You know, you care and it does matter just like the DHS/FEMA demands.
The Electoral College is the way someone can win without getting the most votes. It was created to suit travel and communications conditions as they were in Colonial times.
How come nobody has introduced a bill to do away with it?
If you ask me, those jerks in the senate shouldn't be allowed to do our voting for us. They are a throwback from colonial times also.
We should have a system so that all voters can vote on those bills. the crooked bastards get swayed this way and that by lobbyists special interest groups and pressure groups.
Right now they are putting off doing something about illegal aliens by fiddling aroung with making English the official language. Now that it is official de we still have to see everything written in Spanish and English so the Latinos can avoid learning english?
All those sorry suckers including GWB have to do is enforce the existing laws instead of weakening and watering them down.
If it means a head of lettuce costs $2 instead of 1$ so be it. If all the companys that employ illegals have to pay real wages and withhold taxes they will all be on the same level playing field and none of them will loose anything.
Businesses that employ those illegals are saving money and producing cheaper goods but any savings we get are more than offset by having to support thos illegals in other ways with out tax money.
Ever go to a Walmart and send a moneygram? 90% of people in line are Latinos sending money to Mexico. It costs less to send money to Mexico that it does to send it to the US. The Mexican economy depends on that money comming from the US.
Guess I got into a rant here but I feel better now.
