I don't have the energy after a long day to respond to the guy attacking me so I'll just quickly respond to you since you seem incredibly reasonable
much like Marlee Grace (I'm close on the name right?).
I totally get what you're saying. Illegal immigration causes problems. It's unfair to hardworking Americans. I totally understand that as I've
said at least ten times by now.
My entire point as I apparently still can't get across (since I'm perceived as some stuck up raging asshole who can't understand anything) is that
you shouldn't waste your time and energy blaming the illegals. They are doing what's best for then and their family and taking advantage of what is
being allowed (it's definitely bring allowed if not officially as many have said and I agree with).
I'll make two analogies to try and illustrate my point.
Is an illegal lying or bs'ing on taxes (I thought they never paid taxes?) worse than a m(b)illionaire or mega corporation doing the same thing?
Citizenship gives you the right to lie and steal from hardworking Americans? Or is it that doing it for greed without work more American than for
your family with blood sweat and years? In my opinion these illegal immigrants are showing more American values than our corporate rulers,
citizenship or no.
. Not to mention that one family of illegals is less of a tax burden than a government subsidized tax evading corporation.
This last sentence is highly debatable but the spirit of this paragraph before that is less so.
Secondly and more to my real point. Compare illegal immigration to outsourcing. Both are driven at the core of things by cost cutting, profit hungry
businessman who give literally no #s about America or its citizens. We can agree on that right? So when you hear about outsourcing do you think
"screw those Chinese people for taking our jobs to try and escape crushing poverty" or do you think "screw those businessmen selling out our hard
working blue collar Americans just to line their pockets with even more money"? The latter is the correct thought. You are entitled to the former
and I've heard it a million times but this Chinese people trying to get by are not worried about blue collar American workers. Why should they be?
That's not their problem. The American businessmen or at least our government or citizens should be the ones worrying about it. So if you followed
my analogy don't get mad at illegals for doing something totally reasonable from their perspective.
People keep saying that the state of Latin American countries is not America's problem. On the same note the welfare of America is not the problem
of these illegal immigrants. Why should they care about Americans over their own family?
Once again to reiterate. Illegal immigrants cause problems. If things were being run properly we could probably just accept them legally or at the
least cover the expense easily. Our national and state budgets are being decimated by a very diverse set of issues but the biggest one which causes
all of the others at least in part, is the overarching and complete failure of the capitalist system and the banking system running it behind the
Seriously can you not see how we've let capitalism go too far? We act like it's an infallible system but it's clearly failed just as hard as all
the others humanity has tried. Are we waiting to collapse like the Soviet Union before we admit our failures? I guess so since the majority of
Americans call someone talking like I do a communist or socialist or dumbass or fool or small minded or any other number of things.
When you think you're always right and refuse to question the principles underlying your problems things never get better. I learned that the hard
way. Did this post help at all? It's amazing how difficult it is to get people to see past tiny issues towards the underlying ones causing them.
