Breaking: House Votes 45-25 to Strike Down Driverís License Law (NM-banning DL's for illegals)
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | February 8, 2012 | Dan Boyd

After more than three hours of debate, the House of Representatives has voted to overturn the controversial state law that allows foreign nationals to obtain New Mexico driver’s licenses, regardless of whether they are in the country legally.

The vote was 45-25, which is an improvement from 42-28 last year. Next up, the NM state Senate where it will likely die a quick death (as it did last year) due to fierce opposition from controlling Dems. Though the NM House is also controlled by Democrats, I suspect that more than one voted for repeal knowing that they would be covered by the Senate killing the bill. The 30-day legislative session ends next Thursday at noon.

I really hope that the Dems in the Senate understand that there are many voters fed up with their refusal to pass this bill.

I know a lot of people that are Dems that have said they will refuse to vote for Dems that voted against this bill. Hopefully many feel this way!

It appears as though the ‘RAT politicians don’t mind drunken Mexican Nationals driving on their roads and killing their constituents.

I meant red, like Republican red on the electoral map........But you are right, it make more since if the RATS had red and the GOP blue.

If it was me I would treat my depression with all the fine Mexican dining in that town.

I wonder where the assigned red and blue colors came in to place.

Red would be more appropriate for the libturds.

The Orwellian newsspeak color scheme is deliberate propaganda on the part of the media to disassociate their beloved Democrat party from the color of its ideology. The GOP wasn’t labelled “Red” (the party of domestic and international leftism/fascism/totalitarianism) until the 2000 election night. There’s only one major party that is Commie Red, and it ain’t the GOP (yet). The GOP should’ve repudiated that label immediately. Blue is the color of international Conservatism. Time to take it back.

Thanks. That is interesting. It figures the leftist media had something to do with it.

We should just start using the terms they way they had been; the Red states (maybe using the capital “R” will better signify the Bolshevism?) will be the socialist ones, and the blue states are the American ones.

We don’t have to speak newsspeak, and hopefully it will spread.

I hope so. Dave Leip’s website doesn’t use the newsspeak colors (if only because he began his site prior to the switcheroo in Nov. 2000... and because he wasn’t about to embark on the arduous process of rewriting all his maps).
