Do you hear the death knell tolling?

It's sounds like the end of the United States as we know it.After a judge struck down most of the immigration law that Arizona was trying and needing to pass,I fear that our country is nearing it's end. We have a traitor in the White House.A government that doesn't care what the people that elected them want.Illegals are slowly taking our country away from us and no one seems to care.Do you? I don't see too many discussions on Mylot about this.Why not?Have you looked at the conditions of Mexico and other Hispanic countries?Is this what you want our country to become?It's happening right before our very eyes. As long as we let our government not do their jobs when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws,we will be overrun with with illegals that don't pay taxes and don't care about the United States.Don't bring up sales taxes or social security.The sales taxes they pay are nowhere near what legal citizens would pay if they had those jobs and were making a decent wage.The social security that the few that pay into it,are paid from stolen social security numbers.Most illegals are paid with cash.You can't pay into social security without a legal social security number.You can't get a social security number unless you were born in the United states.Why do pro-amnesty idiots argue about this? Why aren't more Americans upset about this?Do the citizens of the United States really care so little about their country that they will sit by and watch their country be taken over by people that don't even care about their own countries?

I have been listening to that ominous sound for 18 months now and am afraid it will continue until we become The Un-United States if Obama continues on his nefarious plans for our county and allows foreign criminals to have rights over the wishes of the American people.. I have seen quite a few discussions about the illegal immigrants problem in the USA and a lot of support for Arizona taking the initiative when the Federal Government ignores our current immigration laws. BTW you said "You can't get a social security number unless you were born in the United states." This is absolutely incorrect I received my Social Security Number before I came to the states. I received it when I got my "Green Card" my daughter also got one. One does not need to be born here...just legally here!

If you look at the countries where immigrants come from, it is not hard to imagine that when the numbers reach high enough in certain areas, those areas also are going to look like the areas where those people came from. It stands to reason. They are not going to come here and start acting like us just because they are here. They bring with them all their habits, lack of standards, customs, lack of expectations, illnesses, poverty mindset and psychological outlooks. Some want to work. But in the meantime, we can see how areas are changing, and not for the better. Look at areas of any larger city that has a significant population of immigrants from certain countries. It looks like a third world nation. And it is. That is where they come from, and that is what they bring with them. It is not their fault, perhaps. But it is taking over more and more of our educational system, our courts, prisons, federal subsidies, and law enforcement. We are becoming them. Look at some cities in France with a large Muslim population. I was watching a documentary on France's Muslims, and you wouldn't recognize it as France anymore. And it's not just about Muslims, either. It is about anyone who comes here in large numbers and brings their country with them.

No, I have more confidence in our system than you do. There have always been extremists who think their way is the only way to run the country, the other side are stupid idiots or psychopathic criminals or some other negative label. Every four years we get a chance to change leaders. Same with our representatives. Laws are always being modified, added, or deleted. That is the way things are. There are more directions than left and right. There is also forward, back, up and down. And the different angles in between. I would be most comfortable when there are more voices and more opinions given as much attention than the loudest ones.

You haven't seen too many discussions on mylot about this? Maybe you've been looking in the wrong topics. Most or some is a subjective term when it comes to what the judge struck down today. Obviously, by virtue of the demonstrations taking place in Az today, what was left in the legislation is more than what the law was before. The governor has not given up, governors of other states have not given up...so you can roll over and whine that folks don't care about this country, but I disagree.
