Why do people keep talking about gas prices and illegal immigration?

Why is it that I hear everyone asking about these subjects but no intelligent answers? Do you think that is the problem people do not educate themselves on these issues so they just believe whatever the government tells them? If you want to complain about something why not look it up first so you have a valid argument to start with? Instead of why are gas prices so high, why don't we kick out all illegal immigrants.

  • There are much more important issues in my opinion. Unaffordable health care with 50 million Americans not having health care, most of whom can't afford it, is just wrong, as we are the richest country in the world. The other issue that is much more important than the cost of gas is The IRAQ Occupation, which is costing us billions of dollars per month, and this has a trickle-down effect on our whole economy.

  • Because some people don't watch the news and rely on random people on CM to educate them. I saw the post you are probably referring to. The logic is complete backwards. Unfortunately many people just don't know any better and believe whatever grammy and pops say (this goes with parenting, politics, religion, you name it) Sad, really.

  • Maybe because they are two of the BIGGEST issues in our country. Most people arent informed, or rely solely on the media for their information. Both issues are very two sided and very controversial.

  • We dont kick them out because our government and lobby groups controll our laws and governing process untill ALL of us wrote our law makers and complain, nothing will be done

  • one estimation of the cost to deport all illegal immigrants is $206 BILLION. a more effective approach would be to penalize those who hire illegal labor.
    Gas prices are as high as they are due to the decline of the American dollar, and speculation.
