It’s Liberty vs. Power

07 Nov

“The main issue in the world today is globalism versus national sovereignty, and it is playing out in the politics of countries on every continent. In the United States, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s critique of globalism – encapsulated in his campaign theme of “America First” – has galvanized a mass movement opposed to the …”

Nonsense from a European political insider 

21 Sep

Every national government is responsible for protecting its people from foreign aggressors, and if they do not respect their own people’s individual rights, then it is time for a revolution—political or otherwise.    The United States has no moral standing to intervene around the world.  

 

“Former Danish prime minister and former NATO secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen says only the U.S. has the material and moral greatness to stop the slide into chaos, counter autocrats like Russia’s Vladimir Putin and foster peace.”

America’s fall

The good and bad of Trump’s foreign policy policies

17 Aug

“Donald Trump’s most recent foreign policy speech, in which he explained how he would deal with the Islamic State (ISIL) and the Middle East in general, contained multitudes – everything good and everything questionable about his brand of “America First” nationalism. Here is Trumpism on full display, the common-sensical and the nonsensical intertwined. While I […]”

Tim Kaine promises bill to legalize illegal immigrants in ‘first 100 days’

26 Jul

The solution to illegal immigration is simple. If you came to America without following the rules, you can stay in the country but can never become a citizen and therefore a voter.  In other words, you become a permanent guest in America.  If you are undocumented and commit a crime, you will be deported ASAP.  You must get a sponsor who will vouch for your character and be responsible for your “welfare” ASAP.  Therefore, as a guest in America you will not be eligible for any  entitlement benefits.   You will be able to work, start a business and raise a family just like legal immigrants. Guests would  still have to pay income, sales and other taxes just like other Americans. Children born in the US of guests do not automatically become citizens.  They are eligible for citizenship when they reach a certain age–to be negotiated.

As far as Social Security and Medicare taxes and benefits are concerned, this is where it gets tricky.  My preference is to exempt permanent guests from these taxes and benefits so we can begin phasing out the welfare state.  However, this would make it very attractive for employers to hire guests instead of legal citizens.  So the solution is to eliminate these taxes for all young workers in order to have a “level playing field” for citizens and guests.  Other issues can be negotiated by the next president and Congress.  

This will put on notice to anyone around the world that if you come to America in the future, uyou will be deported if you overstay your visa or enter the country surreptitiously. 

The general principle is illegal immigrants should not be rewarded for jumping ahead of others who have waited years to enter American legally.  

PS This issue could drive more voters to Trump in November.

“A new Clinton administration would pursue a bill to legalize illegal immigrants in “the first 100 days” of her tenure, vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine told Spanish-language network Telemundo in…”
