More gaslighting....You mad bro?
There's no use in discussion with this guy. He can't be taken seriously. I suspect something is not quite right in the head. I don't say that to poke fun, but you can't rationalize with crazy.
Rational would be the cognitive ability to understand you can't have an "imaginary border" and ever expanding social programs at the same time. For most it would not be necessary to detail the consequences. Lamentations over impoverished children in the US would suggest already overburdened and/or underserved demographic in need of government funded social programs through taxation. An open border allowing a never ending influx of the impoverished would inevitably collapse under the weight of balancing the ability to provide social programs and the necessity to fund those programs through taxation.
Alas, in spite of these realities the irrational and simple minded would prattle on about fear mongering and conservatives hate diversity. Indoctrinated in stupidity, or a fucking nut.
Clearly, you were the one who was mad and butthurt after my initial comment, which is when you tagged me and replied in the first place... sooooo..
"you can't rationalize with.. blah, blah, blah...." Don't pretend to be the voice of reason in the room with your antiquated logic. You don't have an objective bone in your body as far as I can tell.
You continue to operate on logical fallacies. A.. borders are imaginary because anyone who really wants to cross them can easily do so. They're stopping nothing. Not even if you built a wall to the moon. It's an imagined construct that never worked and never will in terms of the way you expect borders to work. The facts don't support your claims that immigrants would overwhelm a safety net that is already strained. Now, for the facts. A. The safety net isn't strained, it's entirely insufficient and has been for some time. B. illegal immigrants are not entitled to the benefits in the first place. The congressional budget office found that 75% illegal immigrants regularly pay taxes at an average of $7 billion per year. They pay in far more than they take and are not eligible for the benefits they're paying into. They spend money into the economy. So, when you're babbling on about "realities" and your "superior" understanding of the world, please be aware that I know you're completely full of shit.
