You have a wonderful heart and compassion for others, I totally get that and I admire that. We need more people like you in this world. I have to say
I would have felt the same way and most likely done the same thing.
However, we are talking mass amounts of people. Kind of like a raft that can only take so many people. We can use analogies all day. The point is that
there are laws in place. I suppose I'll throw more analogy as it comes to mind right now: so if you have people come into your home will you allow
them to just break the door down first and say that they have as much right to live there because they are human never mind that it was you that
worked for 30 years to afford. And, your children and wife live there with you but now the strangers that burst into your home are using the washroom
all the time and your wife can't get a chance to get ready for her job, your kids are being shoved aside and no longer have access to the toys you
paid for their personal use.
I understand that not everyone is my enemy. And that is not my angle of this discussion. However, it is a fact that there are bad groups of people who
are feeding off other humans for their own person gain. They have no interest in assimilating, or contributing - they only want to do whatever they
can to make money. Yes, there are bad people in amongst the good.
I was not yelling. THIS IS YELLING. Just so we're clear.
Ha, ha. I do not not hate people, for goodness sake. I have been in therapy the last four years trying to find boundaries on how not to give
everything of myself and to stop giving all my time to strangers other than my own family. You couldn't be more wrong about me. And I do believe your
story. Gosh, it seems like you have had to defend yourself over and over to the point where you think everyone is attacking you.
I'll say this: I'm not even an American. Yes, I am concerned about what is going on. Because what is going on is wrong.
I am a Canadian. Let me tell you how opening the borders is working for us. How the police are so busy escorting and carrying luggage for people
ILLEGALLY crossing the border. Trudeau is moving these people to hotels and homeless shelters displacing Canadian citizens until there is no room for
our own citizens. How does this help anyone? He has only amplified a problem we have in our own country. He is giving these people an allowance. The
people who have been spending years applying legally are bumped to the end of the line. How is this fair? Do you not see the issues at play? Because
these people are getting medical and dental aid it is reducing the little money there is to go around. And my favorite? Apparently there is no money
to help our veterans. So our own country can't handle its own suffering load with the bare necessities, but hey, let's open the door and make it hard
for everybody and make people who already have no where to go at the best of times really have no where to go to even get out of the elements.
Meanwhile the illegal immigrants are living in hotels with an allowance!! Trust me, it's easier for someone from a hot country to live on the streets
year round than it is in -30, -40 degree temperatures for a good 3 months of the year and about -10 for 4 others.
Opening the borders is pure stupidity if there aren't checks and balances in place.
- people who are citizens of a specific country have to make the effort to make the changes.
- apply legally
- stop taking the easy way out and putting the responsibility on other people
- get rid of corrupt governments in your own country
It starts with what one can do at home. How do you think women got rights and voting rights in the past? They didn't run away, they organized, they
fought back, they did what they had to do. How do you think LGBT people are getting their rights? They didn't run away. Why do you think there are
coups in other countries. I don't think it's up to me or anyone else to make it better for people of another country. I am willing to help but I can
only do so much as I am not a citizen.
The world isn't perfect, we don't live in a perfect existence and one cannot open the borders. If you do then a country wouldn't exist. It would be
eaten alive and destroyed.
Common sense is what is lacking and being catered to.
