Now that corporations can support candidates openly as by the "Supreme court" just look who win and who is behind the campaign funds that tells who corporation or fat rat in the financial business will actually be running the nation, the sad thing is that now foreign interest will be pouring money at will.
It is true when it comes as "money talks and BS walk" . . .

McCain needs to be replaced but JD Hayworth was not the answer. He would have been worse than McCain actually. I understand the desire to kick everyone out of office, but the replacements cannot be politicians like JD Hayworth. So I'm not happy McCain will most likely win reelection, but I am also very happy Hayworth won't be elected.

And you seem too brainwashed by propaganda to be of any use to anyone for anything.
The human trafficking has stopped huh? The border fence is clearly visible huh? ICE is responding to every call to make pick ups and deport back huh? If you don't live in Arizona and see what is going on WTF do YOU know huh?
National Guard troops assigned to the Southwest border will begin to arrive Aug. 1, and the federal government is sending other reinforcements to stem the flow of illegal immigrants and narcotics entering the state, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Monday.
"These troops will provide direct support to federal law enforcement officers and agents working in high-risk areas to disrupt criminal organizations seeking to move people and goods illegally across the Southwest border," Napolitano said.
Call it a rare bipartisan moment if you like, but the U.S. House easily approved a $600 million bill Tuesday authorizing more than 1,000 additional border agents and surveillance drones to patrol the border with Mexico.
With the House back from a break for a one day session, the legislation was passed quickly under suspension of usual rules -- meaning Republicans could have blocked the fast-paced action. But they chose not to, and the measure sailed through on a voice vote. Although it is identical to a version approved by the Senate last week, the two bills must still technically be reconciled, meaning the plan can't go to President Obama for his signature until next month since the Senate is on summer recess.
WASHINGTON - President Obama will send at least 450 more federal agents, drug-sniffing dogs, X-ray scanners, intelligence analysts, and other law enforcement resources to the US-Mexico border in what administration officials yesterday called a comprehensive response to fight Mexican drug cartels and keep violence from spilling into the United States.
In a bid to remake the enforcement of federal immigration laws, the Obama administration is deporting record numbers of illegal immigrants and auditing hundreds of businesses that blithely hire undocumented workers.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency expects to deport about 400,000 people this fiscal year, nearly 10 percent above the Bush administration's 2008 total and 25 percent more than were deported in 2007. The pace of company audits has roughly quadrupled since President George W. Bush's final year in office.
Arizona is the state that has had enough of the federal governments INACTION to this issue.
