    I got a call today form a polling company
    asking my a bunch of questions.

    So let's conduct the 1st Annual BCF Presidential pole.

    If you had to vote today, who would
    you vote for?

    Why do you like who you like?

    I like Thompson because of his stance on
    illegal immigration. I think he'd be strong.

    It's a huge issue for me, because my dad
    was almost killed by a drunk fucking illegal.

    They're a fucking brown plague that make
    the whole place shittier. I feel like this
    even though I'm from Mexican decedents.
    They embarrass me. Thank God I'm not
    a 100% Bean.

    I would love Ron Paul, but he's weak
    in the immigration department.

    I voted for Ron Paul, but mainly because John McCain's name isn't on here...I have my eye on McCain.

    Ok, I can't vote again, but if the vote was right now, I'd vote McCain over Paul.

    How do you leave McCain off? I'm not voting for him, because he sponsored that awful immigration bill, but he did win New Hampshire. You can't leave him off.

    Guliani left himself off, until Florida. He has dumped all of his compain efforts on Florida, and is hoping to be the hottest candidate going into Super Tuesday. The scary part is that it might work. The first primaries have been so split that Romney is winning, even though he hasn't won a state yet.

    I'm just pissed that Ron Paul got 9.6% in Iowa, has 4 times the delegate votes of Rudy, and still isn't invited to debates. It's ridiculous how they try to exclude him.

    I honestly hope you're wrong sarge. I mean, you guys don't feel the effects like we do.

    Here's the perfect example.
    An AC installer made 175$ A day.

    Now these fucken contractors get them for 80$

    10000 of them a day brother... Pretty soon, this isn't going to be the USA anymore and that scares the shit outta me.

    I say this, because I see it happening every day.

    It's not our fault that they have a shitty government. Why should we deal with the negative social-economic effects they cause?

    smilemani Well-Known Member

    BTW. I'm not a heartless prick. Look, I love my Mexican side. But I'm an American and I want my daughter to grow up in a safe environment. I've seen it first hand bro. I feel bad for the shit that happens to them there. But may be if we close the border the shitty Mexican government will be forced to deal with their problems and not dump millions of unskilled workers here.

    Know what I mean?

    The only candidate with strong convictions about the border, has already dropped out. That was Tom Tancredo. I love how the media twisted everything he said too. They made it sound like he was going to have trucks loaded down with illegals, shipping them back.

    All he wanted to do was enforce the law, and it's been proven that when you do that, illegals can't work, drive, collect benefits, and they find a way to get home. Enforcing the law....it's such a silly notion.

    I think the best thing I've heard from anybody, during the campaign was (I'm paraphrasing, because I can't find the quote)

    I'll know we have the problem under control, when I don't have to press one for english. - Tom Tancredo

    I never thought you are heartless, I have worked in the restaurant biz on many levels for many years and what I have seen the immigrants work harder and with more integrity than most other people. Also I feel that the contribution to the economy is also greater then we are led to believe. I will look up the stats when I get a chance.

    I don't know bro. I'll do some research as well. Benefits rendered to taxes contributed...

    You think those workers are payn taxes?You think those workers deserve liscences?You think those workers deserve free health care?
    Dude wake up the economy is shit right now...They send all the money back to Mexico..I've worked with several illegal aliens and my wife employs one..I'm not heartless but I look out for my family and my best intrests.Those illegals arn't helping shit..they need to secure those borders and keep them mother fuckers in their own country...My wife is Brazilian and it cost me a shitload of money to get her a green card..and it still costs money.If they want to be here then they should go thru the right channels and be legalized.
