If this immigration issue leads to some sort of national or upgraded ID card that confirms citizenship, maybe there is a silver lining.

That would be just the time to register voters. Same as a 'tick off' when getting a drivers licence, (Is that in place anywhere?) ticking a box would have you registered and that could even be coded to the 'smart' card.. Let's see someone challenge that at the polls..

I hear right-wing heads exploding as they realize that all the legal brown people they force into this would become active voters.. Just what is the right wing side on this? I thought they were against big govamint intrusion in their lives.. maybe they don't figure they would be included at the checkpoints..

Anyways, whatever steps people will have to take to establish or prove citizenship, make voter registration the default.

Thoughts?

40 Years of Reaganism Behind This Disastrous Train Crash

A train derailed and crashed into a station in Hoboken, New Jersey during rush hour this morning, reportedly leaving at least one person dead and more than 100 others injured.

After everyone was rescued from the train, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called into CNN and expressed concern and confusion about the accident, asking "How could this happen?"
