While I'm a Fil-Am Republican, I'm not opposed to the Dream Act legislation. I know that there will a lot of Asian and Hispanic children who will benefit from it. They could be our own relatives and friends. I'm making it clear though that Republicans are not against minorities as some other people think. Republicans are only against waste of taxpayers' hard-earned dollars and spending of money that we don't have because we don't want to jeopardize the future our children's children. The real reason why many Americans and Washington leigislators are opposed to this is because of ignorance. They seem to have forgotten the fact that the reason why the United States is the greatest nation on the face of the earth is because of those hard-working and resourceful immigrants who came to this country in search of better life and opportunity. Those uninformed Americans oppose this legislation because they are misled by those people who are still living in the past-----those with misguided beliefs or those who are just plain racists. The Dream Act, if it ever passes, would be one of the most noble legislations ever conceived by congressional lawmakers in Washington. And I'm sure that the Founding Fathers and Framers of the U.S. Constitution would have fully endorsed it. What's wrong if this great nation allows those kids and young adults to gain citizenship? We have seen most of them doing their part as student leaders and brave young soldiers ready to give their lives for a country that they have always called their own. They are law-abiding citizens who possess God-given talents and potentials to make this country even greater. But other Americans don't see it that way. What they mistakenly see is "free education and free health care" for those young people. And sadly, I don't think that they have even read and fully comprehend the guidelines and provisions of the Dream Act. Let's just hope and pray that they are enlightened. Don Azarias

Quote of the Day

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.~Calvin Coolidge~
