    What a sick, pathetic statement.

    When I support his children then that effort makes my family poorer. I have an interest in my family's welfare, I don't have an interest in that stranger's welfare, especially so if it means that resources that I want to dedicate towards my family are not available to them.

    You want a high sharing society but you're simultaneously creating a highly diverse society, peopled with groups who hold philosophies, practices and outlooks, which I utterly reject. I don't want to share with them because you've created too much diversity of values that I hold to be important. I will share with those to whom I've bonded or with whom I have some familiarity.

    What you're doing is making me that man's keeper. I have the responsibility of providing for him and his family and I get none of the benefits.

    go ahead and riot and rise up dude. after that happens we net tax payers will have far less tax consumers to have to deal with
    I'm sure that's what the nobles thought in France and Russia as well. That mindset didn't work out too well for them and it won't work out too well for our current nobility. Heed the words of FDR: "Reform if you would preserve."

    What benefit do I get from the National debt for funding your tax cuts for the last 3 decades?

    You think Bill Gates think about uncertainty,By the way, all those complaints about corporate
    tax rates and hanging on to their precious loopholes, subsidies and Bush tax cuts? The Center for Tax
    Justice, a nonprofit research and advocacy group, finds “the U.S. is already one of the least taxed
    countries for corporations in the developed world” — as a percentage of GDP second only to, wait for
    it, Iceland.

It is currently 308 million. If there was no immigration during that period, the US population today would be perhaps 200 million. Increasing the size of the country by 50% imposes costs on everyone. Land is scarcer, and therefore more expensive. More roads and infrastructure have to be built meaning taxes go up meaning that there is less money available for income redistribution.

    Immigration rates are not some unalterable force of nature while tax rates are something that can be changed on a whim.

    That low wage Jersey worker is suffering the consequences from liberal policy choices - job scarcity because of high immigration, high rents because of land scarcity, high taxes because of ever expanding infrastructure requirements, etc. Liberal policies have made his life worse and removed him from being a net contributor to society. The goal is to make him a net contributor to society but first we have to stop liberal attempts to make the lives of Americans worse off so that they can improve the lives of immigrants who invite themselves into America.
    Illegal immigrants do not take good paying jobs...the job scarcity is corporations out of greed sending jobs to china and creating our greatest threat in the process

    deep down, when we strip away all the altruistic BS the far left uses as a pretext to justify their socialist cravings, what we are left with is the desire to loot and kill the rich
