Undocumented Guests?

After reading Dengler's post, Illegal Immigration - The New Frontierspeople, I thought this was a great response to it.



Isn't that an interesting perspective? It's absurd, of course, but so is the entire issue of Immigration.

So many people are missing the point when talking about Immigration. There is a very distinct difference between Immigration and Illegal Immigration.

Aside from the total whack-jobs, I don't know of a single thinking American that is against Immigration. I know plenty that are against Illegal Immigration, myself included. I'm all for immigration. This is a great country, I don't blame anyone for wanting to live here, just do it the right way. I really don't think that is too much to ask. Do you?

Keep that in mind when a dishonest politician calls anyone against Illegal Immigration a racist.

This reminds me of the Health Care debate.

Here again, nobody is saying people should not get Health Care, it's about who pays for it. The Pro-Obama Care side would have you believe that those of us against Obama Care want people to die in the street. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The resistance to Obama Care is WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR IT? It's not free health care coverage, someone has to pay for it! Should you and I pay, through our taxes, for the people that would rather buy a new car and a bigscreen TV and whatever else is more important than taking care of their or their families health insurance needs?

Personally I don't.

Unless of course, all of Obama's nurses are required to look like her. If that's the case, forget everything I just said, I'm in!

OK, back to Illegal Immigration...

Here is an example of a politician either talking out of his ass, or lying. It has to be one or the other.

“This bill is unconstitutional,” said Rep. Joe Baca, D-San Bernardino. “It would change one of the most basic principles that our nation was founded on: If you were born in the United States, you’re an American.”

This was Baca's statement in response to the bill that Dengler pointed to at the end of his post.

Do you see a problem here?

The Fourteenth Amendment provides a broad definition of citizenship, overruling the decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857), which had excluded slaves and their descendants from possessing Constitutional rights.

Now do you see the problem?

It was written to give slaves and their descendants equal rights under the constitution...in 1868.

Now I'm a little fuzzy on exactly when the United States was founded, but I'm pretty sure it was a few years before 1868! You know, if by a few we're talking about almost 100.

The 14th Amendment had nothing to do with any principle the United States was founded on, let alone the 'Most Basic Principle.' We wrongfully brought the slaves here against their will. They did not choose to come here, legally or illegally. To right this wrong, we gave them citizenship. That must be accompanied by equal protection under the constitution.

Since we didn't drag Illegal Immigrants here against their will, or even invite them, this is a different story all together. Slaves were granted citizenship, Illegals have not. Yet, anyway.

So is Joe Baca lying, or is he a retard? Sorry, I mean mentally challenged. You tell me, because I would believe either.

All politicians, Democrats and Republicans, should be looked at from a Distrust-But Verify point of view. None of the Trust-But Verify nonsense, they prove over and over again that they don't deserve that courtesy.


Politicians are liars and thieves, until they prove otherwise.

Great post, Fu2rman.

"Distrust but verify" ought to be the mantra of this generation.
