Illegal Alien...Sounds Good

Over at RightWingRocker I came across this post. If you are not one to read longer posts (which this really isn't), I'll attempt to summarize. It addresses a question a guy I work with had for me just the other day. How can I become an illegal alien?

This particular gentleman wrote his Senator to inquire about the procedure.

My primary reason for wishing to change my status from U.S. Citizen to
illegal alien stem from the bill which was recently passed by the Senate and for
which you voted. If my understanding of this bill's provisions is accurate, as
an illegal alien who has been in the United States for five years, all I need to
do to become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and income taxes for three of the
last five years. I know a good deal when I see one and I am anxious to get the
process started before everyone figures it out. Simply put, those of us who have
been here legally have had to pay taxes every year so I'm excited about the
prospect of avoiding two years of taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is
there any way that I can apply to be illegal retroactively? This would yield an
excellent result for me and my family because we paid heavy taxes in 2004 and
2005. Additionally, as an illegal alien I could begin using the local emergency
room as my primary health care provider. Once I have stopped paying premiums for
medical insurance, my accountant figures I could save almost $10,000 a year.
Another benefit in gaining illegal status would be that my daughter would
receive preferential treatment relative to her law school applications, as well
as "in-state" tuition rates for many colleges throughout the United States for
my son. Lastly, I understand that illegal status would relieve me of the burden
of renewing my driver's license and making those burdensome car insurance
premiums. This is very important to me given that I still have college age
children driving my car.

I couldn't resist. It's just too good to summarize. Points clearly to the idiocy of the entire thing.

Just an observation.
