Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Whether you are for or against SB1070, the basis of a democracy is that we have the freedom of choice and the ability to make decisions in regards to our social structure and the laws that we live by. These are decided by a majority of the citizens. Respecting the majority rule may be difficult at times but as a free society we must respect the process, put away the name calling and make changes through education and cooperation. The American system of government, while not always flawless, has through out our history prevented small anarchist and radical groups from pushing their agendas and we as a people have come along way toward equality and civil rights. The beauty is that historically main stream America usually comes around and makes the most humanitarian decisions. I must say, that throwing temper tantrums, calling for boycotting and legal action because a particular side was not in the majority, goes against the established order of our democratic society. So let us all take a deep breath and when both sides begin to reach out with a little respect and compromise we just may find a solution the border and immigration debacle, because as we now are experiencing, it is in the hands of the American people where it should be. Now what we as a nation do with it is up to us all.

Re: “Eye of the Storm

You are all welcome to visit an independent self sponsored website from the border and dedicated to border awareness and issues with a video section and a forum that welcomes intelligent commentary from any side to help find solutions through communication. One thing stands out, and that is, we must all work together and at times compromise.
