The US Border Patrol reports that fewer illegal aliens are crossing the US Southern Border to look for work in the USA. A greater percentage of criminals are crossing for the purpose of narcotics trafficking, but the Department of Homeland Security doesn't want to go into that because it makes them look bad.
Why is this?
In 2012, Americans will pay $4 trillion in taxes. That is $152 billion MORE than they will spend on housing, food and clothing combined. That’s right, Uncle Sam is now a bigger expense in our lives than the costs of food, housing and clothing combined. So when Obama talks about tax rates being low compared to what they used to be, laugh in his lying face. Sure, rates are lower, but rates don’t tell the whole story. Rates don’t cover tariffs, fees, excise, use and sale taxes, they don’t account for disappearing and fading deductions, they ignore the alternative minimum tax, and they don’t account for a million other hidden taxes and the cost of regulations.

When the economy is bad enough that illegal aliens no longer want to swim the Rio Grande, you should consider whether or not you want this to be continued by the same administration for another four years.
