Why Illegal Immigration Is Funny.

On the immigration issue, everyone on the left should put this in perspective.

The common compliant is that illegals are taking our jobs. But WHOSE jobs? The vast majority of all illegals who come through the Mexican border live in the south. At the same time that this has happened significantly over the last 12 years much of our domestic manufacturing has gone overseas to find cheap labor. But within the United States itself there’s been another shift by manufacturers who are moving south to find cheap red neck labor. While Detroit and Flint, Michigan has been left in ruins by General Motors’ abandonment of Michigan, Hyundai has opened a factory in Montgomery, while Mercedes-Benz has opened another factory in Vance, Alabama. Is anyone complaining about the red necks who are taking our jobs?

With more and more illegals coming through our borders, most of the jobs they are taking are the jobs of white men who live in the south who vote overwhelmingly Republican. Latinos, on the other hand, vote 70% of the time with Democrats (yes, it‘s true!). This means that illegals are making life harder for red neck Republicans, and since the GOP is running all three branches of our government (please, kill me now!) then that makes them that much more likely to direct their anger at the GOP for making them compete with José.

Meanwhile, the GOP is falling apart. The smart nazis who want cheap labor for their business cronies are having to fight with the moron nazis who are beholden to their racist constituents. This entire issue is a blessing for the left, and nobody seems to realize it. Those of us on the left should be doing one thing and one thing only…that is stay as silent as possible, while giggling our asses off. That way later we can be free to blame the GOP on both sides of the issue.

If anything, we should be pushing for even more illegals to come into the border. Open the floodgate, and…here’s the kicker…give them all the right to vote before November.

Interesting point.

But a guest worker program will not stop with replacing jobs in the South or with "red neck" jobs.

Once the flood gates are open and corporations get a taste of cheap, insecure labor - they'll be no stoping them.

The problem is this: There is something called the Iron Law of Wages.

The Iron Law of Wages states that if workers markets are saturated to the point were too many workers willing to work for sustanence wages and wages are so low that workers are too insecure to protest, the workers will not protest.

It happens in third world countries, it can happen here too.

In fact the goal of conservative governments is to facilitate the Iron Law of Wages, among other things.

Russell Kirk, the father of the modern conservative movenment, teaches that an elite ruling class of wealthy families or organizations is preferable to Rebublican Democracy.

An elite ruling class provides moral and social order.

Why do you think there was such a push for trickle-down economic durring the Reagan Era?

It is an open attempt to put more money in the hands of the wealthy and less in the hands of the working classes - it worked.

Open borders? Well that's just the second act.

Ever read Edmond Burke? He wrote some scarry stuff, scarry for Demcoracy anyway.

Yes, I'm familiar with David Ricardo and his Iron Law of Wages, he was pretty much seen as the first desiple of Adam Smith. He was correct, at least on this point, that an increase of labor (supply) lowers the demand for them, thus hurting wages. As I dimly recall, Ricardo argued that wages can only raise when there is shortage of labor. Of course, this predated the minimum wage.

Yes, I have read Edmund Burke's (if I'm remembering the title correctly) Recollections on the Revolution in France. Good ole Tom Paine wrote a retort to it which is far better written (politics aside, although, history proved him correct politically as well)called The Rights of Man.

I have been reading a lot of the classic stuff for the last two years...since I've been listening to Thom Hartmann. :) If you haven't already done so, I would suggust checking out Rousseau's The Social Contract. John Stewart Mill wrote some good stuff too like On Liberty, although in my opinion Rousseau was far better, more fascinating, and far more left wing.
