Thread: Yes Rand Paul, there is an emergency at our border!

Do you even understand Trump's "wall fence" proposal? It's not eve going to go across the entire border! And much of it will be "vehicle barriers" that anybody can walk across. The "migrant horde" that everyone was freaking out about walked right up to the existing wall! What's causing mass migration from Central America is the United States destabilizing Central American countries. And guess what Trump is doing right now in Venezuela? He is destabilizing it for the oil! Good grief!

    What unconstitutional power grab are you talking about?


    In addition, do you not consider tens of thousands of poverty stricken, poorly educated, low skilled foreigners flooding across the southern border of the United States without permission and unchecked an emergency?


    Do you have any idea of the devastating social and economic impact which illegal border crossings is having upon the citizens of the United States?


    Do you allow people to enter your home without your permission?


    Do you really believe uncontrolled immigration into the United States, which allows undesirable individuals into the United States, advances the general welfare of the United States?


    JWK

    It was February of 2019 when an ongoing invasion of America’s borders swelled to tens of thousands a month, not a shot was fired to defend the borders of the United States, and America’s domestic enemies, socialists, communists and anarchists in Congress, pushed forward with their attempt to embrace the invasion in hopes of conquering a prosperous and freedom loving people.

    Notice the word you chose there: "undesirable."

    Desirability is subjective. Each individual has different desires. A central planning government can't manage the distribution of all the different things that different individuals desire in different ways. Only the free market can do that, and does very successfully everywhere that it is permitted to.

    You may consider it undesirable for someone to be on your property. Meanwhile, I may consider it desirable for them to be on mine, perhaps as an employee, or a tenant, or a purchaser of it, or any other of the countless possibilities that are as individualized as we are.

    It's not your place to impose your desires on me, or me to impose mine on you. And all our desires are most fully met (i.e. the general welfare is advanced) within the marketplace when we just let one another engage in commerce with other individuals according to our own choosing.

    ETA: Also, you hit on another fatal flaw of your own position. Immigration restriction does not promote the general welfare. It plainly works against the welfare of those within our population who benefit from the presence of the immigrants whom immigration restriction excludes from America. Even if it did advance the welfare of some specific Americans, to the detriment of others, this would not constitute advancement of the general welfare. And since it does not promote the general welfare, it falls outside the scope of the powers delegated to Congress in Article I, Section 8.

    As a punishment for something they did that violated someone else's rights, or to stop them when they're in the act of violating someone else's rights.

    But when someone is doing something that doesn't violate anyone else's person or property, I shouldn't use violence to interfere, especially when the other parties they are interacting with in some act of commerce positively want to do so as well.

    I don't support empowering the government to use force against people for victimless crimes, which truly are not crimes at all.

    Violating immigration laws would fall under the phrase I just used of "victimless crimes."

    It's only a crime in the sense of a violation of a law that human beings made up. It's not a genuine crime in the sense of something that harms someone else, violating natural law.

    Seriously dude, quit being a dunce about this. It's one thing to say "Well I don't agree with Rand" but it's quite another to just blindly pretend there is no legitimate constitutional concern about what Trump is doing. The emergency power Trump is trying to invoke is in place for times when Congress does not have time to act. It's not a blank check for the president to override congressional power whenever he wants. For two years Trump had both houses of congress. What he put his political capital behind was not a wall but a tax cut. I'm fine with that because I think the tax cut was a great idea and the wall is a stupid publicity stunt to placate suckers who voted for him. Yeah I said it. Those who are counting on the wall are suckers! Even if Trump got every penny he was asking for by his own admission he would only build a partial extension of the already existing wall! Meanwhile Trump is destabilizing Venezuela which has already caused another refugee crisis in central America. And yet people like you can't figure out why border crossings are spiking when they had been going down. It's not hard to understand. It's not rocket science. Your boy Trump is causing the very "emergency" that you are clamoring to give him unconstitutional emergency powers to fix!

    Even if you removed every artificial incentive, they still don't want them to come - but they can't explain why - they just want you to be afraid.

    Really, their arguments make no logical sense. They just want you to fear "other peoples" instead of focusing the blame on their government.

    If they really believed any of their justifications and moralizations, they'd welcome these people when those justifications and moralizations were removed. But they still won't. They're collectivists to the core and the State is their god.

    Them? They? Collectivists?


    From you above comments, I take it you equate our forefathers and the United States Constitution with “collectivism” and something to recoil from. Of course, your thinking could be based upon inductive reasoning rather than deductive reasoning, and therefore your conclusions could all be false.

    I'm not for the CIA bringing in terrorists. Does that mean I'm against open borders? I think that NAFTA, which Trump just renamed and re-ratified is a violation of U.S. sovereignty because it allows 4 out of 5 Mexican trucks to cross the border without being inspected. (So much for your freaking wall). Does that make me open borders? I support an increase in H1B visas which would allow more of the best and the brightest from around the world to come here to work after a vigorous screening process. Does that make me open borders? I am against the destabilizing of Central American countries like Honduras (thanks Hillary and Obama) or Venezuela (thanks Hillary, Obama and Trump). Does that make me open borders? Seriously dude, you and your ilk just keep throwing around "open borders" whenever someone opposes some policy you support without any rhyme or reason. Rand Paul came up with a plan to fund Trump's stupid wall and make Mexico pay for it! And yet rather than being thankful you want to raise the fake specter of "open borders."

    You know exactly what he's probably talking about (although I'm sure there are numerous options available of unconstitutional power grabs of Trump's we could mention).

    Here is a part of the Constitution that Trump blatantly tried to violate with his declaration of a national emergency as a pretext for funding a border wall with more funding than Congress appropriated for it:
    No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law;
    It is yet to be seen if Trump will succeed at this.

    "It can be a challenge to follow the pronouncements of President Trump, as he often seems to change his position on any number of items from week to week, or from day to day, or even from minute to minute." -- Ron Paul

    So, you can't give an explanation in your own words and prefer to post an adolescent insult?

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims to be an advocate of hard working people living in the Bronx. If that is so, why is she not advocating an end to the unconstitutional “Temporary Victory Tax” of 1943, which began federal confiscation of the bread which working people have earned by the sweat of their labor?

    I take it you equate our forefathers and the United States Constitution with “collectivism” and something to recoil from.

    Of course, your thinking could be based upon inductive reasoning rather than deductive reasoning, and therefore your conclusions could all be false.


    I lied about nothing. Why do you accuse me of lying?

    Make no mistake. There is a very real war taking place on American soil and it is being won by socialists, communists and anarchists, who have successfully obstructed the American People from securing the border of their country.

    It's only a crime in the sense of a violation of a law that human beings made up. It's not a genuine crime in the sense of something that harms someone else, violating natural law.
    America and Americans are the victims.

(So much for your freaking wall). Does that make me open borders? I support an increase in H1B visas which would allow more of the best and the brightest from around the world to come here to work after a vigorous screening process. Does that make me open borders? I am against the destabilizing of Central American countries like Honduras (thanks Hillary and Obama) or Venezuela (thanks Hillary, Obama and Trump). Does that make me open borders? Seriously dude, you and your ilk just keep throwing around "open borders" whenever someone opposes some policy you support without any rhyme or reason. Rand Paul came up with a plan to fund Trump's stupid wall and make Mexico pay for it! And yet rather than being thankful you want to raise the fake specter of "open borders."
