I thought to myself the other day, “What’s the big deal with open borders anyway? I mean, the European Union has open borders and they don’t seem to have any issues.” Well, beyond the mass migration that occurred over the past few years with hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees seeking access to various countries and the absolute crises that resulted, internal movement didn’t have a problem.
The United States has a severe migration crises over its southern border. The current administration is simply, and I mean literally, busing thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants from the border to cities throughout the United States with the “stern warning” that they need to appear for their immigration hearing to determine if they can stay. What a fucking joke.
Borders are necessary as they determine how far one political entity can assert its power across land, sea and air. Does the Mexican government want the bozos in Washington D.C. passing legislation critical to Mexico? Of course not. No sane intelligent person could argue otherwise. Boundaries also establish “zones” were certain laws are to be applied and certain taxes levied against its inhabitants. Does Canada want its citizens paying taxes to the United States? Of course not. Borders also protect natural resources. Should Americans be allowed to waltz into any South American country and mine out its gold, silver, copper etc.?? Of course not.
It is argued that every country has the right to set its own rules for who may enter and leave, work, visit, do business, and reside within their borders. Well, except for the United States who is expected by other countries and by ultra socialist liberals to let anyone in at any time for any reason.
But, this blog post is not really about borders. It’s about boundaries. Or, perhaps rules would be a better term. There are rules which govern voting. Perhaps one of the most essential rules is that you need to be a citizen of a particular area, have a residentially related financial, legal, moral, educational interest in the voting zone. Why would I, who now reside in conservative Arizona, be allowed to vote in liberal NYC in an effort to change some socialist law? I shouldn’t. I have no interest there and I have no right to insert my political, moral, ethical, what-ever, feelings upon those citizens.
There is at least one member of the NY City Council who is trying to pass legislation to allow voting privileges to “non-citizens”. He estimates 800,000 new voters would be created for local issues. He argues, “Every human is a citizen of some country”. STOP. STOP. STOP. I agree, but what does that have to do with being allowed to vote in a country where you are NOT a citizen??
Essentially, foreigners will be allowed to dilute the vote of real NYC voters. Now, citizens of Red China, Russia, North Korea, Venezuela, etc can chose who is the Mayor of NY, who sits on the City Council, who is the district attorney, what is taught in schools. OH MY GOD !!!! Whose interests will these foreigners have? Hmmm, I wonder.
The liberals are trying very hard to dismantle our country. Their socialist agenda and desire to make us all one global country go forward every day. What is so shocking is that not one capitalist country has ever failed while socialist country after socialist country have failed economically, ethically, and politically.
I just don’t get it.
