You believe that Shit?
Pappy, SC can believe whatever he chooses to believe. Including disbelieving economist who point out the tax reform package temporary tax relief for the working & middle class, is a exorbitant price to pay for the permanent tax relief of the top 1% that already own 40% of all our nation’s wealth. A deal that guarantees a big increase in the percentage of their wealth.
None of this matters to Republican loyalist doing their best to keep ‘illegal immigration’ on the front page. Trump ending DACA protection that made legal immigrants illegal, ensured the Republican Party they would be able to keep this pot of divisive rhetoric boiling. Making people illegal that have for 13 years kept their U.S. legal status current by complying with USCIS requirements every year, doesn’t bother the Republican leadership at all.
The ultra Right want the public to believe those people that were raised American, complied with our immigration rules year after year and are now stake holders in our country are criminals. The Trump Administration & ultra Right has made them criminals to advance their fake political agenda of ‘making America great again’.
If we want to keep America’s status as the greatest country on earth, we can begin by giving our youth a debt free, meaningful education that will enable them to compete with China, India, Switzerland, Norway, Germany, etc. We do this and we don’t have to depend on draining brains from those countries for our own innovation. Our youth would have more to look forward to than fishing, smoking pot and the highest score on the trendiest video game.
If people in this country believe ‘illegal immigration’ is the problem, it’s because they haven’t been to our nation’s top University’s and seen the ratio of American youth to foreign.
While the Republican Party is doing the bidding of this country’s corporate elite, blaming illegal immigrants picking strawberries for $3 an hour for all of our nation’s problems, they don’t want to look into the halls of our top University’s.
They would rather the public not take notice that our American youth are vastly outnumbered in STEM disciplines preparing the next generation of innovators that drive the economies of every nation on earth. No, no these are the people the corporate elite must have to expand corporate global domination. Once these youth have attained their top notch education, they will go back to their countries of origin to be further exploited by the global corporate elite, that intend on running the government’s of those countries too.
Republican loyalist are doing a good job of increasing the wealth of their corporate sponsors, while diverting attention from our nation’s most critical problems of an apathetic & undereducated youth, drug addiction, gun violence, discarded veterans and increasing homelessness of a burgeoning underclass. Small wonder the oligarchy are handing out bonuses.
