They almost all liars.
It's time to stop using the "Amnesty" word and talk about "Legalization".

(Conservatives are all that's left to defend the Constitution. Dems hate it, and Repubs don't care.)
Handel is pro gay and a dues paying member of the Lincoln republic. She is a profligate spender and an old school GOP elitist. Kingston is a snake
