Immigration Issue

Posted by Troy on 11th November 2012 in Political

After this last election, it is apparent that neither side will have any stomach to tackle the immigration issue.  We never really had this type of problem before.  Rogue crossings from Europe were difficult to pull off at best.  Now we have a subset of the population willing to hold the law hostage with their vote.  I actually wouldn’t be against open boarders…except for the free stuff.  However, we’re never going to get rid of the free stuff, so here is what we are going to do, and it’s really the only reasonable thing left to do:

Anyone that is here must register with bio-metrics to be eligible for this program.  Anyone under this program cannot attain full citizenship.  This person must pay a fee of $25,000.  This is much more than anyone else who immigrates here legally.  Every year, they are required to file a tax return.  Using e-verify, employers will be required to withhold a high percentage of their income.  This will generate a refund due on their return.  These refunds will eventually eat away at fee.

There is a reason why we don’t just open the floodgates to the rest of the world.  The real reason is that people are supposed to come here and assimilate, but  people are no longer doing it.  They are coming here and then they are secluding themselves.  They are refraining from learning our language (English).  They proudly display their old flag.  As such, they never learn what it means to be American.  They never learn the Constitution.  They don’t learn the history.  That has got to change… however, the Democrats would like things just the way they are.  Obama and Clinton and the other driving forces of the Democratic party believe in global governance.  They believe in the UN.  They believe in LOST.  They believe in multinational organizations.  They believe in a global currency.  They believe in a global carbon tax.  The list goes on and one.  Read the writing on the wall.

Long Live the Constitution!

More Thoughts on Dream Act Lite

Posted by Troy on 19th June 2012 in Current Events, Political

I originally said that Executive nullification is a viable way to get around a “bad law.”  That is to say, if there is a bad law on the books, the President can choose not to enforce it.  Conservatives may rail about it, but Romney is talking about doing the same thing by offering waivers to all 50 states on the Health Care Act.  However, what Obama is doing is slightly different.  What he is advocating is exempting specific groups of people (young illegals).  This is different.  Imagine if Obama declared that he would not enforce insider trading laws against middle-aged white men?  let me explain it this way.  Sickened by the way cocaine convictions are treated differently between blacks and whites, Obama declares that he is not going to enforce the drug laws.  Well, that’ll probably cost him his job, but you know what would be infinitely worse?  If he were to say that he wasn’t going to enforce drug laws only when they are committed by blacks.  Everyone would call foul and should call foul.  The same is being applied here.

Another problem I have against this law (past reasons I’ve already pointed out) is that it is benefiting the citizens of other countries at the detriment of Americans.  What the hell is that?!

There’s another problem with this issue.  Okay, so we’re not going to enforce these laws against children that were brought over with their parents.  So, if we deport the parents, are we going to separate them from their families then?

That and these are UNDOCUMENTED people.  So, how the hell do we know when and how they came over here?  What is to stop a 23 year old Mexican citizen from hopping the boarder and saying, “Yeah, my parents brought me over here when I was eight?”  Are we doing to do exhaustive investigations on all 800,000 claims?  I think not.  This sucker’s gonna be full of fraud for sure.

I think Democrats lack a sense of cause and effect.  ”There are poor people?  Oh, well, give them some money.  That’ll solve the problem.  Surely there won’t be unforeseen consequences for this.”  Likewise, “We feel bad for the kids that illegals bring over.  Let’s not deport them.  Surely this won’t give parents of children the incentive to come over here illegally and create a claim for their kids to remain in this country.  Surely that won’t happen!”

Finally, this is a sick thing Obama and the Democrats are doing to secure votes.  This is like welfare/benefits.  ”If you want your benefits to stay, you had best keep electing us in.  If you want your young to stay in this country, you had best keep electing us.”  It’s a path of enslavement.  This is why it’s a two year time limit.  That way, he can tell Hispanics that, if they want this preferential treatment to continue, they had best re-elect him.

God, why can’t we impeach this man?  He has gone outside the Constitution more times than any President since FDR.

Long Live the Constitution!

State of the Union Speech

Posted by Troy on 24th January 2012 in Current Events, Political

Where do I begin?

For starters, his concepts about American manufacturing, American energy, and American Values.

Unless he wants to do away with the minimum wage, we are not going to have a lot of manufacturing jobs.  I suppose he could set out some prohibitive tariffs, but I doubt he has the guts, and it’s debatable as to the wisdom of that move.  He just shut down the Keystone pipeline and hasn’t allowed American companies to drill for oil, so he really loses a lot of credibility on this issue.  I suppose that he could say that he is very pro-American GREEN energy, which is not cost effective right now.  The fact of the matter is, if you agree that there’s a finite amount of oil in the world and we should be researching new energy to be ahead of the curve, then you should be for pumping as much crude as we can and use the profits to fund these projects so that we will use up the supply of a soon to be obsolete energy source.  As to American values, Obama’s perspective of American values runs counter to most of American.  Hell, his wife once commented that America was a “downright mean country.”  She also said that “for the first time in her adult life, she was proud of [her] country.”  Inferring Barrack’s beliefs should be fairly easy…he did marry her after all.

The President discussed everyone paying their fair share.  Here’s a quick question, what is a fair share?  How much of your own money should you be allowed to keep?  How fair is it for someone to take money from you and give it directly to another person for their own PERSONAL welfare?  The government is supposed to provide for the common welfare.  Do you know how taxes were supposed to be levied?  The Constitution said that the government could only take taxes directly from the states based on their share of the nation’s population.  It also only allowed for money to be in gold and silver.  Here’s a question, if the federal government only used gold and silver, was only responsible for those activities mandated by the Constitution, and could only tax based on the original schematics, would we be in this mess?  That’s Ron Paul’s point entirely.

I was sickened by Obama’s positive spin on some very dangerous acts.  He wants to do away with the filibuster.  Why?  Because it stops the Leftist agenda.  The fact of the matter is that his ideas are terrible, and that is why he needs a super-majority to win.  Of course, he wants the Dream Act passed immediately so that he can get the Latino vote.  Finally, there’s the takeover of the internet–all to control the information we see.  2084 isn’t too far away.

In another matter, what is with all the executive orders?  How can he wave a pen and make the military run on green energy?  How is he funding it without Congressional approval?  For that matter, when the hell is the Congress going to pass a budget?  Am I the only one that’s sick and tired of not having a budget?

Dear Lord, how many countries are we at war with or about to be at war with?  A thought occurred to me today…if the Founding Fathers could see how we were today, how would they feel about the constant state of war we find ourselves in?  I seriously doubt they would approve of us going to war without Congressional approval.  The fact of the matter is, none of these conflicts are popular enough with the American people where Congressmen would dare vote for a war.  This is why we’ve decided not to have the Constitution get in the way.  And here again, this is Ron Paul’s point.  I just wish he was better at projecting it.  Sadly, I think we are probably lock into some sort of conflict in Iran.  At least we are trying to use sanctions instead of military might (although they are typically ineffective).  As Sun Tzu said, it is best to deal with your enemies first by influence and the last resort is to invade them.

The last point I want to make is this: What is the deal with the lighting?  What, were they going for the “rays of light through a cloud”/God smiling upon Obama?  The only thing missing was a choir singing.  Bah!

Long Live the Constitution!

Backdoor Dream Act

Posted by Troy on 20th August 2011 in Current Events, Political

Obama has announced that he is not going to work on deporting illegals if they are young and in school et cetera.  Deportation costs $24,000 per deportee.  First, I could do it cheaper I think.  We talk about government waste?  It can’t cost that much.  $1,000, put them on a plane handcuffed to an agent, fly them back to their home country, and drop them off at the airport.  We’re done.  I know that’s oversimplification, but it cannot cost $24,000.

This is obviously a play to get the Latino vote which has fled Obama.  While he still has the black vote, the Latino vote is not nearly as loyal to the Democrats (and specifically Obama) as blacks.  The sortsightedness in the plan comes in with the fact that he is exempting illegals from the law.  Illegals cannot vote (we’re assuming voter fraud does not exist).  Those Latinos which would be for amnesty and this plan are the ones that are going to be loyal to the Democratic party anyway.  All he is going to do is lose Latinos which came here legally and expect others to do the same and non-Latinos which will look at this as an abuse of power.

Finally, I want to discuss the Constitutionality of this decision.  As unsavory as it is, there is some precedence of a President ignoring the enforcement of the law.  This is basically a temporary pardon.  One of the checks and balances the President has is not to enforce a law if it is an unjust law.  It’s important to note that it is probably more likely that it is abused rather than used as a check and balance – much like when President Andrew Jackson ignored the Supreme Court when it came to the Cherokee Indians.  I believe Obama (and Democrats in general) have a great degree of contempt for the Constitution (excluding a few select Amendments,  but they are very selective about those select Amendments as well), but he is not going against the Constitution this time.  This is part of the checks and balances system, and it is up to us to judge him and see if he has abused his power and reward or punish him as such in November 2012.

Long Live the Constitution.
