It's telling that you have to misrepresent in order to make an argument. If you had a stronger position, you wouldn't have to.
If you don't deport illegal, and set up 'sanctuary' cities where they won't fear to be deported, then first you are obviously in favor of illegal immigration
It didn’t fail, it saved America in the 80s.It was known as a great recovery. You should know your history.
Bullshit: I didn't misrepresent anything. This is exactly how it is: donkeys are in favor in illegal immigration and against immigration enforcement, both on the border itself and inside the country. The first is evident from their opposition to "the wall", the second - from their insistance on sanctuary policies.
Like Bob said--if you want to stop illegals, take away their jobs. Which means throwing a few CEOs in jail that are hiring them. It's very simple and costs almost nothing.

It's very simple and costs almost nothing.I agree.I don't blame illegals as much as I blame their employers. The employers of illegals are the ultimate source of the problem.We need mandatory prison time for the employers of illegals.
Newsflash--trickle down has been tried already. And it failed.
Again, so we're clear. You advocate that ones' career opportunities are substantially based on the birth lottery. That is not unusual for Republicans.I advocate for a merit based system where the best and brightest have the opportunity to get ahead even if they are born into a poor family.
There is no birth lottery.
There is no birth lottery. That's an excuse socialist use for trying to redistribute other people's wealth, it's what the Soviet Union used as an excuse to implement Communism and it lead to 100,000,000+ dead people in the 20th century. You're literally advocating for death, I advocate for life.
Try that again HappyGilmore, without the personal attack.
So, just because someone pays "nothing" in taxes, they have no voice in how our progressive tax system is implemented, and where the money to fund the government comes from?
So an accusation that you are misinformed or have some other overriding belief/agenda is jail worthy?Or was it the part where Happy asked you to back up your claims with sources? :)
The asking for facts part was fine, the "anyone who thinks this is very naïve or purposely disingenuous, I'll let others judge which you are" is a personal attack.
Why should they? Why should someone who contributes nothing to the tax system have a say in how the money is spent?
They don't let 10 year olds vote on laws or vote for politicians.
Because of the Constitution? Ever heard of it?
Anyone eligible to vote has a voice on anything up for debate.Or shall we apply your logic out further to abortion and birth control?She, the "zero tax payer" (who I guarantee is paying taxes of some form) absolutely gets a say. It influences all the people, community, and culture around her. (edit: I missed the big one, "It's the economy stupid". (disclaimer, that's an actual quote, not a slight at Moderator in Chief Goran))

... to the point that the jailed comments are now more interesting to read. Not good for the site.
And everybody else can give their assessment regarding the value of her opinion.
Sure, I've always agreed that women have a right to kill their babies.
But I'm talking on a purely water cooler level. Does it seem fair that people who contribute nothing to the system get to vote on how money is spent? Seems pretty unfair.
Rules are pretty simple to follow IMO.
Still waiting for the sources on Russia.
ou were lying when you said "Goran proposed eliminating college loans." This isn't an opinion, it's a fact, you lied.
Goran_K saysou were lying when you said "Goran proposed eliminating college loans." This isn't an opinion, it's a fact, you lied. Just quoting this to show Goran's complete bias.
Go open a special thread about moderation and another one about Goran's moral flaws. Stop shitting in this thread.

How can anyone contribute nothing? That's absurd. They pay fica, they buy things from business that pay taxes, they pay fees, they pay sales taxes, they pay property taxes, gasoline taxes, etc., etc..
