    No, it's really not. The purpose is to have the population represented in Congress.

    Yes. We do have the Right to restrict other peoples movements to areas that they do not belong. Until you see that your "idea" will always be considered preposterous.

    And of COURSE you don't want to go into the practicality of it or the hypotheticals...because then your idea would be exposed for what it is. Nonsense. Looney Toons type nonsense.

    property as in living space is hardly the same as restricting someone from entering ANY part of a 3.8 MILLION square mile territory

    granted, there is too much private property in america. Rich assholes think they can own land or housing they have no need for, like mccain not knowing how many houses he had (or was that romney?) Leave it to you though to go from one extreme of building walls to keep out people who pose no threat (but they look not white so all good!), to the extreme of pillaging the bedrooms of old ladies.

    and the population should be counted among the legal voting populace, not illegals or those who cannot vote. That dilutes out he value of the votes for legal voting citizens.

    No, it doesn't. In fact, it strengthens your vote.

    Well I actually don't believe this case to be activist, citizens united was an activist decision, this one not so much, and a case like this is essential given an activist decision in the 70s (Reynolds) there is legitimate contention here, and it's a valid issue to sort out, I actually think the justices will uphold the status quo though, the census doesn't record the information nessecary to make the eligible voting registration system work

    And its all owned. Either privately or by the governments of those 3.8 million square mile territory. Or are you an anarchist also and don't believe governments?

    So, you want to also take away property of those that you think own too much of it. So much for private property rights.

    And btw, I don't want the wall built. I want our immigration laws enforced for many reason. Not one single one of them has to do with the color of the illegal immigrants skin either. I dislike white illegal aliens just as much as brown illegal aliens, yellow illegal aliens, purple illegal aliens etc etc etc etc etc ad nauseum etc.

    Apparently you don't know what a strawman is. And yes, I know it doesn't deter you from such an idiotic position. I have just as much chance of doing that as I do wiping out ISIS all by myself.

    Why? When that one fits your agenda quite well? Don't fix what ain't broke.

    As for the Kochs, the nearly one billion is not only coming from their pockets, but also from Freedom Partners, an organization they founded.

    Freedom Partners is structured as a chamber of commerce and is composed of around 200 members, each paying a minimum US$100,000 in annual dues. In 2012, the organization raised $256 million.[4]

    Freedom Partners - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The organization is funded by the Koch brothers.[5] The Koch brothers website merely mention Freedom Partners operates independently of Koch Industries".[6] awards grants to advocacy organizations with the goal of raising public awareness about "important societal and economic issues".[3]
    So if you want to play child-like semantics, be my guest. But you cannot deny that the Koch brothers are heavily behind funding the next election.
    Putin has certainly grabbed Trump by the pussy. Payback is a bitch.
