Basically what we are talking about here is basic human services. The measure is basically just a thinly vailed form of racism.
Oh jeez, I completely misread what you wrote (even though I quoted it), and responded badly as a result. Please accept my apologies.
Are you kidding? In all feciousness, here's a great idea: Lets have everyone from every country, especially non-citizens, participate in our voting
process. That is fair isn't it? In the mean-time, if you feel so strongly that everyone in Arizona wants to support non-citizens, then why don't
you start up a charity and see how many people contribute to it?
I am sick of this attitude that we have an ethical, political, and fiscal responsibility to care for the world's poor. You know what? If you feel
that way, make a donation! I do! I feel sorry for these poor schmucks who are bring paid minimum wage, and barely scraping by because they are being
forced to pay for people --with their taxes-- that the mexican govt. can't or won't bother itself to help. This should never have been any other
way. The American people have spoken, respect it!
