          Obviously his personal opinion, as clearly indicated by the first two words of the sentence.

          Please don't abuse the link rule.

          Hold on. He said "it seems like some of you". Doesn't that refer to some existing post? I'd like to see any existing post here that open borders are exactly what somebody wants. I'm not looking to enforce some link rule. I just want to see an example so we can actually debate the sub.

        I'm in favor of an effective immigration policy.

        Reprehensible as it was, gassing was a conventional and accepted method for execution at the time. It is a stretch to equivocate the two.

          You want a link for "seems like"? Seriously, Zip? This is the abuse of the "link" BS I object to on this site.

            If you feel someone is abusing the link rule, don't just post "Phil---?" and assume I'm going to see it every time. Instead, please flag the post and tell me why you think the link request is unreasonable.

            Thanks.

          So let’s just deport everyone who isn’t of white, European descent.

          Sorry it seems like that to you. Strawmen are enticing. Seems to me that us political thinkers often recognize a wide spectrum of views on our "side" of the aisle, but then when it comes to conceptualizing what the other "side" thinks, we don't see a spectrum but instead only the most extreme, simplistic position, i.e., a strawman.

              "Statement" would have been a better choice of words than "bullsh^t" Dano. Let's keep the discussion civil please.

              Nope.

              It's bullsh*t.

              Don't censor me.

              The difference between your statement and mine, Dano, is that mine was intentional BS intended to underline the unintentional BS of yours.

              Your racial makeup is irrelevant to that.

              What Administration in the last 50 years has done more to address and work to control the problem of illegal immigration than the Obama Administration?

              Trump wants $5.7 billion to erect some fencing along the U.S./Mexican border claiming that will help control illegal immigration there, but he hasn't given any details on where fencing would be erected, how much would be erected, how much it would cost to patrol and maintain, what the expected results of erecting that fencing would be, or how erecting this fencing would compare to other methods of control in cost and effectiveness.

              If any of my representatives in Congress were to vote to give him that money without being able to answer those basic questions, I would vote against them in the next election.

                Yeah, that's all good and fine. I'm no fan of Obama or Trump or any of the Bushes or pretty much anybody since Ike, Even then I have concerns.

                That's not the point. Has nothing to do with what I said.

                  I know of no one advocating for open borders (even on this forum) regardless of their poltical leanings.
                  Did I happen to miss a thread or a post that says otherwise?

                  The hijacking of the Republican party by the religious right really did send the party into a tailspin of fundamentalism and black/white politics. It's really scary how it transformed the party.

                  Essentially that's what we already have. As the demographics in this country continue to change and as we continue to change from a primarily white country we will have it completely, we will undoubtedly have socialism as well. A true liberal utopia.
