2016 might have a latino president take office.
Christy haha, he needs to lose 150 pounds before you can even mention him as a candidate for the GOP nomination. He's got about as good a chance as I've got to be President in 2016.

I think it's time for conservatives to realize that the Republican party as we know it is dead. Absolutely no chance they win in 2016, Hilary Clinton will be President after Obama.

Sorry man, I am not going to click on any link to wingnutville.

But, what I will say is this, if a person is born an American, with all the resources and opportunities available to them by virtue of being a citizen of arguably, the richest and most prosperous country the world has ever seen, and he/she is still competing with undocumented Mexicans for low end, toilet cleaning and burger flipping jobs, then illegal immigration is the least of their problems.

And yes, there are plenty of Mexicans in New England doing the same kinds of jobs they do in the south.

Lol, since you won't visit the link I'll summarize. The unemployment rate started to fall when Alabama cracked down on illegal immigration. It fell much faster than the national average. So much for the claim that Americans won't take those jobs.

Plenty of Mexicans in New England? What are you smoking, man? Other than the upper plains that's the most lily white region of the country. And what few Mexicans are there probably all live in Boston, legally.

Newsflash: Obama is not going to do a thing to get rid of illegals. In fact, he will probably legalize as many as he can.

Also, he doesn't need the Republicans to work with him on immigration: he can legalize through executive order just like his partial amnesty earlier this year.

Actually Obama has deported more illegals than any other president.

RE: The Official Presidential Election Thread
Anybody read the news today? Like a script the MSM is now pushing the 'Fiscal Cliff' narrative and story. It did not matter whom got elected this December massive Austerity (ala UK, Spain, Italy style) is coming to America. Obama punted the real Grand Bargain to December and in his own words is "egear" to get a deal done. Him with Congress and the "Supercommitee" will soon slash and cut, and raise taxes on a good chunk of Anericans (Romney would of done the same). This election was a total pony show to distract people from this and to make wise choices in selecting representatives whom will be voting on this.

Welcome to the great hangover.

Conservatives have been bitter and angry for the last 4 years, and after last night, they are suicidal.

Well of course Republicans are suicidal.

Being a closet homosexual will do that to you.


The closet homosexual thing is sooooo lame.

you've evidently not heard of Europe, illegal immigrants? hah you should venture over to the shores of our continent where you will see illegal immigrants from Africa and other states where the USA has been involved in wars (afghanis, iraqis, somalis etc). Only states with dictators seem to have very secure borders because they don't have human rights activists there bitching about conditions for those looking for more fruitful shores

Fuck yeah, speakeasy.

The only way to solve this problem is for a credible moderate, probably have to be Democrat, to forge an alliance that spans Asians, Blacks and Whites and as many sane hispanics as possible on solving this single issue.

"Special Acceptable Negro Pass"-- that is grimly funny.
I think Obama's election and re-election does show there is some very significant progress in American open-mindedness, although these things take a long, long time, like centuries. I'm white, and I hope his election helps black people feel less left out.

Welcome to the great hangover.

The words 'fiscal cliff' are now everywhere in the mainstream media (for no reason obviously, since it's the last thing the US should be worrying about at the moment). So now we know that the big boys are pro-austerity (actually we knew this already as Wall Street sided predominantly with Romney). Krugman has a great argument as to why this is - if you can convince politicians that 'business confidence' is on a knife edge, and only austerity will make the difference between business confidence and meltdown, the influence of business interests will expand relative to the interests of the electorate.

Nobody is going to pay you $50/hr to clean toilets. Without cheap Mexican labour, the US economy will collapse and businesses will go bankrupt.

You are hyperbolizing to prove your point. You don't have to pay 50 bucks an hour to clean toilets but what you can do is pay a living wage. A wage that you are able to work for and you will not need any "handouts." And paying living wages would not bankrupt the country but we all going to have to pay a little more. There are union maintance i.e. janitors jobs in NY that pay $15 an hour plus benefits and they have no problem attracting Americans, in fact a sizeable portion of those workers are White. Therefore, illegals and Project dwellers (who have most of their living expenses covered by the State) are the only ones who can "afford" to work for minimum wage or less.

Nobody can possibly live on just the minimum wage, the elites who run this country know this. The vast welfare state that Republicans love so much to bitch and moan about is really a backdoor subsidy to big business. Big business gets plenty of workers who are able to "afford" to work for minimum wage and the State in turn will subsidized those workers living expenses with section 8, food stamps, medicaid and child care. Plus the workers will have disposable income to buy chinease made crap they don't need. Thus, taxpayers are the 10 roommates in the 1 bd apartment. This is the 21st century version of company towns.

And then you have the Earned Income Tax credit. This is the true reason why poor Americans even bother to work. Provided that you work and have two kids you will get at least a 10k check from the IRS. Minimum wage is 15k a year so this is almost a 50% of their pay. You do not get more money for having more than two kids. I guess this is probably the reason why in the hood you don't really see large families like that while the illegal family next door has a gang of kids under crushing poverty mind you.(no papers =no Social security = no w2= no Earned Income Tax credit) poor people respond to incentives.

Trust me, Hispanic day laborers are not some sort of noble race who enjoy working 12+ hour days for $100 making your shitty turkey bacon sandwhich. They do it because they do not have a choice.
