Hi, I'm new to this welcome thing, as I'm also new to this forum. I just joined last night after finding you totally by accident. I guess the most significant things I can say about myself are that I'm a born-again conservative who was a registered Democrat for 35 years until I woke up and smelled the coffee and consequently switched to the Republican party about 8 years ago. My big issue for the last several years has been illegal immigration, which of course is a major issue here in California, especially in L.A. where I live. I'm taking bit of a break from that right now, I guess because I'm becoming really focused on this economic crisis. Anyway, I hope to hear from some of you. Thanks.
