Wanna know why we are debt as a country? It isn't the war. *edit*

Lets get a few things straight, I dont care if the spending was less than 1% of our budget. It would still be to much. I also dont care what color anyone is. If they are breaking the law, I dont like them and they dont deserve to be here. As far as the process to become a citizen, no it shouldn't be "easier", but there should be more help for those who dont understand. Just because some one can't read, doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed to become a citizen. To all those turning it into a race problem. Really? Do you not have a more intelligent response? It is like you have no other cards to show, so you pull the crappiest one you can find. Way to show just how uneducated you really are. Nothing I will ever say will have to do with someones races, because *gasp* I dont give a crap what color you are. It doesn't make you better or worse. But what does is how you act. And horrible actions are universal.

 

 

I got this as an email. I didn't check the sites yet, but thought I would share. I am all for immigration, if done the way it is supposed to be done. But this is insane! Our children could have better schools if the money wasn't being spent on people who aren't even citizens in this country. And the whole health care crap, imagine how cheap it would be if this money was spent to lower cost to us? We wouldn't be pulling money out of thin air to pay for universal health care that is going to pull this country even deeper into this hole it has dug itself.

Oh, its true! How else would they survive? Its "hard" for some of them to get jobs.........I mean...they arent living off the land lol I wish something could be done..........but really..........i doubt anything can. I wish it would be easier to be a citizen but then it would just be us citizens causing the deficit.

I don't get into these posts, but this stuck out because my birthdate is 3.3.83 LOL


 It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

I agree with this.  I live in Texas and they are everywhere!  I can speak and read spanish and refuse to on principle.  I think since they came to this country they should learn English.  It ticks me off that we have to learn their language because they REFUSE to learn ours.  Any other country that you go to, you have to learn the language, why should we be so different?

Frankly. I think if you want an honest perspective or understanding why our nation is in debt you should be researching things like:

Corporate Welfare

Our trade deficit

Our current "Free" trade agreements

The cost of our military industrial compledx

The amount of money we send overseas to countries like Israel, Egypt and others (Isral alone is nearly $4 billion a year).

And many many other things.

Social Safety net programs,  are the smallest expenditures in our national budget. That's counting all the programs from: medicaid, medicare, food stamps, emergency assistance programs and every other social welfare program that is offered in the US. And very very few of them  allow any usage from illegal aliens.
