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!

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Posted by Troy on 23rd April 2012 in Current Events

Romney needs to backtrack on his position on immigration because it is stupid.  If someone is here illegally, they are not going to self-deport and go to the back of the line.  It is unreasonable to think that his solution is going to work.  Here is my comprehensive plan:

1 – We start a immigrant worker program.  In this program, the employer will pay the employer portion of Social Security and Medicare, and the employee will have no right to either benefit.  A flat 15% will be withheld on employees.  Employers will also be required to use e-verify.

2 – A person that is already over here can stay assuming they a) come forward and register with full bio-metrics, b) they have no criminal charges, and c) they can find 5 US citizens to sponsor them and link their fortunes to them.  Should the sponsored person be arrested for a felony, the sponsor will owe a small fine ($1,000).  If they can’t find 5 people to speak up for them, we don’t need them here.  Anyone failing to register after one year will lose this protection and will be deported if they are caught.  They can also never become permanent residents or citizens.

3 – Anyone qualifying under number 2 will only attain permanent residency.  They can never become a citizen.  They didn’t respect the law by coming over the correct way.  They will not get the privileges that come with citizenship.  If they want to become a citizen, then they will have to self-deport and come back the correct way.

4 – It costs, on average, $15,000 for a person to immigrate legally.  Anyone qualifying under number 2 will have a fine levied against them of $50,000, to be collected via taxes.  This tax will be limited to 10% of their AGI per year.  Their earnings will have this bonus withholding on their W-2, and they will only be allowed to have incomes that are reported to the IRS either by W-2 or 1099.  Any employer found paying such employee “under the table” will become liable for the outstanding balance on their fine.

I believe that this is a comprehensive immigration reform.  It’s not a path to citizenship.  It’s a path of redemption, sacrifice, and legitimacy.

Long Live the Constitution!

Georgia to use Criminals to Replace Illegal Aliens in the Fields

Posted by Troy on 15th June 2011 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

The new law in Georgia has caused some problems.  Now, all employers have to check an employee’s work status.  As a result, a lot of illegals are fleeing in droves.  Governor Deal has suggested that we use ex-convicts to replace these laborers.  I can do one better.  Why don’t we bring back the chain gang?  Oh, I know that they’ve decided that’s cruel and unusual, so why don’t we do this: Make if voluntary.  If they participate, ever year they work removes an additional year off their sentence.  Effectively, they could cut their jail time in half.  Also, we will pay them minimum wage to be paid to a escrow account to be paid to them upon their release.  If they try to escape or attack anyone, they get all their jail time back again (plus some) and lose all their wages as punishment and are not allowed to participate in the program anymore.

Long Live the Constitution!

War in Arizona

Posted by Troy on 19th May 2011 in Current Events, Political

Civil unrest has always been a tool of revolutionaries.  Interestingly enough, their plan to make us weak and helpless has mainly affected their solider pool.  However, let’s host a hypothetical (using Arizona as an example as this is the most likely location).

The revolutionary leaders in Arizona give the green light and tell their zombies to start rioting.  They start looting and setting fires and overturning cars and raping and beating people, et cetera.

Arizona’s citizens, being Arizonans, respond appropriately by using guns to defend themselves, their families, and their property.

Obama sends in the military to intervene (technically against the Constitution, but he doesn’t really care about that kind of thing).

Question:  Who do you think Obama tells the military to engage?  The racist Arizonans?  Or the protesters who where exercising their right to protest?

State of the Union Address

Posted by Troy on 25th January 2011 in Political

Needless to say, the State of the Union address has deteriorated into mere political hot air.  I personally blame live TV for this.  However, it is still worth discussing.

I find it very interesting that Obama speaks of solving the debt in nearly the same breath he talks about increasing “investments.”  I should imagine that the term “investment” has focus group tested as being more acceptable than “stimulus.” 

First, let’s discuss the comparison to China.  For instance, the super-trains.  In America, we do not invest in things that are economically unviable.  If there was enough demand for these new trains, we would surely build them.  The reason that they are built in China is because the Chinese government can order something built, and it doesn’t matter if there’s not enough demand for it.  It doesn’t have to turn a profit.  The fact of the matter is that any company foolish enough to invest in these new bullet trains would quickly go bankrupt.  Americans love cars.  Plain and simple.  Our economy works differently than the Chinese.  Eventually, economic reality is going to catch up to the Chinese.  It would catch up to us much faster as we actually live (at least to a certain degree) in economic reality.

Second, let’s discuss the deficit.  He talks a great deal about lowering the deficit.  However, he doesn’t discuss the only thing that will save the deficit: getting rid of entitlements.  Govenment programs all start out with the best intentions.  Welfare was intended to help war widows.  What happens is called mission creep, where the program just continues to grow.  As these programs grow, you have the unintended consequence of people choosing to partake of these entitlements rather than work.  In the case of Social Security, people will merely spend their excess money rather than put it into their retirement savings.  Each entitlement is a sinkhole. 

Finally, let us end with a discussion on illegal immigration.  Every attempt of “immigration reform” which involves giving a “path to citizenship” for any group here illegally only gives yet another incentive for illegals to come here, particularly with their children.  From where do you think the money to pay for college for students under the DREAM act will come?  I have a feeling that it will be from scholarships which could have gone to American citizens or our tax dollars.  I will say, students who are here on a student visa who excel in their field of study should be given a path to citizenship as a way of keeping top prospects on our side.
