Walls, maintenance, cost offsets and investment

Reuters estimates that The Wall for which Trump voters voted may cost as much as $21.6B, and take 3.5 years to build. The Federalist estimates that illegal immigration costs the nation $135B per year. (It’s probably safe to assume the publications have offsetting bias, so we’ll just go with their numbers.)

Using these figures, the wall costs 15% one year’s cost of illegal immigration, and has a payback period of 57 days following completion, with the assumption that an in-progress wall does not drive down illegal immigration, probably a false assumption. This also assumes, probably also incorrectly, that The Wall […]

Immigration and the Apportionment Problem

The process of “apportionment” is used to determine House Representation and Electoral College votes by counting identified people within a region in order to form a House District. It is apportionment of House Seats and Electoral College votes that drives the Left on both illegal and muslim immigration. And it is apportionment which must be changed to settle the immigration debates. This will require amending the Constitution, which the GOP finds itself in a better position to do than we have in nearly a century.

Immigrants predominantly come from “big government” countries and so vote the American “big government” party, […]

Destroying the Middle Class is a Feature not a Bug

People need to grasp that the establishment of both political sides hates the Middle Class. The rise of Islamism in the West is an existential threat to the Middle Class, as is unchecked illegal immigration to America’s Middle Class.

The est wants to rule, they want it THEIR way. The poor vote for whomever promises the most redistribution from the Middle Class (where the money is simply because of its size). The rich vote whatever level of government they want. The poor don’t care about liberty or freedom – they can’t afford it. The rich have it – in spades […]

America, Mexico and Drugs

Having grown up and lived in SoCal nearly all of my 62 years, and having made a few trips to Mexico (camping in Baja, hotelling in Acapulco, day trips to Tijuana & Mexicali), it has always bothered me that the country is so corrupt, backward, illiterate and crime-ridden. There is no excuse for it.

The Mexican illegals with whom the American Middle Class comes into contact are, for the most part, hardworking men & women. The guy standing at the end of the freeway off-ramp selling oranges or cherries or flowers is never a white guy or a black guy […]

Low-Skill Immigration and America’s Future

When push comes to shove for the decreasing numbers of low-skill jobs in which increasing numbers of low-skill workers predominantly are employed (illegal Hispanic immigrants, African Americans and, increasingly, muslims), these three groups are going to go to war with each other over those jobs as those jobs disappear with the advance of the Information Age and robotics.

If African Americans understood that it is Democrat politics driving down their wages and prosperity by increasing the supply of low-skill workers through immigration, they – logically – would begin to vote GOP. That they don’t shows how captive they are to […]
