Vote for Pedro?

Original post made by Tom Cushing, Danville, on Jun 28, 2013

Now that the Supreme Court has timidly deputized local trial Judge Vaughn Walker to speak for it on Prop 8; and setting aside the stunning arrival on the national scene of the Filibusterin’ Filly, TX State Senator Wendy Davis; the big political question of the summer involves immigration. Can a fractious and fractured Congress convene around the campfire, commune, and actually craft legislation to create a trail out of limbo for millions, and address border security? Remarkably, the odds look pretty good; such a bill has just passed the Senate, with at least some bi-partisan support.

We do not need more entitlement dem voters. We do not need more illiterates flooding our schools. Deport them all and open the immigration door to those who bring something of value to our shores. Perhaps an education beyond barrio 3rd grade? Perhaps values of a free society? Perhaps knowledge of English? The dems want more low information voters to further ruin our nation.
