They don’t want to move to POC countries either.
They want YOU to live in a non-capitalist country.
They want the products of your hard labor without actually having to pay you a fair price for it.
That’s why we allow Chinese slave labor to exist.
When the Bolsheviks were preparing to seize the means of production in Russia, the Mensheviks (a subset) cautioned against the communist takeover - noting that to redistribute wealth, there had to be wealth to redistribute, and capitalism was the only means for creating wealth, so the Revolution should be delayed to allow capitalism to produce enough wealth to bother redistributing. The Bolsheviks thought that absurd, and promptly crashed-and-burned their economy as there was insufficient wealth to redistribute to any meaningful degree.
Consequence was “supply and demand” stepped in, and lacking sufficient capitalist-produced supply, demand had to be reduced to match supply - necessitating & resulting in the deaths of tens of millions.
If America is so damn bad, why do millions want to come here?...................
Right after the big rallies in Tehran, when they go hoarse chanting “Death to America”, the Swiss embassy is packed with the tired protesters trying to get a visa to go to the United States. Somehow America does well without them.
no data just a statement
Both natural rights and wealth are real goods, necessary for life proper to a rational being. Capitalism is the economic system that is compatible with rights and is the system that increases wealth. To be against these, like leftard loons are, is a sign of irrationality.
The movers & shakers can move & shakedown any country. Right Joe Biden?
Communist countries build walls to keep innocent people in, not to keep criminals out.
No it proves everyone wants free stuff and wants someone else to pay for it.
I believe the motivation is our LIFESTYLE.
I believe most foreigners are not interested in becoming AMERICANS, but just enjoying our LIFESTYLE is the real motivation. -Tom
They are coming for the free benes. Then maybe a job but they dont want to pay taxes.
I don't blame 'em -- but we don't have to let in just anyone.
America is bad ONLY in the minds of liberals who have never lived in other countries.
If that was true, how come the immigrants from India have the highest net worth compared to any other ethnic group, including native born white Americans? Certainly the Indians did not get there with welfare checks.
I have been here since 1960. Never collected a single penny in welfare, unemployment or any other kind of free money from government. By working 2 jobs totaling 65 hours/week for over a decade, I am now living the American dream.
Only because foreigners have no chance to join the existing redistribution gang who runs things. In a non-Socialist country, they still have a chance to throw in with the future tyrants.
Capitalism-its where opportunity lives!
When the last of my ancestors arrived here almost 150 years ago you either worked for your bread,members of your family gave you bread,or you starved to death.They all knew that when they got on the boat in Ireland/Britain.
Well,the early days were rough for them...damn rough...but starting with my parents (children of the Depression/WWII) things got quite good.
For example...a billionaire (my Dad's boss) came to my mother's funeral.He was a man who was on the cover of Time Magazine three times.And that was back in the early 70s when a billion dollars was a lot of money.And to think that both my parents grew up in the Irish ghetto called "Southie" (South Boston).
And today the great grandchildren of those immigrants are travelling the world,eating sirloin at will and living healthy lives well into their 80s. Well,most of us haven't quite reached 80 yet but we're all in our 70s and still as strong as horses.
The moral of the story is if you have prosperity you can't have both open borders *and* a welfare state.
Remember in November!
MAGA! Now KAGA! (Keep America Great Always!)
