    You need to look at the bigger picture. Opening our markets to them will create more production here. So instead of sitting at home, some people who are looking for work or can't find any at all and have left the labor pool will be getting good job skills in the market. They won't be on welfare, they will be making their own money and it will be coming from Mexico. They can spend that money here instead of taxpayer money. And yes, some of the resources will go down there, it's only fair.. but then what happens is Mexico will get access to our markets and want to be more productive themselves so they can better afford the goods and services that are now available. The benefits from the mutual exchange that Trump will enable will be immense in the long run and will be great for both countries. The wall is going to cost $64/person and that is a one time cost. In 2016 Obamacare cost over $300/person, that is an annual cost, and I have seen articles that show that Obamacare never would have passed without illegal voters, because they put enough people who were elected in congress to pass it over the top. But since you don't believe illegal voters exist, it definitely would not have passed without those who were born here by parents who were illegal at the time. So $64 one time cost vs. $300/year just for ONE government program they helped pass. The math seems pretty clear.

    No, the goal is we will turn things around and make government as a whole smaller, at best, but at worst we will do it to ourselves at a later date. That is what the math says. Putting up a wall only decreases your freedom if you are trying to cross into Mexico or hire them for cheap labor here, but much of the cheap labor is here now so even that is pretty limited. The problem is the cheap labor doesn't cover all of the costs of the immigration because government is so big and offers so much that a lot is tagged on with it. So we decided to stop doing that at least until we have a smaller government. Not building a wall or fighting illegal immigration will lead to more socialist policies like single payer healthcare and the rest of the socialist platform, but hey, at least you are free to go to Mexico (although you might want to talk to them about immigration, they have very strict immigration laws unlike us). For those of us who are for open borders in a libertarian society, immigration and its effects have to become very extreme to think that closing off immigration is a good idea - but it is in this case. I was somewhat willing to deal with the costs because a lot of their problems down there are our fault, but then when I realized we were creating a snowball effect by bringing more socialist people here and keeping them here by baiting them with big government programs and then who are going to bring our country even further to the left, create more big government services, and use them... well that's when I became at least ok (luke warm) with that part of Trump's platform.. and understand where LE was coming from all those years. It does appear to be leading us toward a complete socialist leftist disaster to me.

    Bridenstein was out in any case. He went up there and did his best, and got attack ads for his trouble. He went to Washington an ex-Navy pilot and still convinced American policy in the Middle East still made sense, and figuring the Powers that Be would surely have no problem with an ex-sailor, and a few good votes got him attacked. He got reelected anyway--handily--but you could tell by the 2016 state convention that he was finally getting a whiff of the odor all about him. He'd already had enough of Congress. It'll be interesting to see if being a bureaucrat suits him better. At least it's not a committee. The chain of command might suit him better. Yes, I heartily endorse Nathan! Anyone looking to make a Liberty contribution for the 2018 midterms could do no better than invest in Dahm for Congress!

    Stop acting retarded, I already outlined how it works very clearly, just because it doesn't fit into all the little scenarios you are laying out doesn't mean when Trump says, "Mexico is going to pay for it" he is wrong, because he is actually technically correct if you look at the US and Mexico as collective entities.

    No, I just said there will be an influx in cash from Mexico to the US. There will be additional tax revenue due to increased demand for our products there, but that isn't the point and that isn't where it is coming from. It is a sorta collectivist way to view it, but essentially we will have an extra $20 billion here in the US that will come from Mexico that we wouldn't have had otherwise. We will spend $20 billion on the wall. The thing is, pretty much all Trump supporters would be happy with the wall no matter how it is paid, but the fact that he is going to hit up Mexico for a better trade agreement that would equate to our country getting the $$ back in some form for protecting our border was icing on the cake. It's pretty funny how it has taken more than two years and anti-Trump people still can't wrap their head around it.

    Trump has the upper hand in the negotiations and can negotiate the tariffs lower for us so that the money saved and the additional revenue generated from demand can be put toward the wall. It won't be paid for directly, but the point is there will be an influx of money from Mexico that will compensate for the cost of the wall. Alternatively, Trump will accept cash, check or credit card payments for better trading terms.

    Well there will be a wall eventually, and Mexico will pay for it (through negotiated trade agreements), this is just temporary.

    Well things were a lot better when it was legal medicinally than it was when it was totally illegal. I dunno if you've ever waited around for your drug dealer to call you back, then found out 3 hours later they are dry and aren't going to have any for another week and your other dealers are dry all of a sudden when two weeks ago everything was flush. Then there is the issue with cops. They don't care if they smell weed anymore, they don't treat it like crack cocaine. When medicinal got popular they stopped treating it like you had a firearm pointed at them, and now I'm pretty sure they really just don't care at all. But ya, there are some major issues, or growing pains. But overall it will be better than when having a gram of weed was worth the cops breaking down your front door and destroying all of the belongings in your house.
