    Why Republicans Lost The Election!

    I think that is a good analysis. If I could change one plank it would be immigration, I would give out all the green cards the spanish wanted and they could renew them every 6 months for $50 as long as they worked 4/6 months and had no felonies. I would put a 5 mile buffer on the border and say anyone in the desert areas after dark would be shot because only illegal drug trade would be there as I just made it legal for everyone else to come across. Citizen ship requirements would remain the same. Why the latinos don't see that the democrats only want they here to exploit them I don't know, they should make them legal and require employers to provide coverage and benefits as they do everyone else. It is the big money wanting to exploit and make modern day slaves of them that doesn't want to make them legal and so hard to come here legally. They don't really want to stop them from coming they just want them here illegally so they can exploit them. Both sides are guilty of this but I would totally change it and thereby get the latino vote as they are good conservative people for the most part and hard working. The second thing I would do is make minimum wage $10, the third thing is no more unemployment or welfare benefits instead I give you a job at $10 cleaning streets, parks, babysitting, answering phones. Dignity not handouts.

      That's an excellent idea! Why should people be allowed to sit on their butts watching TV all day while collecting public aid checks, free food and health care? Making them work for those freebees would greatly reduce those on the dole. AND they'd have to pay into SS, and other taxes which would be a win/win for the states and the feds.

      IF they had to earn those benefits, there would be little resentment among those of us who work and pay taxes.

      I only wonder why our "great government" leaders haven't thought of this? Oh, yes, it's because they are Democrats!
