    Man this here is nuts. It is all supposed to be backed by facts listed below the information.


    It's time we wake up. Boy am I confused. Listening to the Partisan 'politicals ', I have been hammered with the propaganda that it is the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be RIDICULOUS.


    Now . I hope the following 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them. I have included the URL's for verification of all the following facts.



    1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens

    each year. http://tinyurl.com/zob77 <http://tinyurl.com/zob77%20>



    2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs

    such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

    10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's

    two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular,

    their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in

    the US.http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html

    <http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0606/12/ldt.01.html>



    11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens

    that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal

    aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine,

    meth, heroine and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern

    border. Homeland Security Report: http://tinyurl.com/t9sht<http://tinyurl.com/t9sht>



    12. The National Policy Institute, 'estimated that the total cost of

    mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average

    cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.'

    14. 'The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex

    Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States '.

    http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml <http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml>



    The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR

    Are we THAT stupid???

    If this doesn't bother you then just delete the message. If, on the other hand, if it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, I hope you forward it to every legal resident in the country including every representative in Washington , D.C. - five

    times a week for as long as it takes to restore some semblance of intelligence in our policies and enforcement thereof

    You can blame that on the Greedy EMPLOYERS that hire them.. and a System that Encourages Illegals to cross the Border... Not to Mention the Dems love all these Victims that will vote Democrat everytime to keep the FREE American TAX dollars flowing in services and now even some so-called Republicans like McCain and Huckabee are even joining in March to GIVE America Away ... With this type of Political Mentality we are destined to be a Socialist country bordering Communist in the next few Decades .. Why do you think the Goverment wants everyone worrying about The Global Warming HOAX...(takes the eye off the ball) The Average American Voter is a Politically MORON in my opinion....Most vote on something other than actual Knowledge of the Candidates VOTING RECORD.... They just listen to these guys speak with a forked tounge out bothsides of their face and Believe it .... with any research they would find that they have VOTED completely opposite... 99% of voters are fat and happy sitting home watching the plasma and cringe at the sound of politics then go vote based on FEELINGS.. I wish people had to take a ENGLISH only , Voters educations class and be a land owner before being able to vote.........
    If your a land owner you have something vested in this country ... If you dont your far more likely to vote to suck off those that do.... :soapbox:

  5. It makes me sick to see our country that our ancestors fought and died for be given away and made a refuge for someone that does not like the way their gov. treats them. So they come to ours and try and change it to resemble their old homeland. I work as a paramedic and it is so hard to run emergency calls when you go on people that have a permant address here but yet can not speak english because our school system and government do not enforce them to. I think our government has tried to pull the wool over our eyes for way to long, when will people finally realize that they don't care what happens as long as they keep getting their pockets padded. I am just so sick of this :censored:. Well I think I will get down off the :soapbox: now.

    I can agree with this sentiment somewhat. I happened to roll up on a vehicle that rolled over on hwy 33 north sunday night. It was a little mexican girl and her son, they are here legally by the way. This little girl was on her way home from church when her car hit a dip in the curve and lost traction on the wet pavement and rolled completely over in a ditch. The two year old was in a car seat and was unhurt.

    We pulled up to see her squated in front of the car holding her boy. Seeing his legs i told the wife to stay in the car seeing all the damage to the car i feared to see alot worse. The boy being fine, this girl couldn't walk! I picked the boy up and sat him in the backseat of my truck, went back and picked her up and put her in the backseat since it was raining.

    Called the police, her father and husband after all the reports she didn't want an ambulance or hospital! Even today i was wondering if someone convinced her to go, cause that night she couldn't walk from her hip......

    I will not without further investigation give the original topic a chance at being true but it probably is. If the everyday citizen knew how much of our tax money went to appease rogue nations there would be an uproar. We spend billions of our hard earned money to give to our enemy to keep them from harming us.

    And some wonder why we have a problem with them coming to America. If I was from a poor country and all that seperated me was a few cactus, and maybe a torn up fence and some snakes, and my family could get the benefits of what was posted here. What do you think you would do. I know what I would do. I would buy me some snake chaps, a few snake bite kits just in case my first line of defense didn't work (Me and snakes don't like each other and you know how they are down in that area), a inner tube to blow up in case I had to cross a stream, and once I made it across I would be looking for the first government office to be signing up for things.

    You know I once blamed the illegals, then I blamed the government, then I realized, its really every american citizens fault for allowing our government to do this. We have the power of a vote, and really this should be one of the many national issues out there. But I have not seen nor heard one thing mentioned about it in this years runnings. IMO in it should be at least in the top 4-5 main issues we should be conerned with for our nation.

    Show me in the Constitution where the tax dollars of U.S. citizens should be spent on homeless American vets. I know several veterans, they served their country..and now they work. And I've heard some of them say they would not support a tax to help those who should be.

    this is what ticks me off more than anything. they will give illegals free health care at emergency rooms which would cost us thousands of dollars, they will give them free education at the expense of us and our children, they will shell out BILLIONS of dollars to worthless pieces of crap on welfare that are just milking the system and could work just fine, they give tax breaks and small business loans to everybody except the people that deserve it the most. BUT they will turn their backs and toss aside like yesterdays trash the very people that gave EVERYTHING to defend this free nation. our nation is headed for really bad times if we don't get our goverment to start controlling its spending and giving money to every undeserving person in the world.:frown: :frown:

    Show me anywhere in the Constitution where it says that the United States/the taxpayers are responsible to support illegal aliens in any way...or foreign countries that are starving:confused:

    show me in the constitution where the tax dollars should go to illegial immigrants, or billions in aid to countries that would kill us in a heartbeat given the chance. show me in the constitution where we got our foreign policies and the right to insert ourselves into any country we feel we should? the constitution has little or nothing to do with our goverment anymore:frown:
