Post Who's your Pres Candidate?
Yay! Just gotta love election season, right?!?
Here's another 'fun' poll to see which Presidential candidate might represent you the 'best / closest'

*One thing I found interesting is that there are more than just the "Yes, No" responses to choose from...*

Here are my results:
Candidate:
88% - Gary Johnson
on economic, domestic policy, immigration, social, healthcare and environmental issues
80% - Ron Paul
on domestic policy, economic, foreign policy, healthcare, environmental, and social issues
60% - Jill Stein
on immigration issues
57% - Barry O
on foreign policy issues
52% - Mittens
on domestic policy issues

Party:
86% - Libertarian
60% - Green
57% - Dem
52% - Rep

Being a Southern CA Resident my entire life I can tell you it is a HUGE Problem. Part of the reason CA is in such a financial crisis is the Billions spent yearly on people that should not be in this country (only because they chose to break our laws to get here rather than go through the proper channels).

Ill Fill out my results later, but was reading everyons responses and this stuck out to me.

I was a little surprised by this, but I'm actually happy about the results. I've long considered myself pretty balanced: on some things I'm right, others I'm left. I know it's just a stupid survey, but it at least bears out those thoughts. Now I have to look into Gary Johnson some more to see what he's all about.

That site must compare you with the "majority of Michigan Voters," meaning, how often you side with the majority view on each subject. There's no way in hell people in Michigan or anywhere else agree 95% on virtually anything, let alone everything.

That's not what it's saying. It's saying that you agree with the majority of voters 95% of the time. Not that 95% of voters agree on issue ____. For example, if 51% of voters support a tax cut, and you are in that 51%, you agree with the majority. It's simply stating that (statistically based on this survey), you share the view of the majority of Michigan voters 95% of the time.

The problem isn't that they are here illegally. The problem is that the state is paying out the benefits in the first place.

Actually, it's both. First and foremost, children of illegal immigrants that are born her should NOT automatically get US citizenship. That is something that needs to change, and fast. It's what draws in a pretty good amount of illegals from Mexico.

Secondly, I agree that illegal (undocumented) immigrants should, in no way, receive any medical benefits or welfare, or any social aid whatsoever. They are not citizens, they are not documented, and they aren't here on work visas. They are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Also, look at the jails in America and see just how many of the inmates are illegals. It's ridiculous how many of them are in there, and drawing from the public well without having put anything into it.

There are folks who come here, with the idea in mind that they want to create a new, better life than what they had in their native land. Those kind of people I have no problem with. In many cases they seek to assimilate into the community, they have a great work ethic, and often times seek to do everything within their power to gain citizenship or at least be here on a legal basis. But it seems there is an ever increasing number of immigrants that come here that want the American way of life to conform to their ideals, that they somehow should simply be accepted, and that the system owes them for being here. THOSE are the people I want out of here.

Deport all illegals in jail. I don't care if they will try to find their way back here. If they do, euthanize them and they won't get a third chance.

Deport all illegals currently on public assistance programs. Once again, if they find their way back, make sure they are in the system and don't get a dime from welfare. If they commit a vioent crime, euthanize 'em.

I'm sorry, but this whole amnesty thing for illegals really just pisses me off. THEY ARE ILLEGAL! Sure, my family came here from Italy. But they all passed through Ellis Island and were documented. I have no family members in my history that committed violent crimes, or sought to change anybody into doing things the way they wanted it. They flew the American flag at their homes, not the Italian flag. And once here they considered themselves Americans. Most importantly, they took every measure to adapt to their new home, including the step of learning the English language.

And just about every ethnic group that came to America was treated unfairly. Jews, Irish, Italians, Polish, Asians, etc. All of them had to deal with prejudice and lived in low income neighborhoods, unless they came here dripping with money. And even then, those that were wealthy didn't exactly get treated with a great deal of respect.

It seems like today, immigrants reach the shores and they want to immediately tell America "hey, I'm here...so kiss my feet then kiss my @ss, cause you have to change everything to suit me and my beliefs".

Sorry, I'm not doing it. And I can't support anyone who does.

What do you do with hospitals that vow to threat everyone that have these people come into their waiting rooms? I know they get more than that (its ridiculous that these people find their way onto welfare rolls, into food banks, etc.), but medical care is something that's tough to get around.

I'd say if a hospital wants to treat all patients on an equal basis, regardless of whether or not they are legal, then they are the ones that absorb the resultant costs. Simple.
