxpayer funds to spend taxpayer money on bilingual ballots (Roll Call Vote 340, 06/28/2006). Mr. Marshall must therefore be asked why we need to spend our family's hard earned money when American citizens are required to understand English to vote.

"After this vote and his previous vote to give illegal immigrants food stamps, I wonder if representative Marshall remembers he represents Middle Georgia and not Mexico." said Bill Hagan, a spokesman for Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA)

So when voters are asked to approve a ballot initiative, the full pending amendment can be found someplace in Spanish? Or just the ballot language is translated?

People should have FULL DISCLOSURE of what they are voting for and legal language is precise.

Using that logic all voters should have legal degrees to better understand what they are voting for. Voting should be done in English because voters are required to have learned English.

This is a great idea. I support Congressman Marshall moving to Mexico, so he can also enjoy voting in Spanish.

Should this mischief be enacted, it will substantially advance America's ongoing balkanization. The reconquistas and their fellow travelers will have accomplished what the estimable Bobby Lee could not. And all without a shot being fired in anger. (Maybe).

Well there are certainly times where the ballot language is so twisted as to confuse voters (e.g. vote Yes if you oppose something or No for Yes).

That is why there must be a place for voters who wish to do so to read the FULL text of what they are voting on.

If the people behind bilingual ballots do not insist upon guaranteeing that ballot initiatives and state constitution amendments are translated in full on government websites and available in offices, then they don't give a Rat's ass about voter rights, they are just seeking the candidate votes and bloc votes of a minority.

In Houston you can vote in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

English and Spanish voting is done electronically while Vietnamese voters still use a paper ballot. Such "separate but equal" voting mechanisms would appear to be illegal. It doesn't matter that they vote at the same polls, they do not use the same voting mechanism.

Congressman Marshall is a pathetic corrupt soul eager to waste taxpayer money as well as grasping for anything to get mentioned in the news, even if it reveals him to be the fool that he is. Yes, time to vote him out of office.

Huh? Why not just use one language--vote in whichever language the Founders wrote our Constitution? Most ballots contain rather simple language--the names of offices and candidates. People need to read and understand the precise language of ballot questions to vote on those referenda properly, and translations into several languages can yield immense difficulties in applying the results because translation involves more than mere "word for palabra" substitution.

marshall should take a map and find his district. He obviously thinks he is representing a district in Massachusetts. He number one on my list of the rats most likely to lose.

My posts are not a plea for multi-language balloting. They are to point out that the legalease is precise language (deliberately written with wiggle room).

Having voters cast VOTES on such legislation based on paraphrased translations is inadequate. It is a vestage of "separate but nearly equal".

Government should be conducted in English in this country.

There are some border towns in Texas that conduct city council meetings in Spanish.

This country is falling apart because we have been told that what "was" was evil.
