    Afghan refugee wins New Hampshire statehouse primary

    A 27-year-old Afghan refugee has ousted a four-term incumbent in the Democratic primary for a seat in the New Hampshire legislature.The Concord Monitor reports that Safiya Wazir beat District 17 State Rep. Dick Patten, who argued her refugee background would hurt her campaign. But Wazir pulled out Tuesday's primary victory by highlighting her years of community activism and dedication to education and family issues.

    Wazir says she would focus on Medicaid expansion and enacting paid family leave in New Hampshire.

    But I was told migrants/refugees/immigrants/demographic invaders don't vote for more government.

    Meh, we, meaning AmeriKunts, deserve what's going to happen to us.

    Can't get ten thousand people to move to NH to support limited government and liberty, but can get tens of thousands to show up and support big government handouts, welfare, demographic warfare and "community activism".

    Pretty sure you were told that they do it at the same rate as US-born citizens (subjects). Hell, we can't even get people in RPF to agree that more government is bad.

    I know, right?

    Far from opposing more government, we have many denizens of RPF actually vociferously cheering it on, and even begging for more still. A sad state of affairs to be sure.

    I don't recall that being the case.

    I recall surveys and polling data that indicate that first generation migrants vote for more government at rates twice that of native citizens.

    Right, which is why legal and illegal migration needs a halt, across the board, for at least ten years, so we can sort this mess out.

    Right. We need to voter harder to keep other people from voting harder because voting harder stops harder voting and vote for big government projects that take away our liberty (constitution free zone around the U.S. already...border wall) because....ummmm....I'm confused.

    I was expecting u to post the of some black or brown people holding matchetes cos u probably think that is all they do.

    But here u are building a tall and gorgeous strawman. It looks so beautiful that I cannot believe u decided to set it.on fire. Nobody said that immigrants dont vote for more govt. You just made that shyte up. I think the argument is that they vote for more govt at about the same rates as natives.

    And the people continued to call for the ultimate government I.D. collar, to solve a government created problem,
    and government was happy to answer the call.

    Once Socialism is adopted, it's only a matter of time until the mass migrations begin in search for greater freedom. No one is building a do-it-yourself boat to sail to one of the few Socialist countries that remain. People are however, always trying to escape, with Venezuela being the latest example. Ron Paul discusses on The Liberty Report.

    But only immigrants want bigger government. Didn't the Republicans pass a record spending budget plan? Great job supporting smaller government there! But since it is only citizens who are allowed to vote, maybe we need to restrict them. Only allow people with government approved position to cast ballots. That will keep the riff-raff out. But what party should be the government approved one? It may turn out to not be the one you want. Then what ?

    Ron Paul said a border wall would be used to keep us in. Ron Paul said bring the troops home and put them on the border. Ron Paul believes that government is here to protect the rights of the individual. Property rights being one of these rights. Many ranchers on the border's property are inundated with illegal trespassers. Either allow these ranchers to shoot trespassers on sight, thus reducing the willingness of trespassers to do so, or use the government to protect their property. I'm fine either way.

    Yes, I get it. But don't you see that EVERYONE wants to shrink parts of the government and grow other parts. We are supposed to be the ones that want to shrink ALL parts.

    Proponents of the welfare state want us to reduce our military involvement and give the money to the poor.
    Proponents of the warfare state want us to end the social programs and use the money for "defense".

    The problem with that mentality is that the government keeps growing! The cuts never happen - we just build the extra parts!

    Meanwhile, if we end the social programs and the drug war, the immigration problem solves itself. You don't solve a government created problem with more government.

    Collar the government or the government (amplified proud, scared, flawed, man) WILL CONTINUE to collar the individual.

    Liberty is supposed to point to the flawed man, FIRST.

    But, it would actually be less government. I did the math one time and with the current N.G. personnel you could staff 2 troops per mile along the southern border 24/7 in one week increments. Now if we brought troops home from foreign bases we could easily triple that number. Troop bases over seas would be shut down ending the logistical support for those operations. Ta-Da. Less government.

    A more modern Ron Paul POV:

    How to Solve the Illegal Immigration Problem
    By Ron Paul


    Ron Paul Institute

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent speech on immigration really missed the point. I understand Trump’s frustration over the US government’s inability to control the US borders and keep out those who would come to this country illegally. Trump was right that the media ignore legitimate questions we have on our immigration policy and he is right that special interests have a great interest in maintaining the status quo.

    However, when it comes to really solving the immigration problem he gets it all wrong. And instead of making us more free and prosperous, his solutions will accelerate our downward slide toward authoritarianism.

    First, let’s consider his idea of building a big wall between the US and Mexico. It is said that all one needs to get over an eight-foot fence is a nine-foot ladder. Or perhaps a shovel. So walls are never very good at keeping people out. But they are very good at keeping people in. Just ask the East Germans. The communist government claimed in 1961 that it had to build a wall around the portion of Berlin it controlled to keep the population safe from the evil capitalist wreckers and saboteurs. It didn’t take long for the world to realize that the real threat to the East German leaders was that the people trapped in East Berlin would try to get out. We have all seen the horrific videos of East German civilians risking – and losing – their lives to escape that prison of razor wire and cinder block.

    Is this really what we want for our own future?

    What a wild conspiracy theory, some may claim. The wall would never be meant to keep us from leaving. Well, ask the IRS. Under a tax enforcement provision passed in 2015, the US government claimed the right to cancel any American citizen’s passport if Washington claims it is owed money.

    Trump also made E-Verify the center of his immigration speech. He said, “We will ensure that E-Verify is used to the fullest extent possible under existing law, and we will work with Congress to strengthen and expand its use across the country.”

    While preventing those here illegally from being able to gain employment may appeal to many who would like to protect American jobs, E-Verify is the worst possible solution. It is a police state non-solution, as it would require the rest of us legal American citizens to carry a biometric national ID card connected to a government database to prove that the government allows us to work. A false positive would result in financial disaster for millions of American families, as one would be forced to fight a faceless government bureaucracy to correct the mistake. Want to put TSA in charge of deciding if you are eligible to work?

    The battle against illegal immigration is a ploy to gain more control over our lives. We are supposed to be terrified of the hoards of Mexicans streaming into our country and thus grant the government new authority over the rest of us. But in fact, a Pew study found that between 2009 and 2014 there was a net loss of 140,000 Mexican immigrants from the United States. Yes, this is a government “solution” in search of a real problem.


    How to tackle the real immigration problem? Eliminate incentives for those who would come here to live off the rest of us, and make it easier and more rational for those who wish to come here legally to contribute to our economy. No walls, no government databases, no biometric national ID cards. But not a penny in welfare for immigrants. It’s really that simple.
    There is no spoon.
