Its UNFORTUNATE that this country has failed to listen to Ron Paul!!!
This guy clears know about the Foreign and Monetary policies than other candidates. He got more money from the troops than others!! People who watched the recent BIASED UNFAIR CNN Replublican debate will understand.

John McCain wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years if needed, Where is the money going to come from? China or the Sovereign Wealth funds?? Not to mention the Social Security fund which is slowly heading towards bankruptcy. Already, they are starting to cut some of the medicare benefits!

Good Luck with Democrats supporting LEGAL Immigration??
Voting record during the CIR debate will convince how they embraced illegal immigration unlike the republicans!!! Atleast the Republicans will do something for Legal Immigration.

This should be closed as this turns out to be a distraction from IV focus on Letter campaign.

That's true. Only citizens of USA can have political views and can express their views. H1B and H4 holders expressing views might not be legal.

As I understand H1B and H4 holders can not influence politics. Hope that USCIS is not monitoring this thread.

That is not true. We can support any candidate, endorse or even contribute to their campaign.

Ron Paul. I live in his constituency and I have met his staff for IV related lobbying. They have also agreed to write letter to the President. Nice and very understanding people. He has clarity of thoughts. Unfortunately he doesn't have the glamor that others have. His family is known to be a very simple and down to earth type in the Lake Jackson area. People here have very high regards for him.

We can support any candidate by doing voluntary work.

We can not accept any pay at all.

Also we can not contribute for anyone's campaign. That is considered infringement by foreigners in US politics.

I am afraid, you are ignorant of law and that is not an escuse anywhere.

Here's the rule for your reference.

A federal statute prohibits persons who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents (that is, holders of "green cards") from contributing any money to candidates for state or federal office, or to American political parties. The provision was originally enacted in the 1970s. In the 1990s, the statute received some public attention when it was alleged that fundraisers for the Democratic Party and its candidates were attempting to circumvent the law by raising money from foreign sources, including the People's Republic of China.

If treating foreigners on par with U.S. citizens and permanent residents would be sufficient to address the fear of foreign corruption, then the statutory ban could fail the operative test under the First Amendment. After all, the test requires that an infringement on the freedom of speech be "necessary" to the attainment of a compelling interest. And if there were other, narrower ways to address the corruption fear, then a flat ban on contributions by foreigners would unnecessary and thus unconstitutional.

In 2002, the law was amended with the adoption of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act--also known as "BCRA" or "McCain-Feingold." The amendment made clear that the foreign money ban applied to state as well as federal elections, a position that the Federal Election Commission had taken under the old wording of the statute.

If you need more information, here's the link. Search for the information and Read it.

Guys do not geopradize your Job Privilage through H1 or your "GC Dream".
Think twice before you "endorse" your support and throw dirt on politicians in this country. Avoid trouble where ever possible to stay clean.

Again I would urge the Admins to close this and delete the thread. a "Vote" for us in the community is a far away dream may be after 4 more prez election in US (10 years in GC and 5 years for citizenship). Who knows whats in hold for us in future?

Well you are wrong here..Only donations or contributions are banned not discussions and nobody is trying to influence the outcome with that.
