How did Americans get the unique view toward illegal immigrants that they have?
If you read the US Constitution, you'll see the plans for America, and how the economy evolves:
Look at the Dollar Bill, you'll see a "key" placed under a "square". (Treasure Dept symbol).
That tells you that the "key" to America is under the "square".
So, now go to the US Constitution, and use this "clue". You'll find two squares, 4 = 2 x 2, and, 9 = 3 x 3.
One is a positive square (odd numbers positive), the other is a negative square (even numbers considered negative).
Then count the location of the statements in the verses, you'll find one of the "secrets" hidden in the constitution:
There are two "levers"
under these "squares".
These are the two "tools" used to manage the economy.
It's very much like driving a car.
One is the "break" = TAXES.
The other is the "accelerator" = IMMIGRATION.
When you want the economy to "boom", you hit the accelerator, increasing immigration.
More mouths to feed, more people to shop, more homes to build for these people ,etc..boom times.
When you want the economy to "slow down", you hit the break, increasing taxes.
People shop less, factories sell less, GDP contracts.
So, now you're the Boss. You find yourself the "President of the United States",
you're driving the car called "American Economy."
If you halt immigration, that's like "taking the foot off the accelerator." The car continues
at the speed it is going at, but it doesn't increase. In fact, because of "frictions" in
the economy, the car will actually slow down on its own, gradually.
If you reduce taxes, that's like taking your foot off the break. This action doesn't speed
up the car, it just reduced the drag, so that the car can coast at whatever rate it's
Now if you want a total financial collapse, take your foot off the accelerator and hit the brakes.
That's stopping immigration and raising taxes, simultaneously.
As you can see, using the accelerator and the break, you can decide to drive the economy anyway
For the past 200 years, the US has hit the accelerator, and this has caused all the boom in America.
Donald Trump plans to build a Wall, and stop the flow of immigrants. So, he is planning to halt the boom.
How fast the economy collapses all then depends on what he does with taxes.
If he raises taxes, we get a quick crash.
If he lowers taxes, we get a slow down, but no crash.
If he keeps taxes the same, we get something in between.
Lowering taxes alone, cannot stimulate the economy. This is known as "PUSHING ON A STRING."
That happened during the last depression.
It requires "demand" to come from somewhere. So, either the government has to spend alot, or you need more people to jump start the economy again.
The US is destined to keep growing or crash.
Take your pick .
