Immigration = Corporate Welfare + Collectivist Voters

BY Herschel Smith
6 years, 9 months ago

Immigration = corporate welfare + collectivist voters.  Remember that formula.  Sometimes a comment thread is the best thing to bring out false hope, whether salvation via Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Chris Christie or (yes), even Rand Paul.  Witness this.

John Galtius:

Romney is slick, and I don’t like slick. Slick will play games. Jeb was a great governor of Florida, did a good job, and would make a decent president – if we NEEDED a decent president. We don’t. We need a GREAT president.

Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul – Rand Paul

You media elite can try to shove these guys off on us if you like, but I will ONLY vote for Rand Paul.

Herschel Smith:

Rand Paul = Pro-Immigration (legal). He just wants to turn currently illegal immigration into legal immigration. He is an open borders fanatic just like his Dad. I’ll never vote for him.

John Galtius:

“I do not support amnesty, I support legal immigration and recognize that the country has been enriched by those who seek the freedom to make a life for themselves. However, millions of illegal immigrants are crossing our border without our knowledge and causing a clear threat to our national security. I want to work in the Senate to secure our border immediately. In addition, I support the creation of a border fence and increased border patrol capabilities.

Immigrants should meet the current requirements, which should be enforced and updated. I realize that subsidizing something creates more of it, and do not think the taxpayer should be forced to pay for welfare, medical care and other expenses for illegal immigrants. Once the subsidies for illegal immigration are removed, the problem will likely become far less common.

I support local solutions to illegal immigration as protected by the 10th amendment. I support making English the official language of all documents and contracts.

Millions crossing our border without our knowledge constitutes a clear threat to our nation’s security. Instead of closing military bases at home and renting space in Europe, I am open to the construction of bases to protect our border.

So what part of your lies, Herschel, do you want us to believe?

Herschel Smith:

” … the country has been enriched.” Yea. Only if you are on the board of directors for Monsanto or Archer-Daniels-Midland or the Chamber of Commerce.

“I support legal immigration …” Rand Paul knows exactly what that means.

Apparently you don’t.

Oh, and make sure not to neglect what “legal” immigration means for gun control too.

John Galtius:

So, Mister Democrat, why are YOU supporting Bush?

And frankly, I really am not interested in your conspiracy theories.

Herschel Smith:

You must be joking. Seriously. Is this a joke? If the GOP puts up Bush, Romney or Christie, I’ve already said what I’ll do election night. I won’t even go to the polls. I’ll stay at home, grill steaks, walk the dog, clean my guns, and count my boxes of ammunition. And if they put up Paul, voters may as well put up a democrat. It’s all the same. Count them. Millions upon millions upon millions of new collectivist voters from South of the border to rob your paycheck. Bring on dystopia. Buy guns now. You’ll need them in the coming years.

livingthehighlife:

“clean my guns, and count my boxes of ammunition”

Another internet tough guy.

Herschel Smith:

Off subject. Full stop. Return to on-point comments. Immigration = corporate welfare + collectivist voters. Do you have anything useful to say about the subject? I thought not.

Generally folks don’t understand, but there is no voting our way out of this mess.  No candidate – Romney, Christie, Bush or Paul – has proposed to make a corollary of repeal of the entitlement state a condition of and stipulation for immigration.  Not a single one.  That means welfare, health care, SNAP, etc.  And my daughter is a nurse in an ER, and I know all about the penalties associated with receipt of a patient into the ER, discharge, and receipt of that same patient later for the same condition (meaning that the system is set up to provide beds and long term medical care for patients, regardless of immigration status, in order to avoid astronomical fines to the federal government).  Don’t allow anyone to tell you that we won’t be funding medical care for immigrants.  It’s a lie.  That’s all you need to know.  And immigration includes millions of Islamic voters as well as Hispanic and Latino voters who will vote your gun rights away.

    You’re a better man than I am Cap! I have long ago given up trying to educate idiots. It’s wrong…I know…but when someone refuses to acknowledge FACTS and goes right to straw man arguments and personal attacks…I check out. Keep up the good fight sir!

    It is difficult to argue facts against Prozi’s faith. And while most are atheist, it’s simply amazing the faith they actually have in government always knowing best what is right for us.

    They may be atheist in the literal sense, but most Prozis are card-carrying members of the Church of Big Government. That is their “god” and their faith.

    You can’t argue facts with them because facts contradict their Big Government Bible, and anything that goes against the BGB is, by definition, heresy.

    Blind, unthinking faith is what makes Islamic extremists dangerous. The same can be said for Prozis who worship at the alter of Big Government.

    What people don’t seem to know is the “legal immigration” has been expanded to proportions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muw22wTePqQ

    If this isn’t changed, we will be MORE screwed by the oligarchs.

    The ongoing Legal Mooslem invasion may be worse to society than the larger illegal invasion, but “at this point what difference does it make?”
    ProgreSSives have finally ruined the country. Welcome to the USSA.
    Cleaning your guns, and counting the increase in your ammo seems rational, cya.

    “Once the subsidies for illegal immigration are removed, the problem will likely become far less common.”

    This is called, “Socialism and welfare for me, but not for thee.” And which side of the argument is the collectivist one? Which treats people as groups rather than as individuals?

    I wrote an article about this “invasion”:

    I have removed myself from the voter rolls. I called the national GOP office and told them GOP senators discussing raising taxes was the last straw and I was no longer a registered Republican. The local GOP intern was stupid enough to tell me that raising gasoline taxes would help keep people employed in the oil industry, through higher prices. I was so taken aback by that piece of idiocy I immediately faxed over my voter resignation.

    I will probably register again next year so I can vote against whatever stupid spending propositions come along, but, I will register independent and I will not be voting for any candidates for office.

    I will join Herschel in the counting of boxes of ammo while stockpiling more. I’m going long 243, 308, 06, 45 acp and 22 WMR.

    We don’t have “an immigration problem”. We have a “welfare state” problem. Decades or centuries ago, all our forebears came here to work hard, make a good life for their families, and die free. Would any of us now say theirs was a “problem immigration”? I sure wouldn’t. The difference? Nobody then expected the gov’t to take care of them or bail them out.

    Ask the wrong question; get the wrong answer. Solve the wrong problem; get to solve it all over again next year.
