    According to the AP news, forty six million dollars in refunds, went to illegals in Atlanta Georgia. All living at the same address.

    Hmm? That's less than half of Obama's up coming vacation plans.

    There was a comment in the article of someone saying that "if the Republicans want to get back the Hispanic vote......... Question, when did the Republicans ever have that vote? And, do they really need it? Calculations have shown that if Romney had gotten 75% of that vote he still would have lost. The Republicans need to get out the base of Republicans/conservatives first, then get the majority of that large flexible center vote that really wins elections. No party wins with minority votes and far left or far right votes only. The center is where the Republicans need to look. That's what wins Presidential elections.

    It's a sad day when a major political party has to agree to support illegal activity on a large scale in order to attract more voters... and in so doing, go against one of their core platform dictums that has been in place for decades. Some of the most respected former party stalwarts would turn in their graves if things come to that.

    I read an article a few weeks ago that explained that all the Republicans had to do to prevail in the last election was to get out the usual non-minority voters who chose not to vote last year for whatever reasons. The Republicans can still prevail on the national level without compromising their rule of law principles and becoming more like the democrats.
