If you see a candidate for the Senate or Congress, please ask them if they will fully fund a wall. If not, will they be willing to share America with 877 million other people, most of whom do not care about our culture?
Milton Friedman once said that if you have no border, people will continue to come until wages are equal on both sides meaning Mexicans come until wages in Juarez and Tijuana are the same as Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
For some time I have been looking at Venezuela. People argue back and forth about their politics. But am I the only one looking at their Population Bomb? In 1950 there were 5,482,000 Venezuelans. Today there are 31.57 million. That is an increase of 576%.
In 1950 America had 152.3 million people up from 123 million in 1929. We lost 3 million Americans to starvation in the 1930s, but gained 30 million which would include a lot of (Jewish?) immigrants.
If America’s population had grown by 576% since 1950 we would have 877.4 million people today.
America’s infrastructure deficit is about $4 trillion. That means if we can’t find $4 trillion to spend on American nation building, we will be a Third World country in a generation. A friend or relative who just had a baby will raise a child who might graduate from high school and might find a job but have no expectation that the roads will not destroy their cars and bridges will not collapse while they cross.
Does anyone honestly believe that adding 550 million people will make those bridges and roads safer?
Will adding 550 million people make our public schools safer and our colleges better?
Those 877 million people sharing your roads, schools and workplaces, will be residents not citizens in the sense of sharing a distinct American experience.
You cannot really argue that there is some magic number like 475 million American residents where the people will suddenly change their minds and vote for a wall. 53% of all Democrats believe illegal aliens should be allowed to vote in American elections. But, if we add 150 million people to the population while illegal aliens vote by the millions, will we be able to vote No to the invading army of illegal aliens? They come from countries that do not practice the kind of democracy we had before the invasion. They believe they have the right to kill people to silence them. And they have some large drug gangs willing to do their dirty work.
A wall is a necessity. But there are other ways to stop illegal immigration. Give federal Voter ID cards to all citizens. Put a magnetic stripe on it just like a credit card. Nobody votes twice. Election workers couldn’t vote for people who stayed home because both parties gave us abysmal choices that year. No more millions of 106 year-olds collecting Social Security. No more people collecting welfare on one ID, unemployment on a second ID and holding a job on the third ID.
The 2018 and 2020 elections might be our last chance to save America from irreparable harm wrought by liberal Democrats, Wall Street Bankers and Fake News.
