No PC Conservitives want to control peoples lives by instituting their moral beliefs on the rest of the country. When the Republicans WERE the party of business THEY were much more successful. Ever since the Republican party has been kidnapped by the likes of Jerry Falwell, the Koch brothers, and the right wing war machine, they have declined in voter acceptability every year. Had they not stolen the 2000 election we would be in the 6th straight term of a Democratic President.

Most immigrants want a better life, they don't care about politics until they become legal, then they realize The Republicans only want to exploit them for cheap labor. Blues, conservatives are scrambling on how to win the future Latino vote. Your smart enough to realize this but to arrogant to admit it.

Conservatives embrace immigrants, cheap nonthreatening labor. Part of their ultimate goal, Upper class, and a working lower class, and oh yeah the wannabe azz-smooching yes people.

Just remember, the Mexicans enforce their border by shooting the illegals. Anyway, what about the 327 Americans job that will be lost?

Enigma: How would you protect the borders? Conservatives are not against immigration. Republican Ronald Reagaon gave Amnesty to Millions of Illegal's. It was supposed to be a one-time resolution.

This country under Republican or Democrat Presidents did not enforce our borders or our culture. The far left Dizzycrats like Obama has demeaned the Republicans and people like -Reallytiredofit- drank a gallon of Obama's class warfare Kool aid. They repeat the crazy talk

The Republican party hated the Catholics, so they became Democrats. The Republican hated African Americans, so they became Democrats. The Republican party hates Hispanics and Latinos, So they have become Democrats. The insecure White Enangelical males, mostly southerners, have now added Women to their list of Americans to loath and demean. They lost EVERY one of these voting groups in the last 2 National elections. Keep it up my Republican friends, because you have proven to be the best reason for these groups to continue to vote Democrat. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generous support.

MRRIGHT- I said we need to protect the borders... Or can't you read? I said a path to citizenship is better than booting people who are already here. I used Hermie Cain's quote about the border fence as an example of why Mexican people living here wouldn't like republicans.

I also understand the importance of one language. Which I hadn't mentioned.

So I guess you don't understnd that I understand more thann you think.

MRRIGHT- Who said anything about the workers buying the cars?

Not everyone in Mexico is dirt poor. The entire Mexican market opens up as the US market slowly closes.

Enigma: You don't understand or agree with the USA maintaining and protecting our Borders. You don't understand the importance of having one language.

As far as the Mexicans workers buying GM cars, good look with that one because the workers come to work on a company bus.

Americans are buying less and less GM cars, so they move the plant to Mexico and tap into new customers in there.

Cheaper labor and new customer base...

They will gain more Mexican customers than they will lose in the US and save money on labor.

MRRIGHT- Republicans have been agaist a path for citizenship until they lost the presidential election.

I agree boarders must be controlled but there is no sense in deporting working people that come here to work. They should make money legally and pay taxes like everyone else.

MRRIGHT- You twist facts.

Romney's dad was born in Mexico while his parents were there recruiting for their cult. That doesn't make him any more Mexican than John McCain is Panameno....

A friend of mine was born in Germany on a military base... doesn't make him German.

enigma: There is no such Arizona law--'if you look like a Mexican' You have never been in Arizona, New Mexico or Texas-

Romney's Dad was born in Mexico, not that it means anything, What you fail to recognize is the following: A Nation without borders is no longer a Nation. Learn a little History.

"The announcement comes shortly after UAW Local 651 members authorized a strike as part of negotiations with GM."

What is a strike? It's workers refusing to work at the current compensation and/or working conditions. Well, GM and Delphi are granting the UAW's wish by shutting down the factory. The lesson here: Be careful what you ask for.

Romney- Take away their opportunities here and they will self deport.

Cain- Have an electrified fence at the border with a sign that reads "it will kill you"

Arizona Law- If you look like an illegal you can be asked for your papers.

The republican adgenda has treated mexicans horribly.

70% of hispanics (including those with Mexican heritage) vote democrat. So no, when mexicans assimilate they will not vote republican.

The republicans have recently changed their tune when it comes to mexican immigrants recently because they know they can't win. Mexicans will not forget the way they have been treated... Trust me.

In January Gov't Motors announced the closing of Grand Blanc,MI with 300 union employees. Now same county -the consortium of Delphi-UAW-Gov't Motors announced the Flint closing and ANOTHER 300 jobs.

This is gigantic tax loss for Genesee County and its cities.

These plants would not of closed under a normal bankruptcy- the contracts would have been altered and the jobs saved.

This supplier plant is moving out of the country--most supplier plants to Gov't Motors in Lordstown are foreign content. The Cruze is No.1 in foreign content.. Not that I really care but the majority of GM's jobs would have been spared with a normal bankruptcy.

There are a lot more questions, but this is not the forum.
