    Well, to cross-thread, I know of at least one vote that Trump would retain if he went ahead and let 'er fly.

    They are coming. They are coming here.

    Be afraid.

    Really? Because he wants to call someone who came here illegally "illegal"?

    But, again, you act like Trump is barely able to hold himself back from saying your favorite word. Do you really believe that's the case?

    Not only do I not "really believe that's the case," I've never said or even implied that.

    That might well be the dumbest post I've ever seen on this board.

    Are you equating the "phrase "illegal immigrant" with your favorite word?

    Then, again, why do you keep saying things like "If he went ahead and let 'er fly"?

    Having been married to one, I know this has been an issue in the Latino community for a long time.

    Here's the thing: The act of immigrating is what's illegal. Once they're here, they're committing no crime at all simply by staying here. Even the act of getting here isn't technically a "crime."

    BTW, Dick, please feel free to go through my posts, then decide whether I'm a Trump supporter.

    I'll give you a hint: The answer isn't yes.

    Is it legal?

    I don't know that Donald Trump is a racist. I very much suspect that a significant percentage of his supporters are.
