Get ready for war within our borders
- I am the last person that you will ever hear satnd up say that the
Federal Government is competent or effective, but this is more like
an act of war. La Raza is a racist organization, plain and
simple.Giving these people my tax dollars to fund illigals who are
already draining our social systems, drive down wages and benefits,
turning our country into a third world slum, and have no respect for
our culture and laws goes beyond outrage. They are using our tax
dollars to fund the over throw of the AMERICAN people. These groups
are pet projects of Vincente Fox who supports latino groups that
wish to annex parts of this country for Mexico.
It is obvious that our so called Government of the people cares
nothing about its people, and they show it more every day.
I say if the turds in Washington can not handle this issue, that it
is up to the people to protect thier country, and start making this
country a very unwelcome place for these types to come, and make the
Government start enforcing the laws that are in place and punish
those who willingly employ these illegals.
Washington is to busy ass kissin to take a stand, so I suppose it is
up to us.
